Depression does not define you

By | 2016, Depression, Uncategorized | No Comments

A friend of mine was hosting a number of young people recently who were visiting for a 21st birthday party. At breakfast the following day, the students were openly chatting about hangovers, relationships and many topics relevant to their generation. Eventually the conversation moved towards their state of mind. What truly shocked and saddened me when I heard this recount, was that a vast majority of these party-goers were currently being prescribed anti-depressants. When I mentioned this in a later…

6 Tips to Deal With Anger

By | Anger, Coping Strategies, Emotional Intelligence, Uncategorized | No Comments

Have you ever been in a situation where you regret ‘oversharing’ your emotions? We all too often hear of the importance of expressing our feelings and letting others know how we feel. And then when we do – lo and behold – we sometimes get frowned upon for being too candid. I truly feel that our emotions are a part of who we are. Being able to express them freely is an important part to maintaining our own wellbeing. Take…

Do you ever think that you’re not good enough? Perhaps you doubt your own abilities? Maybe you find yourself avoiding certain situations? If any of your answers are ‘yes’, then it’s likely you could be lacking in confidence. What is confidence ? When you think of a confident person – what picture do you conjure up in your head ? a strong leader, a bubbly person – happy in their own skin, a prolific public speaker, your favourite celebrity, someone…

OK! So it’s manic out there. I am yet to see the tussles over the last bag of sprouts – but it’s getting close. We’re all out shopping – trying to spot bargains for things that we don’t even want.  If you looked at my laptop, you’d see three open windows : a ) An upmarket clothes store – offering 70% off knitwear – and I have 3 items in the basket ( I don’t even like the colours )…

Cai Graham : Allow Me to Introduce Myself

By | 2015, Biography, My Story, Uncategorized, video, Youtube | No Comments

I am told, that as a coach and an entrepreneur, it is important to tell your story. By doing so, the reader can relate to you as a person and can understand your own trials and tribulations. When we share our story with one another – we appear more approachable somehow, more human.   I’d be surprised if you didn’t already know about Oprah’s backstory and the fact that Richard Branson’s dyslexia was an issue, though he didn’t allow it to hold…

Take responsibility and realise your dreams

In this final blogpost in the “Jack Canfield Trilogy” I am discussing the last characteristic that the majority of high achievers appear to adopt – and that is taking 100% responsibility for themselves and their actions. To refresh, Jack identified the other two traits that very successful people seem to possess – that the everyday person seems to lack – as being : Unusual clarity ( which I first discussed ) Powerful habits of success ( last week’s topic ) You either create…

As many of you know by now – I am a great fan of Jack Canfield. Last week’s blog post was based on a principle that he was discussing at a recent seminar I attended. That principle being that high achievers have a number of characteristics that make them more successful than most. Jack identified those characteristics as being : Unusual clarity ( which I discussed last week ) Powerful habits of success ( this week’s topic ) 100% responsibility…

Happy New Year!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As we close the door on the ‘old’ and welcome in the ‘new’, I am pausing to reflect on 2014. It has been a good year. Not least, as I qualified as an NLP & TimeLine Therapy Practitioner and launched The Mind Model. What NLP has taught me is that you get nowhere sitting on your butt feeling sorry for yourself blaming ‘circumstances’ for your life and resulting frame of mind.
