Poly-cultural multipotentiality

We are all particular in our plurality

I always felt wrong.

 

I haven’t gone up the ladder of promotion,

the uni-linear path to success and approval.

I don’t have ‘a thing’.

If you ask me what I do,

I don’t know where to start.

If you ask me about my relationships,

I don’t know how to answer.

 

I never know

which bits to choose,

what to put in,

what to leave out.

 

People want a simple answer;

What me to tell them,

reassuringly,

I am a teacher

a mother

a coach.

 

A noun.

 

Fixed.

 

Static.

 

Defined.

 

I think I am more verb.

 

You see,

I have skittered,

rambled,

explored,

nosed,

poked,

meandered,

dabbled,

dreamed,

scrabbled,

bled,

cried,

danced,

laughed,

loved,

hated,

sniffed,

immersed,

pruned,

seeded,

mixed,

died back,

sprung up,

transplanted,

uprooted,

planted,

mulched,

woven,

imagined,

pollinated,

investigated.

 

I am more patchwork polyculture,

multi-potentialite, wild, hedgerow edges,

than mono-cultural field,

 

Thank you Jon Lydon for another great photo.

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.
