Run towards, not away September 17, 2014 – Posted in: Personal Development, Uncategorized

I was chatting with a friend the other day whose predicament reminded me of a situation I’d been in as a young woman in my early twenties. Having just split up with my long-term boyfriend I’d decided to take the opportunity of singleness to do some backpacking and see a bit of the world. As you can imagine, it was an amazing year packed to bursting with incredible experiences and wonderful people.

A life without limits September 3, 2014 – Posted in: Confidence, Personal Development

How would you react if I told you we were leaving tomorrow to climb Mount Everest…? Unless you’re an experienced high-altitude climber, I imagine something like the following would run through your mind… “But, I can’t climb mountains!” “But, what about my job?” “But, I don’t have any equipment!” “I’m scared…”

Does that frame need changing…? August 26, 2014 – Posted in: Confidence, Personal Development

Hamlet said, “for there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” As we say goodbye to the summer and anticipate the onset of autumn we have a choice; we can either dread the colder, wetter weather or we can look forward to the leaves changing colour and the excitement of the build up to Christmas. It’s up to you – the end of summer can be a good thing or a…

The 7 [thinking] habits of really unhappy people July 29, 2014 – Posted in: Confidence, Personal Development

In tribute to the late Stephen R Covey and his brilliant book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (which, if you haven’t read I’d really recommend you do), I thought it would be interesting to look at the opposite. So here, from my own (and my clients’ experiences) is my list of the 7 Beliefs (“Thinking Habits”) sure to keep you unfulfilled, unhappy and unsuccessful…

Your best is enough July 15, 2014 – Posted in: Confidence, Personal Development

Your best is enough… The more clients I see, the more I become convinced that we live in a culture where perfectionism is rife and I believe it’s sucking the life out of us. We try to sculpt our bodies into perfectly lean model sizes (unable to enjoy our normal bodies because they’re not “perfect”), we boast on Facebook about our perfect lives on our perfectly groomed summer lawns or in front of our perfectly…

Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy July 10, 2014 – Posted in: Confidence, Personal Development

Karen* came to me last year as she was at a crossroads in her life. She’d fallen into an unfulfilling career after university, and then had her children who were now all at school. Quite tearfully, she explained to me that the thought of returning to her former career filled her with dread but she had no idea what else she could do. She wanted to find her passion in life but didn’t know where…

Nothing stays the same (something else is also true…) January 15, 2014 – Posted in: Confidence, Personal Development

Recently, I met a woman with a story that’s remarkable both for its sorrow and its joy.  She and I were chatting as we helped our little daughters change for their swimming lessons, and she mentioned that she’d previously had another daughter who’d died as an infant.  If that wasn’t enough, her marriage then floundered leaving her both childless and single.  I remarked that she must have been devastated when this had happened to which…

Goal setting – take charge of your life! September 13, 2013 – Posted in: Confidence

Who’s really in charge of your life…? Do you have a goal for your life?  The next five years?  This year? This month?  The most successful people in life are goal orientated – they’ve decided what it is they want and have taken the necessary steps to get there.  These people might be successful in business, or as parents, or in sport or with their health.  Whatever it is they’ve decided they want to achieve…
