EPISODE 034: SHARON CHISHOLM, AWARD-WINNING COACH, WRITER, SPEAKER & PASSIONATE MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE
Sharon Chisholm is an award winning coach, writer, speaker and passionate mental health advocate.
In 2015 she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and anxiety, having been treated incorrectly for clinical depression for 12 years.
Sharon’s coaching journey began in 2009, but due to her undiagnosed bipolar disorder, she became too ill to continue her business. Late in 2014, Sharon felt able to return to coaching and her challenges have led her to work with people around the world who are struggling with the day to day challenges of living with mental illness. She has a particular interest in supporting those who run a small business whilst also managing mental health issues.
She writes for an online bipolar magazine (BP Magazine for Bipolar) and other online small business forums including Flying Solo and Smallville. She regularly speaks about her experiences of living and working with a mental illness and belongs to a number of focus groups dealing with mental health in the workplace.
