Therapy: Deconstructed

 We are all unknowingly wearing our limitations within ourselves. 

Dr. Bonnie Wims talks about her transformative journey deep into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle, which was a source of anxiety but also a profound exploration of self-discovery. In the internal thickets of fears, limitations, and negative self-talk, she understood that we are wearing all that as a coat on a daily basis. This heavy burden of barriers is not helping to move us forward.

The challenge lay in dismantling self-imposed restrictions, one by one. Dr. Wims urged herself and all of us to embark on a journey of introspection, asking profound questions about the definitions and negative self-talk we are living as part of ourselves. In what ways do you limit yourself today? And in what ways can you challenge that?

It is time to identify the moments when we downplayed our worth, when we failed to believe in ourselves, and when we limited our potential and then to remove that burden through therapy.

What is Therapy: Deconstructed?

Society has led us to believe that therapy is for those with deep-seated issues and that it’s not for those of us who are “successful and stable”. The Therapy: Deconstructed podcast, hosted by Dr. Bonnie Wims, debunks the myths and societal beliefs about therapy and explains not only what therapy is, but also how it can help anyone who’s facing obstacles in their lives.

As a therapist, coach, and a UK Chartered Counseling Psychologist specializing in helping the global community, Dr. Bonnie has helped innumerable people get from where they are to where they’d like to be. She’s “your someone else” who is there for you when you need to bounce things off of so that you can better understand yourself. And she does it in a warm and intelligent style that’s peppered with levity.
