The Stopping Overshopping (TM) Private Coaching Program

The goal of our program is to:

  • Break the cycle that leads to compulsive buying
  • Transform from compulsive to controlled shopping
  • To teach skills, tools, and strategies to help you eliminate your compulsive buying behavior and develop the capacity to lead a richer life in the process.

Dr. Benson’s book, To Buy or Not to Buy: Why We Overshop and How to Stop is the basic structure of the individual work, while during each 1-hour session the program is tailored to your specific needs. Our work together approaches the problem from feeling, thinking, and behavioral levels. Coaching employs a variety of effective techniques to meet the goal of helping you to resist and eliminate self-defeating overshopping behavior. We will work to identify and replace it with interests, relationships, and competencies that enhance your life.

How It Works

We will use To Buy or Not to Buy: Why We Overshop and How to Stop and the companion Shopping Journals.  You can choose to curl up in a chair to think and write for your journal work, or access the work through a secure online platform to type it. Your choice.
