March 27, 2018 | Sue Lester

If you feel stressed by the people at work, you’re not alone. Perhaps this was even one of the strong motivators for you setting up your own business? The American Institute of Stress found 28% of work stress was ‘people issues’ and 46% ‘workload’, which also has a people element to it. The Australian Psychological Society’s […]

March 22, 2018 | Theresa Miller

Diversity and inclusion in the work place is not just a ‘nice-to-have’ factor – it’s a crucial catalyst for boosting profits and productivity. Research shows that diverse teams are more creative, innovative, deliver better returns and have higher employee retention rates. According to the British advertising consultant, Cindy Gallop: “Homogeneity is the enemy of creativity. […]



If it’s to be, it’s up to me

March 20, 2018 | Caryn Walsh

Swinging into Action for a fabulous life ahead 2018. New year. Well almost, given that we are already in March. But that doesn’t matter.  Every day is new. Every new day gives you the chance to start again. Refreshed, new. I hear so many women talking about what they want to change in their lives.  […]



Are You Struggling With Someone Who Procrastinates?

March 6, 2018 | Kylie Warry

Patient communicators… can struggle with procrastination.  Patient Communicators are more laid back, reserved, introverted people.  They love others but can struggle to speak up, and have a fear of conflict. In strength, this steady gentle style is one that is warm, welcoming, all about relationship and somewhat more reserved than the playful or powerful styles. […]

February 23, 2018 | Sue Lester

Know it is possible to turn him back into that stud-muffin you fell in love with! My WNA blog post “Introducing Your […]



Are Your Money Habits Causing Your Stress?

February 21, 2018 | Eleanor Crosby

With the start of a new year I thought it was timely to discuss ‘money worries’ as they are now listed as one of the leading causes for women suffering stress and depression. Whilst there are many things that trigger financial stress and we all are affected differently, the most common are carrying bad debt, […]



Picking Up The Pieces

February 7, 2018 | Caryn Walsh

You have two choices when your life is not working – you can either let life get on top of you and become depressed and find it hard to get back up or you can acknowledge to yourself that you are going through a hard time and that life is difficult right now, but it will […]



Time to Reflect on The Year That Was…

December 15, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

As the year draws near to an end, it is not uncommon for me to hear my clients lamenting the fact that another year is over and they still are not …..[fill in the blank: rich / happy/ thin / successful/ married …..] As with other facets of life, we humans find it more natural […]



Don’t Ever Roll Over!

December 11, 2017 | Caryn Walsh

You know the scenario.  You apply for the job, but don’t get it.  You try your hand at a new hobby, but don’t feel you ‘have what it takes.’  Netball or soccer used to be your thing but now you think you’re too old. The truth is that if you feel you are too old, […]
