The Daring Way™


The deep fear that we are not enough, that others will see us and find us wanting is a source of pain that we have all experienced at sometime in our lives. There will be many times when we have tried and failed, we have fallen… These experiences are universally part of being human.

The question then is, where do we find the courage to step forward and be seen, to pick ourselves up and start again?

Dr Brené Brown has spent many years researching what it means to show up and be seen, to live a life based on values of authenticity and courage.  She created The Daring Way™.

As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator – Candidate, I offer workshops to explore the principles of wholehearted living and worthiness based on the books Daring Greatly and Rising Strong.

If we want to fully experience love and belonging, we must believe we are worthy of love and belonging.

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings.

During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
