EP9: Rape: the emotional implications and recovery tips
Rape has been trending in my country Nigeria for some time now. Hearing cases of people being raped across the country have been incredible. Unfortunately, the societal response of always blaming the victims isn't helpful as this is mainly taken advantage of by the rapists to continue in their quest to own the body of another human being forcefully, which is part of what rape is about. Rape is evil, and can have devastating effects on the victims. Most rape victims may suffer immediate reactions of flashbacks, nightmares and lots of cognitive distortions from the event. Others may have it worst while experiencing post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD, for years. These reactions can affect how they see themselves and the environment they live. Unfortunately, we rarely talk about this psychological aspects of rape on the victims here. It's important we start having these conversations. Reason, I've done this episode to add my voice to this awareness. You can send me e-mail of your rape survivor story at, connect with me on Instagram, @thekounsellor, or Twitter, @Dkounsellor.

EP7: Benefits of negative emotions
A lot of people have issues feeling certain emotions because we've termed them as negative. Because of this, much work is done to resist, deny or admit that we do experience these emotions. Unfortunately, the resistance does more harm in confirming their perceived "negativity." So we use that as a proof that they're actually bad emotions. What we fail to understand is that our labelling of what they are is affecting our reaction to them. In this episode, I tried my best to make us see the benefits of the supposedly "negative" emotions, and how we can maximize these benefits for our own successful evolution, and emotional wellness. #emotions #fear #sadness #anger #disgust #happinesshabits #emotionalintelligence #relationships #emotionalissues #joyiseki #thejoyisekishow #emotionalwellnesscoach #mentalhealth Please check my website for more blog posts to help your personal healing and development journey.

EP6: Creating a Healthy Boundary in our Relationships and daily living.
Once we're dealing with more than ourselves, there's a likelihood of conflicts due to differences in interpretation of what's being said, and also because of our individual uniqueness. Relationships therefore necessitate the need for boundary creation most times. Boundary becomes important as a way of communicating our needs and expectations. This can ensure our safety and emotional stability from some intruders who just enjoy being rude, harmful or just disrespectful to us, regardless of what we do right. By creating a boundary, we declare our sovereignty as an individual and own our right to what we choose to hear, see or tolerate around us. For someone who may have had turbulent relationships that had led to assaults and emotional abuse, boundary is one thing you want to cultivate. And boundary doesn't have to be huge. It's in the little responses, and actions we take daily towards whatever is violating our peace, no matter how small it might seem. #boundary #relationships #healing #emotionalwellness #mentalwellbeing #assertiveness #healthyspace #thejoyisekishow

EP5: What to do when life happens to you.
Life happens to almost all of us. While we plan our days, and wish for the best, some things happen that we may not fully understand. For most people that I've met, their problem lies with the difficulty in believing that certain "unpleasant" events can happen to them too. They find it hard to believe because they've done life right enough. Truth is, no matter how perfect you are, shit happens. And if you do not know how to manage this shit, it could lead to a mental breakdown on your part. I've shared here practical things I've particularly mastered to deal with unfortunate circumstances. These tips have been proven helpful with my clients, myself, and others I've shared it with. I hope you find them helpful for your use too. #whenlifehappens #happinesshabits #nigerianpodcast #emotionalwellnesscoach #mentalwellbeing #acceptance #balance #lifehacks #gratitudehabits

EP4: How to use faith to cope better during hard times.
Faith is helpful for our emotional wellbeing because of how it can help us cope with the stress that comes with crisis in difficult times.

In this episode, I shared what faith is, and what it's not, its benefits to our mental wellbeing, and how we can take advantage of the positive expectation of faith to help us cope well during the most challenging period of our lives.

EP3: Experiencing Gratitude in Challenging Times.
During difficult moments of our lives, we can be drained emotionally because we are feeling bad about what had happened. We'll need to boost our state of being to a more elevated emotional state like gratitude, in order to regain the inner strength to fight the battle we may be facing. In this episode, I shared on some practical ways to influence our state of being so that we can be in a better frame of mind to experience gratitude inspite of the challenges. This way, our emotional wellbeing is not crushed by the challenges #gratitude #mentalwellbeing #emotionalwellness #emotionalwellnesswithjoyiseki #joyiseki #happiness #resilience

Crisis period isn't all about agony and trouble. At times, it offers us the best opportunity to outgrow the labels and persona we've been assumed as, and evolve into our real self. This happens as we begin to commune with ourselves in the Isolation, and to bear witness with our true self from asking questions higher than we've ever done. We can maximize the most difficult moments of our life to transform our lives. #awakening #whattododuringthechallengingtimes #happinesshabits #resilience #challengingtimes #lifehacks #hopefulness
