Are you a therapist?
NO. I’m not a therapist. I’m not trained or licensed as a therapist, & my work with clients really isn’t therapy at all. (Though, I do love & pursue learning in the same subjects therapists do).
I’m a consultant, in that I offer suggestions, tools, and resources to my clients based on their situation individually. I support my clients as they implement strategies in their life & work.
I am also a coach – certified in Neuro Linguistics Programming – so I weave that in when beneficial as well. (“Coach” is a term I have trouble with too, and even my clients would tell you that I’m not really a coach either).
I’m a speaker and group facilitator. There’s nothing I enjoy more than speaking to groups & creating training/content specialized to those groups.
That being said, “therapist” is something people have called me all my life, even when I tell them what I just told you – that no, I am NOT a therapist.
The thought of saying “yes” to work like this makes me a little nervous. Is that normal? Does that mean I shouldn’t work with you?
Not gonna lie to you. I do have that effect on people.
Fear is a natural response to personal growth work like this. When people schedule sessions with me, stuff starts changing for them immediately. That’s just a fact, it’s been true with almost every single client.
Maybe you’re scared about the investment, maybe you’re unsure about what you’ll share with me. Maybe it’s something else entirely. Whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it.
On some (maybe deep and unknown) level, fear will pop up around work like this to keep you safe doing the same old thing.
Let me ask YOU a question – is the fear you’re feeling around the possibility of working together kind of excited fear? Maybe like butterflies in your stomach?
Take a deep breath, connect with the highest version of yourself, and ask – Is working with Brianna something I want to explore further? What answer do you get?
Something else? Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d be happy to answer any questions you have.
