Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

October 25, 2016

Guest Speaker: Ms. Kristin Woodling

Conquering Uncertainty with Confidence

Anxiety is the number one mental health issue for American Women.  The uncertainty faced by women in business can ignite this issue, even in the most experienced professionals.  Our personality, genetics, past experiences, and current circumstances are factors that influence the degree of anxiety we experience when faced with uncertainty.

Anxiety is a natural and important emotion, which allows us to predict and respond to possible danger.  It becomes a problem when we become hyper focused on factors we lack control over to the point we lose awareness of what we do have control over.  This frame of thinking makes life feel very unpredictable and clouds our cognitive abilities. 

Please join us on Tuesday, October 25 as Ms. Woodling demonstrates conquering uncertainty with the following four strategies:

1.       Dig deeper beyond the presenting anxiety and notice what really feels uncertain.

2.       Gain control over your physical symptoms of stress.

3.       Establish a realistic “To Do” list.

4.       Learn to have confidence in your ability to cope or resolve problems as they present themselves, letting go of the need to obsess over predicting possible negative outcomes.

When we can be relaxed despite evolving events in our personal and professional lives, we increase our productivity, strengthen our leadership and most importantly have the ability to enjoy the many gifts in our world.

Kristin Woodling is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Marriage and Family Therapist.  She attained a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from the University of Florida and a Masters of Art in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Central Florida.   As the Owner of Pamper Your Mind, LLC located in Indian Harbour Beach, she and her highly skilled colleagues are devoted to providing a confidential and elite therapeutic experience to professional women seeking healing, clarity, and a balanced lifestyle for optimal health. 

Ms. Woodling has over 10 years of experience and is known for her ability to help clients alter toxic thoughts, cleanse adverse emotions, pursue healthy responses to stress, and understand the connection between physical and emotional well-being.   Additionally, Ms. Woodling promotes strong mental health services in her community as the President of the Space Coast Mental Health Counselors Association, and teaches graduate level courses at Webster University.  She is a graduate of the 360 Ignite program offered by F.I.T. WeVenture and now enjoys volunteering as a mentor to help other professionals excel personally and professionally.
