Meet me on the M53

In this episode, we're talking about catastrophising on purpose! Instead of trying to shrug off the fear we feel - what would happen if you blew up the fear to the worst-case scenario? You might find that it's not as bad as you think it's going to be.  What's the worst that could happen?  Contact Fay - Rebekah - Thank you to Jon at Wahhoo Media for our production:

Meet me on the M53

In this episode, we explore the skill or art of listening.  We look at how we listen - and whether we listen on all levels. Do we listen to respond; listen with presence; or listen to everything that's going on including the non-verbal clues, i.e. listening with our eyes too.

And do we hold ourselves back if we don't think we know enough? Contact Fay - Rebekah - Thank you to Jon at Wahhoo Media for our production:
