80. A Phoenix Rising | Contessa Akin
Play • 1 hr 5 min

When you have been abandoned as a toddler, abused, traumatised, experienced post natal depression, had a newborn die, which lead to thinking about ending it all, you need to be a phoenix rising!


Emerging from trauma stronger, smarter, and more powerful, Contessa Akin found her way to being an Emotional Wellbeing Coach to nearly a thousand women. As she embarked on her healing journey her intuition guided her to free seminars that focused on self-worth, growth and positivity. A landscape that was foreign to her. This eventually led to her becoming a highly certified and successful life coach. Having been there herself, she understands the challenges women are dealing with and helps them find their own well of hope, self-worth and so much more through her signature Phoenix Process.


**PLEASE NOTE - This could be a tough listen for some as it deals with confronting subjects of child loss, suicide and sexual abuse. Though it's also testament to rising above the worst life can throw at you.


In this episode, Contessa shares the following:

  • When you decide to say 'No' to suicide, then what? What do you do with the heaviness you are still carrying.
  • Finding herself doing a Dr Phil Emotional Intelligence class and where that led
  • Why safety, peace and trust are cornerstones of healing
  • A walk through of how to deal with a tough emotion
  • What doing a fire walk is really about and what it says about how you deal with life... and so much more!



"I just followed my intuition. I didn't like do a lot of searching online. I didn't do a lot of reaching out for help. I didn't do any of that stuff. What I did is I actually started just attending like you know, like real estate seminars." ~ Contessa Akin
