The Influence of Girl Power

As a child, I was absolutely in love with the Spice Girls and everything they stood for. I'd never thought deeply into how Girl Power had influenced the person I've become until more recently.

Power Planner Workshop

Conquer procrastination with my Power Planner workshop. I'm running this workshop because I realise we all need some direction when planning our goals and the steps we need to take to reach them. Maybe you're not even much of a planner, maybe you are but feel a bit lost right now. I've spoken to people who are waiting until Covid-19 ends before they start focusing on the things they want out of life, work and business. For me, it's just not feasible. We don't know when this will end, but that doesn't mean we can't work on our goals…

Journal prompts for self-care

When was the last time you wrote in your journal? I used to write in mine when I was angry or upset, when I needed to offload. Now I write in there daily. It's a great way for me to connect with myself on a deeper level. Having a deep connection with myself has been important as I learn to better care for and love myself after trauma. A huge part of my self-care is journaling and it makes a huge difference on my emotional wellbeing. Having the opportunity to vent, offload and disclose my thoughts and feelings in…

Keeping it together while the world falls apart

The last 12 months have challenged us all in ways we never expected. I've teetered near the edge many times... but somehow I'm managing to keep it together while the world feels like it is falling apart. So this is our new normal. It's a year into the pandemic, and we're still wearing masks. We're still working from home and staying away from our loved ones, and still social distancing. How did we get here? In the UK, we first went into lockdown in March 2020. I didn't know we'd still be here now, but did anybody? We were…

The healing journey: what it means to heal

And this is what is most important about the healing journey. You don't receive a certificate in the post, congratulating you on your efforts. It's in the small things, doing your food shopping without anxiety, calling a friend when you feel triggered, practicing self-care when you'd usually spiral. This is how we know the work we're doing is working. We're breaking down old coping mechanisms and cycles, and creating something that feels better in its place.

Create a personal retreat (without leaving your house)

Have you ever felt like you want to disappear to a cabin somewhere and have your own personal retreat? I've felt a lot like that this year. If you're reading this, I know you can relate. The online and offline world in 2020 is overwhelmingly loud and the first 6 months felt way too stressful for me to handle alone. I felt like I couldn't cope and I was beginning to have tension headaches. There was nowhere I could go and escape it all. There was nowhere to go in lockdown (except Aldi), and it was affecting me massively.…

There is no way on this planet I could have been prepared for coronavirus and lockdown, so when it came to launching my book, I had to ask myself two questions: Wait until next year to launch itLaunch it anyway Naturally I chose to launch it online. Disclaimer I've been building my online brand for years and have a gorgeous following of people who support everything I do. I also…

Be on the right side of history.

Black Lives Matter All the time. Every day. I feel a little overwhelmed by the online world sometimes, don't you? But it's been so necessary this year. Everything is heightened because we need to pay attention to the world around us. We're being invited to be on the right side of history. It really feels like 2020 is the year where everything is brought into the open so we can examine it as a worldwide community and let's face it; some of what we're looking at isn't pretty. Racism is difficult for everybody to talk about but we must talk…

My memoir: She Who Writes

I know not everybody feels called to share their vulnerable moments with the public. But when you read this, you will understand how we survive, how we rebuild our broken foundations and cement a new home within ourselves. One that thrives on life and love, one that feels safe inside.
