Licensed Professional Counselor
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.

“Hypnotherapy and somatic therapy are different ways of affecting our behavior that don’t rely on the pre-frontal cortex, which is where we, as talk therapists, tend to do most of our work. We are relying on, “My conversation with my client will help the client logically make sense of their behavior.” […] Logic, when it comes to behavior change, only takes you so far. It is important, but it’s a limited intervention without understanding how to also work with the unconscious back brain.”
