While out walking yesterday morning, I caught sight of one solitary curled up leaf, just sitting on the wall. My first thought was how dead it looked. But slowly my attention turned to its beauty just as it is and how its’ life as a dead leaf hasn’t always been this way. Once upon a… Continue reading How will you honour your dead this halloween?
Fantastic. We have another opportunity to talk about Mental Health and the importance of it not only in our workplaces, but in our lives in general. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time now; that if so many of us are ‘affected’ by poor mental health at some time in our lives, could… Continue reading How we can all feel better on World Mental Health Day
Like a new-found love, I keep on wondering when the honeymoon phase will be over. But with a gift that keeps on giving and the depth of love I imagine goes into these beauties, I think this is a love that’s going to last.
Paying attention to our feelings, whether we like them or not, is a massive step towards creating positive mental health in ourselves and in our ‘communities’.

They are renowned for being powerfully intensive events, which were originally designed for actors to… Continue reading How come we feel so much and yet never feel enough?
On Saturday 15 June 2019, I – along with more than 50 other people – took the Leap of Faith challenge and abseiled down the tower of Bath Abbey, England, UK to support http://www.genesistrust.org and the Bath Abbey Footprint Project. https://www.bathabbey.org/footprint. Apprehension mounted as we were gathered together, a group at a time for instruction,… Continue reading I did the Leap of Faith!
That's what I'm telling myself ahead of my abseil tomorrow at Bath Abbey! What I say to myself in my head matters. If I continue to tell myself I am afraid, it is more likely that I will feel afraid. As most of us know, this can be easier said than done! However, as well… Continue reading Fear is just False Evidence Appearing Real
And how easy it is to change... So few people know that the things that keep them stuck can be the ways in which generations of their family have communicated, behaved and related to each other and the outside world. Yes, really. Do you really think that you chose the career you chose because of… Continue reading How Dysfunctional, Generational Patterns Keep us Stuck
