Last week I was with a group of 11 year olds in a ‘Communication Skills for Life’ workshop. We were focusing on a technique we call ‘Doing a Hairy Granny’. It’s a simple three part structure to empower children to have better conversations with adults (hairy or not) in response to those killer questions such […]

Enough of the school-yard vitriol – it’s time to grow up
November 1, 2018 at 7:58 pm
This month I want to rant. But I’m not going to. Because the thing I want to rant about is other people ranting. So that’s not going to work. Several things have happened recently to bring me to this point – all of them symptomatic of a deterioration in public discourse and therefore offensive to […]

So your baby has gone!

September 6, 2018 at 12:36 pm
‘Nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes’ said Benjamin Franklin and indeed HMRC Inheritance Tax (IHT) receipts are at an all-time high, with over £5.3bn for the 2017/2018 year. You may think that IHT is only payable by the rich. However, with the tax threshold (nil rate band ‘NRB’) frozen since […]
Much ado about whales, Kylie the dolphin and introverts
September 2, 2018 at 2:16 pm
I’ve rarely been so excited to write a blog. That’s because I have two amazing things to share with you this month. One’s a book and one’s a sound. I’ve recently been lucky enough to go whale watching, to be in the right place at the right time to see an extraordinary number of humpbacks. Unforgettable […]

July 19, 2018 at 11:05 am
When I changed the title of my LinkedIn profile from Consultant & Recruitment Manager to Career Change Coach, it resulted in quite a bit of anxiety.  A lot of anxiety, in fact.  You see, I had also added my energy healing training and practitioner experience. Yikes! EVERYONE I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH CAN NOW SEE […]

We’ve had a lot of questions lately from parents of secondary school children and graduates, on the subject of resilience: there’s no doubt that this has recently become something of a buzzword. At its simplest, resilience means the ability to recover from setbacks, adapt to change and persist in the face of adversity. Apparently, however, […]
