With Therapy Bootcamp - using insights from neuroscience and clinical practice - you’ll discover how to make therapy an easier, less painful journey so you can get out of your therapy what you really went for - to feel better about yourself.

Hi, I'm Shrinklady, founder of myShrink. Are you agonizing over your therapy? May be you get overwhelmed in your sessions (and therapy stalls)... or the waiting between session is excruciating... 

. . . or could it be that the all-absorbing and uncontrollable feelings towards your therapist (i.e. transference) are tying you up in knots?

Therapy stirs up strong feelings in all of us not to mention that those towards your therapist can be especially tough. 

Transference shows up in many ways:

  • Maybe you only share snippets of your life with your therapist (for fear she'd really get to know who you are and then reject you).  
  • Or you worry that your feelings of wanting your therapist for your very own will get out of hand.
  • Could it be that merely sitting with your therapist (and feeling exposed) is so overwhelming, just surviving the session is a humongous task.

You've already read that it's normal to feel this way.

And you may be thinking that’s little comfort given that transference is currently hijacking your therapy.

 I hear you. 

No doubt the ferocity of your feelings have taken you by surprise. Not just the fantasies and obsessive thoughts - worse is the idea you may lose your therapist before you get through.

Did you know that some therapies are ill-suited to dealing with transference – so yes, I can hear you asking, “where does that leave me?

It’s true – just look on the forums – some people never get through their transference. Therapy is going nowhere. They're stuck and feeling powerless and this can go on for years.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Even in the midst of all that you're dealing with, you can take a more proactive approach to your therapy.

How? 

Neuroscience has the answers. 

Can you imagine not only feeling better about your therapy, but actually getting really clear about the things that you’re doing now that are helping (and that you can do more of) and those that are slowing you down.

With Therapy Bootcamp, you'll also have the tools from my clinical practice – honed by years of training and working with clients. 

  • You’ll learn to deflate overwhelming feelings, 
  • How to feel safe enough to say what’s on your mind (without self-editing) and, 
  • What you need to do to be sure the relationship with your therapist is a healing experience.
  • How to control switching from adult mode to child mode and back again

You’ll have these – for both inside and outside your sessions – to move through your transference faster and get your therapy going in the right direction.

Best of all, you’ll get out of your transference what is meant to happen – and avoid the plight of hundreds that never see the end of it.

That’s what this course is all about – giving you the clarity to see what’s blocking your progress.

That way, you’ll be empowered to use therapy to create the life you want. And isn’t that what it’s really about.

“I found your insight immensely helpful and it has enabled me to step back a little and reflect. I was amazed at how much you 'saw' in my short question!”

Who is this for?

  • If you feel overwhelmed or powerless because you have no idea how deal with your therapy and it seems to be getting worse...
  • If you're feeling stuck in your therapy, not sure whether it’s working, or wondering how much longer before you feel results...
  • If you've developed strong feelings for your therapist (i.e. transference) and you don't know if the feelings are real and whether you should end your therapy...
  • arrow-right
    If you're obsessed with your therapist and it's starting to interfere with your therapy...and your life!
  • arrow-right
    If you’re terrified that your therapist will leave you, even though there's absolutely no reason to think so...
  • arrow-right
    If your therapist seems aloof, distant, uncaring and you can't tell if s/he's really that way or it's just your problem...
  • arrow-right
    If you are unsure whether you can trust your therapist, or even whether s/he is the right one for you...
  • arrow-right
    If you’re too scared to open up or let go in front of your therapist and feel guilty that you're just wasting his time...
  • arrow-right
    If you spend too much time in therapy ‘identifying your emotional wounds’ (and too little time on healing or resolving them)..
  • arrow-right
    If you feel good at the end of your sessions, but start going downhill again a few days afterwards...
  • arrow-right
    If you feel just as bad (or worse!) when you end your sessions as when you started (and have to live with a lot of churned up emotions until the next appt)...
  • arrow-right
    If you’ve come to the realization that even though you've made a few changes you've been feeling worse since you started therapy...
  • arrow-right
    If your therapist wants to refer you to another therapist because he or she doesn't work with transference and now the panic has set in...
  • arrow-right
    If you really want to get through therapy and feel better, if only you knew how...

“Sometimes I’m so freaked out I can’t absorb what my therapist is saying during a session. The podcasts and cheatsheets help me absorb the therapy talk out of session and have given me tools to get myself grounded and feeling safer.”

How does it help?

“I designed this module to help you stay on track and avoid getting stuck in therapy.
It provides the background understanding to help you to feel less anxious in your sessions & better able to do the work that makes you feel better.

Therapy Bootcamp is based on cutting edge brain science research boiled down into jargon-free tools and insights you can use right now.

Let me show you the simple steps you can take to ease your way through transference - and to boot - with less pain and more control.”

“...I've usually withdrawn or had anger towards my therapist around transference issues, but because of what I've learned from you (thank you), this week, I discussed it with my therapist, which he agreed with and I pressed into my relationship with him and experienced a connection, however painful and many tears, to connect with him in a new way. Growth, progress and on my way to healing. Thanks so much Susan!”

Sincerely, Angela W.
