I was delighted to have had a book review done on my Winning Strategies Workbook in So Let’s Go Running (issue 66).

Life is a journey. Every little element of life is a journey, from putting the kettle on to make a cup of tea, putting the tea bag in […]

Quiet courage, quiet confidence

This quote from Oriah ‘Mountain Dreamer’ House, a Canadian author and teacher, is much like the ‘quiet confidence’ that I speak to clients about. The quietness that one lives their life can be so much more powerful than a loud, brash, bragging kind of confidence.

When I talk to clients about confidence, I ask them […]

Stretching Your Comfort Zones and Magic

Many of us are quite comfortable without our ‘comfort zones’. We know what we are doing, where we are doing and how to do things. There is more things ‘known’ than ‘unknown’ and with that certainty, all is well. Yet, what happens just outside this comfort zone?

Facing Those Fears … and getting on with it!

Can any of you relate to having fears that you struggled to face? Did you procrastinate, avoid or make excuses to not do it? How many of you can relate to finally doing that scary thing, facing the fear and then wondering why you put it off for so long?

Reframing to help develop emotional resilience

Yet again, I have recently been speaking with several different people about ‘resilience’ and the ability to ‘bounce back’ after setbacks. It seems like there is a trend amongst many different people of different professions and sports who are keen to explore how they can become more resilient.

The ability to bounce back after setbacks […]

Picking up and dusting off those goals!

Sometimes life takes over and with the best will in the world, and with the best of intentions, some people stop taking regular and consistent actions towards their goals. Yet rather than letting things continue to slide, why not stop, review and reflect for a few moments. It seems like it was only yesterday that […]

We kicked off the session […]
