The Need for Love

The Need of Love in difficult situations. How does this work? Love should never have to be a choice. But when it comes to difficult situations like the choice between you, your husband or your children what happens then? Well they cannot take care of themselves, they are apart of you and it’s your job to look after them, you have a duty of care of them because they are not adults, you are the one to make empowered decisions and choices on their behalf. What happens when they grow up? How would that leave your relationship with partner? It is true that your relationship with your children is totally different to the relationship that you have with your partner. That is...

Are You A Bouncing Ball? … Checking In On You!

I have had several people recently tell me in their own unique ways that they felt something like a bouncing ball in life. Trying to juggle work, school, health and family responsibilities can be overwhelming, leaving someone to feel out of balance, disconnected and unfocused. Many of us can get caught up in busy and active lives. We start treading water and just surviving rather than making purposeful choices and actions with ourselves and others. This can be slippery slope in any relationship. I think it’s important to take a quick assessment every few months – check in on your priorities and values and what’s important to you right now. Have you...

Playing full out!

This is a video of the great Maya Plisetskaya dancing the dying Swan. She is 61 here. You see her dancing like this at 61 and you think to yourself: “There’s a woman who plays full out! Who is living life to the fullest! Squeezing the juice out of life!” You are probably imagining her activity filled days, her rehearsals and the rigorous training she still has to undergo to keep her body and her skills at a high performance level. This is someone who clearly pushes her own limits! But here are her own words as she describes working for the first time with Roland Petit, on the production of La Rose Malade: Roland himself rehearsed with me, not trusting the coach....

So what is coaching exactly?

So what is coaching exactly?

What is coaching? Coaching is the practice of supporting, challenging and empowering an individual or group/team through the process of achieving a specific personal or professional result via cutting edge strategies and change techniques. It is distinct from training and mentoring, in that the coach/client relationship is one of trust, accountability and responsiveness. Training is teaching an individual or group how to achieve a result by imparting practical skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies, while mentoring is the process of an expert providing their expertise to less experienced individuals to help them advance their careers, education,...

Why do people unsubscribe or even block you?

It is very easy to take this personally. What did you do? Did you offend them? How can you fix it? Don’t they  like you? You can really beat yourself up over this, But  people are people, they will do what they do best which is take offence, be prejudice and state their opinion. The important thing to remember is Never Take it Personally. They may have issues: Actually we all do but some handle theirs differently to others. Some handle this by excluding instead of including and finding out any needed reasons. Email overload: Messages pile up and sometimes the only way to deal with these is to delete the ones you have no time to read. Facebook is great for this...

The Trust Account

The Trust Account

In many relationships there is an accounting – what you do for me vs what I do for you. Whenever there is a surplus on one side, there is often a deficit on the other. The play of relationship will then be to get these sides into equilibrium. Along the way, there may be unhappiness, arguments, stone-walling, or even worse, a state of complete indifference. How did we get to this? In every relationship there is also a Trust Account. At the beginning of most passionate relationships the Trust Account will be full. But over time – sometimes a short time and sometimes a very long time – this account will become eroded and the sign of this erosion will hit...
