Interview with Coach Martha Tassinari
How did you become an expert on boundaries and Courageous Conversations?
I’ve been mentoring, supporting, and coaching women with their life challenges for over 20 years. I actually started out as a traditional physical therapist in the early 90’s and soon realized that there is a significant connection to our body, mind, and spirit.
I started noticing how many of these women who came to me for physical therapy were struggling with some deep emotional, mental, spiritual, and energetic issues that were affecting all aspects of their lives including their physical body. They were dealing with relationship/boundary issues, anxiety, avoiding important conversations in their relationships, depression, loss, fear, and self doubt.
I realized that at the root of all these struggles-was a boundary issue. Lack of boundaries was keeping these women stuck and from moving forward with their lives and businesses. In addition, they were not able to speak up for themselves or have what I call courageous conversations. This was contributing to much of their physical and emotional pain, not to mention their productivity and success at work and in their careers.
I discovered a system to create Brave Boundaries™ called the Boundary Breakthrough Method™. It is a process I take my clients through so that they can learn to create boundaries and discover what is keeping them from creating boundaries in their work and personal life.
I know from personal experience how difficult life challenges can create major stress, drain your energy, steal your spirit, and create a great deal of pain both physically and emotionally. It was affecting me from moving forward with my life and my business.
I immersed myself in reading all the personal growth, self-help, and spiritual books I could get my hands on. I became the queen of “Amazon”.
I enrolled in a variety of personal development/personal growth workshops. I was searching….
Finally, I prayed for God’s guidance and made a decision: I decided to make my life and health a priority and to do whatever it took to find the courage to change, rise above my situation, and free myself from this pain and stress.
I started reading the bible, devotional books, and went back to church. I realized God was the missing piece in my life.
I realized God was the missing piece in my life.
In addition, I hired an amazing Life Coach! She lovingly guided me every step of the way as I became aware of past patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that were keeping from moving forward with my personal and professional life.
I developed a strong faith and relationship with God. I realized having a strong relationship with God was the key element in overcoming my fear of uncertainty, anxiety, self doubt, and my ability to step into my own courage.
Although I didn’t see it at the time,I discovered that my deepest wounds actually became my greatest gift! This has led me to my life purpose.
I became a Certified Christian Life Coach, immersed myself in learning about boundaries and how to have courageous conversations.
Making Brave Choices and creating Boundaries are everything!
Most recently, my life transition which really hit me like a ton of bricks was August of 2014 when I was diagnosed with right lung cancer. I was diagnosed 4 weeks after riding my bike 55 miles! My husband and I were in the process of moving to a new home 2 days after my diagnosis. This was not part of our plan. I’m blessed to say that after 2 major lung surgeries and a near death experience I’m “cancer free” today.
I understand how life challenges can turn our lives upside down!
During my recovery, a new truth came to me. This life transition of cancer would be create a new personal and professional path for me.
My mission is to inspire, empower and support women around the globe to have courageous conversations, create personal and professional boundaries, step into their courage, manifest their deepest vision of themselves, experience success in their business, and create a life full of joy, passion, purpose.
Who are your clients?
I work with professional women, entrepreneurs, coaches, companies and consultants. They are 100% ready to invest in themselves and their business. They are motivated, willing, and able to take personal responsibility for taking action and creating change in their personal and professional lives
What types of struggles or challenges do your clients have?
The women I coach oftentimes struggle with difficult life challenges such as:
- Avoiding difficult conversations in their professional and personal life
- Feeling overwhelmed and out of alignment with personal life and business schedule
- Divorce, separation/codependent relationship or change in relationship
- Unable to set personal or professional boundaries
- Focused on taking care of everyone else and not following through with their own self-care
- Issues with money, self worth, confidence, and self-esteem
- Often get sidetracked in their businesses secondary to outside circumstances
- Career change/relocation
What types of results do your clients experience from working with you?
My clients experience increased self-esteem, confidence, and clarity with their present and past life situation. They are able to enjoy success in their business, more meaningful and loving personal and professional relationships .
They learn how to break through their fears and old conditioned self-sabatoging patterns that have been keeping them stuck for years.
My clients experience a feeling of empowerment as they learn to set personal boundaries, connect to their spiritual connection, discover their true core values, and align themselves with their authentic self(their true spirit).
Ultimately they learn at a deep soul level how to navigate and frame their life challenges with grace and ease and in a way that will allow the most growth and opportunity to happen.
They are able to experience joy, love, and personal freedom when they embrace life’s challenges as a catalyst for personal transformation and successful entrepreneurship.
It is in creating this shift that my clients gain clarity in their life purpose, business, attract healthy relationships, enjoy financial freedom and are able to experience joy no matter what their outside experiences.
I always encourage potential clients to review my testimonial page and read the results others have experienced.
What makes you different from other coaches? What is unique about the Institute?
I love this question! There are so many life coaches out there and many qualified ones. It can be so confusing.
What I do is unique and very different from life coaching!
Typical life coaching concentrates on specific goals and action steps without addressing all the components(physical, mental, spiritual,energetic, and emotional).
Many life coaches tend to create this neat little box of programs and an agenda for their clients to reach their goals. This may work for some, but for others it can be discouraging and tiring not to mention an expense .
I believe the key to life transformation is to heal all layers of the body, mind, and spirit.
To manifest your visions and dreams you need to clear the clutter from both the present and the past.
It is when we are disconnected from our authentic self and spiritual connection we start to feel out of alignment in many aspects of our lives and start to doubt ourselves. We don’t trust our own intuition.
I act as Catalyst for my clients and guide them to clear all the emotional debris and old belief patterns (both consciously and subconsciously)that are keeping them from living their purpose and being who they came here to be.
I teach them how to open up their heart to their life mission so that they can tap into their own intuition consistently and hear the messages that God is revealing to them. Quite often we lack the clarity of what path to take with our life or business. I guide my clients to help them make brave choices as what path is calling to them and create an action plan with specific steps on how to get there.
It is amazing once this emotional and energetic clutter is cleared how my clients are able to tap into their divine reservoir of courage. This allows my clients to fully connect to not only their purpose, but a life where they are fully connected to their True Spirit.
My clients experience the freedom of making conscious, healthy choices and decisions.
I use a variety of tools and resources for my private clients that I have created over the years through my personal life experiences and extensive professional training through my own mentors,coaches, and guides. In addition, I’ve been trained in Heart Centered therapy, Somatoemotional Release and an array of holistic healing methods.
As your coach, I know what is possible for you. I believe you! If I can do it so can you!
