MEET Chris Chickering

Chris Chickering’s remarkable resumé straddles the worlds of business, entertainment and personal development. He is a licensed psychotherapist, award-winning musician and successful entrepreneur who has dedicated his life to helping people and organizations fulfill their highest calling through coaching, training, empowering music and inspirational speaking.

As a psychotherapist and coach, Chris is passionately devoted to helping clients realize their best selves. He holds an MA in Counseling Psychology from Southwestern College, and is a certified neuro-linguistic programming practitioner and hypnotherapist. 

Chris is also a natural entertainer who connects with audiences worldwide. His signature presentation, a “keynote concert,” blends inspirational music with motivational storytelling. He also presents innovative programs and workshops for organizations seeking to achieve their most audacious goals. 

Chris’ music has been licensed for use by Deepak Chopra and he has opened for Michael Franti & Spearhead at the Santa Fe Yoga Festival.  Under his non-profit label, Music for Positive Change, Chris has released six studio albums inspiring listeners to create lives of greater joy and fulfillment. His debut album, Shine, dropped in 2012. Subsequent releases include Living in the Now (2013), The Resurrection of Me (2014), The Better Side (2015), Regeneration (2015) and The Hero’s Journey (2017). Most of the albums were produced and co-written by Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated composer Greg Barnhill (Tim McGraw, Chicago) with engineering overseen by Greg Bieck (Hall & Oats, Train) and Mills Logan (Toby Keith, Taylor Swift). Chris’ music can be heard on streaming platforms such as Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music and is available for purchase through all major distributors and Chris’s official website.

As an entrepreneur, Chris founded Guru Authority, a marketing agency dedicated to helping some of the world’s most renowned speakers, authors and content creators bring their messages to the world.  Since 2007, he has secured highly profitable online joint venture partnerships and strategic alliances for over 100 companies – ultimately generating tens of millions in additional revenues for a notable roster of clients. 

Away from his professional life, Chris can be found improving his own well-being. He is an avid fitness enthusiast, a sleight-of-hand magician and enjoys hiking with his dog Chili in the mountains of Santa Fe, New Mexico.


Personal Statement:
“I’ve picked myself off the ground more times than I can remember. I stay on track by focusing on things I can control like putting in the work, getting off the bench and into the arena of life — as opposed to focusing on things I can’t control, like what others think or how things will ultimately turnout. I keep the train moving forward by breaking challenges into the smallest possible steps, do my best and strive to always remember: the joy is in the journey.”
