“Working with Curie provided a safe, fun space to reflect on some of my unhelpful patterns and to explore ways to shift out of them. The sessions gave me a better understanding of my values in relation to work, and what depletes me versus motivates me. Curie also gave me practical suggestions about how to put boundaries in place and to manage perfectionism around work, which I was able to experiment with between sessions. This has been really helpful, both in managing current work challenges and also in thinking about future directions for my work.”
