The mental barrier is the hardest to overcome. Have you tried putting on thick socks and sliding around your wood floor? Maybe that will help you with the motion. Just push and slide one way, then the next, back and forth

Then next time you are on the ice hold onto the boards and stay stationary and push one leg out, so you can get the feel of peeling ice, and using your inside edge.

Then try pushing off and sliding on one foot, just like you did at home
