MWC 93: Releasing Protective Strategies with Nicola Holmes

Super-moms often get stuck in cognitive and behavioral patterns that feel comfortable but prevent them from living their best life. In this episode of the Moms Without Capes Podcast, I will be talking with Life Coach Nicola Holmes about how perfectionism, people-pleasing, and other protective strategies keep us safe yet need to be dealt with so that we can move forward in our lives. Join therapist, life coach, and mom Onnie Michalsky as she seeks to inspire moms to take responsibility for their own care and put themselves higher on their own to-do lists.
