At Bloom Recovery, we want to end the stigma surrounding mental health and help business owners and CEOs specifically with our coaching and consultation services because the suicide rate among CEOs is tremendously higher than it is among the general population. We want to help these people find balance, meaning, and purpose by getting to the root of their problem.
Our coaching and consultation services are meant for people who are successful on the outside but on the inside, riddled with anxiety and feeling like they shouldn’t be doing as well as they are professional, such as a CEO, a business owner or an entrepreneur who is together enough that they’re doing incredibly well professionally but stress of running their business or work is too overwhelming.
Have you ever felt that at any moment, people are going to find you out for being a fraud?
Every time you go into work, are you terrified that you’re not going to know what you’re supposed to be doing?
On the outside, these people appear to be doing really well but because of their past and whatever has been holding them back, they struggle to really live that part of themselves. The difference between therapy and coaching is this: With therapy, we have a diagnosis and a treatment plan, which can be very medically based. Coaching is more along the lines of setting up a specific goal, helping someone understand how to attain this goal while also showing them what barriers may be blocking them from achieving that goal, then holding them accountable in terms of reaching whatever the ultimate goal may be.
A lot of times, people go to therapy and they’ve prescribed a pill and it does help for that moment but does not get to the actual cause of the problem. People can come here to dig deep and go after the root of the problem. Heal and grow to become the best possible version of you.
Everything that people have a problem with generally stems from some sort of past traumatic event. This trauma can come from anywhere – it doesn’t need to be just for combat veterans with PTSD but it could be that one of your parents was bi-polar growing up and you never felt that they were stable enough to take care of you. It could be someone who was bullied a lot in high school and now when the boss speaks sternly to you, it feels like you’re being bullied all over again. These traumas are not always a life and death situations but could be the result of growing up in a chaotic environment that wasn’t very secure or stable. Divorce is another traumatic event that creates a lot of anxiety or depression for people.
