LifeWork™ : Creating Meaning in your work and living a meaningful life
Most of us at some time face change in our lives which makes us question what we’re doing or why.
Most of us want to be the best we can be.
LifeWork coaching helps people in times of uncertainty to manage change and adapt to new circumstances.
Personal and professional growth occurs most readily when people are open to focusing on their inner motivations and inhibitors; how they treat both themselves and others; and the set of values and assumptions that they live and work by.
LifeWork offers you the chance to step back and define how you want to make a difference, understand what really matters to you, and how you want to move forwards.
LifeWork coaching provides a positive, supportive and confidential context for this to happen.

- What Andy Murray teaches us about self-doubt and its role in our success or failure September 14, 2012
A fascinating article by Dr Raj Persaud illustrating the difference between a lack of self-confidence and an abundance of self-doubt.
“Andy Murray’s historic victory appears founded on a mental rather than a physical transformation. Commentators, plus the tennis star himself, have been discussing how his previously hindering self-doubt appears to have been finally conquered.
Many attribute this new self-confidence to his recent Olympic gold medal victory over Roger Federer. It was positive feedback: confirmation of the ability we all knew he had, but did he?
Yet this just deepens the psychological enigma at the heart of this result. The cure for self-doubt appears a confidence-enhancing triumph – but you can’t win until you overcome your self-doubt.”

- Positive Thoughts May Help Treat Depression August 10, 2011

- “What We Have Here Is A Failure to Communicate” June 20, 2011
The AARP/NCCAM survey found that 50 percent of men and women reported using some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Of these, three-fourths used CAM to help prevent illness, and an equal number had turned to CAM to reduce pain or treat painful conditions. Clearly, there are good reasons why so many people are turning to CAMs as part of their efforts to stay healthy, treat health problems or both. But here is the catch: Fewer than one in three people who use CAM have discussed that use with their doctors. And even fewer turned to a CAM at the suggestion of their doctor.
Why is there such a gap? Nearly half of the survey respondents stated that their health care provider never asked them about their use of CAM. Another 60 percent of respondents said that:
There wasn’t enough time to talk about their use of CAM.
They didn’t think their doctors would know anything about CAM.
They thought their doctor would advise them to stop using CAM.
They just weren’t comfortable discussing CAM with their doctor.
