One of the things I love about being a therapist is the privilege of witnessing the transformation in my clients. Last week, it was humbling to wrap up an emotional ending to my Self Care for Success course where therapists explored their relationship to caring for themselves as the foundation for building a private practice.
What I learned from the Sista students was how important it was for them to be seen and heard in the content that was designed specifically with the black women experience in mind. The result was not only about having the right tools to take care of themselves as business owners, but a shift in how they feel about themselves in the present.
There was tears and pride ignited from the mirroring and conversations around releasing the shame that blocks growth. There was hope in witnessing the collective struggles and wins in the storytelling and excitement around embracing the sacredness of black womanhood as a tool for liberation and healing in themselves and their clients.
If you’re struggling to lean into a project or your business, you are not alone. Remember that community is everything and if you can find the willingness to start, the courage to take the first steps will follow.
If you’re a wellness practitioner or a newly qualified therapist looking for a community to nurture your business, the magic continues in the North Star Business School on Wednesday 29 November 2023. The next offering is Foundational Money Moves where we’ll explore our current and historical relationship with money along with the practical processes and systems required to earn money in private practice.
