Are there some goals in your life that seem possible in principal, but elude you in reality? Do you sometimes delay getting started or distract yourself with busy-ness instead of applying yourself? Do you ever sabotage yourself just as you're about to reach a goal? This "I want it. No I don't," inner conflict is very [...]

I'm about to start working on a project to help women in senior positions in corporate organisations step up their public speaking and visibility to create more impact and lead change. This both excites and terrifies me. It feels like work I was born to do, but it's giving me the collywobbles and making me ask: [...]

“I know it sounds a bit dramatic, but I'm really dreading Christmas.  My family still treat me like I'm a kid.  Worse, I then start acting like one.” Reverting to old behaviours is something most of us can identify with. As adults, we might have ceased behaving in a certain way because we've grown up.  Trouble [...]

A client of mine recently had some news about her health. It's an ongoing situation, which can probably be managed, but might turn out to be serious. She's got quite a bit to process and has to invest time and energy in various activities in support of her short- and long-term health. In this situation, it [...]

Client: “I’ve had a really, really crap week—I’ve been crying almost constantly and I’m exhausted.” Me: “Congratulations! Woohoo! Good job!” At first glance, this probably seems deeply unsympathetic—someone’s been going through a tough time and I’m cheering them on, smiling and laughing. But I meant it when I congratulated this talented business woman. She’d been working on some [...]
