In this episode, Lindsay and Andrea talk key components of why it matters to be trauma-informed:
When you do this work on yourself, you are able to minimize being triggered on calls.How it can be surprisingly quick to use these tools to tone down triggers.Why safety in groups matters, especially when we're processing emotions with respect to our stickiest relationships, and so much more.Certified Life Coach Andrea Giles is the host of the "Heal from Infidelity" podcast, as well as mother to 12 in a big blended family. Her main coaching focus lies in helping women decide to stay or go after infidelity in her signature program, "Know in 90." In addition to coaching and taking care of her family, Andrea loves good music, being outside, and traveling anywhere and everywhere.
She also claims to be a really good ping-pong and badminton player--and your host has now challenged her to a few matches next time they meet up ;)

Your host, certified life coach Lindsay Poelman started her journey of intentional healing started when she learned that her husband had been lying to her about pornography use for a greater part of their marriage. After processing and accepting her circumstance more fully, she found coaching—which propelled her into a forward focused state of empowerment.
Over the last four years of deep dive/fundamental coaching for women in betrayal (around porn use, spouses coming out around gender identity and sexuality, childhood neglect and abuse, substance abuse, infidelity, emotional abuse, domestic violence, institutional trauma, and more.), she has observed that if you’re working with humans, you can’t handpick clients who don’t carry trauma.
This is why I have developed a Trauma-Informed approach to mindset work and relationships that take into account the nuance of being a human. She believes that being trauma informed is an essential standard of care for coaches. She created this podcast to support life coaches who recognize that there is so much more than mindset work when it comes to supporting their clients responsibly.
