Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.

How to Stop Shoulding on Yourself on The Cravings Whisperer with Alexandra Jamieson

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

You know what I’ve realized recently? Peace, love, and understanding seems in short supply these days. Even when it comes to ourselves!

So this week, I want to get you to stop thinking about what you “should” be doing, and what you are doing. I was lucky enough to do some coaching with Rachael for this week’s episode. Rachael has this same problem: her inner critic is constantly “shoulding” all over her!

Here’s a taste of what it’s like when I coach one on one. I have some spots available, so head over to this page on my website to apply. I want to talk about your deepest desires and challenges and help you move forward.

Don’t forget, I also have a free, private Facebook group! Anyone can join and share their struggles or support, and I’m on there all the time talking with folks.

Alright Crave Bears – get ready for a tough but productive episode!
