Positive Psychology with Emiliya Zhivotovskaya
I had the immense pleasure of speaking with Emiliya Zhivotovskaya about her journey of loss and how intuitive principles of resilience and positive psychology helped her heal and thrive through all her challenges by reframing and finding meaning from all her life experiences into thriving and post traumatic growth that drove her to study Positive Psychology and many other modalities and founding the Flourishing Center that has now trained over 1,600 coaches in over 53 countries and continue on a mission to spread the flourishing to as many individuals, organizations and schools as possible. We discussed in detail the principles of positive psychology, which include managing our mind, our emotions, our physical bodies and our social/spiritual needs as well as the importance of incorporating our bodies in the healing and thriving process. Healing and mindset are a crucial part of personal growth, but principles of Positive Psychology is what gets us to thrive and flow! It is when we incorporate it all, when we can take healing and thriving to the next level! You can find Emiliya at the www.theflourishingcenter.com and @theflourishingcenter on IG.
Combining Mindfulness, ACT and EMDR Therapy with Dr. Michelle Maindenberg
We continued our conversation from episode 91 on Mindfulness and discuss how she incorporates CBT, (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), that is also practiced by most Certified coaches, as well as ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) skills in identifying our core values, with also looking deeply to our old wounds with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) when is applicable. And when this also incorporates a Mindfulness practice it can be very powerful and take healing to the next level, especially when it comes to saving our marriages or in healing after divorce.
The Importance of Mindfulness to Cope and Heal with Dr. Michelle Maidenberg
I had a heartfelt and important discussion with Dr. Michelle Maidenberg about Mindfulness, what it is, how it works and how it differs from other more cognitive therapeutic modalities. We discussed why it is hard to achieve and our propensity to avoid paying attention and feeling to our thoughts and feelings, which she discussed at length on her Ted Talk: Circumventing Emotional Avoidance. She shared it’s evidence based validity, its tremendous benefits to our brain and to cope with anxiety and the stressors of everyday life and to heal. We ended our conversation sharing how it changed both of our personal lives and how it can change yours.

How Your Thoughts Affect Your Divorce, with Melissa Kalil
If you want to reduce conflict, improve the outcomes of your divorce, and learn how coaching can significantly help you, this is the episode for you! This is a new and exciting episode for me, as I interview one of my very first divorce clients, Melissa Kalil, who profited from coaching so much that she decided to become a coach herself! She wanted to share her coaching experience with you, to let you know that you are not alone in this, and to share with you detailed examples of how coaching helped her and can also help you too! We discussed some of the more common thoughts that she had after her own divorce, and that are so common after divorce e.g. this is all my fault, or I now have baggage and no one will want to date me. etc etc. We explain how these thoughts can become stories that we then believe and become destructive enough to significantly affect your life, your progress, the conflict and outcome of your divorce AND your healing journey. After her own personal experience with divorce, and her own coaching experience, Melissa Kalil became a Certified Professional Coach and a Certified Divorce Specialist and is getting certified in NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programing and she explains how it works! Melissa has coached me, and I can testify that she is an amazing coach and that she is passionate about helping others manage and organize their mind through all stages of divorce, especially those in high conflict situations.

How Our Thoughts Affects Our Weight and Appearance
Our weight and appearance comes up a lot with my male and female clients as they want to start dating after divorce. On this episode, I explain why research shows that most diets do not work and why working with a coach or Cognitive Behavioral therapist would be extremely beneficial for your weight loss goals or to feel better about your appearance. I explain why what we think about our weight or appearance directly affects how we feel and therefore what we do and don't do, that then perpetuates the same unsatisfactory or negative thoughts about ourselves. I give several examples of these thoughts and how it affects us and what we can do to get the results that we want or feel the way we want and deserve to feel.
