I’ve launched a new online course with my colleague Linda Mackay called The Sustainable Life: Strategies to Manage the Overwhelm of a Busy life.
Through this 4-week online course we’re offering resources and practical steps to get off the treadmill of over-busyness and find new ways to create a more manageable pace of life.

Happy 2018! I’m excited to be collaborating with my colleague Jennifer Jennings, psychotherapist, to offer an in-person workshop in Stratford, Ontario on Saturday, February 3rd.

I am excited to offer two short workshops this fall for my co-tenants at Innovation Works, a co-working space for social entrepreneurs in London, Ontario.
These Career Tune-Up sessions are an opportunity to reflect on an aspect of career well-being, discuss ideas with colleagues, apply helpful concepts and frameworks to one’s own career goals and growth, and choose a next step for personal and professional development.
The October Career Tune-Up focuses on career skills: transferable skills, technical skills, and some career management skills to feel confident, current, and adaptable. We’ll do personal skills inventories that will illuminate and validate our strengths and generate ideas for future skills development.
In November, we’ll discuss career support systems. The breadth and depth of supportive connections can influence the pace of career growth as well as one’s sense of career satisfaction. For the “tune-up”, we’ll explore steps to cultivate an energizing support network and foster positive, practical relationships to better navigate career ups and downs. This includes reviewing various types of career support, formal and informal, and exploring the key elements of a healthy career support system.
Contact me if your workplace is interested in a lunch and learn Career Tune-Up session!
I’m facilitating a new workshop with my colleague and friend Linda Mackay, psychotherapist, to explore how to handle competing priorities and multiple responsibilities and avoid overwhelm. What might it take to find a more manageable and enjoyable pace of life?
Join us if you are looking for a way to step off the busy-ness treadmill. In the 3-hour workshop, Linda and I will guide a discussion of how to move from self-blame and exhaustion to greater insight and practical strategies for a more sustainable life. The workshop involves a mix of presentation, group discussion, and self-reflection exercises. We’ll provide a workbook of ideas and resources.

I am excited to be collaborating with Linda MacKay, psychotherapist and co-owner of The Space Within, a wonderful centre in Stratford, Ontario for complimentary health related therapies and treatments, as well as for a diverse scope of personal development workshops, meditation sessions, and yoga classes.
We are developing a new workshop titled The Sustainable Life: Strategies to Manage the Overwhelm of a Busy Life. The workshop will be an exploration of how to move from self-blame and exhaustion to greater insight and practical strategies for a more sustainable pace of life. We’re preparing discussion points and exercises that dive into the glamorization of busy, the power of self-compassion, and conscious prioritizing.
Stay tuned for the announcement about the date (early April) and registration!
The symposium was a free 3-day event that brought together artists in the Hamilton area for professional development.
My workshop was an interactive session about designing a career support system for creative pursuits. We explored various types of career support, the key elements of a healthy career support system, and also shared tips for authentic outreach and relationship building. Thanks to all the participants for an enriching discussion!

Two workshops remain in my new 3-part workshop series for freelancers, artists, therapists and other “solopreneurs” in the Stratford, Ontario area. They are on March 6th and 20th. In this video I describe all 3 sessions (the 1st was on Feb. 20th) and invite you to join in!
In addition to my two upcoming workshops in Toronto, I’m facilitating a 3-part workshop series for freelancers, “solopreneurs” and artists in Stratford, Ontario in February and March. The focus of the workshops is to develop career skills for solo self-employment. The 3 Friday afternoon sessions address:
- Vision & Self-Motivation (Feb. 20th): Get clear on what you will do, won’t do, and might do (and why) by imagining your business as a reflection of you and your values.
- Learning Curves & Challenges (March 6th): Assess the challenges you’re facing, how you respond to setbacks, and how you measure results so you can give yourself space to learn from mistakes and time to acquire new skills.
- Support Systems (March 20th): Identify who you want and need on your team, how can you find “your people”, and the importance of meetings even when you work on your own. Be self-employed without the burdensome belief that you must also be self-sufficient.
There are two perks for those who register by February 12th: a $25 discount when you sign up for the whole series and also the option of a 1/2 price private coaching session as a follow-up in April. See all the details and register here.
