Today is an incredibly special day. Not only is it our first episode of 2022, on the first week of 2022, but it's the celebration of our 200th episode, and the first time a special guest joins me for an interview on the show.
She is not only an expert in her field, but she also happens to be my best friend, of whom you've heard countless stories over the years. I could think of no better person to join us for this very special day.
Verena Kacinskis is a clinical psychologist and researcher. For the past 13 years, she has been integrating the concepts and techniques from Psychology and a healthcare system called BodyTalk, seeking to deepen and expand therapeutic results for her patients.
Currently, she has been splitting her time between seeing patients and developing content to both educate and encourage self-observation, always with the premise of sharing resources that people can use in their own internal organization processes.
In today's episode we'll be talking about the wounds behind perfectionism, psychological defence mechanisms and what they are, whether perfectionism works as a distraction or a way to control. Verena shares how perfectionism begins to appear in her life and how to catch herself before it takes root (list makers, you're going to LOVE this story), as well as how to come down from a spiral of perfectionism when we're in it. We talk about whether there is ever a prize at the end of the tunnel with perfectionism, and we get to peel the layers of the onion, talking about the deep wound that is at the center of most human suffering.
A big thank you to my dear friend, and powerhouse of a woman, Verena Kacinskis for joining us in this very special interview.
