Welcome to Woke by Linda

I am a life coach and behavioral therapist and I mainly focus on trauma. 
I therefore guide people who are motivated and want to be their best self. Due to trauma and limited beliefs we completely lose sight of where we stopt our growth.






Exposure to chronic, prolonged traumatic experiences has the potential to alter children’s brains, which may cause longer-term effects in areas such as:

  • Attachment: Trouble with relationships, boundaries, empathy, and social isolation

  • Physical Health: Impaired sensorimotor development, coordination problems, increased medical problems, and somatic symptoms

  • Emotional Regulation: Difficulty identifying or labeling feelings and communicating needs

  • Dissociation: Altered states of consciousness, amnesia, impaired memory

  • Cognitive Ability: Problems with focus, learning, processing new information, language development, planning and orientation to time and space

  • Self-Concept: Lack of consistent sense of self, body image issues, low self-esteem,shame and guilt

  • Behavioral Control: Difficulty controlling impulses, oppositional behavior, aggression, disrupted sleep and eating patterns, trauma re-enactment

Don't hesitate

to seek professional help.

The Differences Between Coaching and Counselling:

Coaching Helps You Take Action and Counselling Enables You to Cope.

Coaching and counselling, both germinate with the same premise. The presumption for both will always remain that every individual undergoes pain in their life in some form or the other. And that many individuals do not go to the bottom of the core problem and rather live with the wound unhealed - raw or camouflaged. This happens more unconsciously and many accept their problem as part of life and do not feel the need to seek help. Sometimes these often recurring problems are so entrenched into their daily way of living, that it seems normal.




This is mainly due to the lack of awareness on what counseling and coaching are and what it has to offer and how it can help people. Some people also live in denial and do not want to accept they have a problem. The social stigma and acceptance level of going to a counselor or a coach, let alone a psychologist or a psychiatric is still very negative. This can lead to self-sabotage of some kind.

At some point in their life, to desire a different result, they must allow themselves to become vulnerable, to seek help. After all, everything you want is on the other side of fear. 



Mental illness like prolonged bouts of feeling sad or depressed for no apparent reason, where going through with your day to day activities becomes a challenge, or feeling suicidal requires immediate help and clinical treatment. On the other hand if you are surrounded with stress and don’t know how to handle it, like un-reconcilable differences or conflict in a relationship or at work, you feel stuck in life, you lack motivation and don’t know what the next better step in life is, or you are curious and want some help with introspecting life, what do you do?  If you do decide to step out and seek help to help, would you go to a counselor or a life coach?



The biggest difference in coaching and counselling is the difference in approaches. Life coaches focus on creating a new life path to achieve certain goals. They help you introspect and help you find your solutions. They focus on the now and what next. 


Whereas counselors focus on specific problems in hand and look into emotional resolutions to past problems to move forward, finding solutions to those specific problems, while making ‘healing’ as one of the main objectives.  One must be aware of the many areas of overlap between these above methods of seeking help.


You seek a life coach when you are surrounded with stress, feel stuck in life with a problem or an  issue, not knowing how to handle it and feel frustrated in life, you have low self-confidence,  you need motivation, you need to be a better version of yourself and need that push, you need help to reflect your next step, you are unhappy and unsatisfied in your job and maybe want to change your job or your profession, you are feeling low, you have a relationship issues, you want a better work-life balance, you want to improve your health but don’t know the next step and you need someone to handhold you, you procrastinate and waste time and need help in planning and organizing your life better.
