Dr. Diana Hill
Licensed Clinical Psychologist and High Performance Coach
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.

“It’s not that we need to bubble-wrap ourselves so that we don’t feel the stress and anxiety, but it’s actually about how we allow ourselves to be flexible within the pain of life so that we respond in ways that matter to us and that are meaningful to us. And right now is the perfect opportunity. If we’re not psychologically flexible right now, we’ve got nothing. It’s the key to resilience.”
