How to Break the Cycle of People-Pleasing with Mindset Coach Suzanne Culberg
On this episode of Calmly Coping, I spoke with Suzanne Culberg about how to break the cycle of people-pleasing.
Suzanne is an international mindset coach, speaker and author, who helps over-givers and people-pleasers learn to say ‘No’ to others in a way that feels good, so that they can say ‘Yes’ to themselves. Through her signature online program “Why W8?” Suzanne has helped hundreds of women break the cycle of putting themselves last and instead build the confidence to set boundaries.
In this conversation, Suzanne shares why boundaries are crucial for managing anxiety, how to establish them without feeling selfish, and why worrying about others’ opinions can hold us back. Get ready for an empowering and insightful discussion with Suzanne Culberg.
