And I think you are amazing!
Kinda weird to hear that coming from a stranger huh? Well, I happen to think that each and every human on this planet (and perhaps others once the space program really takes off) is capable of fantastic things. I also happen to know that the majority of people don’t believe this and are truly brutal to themselves at times.
I came to this conclusion through a combination of factors:
1) Straight up academic learning - my bachelor’s degree is in applied psychology and I’m currently studying for my MSc in the same
2) Working with folks in a helping capacity for over a decade - I started my career working with at-risk children and families before transitioning to coaching for the Canadian Mental Health Association and now striking out on my own
3) The school of life - after my degree I started noticing a pattern of self-deprecation and self-sabotage among not only my clients but my loved ones as well (and maybe myself a little bit)
The knowledge that so many out there are not only missing out on fulfilling their potential but suffering in the process made me wonder.
What would the human race be capable of if we embraced the concept of self-compassion over self-hatred?
I want to find out, so I have made it my mission to start a self-compassion revolution.
I have already assisted every person who has worked with me to increase their self-compassion levels by at least 60% leading to improved confidence, sense of purpose, and workplace satisfaction.
I offer FREE 30 minute consults, let's schedule something!
I came to Kristen when I was really struggling with impostor syndrome. I was unable to figure out what I wanted to do or which direction to take my business. She helped me to overcome a lot of my inner negativity which allowed me to fully bloom within my career! She has a lovely, gentle way about her, and knows how to push just the right amount of motivation my way. I highly recommend having Kristen as your coach - she is wonderful and gets right to it!CJ Hollingworth
