I imagine you may be wondering how a trauma therapist can possibly mentor you in business!
Well, because I have had the experience of being personally stuck, which then impacted my business and I have seen it in other women. My counselling experience and education supports a deeper personal transformation which then flows into your business.
You can do all the training, work with business coaches, put strategy after strategy in place and you will still be stuck unless you find a way to resolve what needs attention within yourself. I know because I did it! I don't want to think of the amount of money I spent on online trainings for this and that. But....my business still kept doing what it was doing because I still kept doing what I always did.
The gold is in looking deeply into what within you is in your way and then making a commitment to heal it.
Running a business or leading a team requires you to be fully present to others. How can you do that if you are not fully present to yourself?
As a business owner, you are the business and whatever remains unresolved in you, your business also carries. For example: as team leaders/managers, if the relationships in your personal life are difficult, I imagine this is repeated or reflected in your business relationships. The way you are in your personal life will show up in your business.
We can't hide from our patterns of being. My childhood learning about money was that money = love/being enough. My father was not available emotionally and the meaning I made was that he showed his feelings by giving money. Imagine how that might show up in my business. How do I put a value on my worth? Imagine what happens if a clients says I can't afford it, that's too expensive.......What do you think that child self heard? Yes, that's right, I'm not worth what I ask. This process of course is going on subconsciously. It wasn't until I worked deeply with this that it became obvious where those feelings I didn't understand came from. This type of issue may feel like a money block and no matter what you do it doesn't seem to resolve itself.
Over the 10 plus years I've been in my own business, I have been on a journey of extensive study including a masters degree in Gestalt psychotherapy and Facilitator training in Family Constellations. It has been an amazingly insightful and healing process. Now I use this understanding and insight to help women just like you who are searching for the peace, joy, flow and balance in your life and business....and it' is possible....I promise!
