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.

In this episode Justen shares his story of remarkable transformation, from feeling like he was pretty sure he was going to die, to buying a one way ticket to the Bahamas in the a last ditch effort to see whether extracts of the African root medicine Ibogo, (the purified alkaloid ibogaine) could help him turn things around. Follow Justen through his experience of having his mind wiped clean and a how he used the post treatment effects of greater neuroplasticity to write a new script for all areas of his life.
Justen shares wise tips of how we can all escape the “boxed in” life and fill the emptiness that led him to his addictions.
