Anna is the facilitator of these groups and is extremely relational, authentic and real in her approach. She aims to live wholeheartedly and intentionally puts the concepts of Brené’s work into practice on a daily basis.

Individual sessions are usually held at Anna’s counselling room in Norwood and go for 1 hour.

The Daring Way™

The Daring Way™ is a course to discuss issues such as empathy, vulnerability, shame, worthiness, authenticity and courage. Through discussion and teaching videos from Brené Brown we will talk about the things that matter. We will talk about issues that most people avoid in our society and we will see how talking about them and going the journey together, helps us to live more wholeheartedly and begin to make sense of how we relate to those around us.

The following topics are covered in The Daring Way™:

  • Values
  • Trust
  • Vulnerability
  • Empathy and Self-Compassion
  • The Arena’s that you live and work in
  • Shame: What is it and understanding it
  • The Armory: What do you do and use to protect yourself emotionally
  • Identities and Triggers
  • Authenticity
  • Gratitude
The Daring Way™ Testimonies:

“Anna was warm, engaging and authentic and because she has walked this journey, her own experiences are relatable. This is content that taps into the fundamentals of the human experience and the world would be a better place if we were okay with being vulnerable.” – Bec

“A space where you can express yourself and not feel/be judged. Great learning opportunity. Has been very freeing for me. I feel more open to expressing myself more honestly, have more energy, enthusiasm and more accepting of myself – authentic.” – Kaye

Rising Strong™

The physics of vulnerability are simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life. Here’s how Brené describes the progression of her work:
The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you.
Daring Greatly – Be all in.
Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again.

The following topics are covered in Rising Strong™:

  • Values
  • Offloading hurt
  • Understanding your emotions, thoughts and behaviours
  • Rumbling with themes such as:
    • Vulnerability
    • Shame
    • Boundaries, Integrity & Generosity
    • Trust
    • Grief & Forgiveness
    • Anxiety
    • Criticism
  • Discovering key learning in the process
  • Integrating & Creativity
