Six Strategies for Recovery After Crisis
And One You Should Never Consider
From Confidence, through Trauma and Back on Top
Like most people who have lived long enough, I have suffered instances of embarrassment and shame. At times by my own poor decisions and sometimes from having trusted an unworthy person. More recently however, I suffered a setback which knocked me to the ground. In this instance, I was targeted. I was publicly and professionally humiliated without much opportunity to fight back.
As I was searching for something, anything really, to help me get back on track, I read a quote, “a rumor can spread across the globe, before the truth puts it’s pants on.” That was certainly the case in my situation. Still, I was committed to recovering my reputation, which up until that point had been stellar. Relying on friends and family helped a lot, but even they began to tire of listening to the effects of my situation.
I had always enjoyed a glass of wine after work, but after this incident, I was drinking more, which was affecting my sleep and health. Even my blood pressure went up. All this from a situation I had no control over.
As time passed, I read of others experiences. Many enduring great cruelties from total strangers. As unpleasant as these stories were, they gave me relief to know there were people who were in worse situations than me. Maybe you have read some of these stories too?
Once I was in a better place, I found a great coach who specialized in working with people in my field. These coaching sessions helped me bounce back at work. It is through these sessions that I regained clarity and inspiration to help people recover after traumatic and humiliating experiences.
That is when I decided to become a certified coach. My training combined with extensive research and personal experience, as well as a Masters Degree and background as a counselor, make me motivated, qualified and dedicated to help you.
I have resources and a system that will give you “oxygen” and new life. I have worked formally and informally with people going through situations where they have been humiliated, slandered, defamed and embarrassed, sometimes from their own choices and sometimes as innocent victims.
You may want and desperately need to tell your story. I am here to listen objectively and help you move away from the event with dignity and purpose. This WILL NOT define you.
There is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing a person come back to life, to have hope and to know they can get back to being themselves again. The information I’m sharing, is for you. When I think back on that time in my life, what I really needed was someone to help me through it all, rather than taking on the burden entirely alone.
If you’re ready to experience the results of working together, I invite you to book your complimentary Reputation Assessment Session.
