Presentation: Turning Your Difficult Conversations Into Positive, Problem-Solving Experiences

  • I’ve got to talk to him about his attitude.
  • I’m not looking forward to the committee meeting. 
  • My neighbour’s dogs never stop barking; I’m going to have to talk to her. 
  • I was wrong, I’ve got to apologise. 
  • OMG!  I’ve got that awkward client this afternoon.  

A difficult conversations is anything you find it hard to talk about. So, what to do?  Avoid or confront?  Whatever, you will probably be anxious and stressed as you make up your mind. 

This workshop explores what makes conversations difficult, why we avoid them, and why we often handle them badly.  It applies to how we deal with children, parents, landlords, tenants, clients, customers, friends, team members, patients, employees, your boss and colleagues of any kind.

We will consider the tools for effectively engaging in a difficult conversation.  The outcome will give you the confidence to turn future difficult conversations into positive outcomes”.  

Presentation: Mining For Values

“Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.”

Mary Oliver

There is so much clarity in recognising what matters to us most, and recognising how that looks and feels in ‘real life’.

Discovering our values is a starting point for defining how we want to feel and what we want to create in our lives. Also the places where we are acting from obligation, from ‘shoulds’, ‘oughts’ and ‘have tos’.

You are cordially invited to come and explore what matters most to you in a reflective, friendly space – this session will be interactive, pragmatic, and immediately applicable to your life.

The session will also include a light overview of Dr Brené Brown’s research into courage and vulnerability.

Presentation: Connection First

Inside out parenting from the heart, not the head.

We can never have an amazing relationship with our children when we lose connection.

It is so easy to lose the way with our child or parent by following the wrong advise no matter how well meaning it may be. We all have our own innate spark, our wisdom, that will guide us through the storms of parenting.

By learning to parent from the inside out, not the outside in we can reconnect and become a family once again.

MotivationThe rules of motivation – A Life Clubs Workshop hosted by Jane Steed

We are born motivated – we teach ourselves to walk and talk and we naturally learn and want to advance forward. But, as time goes on, fear, doubt and laziness creep in. It’s only when you have discovered what motivates you that you’ll be able to stay on track of your goals.

Although each of us intuitively knows our motivational toolkit, once you have found it consciously you’ll be able to access it whenever you want. Our Get Going workshop will teach you how to find your innate motivational tools and the self-talk that works for you, enabling you to achieve whatever it is you want.

Each of us has unique tools that keep us motivated. This workshop will enable you to learn how different we all are and what drives you on.


  • Finding what has worked for you in the past
  • Learning the ‘self talk’ which suits you

Negative Thinking‘There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so’
William Shakespeare

Does your inner critic say you’re not good enough?

inner critic reinforces this with “You’re going to be found out!”

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you had complete self-belief?
