Hello everyone

Come and meet like-minded people in a relaxing venue on Thursday 28 January 5.30pm – 7.30pm at the Coaching Café!

Located at:

The Lamb & Flag, Canonstown’s Snug Bar (close to St Erth train station)n at 5.30pm – 7.30pm. It’s aimed for people when they finish work, so it’s fine to pop in when you can during the evening (payment is in advance)

The Coaching Cafe event is only £5 to attend and includes a complimentary coffee/tea/juice/wine: take your pick!. It is hosted by me, Stacey (Halfyard), professionally qualified people development specialist and coach.

As well as a themed people development discussion, I’m available for a free coaching consultation after the event, if required.

Come and join us…

January’s discussion will be entitled ‘ New Year New You’.

How did you get on with your resolutions?

Did you want to:

  •  Lose weight ?
  • Give up cigarettes ?
  • Throw away the biscuit tin ?
  • Start going to the gym?
  •  Start a new job?

Have a discussion about your resolutions in a friendly, informal and relaxing setting. Discover how to make your resolutions more successful and more lasting; also what to avoid when you phrase your resolutions. Includes tips and handouts. As mentioned before, the £5 fee includes a coffee/tea/juice/wine; some of us buy ourselves a delicious snack/main course too!

Booking essential as spaces strictly limited.

All good wishes

Wellbeing Coaching for 2016 and beyond

wellbeing - improved health and confidence

Wellbeing Coaching for 2016 and beyond.

After the excesses of the Christmas and New Year it got me thinking about how l can offer more coaching and mentoring to people wishing to :

  • lose weight
  • wanting to stop smoking
  • wanting to do more exercise
  • and eat a  healthier diet

The above comes under the category of ‘physical wellbeing’.   Coaching offers a more permanent change towards how you wish your life to be.  Rather than giving things up ie cakes, chocolates biscuits etc , you’re saying how you wish to eat  ie more balanced food groups, healthier eating habit choices, less guilt about ‘bad’ foods, realistic weight goals (about what would make you feel happier and more in control in your life).

l have also been helping people, through coaching and mentoring to help with emotional wellbeing issues that affect personal and business lives ; for example feeling more confidence,  stress management strategies  and working with a more positive attitude with issues like depression, anxiety and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

Whatever the New Year changes you want, contact me to arrange a personalised coaching programme to help you lead a more balanced happier and positive life. See my Wellbeing and WorkLife Balance page for more details

New goal and habits



I haven’t blogged for a while and I realise this has become a bad habit.

I often think things like ‘Oh I could blog about that’ and then I forget to do anything about it. Life just goes on with all the priorities and distractions.

But what if I made a decision a commitment to change just a small part of my life?  Like my clients?

So here is my challenge to myself. 

  • I will blog twice a week for the next three months.
  • I will keep a notebook in my handbag to make notes of what I’m going to blog about.

It is said that a habit takes between 21 – 30 days to set up.  I am always telling my clients that, so now I am telling myself the same thing.

Another thing I ask my clients is what they are going to REWARD themselves with when they achieve their actions?

My answer is simple: to get out in the sun and enjoy a sorbet (I have cut out dairy for six months, but that’s another story!)

I hope you may also set up a challenge for yourself and that we can compare notes!
