Do you want to be able to speak your mind with confidence?
To say no strongly and firmly, without guilt, when necessary?
Do you want to have a strong, clear sense of identity, of your needs, rights, desires and preferences, and be able to voice these?
To no longer feel responsible for the feelings and wellbeing of others and be comfortable prioritising your own needs instead?
Do you want to speak out against injustice, including towards oneself?
And to finally feel enough as you are without needing to be useful or helpful to anyone?
Then You Want Better Boundaries!
In the Better Boundaries Program you will develop the ability to:
Set appropriate boundaries - neither over-boundaried or under-boundaried.
Overcome the default Fawn response from childhood which sets you up for an adulthood of people pleasing.
Understand the root cause of anxiety and depression (hint: the origin is in the body not the mind), and how to resolve it.
Restore a healthy fight response, so you have access to self-protective anger when necessary.
Stop suppressing thoughts and emotions and start expressing in an authentic, grounded way.
Master your emotions and be more attuned to yourself and others.
And much, much more.
One 90 min, 1:1, onboarding goal setting session. In this session we go deep on what is holding you back, identify key stressors and set clear intentions for what you want to achieve in our time together.
Three additional, highly customised, 60 min 1:1 coaching sessions. You don't fit the program, the program fits you.
Six group coaching sessions. These sessions have a maximum of 8 participants and are online via zoom.
Access to the Client Resource Portal, with audio, video and pdf resources to assist your transformation.
Membership of the Better Boundaries Club for 6 months, allowing you direct access to Joanna Mon-Thurs.
This IS for you if:
You strongly desire to express yourself authentically and assertively, but you don’t know where to begin. (Remember: assertive is not aggressive).
You are sick and tired of being sick and tired and long to experience the joy you know is possible.
You take responsibility for your own healing and growth.
You want to use your power for good – for the betterment of yourself and others.
You are already a ways along your growth journey and have developed a degree of self-awareness and emotional maturity.
You are completely fed up with people pleasing holding you back in life and are ready to do whatever it takes to get your life back.
This is NOT for you if:
You have no problem setting boundaries and think people pleasers are crazy!
You have a complex trauma history and have not received any support or therapy for this, and have done no personal study. You would be best suited to working longer term with a Psychotherapist or similar.
You are not ready to take responsibility for yourself, your own healing and progress.
You are looking for a quick-fix. Resolving the fear that inhibits boundary setting involves laying down new neural pathways and slowly expanding capacity as the fear discharges. If you attempt to go too fast, you will end up in overwhelm.
Clients who have developed better boundaries say:
“I was just so stressed, and so tired of being stressed. I thought Jo would give me tips and hints about how to manage that stress but it was so much more than that. It was actually how to unlock where the stress was coming from. Why was I pushing myself to take on this big workload? We examined the cause. Once I was able to step back and let go of those fears, the stress went.“ – Adrienne M, Business owner
“Honestly I’ve never spent money on myself to look at past traumas and work through them. In many ways I blamed myself and took on burdens that are not mine. Joanna helped me see how things really are and gave me some good grounding tools if that fear creeps in again.
I feel like me again and that I’m back on track. Feeling more confident and happy within myself which really matters … no more self blame. I’m back but better!“ – Paulette Collins
“I feel like I’m walking away with the tools I need to be more confident in myself and to make decisions moving forward that will enable me to truly be myself and live the life that I want.“ – Tracey B
“I came to see Jo at a time of crisis in my life. Due to my own interest in psychology I have found counselling in the past to be largely ineffective because I wasn’t hearing anything I didn’t already know. Jo, on the other hand, has a deep knowledge and vast skillset that helped me to discover things I didn’t even know that I didn’t know about myself.
I feel a lot stronger, clearer of mind and happier. I have a sense of contentment that I’ve not felt in over 10 years. I am so grateful for Jo and for what she brings to those of us in need of help, particularly when you feel as if you’ve exhausted all options.“ – Sarah Ross, Manager
“Joanna is a wonderful and caring coach, she has a huge capacity to hold a safe and nurturing space. She is highly intuitive and has a wonderful attunement with you during sessions which allows the sessions to flow with ease.
She is a master at resolving stress and her knowledge and ability to educate you on your own nervous system regulation is outstanding. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to live a stress free life!“ – M Spiteri, Business owner
“The coaching sessions with Joanna were helpful because they helped me to see I needed a change & it wasn’t the one I thought I needed!!
The sessions are casual & comfortable, like just hanging out talking with a friend – who helps you to see what you can’t.
Jo also has a way of letting you work things out for yourself, she guides you. Guiding me to work out what the change that I needed was has been most helpful. I feel more in control of how I’m feeling and also feel like I can cope much better with any issues that arise.“ – Angie Ellison, Accountant
“Compared to where I was before I started the sessions I feel a lot better about myself, and a lot more accepting of myself rather than critical.
The sessions are great – Joanna is lovely to talk to – non-judgemental, makes you feel great about yourself. The sessions are very relaxed and it makes you feel at ease.
Thanks Joanna I feel a lot more in control of myself now – and where I am heading to have a happier life than I was making previously.“ – Kelly Lelieveld
