So the debate begins…a little late in coming in my opinion but it’s here and thank goodness for that! It is now estimated that a child takes approximately £300 worth of technology to school daily…crazy right? We were lucky to get a new pencil case unless the old one had a crater of a hole in it. Many schools are aiming to go paperless…that new trend that most local authority offices have been trying to fine tune for almost a decade!  It is not possible because it is not practical…can you imagine people like me who worked in Learning and…

Then, I looked at the guy who was sat three rows behind me with utter disbelief and asked “seriously? That can’t be the case, it would be extremely heartless and totally out of order if that were true” He gave me a bit of a smirk as my question was admission of my finely tuned eaves dropping ability. “Oh ay” he replied in his very strong Geordie accent “I know, that’s why I sent ‘em an email as soon as I realised what the driver had done, it’s to’ally out of order, poor fella hasn’t even got his wallet and…

I don’t believe that there is anyone on the planet that would disagree with the title of this blog.               Not a day goes by when someone doesn’t mention more time or better quality of life.  Yet we also hear ‘life is what you make it ‘ it’s a term that is very familiar and well utilised….so do we actually take this advice or have we stopped hearing it because it’s so familiar…you know, the ‘part of the furniture’ kind of thing?   We all know what is right and what is good for us so I have…

So there we were… On Skype…sorting out a technical issue…it’s always nice to be able to see the person you are engaging with right? Well that was the issue. Once we finished tampering, Catherine and I got down to the business of fine tuning our Well-being event. Both like two exceptionally excited children with more ideas than time!! Does that happen to you too? It’s so easy to get over-enthusiastic about a subject that you are passionate about. We are incredibly passionate about sharing our knowledge, skills and experience to empower others to live full, healthy lives in which they…

In today’s world we seem to be rushing around… doing things that ‘should’ be done and I have found that there are many who don’t make time for their Soul…when I ask them what their Soul Food is, I get a blank look, now 9 times out of 10 this means that they don’t have soul food, the other 1 out of 10 just think I’m a few sandwiches short of a picnic.   It worries me to know… …that there are people out there working really hard doing all the ‘shoulds’ and not doing the ‘wants’ or ‘would love…

So, this is me… …on first impressions people usually see me as a confident and positive person and they are right; I am confident because I am happy with whom I am and I thrive to be positive, always. Those who attend my training or are coached by me have described me as inspirational and interesting, that’s really nice to hear and I feel blessed to know that I am inspiring others by being myself…an ultimate compliment in my opinion. There is so much in each of us… …that others don’t see or know of. I am quite a private…

Elders with attitude! I love people watching, do you do that too sometimes?   You can learn so much by watching others behaviours, interactions ad responses (or non-response). We as human beings are rather fun and interesting to watch and most of us do love watching others and how life situations affect them.   Their reactions and interactions, in some way, provide us with a little comfort…   …that we are ‘normal’ or the we aren’t the ‘only ones’ or sometimes it quietly reassures us that we are doing ‘okay’ and at other times it just makes us grateful or…

“Close your eyes, close your eyes…   …now close em!!” (John Keating) So what do you see? There have been so many occasions when a client informs me that they cannot visualise as they aren’t’ that way inclined. The truth is, everyone is visual to a certain extent, we don’t think or dream in words and numbers, we think and dream in pictures….why don’t you try it right now by thinking back to what you did yesterday. When we recount memories, we actually see them happening in our mind’s eye. Granted, some are better at this than others. Your memory…

Now I have written quite a bit around this topic, but believe it or not, there’s still more that I want to add as this is the make or break of you achieving all that you aspire to. You know, I have been thinking about the terminology of this particular topic and I wonder if like some of my clients you too have a block on the words action plan? If you do, let’s deal with that right away!   What do you want to call the stepping stones to fulfil your goals?  You can call it whatever you like,…

This is a question with many facets  (hmm…I may cover each one over the course of our communications, let’s see how I go). Firstly, who really listens to you when you need a good sturdy sounding board…preferably one that doesn’t interrupt whilst you’re in flow? Are you a good listener for your friends, family, colleagues, team members?   I think you will agree… That everyone needs a good listener at certain times in their life with its ups and downs. So, do you have that particular person who you can count on and turn to? Perhaps, like me you have…
