How to Stay Sane in a World Gone Mad: 6 Ideas to Help You Stay Hopeful

How to Stay Sane in a World Gone Mad: 6 Ideas to Help You Stay Hopeful

I have started avoiding the news – in any and all forms. Things are so bad out there that it all feels too overwhelming. And, still, the horrors manage to filter through my defenses. Everywhere there is justified outrage about our incompetent-at-best and pathological-at-worst leaders, horror at...

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

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.

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”...

Express Yourself

Burnout is a horrible, debilitating condition that we need to understand better so we can manage and prevent it better. Not just the physical manifestations of it, but the thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that give rise to it. I am often asked why people get burnout. There are countless factors that...

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...

There’s a Lot of Good in All of Us

Thoughtful, generous, creative, resilient and dependable. These are some of the qualities of adult children that we don’t pay so much attention to. Because we ‘judge ourselves without mercy’ we tend to look for the negative – the bits that we want to change. But there is so much that is positive...

Resilience You are more resilient than you think you are. We all are. I use a starfish (or a sea star as I prefer to call them) as my coaching logo because of their resilience; when they lose an arm, the grow a new one it the old one’s place. Every one of us has responded to the challenges...

How Can I Help YOU?

I am constantly amazed and inspired humans - we are all so different, and yet so similar. I work with clients from all walks of life and from all over the world.  Each client has a unique story – a set of circumstances, life events, opportunities, hardships - that belongs to them alone.  Even...

Pick Yourself Up

I am a little preoccupied with the notion of burnout at the moment. Possibly because so many of my clients seem to be in its grip. Possibly because I see a direct correlation between being an adult child and being prone to burnout. Possibly because I seem to be flirting with burnout again. Probably...

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...
