Boundaries

Boundaries can be safe, healthy, and necessary.

Do you feel fear when you know, intuitively, you need to (gently) enforce a boundary? Oftentimes, we can be scared to set the boundaries that we know (deep down) we need to set … because we don’t want to come across as mean. Or unkind. But, truly, there is ALWAYS a kind way to set a boundary. Boundaries don’t have...

In defence of myself

In defence of myself.

(Please, can we just be kind to each other??). More and more, on the social medias, I get accused of being a ‘selfish millennial’ trying to ‘make a buck’ on my beliefs which are ‘unfounded and helping no one’. Or versions of that.  (That rant in particular was one of the most interesting I have received thus far, and I...

Trust

Are you floating in trust, or drowning in angst?

How easy (or not!) do you find it to drop into trust?  Recently I said to a client who is going through an incredibly difficult time, and sitting with a lot of angst, ⠀ ‘If you don’t want to sit in angst, you’ve got to learn to trust’. ⠀ Because, this is what I deeply believe: When we are sitting...

17 reasons why modern women are struggling so much

17 reasons why modern women are struggling so much – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Modern women are struggling – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  In a world where we have more opportunities than ever before, modern women seem to be drowning under the weight of everything we have on our ‘life plates’ – landing us in a space of pain, hormonal disharmony, exhaustion, and disconnection.  So, why is it like this? I wrote a list...

Get out of your head, and into your heart

Get out of your head, and into your heart.

Overwhelm.  For those of us who struggle with it consistently (aka, feeling like you are seriously drowning within your own life), getting out of the mind-space – and into the heart-space – can be a serious challenge. Overwhelm is an insidious ‘ruiner’ of one’s day-to-day experience of life – and I barely know a woman who doesn’t tell me that this is...

Honouring yourself ... even when it's really hard

Honouring yourself … even when it’s really hard.

If you are conflict-averse (like I used to be), you may find yourself often suppressing your true needs. The thing about learning to honour yourself, is this: You must do the thing that scares you. Most of us wonderful women are kind of SCARED to honour ourselves – because honouring ourselves often means conflict. Truly honouring ourselves can often mean:...

Are you tired of being over-needed?

/ Over-committed ⠀ / Over-needed⠀ / Over-available ⠀ ⠀ / Under-slept⠀ / Under-rested ⠀ / Under-nourished ⠀ ⠀ ^^^^ the state of so, so many modern women. Can you relate??

Allow your rock bottom moments to transform you

Allow your rock bottom moments to transform you.

I’ve had my fair share of rock bottom moments over the years, and I know that you have, too.  Everyone has! The ones that (literally) bring you to your knees, that make you feel as though your spirit is shattered in a million pieces. If there is one thing I honour so much about each and every person I come...

Boundaries

Boundaries: how I learnt my lessons and finally honoured mine.

Sacred boundaries … do you have them, and do you honour them?  Do you often find yourself feeling resentful when you look at your schedule, and it occurs to you that: a) you’re either doing way too much in general, or, b) you’re committed to things you never wanted to be doing in the first place? Or, do you feel...
