ONLINE INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP

 HOW TO STOP BEING A PEOPLE PLEASER

using “The Four Agreements” (Don Miguel Ruiz)

Co-hosted by Dr. Kate Dow & Eric Bensoussan

How we show up in our relationships effects every part of our life; our happiness, our physical health, our work/careers, our families, our friendships, our wellbeing.

How do you know you are a people pleaser?

  • Do you pretend to be Ok when you aren’t?
  • Do you say yes when you mean no?
  • Do you stay on the phone, even when you don’t want to?
  • Do you go along with others’ wants, even when you don’t like it?
  • Do you help others to make them like you?

Being a people pleaser is exhausting, time consuming and doesn’t really work. We know it feels like it’s in your DNA, and it seems that you have no other choice.

But you are here because you are ready to explore with us as we show you that there is another way:

– It won’t ever make you happy putting others first.
– It won’t ever make people like you and treat you well.
– It won’t ever make you feel valued and loved.

People pleasing only leads to burnout, anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem, sadness, and resentment.

Are you tired of:

– Feeling unimportant and ignored?
– Being resentful and disempowered?
– Never getting what you want or even knowing what that is anymore?

Good, You are in the right place.

We both have been there and done it. We have both lived as miserable people pleasers, suffering greatly in our marriages and worked very hard to recover our sense of who we are, what really matters and how can we live more free and happy.

​Now we want to share that with you and that’s why we created this workshop.

You will receive the support, guidance and tools you need to get you started on your new life being more clear, honest and confident in relationships, whether it is with your parents, your friends, your boss, your partner or yourself.

MEET DR. KATE & COACH ERIC:

We use The Four Agreements from the same named book, authored by don Miguel Ruiz as a framework to accelerate your learning process. 

These agreements help us strengthen our mental capacity for change and transformation. We will describe them and how they relate with people pleasing in the workshop.

The Four Agreements are:

  1. Be Impeccable With Your Word 
  2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
  3. Don’t Make Assumptions 
  4. Always Do Your Best

“Coming from a dysfunctional alcoholic family, I grew up being the helper and gave my power away in every relationship. I learned the hard way and suffered greatly.

It is my passion to support others in their transformation and awakening…”
