Daniela’s motivation to begin a learning process came from wanting to pursue her childhood dream of making and selling her own collection of clothing and accessories.
What stopped Daniela achieving her goal was her lifelong doubt whether she was good enough and could achieve her dream. We made a breakdown of the different aspects of this challenge and took each one step-by-step until she achieved her aim.
To begin, we dedicated sessions to gaining greater body awareness. Through these sessions Daniela learnt how she could breathe superficially and hold tension in her chest. She developed her ability to breathe with greater depth and let go of holding her chest, enabling her to be present, focused and have a higher level of energy.
As Daniela developed greater body awareness, she found when she doubted herself she would breathe little and tense her chest. She practiced noticing and stopping these patterns in her daily life.
Daniela’s increased attention and control went hand-in-hand with increasing her ability to manage different parts of the project’s development. She learnt to stop herself procrastinating and worrying about how each stage of the project would turn out. Daniela spent less time being overwhelmed, doubtful and lacking in confidence.
