Imagine if you had the courage to do
all the things you really want to.
Explore the world. Write the book. Change careers.
Turn your daydream into your daily life. Fall in love with yourself.
Can you imagine what your life would look like?
What your life would feel like?
It'd look and feel pretty damn amazing.
"Rebecca Ray's work has had a profound impact on my life. It has helped me to reclaim and honour my feelings, and most of all, find the courage to be myself and love myself. There is something about Rebecca's gentle voice that reaches me. There is something about her patience and her perseverance that enlightens and strengthens my own. When it comes down to it, Rebecca is a champion of women's voices -- all our voices. Her work makes me feel better about myself, about life, and about the possibilities life holds for me. Her wisdom has become a part of the framework of my own values and is a vital part of my own self-healing work."

But I get it: It's easier said than done, right?
Because even though you dream of a life filled with people, places, events
and moments that light you up, there's something holding you back.
... Oh hey, fear. I've been waiting for you.
Come on in. Pull up a seat. We've got a lot to talk about.
Your brain is whispering to you, lovely one.
Telling you that no matter how badly you want something it’s never going to happen.
And there are a whole bunch of reasons why.
You can’t do it. You’re not good enough. It’s too late to try.
But you know what all of that is really code for?
Here’s the deal:
As humans, we’re biologically programmed to avoid accidentally cutting our time here short.
Like not hula-hooping into the path of a stampede of buffalos.
And choosing to say “no” to a cheeky nine holes of golf in the middle of an electrical storm.
Pretty sensible, really.
But somewhere between sabretooth tigers becoming extinct and UberEats keeping me alive,
our lizard brains (the ancient part of our brains) got really confused and went all Terminator on modern life.
Trying something new? Beep beep beep – that’s a threat!
Saying ‘yes’ to a great opportunity? Beep beep beep – that’s a threat!
Making a change? Beep beep beep – that’s a threat!
Showing up on social media for your business? Beep beep beep – that’s a threat!
And because your brain is meant to keep you safe, it’s sending you all sorts of, “DANGER, DANGER!” signals, making sure you feel as anxious, uncomfortable and fearful as possible.
Because staying in your
cave home, doing the same things you’ve successfully done for days, weeks and years before?
It’s a proven way to stay safe.
Doing something new?
FLASHING. RED. ALERT.
I love love love Dr Rebecca Ray. I first discovered her in one of my late night google scrolls (don't we ALL do this???) looking for something, anything, to lift my spirits up and to find answers in the midst of one of my many depressive episodes.I read her words and they just resonated with me instantly.That was a couple of years ago now and her words are resonating with me still. She teaches me that it is absolutely okay to listen to my inner voice and to honour it without judgement. To rest when I need to. To go when I feel the energy to. But always to love myself and those around me. I cannot wait to meet her and hug her one day. She has enhanced my life in so many ways. She is real. She totally gets it. I am so very glad to have found her. You will be glad too!

But that brave, inspired life? It’s waiting for you.
On the other side of fear.
It’s not about resenting fear. And it’s definitely not about never feeling fear.
(That’s not a thing. Fear is here to stay, I’m afraid. Ha. Pun unintended.)
Instead, it’s about understanding exactly how to navigate change – and pursue your dreams – with courage.
Cue the slick segue into the adventure you’ve been waiting for.
Transforming Fear into Freedom
A digital journey for humans ready for their brave, inspired life
Psychologist-created, human-tested and woman-approved, Radical Courage is a self-paced e-course designed to guide you in navigating change and taking real, tangible action towards achieving your Big Brave Thing.
Everyone has a Big Brave Thing: That one thing that you’re longing to do.
It might be:
* Buying a kombi van and road-tripping around Australia for a year.
* Leaving your day job and opening your own art studio.
* Showing up in the world as your authentic self.
* Singing in front of a crowd of people for the first time.
* Leaving a toxic relationship and beginning your new life.
* Learning how to live again when somebody close to you has passed away.
But we’re all waiting.
Waiting until we’re ready. Waiting until we’re perfectly healed/have a totally blank calendar/the stars align just so/the dog learns to stop chewing your sneakers/your lover can pack their own lunches.
Because one thing that fear is awesome at? Making us feel like we’re not ready.
But now is all we have, lovely one.
And there is no such thing as ready.
This course is closed for enrollment.

