Do you ever feel like you’re juggling a million and one things and you’re petrified that something might fall. That’s how I’m feeling today, a little overwhelmed if I’m honest. In truth it’s not because I haven’t had the time – well at least not this week. I’ve had the time, I’ve just been caught up in a time of fear. A fear of moving forward, a fear of change and I guess you could say a fear of the unknown.

What’s worse is that I recognised this in myself and I know that the best way for me to combat this feeling is to look at my ‘limiting beliefs’ and overwrite them. I haven’t been as proactive as I should have and started re-writing them earlier this week – I am however doing that now.

London to…….

Just sat on the train from London to…..the destination isn’t really important what is, is the journey. So this morning as I began my journey on the DLR, I was reminded that beauty can be found everywhere we look and that there is always a story to be told…

First Post by Mobile

Is it just me or does time just disappear?

For this week’s post I thought I’d see if I’d be able to post directly from my mobile phone. The pros- that’s easy, I spend so much time travelling to and from work that, this would be a brilliant way to keep up with posting each week. I tend to also always have my phone on me.

Drawbacks? Small screen and thumb typing.

Parent Coaching

Parent Coaching – I can hearing you asking the questions already….what is that, what does it entail and do parents really need coaching?

These were certainly some of the questions that I was asking myself as I made the trek to north London and beyond, well only to Buckinghamshire. Only a trek because of the number of trains I needed to take to get me there. Anyway I stray from the point of todays post: Parent Coaching. 

So I’m sat in a room with a number of coaches and trainee coaches, we’re all excited to be together and interested in learning something new. I will admit that although I was interested in learning something new, I didn’t really envision myself holding parenting workshops or targeting parents specifically as I work predominately with young people aged 12-16.

London Tube Strikes

2010-10-04T14-29-46 -- DSC_0012Photo from www.CGPGrey.com

Okay so the tube strikes in London are going to be at the forefront of today’s blog, admittedly a short one as I’m typing while on the bus and I get motion sick…possibly not a good idea. 

My trip to work and back took me just under 4 hours yesterday. I’m currently only at London Bridge, the journey there was reasonable, waiting for a bus…… was ridiculous! First it took over 20 minutes for one to arrive and then after that, we had to wait another 15mins for a bus that was accepting more passengers.

Living in the NOW

It feels like ages since I’ve written and shared my thoughts with you. I’m in a really good place at the moment, extremely relaxed and looking forward to the challenges of next week. I’m sat with a group of great friends in one of the most amazing places that I’ve ever visited, Natural Mystic is one of the new villas at Mount Edge. So beautiful and peaceful, set in the Blue Mountain Range of Jamaica.

Finally made that jump…


San San, Port Antonio in Jamaica...wouldn't it be great to coach on the beach!

San San, Port Antonio in Jamaica…wouldn’t it be great to coach on the beach!

It’s amazing how much can happen or change within a few days. On Friday, I handed in my official notice…I thought I would be more apprehensive, more worried about not having a job to go to in September. I know that’s a long time away – time seems to move quicker the older I get. Do you find that?

So the plan is to begin ‘Coaching’ in my own Practice by September the latest. I’ve been working on the website again and hopefully that will be up and running very soon. So stay tuned, I let you know where you can find me. Continue reading
