How could your life have changed so radically? What is the personal cost of an unhappy marriage? It wasn’t that long ago you were enjoying dreams of happily ever after.

How to overcome being needy is a common theme in my counselling sessions.  Why are we needy and what does it look like? You may be always running to your partner for help? Perhaps you are constantly texting, messaging even if they are at work? Needing affection and attention from your partner? Need to be with your partner, what are they doing? If a text or call doesn’t come in, you worry and you think something is wrong. When you are needy it’s very unattractive and your partner will begin to pull away and in turn, can ruin your relationship/marriage.  When your … Read More

We often talk about being accomplished and what we have achieved.   I believe its not the quantity and how much you have achieved but whether you have accomplished the right things, for you. Not for your mother, father, partner, but for you. Imagine spending years on the wrong things?   And yes, it happens for many of us where you are trying to please others.

It's essential that you live with clarity, your clarity and what makes your heart sing what makes you feel happy, peaceful contentment and feeling joy and balance. How do … Read More

Last night I was watching a show on the ABC about suicide and they were focussing on men. They talked about vulnerability and how difficult it is for some men to open up and share what’s happening in their inner world. And that takes me to this  article “Being Vulnerable” My take on being vulnerable is actually being able to be present, honest and fully embrace the experience of life. Being totally open not adjusting yourself to soften that response that you may receive from a partner, work colleague or a friend. Being totally authentic and true to yourself. What’s vulnerable you … Read More

Twice in 2 years suffering with burnout, wow!! Have you heard that saying keep doing the same thing you keep getting the same results?  And yes that is what I was doing, doing the same thing and not learning. What’s burnout you ask?

Most of you would have heard of the freeze, fight or flight response. It’s an acute stress response which is out of your control because you have been triggered and your feeling unsafe.    I can use me as a specific example for this.  In my family I WAS known as the holiday wrecker.  For my entire adult life (apart from the last 5 years) every time I went on a holiday with my husband and 3 sons who are nearly all adults I would suffer with major anxiety.  For so many years I just didn’t get what was going on with … Read More
