My work is different from Other Life Coaches The common definition of a Life Coach is ‘a person employed to help [...]

My personal journey into Confidence

My Personal Journey into Confidence

My Personal Journey into Confidence As a Northants Based Life and Confidence Coach with over 18 years experience,  the author of ‘ The Confidence Coach’   and a regular  wellness expert in the media,  people often generally believe that I was one of those lucky people who was naturally born with bags of confidence!  However,  nothing could be further from the truth!

Coping with rejection

Coping with Rejection

Coping with Rejection Rejection is part of life.  Whenever we reach out to someone, apply for a new job or go on a date, there is always the risk that we may be rejected. So, if rejection is a normal part of life, how can we stop ourselves from feeling pain when rejection happens to us? How do we get better at coping with rejection? It isn’t rejection that matters – it is what we make it mean about ourselves. Case Study 1 Emma [...]

positive momentum

Wake up with Positive Momentum!

Wake up with Positive Momentum Do you wake up grumpy each morning or do you wake up feeling excited about the day ahead? Most of us wake up worrying about the day ahead, focussing on what tasks need to be done or generally worrying about life!   I call this negative momentum as in your negative thoughts have gained momentum.  This momentum then gets bigger and bigger throughout the day creating even more stressful thoughts.  This is the law of attraction [...]

self soothing

Start Self Soothing!

Self Soothing Learning to soothe yourself  with your feelings and thoughts is an important practice both for children and adults.   It helps you  feel more confident, release negative emotions and it  gives relief from fear. It also helps you move downstream from negative emotion, into positive emotion.   The art of self soothing is under rated but it is an important skill I use with my Life Coaching and Confidence Coaching clients. Sadly, most of us were not taught from [...]

The definition of Insanity

The Definition of Insanity

The Definition of Insanity Have you ever heard ‘ the definition of insanity is doing the same things every day and expecting a different result?’ I love this quote and often use it when working with my Life Coaching and Confidence Coaching clients! Where are you living this quote? Think about your life.  Where do you keep complaining about the same thing, people or situations yet do nothing about it? Are you unhappy with your career, relationships, self confidence or finances but keep [...]

Your Personal Bill of Rights

  Your Personal  Bill of Rights One of the neat little tricks that I use to remind myself of the importance of valuing myself and taking care of my own needs is to write down my Personal Bill of Rights. (I first came across this idea through the work of Edmund Bourne, PhD, in his book The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook.) This is a great reminder to myself that I deserve to be a priority in my own life and that I [...]
