A shortcut to taking your power back

Last week, I began to share with you about what happens when you place power outside of yourself by blaming others for what you are feeling – and how that never gets you want you actually want. If you missed it, you can watch the video here.

In this week’s video, I would like to offer you a very

What is happening when you are reactive?

Much of the coaching work that I do centres around conflict within families. When it comes to communication, this area of our life can often be fraught with anger, resentment, hurt, guilt and the list goes on…

Here’s the video (and for those

Are you appreciating yourself?

I’ve just finished my final 5-day NVC Retreat for the year. As always, it was filled with wonderful moments and people accessing even deeper authenticity. And when the retreat finished and the busy-ness stopped, what I noticed within myself was a tendency to want to keep going. To keep doing more. To stay busy. When what I actually needed

It all started with a cup of tea

I have written before about the magic of only saying ‘yes’ to others’ requests from a place of genuine joy and giving. Here’s the post if you missed it. What I haven’t yet talked about is the importance of making those requests in the first place.

I was reminded of how important this is just the other day whilst staying
