  • Guest Blog by Penny Haslam: Why You Need Confidence Control Pants

    Being called a ‘control freak’ isn’t meant as a compliment, is it? I remember Tony Blair in the 90s being labelled a control freak for wanting to know everything that was going on in government. Personally, I don’t think this is a such a bad thing in a country’s Prime Minister. And of course, too...

  • The Present Moment: Don’t Let The Future Steal Your Present

    We spend a lot of our time either lost in our memories or thinking about the future. Perhaps you’re reliving a happy memory or perhaps you’re remembering that irritating comment your mother-in-law made last weekend.

    #1 Songs to bring some inspiration into 2019 "Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down / By the enemy / Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing / Bow down to the mighty / Don’t run, stop holding your tongue / Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live / Maybe one of the...

  • Are you happy in your job?

    I wonder if you’re happy in the job that you do I was really surprised last week to read that when asked “are you happy in your job?” over half the people in the UK that responded said no and I found that really incredible. Sometimes we think that we’re not very happy but actually, there may b...

  • Two Day Emerging Woman Art & Coaching Course

    A few months ago, a very good friend of mine called me. She insisted that I just had to go on this amazing 2-day “Emerging Woman” art course by gifted artist, Lisa Lochhead. I did momentarily wonder if she had gone mad. “I can’t draw!” I exclaimed. After all, I had known that I was rubbish...

  • Fascinating Fulfilling Fun: Executive Coaching with Sidra Medicine

    This year, October was certainly the month of retreats. Two very different kinds of retreats in two very different countries but both with the same purpose. First up was two weeks life coaching in the Algarve sunshine with To The Sea hosts, Anna and Jodie, and our new vegan chef Laura. It provide...
