Starting your own business as a healer is a journey in itself, but how can we use our own experiences of pain and trauma in our lives to help others? How do we deal our own self-criticism and judgement? How do we deal with people online judging and trolling us? This week Kristen is with us with some very eye-opening experiences in her journey into becoming a business coach that may surprise you!

Kristen and Gabby dive into the nuance of what it means to put yourself out there on social media, how to be vulnerable, share you experience and emotions in order to serve people while also dealing with criticism that may or may not be out of good intentions, and how to set boundaries with the trolls. Kristen talks about her experience of being “Doxxed” (which is basically like an army of trolls going all out to make your life miserable) and how she recovered from this and came back stronger than ever.

“Be patient because you are going to go through so much stuff within yourself, especially as you start sharing your own journey and your own emotions and you start getting vulnerable. Just be patient with yourself and have compassion, because the more you do that, the easier it is to work through everything”

  • [2:54] Introduction to Kristen, a bold rainbow-haired business coach seeking to break the “Pinterest-perfect” mold around entrepreneurship. She helps women to transmute their pain into their messaging
  • [5:10] Kristen talks about how her own pain has translated to how she works with her clients
  • [10:28] Kristen talks about the thing that has helped her transcend her pain and step into her purpose and start solely working for herself

  • [16:32] Kristen talks about how she had to completely separate from all social media for a good amount of time, and why she finally decided to come back
  • [19:54] How to work through the discomfort of negative feedback on social media

    The Secret Suffering of Therapists and Clinicians with Rachel Kelly

    43:37

    The difference between the current paradigm of practicing as a Clinical Therapist in our conventional, outdated, and toxic system is ruled by politics and bureaucracy.  Rachel Kelly has transformed her life as well as up-leveled her impact she can have on clients by taking her method of helping those in need into her own hands. In this episode from a recent Instagram Live, Rachel and Gabby both share their own experiences of practicing within the current therapy system, and just how backwards the system is.  This outdated and mismanaged structure not only produces overwhelm and burnout for therapists, but also prevents them from being empowered to help their clients.  They explain the difference between conventional therapy and the realm of coaching which has such a stigma, that it is disregarded and assumed to be illegitimate and unethical.  Rachel answers questions from the live audience and explains her view, and Gabby talks about how coaching being an “unregulated space” can be a very good thing. “The Irony of it was that all the people that were making decisions about my clients were people that were not actually working with my clients or actually therapists at all, it was just Upper Management and there was such a hierarchy, and there was no sense of Empowerment therapists to be able to advocate for their clients” -Rachel Kelly [3:42] Rachel Kelly, Emotional Wellness Coach, introduces herself and talks about the repetitive theme of toxicity and burnout in the conventional therapy space that she experienced for years on end [10:02] Rachel talks about how she was treated by her manager and director when she told them that she was “overwhelmed” with her job seeing way too many clients per week [18:41] The major difference between therapy and coaching, and why traditional clinical therapy is driven by politics and bureaucracy an horribly outdated [26:04] Rachel talks about how she started to discover the world of coaching and how the more she learned about it, she felt more and more drawn towards becoming a coach [27:58] Rachel and Gabby answer a question from the live audience “What do you think of folks who are coaching without psych training?  The stigma comes from folks giving bad unwarranted advice” [33:02] The GOOD and BAD of Coaching being an “unregulated space” This week’s guest was Rachel Kelly!

    SMASHING THE SYSTEM WHY WE DIDN’T GET LICENSED

    1:11:53

    Becoming a licensed therapist in our healthcare system is long grueling process filled with many sacrifices, and though it’s looked upon as the “ETHICAL” way to be an effective therapist, there are some MAJOR issues which make our system broken to the point that licensed therapists are disempowered and unable serve the people in our society that need support in their mental health. In this Episode, Gabby and Amber share their Journeys through the educational system with the goal of becoming “licensed therapists” only to realize that in the end, they could do so much more outside this broken system, which leaves therapists “overworked” and “underappreciated” not to mention “under paid” for that matter.  They dive into the different pillars this system is built on, and why they are crumbling, and tear down the notion that “License” means “Ethics” & how systematically flawed the DSM is. [1:43] Introduction to Amber, Clinical therapist, self-healer, chronic illness healer, Bad-Ass-Coach [4:55] Amber talks about why she decided NOT to become licensed despite having checked off ALL of the boxes to be fully licensed [7:44] Gabby explains why it is so important to always question the narrative and how  trauma cycles and peoples bias’s make it into the DSM and influence text books that have mass influence in our education system [13:04] Gabby and Amber discuss the unethical nature of having to give someone a diagnosis in order to be reimbursed and just how broken this system is [19:44] The false notion that a “License” means “Ethics” and how dangerous this assumption can be [24:49] The Crumbling of the system and paradigm shift happening in the age of Aquarius that we are in, and how the DSM is based on empirical research is based exclusively on white, heterosexual males [28:13] How women have been completely oppressed and essentially demonized by our mental health system and not so long ago were forced to undergo traumatic unethical medical practices [32:49] why Coaching gets such a bad reputation(on purpose) [45:45] Gabby and Amber talk about how many of the new modalities that insurance companies are rebranding as “therapy” are actually “coaching” modalities [48:29] The power of Pivoting and how being unregulated can be a very positive thing when you are willing to be self-aware, and willing to heal yourself so you can heal others [55:23] Amber talks about how she had to deal objections from her instructors,  therapist friends, and family when she decided not to move forward with becoming a licensed therapist [1:01:01] You can actively practice both as a therapist and coach, and protect license and business [1:01:37] Amber’s advice for anyone thinking about coaching and may be on the fence about pursuing the journey of being a coach This week’s guest was Amber Gordon!

    53:21

    The system sucks. It is built on unhealed trauma, and those in leadership positions perpetuate the cycle of harm.

And Gabby offers wisdom about focusing on those next steps right in front of you. The only thing stopping you is you.
