It's taken some trials (and some errors, of course) and I'm now ready to offer coaching walks. Here, writer Rebecca Ann Smith explains what she got from being coached in nature...

"Something about walking and talking at the same time is very freeing – I’ve oft...

It's taken me a while to properly notice how much better being in nature can make me feel. A lot of my childhood memories are about being outdoors, full of the wonders of water, plants and insects. As David Whyte writes in The Three Marriages, "Adults seemed to have fo...

This month it's been three years since I left my job to go freelance - a decision that took almost as long to make. It was a decision that was well worth every agonising moment.

During that time I've coached many other freelancers, and have kept refining how I...

Earlier this summer I found myself at a theme park, celebrating my son’s birthday.  These places have changed very little in some ways since I last visited one about 25 years ago.  But the rides seem to have got bigger and a whole lot scarier.  The roller coasters aren...

I really enjoyed Gretchen Rubin’s account of the year she spent working out how to be happier.  Her realisation that “the days are long, but the years are short” led her to take a very organised, well-researched and practical approach to the tricky objective of increas...

Every day, since January 17, I have taken a picture of a tree.  I’m not completely sure why, except that the small act of pausing and appreciation enhances my day somehow, and watching Spring’s arrival definitely helped with the darker months of Winter.  As William Bla...
