Episode 36 might be my favorite episode of Sure Babe yet! You don't have to be in a relationship to get something out of this episode; whether you are in a relationship or not, you are a human with a hardwired need for attachment. In this episode my husband Sam and I interview relationship expert and Licensed Marriage and Family therapist Figs O'Sullivan. We discuss the core needs we have as humans, how we get wounded and how we carry all this into our relationships. By far the best part of this episode was learning how to find conflict solutions in our relationships and connect more with one another. 

If you want in on all this good stuff Figs is offering "Sure, Babe" listeners 33% off his Conflict Solutions course with the code: SUREBABE.

Hello and welcome back to another couples episode! This is episode 35 and number 1 in a 3 part series called "How Our Premarital Class Failed Us".

Sam and I frequently joke about how innocent and idealized we were when we were a young couple and how ill equipped we were to be happily married. 

It wasn't until after years of therapy and "doing the work" on ourselves that we discovered how to be in a loving and life-giving marriage. 

In this episode we get real about all the things we wish we knew before getting married. 

Hope you enjoy!

Episode 34 is all about finding your confidence and owning your story! I've talked about my struggle with anxiety here before but this is the first time I shared my story in Canada at a women's empowerment dinner hosted by Viviscal and Toppik. It was an empowering night of breaking barriers and allow women to share their stories of how they've struggled and found confidence. 

My guests on the show today are two inspiring women I met at this event. Iva Grbesic @ivagrbesic and Sandra DiTella @momsmakeupstashtake2. Iva is a Cityline Style Expert, which is one of Canada’s leading national lifestyle shows and Blogger at Falling in Style. Sandra is the Blogger and Content Creator of momsmakeupstash.com and a cancer survivor. These two women bravely share their personal stories on how they not only regained hair confidence but started owning their story and loving themselves. 

In case you are madly googling where to find these awesome hair products...IN CANADA – both brands are available at Shoppers Drug Mart, or you can go on to their websites Viviscal.ca or ToppikCanada.ca to learn more.

Episode 30 is a fun one! Sam and I get real about how we spent the last week disconnected from one another having triggered each other’s past emotional wounds. In this episode we talk about how we used the enneagram to reconnect and work together as a team again. 

We highly recommend taking THIS enneagram personality test and reading these books: The Sacred Enneagram by Christopher Heuertzand and The Road Back To You by Ian Morgan Cron.

Super exciting news! Chrissy will be releasing a 30 minute meditation once a month for our Patrons supporting us at $5.99/month! Click HERE to support Sure Babe and be eligible for our monthly meditations. 

Let me just start episode 29 by saying, it's been a long road to loving and accepting my body. In young adulthood I struggled severely with poor body image and an eating disorder, but that is what led me to becoming a therapist. Meditation was one of the most effective interventions that helped me overcome my eating disorder; it helped me uncover distorted beliefs that did not serve me and continues to help me hear from my true self. 

In this episode I walk you through a mediation that I developed to help you reprogram your brain to release shameful beliefs and view your body with gratitude and grace. Feel free to play it in the car and around your kiddos just don't close your eyes or get too relaxed. To get the fullest effect try to find time for yourself to get in a comfortable place and close your eyes so you can fully go into your head and heart.

I hope you are filled with joy in your true self today!
