In this captivating conversation Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson is joined by trauma psychotherapy practitioner, supervisor, executive coach and author Julia Vaughan Smith to explore how trauma shows up in the coaching space and how coaches might better work with clients around it.
Julia shares how she has seen trauma emerge into the coaching space amid the current challenges posed by Covid-19, her thoughts around the role of coaching in trauma work, and how, in understanding trauma, as coaches we can better determine whether therapy might be more appropriate for a coachee. Julia also touches on the significance of receiving supervision as a coach working with trauma, as well as the importance of self-awareness and self-reflection to a trauma-informed coaching approach.
Julia Vaughan Smith is a trauma psychotherapy practitioner, supervisor, executive coach and author of Therapist into Coach (2005) and Coaching and Trauma (2019) with years of experience working with psyche-trauma. You can find out more Julia on her website.
