I was blown away by the response from my initial post, realising how many women in their mid forties and beyond feel exactly the same as I do about their bodies.

In this episode I share what happened after that post, and an exciting new opportunity for my communi...

I’ve been hating my body and shaming myself for putting on weight over the past 5 years. I feel far from confident about it.

Every night I look at myself in the mirror, and tell myself my stomach is fat. I tell myself that I should be at a certain weight. That I look awful. That no man would find me attractive. That I won’t achieve the level of success I want unless I’m thin.

I oscillate between accepting where I am and learning to l...

Cherie had a long career in the financial services industry as a CPA before starting her own Health Coaching business.  She is no stranger to the non-stop lifestyle that most of us live and h...

In this week’s episode I say goodbye to The Empty Nest Countdown, to make way for something fresh …… a new podcast with a different name and slightly different direction.

When I started my Podcast a year ago my focus was on helping women as they navigate the transition stage to becoming empty nesters, and working with them as they decide their next step once the kids leave home.

And while I still work with women in this phase of life...

Are you ready to delve into the {*cough} mysterious realm of shadow work with me?

JK I’m not talking about sneaking around in the dark or battling supernatural, Lord of the Rings type creatures (although that’d be pretty interesting!).

Shadow work is actually an incredibly powerful and transformative practice that helps us uncover the hidden aspects of ourselves.

So, grab a cuppa, cozy up, and let's do it, shall we?

In this week’s episode of the Podcast, I want to introduce you to - if you’ve not heard of him already - Eckhart Tolle.

He is one of my very early teachers and way before I decided to become a Coach and complete the trainings I have now.

He wrote a book called A New Earth which changed my life back in the mid 2000’s.

It’s one of the best books i’ve ever read. And I learned so so much from it.

Tony Robbins says we have 6 human needs that drive our behaviour and shape our lives.

We must have each of these 6 needs fulfilled to some degree so that we feel fulfilled and happy.

Understanding and fulfilling these needs can help us achieve greater personal and professional success, and create a more meaningful...
