Meet Stevie Wright

Today we’d like to introduce you to Stevie Wright.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started my personal development Journey about three years ago. Back then, I was working a dead end retail job, eating take out a few nights a week, hating my body and totally playing small. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and I just felt really stuck. I found myself comparing myself to everyone and never feeling good in my skin. This all came from an unworthiness wound I have. I’ve struggled with it my whole life. Throughout my adolescence and young adulthood, I found myself constantly playing small, being scared to speak my truth, and not feeling good enough. I’ve been singing since I was a little girl, so I was loud and over the top most of the time…but really it was just a cover up to disguise my feelings of inadequacy. I felt like the only way to receive love from others was through performing and putting on a show. I had the need for validation and love from others because well…I didn’t love myself. That belief stayed with me for years. I put on the façade of always being happy and positive, and that my life was perfectly put together.

But on the inside, I was struggling. I got the message from a young age that in order to be worthy, I had to hustle, achieve, do, perform, accomplish, prove myself and be perfect. As an adult that translated into nothing EVER being good enough. I was so hard on myself and I could never give myself a break. I turned to food to numb my emotions and was constantly dieting and working out to (again) prove my worth. I hated my body. I couldn’t eat anything without feeling guilty about it. I was never present, I looked for love and validation in men, I had crippling anxiety and I just didn’t love myself. There was one night where I was literally wrist deep in an ice cream carton watching Netflix, numbing my emotions where I had to ask myself, “is this really all I’m capable of?” The answer was a resounding NO. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I knew that something had to change. I first found healing work through health and fitness. I knew my first step was to start giving my body some love and attention. I needed to heal the damage years of crappy food and binging had done to my body. Through this process, I found health coaching! I’ve always been good at listening and motivating the people around me and at the time, I thought, I can merge wellness with helping others! BAZINGA! I got certified as a health coach in 2016. It was during my journey of becoming a health coach that I realized that nothing had, and nothing will ever fire me up quite like coaching does. I realized that mentorship was my calling and is what I was put on Earth to do.

My clients were seeing results, they were losing weight and making changes…but I knew I wanted to go deeper with them. I realized that true change – change that lasts with you a lifetime – comes from getting to the root of the issue. It comes from getting to the core wound of unworthiness. It comes from uncovering the negative beliefs you have about yourself, where they came from and transcending them. HOLY SHIT! This was gold! I had ZERO interest in helping women lose 10 pounds or get abs. I wanted to help them heal their hearts so that the anxiety, body hatred, and feelings of unworthiness healed itself. I got certified as a Self Love Coach and now help women heal their anxiety. It was in doing this work on myself that I healed so much of my own inner pain and wounding and was able to take a hard look at my own relationship with myself. I came out the other side more confident than ever before and really OWNING my power as a woman and as a coach. One of the biggest things I’ve learned throughout my healing journey is that my power is in my pain. The more I can feel into my shadow and anxiety, the easier I can transcend it. My belief is that we HAVE to feel. We HAVE to allow our emotions to come up. It’s the only way to transform. The work I do on myself and with my clients now is truly fulfilling and I love witnessing women transform!

Stevie Wright Coaching – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m a Self Love Coach! I help millennial women heal their anxiety, own their power, and step into self love and freedom. I’m known for helping people break out of negative patterns, heal old wounds, up level belief systems and no longer use external things (food, social media, TV, alcohol, sex etc) as a drug so that they can step into self-love. I think what sets me apart is that I’m going to the root of the issue. Behaviors won’t change until your beliefs change. Why? Because the body needs consistency. You’re not lazy! You’re not un-motivated! You just have disempowering beliefs that lead to the same negative patters. My belief is that all tension, anxiety, stress, self-loathing, and overwhelm starts with disconnection. I help people understand that their bodies are a safe place to be and that they can come home to themselves!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
ABSOLUTELY! Los Angeles is a hub for lifestyle, wellness, and life coaches. If you’re just starting out, I think LA is a great place to be because so many people need our help and see the importance in investing in their transformation.
