Emotional Empowerment Course Curriculum

In each session there will be 30 minutes for Q&A, so you can ask me through the chat box or live any questions or get feedback or support on anything you are navigating.

Session 1: Why are emotions so overwhelming?

  • What is happening in your brain when emotions activate? What is happening to your body and your nervous system?

  • In this session you’ll learn how to read your own body and nervous system to identify exactly what support you need to offer yourself. You will start to create a map of resources and support for yourself.

  • Outcome: You’ll end this session with a powerful overview that will unlock your understanding of all of the emotional patterns that have stopped you living the life that you want.

Session 2: Powerful techniques for coming out of any overwhelming state and how to retrain your nervous system to restore inner calm

  • When emotions haven’t felt safe to process through our bodies, or when we have lived in experiences of too much for too long, our nervous system gets stuck in the stress response of survival-mode.

  • We want to release the tension in our bodies and complete the stress response cycle so that we can retrain our nervous system out of overwhelm. And we also want to restore inner calm and inner regulation when things feel too much.

  • This will be a practical session of nervous system regulation exercises and somatic embodiment stress releasing techniques. You will be learning and practising techniques that work with different sensations – from a desire to run, to a desire to shut down and hide, to the desire to argue or the compulsion to ‘people please’ and fix other people’s emotional experiences.

  • Outcome: You’ll end this session knowing exactly what to do when overwhelm/survival mode hits. From panic or the mists of rage, total shutdown to endless frantic stressful busyness. Any and all overwhelming states will be covered.

Session 3 & 4: Emotional releasing – series of exercises

  • These sessions will start the work of moving emotions through our bodies. I will guide you through exercises related to integrating emotions through movement, felt sensation, physical support and self-guidance.

  • You’ll get a clear understanding of how to work with any emotion, and plenty of ideas on how to practice this between sessions. And you’ll learn how different techniques support different emotions.

  • Outcome: You’ll end this session knowing exactly how to support yourself to move any emotion through your body to release and integrate them

Session 5: How to support other people’s emotional & survival responses

  • One of the most popular sessions as it’s all about transforming the texture of our relationships.

  • You’ll learn what to do when you notice someone is in the thick of a survival or emotional activation.

  • What to do when someone is ranting at you or terrified.

  • How to see what’s really happening when someone is moaning and complaining, shouting or totally withdrawn, panicky or full of endless sad stories.

  • You will learn very practical tools to support people to help them move out of any overwhelm/survival state.

  • You’ll also learn how to help people integrate any emotion – from rage to despair, shame to grief. And finally, you’ll learn how to support yourself so you don’t get activated into mirroring emotions.

  • These skills will be transformative to all of your relationships. If you are seeking more connection and emotionally safe relationships, where you feel more heard, seen and understood – this lesson gives you the skills you need to transform your relationships.

  • Outcome: You’ll end this session knowing how to avoid emotional chaos that might have lasted days at a time. You can use these tools to repair emotional ruptures, become more emotionally connected to the people you love and bring emotional safety into all of your intimate relationships.

Session 6: Core emotional healing.

  • You’ll learn all about why emotions keep repeating, and how to trace them back to their original imprinting so you can work to release and heal them at their core.

  • This will be a practical session where I will help you explore the deeper emotional patterns you are holding around everyday emotional activations. I will guide you through your own practice as well as do some emotional releasing of whatever you uncover.

  • Outcome: You’ll end this session knowing how to release the emotions from past experiences that are still trapped in your body. Which may be some of the most painful and challenging things you are carrying, and learn how to release them so you feel lighter and with less heavy emotional load.

Session 7: How to meet our unmet needs

  • Our emotions have wisdom to share with us about the needs we have that are not being met. Perhaps it’s anger from not speaking up, or sadness that has a need for more authentic connection, or frustration about a lack of us implementing boundaries.

  • This session will explore the connection between needs and emotions, how to connect with your emotions to discover what needs they are trying to communicate and, most importantly, how to meet those needs in daily life.

  • We will explore common needs related to different emotions like shame, fear, despair, hopelessness and anger.

  • Outcome: You’ll end this session having discovered how to compile your own personal guidebook on how to bring your needs front and centre into your own life so overwhelming emotions don’t need to activate.

Session 8: Emotionally safe communication

  • How can we have discussions with people, sort out conflicts and communicate our needs in a way that is clear, empowering and doesn’t result in emotionally chaotic and confusing conversations?

  • How do we bring our needs into conversations with people as well as be able to hear other people’s needs?

  • In this session, you’ll learn how to advocate for yourself and negotiate your needs with others, as well as how to give support through a needs-based framework.

  • Outcome: The end result is that you’ll know how to have emotionally empowering conversations – to both state your needs and be heard, as well as be able to hear other people’s needs.
