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 hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.

“The way that I help clients reclaim and reframe their stories is to understand that the challenges they face are an important part of their story because it’s pushing them to stretch and grow beyond their comfort zone. A lot of times, there’s an implicit expectation that life is supposed to be easy and they’re supposed to be happy. So if you really believe that life is supposed to be easy, then when things happen to you — which they always do, because that’s life — then you could easily feel like there’s something wrong with you or you’re a victim. “
