Set Your Own Agenda for 2018

Set Your Own Agenda for 2018

If you are anything like many of the people in my immediate orbit, you have found yourself limping towards the end of the year feeling more than a little dazed and confused. How did we get to the end of the year so quickly? And, at the same time, why did it take so long? Why do I feel so tired...

Rebuild Your Resilience to Recover from Burnout

Rebuild Your Resilience to Recover from Burnout

Have you ever found yourself saying, “if one more person asks me to do something I might crack”? Felt as though you are stretched so far that you fear you might snap? Had a to-do list that took on a life of its own, with each item you tick off being replaced by three or four more? All of...

Burnout Makes Us Feel Hapless, Hopeless and Helpless

Burnout Makes Us Feel Hapless, Hopeless and Helpless

We all have moments in our lives when we feel a little at sea and as though we have lost our way. When we feel as though we are bobbing around; isolated, lonely and afraid. When we question many of our life choices: work, love, friendships… Like a boat in a storm. We don’t know where we are going...

Sunday Night Blues

Sunday Night Blues

You’ve had a wonderful holiday. Resting, relaxing and being in the moment. No worrying about the report that is due, the presentation you need to make at the next meeting, the conversation with your hated boss/client/colleague that you have to have. No work worries at all. But, now, the party is...

Think Less, Feel More

Think Less, Feel More

Have you ever had a time when you just knew something you were doing or thinking about doing was a bad idea, but you went ahead and did it anyway? Most of us have. Not just one time, but many times. We talk ourselves into things that we don’t want to do. We tell ourselves that we should do it...

Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Do for Yourself Is Nothing

Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Do for Yourself Is Nothing

You know that feeling of overwhelm? Of having so much to do that you don’t know where to start? Of realising that it is June already, even though it feels like January has just started? That “there’s-too-much-to-do-and-not-enough-time-to-do-it-in-and-I-have-to-do-more-be-more-say-more-earn-more-play-more-love-more-laugh-more-exercise-more-lose-more-weight-eat-fewer-carbs-and-still-be-happy”...

Eight Ways to Regain Control

Eight Ways to Regain Control

Local and global events have been unsettling and even alarming of late. There is so much that is unpredictable, and out of our control. Rather than allowing that which we can’t change to destabilise us, now is the time to turn our attention to what we can influence and control; our own habits, choices...

Nature and Healing

Nature and Healing

My mentors at the Sagefire Institute, Michael and Lynn Trotta, once shared a story with me about the Bushpeople of the Kalahari... They are one of the oldest surviving cultures on the planet, well known for their profound connection to the land and their intimate knowledge of the natural world. ...

You Are Good Enough As You Are

You Are Good Enough As You Are

I work with many clients, from a wide range of backgrounds. Almost all of them share at least some of the characteristics and limiting beliefs of adult children. One of the most common of these is the belief I like to call, “if I were better it would be better.” Growing up, children in chaotic...

Nurture Yourself in Nature

Nurture Yourself in Nature

What is free, easily accessible and good for your health? Depending on who you are and where you live, you may be thinking: oxygen, wifi, water, sex, happiness, laughter… All of which may be true, but the answer I am looking for is: Nature. Albert Einstein (who was, as we know, a genius)...

I am a Renovator, not a Cheerleader

Some people need someone to help them stay motivated and on track to make and meet their goals. They need a Cheerleader to stand in their corner, pick them up when they fall down and cheer them on when they do well. Others need someone to help them dig a little deeper to understand why they are the way...

D is for…

Do and Don't.   We get Do and Don't messages all through our lives.  'Do be careful.  Don't take chances. Do make plans.  Don't get ahead of yourself.' Here - I hope - are some rather more constructive and liberating ones. Don’t: Talk yourself into things you don’t want to. Talk...

Dos and Don’ts

We get ‘do’ and ‘don’t’ messages all our lives.  Starting from when we are babies: “don’t touch that,” “do look before you leap,” “don’t get too big for your boots,” “do respect your elders.” How about if we turned those messages around and told ourselves: “Do touch...
