turning my inner critic into my inner cheerleader
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
This one is for you if you are curious about how to get that critical voice in your head to stop having so much control over you!
Someone wise once said that we are our own worst critic.
You might recognise the inner critic. She is the voice in your head that tells you that you look fat/ugly/frumpy (add derogatory descriptive here) when you look in the mirror. She is the voice that says ‘don’t do that…it’s a terrible idea! People will laugh at you!’ just before you are about to share something of yourself to others.
Our inner critic is like a drunken auntie at Christmas…no one want s to listen to her but it’s hard not to! And sometimes, she might just be saying it how it is, speaking the words others are too polite to say. She can be paralysing. Ignore her completely and you could lose a potential risk-spotter. Listen to her wholly and you may start to believe her.
The good news is that there is an alternative! It is possible to harness our inner critic so that she becomes a helpful friend rather than a destructive force in our life. On this workshop we explore the inner critic and tried and tested techniques to manage her so that instead of getting in the way of our goals, she can help us to achieve them.
- How to recognise when your inner critic is talking to you
- How to make friends with your inner critic and take positive valuable lessons from her
- Tried and tested practical techniques to manage the voice of your inner critic to use in the moment everyday
- You’ll leave feeling empowered to turn your inner critic into your inner cheerleader!

BOOSTING MY CONFIDENCE To take control of my career
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
THIS ONE’S FOR YOU IF YOU ARE CURIOUS ABOUT how you can reconnect with your confident inner self - she is in there mama!
Our confidence can take a hit in motherhood for many different reasons – where maybe we used to feel confident at work, now we question our ability. Where we used to make decisions easily and quickly, we now hesitate or abdicate altogether. Where we used to meet new people easily and often, we now wonder how we can make new friends.
This knock in our confidence is totally understandable. Our worlds have been rocked by mini-humans who are demanding and all consuming! As we strive to be the best mamas we can be and give everything we have to our kids, there is a strange but real disconnect with how we also manage our own confidence levels. We can be brilliant mamas AND reconnect with our confident selves!
- how to Recognize when you are feeling less than confident and the reasons behind it
- the power of self-talk and how to harness it using positive language
- how helpful it is to Reconnect with your strengths to give yourself a turbo boost
- how it feels to look and sound confident through playing with your body language and voice
FINDING AND FOLLOWING MY TRUE PURPOSE
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
THIS ONE’S FOR YOU IF you are curious about connecting what you choose to do everyday to your bigger purpose in life - to make your work meaningful
Doing something you are good at but that doesn’t light your fire? Feeling like there is something bigger and better out there that you need to be doing with your life? Not sure what it is you are meant to be doing? Not sure how to achieve it?
It’s the dream - to find what it is that you were put on this earth to do, and then to be able to do it. Purpose is powerful - they say if you find your purpose you’ll never work another day in your life. And the exciting thing is it doesn’t just have to be a dream. This workshop will make it your reality. You will reconnect with your personal values to help you to crystallise what matters to you - the big stuff in life. Then you will link it to your dream profession - choosing a career that means each day you’ll be living your purpose. Then you’ll explore how to achieve it - how to follow that purpose. You’ll leave with a plan of action and be clear on the steps you will take to achieve that dream. It’s inspirational stuff.
- how to reconnect with your personal values and the qualities that matter to you
- the power of finding your purpose - the thing that will get you out of bed each morning!

STAYING ‘ME’ in MOTHERHOOD: WHAT’S MY IDENTITY again?
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
THIS ONE’S FOR YOU IF you are curious about exploring and reconfirming your identity as a mama and a woman
It’s a strange thing that when we become mothers there is a real shift in how we identify with ourselves. Being ‘mummy’ is like wearing new coat - amazing and a bit uncomfortable at the same time, especially as not so long ago we identified ourselves through our jobs, our hobbies and our friends and family.
Staying ‘ME’ while being a brilliant mama is achievable and healthy - it allows you the freedom to explore the new world of motherhood in a familiar way - your own unique and individual way.
It can be helpful to reconnect with who we are and explore how we can bring ourselves to motherhood whilst keeping that essence that is…well..us!
This workshop is designed to help you explore why your identity matters. You’ll experience the power of labelling the different roles we have (stay-at-home-mum/working mum..etc) and you will also have space to reconnect with your unique qualities - the things that make you…YOU! You’ll leave with a reconfirmed sense of self and a renewed appetite to bring more ME to your everyday interactions.
- Why your identity matters - the impact it can have on self confidence and on the actions you take each day
- a heightened awareness of the power of labelling the different roles we have
- how to reconnect with your personal, uniques qualities and identify the opportunities you have everyday to bring more of those to your interactions and your being
- a renewed sense of self that is liberating and empowering!
MANAGING CHANGE - AND LEARNING TO LOVE IT!
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
THIS ONE’S FOR YOU IF you are curious about changing the way you think about change! if you’d love to stop dreading change and start embracing it.
You’ve probably heard all the famous quotes about change like ‘If you only do what you’ve always done, you’ll only get what you’ve always got’ (Henry Ford)…or ‘Be the change you seek’ (Ghandi?). Change is a high profile topic because it matters. In the rich tapestry that is our lives, the one thing we can be sure of is that we will encounter change in every single chapter - whether that be our careers or motherhood.
It’s as good a time as any to learn about how to handle these changes. Because no matter the topic, whether your role at work has changed, or your friendship circle looks completely different now, or just the fact that each time you THINK you’ve got things planned and organised, changes crop up to derail you!
This workshop is all about understanding the nature of change and how to notice it, accept it, and then find the positive in it. You’ll leave feeling good about change - and owning it!
- the nature of change: the inevitability of it and why that can feel so scary!
- how to identify what is changing and then accept it without judgment
- the surprising effectiveness of being kind to yourself through a period of change and identify ways to do this practically
- simple techniques to help you to see change in a positive way through the language you use and the mindset you hold
