I met with Teresa from Inside Out this morning in her office. As I walk into her office she has muffins and a soda on the table waiting for me. Ok, not just me, I think maybe they were for all her clients because there were a bunch of muffins. I haven't had a real coke in a very long time and I wasn't exactly sure why she was suggesting that I drink it. I soon did though. To piggyback on what Lucas said in an earlier session with me, supplying your brain with proper nutrients like (real) sugar helps the brain to function while performing different tasks, whether mental or physical. Your brain is used in both kind of activities.
This was my first meeting with Teresa, who is a Master Certified Life Coach as well as a Zhealth Practioner with Inside Out. Our goal at this meeting was to go over whatever background I felt that was important for her to know in order to help me become the best version of myself. I've had many therapist throughout my life and I could BS with the best of them. This is important, If I'm not 100% honest with Teresa, she can't help me get to where it is I want to go. So, it is my promise to myself and to this program the I will be completely honest in our meetings.
Teresa started off by telling me a bit about herself and how she got to where she is now. She has a very interesting story and she is super knowledgeable about Z-Health, mental health and life coaching. I'm very happy to be working with her.
We did some background work to find out where exactly I might want to start working on. Shockingly, it wasn't what I thought it was going to be, but it is certainly something that has needed to be addressed for sometime. I told her that I wasn't ready to do that just yet and she absolutely agreed. "Your mind will let you know when your ready" she said. I know that she has my best interest in my mind. One more thing that I loved about our session was that she doesn't just explain something by just telling me, she draws it out on paper so that I can visually see what she means. No other therapist, life coach etc. has ever done something like that! Looking forward to our next chat Teresa.
