Autumn Newsletter – Times are Changing
Note from the Author
We are almost halfway through May! The nights are drawing in, it is almost time to light the fires and make Glühwein, curl up with an enthralling book on a Friday night! Autumn is the season of shedding, of letting go.
In my coaching space, I am meeting a number of new clients who have woken up to a life-crossroad, a new awareness something has to change. Whether it’s a seeking new a job or a desire for a more purposeful relationship or re-igniting a marriage that has gone a bit stale, autumn seems to bring a season of reflection and review of one’s life.
- What is going well? – Can I do more of it?
- What is not going well? – Reassess do I need to keep this going? Can I delegate it? What is the value it offers in my life? How can I do it differently?
- What am I enjoying in my life? – Can I do more of it?
- What am I not enjoying? – Can I do less of it or stop altogether?
- What exhausts me? Enrages me? – Is it in my control to do less of that, or change it?
- What refreshes and rejuvenates me? – How can I do more of that?
If we just take these few questions seriously, we can create the pathway to a life full of meaning and purpose because it combines doing what we need to do to fulfil our responsibilities and more of appreciating what revives us from within.
If you feel stuck at your crossroad, let’s meet and have a “think together” and find what is limiting assumptions you hold and find the question that will enable you to find your alternative liberating assumption!
Equine Assisted Learning
A Day at the
Equine Assisted Learning is a relatively new expression of coaching. It has been my privilege to collaborate with the team at the EARTH Centre for the Equine Leadership workshops with corporate teams. We learn quickly in the presence of the horses about social safety, relationship boundaries, collaboration, teamwork, integrity and personal integration of head, heart and gut. We get in touch with our emotions which often limit us due to assumptions and beliefs we hold about ourselves and others.
Working with Natalie Stobäus, her equine and human team is proving to be a gift for our clients to discover personal truths that assist them to grow in courage, truth, confidence and resilience.
Couples Retreat 2019
Good communication is at the centre of every working relationship! Once we are over the honeymoon period of our relationship we need to remember to practice good communication – we do that by listening well to each other, spending quality time together, living in the present and planning for the future. We need to give time to each other to grow individually as well as time together to nurture our relationship. This retreat weekend will provide the opportunity to have some honest conversations together, learn some tools for conflict resolution; and to create a vision board which gives expression to shared values, plans and dreams.
Our venue will provide comfortable bedroom suites, good food, quiet places to take country walks, and relax in nature as well as a lovely airy room where our sessions will take place.
