Make Your Dream Come True Day

By Clare Wildman / 10th January 2022 / Comments Off on Make Your Dream Come True Day

Did you know that January 13th is Make Your Dreams Come True Day?  Well it is according to a calendar I found online and that’s good enough for me!  Actually as far as I’m concerned that should be the case every day but maybe that’s a little unrealistic for some. In all honesty I love…

Who am I?

By Clare Wildman / 17th May 2021 / Comments Off on Who am I?

“Who am I?” can feel like a really big and scary question to ask can’t it?  Yet having a sense of self can help us to steer our way in life.  I was reading about this recently in the magazine Calm and Clear. The article quotes psychotherapist Noel McDermott as saying “We can think of…

A comment made by a friend over dinner the other night about some advice she had been given has triggered one of my pondering sessions…. Having started a new role she is now working from home for some of the time and was telling me that she has been advised to setup an office space…

Self-judgement Saturday

By Clare Wildman / 5th January 2019 / Comments Off on Self-judgement Saturday

It’s the first Saturday of 2019 and our regular plans were cancelled….so I slept in until about 10 am! Shocking! That’s when the self-judgement struck. Actually it’s very similar to how my Saturday’s worked when I lived on my own but it’s only recently that I’ve noticed just how well it works for me. Today…

Time to Talk Day

By Clare Wildman / 1st February 2018 / Comments Off on Time to Talk Day

Time to Talk When you hear the word HEALTH what comes to mind?  For many it is diet, for others it is all about activity but until recently the mind/soul/spirit side of things has been largely neglected.  The tide is turning though.  With stress, anxiety and depression now affecting so many people this is an…

New Year Resolutions, New Options

By Clare Wildman / 3rd January 2017 / Comments Off on New Year Resolutions, New Options

New Year, New Options New options is the way I prefer to see the whole business of New Year resolutions. After all the idea is about creating something different for the year ahead. There is something inspiring about that first blank page of the calendar.  A fresh start, a new beginning.  Of course we can…

What is the purpose of education?

By Clare Wildman / 3rd October 2015 / Comments Off on What is the purpose of education?

I’ll warn you now I don’t have the answers but this question was prompted by reading, on facebook, that there is going to be a Virgin Disruptors debate on education.  Having read the article I decided to share it and add my own comments.  When I started I didn’t realise quite how much I had…

Glass half full or half empty

By Clare Wildman / 30th September 2015 / Comments Off on Glass half full or half empty

It’s used as a pointer about how positively they see life.  I’ve noticed though that there’s another distinction that is worth looking out for when it comes to how you view your achievements or…

Should – who says?

By Clare Wildman / 25th August 2015 / Comments Off on Should – who says?

Since I started my life coaching training I’ve become very sensitive to the word ‘should’ and love to replace it with ‘could’. Recently I’ve noticed that every time someone in the coaching room says ‘should’ my first question is “who says?”  It’s far better than asking someone to do the ‘should/could swap’ as it really…
