Presented by Dr. Tyne Ori
I am a trained counseling psychologist with 10 years of therapy practice experience. I have observed the effects of narcissistic behaviors on individuals and their relationships, professionally (and personally!).
One thing I learned about these relationships is “The narc never gets enough of making you small.” I am providing this workshop for women who have had enough and are ready to take control of their peace of mind.
Are you struggling in relationships with narcissistic people?
Do you want to protect your peace, feel emotionally empowered and not at the whim of your relationships?
I am offering a 4-session workshop series on managing narcissistic relationships. In this course, you will be in the safe space of a community of women who are looking to overcome the same challenges as you. And, you will…
Learn how to identify narcissistic traits in others
Assess the ways your personality style contributes to one-sided relationship dynamics
Be guided to develop personal boundaries in areas of time, communication, access, relationship dynamics, and physical closeness
I get it!!
Oftentimes, women dealing with narcissistic or one-sided relationships feel unheard, disregarded, disrespected, and violated.
Whether this is a romantic relationship, family, friendship, work…we all have meaningful relationships that we want to maintain but tension in the dynamic can cause us undue distress.
These are people we love, but we don’t always love having to interact with them. Because sometimes that looks like sacrificing our own happiness — when the interaction inevitably turns sour.
Or, you may be managing a relationship with a supervisor who just won’t let up and you worry that if you stand up for yourself, your paycheck will suffer.
You know that you need to find a better way to manage these conversations and emotional fallout, because this repeated frustration simply can’t go on.
The emotional fallout can lead to long-term mental health complications like depression and anxiety, feeling depressed, choosing to blame yourself, and overthinking your past interactions.
Here’s Why You May Be Feeling Stuck…
You’re used to pouring into others more than you pour into yourself…
You haven’t learned how to draw the line between what belongs to you and what belongs to someone else
You haven’t received the tools to know how to say no, how to enforce your boundaries, and/or how to manage your emotions in the midst of hard conversations
You self-isolated or your experiences in your relationships make you feel alone but it doesn’t have to be that way!
What if I told you that you are allowing others to make you feel this way by giving them too much space in your life… And, that I can help you be more thoughtful about reducing the space and the hold that they have on you!
Let’s Work Together to Make a Shift...
You’re feeling helpless, hurt, frustrated, powerless, and at the will of other people. That is why I created the Put the Narc in a Box Workshop series, to help you learn to shift your mindset, actions, and habits so you can feel at peace with how you manage your difficult, but meaningful relationships.
Dr. Ori's Personal Story
This offering is from the heart. I am a trained counseling psychologist with a decade of therapy practice experience. I have observed the effects of narcissistic behaviors on individuals and their relationships from both sides, counseling those suffering from these relationships and those imposing their self-centered desires on others. Yet, I’d argue that my expertise on this topic has come from my personal life experience.
I’ve weathered the storms of self-hate and blaming myself for the state of my relationships where I was actually being taken advantage of. My kindness, my willingness to adjust, my desire to make others feel comfortable were all exploited at my expense.
One thing I learned in these relationships is “The narc never gets enough of making you small.” In every one of these relationships, familial, friendships, or romantic, I got tired, started believing myself, decided to stop betraying myself and stand up for me.
I did this using my knowledge of psychology and by creating boundaries based on the difficult emotions that would present when I was in crisis. Now, I’ve created a process to help other women struggling with similar experiences.
I invite you to join me on this journey if you are ready to finally put yourself first ….Because, you’ve had enough and you know it’s time for a major change.
Circa 2017: I only wished I was as self-confident, able to ask for what I want in relationships, and know that whether the person stayed or not, I was still worthy!
Here’s what you’ll gain
This workshop will be part education, part co-working session. You will leave the course having learned how to:
Create tangible boundaries for yourself
Better govern your relationships in a more peaceful way
Feel more relieved from the demands of others
The course is a 4-session series of LIVE 75-minute workshops that will provide mental health education about the ways that narcissism presents in society and relationships.You will be given the mental and emotional tools to protect your peace.
Class 1: We will talk through Dr. Ori’s philosophy on narcissism (link to video). You will identify which relationships you want to focus on during our time and the core conflicts that exist in those relationships.
Class 2: We will examine the variety of ways that narcissism presents as a personality diagnosis, as a feature of other psychiatric diagnoses (e.g., Bipolar disorder, depression), and/or as a feature of American culture like the media’s focus on beauty and materialism.
Class 3: We will discuss the character traits that narcissists are attracted to codependents, empaths, depressed, familiarity with narc in childhood development (parents, family members), dysfunctional coping (prove the narcissist to others and self, trying to win, CPTSD) and functional coping (boundaries, restore ability to love, attach and be vulnerable, be honest with self).
Class 4: The final class will be all about setting boundaries. It will be a working session where participants will begin to define their personal no-gos and the consequences that they will set up to protect themselves in the case that the people you are in relationships with don’t make the choice to respect your desires for how you want to be treated.
