Today's guest is so impactful to the millions of people that she supports online, it only made sense to bring her back for a second session. Dr. Nicole LePera, also known as The Holistic Psychologist, started as a clinical psychologist in private practice, but often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy, wanting more for her patients and for herself.
Nothing short of a paradigm shift, Dr. LePera's teachings empower the individual to break free from trauma cycles and create who they want to become. Her latest workbook, How To Meet Yourself, hits bookstores on December 6th. It's now up for pre-order, and I highly recommend it.
In this one – we outline the three levels of her workbook and the impact each has on our understanding of self, jump on the story loop for a ride through human neurology, learn ways to connect a disconnected nervous system, and so much more.
If you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or even underwhelmed by your life and the world around you, this is the perfect episode for you. Dr. LePera’s voice breaks through the noise with clarity and purpose that will leave you inspired and ready for more.
