Episode 46: When you have no idea what “being yourself” even means – with Carlos DelaPlaya

So much of this work is about coming back to our true, authentic selves.
But what does that even mean??
What if you don’t know who you are, and what is even authentic to you?
First off, you are SO not alone.
I’m still figuring it out for myself.
And today, I have a special guest, one of my favorite people – Carlos DelaPlaya to talk through exactly this. Carlos DelaPlaya is a life + self-expression coach. As a self-proclaimed “Prince of Magnetism,” Carlos supports recovering people-pleasers, the “weirdos” of society, mystics, artists, creatives, and LGBTQIA+ to “step into their villain era,” take up space, setting boundaries, and more. Carlos is also an expert on challenging painful emotions such as grief, rage, shame and the “shadow” parts of the human experience, helping his clients learn to navigate those moments and transmute them into personal superpowers and deep self-intimacy.

Episode 44: Taking Back Your Power from Chronic Pain with Dr. Howard Schubiner

If you haven’t heard of Dr. Schubiner (or even if you have), then this is an absolute must-listen. Thanks to him, we have massive research supporting mind-body medicine and a completely different understanding of chronic pain & how to treat it effectively. Together we discuss how to take back your power from pain, and well-researched methods to unlearn your pain. We also dive into how perfectionism, pressure & people pleasing can all play a role in keeping pain around. “A certified Internist for nearly 40 years, Dr Schubiner is a prominent advocate of using Mind-Body medicine and therapies to treat chronic pain symptoms. He is an author of several books including ‘Unlearn Your Pain’, and his latest work, entitled ‘Unlearn Your Anxiety and Depression’. He has also been featured in a recent film release called ‘This Might Hurt’ that follows three chronic pain patients who have each spent years trying to cure their symptoms through modern medicine, without success. Previous to his medical career Dr Schubiner practised mindfulness and meditation teaching, which later served as the perfect combination of spiritual connection and mind-body medicine approach to offer to his patients and students of his work. Dr Schubiner is one of the leading physicians in the mind-body chronic pain management world. His procedures follow the same principles that Dr. Sarno taught, including carefully assessing each patient for diagnosis then addressing the patient’s mindset and emotional regulation. He writes regular blog posts, talks at specialist events and participates in curable’s live webinars and other online content such as podcast interviews regularly. Dr Schubiner’s website is packed with great information” (Bio taken from mytmsjourney.com)

Episode 41: The Surprising Belief that Blocks Positive Change!

Episode 22: Nerding Out About Pain & Humor with Tawny Kross

 

Today is a special episode of the UCP podcast because we have our first ever guest!!!  Welcome to Dr. Tawny Kross.

Today we discuss all things nerdy, especially pain science.  We also go into why humor is such a crucial (and fun!) thing to bring in during your healing journey.

Dr. Tawny Kross graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Duke University in 2013. She has worked in a Veterans Affairs hospital for nearly a decade now. Through the course of her practice, she has developed a very comprehensive and integrative approach to PT, which evolved from the necessity of such an approach in her work with the complexities of those who have chronic pain. This includes nutrition, hypnosis, guided imagery, mindfulness among other practices. Focusing on mental health and being trauma-sensitive is of particular importance, as many of her clients have experienced military sexual trauma. She helps her clients move beyond pain and fear by connecting them with internal motivations, guiding them to see innate strengths and realize their inner healing abilities. She recently started her own business, Kross Centered Care – Integrative PT, Health and Wellness in order to bring her expertise to more people. Visit her on Instagram.

Episode 21: New Take On Resolutions

In this episode we dive into intentionally sitting with discomfort.  Which sounds weird, until you realize that we spend so much of our energy desperately trying to avoid discomfort (which doesn’t even work).

If you’re in chronic pain, you’re no stranger to discomfort as it is – what if you could choose to use it as something to fuel you, rather than exhaust you?

If so, you’re SO not alone, and this episode is for you! Today I break down why this is so common, my own experience with my aversion to self-compassion and why addressing this is so critical to addressing chronic pain!!

As always, you can find me on Instagram or here.

Episode 15: ‘Good’ Advice Is Never The Whole Story

Soundbites are EVERYWHERE.

And they aren’t necessarily wrong – they are often discussing an outcome though, and jump past the work it can take to achieve that outcome.⁠ ⁠So we read these, and then beat ourselves up for not having already achieved them!⁠ ⁠Nuance is KEY.

In this episode, I discuss this pervasive issue, and then talk about 3 common “sound bites” I hear that when interpreted in certain ways become more harmful than helpful.⁠ ⁠One of them is “no pain, no gain” – my take on it might surprise you!⁠

 Listen in to hear the rest!⁠

Episode 10: Redefining Trauma

All too often, trauma is dismissed because it ‘wasn’t that bad’ or it ‘doesn’t count’, but underneath all of this, there is a very real physiological reaction that is occurring that is leading to nervous system sensitization and therefore, chronic pain.

In this episode, I offer a different take on trauma, and why the word ‘trauma’ is problematic in the first place – and offer an alternative way to look at it.

Whether or not you think you have trauma, if you have chronic pain, you MUST listen in to this episode.

I’ll let you in on what doesn’t work in addressing, this…and of course…how you can actually heal this and decrease your nervous system sensitivity in the process.
