Six years ago on Wednesday, Mr P and I had our first date – here’s the story of how we met

SQUEEEE! This week my soul-sister Meg published her first novel. It’s ‘a modern heroine’s journey with a dose of sacred magic’. Get your copy of Unfurl.

tales from the coaching couch ~ worrier to warrior

Today’s episode came out of a fascinating conversation on the book o’faces and I’m so grateful to lovely Kerstin for the inspiration.  

For all the well-intentioned hand-wringers out there – today we are talking about worry! In the video I’m revealing the sneaky ways we are seduced by worry and why it can be so hard to stop. I’m also excited to be sharing my brand spanking new coaching tool for how to worry productively and on purpose. Plus there is an extra special bonus tool for anyone who wants to help their kids with their worries.

So grab a pen and paper, download the Worrier to Warrior playbook and hit play!

These practices are intended to help you work it through on your own – but you can’t beat the perspective of someone who has eagle magnet eyes (totally a thing) for your crappy thoughts! So if you’d like some help, I have five coaching slots available to spend 90 minutes untangling the stickiest of worries (this is the only way to work with me one-to-one as I am happily booked out until the Summer).

ps: the book mentioned in the video is: ‘Sitting still like a frog: mindfulness exercises for kids (and their parents)’ by Eline Snel.

Please share your results! Did anything surprise you? What do you do when you are worried?

tickling my fancy #1

I’ve been curating The Definitive List of Awesome for a few years now and perhaps because its finally Proper Spring here in Londontown, I’m inspired to start a new series on what’s tickling my fancy this week. Enjoy! ‘36 Arguments for the Existence of God’ by Rebecca Goldstein: smart, funny, original. Wish I’d known Kira Sabin […]

what i learnt in the fishbowl

Usually when I’m coaching, one of the furs will be asleep on the sofa behind me, or on the desk in front of me. They have a slightly disinterested attitude: as long as the room is warm and the possibility for ear-scratches exists, they’ll sit through anything. On Saturday afternoon though, I coached ‘in the […]

calling bullshit on multi-tasking

Since I got home from my California Travellytrip, I’ve felt (to quote my Gran) as if my day consisted of me pushing butter uphill with a red hot poker. Thus: Wake up to Radio 4 grumpy arguments and news of worldwide woe. Make coffee and eggs. Check email while breakfasting in front of the computer. […]

sacred responsibility: confessions of flakey mcflakster

I’m pretty good at flaking. Usually just after the initial excitement of the Awesome New Thing wears off. I tend to flake as soon as I move out of that unconscious incompetence phase (where I don’t know what I don’t know), and I realise that Awesome New Thing requires my attention and energy. It feels […]

the wisdom of the spiral

the wisdom of the spiral

On Saturday afternoon, I walked my first labyrinth. A group of us were expertly shepherded through the process by Chris Brandt, an infinitely compassionate Master Coach who also designs and creates labyrinths, and uses labyrinths as a form of walking meditation. The labyrinth is a beautiful metaphor – to release, receive, and return.  As you begin […]
