If your work/ life blend over the summer is leaving you lacking in serenity, here is a summer serenity guided visualisation to focus your mind, find relaxation and carve out a little piece of serene haven during the summer months.
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won't be disturbed. Sit or lie down in a relaxed position, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths to centre yourself.
Imagine yourself in a beautiful natural setting that embodies the essence of summer. Picture a serene beach, a lush forest, a tranquil meadow, or any place that makes you feel at peace. Notice the colours, smells, and sounds of this environment.
Feel the warmth of the sun gently touching your skin, bringing a sense of comfort and relaxation. As the sun's rays penetrate your body, visualise them carrying away any tension or stress, leaving you feeling light and rejuvenated.
Imagine the rhythm of the ocean waves as you breathe. Inhale slowly and deeply, just like a wave reaching the...
Goal setting and vision boarding is one of those techniques that you completely embrace for the upcoming periods. I love visions boards, I adore them but sometimes equally roll my eyes when I this practice. In this blogpost we will cover why visions boards are great, the application of vision boards, how vision can be misleading and the missing ingredient.
In our brains, across the brainstem, is something we call the reticular activating system or RAS for short. Its main function is regulating arousal and sleep-wake transitions. However, the ascending projections of the RAS facilitate the conscious perception of sensory stimuli. Meaning that when it comes to vision boards, this translates to sifting criteria in your RAS, and the perceived need to see and even respond to sensory stimuli.
When we put something on our vision boards, it goes into the RAS which acts like a sift. A good example of this sifting process is...

It is very common for successful people to experience imposter syndrome and self-doubt, including the likes of Tina Fey or Sheryl Sandberg, who have publically claimed at times they felt like a fraud.
A review article in the International Journey of Behavioural Science puts the figure at an estimated 70% of people who experience the imposter syndrome phenomenon at some point in their lives.
Know that you are not alone.
So if we know that it is common, the feelings of Imposter Syndrome - know that it isn’t experiencing it that is the problem, it’s how we recognise and deal with it that has the biggest impact on our outcomes.
How true is this?
We’ve talked before about ‘stories’ and how we have them for time, money and success. Well, one of these life stories can be around our comparison of...
I offer hypnosis as part of my extended coaching services to reprogram a wide range of lifestyle and business issues. Hypnosis is a powerful technique and I’ve observed clients connecting with some of their true desires through hypnotherapy.
So I sought out a method that combined coaching and hypnotherapy for connecting with your goals, your true desires and what it actually is that you desire to create. And guess what? I couldn’t find any that resonated.
