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!…

Have you ever doubted your self doubt?

I wonder what would happen if you did? Doubt and self doubt are frequently topics of conversation on, well I’d say every course that I run; presentations, running effective meetings, guiding your career, the imposter syndrome, leading with belief and of course all the confidence courses. And when doubt does raise it’s head, I ask…

Coaching? Mentoring? Or therapy?

“How do you know whether coaching is the right thing for you?  And how do you find the right coach for you?” Two really great questions posed after a recent keynote. So I thought I would offer my thoughts on the subject today in the blog. Ways for you to know what you need next…

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). He commented on how lovely I looked. And that I was such a funny, positive and confident young woman. Shame I didn’t think that about…

What if there IS magic in patience?

Impatience is not a virtue. Nor is it helpful. In my experience personally and with witnessing its impact on clients, I can see how truly destructive, disempowering and controlling impatience can be. I have just come off a call with a client whose impatient thinking patterns cause her to give up on the goals and…

Are you spiritual?

I never know what to answer to this question, and I am often asked it. “Are you spiritual?” But what does it actually mean? What is the questioner really asking? What do they mean by ‘spiritual’? Recently when asked, and before I could enquire as to what was meant, the questioner continued with a part…

Coaching… from the other side.

Self growth is my number 1 value in both business and life. I hadn’t realised that this wasn’t the norm’ until a close friend stated, in shock ‘This is more than just a business for you isn’t it?” And yes, it is. It is a way of life. I watch, read and listen to great…
