24 - People pleasing

Making yourself out to be someone you are not is never a good idea. People pleasing is something that so many of us struggle with. Trying to keep everyone else happy, make sure they think you are a 'good mum', 'good wife', 'good friend', 'good boss' or 'good employee'. If you worry about what other people will think or find yourself putting everyone else’s needs above yours this episode is for you. I talk about people pleasing, how to identify if you are one, how to change this and protect...

I have always been a planner. But throughout the last year I took it to another level and the results speak for themselves.

22 - Why your dreams matter

Everyone has an inner desire for more, to grow, to learn, to contribute. I truly believe this. What happens is we get stuck in fear of the uncertainty that comes with change and we pretend we don’t. This week I talk about my belief that we are all designed to grow and to find the courage to step out into the wilderness that is real life. Are you ready to take this work to the next level, to study and apply it in your life? Your Life Designed is my monthly coaching program where I show you...


21 - Indecision

This week on the podcast I am talking about indecision. I truly believe indecision is one of the biggest killers of our dreams. Being decisive is a skill you can develop and master.

20 - Special edition: My very human life

This week on the podcast a special edition where I share with you some of my own personal coaching, my January experience and how I stumble and fail and what I make it mean. So often we can think that the whole point of life is to be perfect. That what we should be striving for in how we work, parent, engage with others and in our health is perfection. But what is perfection? Does it even exist? What does perfection do to self-compassion? And how does this idea keep us from our true...


19 - The thing you want to stop wanting so much

This week on the podcast I share with you my story about why, and how, I stopped drinking. Well over a year ago I stopped drinking. This at the time seemed like the hardest thing to do. I was not an alcoholic, but like so many of us I lived in a culture and community where drinking was just want you did. Only alcoholics didn’t drink right?! But I wanted to not want it. I wanted to sleep better, work better, parent better, connect better and I knew deep down that those two glasses of wine...

17 - Resisting what is

This week on the podcast I talk about how you can let go of what you cannot control and open up the space and time you need to ask the questions that really matter. We spend so much time and energy thinking and talking about what we have no control over. Whinging about our relationships, jobs, kids, family, lives. Gossiping and creating drama in our lives. This is exhausting. It can be confronting to see just how much time you do waste in this space! But the good news is that you have a...

12 - Failing Consciously v Failing Un-consciously

This week on the podcast I talk about the one thing that causes us to fail: allowing our fear of failure to be a reason to do nothing.

8 - Can You Count on You?

If you want to be on the field with the high performers you must take self-care seriously. This week on the podcast I am talking about my version of self-care, and it’s not what you think! Optimal wellbeing is key to high performance, to thriving in all areas of your life, and self-care is the foundation of this. Your external world is a reflection of your internal world.
