37. Therapy vs. Coaching + Self-Actualization with Jenny Maenpaa


Are you surviving in life? Or are you thriving? Is everything just a high? Or do you wake up to a different reality? 

I love my life — I do feel that I am flourishing. I feel like I can take my attention away from the basics of food, clothing, shelter, making money, and running errands to exploring my ultimate purpose in life. Where do I want to go? Who do I want to be? What are my values? 

But it took me time to get here. (And plenty of mistakes and detours, since we’re being honest.) 

Do you have the headspace to craft and curate a life that allows that type of freedom? Maybe, maybe not. 

In this episode, we are talking with Jenny Maenpaa. We dive into self-actualization goals, boundaries, differences between therapy and coaching, and how to truly capture the essence of who you are using all of the facets of your personality to move towards your highest self. Stay tuned, and let’s go!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • All about self-actualization goals
  • Key differences between therapy and coaching
  • A frank look at boundaries and why you need them
  • How to embrace everything that makes you YOU so you can live your heart’s purpose
  • A journal prompt of Jenny’s core values and living in alignment with them
