Creating a Theme for 2016

creating a theme for 2016

As featured in Inspire by Psycle – 21 January 2016


Who do you need to be to live an inspired 2016?

The media is full of two things in January: the importance of setting new years resolutions and all of the ways that you apparently will fail in doing so. Evidence based research tells us that most people trying to stick to resolutions will last only 24 days. They even have an especially depressing media term. ‘Fail Friday’ is apparently when reality hits most people, alongside the stick that they start to use for self flagellation over the months to come.

So what’s the solution? First of all always, always start from a place of self-love rather than dissatisfaction.

I am here to tell you that you are already incredible and inspiring just by being yourself. The question is how can you let more of that shine? How can you move away from default switched off living, towards a path of created purpose-full living?

The second part of the solution is to set a theme, or intention for the year rather than rigid and ultimately, blame and shame filled resolutions. And it’s not too late in mid January, February or even in September, because every minute of every day is an opportunity to live into who you can truly be.

Last year my theme was ‘Connection’. I wanted to set myself the challenge of finding a deeper connection to myself and to others also see how much more richness I could find in life, as well as how much more I could create in my work from that place. It was quite a ride that lead to a huge amount of growth, an incredible increase in my income, far deeper relationships and touching a magic of life that I could only have imagined previously.

This year I’m making it less about the external and bringing the focus much more into myself and my body. My theme for the coming year is still around connection to self, but this time in the form of ‘Radical Self Care’. By that I mean how I can micro focus on my body, home, spiritual health and general internal wellbeing in order to create an even richer experience of life.

What is your theme?

Have a think about it. if you were to set a theme for this coming year what would it be?

These three questions could help:

1. What belief could I introduce this year that would make the biggest difference in my life?

2. How would I like to feel?

3. What is it that I could focus on now that would have REALLY created a difference in my quality of life by this time next year?

One of my coaching clients set their theme as ‘A Year of Abundant Living’, another was ‘Speaking My Truth’, another ‘Balance’. What would you like more of, what would create a stretch for you? What is it that by living intentionally into your theme will give you so much more of what you want in your world?

What does it mean to you and for you?

When you have set your theme spend time either in quiet contemplation with yourself, or with a coach and write down all the things that come to you around your theme. For me it is things like, creating a daily meditation practice, specifics to do with how I manage my time and run my business, books that I will read, a retreat that I will go on, how I will parent differently, a more nurturing focus on exercise and sleep…

What will yours be? It may be useful to keep a running list of ideas on your phone that you can add to when you feel inspired.

And remember, it is impossible to fail at this. Everything you do or don’t do is just useful information – be awake to what it means for you, think fluid rather than rigid, take the feedback, and most of all enjoy the exploration.

Ask yourself regularly “who do I need to be in this moment to live into my theme more fully?”And most of all have the most fun you can have by being you!

Exclusive Nurturing for Growth Coaching Day


Come and join me for an exclusive one-to-one coaching day with transformational Cognitive Hypnotherapy, Deep Coaching and bodywork sessions.

How connected to yourself are you feeling today? Do you feel stressed or sometimes anxious, or just that life is moving a little too fast and you would like to press pause?

How much love are you heaping on yourself right now? Maybe you find yourself stuck in negative patterns or limiting beliefs that you would benefit from letting go of, or perhaps you see that increased clarity and relaxation in your life would make the biggest difference?

Love is in htei air

Take time to stop, nurture and transform.

Most people spend a lot of time keeping themselves from themselves. I believe that in order to have the fullest experience of life we need to let go of the areas that are limiting us but most of all, we need to learn how to slow down, be present and connect more deeply to ourselves and to others. Come and spend the day with me in a wonderful combination of clearing, transforming, relaxation and massage where your body and mind will begin to learn a new possibility for living.

Nurturing for Growth Coaching Day Suggested Schedule:

Prior to meeting we will have a conversation where I can find out more about where you are at in your life and where you would like to be.

Then the day itself will start as we create time to breathe, reflect and transform how you are currently experiencing the world into something that serves you more deeply as a parent, lover, partner and/or in the wider world of your work. We will dive into transforming something fundamental and be open to the possibility that you will experience a powerful core shift that will change how things are currently showing up in your life.

We will then break for a light lunch and then in the afternoon I will arrange for you to have a luxurious relaxing, soothing full body massage or similar bodywork session to release tension and increase deep and full relaxation (the choice of treatment can be either a surprise based on what we discuss in our pre-meeting conversations, or you can choose one that would serve you to the fullest). This will also encourage a somatic release of emotional tension stored in your body from the morning’s session.

We will then end the day continuing the theme of nurturing for growth, where we will consolidate our work throughout the day and reflect on what it can mean for your life going forward.

Exclusive full day one-to-one Intensive with coaching, therapy, a massage or body treatment, optional yoga and lunch: £1,457 incl. VAT

For more information, or to discuss this or other coaching day intensives or one-to-one programmes just drop me a line here telling me a bit about yourself and where you are at in your life. I’ll very much look forward to being part of your journey going forward.

*Please note that there is also the option of starting this deep coaching day early with a yoga class – something I often recommend to my clients for opening up the body before a day of intensive work together.

 **Please note also that gift vouchers can be arranged for this or similar deep coaching day experiences for loved ones, employees or others that you feel would benefit.
