Boundaries.Me is your best option for mental health coaching by providing you with videos and thinking tools created by New York Times best-selling author and clinical psychologist Dr. Henry Cloud. You will learn how to apply the research-backed techniques that have helped thousands heal and thrive by following a personalized learning path, connecting with Dr. Cloud daily and joining a private support community.
Boundaries.me is a subscription video portal where you pay a monthly amount of $9.00/month, which provides you access to all of Dr. Cloud's videos. Many of the videos have actionable activities to help with the learning. There are also structured learning paths to help with key areas of boundaries.
Can you Relate?
Do you ever feel unsure where you end and your partner begins? Or do you find yourself walking on eggshells or managing your words or actions because you don’t want to “hurt your partner's feelings?” Or maybe you feel suffocated by your partner’s persistent pressure to do what they want, and you don’t know how to say no.
Boundaries.me aligns with the Core area of focus of the Evimero Couples Framework, specifically focusing on the category of Identity/Self-Esteem. It will help you define healthy boundaries, which create a healthier and more fulfilling relationship.
Tools for Growth
The Boundaries.me portal is cholk-full of tools to help you grow in your understanding and application of healthy boundaries. We’ve provided an overview of each type of tool and ideas for application within your relationship.
All courses in the portal align with one of the following content areas: Emotions & Feelings, Faith, Performance, Personal Growth, and Relationships. Each course is packed with content, providing the equivalent of what you may find in 8-10 personal growth books. Courses contain a series of videos with instruction on the course topic, and all videos are from Dr. Cloud or other field experts. Many courses include downloadable workbooks, supplementary PDF’s, and assessments and reflection questions, all designed to foster your engagement in the learning process.
The portal combines multiple courses on one topic into “learning paths.” These learning paths create the opportunity for users to dig deeply into a specific content area for focused growth.
The One Thing: Daily Coaching Videos
These are shorter, daily videos created by Dr. Cloud designed to reinforce the course concepts. Each video is accompanied by a poll to help you grasp the concept of the video, and a user forum so you can share comments, ask questions, and engage in conversations related to the video topic with other boundaries.me community members.
Podcasts, Articles, Paid Workshops and Premium Subscription Community
As you can probably tell, there is tremendous breadth and depth to the offerings in this portal. These content areas are not part of this review, but we wanted to list them here so you know all that is available for you in the portal.
There are three methods for applying the content in the portal that stand out. First, when you first join the boundaries.me portal you are presented with a short set of questions to determine what you hope to get out of your time in the portal. The portal contains a tremendous amount of content, so this assessment helps you focus on the content areas and/or resources that will be most valuable for you.
Second, most of the courses have downloadable workbooks and supplementary PDF’s to encourage you to reflect on what you learn in the course videos. We recommend adding these reflections to your journal time, as this gives you the space to process what you are learning about yourself and your relationships. Then, take your reflections to your partner and share. Use the contents of this portal as an opportunity to heal your core, and to support your partner in healing theirs. As you work to heal your core, you will start to show up in healthier ways in your relationship. And as you work through this process together, you increase your capacity for deep, lasting, intimate, connection with your partner.
Finally is a user forum within the portal. This forum is organized by topic and gives members a place to connect, share recommendations for additional resources, and share ways they are applying what they have learned about that specific topic. At Evimero Couples we love community, so we are big proponents of this aspect of the portal.
