the truth About Self-Love 

May 18, 2020
We are often told that we should love ourselves and give ourselves some love. Yet sadly, explanations of why this is so fundamental are thin on the ground and so too therefore are the suggestions of how we can love ourselves, what this will add to our lives and most importantly – how we inevitably benefit exponentially if we choose to.  First up let’s remove the “should”. Tell someone they “should” do something and watch how quickly they turn in the other direction instantly drained by the drudging despair of “should”. What I’d like to offer you instead is a choice because that’s really what true self-love is; a choice.… Continue reading...

April 14, 2020
Are you having a Shi**y Day (SD)? If so then I am sorry because SD’s do by definition suck. But here are a few important things I want you to know. You are not alone. If you respond to your SD with a growth mindset you will come out stronger than before and more consciously aware of how to live to your full potential. By fully diving into the tough emotions you will learn more about yourself and not only recover quicker than if you bypass the challenges and emotions but you will reach new heights with the knew knowledge and perspective you have gained.… Continue reading...

the wizardry of routine

April 7, 2020
Do you have a daily routine? If so, do you keep to it? And whether you do or you don’t (have one) do you fully understand the benefits of having one? I didn’t. Well at least not fully. For so long I’d heard countless masterminds credit routine as the root of their successes. Tim Ferris – an American entrepreneur, author, and podcaster – even wrote a book “Tools for Titans” about his optimal tried and tested five-step morning routine. Mornings matter to Ferriss because “if you win the morning, you win the day,” he writes. And he’s not wrong. However, contrary to Ferris’s research and book writing I’d just previously (before becoming an executive transformational coach) cherry-picked some of the best habits I thought would benefit me and my day.… Continue reading...

the life-changing magic of expansive thinking and believing in a better future

March 31, 2020
It was the first major knock in my life that truly taught me how to handle life’s challenges with an open mind, a hunger for a better future and a positive outlook and I’ve been continuing to develop these skills ever since. The first deep pain I experienced showed me how to be resilient, patient, understanding, accepting, compassionate and how to broaden my perspective and seek out the opportunities to grow. This first hit was a god awful time but it made me realise that to live life to the full and to reach your full potential you have to think and adapt your behaviour to get the best outcome.… Continue reading...

Why the gift of a Life Coach is the best present you can get this Christmas

December 3, 2019
We live in a time where the health and wellness industry is worth an astounding $4.2trillion (£3.5trillion), a colossal figure that reflects the scale of our desire to be well. Yet paradoxically and tragically mental health afflictions have never been so high. At any one time, a sixth of the population in England aged 16 to 64 have a mental health problem, according to statistics body NHS Digital. Whether it is family or friends, neighbours or work colleagues, the chances are high that we all know someone who is affected. And bearing in mind this figure leaves out less common conditions, this is only half the story.… Continue reading...

The Godmother of Real Human Connection

November 25, 2019
As you’ll know if you’ve read the “About Me” section I am a huge Brené Brown fan. Brené’s research work on courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy shot into the mainstream after her infamous Ted Talk on The Power of Vulnerability. And this is how I had the fine fortune of discovering her too. She’s since done another Ted Talk on shame and she’s also the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead. I recommend you read them ALL! Reading and watching the wisdom that comes from Godmother BB (as I affectionally refer to her) always leaves me feeling positive, powerful and much the wiser.… Continue reading...

Beach Retreat: A slow weekend in Cornwall

September 26, 2019
If you want to skip my memories of Cornwall (I can get a little carried away sometimes) and scroll straight to inspo for a nourishing and wholesome Cornish weekend please go right to paragraph 4! Above images curtesy of Visit Cornwall It can be easy to forgo Cornwall in favour of a firmer promise of sunshine from warmer climes but if you take a chance on Cornwall it will be in your heart forever. From as far back as I can remember and even before then every Summer since I was born started with the family trip to Rock – a village in North Cornwall on the north-eastern bank of the River Camel.… Continue reading...

My first Half Marathon Trail Race

September 25, 2019
September 1st was a fantastic first for me. Sensational bright sunshine and vibrant blue skies set the scene for my first half trail marathon at the majestic Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds. I’d not specifically trained for a trail half and I wondered whether it would be the right choice (there was a 10k route option too) but having just come back from running epic trails in Whistler I felt prepared to give this half  Tough Runner (“it’s called tough for a reason” so we were told at the start line!) a try. And WOW! I am so glad I did!… Continue reading...
