The Authentic Self Process

The Authentic Self Process is an extraordinary powerful 3 step system to release the masks you wear and the stories you have created about your past experiences and relationships – so you can bring ALL of who you are to work and life.

What Is Your Authentic Self?

Being your Authentic Self is to know who you really are and to express yourself fully in any given moment.

To be authentic and BE your authentic self is to bring ALL of who you are to work and life.

  • Censoring

The Authentic Self 3 Step Process

Gina created the Authentic Self Process in 2004 when she was teaching adult ex-offenders.

There are 3 steps to the Authentic Self Process: Raise, Release and Reconnect.

Step 1 - Raise

The Authentic Self Process begins by raising your awareness of the things that hold you back: the masks you wear, the labels you carry, the layers you’ve built up over yourself over the years, the conditioning you have from childhood, other people’s expectations of you, the expectations you have of yourself and the stories you tell yourself and others.

Step 2. Release

The second step is to explore and release the unexamined thoughts and stories you have created around past experiences and expectations. Through The Soul Work™, a series of powerful questions, you strip away the power and hold those thoughts have in ALL areas of your life.

Step 3. Reconnect

The final step is to reconnect to who you really are, your Authentic Self. This is where you integrate Gina's practical everyday strategies into your life. Each of these strategies support you to be your Authentic Self and strengthen your relationships with your colleagues, team and loved ones at home. They are designed to ground and centre you, to slow you down and hold your attention in the present moment, as well as manifest the things you want in your life.
