Tidy house, tidy mind?

Thanks to Rachel, one of our long term listeners, this week we found ourselves talking about author Marie Kondo and her book ‘The Life Changing Magic of Tidying’.

Dealing with Self Doubt

The podcast this week follows on from last week when we heard Alex describe herself as “only a hairdresser”. My point to her was that she was not giving herself the value that she deserved.

Even the most focused and determined of people can never be 100% sure of the outcome of life or their endeavours. Yet, we are not […]

The Joy of Pets
