One of my niches is financial healing and Money Coaching. I enjoy helping women and couples heal their money shame and take control over their financial reality. The more I do this work or talk about money with friends and colleagues, the more I realize how many of us are shackled by money shame and limiting beliefs that prevent us from earning our full potential. Even the few lucky ones with a relatively healthy relationship to money have benefited from this work by reinforcing their supportive beliefs about money, enhancing their trust in themselves, and cementing their sense of self-worth and value.
This area of work is dear to my heart because I had struggled with conflicting beliefs and emotions about money for many years myself. I had so much money shame and feelings of unworthiness that I wouldn’t accept a close friend’s offer to buy me a $2 cup of tea. These feelings and frustrations had nothing to do with whether I was living on meager earnings as a recent college graduate or making quite a bit more as a corporate attorney at a big law firm. Guilt, shame, anxiety, a lack of proper financial education, or restrictive “truths” about money: we all seem to be saddled with one or more of these.
I wonder if you can relate to this?
I hoped to heal these hangups in my own therapy, but my core relationship to money remained unchanged until I dug into the real financial healing work myself. I am now aware of what comes up for me internally in different money situations. I can work through my experiences with mindfulness and self-care. This healing experience has also liberated me to have money conversations with others with clarity and compassion.
I invite you to join me in uncovering what stands in the way of having a healthy relationship to money, earning your worth, and learning to manage money-related guilt, shame, and anxiety with the right tools.
