In this episode, I get to sit down with Lorrie Richins, a personal and family empowerment coach, and the business owner of Whole Family Mentoring. She focuses on helping individuals and families heal and feel whole again. Growing up, she experienced a lot of trauma in a fractured home, but today, she is a mother of seven, married for 34 years, and working to provide other families the tools she has acquired to improve their family lives.
In her experience helping people feel whole again and empowering fractured families, Lorrie has observed that most families face three main problems:
1) Ineffective communication: Lorrie shares some of the unhealthy ways people deal with problems, and how and why people struggle to express themselves.
2) Lack of proper problem-solving skills: From the perspective of a parent, Lorrie reveals how to groom children to have those developmental capacities.
3) Unresolved past trauma: Lorrie explains the trauma timeline technique, as well as some of her tools for opening the dialogue about childhood traumas.
Lorrie and Jen also discuss the four possible outcomes when a person decides to step into their own power in the relationship instead of allowing the other party to control them, as well as the SOS signs that your family relationship may be in need of professional help. Tune in to also find out how all of this translates and applies not just to family relationships but in your business as well.
