A.J. Mahari is a Proven Expert on BPD

A.J. Mahari recovered from Borderline Personality Disorder in 1995. She has been online writing articles and sharing her insight and experience about her recovery since 1995 as well. That's a proven track record, unlike any other person who has recovered from BPD working as a life coach.

When it comes to BPD, A.J. Mahari has the unique voice of someone who not only had BPD and recovered 15 years ago, but also of someone who was the adult-child of 2 borderline parents, and subsequent to her recovery from BPD had a relationship with someone with BPD/NPD. Mahari not only knows, first hand, what it feels like and is like to have BPD, to explain that to family members and loved ones.

It is from her 360-degree unique experience with BPD on both sides, and her recovery on both sides of BPD, that Mahari's work generally, and her Life Coaching, even more specifically, that she can and does offer you a more in depth and insightful understanding and compassionate brand of practical help unlike any other life coach, coaching in this area.

Unlike other life coaches who bring experience either from coaching courses, or one side or the other of BPD, A.J. Mahari, with her rich life experience has found that the best coaching course she could have ever invested in turned out to be her own journey thus far in life.

Whether you have BPD or you have a BPD family member or relationship partner (or ex) A.J. Mahari has walked in your shoes. She knows your pain. She understands how to unhook from the traps on the other side of BPD just as she knows what it takes to recover from BPD.

I have been described by many as an expert on Borderline Personality Disorder. What makes me an expert? Well, not University degrees, but real life experience. I am a person who recovered from BPD over 12 years ago now. I also had 2 parents with BPD. I was also in a relationship with someone with BPD (after I had recovered from BPD) - Both of these experiences put me squarely the shoes and experience of what it means to be the loved one of someone with BPD, before, during and after I had Borderline Personality Disorder.

I have been a life coach online since 1999-2000. That's a lot of experience! I also have been online writing articles, ebooks, authoring and speaking in both my audio programs and audio podcasts for 14 years now. I am an expert on BPD, from the inside out. I not only know how those with BPD feel and think from the inside out, but I also know, first hand, what it is like to be on the other side of BPD in the non borderline role. So, I also keenly understand the pain and confusion of the loved one, family member, ex or relationship partner of someone with BPD. I am able to explain, explore, and examine any and all aspects of BPD as it manifests generally and in relationships specifically with the clients I coach. I am an experienced strategizer. I can help you make a plan to cope more effectively than perhaps you are right now.

Borderline Personality Disorder presents many challenges in the lives of those diagnosed with it. There are many ways that Life Coaching can be of support to the journey of recovery. But the coaching relationship is not about the actual recovery it is about supporting the changes that the client with BPD is identifying and in the process of making from hard work in traditional therapy. Life coaching can support the process of present-day efforts to maintain new behaviour and learn to be more consistent with the changes that are goals that have come out of gaining insight and awareness and in therapy.

As a life coach A.J. Mahari has a dynamic, compassionate, creative, and supportive approach. Specifically in her work with those with Borderline Personality Disorder, A.J., as someone who has recovered from BPD, knows from her own first hand experience the obstacles that will present themselves as challenging growth opportunities in the process of change and recovery.



As a life coach I provide a caring, compassionate, safe, confidential, non judgemental, validating and supportive relationship within which clients can feel empowered to explore their present-day needs. I essentially act as a human mirror for my clients. I share with my clients an outside and unbiased perspective as to what I observe in listening to their feelings, experiences, and concerns.
