What to do when you don’t know what to do….

Hello there! It’s been a while since I’ve posted…. apologies for the ‘radio silence’. So, where have I been, what’s been going on and what has that got to do with the topic of this email? …. as usual…. pretty much everything, as most of what I share with you stems from what’s going on in my life and how you can use that in yours 🙂 I think I last emailed round about my ‘big’ birthday back in July. That turned out to be more of a turning point than I expected. Once the day itself had passed it […] Read more »

Have you settled for anything in your life?

Have you settled in any areas of your life without realising it? I’m approaching a big ‘noughty’ birthday in 10 days and it’s bringing up all sorts of thoughts, feelings and emotions for me to process. I’ll share more of this in a couple of weeks but as I reflect on my life so far and what lies ahead, what I still want to achieve, how I want to live my life and who I want to share my life with, I found myself pondering this question: Have I settled in any areas of my life? In other words, have […] Read more »

Can you be friends with your ex?

I’ve been pondering this thought for a while – can you be friends with your ex? Especially immediately after you break up?  I’d love to know what you think!  Here are my thoughts….. For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while you’ll know what has triggered this thought….. I separated from my ex-fiance last August  – triggered by him and his assertion that he needed to be single to carry out his duties as a vicar. I agreed,  as at the time I felt that was the best thing for both of us. But deep […] Read more »

Can anger be positive?

I’ve had cause to re-evaluate my views on anger recently. How do you feel about anger? Do you recognise any of these? it’s always bad it’s bad when I can’t control it I keep it bottled up it’s better to let it out … something else? I’d love to know so please feel free to comment. I’m very aware that until the last few years, since I started on my path of self awareness and self development, that I always viewed anger as bad, even arguments let alone actual anger!  In my early years (when we form our beliefs) I […] Read more »

What we can learn about love from the snow

It’s been a strange old first quarter of the year here in the UK. We’ve just had yet another downpour of snow which has lasted several days – that’s very unusual for us – especially in the Midlands where I am based. I’m a big fan of the power of metaphor to help us understand, process and digest what’s going on in our lives and found my mind coming up with some insights from the snow recently. This is a technique I often use with clients to help them too 🙂 So, I thought I’d share the meanderings of my […] Read more »

How good a (self) mother are you?

How are you fairing this winter?  I’m very aware that many people, especially in the UK, are struggling at the moment. Maybe it’s the dark days – though they are drawing out now. Maybe it’s the cold weather which seems to have been with us forever! Maybe it’s the horrible flu bug which has brought many of us to our knees this winter (I’m still not fully recovered following the resultant ear infection and burst ear drum!). But, even if it is all of these things (and many more besides) what can we do about it? Here in the UK […] Read more »
