Owner, Within Holistic Counseling
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 Celeste Ballard. She is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and the owner of Within Holistic Counseling, with an office in the Chicago area and another Knoxville, Tennessee.

“The best parts are those moments when somebody truly gets in touch with their feelings and is able to actually ride them out. When somebody really learns to trust themselves and go through that pain cycle and sadness. Because right along with that is this openness and comfort that comes. When they break through that point, it’s really relaxing because it’s like they solved a little bit of a mystery and now they just need to keep practicing that.”
