Self

Let's explore what makes us tick and how we present ourselves to the world.

How To Heal From The Pain Of Betrayal

We've all been betrayed by someone at sometime or other, and we've usually had little understanding of the real reasons for it. All we knew was that it really hurt, and brought with it shock, confusion, deep sadness and disappointment.

Small acts of kindness- whats in it for you?

I have recently come across two significant days which i was only vaguely aware of in the past. September 21st is peace one day- a day of global'cease fire and non-violence' (god knows we need more of them). Today of course is kindness UK day, and we need more of these too. Of course it helps to have specific days to raise awareness and embrace these values but what happens when we incorporate them into every day activities?

Memories Of Kindness

We've all experienced being at either the receiving end or the giving end of acts of kindness. World Kindness day reminds us of how rewarding and impactive even the smallest acts of kindness can be. Kindness is a rare and original human gift. Let's celebrate it.

14 Lies We Self-Administer

We make up stories, seemingly innocuous little fibs, to keep ourselves stuck and out of action. Sometimes we're not even aware that we're doing it. I'm wrestling with number 2. Which lie(s) resonate with YOU?

Who Can You Take At Face Value? Appearances Are Deceptive!

I'm sure we've all made mistakes when it comes to 'sussing out' other people and their motives...and perhaps these mistakes have cost us dearly. We are inherently wired up to make a quick decision about a friend or foe at first sight – because our very survival in primitive times could have depended upon this snap decision – to fight or run away!

Is The Workplace Any Place For Your Inner Child?

We all have a hidden part of our psyche/mind which is called our Inner Child. He or she lives deep inside us and is the echo of who we once were as a child. It carries our beliefs about ourselves and it directs our sub-conscious behaviour – about 90% of the time – at home, on our travels and of course at work.

Is Your Inner Child Taking Over The Nest?

The relationship we have with our parents and caretakers is the most important emotional and psychological connection we will build - and it determines how we see ourselves and what we believe we deserve in life. You may aim to be a kind and loving parent, but there could be one child you've been neglecting to your detriment...your Inner Child.

The 9 doubts that most of us keep private

Each of us might be directing our own life’s stageplay, with different settings and characters and plots – but are we really all that different underneath it? Despite our uniqueness, many of us graze at the same smorgasbord of doubts and uncertainties and, because we’re often indulging in these in private, it can seem as though we’re quite alone. Here are nine ‘secret’ insecurities that I come across in my coaching conversations with clients often. These aren’t special. They’re not unique. They’re run-of-the-mill to the point of epidemic, and I’ve felt several of them too.

Making and Breaking Habits: The Power of Practice

​Sometimes wisdom provides great advice of how to behave or think and our soul softens at the possibility of its truth. Despite our best intentions, there can be a wide gap between our current reality and the rose tinted one we strive towards. How do we get to the place where this wisdom becomes our experienced truth? In short, it is practice, patience and commitment to the journey.

Get happy from the outside in

How many times have you heard about getting happy from the inside out? The promise of this kind of happiness is much deeper, sweeter, stable and authentic than external rewards. However, there is a way to get this deep sense of wellbeing from the outside in…

Are Your Self-Files Corrupted?

Too many of us live our lives based upon faulty programmed information which we've psychologically downloaded in our early years, and have since been using as the template for all of our activities and interactions.

Mummy Tummy? I don't think so!

I am sick of hearing the term 'mummy tummy' bandied about by the press, not a day goes by without seeing some celebrity being judged by their shape and size. They used this cringe inducing name 'mummy tummy' as if using a cutesy term negates from the fact they are shaming women for their body shape and propagating ideals of negative body image for women.
