But 'Strictly' finished more than two months ago, which in tabloid terms, is a life-time. Which means that the press release we sent out for our comedy web-series 'Sally the Life Coach' was largely ignored. This therefore means, when it comes to doing press for our show, I need to, uh, do it all myself. So here goes...

In this age of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. we are increasingly living our lives through the eyes (and comments) of other people. Have you ever stopped to think about how and what this means to you on a personal, emotional level? If someone 'Likes' your post does that give you a boost? Is your sense of self dependent on how many virtual 'friends' or re-tweets you have?

Say No to Being Anyone But Yourself in 2014

Ask 5 people to tell you the 10 things they think you're really great at. Paint it loud and proud and don't brush it off. In there lies to the clue to what you'd be good at, and again, you might not be doing it in your day job.

Do You Know When You Are in Need of a Coach?

Maggie Currie | Posted 05.02.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Maggie Currie

I have been on both sides of that argument, and I know exactly what I am talking about. I have been there, I have resisted being coached. I have been coaching for many years and successfully changed the lives of lots of people, both male and female, young and old. But, and this is a big BUT, I resisted being coached myself because my ego kept telling me that I was okay, I was 'fine'.

Life Has Lessons for Us Every Day

Maggie Currie

I have learned a tremendous amount since training to be a coach and being a coach. I have learned a lot about me in the process. I learned so much about myself that I didn't know, or if I did know I was not aware of it. A lot had been stuffed down inside somewhere, and I have managed to excavate and find it.

Five Reasons You Are Still Single

Annie Ashdown | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Annie Ashdown

You never step back and take a look inside yourself and ponder your shortcomings, instead you minimise, alter or deny them. You are not vigorously honest with yourself. You never pause and observe your behaviour without judgement. You are too busy taking everyone else's inventory, yet not willing to take your own.

Are You Losing Your Mind?

Louise Presley-Turner

Being able to think has great advantages as it helps us function and live our lives. But it's not always an un-mitigating blessing. Our thoughts can trap us if we're not careful. If you find yourself thinking too much about the past you can wind up feeling regretful, sad and guilty.

I put the phone down, turned off my computer, picked up my bag and walked. I got in the lift, left the building and got onto the tube home. It was 3.30pm and I'd just walked out of a well-paid advertising agency role where I was respected.

Finding the Success in Rejection

Without even thinking about how we are approaching life we often take the route that keeps us feeling secure and protected. Many people just keep things the way they are because they are familiar. Our brains like familiar - familiar feels safe.

Are You Burnt Out?

Louise Presley-Turner

Always racing from one task to the next, but accomplish very little? Sound familiar? Most days I'm incessantly striving for a clean loo, disinfected worktops, a clear inbox, a flatter tummy, school gate acceptance and career success. Sometimes I just want to stop the clock.

Want to Know the Secret of Attracting More Love, Luck and Abundance?

Louise Presley-Turner | Posted 19.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Louise Presley-Turner

As a coach what I have come to realise is just how little self worth people actually have for themselves. Most people don't even like themselves, let alone love themselves. Maybe it's their shyness, their figure, their behaviour, their looks, their neediness or inability to say no. I think it's fair to say most of us have something we dislike about ourselves.

The more you 'try' in the world of mind the more you cement the problem as being real and it's never anywhere near as real as you think it is nor does it remotely matter where the problem came from or what caused it in the first place, you are only ever one thought away from being well again.

In the age of social media we have 24-7 access to everyone else's "highlight reel", we get to see our friends' latest holiday photos to sunny Barbados. It's so easy to compare ourselves and then feel bad and judge ourselves about where we are based on what we see others doing. It's exhausting.

The career advice that they are given at these events from strong successful women often centres around learning what gets the attention of male bosses, competing in a mans world and being more confident. This is all sound advice and may even help you to be viewed as one of the boys, but is that what we really want?
