All Episodes

Join me this week as I explore how we highly sensitive people and professionals absorb layers after layers of “stuff” from other people as we go about our day.  Discover how being naturally compelled to take in stimulation from others creates a disconnect with ourselves. I discuss how this leaves us influenced by others, to the point of wondering what they think of us.  I am breaking down this experience for you to understand it deeply and be able to notice it in the future. Self-awareness and being the expert of yourself as an HSP is key!  I also show you that it is possible to regulate our in-take and develop the skill of dialling up and down what we absorb from others. I share five of my strategies and exercises to get started now and start lightening up this load of information which can drain our energy and hold us back form focusing on our own journey. If this episode resonated and you are ready to create calm, confidence and consistency in your life using my 5 control points© method, book your consultation today – now is always the best moment to start.

Men commit just under 75% of suicides in the UK. Let’s try to understand why and see how we can positively impact this alarming trend using #internationalmentalhealthday and #internationalmensday as our backdrop. Maintaining good mental health is a process and intentional practice, every day of the year. I had an insightful conversation with author, junior Nobel prize nominee and poor mental health survivor Mathew Warboys on “From good to great leadership with Muriel” to celebrate his new article on male suicide prevention as well as the upcoming International Men’s day on 19th of November 2020.  We discuss how men’s mental health is impacted in our modern society, why men are struggling to reach out for support and what to do to seek for help or help out others.
