Saying Farewell to Perfectionism with Megan Bruneau

Read more

Humans are linear thinkers—meaning we think that one action leads directly to the next and so on.  But we forget that while we're trying to progress, our subconscious patterning pulls us back and things from our past can slow us down, preventing us from moving forward at all. And it’s happening TO US for a reason—your past is asking to be healed. Today, host Sarah Anne sits down and chats with one of her best friends, health therapist Megan Bruneau, to discuss how our growth isn’t linear—and when we don’t give ourselves a sacred pause to resolve our past hurts, we end up in a cycle of swimming upstream without awareness that we're even in the river. In this powerful episode, Megan shares why letting go of your past sets you free, and how to let go of the perfectionism that often drives us, along with the shame and guilt that holds us back from stepping into our greatest selves.

#97: Changing Our Relationship with Discomfort with Megan Bruneau, M.A. RCC

Read more

We want Megan Bruneau to be our new therapist — or at least our friend who we invite out for drinks and free advice. She’s a therapist, executive coach, and speaker who takes a no-bullshit approach to coaching. We talk a lot about sitting in discomfort and how to navigate it, as well as the dangers of using “spiritual bypassing” to avoid stress. Right now is a time of incredible discomfort for all of us, and we’re all trying to navigate it as best we can by staying informed and having conversations — like this one.

Megan talks about...

  • Changing our relationship with discomfort
  • Weighing the risks of involvement or silence
  • The danger of forced positivity
  • The importance of feeling our feelings
  • Spiritual Bypassing--this concept blew our minds-- and how it can be damaging
  • Being compassionate to yourself

Episode #132: How to recover from disordered eating + tips on overcoming guilt, shame, and perfectionism with therapist Megan Bruneau

Read more
We have all experienced shame before: the feeling that we are not enough, or that we do not live up to certain standards or ideals. But what happens when this shame spirals out of control? What happens when it overtakes our life, and affects the way we think and behave?
In this week’s podcast I speak with Megan Bruneau, a psychologist and registered counselor who specializes in crisis support, compassion-based therapy and executive coaching, about the problem of shame, learning how to love yourself despite your imperfections, how to help someone with an eating disorder, the danger of medicalizing normal human emotions and why positive affirmations often fail. 
Megan has been featured on national television programs like Good Morning America and The T.D. Jakes Show) and is a regular contributor to Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen and Forbes. Using both her personal and professional experience, her goal is to teach people to face and learn to live with their imperfections and be kinder to themselves. As Megan says, we are all a journey, and we are all worthy of being loved, and there is room for both joy and sorrow in life. You don’t have to wait till you feel happy or look a certain way or have a particular life or succeed at something to feel like you belong and that you matter, because you are worthy, right here, right now.

I've been following the incredible Megan Bruneau on Instagram for some time now, and am absolutely delighted to introduce you to her on the podcast today! 

Quoted by Deepak Chopra as the “Millennials’ therapist,” Megan’s no-bullshit, relatable voice has garnered over 30m views and landed appearanceson The T.D. Jakes Show, Good Morning Americaand New York 1 Morning News. Transparent about her own mental health, eating disorder history, frequent heartaches and uncertain entrepreneurial life in New York City, Megan’s vulnerable and humorous writing-style has inspired dozens of viral articles– making her a Huffington Post– homepage regular, MindBodyGreen, and Forbesfavorite.

Megan has a master of arts in counseling psychology and a bachelor of arts in psychology and social work.

Megan and I covered a LOT in this podcast, and she even asked me to open up a little bit about the reasons behind ending my 9-year long term relationship.  We discussed:

  • The breadcrumbs of hope: those reinforcement hits we get when we’re hanging on to a relationship that isn’t serving us, but keeps roping us back in for more
  • Attachment issues, the moments of validation that we search for, and this entire concept of the pain/time continuum that can spike our pain when we think about walking away to the point that it keeps us stuck
  • The cost of compassion and what can happen when we have an overabundance of compassion
  • Loneliness, manipulation, guilt, shame and self-sabotage
  • Compromise vs. boundaries
  • This concept we seem to have that creativity has to come from pain

This entire episode was incredibly special from start to finish, please make sure to connect with Megan and show her some love for coming on!
