Trusting yourself

Trusting yourself in a noisy world.

It can be really hard to trust yourself (your inner knowing, your intuition), in a world that is literally a SEA of noise and opinions. As I personally move through a period of my life that is filled with change and transformation, my mantra lately has had to be (by sheer necessity!), I trust myself. I keep having to come...

Is having it all coming at a cost

Is ‘having it all’ coming at a cost?

Do you always feel like you have too many ‘things’ on the go, too many places to be, and too many responsibilities and commitments to fulfil (many of them not even essential)? Do you often feel resentment at the amount of things on your ‘life plate’? If so, I invite you to consider this: Is trying to ‘have it all’ coming at a cost to your health,...

Stop bending yourself backwards

Is it time to stop bending yourself backwards, for everyone but yourself?

Are you struggling with overwhelming stress, and hormonal imbalances? I lived with female hormonal imbalances and an overactive stress response for years, before I ever learnt what was actually going on in my body. And discovered that the way I was feeling, was, in fact, so far from the way my body is actually designed to feel. I am so...

Life is too short

Life is too short for dilly-dallying.

Have you ever (finally) taken a leap of faith, or made a long-awaited change, or done something you thought was a little ‘radical’ … and then wished you’d done it SO much sooner? The thing with humans is … Most of us know when we want to (or NEED to) make change …. but we can get stuck when we...

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...

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?

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?? Every woman I work with tells me this is how she is feeling. I watch women in my personal life feel like this. I even feel like this a good...
