Are You the Kind of Romantic Partner You Seek?

What are the qualities and attributes you seek in your romantic partner, aka your husband? How do you wish he would ‘be’ with you in order for you to feel cherished and loved and deeply fulfilled in your relationship? In an ideal world, what does your ‘laundry list’ of requirements for that perfect partner look […]

Is (Lack of) Communication in Your Marriage Getting You Down?

One of the biggest challenges my clients face in their marriages is around the topic of communication. We all know how important good communication is in any relationship, yet it’s something so many of us struggle with, especially with our husbands. Too often, my clients’ well-intentioned attempts at opening up a mature dialogue quickly descends into conflict and blame, with […]

Should You Stay Married for the Sake of the Kids?

In my last blog post I talked about the common myth that can keep you stuck in a bad marriage, or a marriage you simply no longer wish to be in, for years. Today I want to talk about another prevalent reason that keeps many women (and men) stuck in unhappy relationships. And that is: ‘We have […]

Does Asking for Help Make You Weak?

There’s a common misconception amongst us women that we should be able to figure out the solutions to all of life’s myriad challenges and problems by ourselves. It’s part of the job description for being a ‘strong, independent woman’ isn’t it?! In certain situations, we believe that asking for help somehow makes us appear weak – to ourselves, other people and the person we’re asking for the […]

The No.1 Regret of the Dying

You may have read the blog post and/or book: The Top Five Regrets of the Dying. I was familiar with the article and had read it maybe three or four times over the last couple of years. Today I received an invitation in my Inbox to watch a short interview with the author, Bronnie Ware (you […]

The Biggest Lie

I’ve got too much going on to even think about this. I haven’t got the time/money/energy to do it right now. I’m not in the right headspace for it. It’s not that important – really. I’m so stressed at the moment I can’t even think about it. I’ll make it a priority tomorrow/next week/next month/next year/next […]

What Is Perfect About This?

I remember one of the first times I asked a client this question. It was via email to follow up our initial coaching session. My client told me she almost spat her coffee (or was it wine?) at the screen when she read the question. Because, of course – it was a preposterous question! Nothing? […]

Are You Mistaking Busy-ness for Worthiness?

Busy. Busy. We are all so very busy. Kids. Home. Careers. Friends. Husbands. Parents. Exercise. Family. Projects. The constant juggling act. Racing from one responsibility to the next. Barely stopping to catch our breath. ‘Me time’ an elusive, guilt-ridden fantasy. Zero time to pause and question our choices. No time to lose. Winning First Place We’ve […]

Just Own It

I’ve become intrigued recently with the concept of ‘owning it.’ By ‘it’ I mean our emotional life. Owning our physical stuff like our house, our car, our furniture, our clothes, our jewellery. That’s easy. We know how to do that. But what about owning our emotional stuff? What about owning our choices? Even when they’re unconscious, […]

What Are You Waiting For?

Are you in love? You may think I’m asking you to ponder this question in relation to your husband. Nope. Not today. That’s another question for another blog post. What I want to ask you today is this: Are you in love with your life? What’s Love Got To Do With it? Maybe it’s a question […]
