In this episode, Tracy speaks with Cognitive Behavioral Coach, Diann Wingert. Diann worked for 20 years as a psychotherapist. She was also an adjunct faculty member with the USC School of Social Work, training graduate students to become therapists at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She made the transition from psychotherapist to coach because she found coaching to be more successful at affecting real, positive change in her clients.
Diann saw far too many brilliant & capable women struggle with distractibility, procrastination, perfectionism, & self-doubt which held them back from expressing their gifts in the world. Many of them were diagnosed with anxiety or depression and had no idea that the underlying issue was actually ADHD, including Diann herself.
She is now on a mission to help other gifted, creative & entrepreneurial women of all ages, achieve their true potential through radical self-acceptance, leveraging their
strengths & creating an ADHD friendly business and life.
Diann goes on to share:
- Her definitions of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and how CBT differs from cognitive behavioral coaching (CBC).
- The role of therapy vs. coaching
- How you can change your self-concept with CBC.
- How our thoughts, feelings, and actions determine our results
- Who is a candidate for CBC/CBT? Who is not?
- Whether therapy and CBT/CBC can be conducted at the same time
- Why asking better questions is so important to our sense of self-esteem.
