Are you a Leader or Victim?

The headline for this blog post isn’t a quote from a great philosophical teacher or a spiritual guru. Nor is it from a 7 figure personal development leader. It’s from a client. It came the day after our coaching session. In an email. He was facing a very difficult personal situation and felt deadlocked into…

‘What has your attention?’

You know, that voice in your head….come on I know it’s not just me that has it! You’d be amazed at just how many people want to deny that it’s even there though. I often ask people in my talks and workshops to raise their hands if they have a voice in their heads, and…

Are you ready for better relationships…with everyone?

Who’d have thought cleaning out old photos could lead to profound insights! I came across photos of my graduation from 1993 (!) and shared them with an ex-boyfriend (now friend).

Believe in yourself. Your life depends on it!

I am not a great fan of reality shows, especially the celebrity ones. Mainly because I spend the first half of the programme googling each of the celeb’s to work out who they are and what talent they have succeeded in to become famous….with some it seems not much, but I digress. A few weeks…

What makes a great place to work or live?

There are countless studies that have been done and probably are being done, on what makes a great work place. Ranging from the physical environment; plants, lighting, ergonomic chairs, acoustics, colours. To the psychology of human relationships, communication and dynamics. And more.  As my specialism is confidence, the focus of this post is how to create…

Harriet’s Story

Harriet and I started working together through an unusual root. She had been offered coaching as part of a collaborative project she was working on. But as often happens when someone is offered coaching as part of work, and as she shares, she wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. Whether she needed it…
