World feeling wonky? Maybe it’s Mercury Retrograde

A couple of years ago I received a letter from a hospital, it read: I am writing to you regarding Mr A Little’s stored sperm samples. We are currently auditing Mr Little’s file; since you were the named partner in his consent form we would like your consent for disposal of his samples. That’s a true story! I stopped in my tracks, wondering for a moment what an earth was going on. … Continued

Coaching insights #4 How to coach clients stuck in fantasy

Fantasy – we all do it don’t we? Dream, imagine, fantasise, taking ourselves away from our reality, and for a moment in time transporting ourselves to another place, another world, another experience. Gazing into thin air, watching coffee swirl in an endlessly stirred mug or drifting deeply into a novel, we all have our favourite, innocent forms of escape. For some people imagination is their art or even their science. … Continued

Coaching Insights #3 – The space between

  I could hear the pain in her voice when I asked what she wanted from her coaching. “I want everything to be normal again” she said.  I asked if things had ever been normal and she described that time with ease. When I asked what she wanted it to look like in the future, it was harder for her to tell me this in that moment in her coaching. I let it … Continued

Finding freedom by shedding the illusion of life

Over a number of years she had stripped away layers of herself.  Slowly, almost unnoticeably to the outside world, she was different. Becoming less of who she was, so she could be more of who she is. It should have been a celebration. So much to be thankful for. Facing the shadows of the dark so she could dance in the light. “I don’t like what I’m left with” she … Continued

Moments

  MOMENTS by Danielle Marchant There are moments in life when everything shifts. Like the earth tilting to a different degree on it’s axis. Moments that catch your breath and steal your heart. A glance between new lovers, a baby’s first cry, cherry blossom floating like confetti from the sky. There are moments in life when everything shifts. Like the earth tilting to a different degree on it’s axis. Moments … Continued

How to read the signs before life throws you a curve ball

I first learned how to pause the hard way. It was an inelegant crash landing into a messy heap, and in the autumn of 2011, I retreated from the world for three months. It was a massive curve ball.   I was a high flyer, running two businesses, living in Singapore – I thought I was having the time of my life. On a farm deep in Cornwall, in the … Continued

Is it selfish to put yourself first?

At the front of my diary for a couple of years after I burnt out it said, ‘put yourself at the centre of your world’. This was an instruction to myself.  A lesson learned but not yet integrated, which at that time I needed to be constantly reminded of. When I initially wrote those words, they seemed completely alien to me, totally selfish to put myself first in this way. … Continued
