Interview with Ella McCrystal (@ellamccrystal)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I was sexually abused by my father & wanted to help survivors of abuse. This eventually led me to the career path I’m now on.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

I’ve been asked to do a Ted talk & I get to coach elite athletes and work with Leaders in their fields 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

I’d say always priorities time for health (especially brain health). Meditation, Exercise, time with friends & family & time for creativity – all help to achieve balance.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My team at my clinic have been essential to my success. But a real mentor has been my GREAT friend, Scott Mckenzie – he showed me how to take my thinking to another level & really believe that there are no limits in terms of success. Scott is a New Yorker and has that New York Mentality which is so attractive to me. I’m a small town, UK girl, but he got me & in terms of business he’s my guiding star!

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

My job & my businesses are about educating, coaching & helping others. I give a lot of my time to others for free (as well as giving away mental health resources for free). I’m also the founder of The Evolve Project. It’s a community project that helps raise awareness & money for a local domestic abuse refuge.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of my Father (my mother chose to stay with him – I now completely estranged from them both), I always say use Pain to propel yourself to a higher level – Rise Above!
