Have you experienced some of the tremendous benefits in keeping a personal writing practice, and now you feel the urge to help others obtain those same benefits?
In this episode, Heather Severson helps me list of some of the numerous ways to go about becoming a “Journal Coach”. And with a dose of giddy playfulness, I also remind everyone, in the words of Dr. Frankenfurter, “Don’t dream it; Just be it!”
There are several options discussed in this audio, so don’t feel there is just “one right answer” here. But there are some pragmatic and trusted roads you can take that will land you into being a confident and effective coach. Among my most highly recommended, especially for “non-therapists” is this:
Become a life coach who uses journal-writing as the primary tool to help clients get unstuck, and transform old patterns that no longer serve them. Take this assessment to see if Frame of Mind Coaching is a beneficial path for you! I am an affiliate of the Frame of Mind Coaching program because I absolutely love it, and strongly recommend it.
