You can either enable your mind to work with you, or not!

This post is about how we are helped by our subconscious mind. Now, I'm no brain surgeon, however I know a bit about how the mind works and from experience I can tell you that it really does help you!



So, you've put your keys down somewhere, now you are in a rush and need to leave the house quickly. "Where did I leave my keys?", you ask yourself. You might begin wracking your brain retracing last known appearances and what you did. "Why are…

How to get HUGE return on your coaching investment

Unless you've experienced it already, it can be difficult to justify how coaching works.

Of course the simplicity of having a conversation with a coaching client is underpinned by hours and hours of study and practice to get it to a place where it appears effortless. In the past I've had people who have questioned my fees, saying 'surely you're just talking', er..yeah I am...and there is a method, an acute listening ear and an eye to calibrate what I see.

The conversation can be really powerful, a…

Be at your Best

The majority of the work I do involves working with individuals and groups helping them find ways to be at their best, whether at work or home.

I've found that its essential to understand yourself better and co…

Pressing Pause

We all lead such busy lives these days. Whether its rushing home from work to pick the kids up, dashing off to the gym, squeezing in extra meetings or generally operating at full throttle - we are all guilty and some more than others. I've noticed this more over the last few months and it was especially apparent when I was involved in facilitating a team away day a couple of weeks ago. Typically, when people are asked to take time out of their day jobs to 'get away' and have a 'team strategy day…
