Have you thought about your skincare routine recently? Is it the same as it was twelve months ago? Six months ago? If so, it's time for a change. We can all become complacent with our skincare rituals. It's easy to not see what's happening and to continue on the same path without making any changes. Laziness is partly to blame as is lack of believe that anything actually works. We've been marketed to, sold faux miracle treatments and sometimes even damaged our skin in the pursuit of younger-looking skin. Thought this we've spent a fortune in the process. I'm the age [...]

I made a big mistake yesterday. I was distracted, busy and should have known better.It's not something I'm proud of, but it might help you if I tell you about it.It was one of those mistakes that you know the moment that you’ve made it and it wasn’t going to be good.Here's the story.If you know anything about me, you’ve noticed I'm curious one and love learning new things. A lot fascinates me and I read widely and (at least think) I have a good understanding of what my capabilities.Well yesterday while in the kitchen I got myself into a predicament [...]
"Going Grey" isn't for the faint-hearted. For several years I had asked my hairdresser if I could go grey. His answer was usually "no" citing he didn't feel I had enough grey for it to look good. However, I persisted. I was tired of coloring and felt that it was time. Two years ago, without telling a soul, I started the transition. I had devised a plan that I though would be make my transition nearly unnoticeable to others. So, I kept my secret until it was nearly over. For the most part, I've kept this process quiet. However, [...]
A couple of days ago I heard that a young mum had been diagnosed with "the" virus. How? She went shopping for food for her young family. You might say, "what's the problem? She's young." Well, she is immunocompromised. It's serious. I have a neighbour. He's a wonderful and very gentle and not very old human bean. Every morning he walks past my front fence to collect a coffee for both himself and his wife. It gives him a reason to be out and about. (until now) He looks fit and healthy and very handsome. He has Motor Neurone [...]
I don't have to tell you that we're going through an unusual time right now. And though everyone else is talking COVID-19 as I am not an expert in that area, you won't hear me saying much about it. However, as an allied health practitioner and coach, I believe in being practical and in using evidence-based strategies to better support us. And I can talk about these, as that is something I do know about. For everything else, I find an expert in that area to help me. I feel that doing anything else isn't helpful. I do believe in [...]

Are you that “someone” who has all the best intentions in the world… and then you immediately “swing into action” without much planning? After a couple of weeks, those best intentions begin to slide. "Life" get’s in the way. Before you know it, the old ways creep back? Or you didn't even bother in the first place? After all, it's never worked before so why should it work now? Have you ever wondered why this happens? Old patterns, giving in to other’s “needs and wants”, are often easier than intentionally putting yourself first, aren’t they? Tell me [...]
I attended a couple of talks last weekend, given by a very unusual and successful woman. She looks the same as you or me. Shee speaks the same language. And she says that shee is no different from you or me. She says that he isn’t special in any way. And that she even has no special talents. I met an extraordinarily accomplished woman recently. She looked like you and me. Inside, she is very different though. She has been able to do something that many of us haven’t been able to do. She has [...]
Have you ever spent time dreaming about something, then thought to yourself that you are "dreaming"? In your wildest imagination, you can’t possibly have whatever it is. It’s way beyond your ability or affordability or life circumstances? And then, you settle for something less. How does that make you feel? Instead, would you like to know a deceptively simple exercise or two where you can create more of the things you want to create? It will seem so easy that you will think to yourself, it can’t possibly work. (love that) Are you willing to give it a go? [...]
So many of my clients don’t know what they want. And Deborah, was no different. Deborah left our call, torn. She had a decision to make. The problem was, that she couldn’t see what she wanted her perfect life to look like. All she had was a vague sense of unease and that feeling that she wanted something different. And that’s a good thing. Knowing what we don’t want, is as important as knowing what you do want. And your fabulous life, is just that. It’s for you. No one else. Your fabulous life will look very [...]
