Seeking surrender

As we pass the equinox and the season shifts into Autumn I am experiencing a shift too, which I want to share with you today. What I’m going through as the wheel of the year turns feels like the culmination of a process that began two years ago, with my first experience of burnout and adrenal fatigue. In the past…

Are You Waiting for Clarity?

I used to think I need clarity before I could take a move forward with my life or business. Do you recognise that feeling? For years it was the basis of a lot of my work as a coach, too. I’d help my clients get crystal clear about what they wanted, and then I’d support them to bring that vision…

Could this be what is impacting your level of success?

February, frequently dubbed the month of love. If that’s the case, let me ask you a question. Do you love yourself as much as you love your business? When I asked some  friends this question the other day they responded with an indignant “Yes” as if to say, ‘of course I do, why would I not?’ “So then,” I responded,…

Where is the love in your Business?

I’ve spend way too much of my life living in my head. Its a place crammed full of thoughts and sometimes crazy and indifferent ideas. Our society likes to prioritise ideas, for example what’s deemed good or bad,  right or wrong,  true or false,  what we should do and so on. Lives and businesses are built around ideas. Yet, it’s…

You Are Enough

Wherever you look at the moment from blog posts to newsletters from social media to promotions people are talking about ‘Making this year – Your Best Year Yet! Of course it’s January and customarily this is where our attention lies, but why oh why can’t we start to appreciate that we are okay as we are? Don’t get me wrong…
