Is your current or past relationship causing you to feel lost, confused or alone?
If you are experiencing difficult relationship issues, or coming out of a past relationship that you need to heal from, then my online support group is for you.
This is a small, safe, intimate support group for women, where you can share your experience, be heard, supported and offered perspectives for you to ponder. Over the course of 8 weeks, we’ll dive deep to uncover negative relationship patterns, helping to illuminate what’s really going on with your relationship that’s contributing to your unhappiness, and help you define the steps you need to take to get clarity, confidence and peace of mind.
When our relationships are stressful, it’s valuable to strengthen yourself. That’s why each week also starts with a powerful teaching segement designed to empower you, inspire you and connect with your own authenticity. The combination of sharing & support plus teaching segments makes this group unlike any other!
The teaching segments will be brought to life via group discussion, journaling, worksheets and more. They are as follows:
Feel unlovable, unworthy, or not good enough? We’ll identify the script that’s currently running your life, explore where those core beliefs came from to shift your self-perception, and remove the guilt or shame that doesn’t belong to you. Change your beliefs about who you are and what you are deserving of.
Unsure or unable to trust what you feel? Our own bodiescome equipped with their own internal guidance systems, which always point us in the right direction. Most of us have spent so much time and energy trying to do what everyone else thinks we should that we are unable to recognize or honor our inner voice, trust it and learn how to get clear on what it is we really need.
What kind of mask do you wear in an effort to preserve relationships? Maybe you tolerate negative behaviors in order to feel the connection or say yes when you mean no to keep peace, or otherwise engage in behaviors that are not true to who you really are. Discover powerful practices to relate to others from your core.
Do you correlate love with past or current experiences of manipulation, hurt, or betrayal? This can inadvertently lead to self-sabotage of present and future relationships in a variety of ways. Explore your experiences of love, and shift your outlook to one that is inspiring and congruent with your own authenticity.
Do you have a difficult time asking for what you need, or do you try to get your needs met in a way that disempowers you? Your needs within your relationship such as to be understood, to be seen, to feel emotionally safe are all important and valid. Learn the difference between your inner “adaptive child” verses your “wise adult” so that you can respond to relationship challenges in a way that elevates and empowers you.
Do you have a hard time setting boundaries, or does doing so cause you to feel guilty? Define how to know when to set boundaries, how to communicate them to others, what to do if they are not honored, and how to handle your subsequent guilt, self-doubt, or other uncomfortable emotions you might feel.
Do you tend to avoid emotions? Most of us have trouble feeling emotions. You’ll learn why we avoid feeling discomfort, what the steps are to process our owing feelings, how to manage your emotions as well as communicate them.
Do you wonder what aspects of a relationship are expected to be changeable and which are not? Explore your circumstances as to whether to cultivate the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, or the courage to change the things you can.
What Are The Sessions Like?
Online & Intimate. You, me and a small number of other women will be able to see one another via video online, where we can take turns sharing, listening, and learning together, how we begin to create positive and transformational change in our lives.
It takes a lot of courage to face and own the fact that something isn’t quite right; or acknowledge that you aren’t sure what to do; or that you’re unhappy and aren’t sure why; or that you feel you’ve lost your way.
It can be scary to reach out for help. It leaves you feeling vulnerable. But vulnerability is what allows true connection, growth and understanding. It’s the place where transformation is born. And that’s what happens in these groups.
“I was hesitate to attend at first, but quickly got over my fears as I got to know the other women and how much we actually had in common. These women were very supportive, non-judgmental, and enlightened me on many life perspectives. I found that this group gave insightful tools to help build my self-esteem and changed my attitude about my relational life. I would highly recommend attending this group with Michelle Joy to anyone who seeks a very effective Marriage and Family Therapist.”
– Lisa K., San Mateo, CA
Join this group for support, empowerment, insights, find strength in numbers, and finding and connecting with other women who are experiencing challenging relationship issues can be restorative and therapeutic, reminding you that it isn’t something innately wrong with you; it’s just the dynamic or pattern you’re currently caught in. What you’ll discover, is that you’re not alone–and you don’t have to figure it all out on your own.
