Living with a liar.

When you think about your ideal relationship would it be with someone who lies? Tells false hoods? Flaunts the truth? Speaks only in stories? Someone who never gives straight answers to a question? I would be surprised if that were your ideal. And yet how many of us have been or are in relationships like…

What IS possible right now?

The positive thinking movement gained a great deal of momentum in the 50’s due to the release of Norman Vincent Peale’s book The Power of Positive Thinking; A Practical Guide to Mastering the Problems of Everyday Living. Whilst self help information and books have been around in various guises over millennia, (the Bible being cited…

Let’s talk about STRESS baby!

“Change is the only constant in life. One’s ability to adapt to those changes will determine your success in life.” – Benjamin Franklin. It’s true, but the thinking mind doesn’t like this. It likes certainty. It wants things to stay the same. But they don’t. Sometimes these changes happen because we choose them, like resigning…

Do you like to play hide and seek?

Have you ever had one of those days where being under the duvet seems like the best place to be? Not because you are poorly. Not because you are genuinely tired. But because you want to hide. You want to hide from ‘stuff’, as it seems too difficult or hard to face. So rather than…

It’s Time to Get Ugly!

You may know that I like dancing. In fact, I LOVE dancing. Not the learn a routine, classically trained dancing. Just me and the music, cutting loose and throwing some shapes. It’s like my body craves to move that way and apparently it has done even before I could walk. I will often be dancing…

How many times during the day to you hit pause?

Wherever you are right now, pause. In fact stop. It’s not forever. Just for now. . . . . . How many times do you do that during the year? It seems as if the years are going by faster, and maybe they are. But when we are only focused on the future, tomorrow, or…

Are you choosing convenience over consciousness?

A deep question to start the blog with. It came from a discussion I was having with a friend. We were talking about the convenience of the life we have access to; food, TV, internet, social media etc. And how, if we were not thinking consciously, we could be swept along with the convenience that…

This is me.

It wasn’t long after qualifying as a coach that I specialised on the topic of confidence. Many clients in my newly established business wanted more of it, to build it or have it not disappear at key moments in their lives. It didn’t matter if they were focused on their personal or professional life, they…

What if self care – all round self care – was the norm?

I was sat the other Saturday talking about self care with Adam Ant. OK, I was at a fancy dress party and said Adam Ant was a 16 year old girl!  (FYI I was dressed as Tom Cruise circa 1986 Top Gun) It was not the situation where I expected to be discussing this topic!…
