Why am I so tired when I am doing what I love?

Why am I so tired when I am doing what I love?

It’s very confusing. How can we, as coaches, have traded in the dead-end, soulless job to be doing work that we love, serving everyone else’s and our own higher good and still be feeling tired, overwhelmed, teary and sometimes downright homicidal? Over and over I see coaches who are feeling exhausted...

Life Coaching not Life Laundry

I hate it when coaches share the details of their clients’ sessions/conversations/journeys on social media. It doesn’t matter if it's a celebration of progress, a request for help and support or just plain ‘look at what a great coach I am’ sharing – any online exposure of client details* and...

Valentine’s Day Blues

The sight of Valentine’s Day paraphernalia in shops can be a little depressing.  The in-your-faceness of all that enforced romance is hard enough for people who have an ‘other half’ (be that half better, worse or indifferent). But for people who are not-so-happily unattached, all that stuff is...

Email Overload

This blog is helping me to keep track of how I spend my time!  I am somewhat ashamed to admit that, until now, I paid little attention to how I filled my working days. This last week or so of writing this blog has made me realize how much time I spend on admin and, in particular, on emails.  I really...

How We Reject Ourselves

Life Lesson*: what looks like a desire to protect others from hurt is often a fear-based need to protect ourselves from rejection. I have lost count of the times clients have told me that they can’t speak their truth because to do so would mean hurting someone.  And I know that I used to tell myself...

Growing Back in the Hurt Places

I am working with my graphic designer to develop the badge for the adult child coaches I certify to work with my materials. I am excited about what we have so far.  Two starfish on a radiant background. It captures everything about the work that we do, simply and powerfully. If you have read my book...
