Almost a published author!

In just a few days I'll officially be "a published author"! In a year full of surprises and plans gone astray, this wasn't even a glimmer of an idea at the start. We talk about planning as if having a plan will ensure smooth sailing. If we have a plan, we know when we're on

I’ve been pretty quiet on here lately

I've been pretty quiet on here lately. Lots of things happening in the background. My Dad had more surgery - and recovered well. My daughters had birthdays. I've been a bit up and down, like the weather really! (Variable weather and big seas have meant not quite as much swimming as I'd like.) BUT... Clients

I’m a new person

On the outside, she looks happy, confident, fit and healthy. She’s crushing it in her business. She gets amazing results for her clients and is highly respected in her profession. She’s always got a cheeky remark, a ready smile. She looks like a model. She sat on the chair, eyes flashing as she snapped, “My

I’m not capable of creating a successful business

I'm not capable of creating a successful business. That's what one of my clients said to me last week. She had always been financially provided for - firstly by her father and then by her husband. Last year she got divorced. Money was always an issue growing up. Her parents fought over money and there

Are you being seen?

Can you see the goanna? So often in business, it's easy to cruise along, not rocking the boat, growing slowly and staying almost invisible - just like this goanna! You do all the courses, amassing enough certificates to paper the walls - but they're filed away in a drawer. You might be frightened of speaking

I thought it hadn’t worked

I thought it hadn’t worked. She's on my Fast Freedom 4 week program. We did her in-person session a few weeks ago and she had a major breakthrough on the day. She realised that she was able to let go of everything that had been holding her back from stepping into the career that she

Opening night of Sea Birds

Last night we were movie stars! "Sea Birds", the documentary that was made about my swimming ladies, was shown on the big screen. All dressed up for our "red carpet" moment, we had dinner across the road before going to the cinema. Festive and fabulous - our first group outing since lockdown. Excitement, laughter, friendship

I’m really, really happy!

A couple of weeks ago an exhausted, depressed man contacted me in desperation. His nightmares were getting worse and the panic attacks that followed them were debilitating. He was getting about two hours' sleep a night. He was terribly anxious and also concerned about the excess weight he had gained. This is a man who

Women’s Adventure Film Tour 20/21

Oh my goodness! Our little movie is in 5 film festivals, including this one! We get to see it on the big screen, along with 8 others, next week! How exciting. https://youtu.be/zxPJjSj-Kt8

This morning I got dumped!

This morning I got dumped! Things were relatively flat with not a lot going on. The breeze was icy, straight off the snow on the mountains. The water was pretty cold, but not rough, just a few bigger waves around. One of those ones caught me when I wasn’t paying attention! I was coming out
