THE ‘GIFT’ OF CHRISTMAS MEMORIES

Through the reflection of my window on a fast moving train, I see in the distance dotted across the countryside bright and flickering lights, making a magical wonderland of an otherwise dark and damp Winter’s evening.

OUR ‘UNREPEATABLE UNIQUENESS’

Over many years in my talks, seminars and workshops in schools, colleges, communities, businesses,organisations, and in one to one consultations, a key theme has been about consciously embracing and celebrating our ‘unrepeatable uniqueness.’ Why has this been such an important area to share insights with others?

MOMENT’S PRESENCE

We live in and are part of a ‘Global Village’ where the flow of information is so fast and furious it can seem some times to be in a free fall and we with it. Global modes of communication across the internet, social media forums and training platforms opens us up to a variety of…

WRITER’S BLOCK UNBLOCKED

It is a great moment when the mist rises from the mind of a writer and heart and soul is once again free to gently create. When words once again come easy and flow from the fingers onto the page with the excitement of being at last released from their place of hiding. An experience…
