Our Emotions & Boundaries (Lisa Bloom)

  • Episode #48

In this episode, Lisa Bloom talks about practicing self awareness and creating boundaries around our empathetic responses. These practices protect us from emotional overwhelm and keep us present and grounded, so we can best hold space for our clients.

Lisa Bloom is a coach and Director of Mirasee’s ACES Business Acceleration Program. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • How your client’s challenges mirror your own.
  • What to do when a client’s issue triggers your own.
  • Holding space without buying into your client’s limiting beliefs.
  • How to check your own self awareness.
  • Creating boundaries with your emotions and empathy.
  • The importance of having your own coach or mentor to talk through things with.
  • Processes for self coaching and not taking work into your personal life.
  • Identifying comparative suffering to make sure you’re staying present with your client.
  • Letting go of personal stories that no longer serve you and helping your clients do the same.
“We can’t do this comparative suffering thing; we have to be able to see our client where they are and help them come up with strategies to deal with what they’re struggling with.”
