Coach Tom Godfrey

The power of you
by Tom Godfrey

I believe that every one of us is unique.

The exact combination of traits which make up your character, the precise balance of your hopes and fears.

Your experiences, your memories, your story.


Coach Sandra Lynch

What is mastery?
by Sandra Lynch

It’s someone who lives by a unique process and has the desire to continually learn, discover growth and develop into the best they can be. Core Energy coaching at iPEC examines who you ideally want to be, how you want to live, and what you want from your life, and helps you devise a plan to achieve that which you desire.


Coach Helen Gray

Plan for the future, live in the present.
by Helen Gray

January, the time of year we get bombarded with new year resolutions and goals. Whilst I am a firm believer in goal setting, what most people overlook is long term vision. You probably heard the phrase 'over estimate what can be done in a day, under estimate what can be accomplished in a year, a decade',

Throughout childhood our path is usually mapped out, primary school, secondary school, college, university, stable job, find a partner, settle down, own a house etc.


Coach Phoebus Apostolidis

Moving past self-sabotage
by Phoebus Apostolidis

One of my biggest problems in life has been putting the effort to grow and progress and then find myself back to where I started. In layman's terms I was self sabotaging, upper limiting.

It took me years and lots of failures to figure things out.


Coach Wayne Trevor

New Year, New You? Don't Be Daft
by Wayne Trevor

Happy New Year 2022!

The closing of one year, and the start of another is a natural place for people to pause, to reflect and to think about what lies ahead. We consider if we're happy, what changes we might like to make in our lives and sometimes we make new year resolutions- eat less, exercise more, get a new job and so on.


Coach Caroline Jeffrey

What do you Love ?
by Caroline Jeffrey

It's a total yes to fast cars and bring on the even faster motorbikes, fashion, titles, jobs, social status , and in my case a desire to be an everlasting perfect dress size 10.

That’s the ego looking outside of ourselves for happiness and fulfilment.


Coach Reece Wood

I wish you a merry Christmas?
by Reece Wood

Christmas and New year holidays have come around again and wow I just got over the last one. Really tell me it is not true. Sorry, it is rushing upon us.

Are you someone that dislikes or has bad memories of Christmas?
Are you someone who gets stressed or anxious around this time whether emotionally or financially?

You are not alone, and many people share these sentiments with many studies indicating about a third of people have issues with the holidays.


Coach Phoebus Apostolidis

Are you the victim of your own thoughts?
by Phoebus Apostolidis

Our thoughts are constantly at play in the background. They often dictate the way we experience the world and ourselves.

Are you buying too much into what your thoughts are telling you?

Listening and being aware of our thoughts is a great skill to build on.


Coach Katie Tsangaris

HOW TO PRACTICE MAINTAINING A HAPPY LIFE
by Katie Tsangaris

We all strive for happiness and joy in our lives and most of us look for happiness outside of ourselves.

External situations and life events bring us happiness, joy and enrich our lives.


Coach Sandra Lynch

Life offers neither problems nor challenges only opportunities
by Sandra Lynch

To label something a ‘problem’ is to invent a disheartening rule, as from a different lens those same conditions are considered as an opportunity to discover growth, on this remarkable expedition- we call life.


Coach Ian  Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

The Guest House
by Ian Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

The Guest House
?
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
?
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.


Coach Sandra Lynch

Energy Leadership - What????
by Sandra Lynch

If life is a prefect adventure, a game that cannot be won or lost only played - how do you play?

I am losing ???

I win so therefore you must lose ???

I win, and hopefully you win, too ???

You win ???

We all win or we don’t play ???

We always win ???

Winning and losing are illusions ???

With self-awareness and the ability to understand the world around you, you can have anything you want!

Choosing how you perceive your life, how you show up and how by changing or managing your outlooks, you could enjoy this game more; create opportunities, choice and freedom.


Coach Helen Gray

Why do I recommend twelve weeks for one to one coaching?
by Helen Gray

In working with clients I commonly encourage lifestyle changes and natural remedies in addition to our sessions.

I also know it is very difficult to change your habits, you commit to significant mental energy to become the best version of yourself.


Coach Suzy Malhotra

How I moved on from Cancer
by Suzy Malhotra

Using Kintsugi as a metaphor for healing ourselves and embracing our own flaws and imperfections teaches us an important lesson: Sometimes in the process of repairing things that have broken, we actually create something that is even more unique, resilient and beautiful.


Coach Ian  Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

Body image is a complex!
by Ian Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

Body image is a complex and multifaceted construct in which attention is given to how the body looks in terms of shape and weight.

Construct?........

Intelligence, motivation, anxiety, and fear are all examples of constructs.


Coach Ian  Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

Body Shaming!
by Ian Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

Can we talk about how a lot of internalised fatphobia/skinnyphobia starts at home or amongst our communities?

So many parents, friends, lovers, colleages are guilty of shaming their loved ones.


Coach Sandra Lynch

SHAME: Ordeal or Opportunity?
by Sandra Lynch

Shame “an intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging “Berne Brown, Researcher, University of Houston

It is the awkward and conscious nausea that instantly happens when you feel trapped by a situation, alone, helpless with no options.


Coach Helen Gray

'Age' is not the issue.
by Helen Gray

I was told in my twenties weight gain would start.

I was told in my thirties, having three children would make me overweight with a hanging stomach.

We are constantly told what to expect as we age and how life experiences will dictate our physical health.


Coach Phoebus Apostolidis

But what if I fail?
by Phoebus Apostolidis

Fear of failure is real. It gets in the way of the things that we want to do.

The problem with it is that we often are not even aware that it is keeping us back. We just have this discomfort, this anxiety that builds around the very thing we are craving to do.


Coach Ian  Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

Separation #1: Worth From Appearance
by Ian Richards-Thomas (He/Him)

“This Body itself is Emptiness
and Emptiness itself is this Body.
This Body is not other than Emptiness
and Emptiness is not other than this Body.
The same is true of Feelings,
Perceptions, Mental Formations,
and Consciousness.
