Who IS Ken Donaldson??
I’ve been counseling, coaching, and teaching since 1987. My credentials: licensed mental health counselor, board certified addictions professional, board certified clinical hypnotherapist, and certified master relationship coach.
(My PR team tells me I should also state that I’ve overcome the perils of addiction, the darkness of depression and the heartbreak of divorce to become one of the “leading authorities on positive mental health, successful relationships and winning the Inside Game of Life”…I think they may have exaggerated it a bit, but I guess that’s why they’re my team!)
I have spoken to numerous companies and organizations on stress management and work-life balance issues. The short list: Allstate Insurance Company, American Marketing Association, General Electric, Magellan Health Services, Mary Kay Cosmetics, National Association of the Remodeling Industry, University of South Florida, University of Tampa and Verizon.
In my book Marry YourSelf First! I share with the readers how to win “the inside game of relationships” by first creating a powerful relationship with yourself.
I was also one of six people who received the 2006 Tampa Bay Health Care Hero Award.
I was recently labeled as “Dr. Phil mixed in with Buddha and Salvador Dali.”
I’m interested and interesting; thoughtful and thought-provoking, and compassionate and understanding of the human condition.
I’ve been on the frontlines and in the trenches with people’s issues and challenges…I have a good pulse of what people want, need, and are struggling with…and I have creative and innovative solutions!!
