Heal Your Relationship with Yourself, with J Stamatelos
064- J Stamatelos is a professionally certified coach who helps people break out of fear so they can share their gifts with the world. J’s work focuses on “anxious insecurity” - a chronic feeling of insecurity that causes people to feel “never enough”. J’s coaching is based on academic research and data-driven approaches, and he personally lived through this hell and learned how to overcome it.
A note from Thomas: I have become increasingly skeptical of coaches due to the sheer volume of individuals peddling services to improve mental health, without any type of professional licensure. J is a notable exception to this norm and I am pleased to present this conversation.
