Fair Play and Burnout

I am so excited to bring you today’s interview on fair play and burnout. Today’s show is an interview with Dr. Welsh. She shares all the things that we need to learn, know and practice to live a life we love. If you are someone who feels like they could be labeled as a perfectionist, burnt out, or stressed like all of us, this episode is for you.

Dr. Anne Welsh is a clinical psychologist, executive coach, fair play facilitator, and consultant. She began her career at Harvard before opening her own practice with a focus on supporting women in all their roles at work and at home. Dr. Welsh is a mother of 4 and draws on her own experience, her research career, and her 15 years in practice to help women feel less alone, more connected to themselves and their values, and more empowered to make their own choices.
