Escaping Perfectionism with Bianca Hughes, LPC

Finding Help: Therapy, Recovery, & Community

Bianca Hughes, LPC, shares that the unrealistic desire to be perfect exists in all of us and is at the root of many mental health difficulties. We discuss how perfectionism shows up differently for men and women. We also talk about how the pandemic has affected mental health. Bianca credits the slowed down pace of life with creating an increased demand for therapy as people come face-to-face with their inner perfectionist and are seeking help as a result. In addition to her therapy practice, Bianca hosts the “Authentic Wednesday Podcast” in which she invites guests to take off their perfectionism mask to talk about their real stories.  Bianca’s website: https://www.biancakhughes.com/ Authentic Wednesday Podcast Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/authentic-wednesday-podcast/id1480969712 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/6PL2BjT9KoEWNmRQz53i8V For more info on Matt Shedd and the services he provides for therapists visit: https://mattshedd.com--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/finding-help/message

Hacking Perfectionism, Loneliness and the Impact of Social Media on Brain Circuits with Bianca Hughes

Shift with CJ

“Embrace your imperfections and authentically be you,” says Bianca In this episode of Shift with CJ, my guest is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia, Bianca Hughes. She specializes in perfectionism and helps people embrace their imperfections and authentically to be themselves. Her authenticity creates a safe, non-judgmental, and warm environment, which allows her patients to BE YOU without a mask.Bianca utilizes clinical interventions (CBT, Solution-focused, narrative, and psychodynamic) to empower clients to problem-solve effectively. I manage day-to-day financial, administrative, and marketing requirements for the private practice. In addition, to providing direction and support to 2 associate professional counselors. She provided therapeutic interventions to individuals experiencing stress management, relationship challenges, and trauma. Also, I created marketing strategies to generate awareness and develop referral sources for private practice.Her passion is to help people become all God has created them to be. Bianca believes we all have a unique purpose that is sometimes buried under layers of shame, anger, anxiety, regret, fear, failure, inadequacy, discouragement, hurt, and resentment, amongst other things. Her goal is to help you peel back the layers to discover the treasure within you, authentically be you, and live a purpose-driven life. Today, I have her on the show to learn some fantastic facts about perfectionism. During our podcasts, you will discover:Loneliness is a sense of emptiness- 26:11“How do you think we can collectively solve this problem of loneliness? “I asked Bianca“In 2020, many people needed help and therapy as it was a difficult year for most of us. Even now, the clinics are full of people because of the pandemic. People are depressed as they have nowhere to go in such a situation, and hence they feel lonely and seek help. Sense of loneliness was seen high in the population. People should understand they could be with people and still feel lonely, and it is a feeling of being alone that comes from inside, so the answer is not to be with people unnecessarily. Loneliness may decrease confidence, and the person may feel that they aren’t good enough. It's just a sense of emptiness in us; no external force affects loneliness, and people will have just to let go of that feeling”, she replied. Social Media and its Impacts-33:10“What do you think about social media and its impacts during the pandemic? “I asked her“It’s a love-hate relationship; social media has been beneficial during the pandemic with all sources and helplines available online. People could even conduct online parties while sitting at their homes and enjoy themselves through social media. All the funny videos help to reduce stress as well.On the other hand, it also makes you feel lonely when you see a picture of a family or a couple while you are alone. Therefore, people should use social media wisely and remember that this is a one-moment picture, and it is not fair to compare themselves with strangers. The lower the self-esteem, the lower you will feel on social media. Every weekend I delete my account and also advise that my patients and relax for two days without any interruptions”, Bianca replied.Find out more intriguing things. “It’s a beautiful gift to see my clients choosing courageous steps to set themselves free by being vulnerable to share their stories of shame and express their truth. As a result, my clients begin to accept themselves right where they are, despite their imperfections.”- Bianca Enjoy Listening!To know more about Bianca Hughes :Website : https://www.biancakhughes.com/

153 - Bianca Hughes - Embrace Your Imperfections and Authentically Be You

Conversations with a Wounded Healer

“Let's get this very clear: therapists are humans; humans are human. And, therefore, we experience the same things as our clients.” ~Bianca Hughes Perfectionism, professional pivots, and the privilege of creating space for healing. So many bases covered in this conversation with Bianca K. Hughes, LPC! Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the cultural exchange insights - Bianca’s a British ex-pat residing in Atlanta (shout out OTP and ITP!) - or the book recommendation...or the NARM chitchat.  If there’s a single overarching theme to this discussion, it’s sacred vulnerability. Bianca makes a case for living and practicing in the glory of our imperfections. As a first-gen Brit born to Caribbean parents, Bianca brings a multi-directional perspective to her Atlanta practice. Her style is less linear, outcome-driven. For her, healing is a circuitous journey she shares with her clients. She’s quick to let them know she’s not the ultimate oracle or guide.  There’s a truism about therapists specializing in the areas where they need the work or have experienced the most growth. Bianca’s focus on perfectionism - and women, in particular, who struggle with its weight - is no accident. “Going back to that privilege,” she says, “...I think that specializing in perfectionism because of my own stuff, and I'm continuing to do my own work, helps me a lot easier with the clients that I work with.”  Doing our work and sharing that knowledge is how therapists hold space for healing. Bianca is a lover of authenticity. She specializes in perfectionism, helping people embrace their imperfections and authentically be themselves. Bianca is a licensed professional counselor in Georgia, podcast host, speaker and authenticity coach.
