Show Notes

Whether you’re a coach or a clinician, doing your own healing work is an essential part of serving your clients to the best of your ability.

Today I have the distinct pleasure of interviewing author, educator, somatic psychotherapist, and podcaster, Laura Mae Northrup. Laura’s book Radical Healership has been such a fantastic read for me and my copy is filled with highlighted passages and notes in the margins of every page. She is also the host and creator of the podcast Inside Eyes, an audio series about people using entheogens & psychedelics to heal from sexual trauma.

There is so much wisdom in Laura’s book and she shared so many insights with us in this conversation. In the episode we talk about her perspective on how to create an ethical client-centered healing practice, what it was like for her to birth this book into the world, why embodiment is so important for healing practitioners, and more.

Enjoy the episode!

TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hello, my friend! Welcome to the Coach with Clarity Podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough and do I have a treat for you today. I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Laura Mae Northrup, who is a psychotherapist and the author of the new book, Radical Healership: How to Build a Values-Driven Healing Practice in a Profit-Driven World. This book, I have to tell you, if you were to see my paperback copy of it right now, I don't think you could read it because there are so many notes in the margins and highlighted passages because there is so much wisdom in this book, literally, on every page, I've got a note or a highlighted section. So I am just so thrilled to have Laura on the show and to hear more about her perspective around how to create an ethical client centered healing practice, whether you are a clinician or a coach, and we spent some time diving into the process of writing and what it was like for her to birth this book into the world because I know so many coaches dream of writing their first or their next book. So whenever I have an author on the show, I always love to ask them about their process and what it was like writing the book. I so enjoyed my conversation with Laura and I know you will too. So let's get right into it. I am so pleased to share with you my conversation with psychotherapist and author Laura Mae Northrup.
