  • Workplace Stress: How to Look After Your People

    This week (14 May – 20 May) is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is stress – and how we are coping with it. We all have mental health – it moves up and down on a spectrum and is affected by a range of factors both in our personal lives and in our professional lives. 1 in 6 workers is dealin...

  • How To Make The Right Decision

    Decision making is intrinsically linked to our emotions. They create a physical response to information – and we may not even realise. For example, if you slam on the brakes as a car pulls out right in front of you, you have acted without conscious thought. Our subconscious mind has recognised the d...

  • Coaching Beyond the Borders

    Earlier this year I was once again asked to join the team at Beyond Consultants and deliver on the NHS England Personal Development Coaching Programme.
