In the vast landscape of literature and psychology, there are individuals who, with their dedication and passion, inspire and empower those around them. Martha Idalia Parra Guerrero, a distinguished Clinical Psychologist and renowned author, is one such inspiring example. In this interview, we will explore more about Martha’s journey, her focus on personal growth and female empowerment, and how she has impacted the lives of many through her works and presence in various media.

Hello, Martha! It’s a pleasure to have you here for this interview. You are a prominent Clinical Psychologist and author of several books that have touched the lives of many women. How did you discover your passion for psychology and writing?

Hello! Thank you for having me here. My passion for psychology and writing developed throughout my life. From a young age, I had a deep interest in understanding and helping people, which led me to study Psychology. On the other hand, writing has always been a form of expression for me. It was during a personal difficult time, going through a marital breakup, that I discovered the power of writing as a healing and transformative tool. From there, I combined my knowledge in psychology with my literary talent to offer a unique approach to personal growth and empowerment in my books.

Your first book, «Hoy elijo despertar» («Today I Choose to Awaken»), was conceived during a moment of personal adversity. How did you connect with the women who read your story, and how do you believe your writings have empowered them?

«Hoy elijo despertar» was born as a form of personal healing, but I quickly realized that many women identified with my story. Sharing my experiences and reflections allowed other women to find comfort and strength in knowing they were not alone in their challenges. My goal has always been to convey a message of empowerment and personal growth through my writings, and it’s gratifying to see how they have positively impacted the lives of many women, inspiring them to take control of their own paths.

In addition to your books, you are the editorial director and owner of Revista Imperante (Imperante Magazine). How did this initiative come about, and how does it reflect your vision of female empowerment?

Revista Imperante was an opportunity to expand my vision of female empowerment and bring it to a broader audience. The magazine addresses a variety of topics of general interest, but always with a focus on empowerment and personal growth. Through the writings, videos, and life experiences shared in the magazine, I aim to inspire and motivate women to believe in themselves and reach their full potential.

You received the prestigious «Galardón Mujer líder 2022» (Woman Leader Award 2022). How has this recognition influenced your career, and what does it mean to you?

The «Galardón Mujer líder 2022» was an honor and recognition of my professional trajectory and contribution to literary culture. This recognition not only fills me with gratitude but also drives me to continue doing what I love: empowering and helping women through my work. It means a lot to me because it validates the effort and dedication I have put into my work and motivates me to keep growing and achieving new goals.

You have ventured into different media, collaborating on radio and television and recently starting your own podcast. How have these media outlets allowed you to expand your message and reach a wider audience?

The media have provided me with the opportunity to reach a wider audience and spread my message of empowerment. Collaborating on radio and television has allowed me to share my knowledge and experiences with diverse audiences. Recently, I started my own podcast, «Platicando con Martha Idalia» («Chatting with Martha Idalia»), where I invite experts from different fields and discuss topics of general interest. Through these media outlets, I can inspire and provide a source of reflection to a broader audience, without geographical barriers.

In addition to your books and media work, you provide therapy and personal growth training. What is your main focus in these areas, and how does it feel to directly impact people’s lives?

My main focus in therapy and personal growth training is to promote emotional well-being and help people reach their full potential. Through my knowledge in psychology and my personal experience, I provide tools and strategies for individuals to overcome their challenges and grow in all aspects of their lives. It is incredibly fulfilling to directly impact people’s lives and witness their transformation and empowerment.

You have had the opportunity to present your books at renowned literary events. How has this experience been, and what does it mean to you to share your works in these spaces?

Presenting my books at literary events has been an enriching and meaningful experience. These events have allowed me to connect with passionate readers, share my works and message with a diverse audience, and establish connections with other writers and professionals in the literary world. It’s a special moment to share my works and see how they impact people’s lives, while also inspiring me to continue writing and sharing my voice.

Martha, you are a brave and determined woman who has turned personal challenges into a platform to help others. What are your next projects and goals to achieve?

My main goal is to continue expanding my work of empowerment and personal growth. I will continue writing and publishing books that inspire and motivate women. Additionally, I have plans to launch new online workshops and training to reach more people and continue providing emotional growth tools. I also want to continue collaborating in different media outlets and expand my presence in the podcasting field. In short, my goal is to keep doing what I love and reach more people with a message of empowerment and transformation.

Martha, it has been a pleasure talking to you and learning more about your inspiring journey. We wish you much success in all your future projects. Thank you for your time!

Thank you very much for this interview. It has been a pleasure to share my story and projects. I appreciate the opportunity and hope that my work continues to positively impact people’s lives. Greetings to all!
