What do you need today?

What kind of things bother you today, or most days? What kind of things would you like to work through? How much difference would it make if you truly believed that you could be confident, calm and really happy with who you are right now? I’m asking these questions because at some point, in all Coaching conversations and personal development journeys, the attention is focused on self-belief, confidence and finding…

We are not our thoughts.

Here’s a helpful reminder, which is also good news: We are not our thoughts. Hoorah! And whilst there are many elements of day to day life that are fixed, and that we can’t influence, our thoughts are not fixed …. and, with effort and focus, we can keep them in check!

Living a truly contented life, one which allows you to ‘be you’ (without second guessing every decision) means living in alignment with your ‘core values’. We can manage our daily decisions and navigate our life in the right direction if we are using our values as our…

Coaching Circles 2021 and beyond

After last year’s successful face-to-face Coaching Circles I am looking to restart this project and adapt the idea to an online format, not ideal I know, but in a bid to keep us connected it feels like the right thing to do.  I do a lot of 1:1 coaching and do group coaching several times a year in the ‘workplace’ environment and it really strikes me that there isn’t anything similar…
