#286 Dr Soph: Self-Sabotage & Seeking Safety

Welcome back to Ctrl Alt Delete! Today's guest is clinical psychologist Dr Soph where we discuss the topic of self-sabotage and how it can be a useful thing that tells us about ourselves and what we want.


My new book SABOTAGE is out TODAY and to celebrate I am publishing this conversation with the brilliant Dr Soph about the topic and about her career as a therapist. I recently discovered Dr Soph and her brilliant Instagram presence and am so glad I have. She also contributed some wise nuggets to SABOTAGE which I am very grateful for! 


Dr Soph is registered Clinical Psychologist with 8 years experience. She offers one-on-one online therapy and coaching to support her clients in ways that fit around their lifestyle - and we talk all about how she helps people overcome anxiety and low self-esteem.


In this conversation we talk about how we don't love the word self-sabotage but it is a useful phrase to sum up why we do what we do, how to spot our behaviours and the tools we can have in our back pocket to help us get out of own way. Self-sabotage can actually be useful and help us re-route, or show us what we really want, or show us the conflicts in our life. It's us "seeking safety" basically.


Hope you enjoy this conversation!
