The Social Media Illusion

  You may have seen my post last week, Going Behind the Scenes and what I learnt about illusion from my time working backstage in theatres. The same can be said about Social Media.

Going Behind the Scenes

  The factory where my mum worked took all the families on an annual pilgrimage to London’s West End. When I was 9 years old, it was to see The Sound of Music. I loved musicals and the theatre. For me it was such a magical place. Full of song, smiles, sparkles and stars. I…

How to make a decision

  I often have discussions with clients about how to make decisions, especially those big, potentially life changing ones. You know, the big – ‘do I stay, do I go’ or ‘is this a yes or no’ type questions. Some people lose sleep over such decisions. Some avoid making them. Others jump in without much…

7 Keys of Confidence ~ Am I doing all I can? (video)

  This video is a short extract from a series, 7 Days of Confidence that I recorded live on Facebook. In fact, it was so ‘live’ that I was in a layby in the Cotswolds. The signal wasn’t great so the video isn’t as clear as I would like but hopefully you can hear the…

7 Keys of Confidence ~ What are you avoiding? (video)

  Do you ever find yourself procrastinating or putting things off? Ever asked yourself why? Procrastination is something that comes up with my clients time and time again. When we know we are putting things off, it blocks our confidence and makes us feel unworthy. But until we really understand how our reasons, excuses or justifications…

7 Keys of Confidence ~ Opening to possibilities

  We live in a culture where clarity and certainty is favoured over ambiguity and vagueness. Sounds innocent enough right? But what if that need for certainty was a block to your confidence? What if instead it created rigidity and limitations that prevent the growth of the feelings you most want? I discovered this for…

Brave and Courageous… Really?

  There have been a number of words used to describe me, in the last four years specifically, that have baffled me. Baffled as to why they were being used towards me, when I believed I was ‘just being me’ and doing what I thought need to be done, even though I may have been…
