Show Notes

Erin Gibb, a Fulfillment Coach for therapists and the host of Therapist Expanded, joined me for Menders episode 28. Erin is creating a revolution within the sphere of mental health treatment!
In this episode, Erin shares her philosophy of caring for and nourishing her healthcare organization as a living organism, before turning her attention to the well-being of the clinicians working in her organization, and then finally to the well-being of the people who receive care in her clinic. She shares that while her approach feels counterintuitive to many, focusing on organizational well-being has had far-reaching impacts and has created waves of healing and sustainability throughout her community. 

Her early experiences working with First Nations people in a community with limited mental health resources have taught her to understand the principle of interdependence and the importance of focusing on organizational and clinician healing and wellness. When the organization heals itself, the people being cared for by the organization are empowered to heal the community. 

Erin shares how she has created a thriving clinical community based on the core value of freedom. Now she coaches her clinicians to connect with the essential elements of their “being” and their deepest dreams and desires. Not only is this transformative for the people working as clinicians, but the people they are serving are also able to experience greater levels of healing, and freedom, and learn to become truly self-honoring. 

Listen to find out: 

  • What lessons Erin learned about culturally sensitive care while working with First Nations people in Northwestern Canada. 
  • Why Erin prioritizes the well-being of her organization above client outcomes.
  • And why she believes that taking responsibility and owning our power create a revolution within the healthcare system!

My favorite quotable moment from this episode!

“Mental health revolution comes from therapists, caregivers, healthcare providers, putting their needs first, as that will actually help everyone.”
