How different abuse can look

2017-02-10T13:10:01+00:00

This is a difficult subject to write about. Sadly, abusive behaviour within relationships is more common than we like to imagine, and it includes both physical and psychological abuse. The bottom line is that abusive behaviour within a relationship is not OK. As human beings we all have the capacity [...]

I was having a rare wander round my connections in LinkedIn and came across a woman who I had not been in touch with for years, but had always rated. I was just in a different place to her.. turns out we're now very much on the same page and I [...]

Father’s Day – The Secret of Appreciation

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

So what is important for dads when it comes to Father's Day? It's easy for it to be reduced to gifts with few words - the classic cards and pressies on the usual masculine themes of sport, beer and gadgets. Refreshing the Parts Beer can't Reach... But what refreshes the parts that beer can't [...]

Mother’s Day – for Mens eyes Only

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

What does 'right' look like? I imagine up there are many men trying to get it right for mother’s day, whether for their own mum or for their partner who's a mum, where the children are too young to do it all themselves. So what does ‘right’ look like? Of [...]

Your Emotional History

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

A while back I spoke about feelings giving important information and feedback about what we personally need and don't need. Here I am going to help you reflect on your emotional history - what has been passed down the generations, what you might have learned about emotion growing up and what this [...]

Coaching is like a Good Book

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

I was touched when a client recently shared that they felt our sessions together were like reading a good book. On exploration it was not any great aha moments or particular chapters, but more the quality of the relationship where they feel heard and responded to, where there is hope and [...]

Are you hating Valentine’s Day or loving it? Maybe it doesn’t feel like something to celebrate for you right now? Perhaps you're single and wondering when you will share in this pleasure, or perhaps you're in a relationship but feel far from a Valentinesque paradise. It’s great to have a [...]

Valuing and Managing our Emotion

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

Feelings are Information It is news to some of my clients that we are always feeling something and in turn that these feelings are important as they give us information and feedback about what we personally need and don't need. Our feelings themselves are neither good or bad, they just tell us different things. It is helpful [...]

What’s YOUR Parenting Bueprint?

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

"I sound just like my mum/dad" With the arrival of a baby comes the arrival of a 'mummy' and a 'daddy'. OK, pretty obvious! However perhaps not so obvious is that these new roles instantly bring new baggage with them. They bring the couples own experience of being parented, or [...]

Ever thought your relationship was over?

2016-07-20T12:05:34+00:00

A while back, Zoo’s Australian magazine were offering one ‘lucky’ man, who was ‘stuck in a busted marriage’, the chance to win a divorce, all expenses paid, with essentials for his new lifestyle thrown in; a top of the range TV, playstation, a cleaner and of course a party to [...]
