The snowdrops are a reminder to me of this wonderful quote by John O’Donoghue – “The sacred duty of being an individual is to gradually learn how to live so as to awaken the eternal within you.”
Teenage mental health – the stats are frightening…. but are they actually telling the whole story? At a school conference Liz Scott heard a psychologist and a paediatric neurologist speaking. Maybe there is a simple answer after all
We are not in control. Forget the pointless exercise of trying to fix you thoughts or moods. When I saw this Icelandic glacier I was reminded that something far greater than I is behind this thing called life!
What happens when we slow down to the rhythm of life and dance at Nature’s pace – enjoying the ebbs and flows of the seasons as the plants and animals do
Don’t expect to be happy all the time. It’s just not part of the design of being human. In this article Liz Scott explores the huge spectrum of emotions that accompany the human experience and she shows how ALL emotions are perfectly normal.
In 2018 we’re sharing a fresh new take on mental health. One that puts the spotlight on our inbuilt resilience and wellbeing. A recent visit to Falmouth and memories of a suicide strengthened my resolve to spread this message of hope

We went kayaking the other day. I was rather reluctant. I’d booked a day out on the river Dart as a Christmas present. Back in December when I emailed the kayaking instructor, it had seemed a romantic notion. Me, Stu and the river Dart – what more could we want?
As dusk beckons I feel a glimmer of anticipation. An old paradigm of psychology is coming to a close and a new psychological dawn is awakening.
Rather than become suffocated by the cycle of fear-mongering news I turn my attention to the compassion and courage of those who helped others at the scene. The countless acts of love as strangers reached out to those in need.
I wanted to escape, the last thing I wanted was to start any kind of connection with a wierdo, yet here was Stu extending a hand of friendship with a drunk stranger. My head swirled with ‘what if’ thoughts
How my coaching has changed since I proudly hung that diploma up in 2004.
Don’t waste your time with resolutions – look within instead
Do you ever talk to your clients about spirituality? Is it the role of a coach to do that?
I’ve set myself a challenge. To write and publish a book in 100 days. Day one started on 30th October. Every time I think of the challenge I feel a twinge of nervousness – have I bitten off more than I can chew?
Are you a soul-searcher or soul-surfer. There’s a big difference!
Ever had a grumpy parrot sitting on your shoulder telling you how bad life is? Me too!
Liz Scott reflects on a recent walk on Dartmoor that lit up her passion for life
There was something dead and smelly on the beach and Buzz was rolling in it. I yelled against the Atlantic gales and ran towards him.
Imagine being on the Atlantic, onboard a tiny boat in the middle of storm; I bet it is terrifying. All that is between you, the wild elements and certain death is a thin shell of fibreglass.
As I stood on the cliff tops with Buzz, drinking in the view of the Salcombe estuary, I felt full to bursting with gratitude.
I love watching the canoeists on the Erme there is something hypnotising about their concentration and skill as they manoeuvre down a fast flowing river. However the other day I had a shock when I saw a kayaker struggle in the water.

Being a trainer is a real privilege and it’s when I become incredibly present to the Three Principles in action. I notice when I feel angry, happy, excited, frustrated and all the other range of emotions that we are blessed to experience as humans. I might temporarily get pulled off track from my centre, but when I notice I can refocus.
This is a blog from Christmas – but it’s still relevant
The other day I was fuming.The day had started with me feeling grumpy. It was an early alarm, I hadn’t slept well and a long car journey lay ahead of me. I gave monosyllabic answers to my husband and headed out of the door wishing I could have another hour of sleep.
The ferns are changing colour. I noticed a golden edging to the leaves on my walk today. Soon this will spread until all of Dartmoor hillsides are ablaze with orange
How important are the tools and techniques of coaching? It’s a question that I’ve been mulling over recently.
The second brood of swallow chicks took their first flight outside yesterday. We had seen them practise between garage rafters and then in the morning they took the plunge from garage to garden.
I was walking at dusk last night when a buzzard glided just above the tree-tops of the lane. My heart always beats faster when I see a buzzard. As it soundlessly disappeared from view I felt the tingle of gratitude and awe at sharing this moment in time.
I love walking through the woods. Buzz (the labradoodle) gallops through the leaves trying to catch squirrels; a never ending whirlwind of energy on a fruitless mission.
A walk in the wild winds and driving rain suited me today. As I pushed through the gusts that whipped and ripped at my hood, I was able to focus on taking one step at a time.
What has the Three Principles got to do with a compass? Let me explain by sharing two things I love. The first is the National Park of Dartmoor and the second is my love of the 3Ps.

Do you remember ‘The Secret”? Back in 2006 this short film (and then book) was launched and it became a huge talking point. I bought the book and the video in the hope that I too could learn ‘The Secret’. The concept of ‘The Secret’ is that you first need to ‘ask’ for...
