Coaching to overcome pleasing others syndrome


Course description:

As a clinical psychologist, I help many unhappy people struggling with this addiction to please others. This is often not seen as a problem because it helps a person get approval and validation from others and makes them feel recognized as helpful, and kind. However, the constant desire to please others can lead to a harmful pattern of self-sacrifice or self-neglect.

This course is a program to help you overcome low self-worth and self-esteem generated by people pleasing syndrome.

The course is also dedicated to coaches that helps clients with improving their self-esteem. You will learn interventions that you can use to help your clients on their road to performance improvement related to lack of focus due to poor self-esteem.


In this course you will learn:


· what is people pleasing syndrome related to

· what are the causes and factors that maintain people pleasing

· how to recognize people-pleaser traits and

· Different techniques to overcome pleasing others

The course is dedicated to anyone who recognize that trying to win approval is draining you of energy and you are pursuing the happiness of others at the expense of your own emotional well-being. Consequently, you feel a weak self-esteem, anger and frustration, anxiety and stress, depleted willpower, lack of authenticity and resentful relationships.


The need to please others is related to:


· Masochistic Personality type, which also corresponds with Dependent Personality disorder.

· Anxiety or depression

· Avoidant personality disorder

· Borderline personality disorder

· Approval addiction



There are a number of factors that maintain the people pleasing syndrome, including:

· Past experiences: people who have experienced abuse, painful, difficult, or traumatic experiences for example, may try to please others and be as agreeable as possible to avoid triggering abusive behavior in others.

· Poor self-esteem: Sometimes people will please others because they do not value their own desires and needs, and they may feel that doing things for others will obtain approval and acceptance.

· Because they lack self-confidence, people-pleasers have a need for external validation

· Insecurity: people might try to please others because they worry that other people will not like them if they do not make others happy.

· Perfectionism: they might want everything to be “just so they imagine perfection” including how other people think and feel.


People often do nice things for others for various reasons related to feel good about self, to help or to earn favors. That is fine, but if you’re putting always others first and you are constantly focused on pleasing others, you are afraid that you’ll be disliked or rejected if you say “no,” there’s a strong chance that you suffer people-pleasing syndrome and that will be a blocker in living a fulfilling life.
