There are some great resources here


I work as a coach and consultant, with training in trauma awareness, and the Power, Threat, Meaning Response Framework. Additionally, I hold a certificate in Applied Therapeutic Training. When coaching, it’s crucial to maintain awareness of the boundary between coaching and therapy, knowing when to refer clients to specialists or experts if it’s in their best interest. Over time, I’ve gathered various resources that could be beneficial, including self-help workbooks or worksheets, which you can access here.
