  1. Reflecting on your use of coping strategies

    Reflecting on your use of coping strategies
    What does coping mean? I often hear in my coaching sessions from my clients that they are coping. I always think about what the word coping means to them. I think some people may not even know or realise they are using coping strategies/mechanisms, the word coping is very subjective. Believe it or not, there are between 400- 600 strategies...
  2. Reflection in your work role

    Reflection in your work role
    I recently did a journal for teachers to reflect on their work role. How many of us do this, reflect on our work? I wrote the journal looking at reflection from a teacher's role, what their experiences of the day were and how could they change areas for the next time. That made me think that people still have not...
  3. What would you least like others to know about you.

    What would you least like others to know about you.
    When you look at yourself, really look at yourself a good question to ask is “What I don’t want to write about” This is a beneficial exercise to do as a coach. To recognise some areas in yourself, you would least like your client to know about. It is a really strange feeling to admit your faults, but as a...
  4. Shame, we all carry it but never talk about it.

    Shame, we all carry it but never talk about it.
    Shame is a word that people prefer not to pay attention to; people prefer to keep it hidden. The problem is that it becomes much more powerful, staying silent. The first question “What is shame to you”? Once you establish this you then need to ask yourself where does this come from, whose voices do you hear when shame creeps...
  5. Are you stuck in life?

    Are you stuck in life?
    Do you find yourself stuck in life? One of those questions you sometimes have to ask yourself as you face the day to day routine with no change. Some of us like this, the majority don’t, so why is this? Ask yourself the question what would you like to be different? Look at three areas in your life, career, life...
  6. How confident are you after lockdown?

    How confident are you after lockdown?
    There is so much hype about the slow release of lockdown, I felt myself asking what does this look like for you? I know what it looks like for me but what about you? We all interpret situations in different ways, our world is based on our own fear. Some people live physical fear, some of us live with fear...
  7. Why writing journals are fantastic for change.

    Why writing journals are fantastic for change.
    Both Ralph and I both have benefitted from writing journals and know they work and how they work. We advertise journaling on all our courses, training, coaching and management courses encouraging everyone to work on something personal to them. Life is all about continuous change and growing yourself to be the best you can be. Due to the COVID-19 weeks...
  8. Low Self-Esteem Is Destructive

    Low Self-Esteem Is Destructive
    I think this is such a vast area that seems to be kept hidden in people’s closets. Lots of people struggle with low self-esteem; it is a hindrance to many. So, what is it? It is a subjective evaluation of your own worth. It creates self-beliefs that hold you back. Low self-esteem affects so many people and creates problems for...
  9. Dealing With Adversity

    Dealing With Adversity
    What an appropriate title for these unprecedented times. What is adversity? What does it mean to all of us individually? There is a cycle that people do fall into the trap off. That is when faced with a tough situation (the adversity) we create a belief (usually negative), then the consequence is negative. You can change that cycle if you...
  10. Self Confidence - an essential key skill

    Self Confidence - an essential key skill
    Confidence is an essential part of life, and if we don't feel confident about undertaking something or indeed optimistic in our abilities, it can cause serious issues.  What is Self Confidence? The three drivers of Self Confidence are 1) Confidence in others, 2) Confidence in one’s own capabilities, and 3) Confidence in life. This is where it all starts; Self Confidence...
