About the Webinar

60 minutes of immersive self-awareness, compassionate acceptance, and impactful action.

This interactive and reflective session will empower participants with meaningful personalized learnings for navigating performance anxiety and related emotional challenges commonly experienced in academic and professional scenarios by a young professional.

Some of the following might feel familiar to you: Am I ready enough? What if I make a mistake? Is the first impression really the last impression? Will l ever be worthy of success? Maybe some people are just born confident!? Do others have it easier!?

As a Certified Trauma Therapist, I utilize a nervous system-informed and whole-person approach to anxiety management and mental wellbeing that honors every individual’s unique personal and cultural contexts.

You may be in your 20s, 30s, or 40s, this virtual session is designed to be of practical benefit to you if you aspire to persistently operate from a place of enhanced courage and confidence in your academic and professional activities.

In this webinar, you will have the opportunity to engage in experiential learning and devise efficacious action-steps to cultivate a grounded presence and boost self-assurance in approaching situations such as meetings with supervisors, interviews, exams, conference meet and greets, short and long-term deliverables, work presentations, and more.
