Musings on a walk

My morning walks seem to be giving life a holding space where lots of other certainties have gone.

The first thing I realised as I was walking this morning, is that like the politicians, I have prioritised economics over things like sustainability. 

When I had kids I added them to my life so it was work + family. 

Then I had a breakdown so my life equation was then work + family + health/well-being. 

Now COVID-19 has got me thinking I want to add in more; work + family + health/well-being + sustainability + creativity….  Here’s what I was thinking as I recorded the podcast this morning:

I was talking to another friend and we were both acknowledging how fast time seemed to be going even though we are less busy.  As I was sitting in the garden listening to the birds in the sun it came to me that now life is less busy but more full and I like that.

You can watch here on Youtube or listen on a podcast to find out more about what I mean.

I hope this week has found you well.

Life coach, author, podcaster, facilitator, Dr

I am a well-being coach who helps people find their 'thing'; the thing that lights you up and gives you joy and energy. Listen to my podcast; 'What's your thing?' to get inspiration.

I support people to create a less stressed life, to boost their well-being, to ask for what they want and to look after their own needs so that they can hear their heart's call and live a more empowered and meaningful life.

I draw on experience and training in bereavement, domestic abuse, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, Transactional Analysis and other therapeutic approaches.

I have 2 sons who I love loads (and who sometimes drive me crazy). I'm a Barefoot Trained coach and I got a distinction for my post-grad cert in 2011.

I have a PhD which led me to look at Emotional Intelligence in schools and I have a number of academic and professional qualifications in various types of therapy.

I have practiced meditation since I went to India over 30 years ago and I'm a yoga teacher. I have written a couple of books, I teach psychology and work with a large variety of coaching clients.
