I'm launching a card deck!

We all want to live our best happy life, right? But how?

It took me YEARS to work out what it would take for me to be happy, contented and live a fabulous life without breaking the bank, damaging relationships or being selfish.  I speak to so many people (women in particular), who are busy, stressed and hardly make time for themselves, heck, I was one of them!!
These cards take all the faffing and indecision out of your hands with helpful affirmations, daily rituals, strategies for success and …

Stop bloomin' faffing!

Do you have a never ending 'To Do', list? Have you heard yourself saying things like "I'll do it tomorrow", when deep down you know that you'll probably put it off again?

Are you just feeling overwhelmed by everything that needs to be achieved?

We are all guilty of procrastinating from time to time, however it can become a real problem if tomorrow never comes and your list of things to do just keeps growing.



So, the big question...how do you begin to overcome this?

Well, the first thing is to ac…

Choosing the right development option

So you are looking for someone to work with to help you achieve success in your life? 

How can you make sure that whatever funds you invest in will give you the maximum return in the shortest possible space of time? Read on...

Investing in yourself, whether it be with time, money, energy or all of the above if something we should all take very seriously. Indeed, in my experience it is much easier to make recommendations to others about what they should or could do, rather than looking at ourselv…

New Year - Same Me...?

I'm seeing a lot in my industry right now (and it's the same each year), about new year - new me...nailing those resolutions...etc. The beginning of a new year is always busy in the coaching space, people have those "something has to change" moment's on the cusp of the year rolling over and are suddenly spurred into taking action.

I love supporting those people, they are seizing the moment and ready for change - my perfect client! But what I don't love, is when I see a whole load of fluff about n…

Can't see the wood for the trees

Can't see the wood for the trees?  That was literally me this morning! You see...our neighbours had these very tall and bushy trees, which, while they were lovely to look at, except for the diseased bit, it created a lot of mess in the garden and also felt kinda intrusive.

It's exactly what happens when your mind is full. Full of stuff that you need to think about, do or you're holding onto worries about. Those things that you're carrying on your shoulders and you're feeling weighed down by. You …

Comfort or challenge?

How much do you know about your comfort zone? It's this magical area which surrounds you, keeps you safe, comfortable, happy and confident. When we are doing what feels comfortable, life (or work) seems easy, you don't have to think about it too much.

Just quickly, I'd like you to try this simple little exercise - humour me..  Pick up a pen and a bit of paper, and sign your name. Now switch hands and do the same. 

For most people, the second attempt felt more awkward, uncomfortable and probably lo…

I’m not perfect

I'm not perfect. No one is. No matter how things look on social media🤳 no one lives a glossy life 100% of the time.

I have battles with my own mind; I make excuses and try to call them reasons in order to justify why I'm not doing something. I've learned to notice this and tackle it (mostly) before it takes hold and to understand what's really behind it. When I say I haven't got time...is it because its not a big enough priority for me right now or is it genuinely that I have used up all my avail…

3 things I'm doing right now that you can do ANYTIME!

🌟3 things I'm doing right now🌟 (in between resting, chilling, and still eating leftovers) Reflecting on my previous years achievements, expressing gratitude and planning the forthcoming year...read on...

1. Reflecting on the years achievements It's really easy to skip on through life either completely in the moment or living for the next thing. Each year I spend some time, (about 15-30 minutes spread out over a few hours or days), to reflect on what my achievements have been. Highlights for me th…

That last push

If you're struggling to find the energy for that last push whether it’s on a Friday, or any day of the week, try one or more of these:

💭Change perspective - sit somewhere different, face a different way or even better stand up if that's possible 📻Get some tunes on - fire up your brain with some music, I love the big classical stuff or anything with a good beat 🏞️Head out into nature - get some fresh air, even if its standing on your doorstep! 💟Breathe - take some lovely slow deep breaths, relax y…

From Resistance to Persistence

We all experience resistance from time to time, whether in the work environment, in your business or at home.

Resistance is natural, its the brains way of saying "woah there, something feels different, time for me to step in and protect you!" Of course the brain is right to do that, if something feels risky or unsafe, its important to notice and acknowledge the message before forging on regardless!

There are soooo many reasons why people express resistance, and sometimes its overt, sometimes cover…
