Helping you with Anxiety
by Leonie Morris

I Got Anxious Just Reading the Stats! Got Anxious Just Reading the Stats!

I had no idea that nearly 15% of the population, nearly 10 million of us in the UK alone, suffer from anxiety. On the upside, if you are suffering from anxiety, you are not alone! But the truth is, we are struggling to meet peoples' needs, the suffering continues and it's getting worse.

The happy gardener
by Zsofia Pataki

Still wondering how coaching can help? Let me share a lovely tale with you.

"Charlie was an unhappy gardener. His whole life had been dedicated to growing the perfect garden, but each year he found he got the same, dismal results: the flowers died, the grass lost its colour, the weeds took over and the local wildlife stayed away.

How much more could you achieve with a quiet mind?
by Leonie Morris

“A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear”

Ever wondered why we have our ‘eureka’ moments when we least expect them?

In the shower, in a dream, after a peaceful walk?

The information age has brought many great benefits … it has also brought a plague of ‘busy minds’ and ‘fuzzy thinking’.

Even on the bad days ... there is a bright side
by Leonie Morris

Some days don't always look like the best

You wake up with a stiff neck
You have sad conversations
Cross words
You're late
Energy ebbs and everything feels like an up hill struggle
Things just don't go your way

But you know what .

Why do we find saying 'No' ... so hard?
by Leonie Morris


I am a creature of habit. My whole life has been an education in making others happy, in pleasing people ... and mostly that's fine. Making others happy gives me happy thoughts too.

This cycle means I am a 'yes' girl.

I Am You
by Serene Martin

So much of pain exists in this world because of the sense of separation we feel between us and everything else. This one was written to inspire us to feel connected .


I am the taste of coffee on your tongue and the glass which holds it against your lips
I am the rage of the storm and the calm of its eye
I am the blade of the knife and the energy with which it cuts
I am the wetness of raindrops and the burn of cigars
I am the green of the grass and the transparency of air
I am the curve of your smile and the depth of your remorse
I am your friend and the friend of your enemy
I am what I am and I am you.

To Multi-task or Not? That is the Question!
by Christina Michelle

We all have the power to control our circumstances & environment, at least to some extent... Use your power to create a better way to do something.

One month after attending a workshop by Management Consultant Janine McDonald, I decided to test the theory that multi-tasking is in fact NOT the most effective way to accomplish several things in a short period of time.

Because We Can Change
by Serene Martin


This goes out to everyone I love. Because we can change….

When I stopped believing in luck, I was no longer a victim of circumstance

When I started looking for ways to celebrate each day no matter what happened, I was no longer trapped in my past memories

When I tried to transform the anger and fear I carried in my heart to acceptance and love, I began to breathe more easily

When I chose to eat clean, my body began to heal itself

When I followed my heart, making the right decisions came easily to me

When I accepted that everyone is on their own path no matter how much I may disagree with them, my own path lit up more clearly for me beneath my feet

When I gave up dwelling on things I could not change, more things started changing for me

When I chose to believe that all the right resources will show up for me when I needed them, they did

When I released the things that I no longer needed in life, I gained the experiences that I desired instead

When I believed with all my heart that the same force of life, which breathed life into me, was on my side, it empowered and protected me wherever I went.

Edge of the Cliff
by Serene Martin

There will come a time when we will need to step over the edge of the cliff of certainty

Where we feel we have extinguished all resources we have grown to rely upon in our spirits

We must believe one of two things will happen:

Angels we never knew we had will catch our fall

Or we will learn to fly

If you really love yourself, dream big.
by Serene Martin


"I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realised, than lord among those without dreams and desires."

-Kahlil Gibran-

Throughout my life I have certainly done things I have enjoyed doing most of the time (thank god for that).
