In our busy, busy lives our heads can quickly become filled with the white noise of our list of musts, shoulds, and shouldn’ts.  No matter how much is ticked off your To Do list, there’s always more. There’s that underlying, nagging feeling that you should be able to do it all, you should be enough, […]

There are five little words that can magically free you, and heal hurt-based resentment.

Forget About ‘Losing’ Weight And Think Yourself Slim Instead

April 18, 2017 | Sue Lester

Christmas has well gone, and if those extra kilos are still hanging on, like the ones from the year before, you’re probably feeling not quite so fabulous right now.   And have you noticed, the less fabulous you feel, the more you criticise yourself, the more you reach for comfort food or drink?

March 10, 2017 | Sue Lester

#BeBoldForChange is the 2017 International Women’s Day (and beyond) theme, but how do you step up and take bold action for change, if you don’t feel bold inside?

No Need To Dread Christmas

December 8, 2016 | Sue Lester

If you’re not feeling the Christmas spirit, it’s OK, and you are perfectly normal!  The imagery we see in Australia of what Christmas ‘should’ be is based on the American commercial ideal, and bears very little connection to reality.  (Especially the snowy bit!) Unfortunately, many see the huge gap between the glossy imagery of blithely […]
