How do you talk to yourself? In those conversations you have in your head, the ones you don’t share out-loud. The ones where you tell yourself what you’re capable of and how amazing you are. Or perhaps where you use the kind of language that keeps you small, filled with self-doubt and that is keeping …

Have a (gentle) word with your imposter

Almost all of us will experience imposter syndrome at some time in our lives; whether it’s at school, socializing in large groups, speaking in front of our peers or doing the daily tasks of running a business partnership, it will strike at some point with a voice in our head telling us we don’t deserve …

I’m not good at change – and other myths we tell ourselves

Coping with change can feel challenging. It can feel scary and uncomfortable. Especially when that change is not in our control or feels imposed.

My body and me, a love/hate relationship

my body’s been through a tough time. It’s lived with ehlers danlos syndrome all it’s life, causing dislocations in every joint from hips to fingers, tears in skin from the bottoms of feet to gums, pain from ankles to neck and complications including a ruptured womb and recurrently dislocating neck. In recent years, it’s also …

If the hat fits

When I launched my first business venture in my late 30’s, I wanted to be the best International Event Manager in my field. I wanted to run superb, memorable events that people were clamouring to attend. I was clear about the hat I wanted to wear; I knew it fitted and suited me and that …
