Self-Help

Guided. Private. At Your Pace.

“I want to thank you for creating the assessment package that makes up Your Shopping Self-Portrait. You’ve taught me that shopping can be an unhealthy way of dealing with issues that have nothing to do with money or “stuff” and everything to do with who I am and how I live my life.” -L.L., Benicia, California

Feel Disciplined? Try on Your Own First

Our Self-Help Stopping Overshopping Program combines Dr. Benson’s book To Buy or Not to Buy: Why We Overshop and How to Stop and two Journals. It is a proven program that guides you through reading and exercises in digestible amounts to help you pace your journey. You build introspection, learning, and new behaviors along the way.   

If you try the Self-Help program and you feel you need more accountability or assistance to stop shopping, your money won’t be wasted. Our Private and Group Coaching programs use the same book and journals with the added expertise of a coach.
