Founder, Resolute 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.

“Burnout is a real issue you can face as a counselor. There could be a variety of reasons why, but to me, I still have that excitement for a first session. When someone is coming in for an intake, I have no idea what the issue is going to be because I don’t keep myself zeroed in [on just one niche]. If I were just doing one thing, I would already kind of know what I was going to face, or if I were only dealing with people who were mandated to come. It would be a lot harder for me personally. I really enjoy the variety of it.”
