A place to Pause in the big smoke

I’ve never liked London in the summer.  I’m an ocean girl at heart. Think cool sea breezes, soft white sand between your toes, gin blue waters that lead to the depths.  No, the city and I don’t go well together in the summer.

The vastness, the beauty, the challenge, the danger.  It all feels real. Diving to the depths I feel alive.  Present.  Connected.  Stretched. Yesterday I realised this is the journey of coaching for my clients. It was a usual day … Continued
