Reprogram your subconscious mind and increase your magnetism
When we are stuck instead of resolving problems, we endlessly repeat them. This is because we are often trapped in repetitive unconscious behaviours that are deeply rooted in trauma. Dr Samina will you help you get to the root of your problems as quickly as possible so that you can understand unconscious patterns of thinking and behaviours that are keeping you stuck. Together we will look at habits and behaviours that are stopping you from taking control of your life.

Master self-love so you can start to have a healthy relationship with yourself.
Many of us are living alone during this pademic and have gone months without seeing our families and friends. So now more than ever it is essential that we practice good self-care that focuses on the mind, body and soul.
Find sources of comfort such as taking a bath, practicise good sleep hygiene, create a sacred place in your home for dedicated journalling, cook yourself a delicious meal, take up an online course, learn a new language, meditate and get working on your body.

Recognise abandonment trauma and why your relationships may not be working.
When we have unresolved trauma we are more likely to be sensitive in relationships. We feel highly anxious, rejected and abandoned by those close to us. Abandonment is often rooted in childhood. As a child you may have been denied your own feelings, been neglected or had a caretaker who was emotionally unavailable. As a result you learnt to be quiet and unattach yourself to people. You may notice yourself pulling away from conversations, craving for external validation and resisting positive change.

1. Critic - our biggest enemy is our internal critic. Watch out for, tame and restructure that internal chatter by adjusting or correcting limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
