Hi Ladies, I’m Beth
I am a certified transformation and life coach who is passionate about helping woman manage stress by empowering them to let go of limiting beliefs and negative emotions.
Self Care, it seems everyone is talking about it! Sadly, for some, it has become something else to add to the list of things we should be doing. These two words have become too closely associated with going to the spa or taking long baths that many people have started to say they don’t have the time or money to do it.
However, self care is about so much more than pampering yourself once in a while (which is good but it not the only form of self care!). It is about knowing what sets your soul on fire and then actually doing whatever that may be.
But.. are your beliefs sabotaging you?read more
From the words of Gandhi “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” to Einstein “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them”, inspirational people have been talking for a long time about changing ourselves and our inner world in order to change our reality.
Many of us read these quotes and think “Ah yes, I need to make time at some point to try do that inner work” and then carry on with our daily lives living out the same reality that has been causing us stress and sending us towards burn out.
But why?read more
With the start of the new year, there are so many different adverts doing the rounds, that can make us feel that just because it is January, we are going to be able to make all the changes we want to make and reach all the resolutions we have been setting for the last few years.
Don’t get me wrong, I think that January is a great time to reflect, set intentions / goals and have the motivation of a fresh start but I do feel that a lot of the adverts and hype that does the rounds can actually make us feel like we need to achieve perfect lives, with a perfect body, perfect relationships, a perfect job, perfect house, perfect everything. It can also distract us from focusing on what we really want and need in our lives.
This has led me to want to answer the question “Why are we always striving to be perfect?”read more
With the holiday season on our doorsteps I have started to think about how stressful this time of the year can be for many of us.
It doesn’t always feel like the most wonderful time of the year! What with feeling the pressure to finish off as much as possible at work, buy everyone gifts in overcrowded shops, having extra events in our schedules, organising our own celebrations for Christmas and New Years as well as many people travelling, just the extra mental load is enough to cause a little bit of anxiety to creep up.
Having boundaries is one of the most important elements to managing stress but I find as women we often neglect putting them in place or enforcing them out of the fear of disappointing others. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be the best at everything and trying to please others that we end up feeling used or like our needs are not being met.
Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave towards them and how they will respond when someone passes those limits.read more
