Life Skills

When was the last time?

Actually, when was the last time that you made yourself a priority in terms of following your heartfelt dreams? I mean, really digging in deep and allowing those long forgotten dreams to come to the surface?

Take the Time to Dream

We are good at not prioritising the best for ourselves when it comes to planning & working towards the future. All too often we allow the plans & dreams of others to dictate how our life plays out before us.

But why do we allow this to happen? There may be many reasons including family of origin traits, previous disappointments, pressure from love ones or simply being told at a very young age that certain things are not possible for people like us.

I don’t know what it is for you, however, I do know what the answer is! Simply put, you need to do 3 things in order to make the changes you ‘believe’ you desire in life.

  1. Take the time to dream again, I mean, really dream.
  2. Create a plan to follow, beginning right away and
  3. Execute that plan every single day

OK, this list sounds simple enough and yet, I am willing to wager not 3% of you reading this post understand where to start or what action to take. And to be honest, that is understandable for some of the reasons I mentioned earlier.

So how do we make a change that sticks, make a step in the right direction? This is where the services of a qualified coach come into play. A coach quite simply can take you from where you are today to where you desire to be tomorrow.

Step into your Future!

Did you know that healthy people also go to counselling?

Did you know that healthy people also go to counselling?
I know right, it was a surprise to me also until a few years ago. My understanding was that only people who were desparate or really messed up went to counselling.

You could say that there is some kind of stigma attached (wrongly) to people who see the need to attend counselling. I am here to tell you that the truth is something quite different.

You are actually the expert in your own life, that’s right, you and no one else. Sure, we can get a little blind-sided at times and things that are obvious to others may not register in our minds. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that you are the CEO and ultimate decision maker in


My first experience of counselling was when I sought out a local counsellor for some advice. That advice was in fact around whether they thought I would be suited to the profession. So my idea was that I would go along to the session, tell the person what I need and they would tell me precisely what I needed to do. Oh, how misguided I was!

The very first thing they said after welcoming me to the counselling room was that they weren’t there to tell me what to do, but rather, to come along side and help me figure things out for myself. What a huge disappointment I felt deep in my spirit. After all, if they couldn’t tell me, how was I to work this out?

Enter counselling 101, active listening and an empathetic listener as my guide. By the end of the hour long session, I had managed to talk out what I was thinking, sought some guidance and had a good idea of my next right step, wow! (disclaimer: you will most likely need more than just one session for most things)

I felt energised, reaffirmed and positive that counselling (counsellor) had a part in my life and the very next year, I began my studies in counselling. But that is a subject perhaps for another post or 3 🙂

Let me finish by saying that if you are stuck or struggling or simply looking for some help with goals or direction in life, whatever the need, having a chat with a qualified counsellor is most likely going to be of significant benefit to you.

If you need a recommendation, feel free to contact me and I will be only too happy to refer you to someone suitable in your area.
