There are key moments in life (like when we decide what to study, whether to say ‘yes’ to the job, whether to get married, whether to have children, whether to buy the house, etc.) that I believe ask us to pause, challenge ourselves and inquire: “Is this really what I want? Or is this what I think I want based on the paradigms I grew up with, what was modelled to me by the people close to me, the beliefs I have adopted, someone else’s wishes I’ve internalised, what society te
Today I’m excited to share with you a revelation about time (and how we can improve our relationship with it) I had last Friday, at the end of a solo-parenting week.

One of the most common sentiments I hear from clients on our first call is something along these lines: “I don’t recognise my life anymore” “Is this really my life right now?” “How did I get here?”
