    Many of the parents I speak to wonder if working with a coach is the right solution for them or their teens.

    Counseling (or therapy) has been the traditional means of looking for a deeper understanding of our thought patterns, beliefs, and habits for many years.

    Coaching is a relatively new option that is now available worldwide and has grown tremendously. The International Coaching Federation states that "between 2015 and 2019, the number of professional coaches worldwide increased by 33% globally and 33% in North America."

    But who are these coaches? What is their training? Does insurance cover coaching? When and for whom is coaching a good option? How do you know if you are getting a Life Coach with good training and a background that will ensure that you get what you need?

    Hilary Philips is has a master's degree in Professional Counseling and more than 15 years experience as a psychotherapist. She has created an online coaching program that can be found here - www.alignandconnect.com. We met through a business coaching group and became fast friends.

    We have different educational backgrounds and may serve different communities, but we have one important thing in common:

    We are passionate (and even frantic sometimes!) about helping people become their best selves.
    In this podcast interview, Hilary will provide an enlightening and unique perspective as to who could benefit from counseling and who could benefit from coaching, and how to know which service to choose.

    Anxiety 101: Perfectionism, Insecurities, Control, Discomfort, and Fear

    Anxiety 101: Perfectionism, Insecurities, Control, Discomfort, and Fear

    Today in this final episode of the Anxiety 101 four-part series, I share with you the main sources of anxiety that I see in myself and my clients.

    Perfectionism

    Insecurities

    Control

    Discomfort

    Fear

    Each has its own role in our lives and each can cause its own type of anxiety issues.

    I used to brag about being a perfectionist because I felt like it would mean that I was detailed enough and worked hard enough to be good enough. It was almost like a badge of honor I held. If you asked me to do something, I was going to do it exactly right.

    I was exactly wrong.

    But I desperately needed others to not see me for who I really was. So I held up that shield of perfectionism until I couldn't anymore. When I ran out of strength, emotional and physical, I was forced to put down that shield and show up authentically,  just the way I am.

    I couldn't have done it without the help and support of my own Life Coach. I am so grateful for her and all she did for me.

    If you need that support, reach out. Let's find someone who can help you through these issues so that you too can Come Home to Peace.

    Anxiety 101: An Insider's Look at Panic Disorders and the Long Term Health Effects of Anxiety

    Anxiety 101: An Insider's Look at Panic Disorders and the Long Term Health Effects of Anxiety

    This episode might feel a little heavy today, but the good news is that there is so so much help out there. Anxiety is so common that there are many places to go and treatment options available to help you get to where you’d like to be.

    Do you know the differences between panic attacks and anxiety?


    Panic attacks usually occur without a trigger. Anxiety is a response to a perceived stressor or threat.
    Symptoms of a panic attack are intense and disruptive. They often involve a sense of “unreality” and detachment. Anxiety symptoms vary in intensity, from mild to severe.
    Panic attacks appear suddenly, while anxiety symptoms become gradually more intense over minutes, hours, or days.

    How about when to seek help, what makes anxiety worse, and the long-term health effects of anxiety? 

    All this about anxiety and more are included in this episode of this podcast.

    Share with a friend who needs the extra support that's available. 

    Peace begins from the inside out. You too can Come Home to Peace.

    Anxiety 101: Uncovering the Latest Research on Anxiety in Today's Teens

    Anxiety 101: Uncovering the Latest Research on Anxiety in Today's Teens

    In part 1 of this Anxiety 101 series, we learned that anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s to come. The first day of school, going to a job interview, or giving a speech may cause most people to feel fearful and nervous.

    In part 2, we talk about what anxiety might look like in your teen and when to get them help. We will also review these helpful tips from https://childmind.org/article/what-to-do-and-not-do-when-children-are-anxious/ and practical ways to implement them.

    1. The goal isn’t to eliminate anxiety but to help your teenager manage it.

    2. Don’t avoid things just because they make your teen anxious.

    3. Express positive — but realistic — expectations.

    4. Respect their feelings, but don’t empower them.

    5. Don’t ask leading questions.

    6. Don’t reinforce your teens' fears.

    7. Encourage your teen to tolerate her anxiety.

    9. Think things through with your teen.

    10. Try to model healthy ways of handling anxiety.

    However, the best thing you can do if you have an anxious teen is to address your own anxieties and make sure you're modeling the behavior that is the most healthy for them to see. 

    Anxiety is totally treatable and the most common problem people contact me about.

I'll help you with some suggestions and make sure you know what path is right for you.

    Anxiety 101: Unlocking the Mystery Behind Anxiety

    Anxiety 101: Unlocking the Mystery Behind Anxiety

    Did you know...


    In the latest national study, only 38% of the respondents reported to NOT having anxiety. (That means 62% do!)
    Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older
    Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
    People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.
    Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.

    How do stress and anxiety differ from each other?

    What are the main different types of anxiety?

    What does anxiety feel like?

    Are there other causes of anxiety?

    Who is at risk for anxiety?

    In this episode, I'll answer these questions and more as we begin this 4 part series on understanding this common yet sometimes debilitating disorder.

    You'll want to be sure to tune in for the next 4 weeks!

    Helping Your Teen Develop a Healthy Body Image, Avoid Body Shaming, and Strengthen Their Self-Worth

    Helping Your Teen Develop a Healthy Body Image, Avoid Body Shaming, and Strengthen Their Self-Worth

    The digital scale read 201 pounds. I stared at it in disbelief. Although I had 2 young kids and an amazing husband, I couldn't imagine being worthy of anything if my weight was 201 pounds.

    I knew that ending my life that day would serve my husband, my two kids, my family members, and my friends the best. I would help them avoid the shame that they would feel having me around. My husband could marry someone new - someone who was worthy of their love and could be the parent they needed.

    I was sitting in a plasma donation center at that time. All my past suicide ideation thoughts came together. I knew what needed to be done and I could take care of it as soon as I got home and my husband left for work.

    That was back in 1998. But that wasn't the first time I associated shame and worthlessness with a number on a scale. My first diet was when I was in 5th grade. I dieted on and off for the next several decades of my life. If I weighed more than I should, I had less worth, value, and love. If I weighed less than I should, then I was more worthy, more loveable, and had more value.

    Does any of this sound familiar to you? Have you struggled with the same issues of body shaming and worthlessness? Do you struggle knowing how to help your kids develop a healthy relationship with food when you don't know what that even looks like?

    If you said yes to any of the above statements, the time for you to get help is RIGHT NOW. I have successfully worked in the weight loss industry with 100's of people over the past 15 years. This is an emotional issue that you need help and guidance to work through. This is especially essential if you have kids. 

    I will guarantee you that if you don't love yourself right now, the way you are and not the way you hope to be or wish you were or used to be, your kids will grow up feeling the same way about themselves. Their environment is made even more toxic because of the thousands of images they scroll through every day. Perfectionism is something they feel is a reasonable expectation of themselves now.

    When my teenage daughter developed an eating disorder, I didn't know where to turn. Now, I am equipped to help other parents so you won't feel like you have to navigate this journey on your own. 

    Book a free, no pressure, no obligation, discovery call today with me. I have limited spots open each week, but I want to hear your story and help you find the help that you or your teen needs!
