Overcoming Perfectionism Masterclass

Overcoming Perfectionism Masterclass

More Views

Many perfectionists may not actually identify as such. Yet they are likely to recognise the symptoms and side effects that often accompany these tendencies:

  • A harsh inner critic
  • Paralysing anxiety
  • Procrastination
  • A persistent inner sense of dread and / or guilt

It can seem like the pride of perfection outweighs the pain, but when we start to pay more attention the true cost of perfectionism reveals itself. We start to notice all the subtle compulsions that keep us locked of a perpetual state of striving - cut off from the ease and flow of the moment.

About the Workshop:

Join us for this masterclass on Mindfulness for Perfectionism with Dr. Pavel Somov, an internationally renowned clinical psychologist, speaker and author.

Based on his extensive work using mindfulness in his clinical practice as a psychologist, Dr. Somov has written numerous books to help people overcome common problems using mindfulness-based techniques and reflections.

His groundbreaking book, 'Present Perfect: Letting Go of Perfectionism & the Need To Control', offers a framework to explore the qualities and origins of perfectionism and shift the beliefs that perpetuate it.

Drawing on the tools from Present Perfect and his clinical innovations, Dr. Somov has condensed his approach into four key insights:

  • A fundamental rethinking of the meaning of perfection
  • A normalisation of our core motive
  • How letting go of old perceptions of ourselves can help us grow
  • An experience to shine light on our compulsively rigid ways of being

The masterclass will include a combination of taught and guided experiences.
