#59 Guest Speaker Heather Palfreyman Confidence Coach

Ep. 59
Do you ever scroll through insta and suggestions appear of people you may know? Thats how I met Heather. I looked through her posts, watched her reels and for a few weeks just observed what she was up to... stalked, a little bit i guess. Heather's posts are honest and from the heart, she speaks form experience and whats even more admirable is she says things that other mum's may not feel so comfortable talking about, or are ashamed to say out loud. Heathers 'More than just Mum' business name is what really hooked me in, as i myself have had to remind myself that i am still there, i'm still Sally, whilst wading through a shower of sick. Heather is a confidence coach and business mentor. She helps women to find themselves again and live their life happy. Mostly her clients are mum's who feel like the have lost themselves and through Heathers own journey, she guides and helps to reinstate the confidence and self belief that was once there. Her story is an honest account of a woman who felt like she never fitted in and instead went and found her own tribe and mission. Heather is retable, down to earth and loads of fun. This was a pleasure to record and the conversation was effortless. I know you'll enjoy. Heathers details to connect are below. Thank you for listening.

#58 I bought my son a Toy Kitchen

Ep. 58
I've been a bit all over the place with episodes in recent weeks, more so than ever over the last 2 weeks. We've all caught the lurgy at home and for the second time in a year i've had a nasty case of tonsillitis, which floors me. I'm a 44 yr old woman who's been crying in bed with a bobble hat on as the pain has been that brutal. I'm gutted too, as i've not had it in over 20 years and then twice in the last year. We call these sicknesses "Nursery Snots", anyone with children will get it. I'm on the mend, but as soon as i feel better my husband bets sick and of course, he's worse than i ever was. Are you the one in the house who looks after everyone else when sick... But no-one looks after you? Sound familiar? Anyway, moan over. I'm going to buy Roman a toy kitchen. He's trashing our kitchen daily and i think he'll love it, time to dust of Facebook marketplace... And to think i refused to even look at it a couple of years ago. It's literally a mum's best friend for toys and toddler activities. Reach out below, would be great to hear from you and i hope you chose to give me a follow and subscribe on the platform you listen on.

#57 Guest Speaker Toni Mackenzie Hypnotherapist & Life coach

Ep. 57
I started Networking again just a couple of weeks ago. Networking is always something i've really benefitted from, from a business and personal perspective. It's been a very long time since I put myself out there again, especially as I'm now a Mum and working in a completely different area. I made new new connections and re-connected with old connections and it felt great. I was over the moon too, to see Toni again too. Toni is a lady who i have always admired and respected, she's genuine and sincere and incredibly good at what she does. From sharing my own hurdles on my journey to Motherhood, i knew that Toni had experienced similar hurdles and curve balls. I also knew that she had written a book. But it wasn't until we met again that i knew the true extent to her expertise and what the driving force was behind her success. Toni shares her story from Air Hostess to married mother, to homeless single parent to career woman. Toni is honest and raw, she shares her story from the heart and is a huge inspiration for anyone who's world collapses around them, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. She is living proof.Now a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, Counsellor, EFT-Tapping Therapist, NLP Practitioner, RTT Practitioner, Life Coach Toni shares her story in this incredible episode and how she is now helping so many people from all walks of life, to be happy and fulfilled. Please connect with Toni below, plus you can access her book on Amazon, or through her website below.

#55 Out with the Self doubt

Ep. 55
My coldest swim yet. If you've listened to previous episodes, you'll new about my new venture in cold water swimming. Last weekend was my coldest swim yet and a huge emotional release. I blubbed all the way home in the car, it was a mix of joy, relief and realisation. I've been letting that little nasty worm "self doubt" creep its way in for far too long and in the freezing cold water I started to get my power back. Since becoming a mum, I have 100% felt different and in ways which i never imagined. I have felt stupid, worthless, unappealing and had huge mental blocks. Felt i wasn't as quick witted, not as fun and said some really nasty stuff to myself. Its not just motherhood that can lead us to behave like this. There are other junctions that can casue the self doubt to worm its way in, but my driving message behind this episode, is that "you've still got it". You're still there, but sometimes you ahve to step out of that comfort zone to get YOU back to YOU. "i've still got it.... it never left me". Hope you enjoy this episode. Reach out on the links below. i always love a good reach ou.

#54 Guest Speaker Rachel Cruickshank Somatic Therapist

Ep. 54
"Get back in your body" I keep hearing these words over and over again at present, on instagram reels, lives, podcasts and reading them in books. But what does is bloody mean? I'm not afraid to ask questions about something i don't know, gone are the days where i would fake the truth and pretend to be savvy on all subjects just to fit in. I'm embracing my innocence on new subjects and just seeing it as an opportunity to learn. Through my own findings i have paired them to the work of 'Somatic Healing'. But whats that? If you are a regular listener to this podcast, then you will be familiar wiht my new found love of cold water swimming. And it was through connections at the lake where i heard Rachel's name and the work that she does. Rachel Cruickshank is a Somatic Therapist. I started following her on Instagram and was hooked on her daily movement reels. What was she doing? Could this benefit me? Could it help me to conceive? In this episode, Rachel shares her expertise on the SOMA method, bow her work is to help unlock people from their bodies and give them the key. She is incredibly passionate in helping both men and women to activate and awaken themselves. Rachel combines all areas of her expertise to bring you transformation and activation on every single layer of your being. This is a real eye opener into something that has slowly found me, as i had no idea what Somatics were 12 months ago and wasn't intentionally looking for it. I hope you enjoy this episode and reach out to Rachel on socials below.Plus, if you would like to be a guest speaker on the podcast and are keen to share your success, expertise, stories with the World... scroll down and message me below.
