I had a fantastic discussion with Krista St-Germain for this episode. Krista is a life coach for widowed moms, a career she started after losing her own husband in a tragic accident. We talked about a number of fascinating topics, including:
the differences between therapy and life coaching, and when you should consider one vs the other;
how our thoughts create our feelings, and some ways to get started with self-coaching to change our thought patterns;
what is post-traumatic growth, and how she sees clients hold themselves back from healing and growth; and
not trying to “fix” negative emotions in ourselves or our kids.
Talking with Krista gave me a lot to think about in my own life and my own parenting.
I hope you enjoy my discussion with Krista St-Germain.
