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.
Today’s special guest is Carole Cullen, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and the owner of My Therapist in Wake Forest, NC.

“Therapists blame themselves sometimes and say, “It’s my fault they’re not making that progress. I’m not doing what I need to be doing. If I were a good therapist, they’d be doing better.” There’s a lot of myths about that and a lot of beliefs about, “We’re just not doing it right.” And that’s not true. But we do have those thoughts. For me, what I’ve done more recently, is have some supervision, some peer consultation and just some time with my colleagues to share how I’m feeling and get that reinforcement and feedback, and maybe some strategies on how to tackle some of these issues from a different perspective so I can help my clients to move in a more positive direction. […] Getting that peer consult is so important.”
