Overcome Fear of Being Seen

Have you ever got yourself ready to post something on social media – and then thought twice about revealing something about yourself? Wanted to record a video or a Facebook Live and then found a hundred other things to do instead, like make a cup of tea, empty the dishwasher, decide the lighting isn’t right, or that your hair isn’t quite good enough today – talk yourself out of recording and sharing your message? I know I have. And that’s what I want to talk with you about today. I want you to know that the fear of being visible is normal.  We all feel that in various degrees and in different situations. The menopausal years can effect our confidence and self esteem. Fear of being visible can be the very thing that robs you of your dreams, your happiness and the life you know you’re meant to live.   I’ve put together a free workbook for you ‘How To Overcome The Fear Of Being Visible’. Inside I’ll reveal to you: Why we feel fear to be visible Coaching questions to ask yourself How to overcome the fear And how to receive empowering messages from your female ancestors Download your free workbook here. Please message me and let me know which pieces of the workbook you’ve resonated with and what you’re going to do differently as a result. You are born into this time for a reason. You are here to make a difference, to be a role model for change, to share your ‘you-ness’, your important message – and we want to hear you. Sending love from sunny Paphos, where I am this week!

Feeling Invisible In Midlife

I mentioned a few weeks ago about the challenges that many midlife women say they face, which is beginning to feel like they are ‘invisible’.  I’ve had some really interesting emails back from ladies on my email list and some vary from the feeling of being ‘invisible’ – to the fear of being ‘visible’. I’ve put together a detailed guide for you – ‘From Invisibility In Midlife to Feeling Good & Standing Out!’ or for short ‘The Midlife Visibility Breakthrough’.  This is particularly for you, if you’re finding yourself feeling ‘invisible’ from time to time. You’ll find my guidance, questions to ask yourself and practical exercises to support you to regain your confidence and shine brightly in any situation. Click here to read and download your copy of the guide. When we are in the midst of the menopausal years with the various hormonal symptoms we experience in our bodies – and the big changes at home that often happen at this time of our lives, it’s no wonder you can forget how blooming amazing and valuable you are and instead feel like you’re melting into the background. I’d love to hear your feedback on ‘The Midlife Visibility Breakthrough’ – so please message me via email or send me a message on Facebook and let me know! Have a great week! Much love Ali xx        

Regained baking confidence!

Seriously I got a cake bakey kinda thing going on over here… To be honest it’s not just cakes… I can’t seem to stop cooking! 😂 When my girls became vegan and preferred to cook their own delights and then they flew the nest, I stopped baking and cooking almost completely and I lost confidence in my ability to rustle something up. I wonder if that resonates? Now Andrew and I live together, I’ve found my passion for all things baking and cooking has come back – and it’s such a joy to cook for someone who appreciates my experiments! He’s very generous, often scoring me marks well over 10/10, which makes me giggle 🙏🌟🤣. I made this cake this afternoon in between organising my market research calls and my coursework. What a treat for my man who’s been away for a few days!

Feeling lost?

I am an empty nester, peri-menopausal and a woman in business myself, if you’re like me, then I know many of the challenges we face. The day this picture was taken, I was hosting a workshop in Mayfair, London as my daughter Anna was flying to India to work at a permaculture farm in the foothills of the Himalayas. We love our grown children who we’ve brought the up to be independent and resilient and then the time comes to give them the space to fly (metaphorically or not!). As loving mama’s it’s only natural to have bitter sweet emotions, even to feel lost. ⠀⠀ I’m passionate about helping women to embrace this time in their lives and for them to fly (metaphorically or literally) once again! If you’d like to have a chat with me to see how I maybe able to help you – connect with me through my website.

I’ve been a professional coach for almost 10 years and from time to time, it’s important for me to perform some market research activities. If you enjoy my posts, will you please help me? . I’d loved to speak with you if you’re an empty nester or with no children at home, in your late 40’s or 50’s, with a business or hold a desire to start one… maybe you feel you’ve lost your spark or you’re feeling less confident than you used to… You want more in your life but feel stuck for some reason… Or maybe you’re happier than you’ve ever been! I’d love to hear from you so I can ask you some questions that will really help me – and possibly you too. Please send me a message and I’ll be in touch to arrange a time to speak. Thank you so much lovely! 🙏 If there’s time on the call, I’ll be happy to help you with any challenge you’re facing. [* In case you were wondering or feeling wary this is NOT a sales call. It’s a genuine request for market research help.]
