As I wrap up my Financial Awareness Month conversations I wanted to invite you to continue the conversation with me in my community or inside your own community. I'd love to speak to your group or on your podcast about Financial Therapy.
I mentioned earlier this week that I’m participating in the Midlife Conversations Summit with Natalie Jill, and this is one way that I’m continuing the conversation.
This summit is focused on providing tips and inspiration for women who are navigating the challenges and opportunities that come with midlife. I'm excited to share my insights on how financial therapy can help women in this stage of life to find clarity and a sense of purpose while working to reach their financial goals.
My episode will be airing at the end of May but you can register right now. I’d love for you to tune in and listen to our conversation so you can determine why you’re not thriving financially< “yet”. Natalie is a great...
What if I told you that emotional health and financial health are not only important but are highly intertwined? Yes, our emotions and finances are each highly affected by each other— especially as business owners.
Emotional spending is a phenomenon that can affect anyone. People from all backgrounds can experience the impact of emotional spending; however, the stressors that may cause emotional spending and financial distress are magnified with business owners who are striving to show up authentically and pour the best of themselves into their craft.
What is emotional spending? It is when one spends money on extra expenses as a response to intense emotions. These emotions can range from glee to depression to anxiety and even grief. There is no one way in which it manifests itself. Here are three examples of emotional spending:
Last week’s blog post provided some fascinating insight on what happens during my hypnotherapy and financial therapy sessions. In that particular post, I revealed that each patient’s one-on-one session will be different from each other, but they do share a few similarities which include some of the questions that I ask them during the session. Occasionally, symptoms and where they originate from are similar with patients, as well.
One reason for this similarity is that approximately 75-85% of our money and love programming is in place before we are seven years old. This means most of us are making life decisions based on our childhood programming. The questions I ask during my sessions enable me to uncover the unconscious messages that were deeply implanted from such a young age. Ultimately, this will help me identify what the patient is really trying to create in their lives.
In last weeks post, I gave you 5 Questions I Ask Every Patient. As I uncover a patient’s...
Many therapy sessions focus on “the problem” and require the patient to talk about that problem over and over...until maybe, they are so tired of talking about it that they finally take action. Talk therapy in many instances focuses on self-awareness. Although I am a trained counselors and I do believe awareness has its place, the Financial Therapy I administer is focused on healing and not necessarily awareness. Awareness doesn’t equal healing.
At PRESIDENTIAL LIFESTYLE we’ve branded our Financial Therapy and call it Prosperous Life Coaching. Because healing is the focus of the program, I use hypnotherapy to facilitate healing, but I have access to ten different healing modalities. If you live long enough you will experience trauma. What the brain codes as trauma is complex. What may appear to be a small forgettable event to one, is a life altering event for another.
Like traditional talk therapy, in financial therapy some of the questions asked are...
Financial Therapy is a pretty new field, but lately, more and more people are becoming curious about it, including the New York Times. I also recently received a referral from a Financial Advisor who's client specifically requested to speak to a Financial Therapist.
I was recently featured in a New York Times article about Financial Therapy. It was called, “When Getting Money Hurts.” The author interviewed survivors who were receiving settlements because of a traumatic experience. She also interviewed me. We discussed how patients can best heal from an experience that triggers you on a regular basis. They choose me because of my background in counseling, trauma work, and Financial Therapy.
Below is the part of the article where I was quoted. (To read the full article see the link below.)
As a specialist in financial therapy who is based near Atlanta, Kiné Corder encourages clients to deal with the trauma separately. “You...
When it comes to your money, you get to decide how you want to spend it and whom you’d like to spend it on. However, the thought process that drives those decisions was put in place way before you ever received your first dollar. Studies show that about 75% of our money beliefs are in place by age three. And 95% are in place by fifteen years old.
We default to childhood to make a money decision because that’s when our brains put our beliefs about money in place. This is true about all of our decisions, of course. The subconscious brain makes interpretations as we are growing and these interpretations slowly become our love, life, and money believes.
I call the money belief system your Money Mentality. Your Money Mentality is your money reality, because that’s how you perceive it. What you perceive, you believe, and you receive. What you believe about money shapes your life.
I’ll walk you through each Money Mentality and how they give and receive...
