Overcoming Perfectionism and People-Pleasing

Emma McAdam via Udemy

(4 Reviews)


You look tired.

I mean, not on the outside, on the outside you look like you’ve got it all together. People who meet you see a high achiever, an immaculate appearance, you’re never confrontational. But despite trying to do everything right, deep down you feel hollow and exhausted.

You feel like you’re never good enough.

Despite trying so hard, you’re your own worst critic. Maybe you replay every situation in your head over and over, maybe your relationships feel shallow or distant.

If any of this sounds like you, you may be a perfectionist or a people pleaser.

Perfectionists and people-pleasers spend enormous amounts of time and energy working to be the best, the brightest, and the nicest. They twist themselves in knots trying to be what they think they should be in order to finally feel like they’re enough--in their own eyes and in the eyes of others.

But at what cost?

In this course, Dr. Carly LeBaron explores what perfectionism and people-pleasing are, how they negatively impact your life, and how to break free from those old habits to embrace who you truly are.

Are you ready to let go of the mask, of the fragile shell that you carry around, and replace it with real relationships, self-love, and finally feel a sense of peace?

Are you ready to become authentic and happy?

In this course you’ll learn why all that trying so hard to get rid of your flaws is backfiring. And you'll learn what to do instead. So give it a try. This course is backed by a 30 day full refund if you're not 100% satisfied.

Who this course is for:

  • Perfectionists
  • People pleasers
  • Anyone who feels like they're "Never good enough"
  • People who are tired of always trying to make everyone happy all the time

Hi there! I’m Emma McAdam, I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I love helping people change. But I get it that understanding mental health can be confusing and stressful, but I also know that there’s hope-you can change your brain and resolve painful emotions- and I can walk you through that process.

I’ve been working in the field of change and growth since 2004. I got my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Utah State University and I’m currently licensed in the state of Utah. I’ve worked in settings like Juvenile Corrections, Adventure Therapy programs, High Schools, Wilderness Therapy programs, an Eating Disorder Treatment Center, a Residential Treatment Center, and Outpatient Therapy.

It can be so hard for so many people to access mental health resources. There’s big obstacles like cost, stigma, not knowing where to look or lack of high-quality local resources, and these make it hard for people to be able to get basic mental health services.

When my first child was born (I have three little girls), I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible when they were little, so I stopped seeing as many clients. But the calls kept coming. Faced with an overwhelming need, and an overactive mind, I decided to do one small thing- I started making videos on mental health topics in my wee-morning hours while my babies were asleep. In bite sized little nuggets, I make mental health skills more accessible through YouTube videos and Online Courses.

Therapy is this awesome process where two people sit down together and work through a challenge in a personalized, supportive environment of growth. And although these resources are education and not therapy, I’ve seen these videos make a positive impact on thousands of my viewers and students.

I love helping people change and I'm willing to be creative in how I help that happen. I take a solution-centered approach with an emphasis on learning skills to help people find love, purpose, and joy in life. In my spare time I enjoy exploring the world with my husband and daughters, spending time outdoors, photography, making stuff, and learning new things.
