Disintegrate the Dependency Model

If you’ve been hip to the self-help industry for a while, you know there are certain paradigms when it comes to “helping” people. And if you know me, you know that I’m all about busting through those paradigms. I want to encourage you to do the same.


Here’s the gist of the old, stale approach vs. what I’d love to see coaches and influencers put out there:



OLD: Guru focused

NEW: Client focused


OLD: Lecture based

NEW: Guided group webinars


OLD: Constant consumption

NEW: Action oriented


OLD: Content overwhelm

NEW: Content integration


OLD: Product & brand driven

NEW: Client experience driven


It’s time to shake things up as wellness coaches. Instead of playing the guru role, give your clients methods and practices they can use to hone in on their intuition, in addition to working with you. My go to methods to assign are journaling and meditation, both of which will allow your clients to tap into their deep, inner knowing and build that trust with themselves and their intuition.
