Individual Coaching with Leanne
Why Therapists and Coaches Need a Coach
Vulnerability is a big thing! Being an entrepreneur, business owner, creator and provider is all very vulnerable work. You are putting yourself out there on so many fronts and with so many people. When I first started my practice I was terrified I wouldn't make it. When I was picking up momentum in my practice I was terrified the momentum would end and things would fall apart. When clients didn’t come back I was sure I was a terrible therapist who wasn't worth it. We all can use support as we put ourselves out in the world.
How this impacted my business. It is hard to put yourself out there and give it 100% when part of you is convinced you will fail, or that you aren't good enough, or you that your worth is less than you should be charging. I would find myself backing off of new projects or opportunities to display what I was doing. Simply put— it is easy to lose our confidence. There are new projects, ideas, and clients waiting for you to step back into your full power.
At times I would also feel myself getting overwhelmed by the business side of things, or the burnout that would creep in. Then I would start shutting down. Instead of putting myself in a place of openness and expansion, I’d corner myself into a space of closing down and withdrawing. I could see the negative impact it had on both my personal life and my practice with more no-shows and less new clients. We need to make sure we keep our energy in a good place so that we are in an energetic space to receive clients.
The importance of energy and alignment. The more in alignment we are, the more we can allow things in our lives to flow without this push and pull energy. Instead of allowing your emotional state to teeter based on if things go as planned or not on a day to day basis, create a sustainable, long-term plan. By having a plan and support we can keep ourselves in alignment and in that positive flow.
Within our practices, there are many opportunities for things to be out of alignment, and many opportunities for us to bring everything back in alignment. This changes every aspect of our businesses from how we are present ourselves to others, to how our business is running, to how we show up for the work. The more in alignment we are, the more success can easily finds its way to us and the better it feels when it shows up.
How to know if I’m the right coach for you...and what the heck does a coach do anyway?
Excellent question. Here is what I bring to the table:
I specialize and focus on where you want to be. If you want someone to help you create a massive Instagram following or a digital empire, I will happily tell you that I’m not your girl. But if you want to have a successful private practice that brings your life balance, joy and consistent growth personally and professionally—I can take you there. I’m your person.
I’ve been there and dealt with it all. A lot of people out there preach business success when they have built their entire business on preaching business success rather than going out and obtaining it beforehand. I have built and maintained a six-figure therapy and coaching practice and learned (and conquered!) just about every tough issue out there.
I can see your blind spots. Hey, we all have blind spots—those things that hold us back without us even recognizing them. Sometimes all it takes is a bit of realization and a tiny adjustment to make a massive change on a whole new path. How often we miss these small opportunities because we don’t have anyone there to point them out!
I’ll help you create the space to check in with yourself so that you can do the things you need to do to be successful. In this world of business and helping others, it is too easy to not make the time for ourselves to check in. How often have you let a problem get way worse than it needed to be because you didn't catch it early on? It is crucial to break that cycle by giving ourselves time and space to check in.
