No matter what you treat, shame lies at the core of the chronic “not enoughness” that’s common in so many of your clients.
It’s the voice in their heads telling them that they are flawed, damaged, broken and fundamentally unworthy of love.
A voice that was often born in their childhood -- telling them to settle for mediocre relationships, reminding them of all their failures and convincing them to self-sabotage themselves again and again.
You want so badly for them to see they ARE ENOUGH.
But in therapy, shame is a barrier that blocks you at every turn -- making establishing trust and getting clients to open up feel impossible. The wounds run deep, their guard is up, and they question whether they even deserve help and understanding.
Now in this training you can become a Certified Shame-Informed Treatment Professional and equip yourself with the skills and tools you need to dismantle the roots of shame and guide your clients toward a more authentic narrative—one where they can see their true value and that they are enough.
Led by the expert, Dr. Patti Ashley—psychotherapist, international speaker, and bestselling author of Shame-Informed Therapy — you’ll discover how to incorporate elements of somatic psychotherapy, mindfulness, polyvagal theory, positive psychology, expressive interventions, and more so you can:
Don’t let the grip of shame continue to hold your clients back from the fulfilling lives they deserve.
Together, we’ll break down the barriers of chronic “not-enoughness” and empower your clients to rebuild their narratives with self-love, compassion, and authentic worthiness.
