Life is your creation

Posted on

I recently wrote a post about working with your future self.  The task was to help you think about life without any of the day to day symptoms that you might feel (anxiety, bored, overwhelmed, stressed out, procrastinating).  Part of the exercise was to start identifying how that future you was different to you today.

Posted on

I’ve been busy back at work over the last week now that the kids are finally back and school and well (whoop whoop) .  There’s a real recurring theme with my clients around failure – and a sense of failure when we haven’t achieved perceived perfection.  We give ourselves such a hard time around failure.
