From Stuck to Unstuck
Ft. Dr Patricia Zurita
From stuck to unstuck - how you can move from fear into action, and how to make your mind’s chatter your new best friend!
Feeling stuck? Sick of fear getting the best of you when you need to take action?
Clinical Psychologist Dr Patricia Zurita may just be able to give you a key to your freedom.
In this amazing episode of Ellis in Wunderland, we get curious with Dr Z and explore ways to help us get comfortable with the uncomfortable and shift us into action when we are overwhelmed by fear and feeling locked in.
With her beautiful analogy of a coin, she encourages us to imagine our problems differently.
“If you imagine being stuck on one side of the coin, what is the stuff on the other side? What is the stuckness trying to show you?”
From this perspective, the other side of the coin is the stuff we care about and have just forgotten how to access.
And lucky for us, Dr Z provides us with some great wisdom and practical exercises to help us recognise what’s on the other side, and shift into action despite all the mind’s chatter.
Dr Z has worked as a in the field of Psychology for over sixteen years helping clients get unstuck from problems related to fear-based struggles, and is the author of several books including ‘ACT beyond OCD: An Acceptance and Commitment Therapy workbook for adults’ and ‘Parenting a troubled teen: using acceptance and commitment therapy’.
If you experience anxiety, are sick of feeling stuck, need some tips to move into action or are sick of fighting against your own mind, then this is the episode for you.

Communicate with impact
Ft. Crystallin Dillon
Communication and understanding is what often creates the strongest connections. Yet for some reason, many of us find it extremely difficult to connect the two! Whether you can’t communicate how you really feel, or perhaps you are communicating, but your message is not being interpreted in the way you intended.
This is an extremely frustrating reality for many, and is often what causes havoc in relationships both personally and professionally. In this episode, Crystallin is unpacking the importance of understanding how to communicate with impact, so that your messages, and responses are deeply understood by yourself and the receiver.
Crystallin is the founder of an amazing community called “The Bay Area T-Group” and she has an abundance of knowledge on the practice of mindful communication, designed to cultivate self-awareness and thriving relationships in both your personal and professional life.
In this episode, Crystallin gives us key insights into how even people with great skill sets can flounder and fail if they cannot communicate effectively and build strong, resilient relationships.
Crystallin helps us get clear on how to communicate your message openly and effectively, so you can make an impact and create thriving connections across your personal and professional life.
