The Love Fix

May 6, 2022

Carla and Sherry share hilarious Zoom fails and the unexpected silver linings from working online over the last two years.  Then, they take a Love Fix question from a friend who thinks it’s time for her friend to get married.  What are the red flags in this question and in this situation, and is marriage as important as finding the right life partner? Then, they welcome Lauren Zoeller, CTA certified relationship coach, motivational speaker, and podcast host. She has achieved overwhelming success in helping high performing, female executives attract a dream relationship and life they crave. She is the creator of The Aligned Love Experience™, a cutting edge coaching program that teaches women how to attract love and Balanced Boss Academy™, a learning platform that teaches online coaches how to build and scale a business with heart. Lauren talks about how she incorporates ventral vagal work into her coaching, how trauma can affect everyone differently, and how to release toxic energy and sit with your biggest emotions.


What You’ll Hear In This Episode:

  • Lauren talks about somatic experiencing and how she uses it to coach her clients through trauma and the early childhood experiences that keep them stuck in toxic relationships. 
  • Do people who keep picking emotionally unavailable partners have a more anxious or avoidant attachment style? 
  • The importance of learning how to sit with the big emotions so that you can first have a healthy relationship with yourself. 
  • Why you need to stop fooling yourself- and others- into thinking that you’ve got it all together.  
  • Find out how to connect with Lauren, along with how to work with Sherry and Carla on overcoming codependency, dating, break-ups, healing from toxic relationships, and gaining confidence. 
  • Toxic people and narcissists are addicted to the manipulation that fills their self-worth cup. 
  • Two ways to calm yourself in the interactions leading up and on a first date. 
  • Mastering the ventral vagal state in your nervous system allows you to respond the way you really want to in any situation. 
  • There’s no one traumatic event that is more severe than another, and every brain responds to trauma in a different way. 
  • How to know if therapy, psychotherapy, or coaching is what you need now.
