Next Steps

Hello Coach,

I am recently LCS certified and wanting to start my own business.

I ran into a hiccup. I am a woman in recovery from drug and alcohol dependence, had a bad relapse and recently just got out of a treatment center for that. I am off work right now and also struggling with feelings of loneliness after ending a relationship that I was also addicted to. Anyhow, now I am single, have a lot of time on my hands and am thinking that this would be a wonderful time to pour myself into being a life coach and starting my business.

I want my niche to be coaching women in recovery who are healing from childhood trauma. In order to do this, I feel like I need to: 1. get advanced training in trauma informed coaching and 2. get more recovery in my own life so that I can be there in healthy ways for my future clients. I know I have a lot of work to do, and it feels overwhelming, so I don’t even know how to start.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
