This master class is for high performing women like you, who

  • Experience overwhelm on a regular basis
  • Want to gain clarity on how this cycle perpetuates itself
  • Seek to break the cycle and gain a deeper understanding
  • Aim to navigate these situations with confidence and resilience.

Overcoming overwhelm is not a simple task, but it is absolutely achievable. We will explore three fundamental steps that will guide you towards reclaiming control over your life. Our first step is to recognise and acknowledge all the situations-the times, places and even specific individuals-that tend to tip you into overwhelm. By developing this awareness, you lay the foundation for lasting change.

Once we have recognised these triggers, we will dive deeper into the cycle of overwhelm. It's time to get curious and inquire about how this cycle feeds on itself, creating a vicious circle. Through a carefully curated set of questions, asked in the right order, you will gain a crystal-clear understanding of what precisely is perpetuating this cycle in your life. This newfound clarity becomes the key to breaking free from its grip.


Now equipped with knowledge and insight, we move to the final step-exploring more resourceful approaches to those very situations that once overwhelmed you. With a strategic mindset and a well-designed strategy in hand, you will learn to navigate these challenges with confidence and resilience. No longer will overwhelm dictate your actions and emotions.


Understanding the factors that contribute to your overwhelm is crucial. We'll be as specific and detailed as possible here, so we will:

  1. Consider how you experience overwhelm and its impact on yourself and those around you, both at work and at home. Reflect on how you typically handle overwhelm and where and when you feel it most intensely, such as specific times of the day, month or different seasons. 
  2. Analyse your reactions and behaviours when overwhelmed, as well as those of others, and identify what you currently do to alleviate this feeling. Determine what you need in those moments and how you can fulfil those needs.
  3. Explore an essential question: Why does overwhelm matter to you? Consider what purpose it serves and the effects it has on your life. Understanding the significance of overwhelm in your life will provide valuable insights for breaking the cycle and finding effective solutions.

These are the key things that will help you understand the triggers, the situations, the people and the circumstances that tip you into overwhelm.
