Terry Boyle McDougall joins @drruth on the 37th Episode of Brain Health: Unchaining Your Pain and the 17th episode in series 2.

Terry Boyle McDougall is an Executive & Career Coach and CEO of Terry B. McDougall Coaching. She helps high-achieving professionals remove obstacles that keep them stuck so they can enjoy more success and satisfaction in their lives and careers.

Before becoming a coach, Terry was a long-time corporate marketing executive where she led teams, developed strategies and advised senior leaders to drive business results.

She is the author of Winning the Game of Work: Career Happiness and Success on Your Own Terms and host of the Marketing Mambo podcast. Born to very young parents with a mother that turned 17 two months after she was born, by the time she was 11 years old she had moved 41 times, which resulted in a lot of disruption in her life, and the need to be self-sufficient.

When she herself became a mother to her second son she reached out for support to address her internal belief systems after putting too much pressure on herself as a mum, trying to be a perfectionist.

In this episode, Terry talks about the difference between professional success and personal happiness, what can lead to stress and burnout, the importance of the mirror test and taking the time to invest in yourself and valuing your own worth.

‘”What’s success if you really don’t have the time or energy to enjoy it?”

This episode is particularly relatable for me as a mum. Sometimes you just need to acknowledge that you have spent nine months of intense energy physically and mentally creating a beautiful human being. It’s ok to be tired out, emotionally drained and not feeling like you can ‘do everything’ after giving birth.