MEET YOUR COURAGEOUS COMPANION
Hi, lovely one. I’m Beck.
Clinical psychologist with a heart for unfolding journeys and a deep respect for the universe. Author of two published self-help books and another on the way. Mother of one incredible little boy (and one gangly Weimaraner). Wife of the coolest woman in the world. And a human, just like you.
I spend 20% of my day retrieving my toddler, Bennett, from his attempts at breaking into the box of dog food we keep in the laundry cupboard. (He’s not yet succeeded but it’s only a matter of time, right?) I procrastinate more than I should. I exercise less than I should. I’ve sworn off the word ‘should’ more times than I can count. I’m ridiculously proud of my ride-on lawn-mowing skills.
I am the devoted owner of a pig called Wilbur (okay, he’s not mine, he lives next door, but he comes running when I take scraps to him, so in my heart we belong to each other).
I walk a fine line between showing up for my people on Instagram and lowering my hours on the weekly screen time report. I worry and I get hungry and I get angry and I get hangry and I have to apologise to my wife for the things I say during those moments.
Which is all to say …
I’m practising, too.
I know your pain, I know your struggles. And I get you.
We fit because we get each other.
But that doesn’t mean either of us should be floundering around in the dark with our fear.
As a psychologist, I’ve counselled hundreds of women through periods of transition and deep, emotional upheaval.
Through these experiences I’ve identified the seven unique elements that, once focused on, reprogram our lizard brain and transform fear into freedom. It’s one-part psychology, one-part self-help and all-parts the gentle, loving guidance you need right now.
Today, I’m here to help you spark change and take real action steps towards achieving your Big Brave Things.
Even when you’re scared.
Because being scared? Totally okay.
Courage only shows up when fear is present.
It’s a duo act.
But that doesn’t mean fear’s gotta be riding shotgun.
Let’s – lovingly – shove fear out of the captain’s chair.
It’s time for courage to slide in and take the wheel
Is Radical Courage the right path for you (right now)?
Two of my core values are honesty and transparency and in the service of these values, I want to get real with you about whether Radical Courage is the right adventure for you right now.
You see, you’re probably not going to enjoy the program if you’re looking for a quick fix to your discomfort or a fast track to doing your Big Brave Thing (without doing the work you know you have to do to get there).
The tools in this program are incredibly effective. They will give you an avenue to get unstuck and open up possibilities you may not even be able to imagine right now when it comes to being brave and creating the life you desire …
But only if you’re willing to put time and effort into being honest with yourself, diving deeply into the exercises, and practising the skills you’ll learn.
I have intentionally created Radical Courage in a simple, accessible format because I know that many of you have lots of commitments with kidlets, work, and all the other ways you’re out making a difference in your families, communities, and the world at large.
But this program needs your commitment and willingness, too, if you truly want to transform your life.
You might need a dose of Radical Courage if:
> You dream of a bigger, braver life for yourself … but don’t know how to get there.
> You want to live life expansively and feel all the feelings … ‘cept, well, can there be less anxiety and depression, please?
> There are all sorts of challenges going down in your life right now and you want the support, guidance and education to navigate change with courage and love.
> You’re scared of change … but you don’t want to waste your life existing and not living.
> You struggle with negative thinking, self-worth and shame and want to find a way to heal your hurts and finally feel good enough to pursue your dreams.
> You’re feeling Winnie-the-Pooh-in-a-honey-pot stuck and need a Piglet with a Psych degree to help you get unstuck.
> You worry about people judging you for your decisions and want to find a way to live with purpose and passion.
But … Radical Courage is probably not for you right now if:
> You feel significantly depressed or anxious, or you’re struggling with other symptoms of psychological distress that regularly affect your day-to-day functioning.The contents of this program is appropriate as an addition to treatment from your doctors and mental health professionals, but this course is not designed as a replacement for treatment of acute psychological distress.
> You are not willing to take responsibility for doing the work on yourself to find your way to, and stay on, your brave path.
> You are not willing to be honest with yourself about the life you really want. Please don’t waste your money if you’re not ready for what courage can bring to your life in the most beautiful of ways.
> You are satisfied with your life and not looking for any kind of transformation or personal growth. You’ll quickly get tired of me asking what brave looks like for you, I promise!
You might not be ready. But you can be brave. And the universe listens to brave.
