Not Playing Small Any More We've all got our own hangups. Every single one of us. Things that we want to do or achieve - but something is holding us back. Being offered things such as a new job, holiday opportunity or even just going to a party.   And yet, we always just say no.   It's not that we don't want to do it.  To have a go.  Meet new people.  Even try a new job that you've always dreamed of.  Or just something new and different. It's because of: 😒Fear of failure😒Fear of success (yes, that really is a thing!)😒Self doubt😒Low self confidence😒Not want to muck it up and look silly And let's be clear, everyone has their own issues.  Nobody is free of doubt and worry - although the issues or thoughts may be different,…

Boundaries In The Workplace

Boundaries In The Workplace

Health & Wellbeing
Boundaries In The Workplace I was recently interviewed by the lovely Katie Charlton from Maximise Health Coaching about boundaries in the workplace. The interview brought up so many issues that myself and others have faced (and still face) in the workplace - particularly in the corporate world. With 3+ decades of Corporate experience, I am acutely aware of the issues faced on a daily basis, and how detremintal they are to our mental and physical health. Boundaries in general are a form of self love and self respect.   They are also some of the hardest things to inplement when you've never done it before.   By setting boundaries in your personal life, you are declaring your wishes regarding: ✔ Who you spend time with✔ What you do for others✔ How much extra that you take on in …

Me, a Writer?

Me, a Writer?

Health & Wellbeing
Me, a Writer? If you’d ever told me I’d be a writer, I’d likely have laughed.   Mind you, in my corporate gig I’ve written for an audience for decades. Many, many credit applications with beautifully crafted stories. Interesting how everything in our lives takes us one step closer to our destiny.   Never did I imagine that I’d be up early on a Sunday morning (who am I kidding, I’m up early every morning ) to submit an article. Never.   This morning I submitted the first article of my 12 month stint with Sibella Publications. One article a month for the next year.   My theme for the 12 months? Authenticity. More particularly, discovering and stepping into your authentic self   The first month is all about simplicity.…

I Have All Of The Time In The World

Health & Wellbeing
I have All Of The Time In The World I have all the time in the world. That's the mantra that I repeat quietly to myself on those days when chaos reigns. After a few minutes, my mind calms down and I realise that everything is ok. Having a busy mind, being pulled from one thing to another, a million things to do. These are all fear based reactions and they are not healthy. Slow down. Breathe. Focus on one thing at a time. You have all the time in the world. Try it. I promise you will feel amazing - AND knock off that to do list x Image credit:  Aron Visuals on Unsplash

INTER-GENERATIONAL TRAUMA

INTER-GENERATIONAL TRAUMA

Add Your Heading Text Here Add Your Heading Text Here Inter-Generational Trauma INTER-GENERATIONAL TRAUMA What is Inter-Generational Trauma? Have you ever heard of intergenerational  trauma?  Until I became a Psych-K® practitioner I'd not really thought about it.  Now, I can see that it is effecting pretty much everyone - in one way or another. If we don't have the opportunity to heal from our traumatic experience, we may unknowingly pass them down to our ancestors through epigenetics.  Our behaviour will also assist with ensuring that the effects continue through generations. What does that mean exactly?  It will be different for every person. For example, my father was born in Germany in 1942.  From conception to his birth, he was living in a very uncertain and dangerous time.  His early childhood…
