    Why You Need Support As a Helping Professional

    Why You Need Support As a Helping Professional

    Will Rēzin and I got together today to discuss the importance of leaning into support as a coach, therapist, healer and/or helper. We not only talk about many aspects of my own Body of Work and my program Body of Work... we talk about how high integrity and ethical care providers can up-level their skill so they can be regulated, centered and skilled when sitting with clients and running their businesses with ease.

    Embodying Presence Pt. 1 with Ryan McGladrey

    Embodying Presence Pt. 1 with Ryan McGladrey

    This is Part 1 of a 2-part series.

    In this episode series, Ryan McGladrey, DOMTP and I nerd out about the nuances of embodied presence and how that can serve and support those we work with. The foundation of our conversation is exploring the simplicity of being present with another human and the power of seeing people just as they are. Throughout both episodes, we examine the following:


    Our top tips on how do we go deeper by going lighter and how can we come home to ourselves in each moment?
    We get vulnerable on how do we meet each other with genuine presence and what medicine, healing and growth comes from it for each of us.
    How do we welcome what's been exiled and care about anything that shows up with our clients and patients in sessions?

    Ryan and I have known each other for nearly 20 years and this episode is a glimpse of our many conversations discussing how we can be most supportive in our therapeutic connections.

    Click here for Part II, where we go into more of the "how-to's" and practices of what we explore here.

    Embodying High Integrity Branding and Marketing with Natalia Sanyal

    Embodying High Integrity Branding and Marketing with Natalia Sanyal

    How do we use marketing as a force for good?  Natalia Sanyal joins me in an engaging conversation around how we can connect with our audiences and clients in a way that doesn't cause harm. Drawing from our own lived experience and our work with clients, we discuss:


    The potential to feel more aligned with the way we share our work to the world in a marketing space that has historically been oppressive, manipulative and demanding
    How we can give ourselves more space for marketing in a trauma-informed way, while giving ourselves so much permission to be imperfect and to truly have space to be ourselves

    By working together as a culture, we can find ways to create choice, empowerment and inspiration towards marketing that is high integrity.

    About Natalia

    Natalia is an anti-oppressive copywriter and brand messaging strategist.

    In the last decade, she has worked with billion-dollar businesses, New York Times bestselling authors, and award-winning marketing agencies. Now she teaches high-integrity personal brands to use marketing as a force for good—so that they can create demand without causing harm to humanity and to themselves.

    Steady and Secure As We're Tending Business and Clients with Danielle Cohen

    Steady and Secure As We're Tending Business and Clients with Danielle Cohen

    In this episode, Danielle Cohen and I discuss what's happening in the field right now in ourselves and our clients around business growth. We approach questions like:


    How do we approach business growth authentically?
    How do we stay healthy, inspired and in a state of self-trust when we can't control external circumstances around income, marketing and industry "standards"?

    If you are a helper, a wellness entrepreneur, a creative, a coach or a therapist, this might resonate with you and offer you new ways of grounding down into your business - doing your thing, your way.

    We can be in our work in a connected, embodied and supported way.

    Whatever your bank account doesn't or doesn't do - you get to feel more steady and secure.

    About Danielle:

    Danielle Cohen (she/her) is a visibility coach and brand photographer with a unique approach to helping pro-social creative entrepreneurs, coaches, visionaries, and healers (aka beacons) step into and offer their greatest work by becoming more visible on their terms, owning their story and their magic, having the impact they’re here to have and thriving while doing it.

    Nourish and Regulate for Business Expansion with Tamsin Crimmens

    Nourish and Regulate for Business Expansion with Tamsin Crimmens

    This is a behind-the-scenes follow-up conversation to the Nourish Experience that Tamsin Crimmens and I offered last month. We were so fired up about the themes and concepts that we wanted to keep going. We cover topics such as: 


    How we define and experience success somatically 
    Moving from capitalist/patriarchal productivity, performance and comparison to sustainable, healthy and connected business 
    Institutionalizing Empathy and Feeling 
    Creating structures that support and nourish your body and all the other bodies you know 
    Anchoring inner resources and stitching them together 
    More definitions of what regulation really is and how we support it 
    Supporting unique brains and approaches to work in ways that are supportive 

    ....and more! If you love the conversation and want to sign up for Nourish to be guided through a 2-hour somatic experience of this, it's available for you to sink into right now! https://shelby-leigh.thinkific.com/pages/nourish

    Here is a little bit more about Tamsin:

    Tamsin is a writer and mentor for (quietly) revolutionary coaches, healers and world-changers. She’s obsessed with helping best-kept-secrets who’d love to be more “industry famous” to discover the medicine in their message, feel safe enough to share it, and get paid for their ideas.

    A rare mix of space holder, storyteller and entrepreneur, she helps women who are tired of playing small to activate their Inner Creatrix (that all-powerful creative energy that makes magical messaging) so they can freak their audience out and have them saying “How are you inside my head!!?”

    As a former journalist with bylines in ELLE, Stylist, Grazia, The Guardian, The Telegraph, and The Sunday Times Style mag, she’s written about it all and interviewed everyone from Caitlin Moran to Stella McCartney.

    Along a journey that’s taken in everything from political communications and women’s magazines to the world of yoga, womb and somatic healing, Tamsin follows the philosophy of 'Body First, Mind Second’, to support her clients to access their deepest truth and express it in a way that builds sustainable success.

Just what I needed…

The latest podcast was like a warm bowl of Pho to my heart and for my practice. Checking ourselves in that moment and making sure we are hearing our clients makes such sense. Sometimes, I hit “go” on the advice. I’m gonna savor the soup a bit…

Shelby is a treasure trove of enlightenment

I met Shelby many years ago and thought she was a nut when she told me I needed to heal my trauma in order to move forward and be happy. I thought I just needed to lose the baby weight and my ex boyfriend needed to die a slow and painful death, that’s all! Years later, after therapy and EMDR, I am blown away by her and how immature I was when she told me this. She is a beacon of light in this journey of life! Also, her voice is incredibly soothing and healing in its own right. Listen to her, this podcast and her words are truly a gift to us!!
