Last year Bill and I decided to have a different year in 2015. Most folk choose ‘ a year in Provence’ or some such sunny place to spend a year out but for us we chose Findhorn, a place we know and visit in the north of Scotland.  Despite knowing the place, it was quite […]

  The very ordinary – Last month I struggled with the thought of a newsletter – what to say, so much else to do, low energy levels due to erratic sleep patterns and eventually I gave myself permission to ‘miss’. I let go of ‘should’ and ‘ought to’ – what a relief! So what if every […]

So here am I, this excellent coach who can help someone face and overcome a challenge, realise a dream, learn to trust and access his or her own inner strength, dance with life …. and this week I got it all wrong!
