When you want to get on and succeed in work or in a new career or a business venture or in a new relationship or in fact anything that you care about then carrying these internal narratives around takes up a ton of bandwidth and wastes time.
The higher you aim, the more you come up against the wire with this.
I know this stuff so well. Deep seated and quite vicious at times, this soul-destroying phenomenon plays with our mind and stops us from doing our best work or our best life.
I don’t know anyone who has escaped without some vestige of this stuff.
So, I’ve designed an intervention to help disrupt these nasty internal narratives and limiting self beliefs.
Fundamentally my vision for you is to support you to gain a greater sense of what’s possible for you and turn down the volume on the inner voices that tell you otherwise. Sound good? I’m excited.
It’s a deep dive enquiry into these internal voices, scripts and narratives. The why, the what, the when and the how.
You will get clear on how this plays out for you in your work or life and we will together create and, most importantly, we will practice strategies to counter the internal debilitating noise and voices.
Ultimately the intervention will help you to find a deeper sense of internal freedom.
The work will create inner space so you can think about what’s possible.
We will dive in and I promise, like all of my groups, we will have fun and do some blindingly profound work all at the same time.

SMALL PRINT and FAQ
How much time will this take out of my week?
The weekly coaching calls will be 2 hours long and will be ONE morning A WEEK 10am-12 BST. In addition to this I will send everyone a written thought piece to read - this will take around 10 mins per week to read and digest. The time you spend thinking about the prompts I suggest to do on the course will obviously be dictated by your situation.
If you are not currently working then you might have lots of time to really deep dive into the process and so on. On the other hand if you have work, a family and other commitments then of course time will be limited and you will have to decide at the outset what kind of time allocation you can spare to the course. We will deal with this in the opening session. I would hope that you will be able to spend at least one-two hours per week on the programme to get the benefits and then if you can spend more time then you will move forward faster. And of course - because of the way this course is presented you will infact be working on your issues at a unconscious level throughout the process. In this way I plan the course to be immersive on a range of levels.
I am working full time during the day - will I miss out the coaching calls?
I would suggest (and this may be tricky for some) that if you want to do this programme and you are working full time that you talk to your boss/supervisor about being allowed to take 2 hours off per week as CPD / work-related training or TOIL etc. Employers are far more aware these days of the need for staff to be happy and thinking about their well being, personal and professional development. You will be learning loads of new skills via the work we do together and it will all be deeply applicable for your leadership and ability to take initiative in your organisation. The workshop calls will be recorded and sent to you each week as a record and can be replayed and watched at any time. In addition you can post questions and queries on the daily online platform and get issues cleared up immediately this way too.
I am a parent with kids at home - they may be 'in the room' with me and I may have to look after them at the same time...is this OK?
YES of course...everyone is welcome. I am totally used to having kids in the space. I've got three of my own and should schools close then they will be at home with me too so I will have to juggle as well. Such is life at the moment :)
What tech do I need?
You will need to have access to zoom for the calls and to what's app so you can join the private online community. I will send details of all of this once you are booked onto the course.
Do I need access to any other materials?
You will need a notebook and pens. In addition, and because I use creative methods in the groups we may be drawing, writing, or making stuff. It would be great therefore if you have access to a cheap set of paints, felt tips (kids standard is totally fine), brushes and some A3 paper. Creative expression will come in all sorts of ways and so could be a poem, notes, a song, some music etc etc. Access to all of this seems to be wide scale these days so no need to have anything in particular.
If I miss the live calls will this mean it's not such a good programme for me to do?
I am sure that life will undoubtedly happen and you might miss a call or two and this will be fine. The replay is there to use as if you are in the room at the time and this is a great back-up - as is the daily online community. Playing a part in the live calls however is proven to accelerate learning as is the sense of community that is important in online groupwork. Being able to attend at least 30% of the live calls would be beneficial as a good place to check-in live with me and your fellow colleagues as we go through the programme.
Do I have to have set ideas of what I want from the course before I do the programme?
NO - not at all. What you do need to come on the programme with is a positive intention to start to explore ideas and do the work that will help yourself. My work as coach will be to ask incisive questions and lead you through a process that will open up ideas and thinking so we can work on this together. Whatever you come on the programme with will be exactly the right place for you to be. The programme is designed as a journey and it is this journey that will be useful to go on - you won't know what the destination will look like yet.
I'm not an artist - is this programme for me?
This programme is open to anyone and everyone but I have added this question because I am known as someone who works with creative processes as a way to unlock ideas and new ways forward. I make no assumption about who will be attracted to the course and what your background will be. This programme is for anyone who see's themself in the scenarios described above, and who, when reading this information can feel like there's something in this programme for you. I will use creative tasks to uncover information and ideas but ALL of my methods are designed with no artistic background needed.
Can I pay in instalments?
Yes of course - I am happy to set up a payment plan with you.
I am an introvert and/or a bit nervous of joining a group of people online I've never met before and talking about my stuff that's personal - how will it be facilitated?
Safety in groups is really important for me as a facilitator and I work very hard at the beginning and throughout the programme to make sure that we creat the right atmosphere and space to make sure everyone feels that you can contribute and be yourself in the group. Without this we wont be able to take risks and try out new ideas etc. Everything we do in the programme is private and confidential to the group and we will make a group agreement at the outset that will act as a tight container. I am skilled at supporting less vocal people to get involved and find space in groups.
In addition I send an on-boarding questionnaire before everyone starts just to make double sure that the course is appropriate for everyone and everyone is appropriate for the course. This way I make sure that people who might need more in depth work, like therapy, are signposted to these types of intervention.
