Workshops + Classes
Welcome to Self Esteem Studio, where I, Sherry Ellingson, offer classes and workshops in group settings to elevate self awareness and strengthen your connection to your true self.
Workshops and Classes are done in a group environment. They are offered both in private and on -line: i.e. offices, gatherings, Colleges/Universities, company retreats and more.
Self -Esteem Exploration
Self-esteem is the root of all beliefs, actions, relationships and communication. How we care for ourselves and treat others is rooted in how we feel about ourselves. It can be family or cultural conditioning and or past trauma.
Do you feel that you end up with similar situations and people in your life? The friends, painters and work may be different but the same scenario shows up for you. Gaining self-esteem and up leveling the healthiness of it will allow you to step away from the same draining situations.
By strengthening you can begin to make choices that are more aligned with who you truly are. This is a class to explore self-esteem and take actionable steps towards living the life you have imagined.
In the 4 weeks I will teach you how to tap in, and have topics to explore.
In between classes there will be work, and journaling.
I will lead you and teach you self-care, communication enhancement, attachment style and how it can work for you, and more.
This class is great for those who want to see new results.
