Winning Strategies … Practicing what I Preach!

As I walked down to the start of the swim and saw the gigantic orange fireball of a sun rising on the horizon, I knew I was in for a very special day! I have to admit that it did bring tears to my eyes of being so grateful for so many things in my […]

Measures of Success

I frequently talk to clients about defining their own measures of success and I have recently been reflecting on my own measures. In the past month, I have experienced two house moves and this is a part of the reason why I haven’t been writing any blog posts (time to make the move and settle […]

What next … after race day?

I am very pleased to say that I completed the Nice Half Marathon yesterday in a very respectful time of 1h57m which for me is a big deal! I worked hard, trained well and even worked with a coach to get that little bit extra from myself.

It was a big deal for me because […]

Race day … what’s the big deal?

Yesterday and today seems to be race day for many people. Lots of friends in Brighton did the Brighton marathon, some new friends did the Cannes International Triathlon (one coming in 18th place!) while others are doing the Boston Marathon today.

I moved into the flat in Villefranche (east of Nice) on Saturday where I will be renting for the next four […]

Small steps to reach a big goal

As I sit here now on 1st January 2016 in Nice (France), I am pondering what the year will be like for me, what goals I will pursue and how my life will be like. I have several goals (yet to be actually written down and that will be later today or tomorrow! ) however […]

Coaching article on Healthista website

I was delighted to have been contacted by Caroline Phillips, an award-winning journalist who has written about health for publications from the Evening Standard to Telegraph, from the Express to The Times, for some coaching.

Caroline initially said she wanted help with a goal of writing a book. We covered so much more than just […]

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 […]
