Founder, Florida Art Therapy Services
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.

“As a creative arts therapist, that is your niche. You don’t necessarily have to niche down into a specific population. There’s a lot of focus on this idea of “The riches are in the niches.” We hear that a lot. “You have to tailor your marketing.” […] You might find that you serve several different types of populations through your practice, and that, for me, is what I need. If I were working with the same type of individual all day, every day, I would get really bored. I wouldn’t feel challenged. I wouldn’t be able to do my best work and give of myself in a way where I’m really having maximum benefit.”
