In today’s podcast, I’m going to tell you the story of my French teacher, who saw a weakness in me and played on it when I was at school. It’s a great lesson in what decides how the world shows up for us.

I am one of those people who loves making mistakes. Of course, it is not always pleasant and fun to see the result of them; however, the more mistakes I make, the more I feel I am engaging fully in life. There is an art to making mistakes - when I was young, my violin teacher taught me.

There is one thing in our lives that is certain. Reflecting on it can be a powerful way for us to get the most out of life.
If you want your life to change, you can change it. If you want different things showing up you can bring those things to you. I explain this in today’s podcast.
One of my students is struggling with being kind. He asked me to help him. In today's podcast, I discuss the importance of kindness as a daily practice.
In The 10 Minute Mind, one of the techniques I use is dropping the mind into the body. In today’s podcast, I explain what that means and why it is so powerful.
This is a sobering podcast. As I wake to the news that one of my students has lost her battle with Covid at 45 years old, leaving two young children, in honour of her, I want you to listen.
When I was a child, I had to lie a lot to survive. When I got older, I went in the opposite direction and became too honest. In today’s podcast, I discuss finding a balance within this idea of honesty being the best policy.
In today’s podcast, I answer a question from one of my students about feeling emotion during her meditation practice. In it, I explain why our minds are like antique stores and why it is crucial not only to recognise this but also address it.
Many of us are heading back into more Covid restrictions. What could appear to be a problematic time also presents us with a powerful opportunity, one that I hope you will take hold of with both hands.
If we want to be happier, we need to understand what it is that holds us back so that we can show up differently. In today’s podcast, I talk about one way that many of us create our suffering and how we can turn this around to become happier.
Sometimes being told to think positively can be the most frustrating thing someone can say to us. It can feel as though that person doesn't understand what we are going through. Other times we are taught that positive thinking is about saying affirmations. In today's podcast, I clear these questions up and show you exactly how to use positive thinking to your advantage.
For many of us, we are not good at asking for what we want or even need. It’s a habit of ours and one that is powerful to change.
Many of you are stressed out right now. It’s not surprising. A lot is going on. However, you have the opportunity to swim upstream and live these next few months differently. It’s like there is a low hanging, delicious apple in front of you. In today’s podcast, I show you how to pick it.
As we change so does the way we see people. Are they the same people? Are we the same? It’s about perspective.
If we believe that our opinions are unpopular, we can feel afraid to voice them and consequently silenced. We can retreat into our bubble where we lose sight more and more of the other side. There’s another way. This is what I discuss in today’s podcast.
Change takes time. Initially, it can feel challenging. However, if we can trust the process, we can start to make conscious choices about anything in our lives that is not working for us.
What is it that we are working towards? Is it feeling calmer, less stressed? Or is there a deeper meaning to this work? In today’s podcast, I answer this question.
In one of the major newspapers this morning, there was an article telling people to ditch their meditation. Here are my thoughts on that.
