Ditch the New Year resolutions! 

How about just setting out to be the best you can be – for you in 2021!

Join us for a free motivational masterclass Thursday Jan 28th 7.30 pm Register Here

Instead of setting yourself a list of ideals to reach, it’s a lovely idea to choose a word to focus on, how do you want to feel this year? What can you begin/do more of/return to, in order to feel happy and thriving?

If you are considering giving up the booze (even if it’s just for Dy January) or if you do want to focus on optimum health and wellbeing underpinned by not drinking alcohol, then one mantra I repeat a fair bit is ‘Keep the Ritual Change the Ingredients’ – you definitely don’t want to feel deprived, and you don’t need to! There are so many options now for delicious alcohol-free drinks and we have some to give away in our competitions here if you’ve not entered yet then do so to be in with a chance of winning some brilliant prizes.

I have been sober now for three years and in the beginning when I finally caught sight of the ‘elephant in the room’ that was booze, I literally inhaled ‘quit lit’ and podcasts, but there wasn’t much that went beyond the ‘I’m sober… now what?’  

So, as you know I launched The Sober Club and my ‘Alcohol Free Life’ podcast and now I’m so excited to be launching my new book ‘Happy Healthy Sober’ which is out NOW in different ebook formats (paperback launches 11th February) which I hope will inspire others to look at their relationship with alcohol and ditch the booze to live their best life.

This book shares my story, gives a 30-day challenge (you don’t have to be at rock bottom to benefit from ditching the booze) and has a huge section on wellbeing, with some amazing expert contributors on topics such as nutrition, therapies, creativity, anxiety, the menopause, meditation, fitness, et al. The foreword is by the wonderful Denise Welch who was one of my podcast guests and has been so open about how she got sober and the impact it had on her clinical depression.

Thanks in advance to anyone who buys it, reviews it, recommends it, it really means a lot, it’s been a while since I’ve released a book, I’d forgotten what a ‘thing’ it is! Thanks to everyone who contributed and of course my amazing Sober Club members, some shared their tips and stories for the book too.

Cut and Paste a Fabulous 2021!

Heres a blog post re-jigged from a year ago. Still relevant for 2021!

I’ve been suggesting for a good while now that standard new year resolutions don’t really work, if you’ve already written your list and promised yourself you will lose weight, go to the gym, give up chocolate and alcohol and learn a new skill I wish you well but I’d love to recommend you take time out to visualise what you really want this year.

I was thrilled to see the article in You Magazine by Lydia Slater. She says ‘Forget new years resolutions and to-do lists, the smart way to realise your dreams is with a vision board. And if its good enough for Oprah..

A vision board (or it can be a scrapbook) is a combination of a mind-map and a collage, the idea is that you focus on what you want and allow your creative sub conscious mind to wander through images and phrases in magazines and newspapers, you can add your own photographs, postcards, drawings, anything that visually represents what you want to attract into your life.

Alongside business leaders, celebs love vision boards it seems, Lydia writes…’when Jim Carrey was at his lowest professional ebb, he reportedly used a vision board to jump-start his acting career, attaching to it a cheque made out to himself for $10 million for ‘acting services’. Oprah Winfrey made a vision board showing a picture of Barack Obama as president’  

What’s fascinating is how we seem to attract what we focus on, often we don’t really know what we want till we see a visual representation of it, our subconscious mind draws our attention to an image which makes us realise that is our deepest desire and by taking the action of cutting that picture out and sticking it onto a board we are setting the intention. It’s as if we are allowing an image of what we hope for to come to the forefront of our mind and then it’s much easier to attract that to us. It gives us clarity of what our goals and dreams are, the images, and words that we are attracted too are usually already somewhere deep down in our thoughts.

Don’t make the mistake of spending ten minutes on this though, my suggestion is that you switch off your phone, put on some relaxing music and give yourself at least 90 minutes uninterrupted time, gather all your bits and bobs before you start, a large piece of paper of card, lots of mags, newspapers, photos, plus scissors, glue, pens and crayons, even glitter and fabric if you want to get really creative. Don’t think for too long about each image, pick out what you are attracted too, you can then position the pictures however feels right, it may be totally random or ordered and colour coded. You can of course create a vision board (sometimes called a moodboard) on the computer too, but I think there’s something quite cathartic about cutting out images.

It can be quite magical what happens next. I have a colleague who wanted a complete change of direction, living in another country and working with her passion which was being a Tarot card reader.   She had no idea how she would get her dream but she started creating a vision book and literally stuck any images that appealed. One image was of a coastline, it was beautiful and an unusual shape, she had no idea where in the world it was, another image was a photograph of her with her cards. Months later she got a call from an acquaintance suggesting she offer her services as a PA to a businesswoman in London, the entrepreneur wanted someone to live and work with her temporarily, she was then offered the position of moving to Spain to run the retreats the entrepreneur hosted, she jumped at the chance and arrived at her new home only to see her room overlooked the exact coastline she had ‘visioned’ It was in Deia Majorca. Some time later the entrepreneur decided to add Tarot readings to the list of extras for guests and my colleague was called upon to do her dream job!

My own experience was not quite so dramatic but highly amusing, I did a general vision board (I often recommend that my clients do one specifically for a business project) and amongst the usual offerings, pictures of our family on holiday, lovely beaches, some fabulous glittery images that represented success. I found myself unconsciously cutting out and sticking a picture of a scruffy black dog. When I showed the vision board to my kids they said ‘finally!!! They had wanted a dog for a long time but we have said no, it just doesn’t fit with our lives. Don’t get excited I told them, I don’t know why I was attracted to that image, we are NOT getting a dog, I found myself in the bizarre situation of wishing that what I had wished for wouldn’t materialise!

A few weeks later a neighbour appeared at the door with a dog on a lead, yes you’ve guessed it, the exact dog in the pic, meet my puppy she said, just wondered if the kids would like to take him for walks sometimes? Result! All the benefits of a pet with none of the responsibility.

They do say be careful what you wish for because your dreams just may come true!  Take some time and map out your dreams – I wish you a magical 2021

Making Big Life Changes with NLP

It’s official now, ‘NLP Practitioner’ is a real job title, read all about it here.

Over lockdown I’m pleased to say I trained in NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and I can’t tell you what a difference it’s made in my coaching work (I coach people around confidence, stepping into the spotlight, and of course health coaching and ditching the booze) but also in everyday life, I am much more patient with my kids and able to see things from their perspective too.

Lots of people have asked about the training so I wanted to share just how amazing I think Andy Coley and Jo Wilson are, they are the best in my book, because they really take time to ensure everything is explained fully, and once you get on board, you become part of their ‘NLP family’. Earlier in the year they won a Platinum Award.

I would highly appreciate it if you let them know I recommended you and use these links if you are booking onto their course.

If you are interested in training or doing some ‘core skills’ in NLP click here.

Several of my clients in The Sober Club have seen the potential for themselves for a new career in the future, some have done the core skills to help them in their workplace.

You may just want to get the New Year off to a good start in which case to get a taste of it all, check out their low cost workshop on January 22nd.

Honestly for me it was the 1 -1 coaching sessions. It gave me the tools I needed to deal with all the potential triggers. Book some time with Janey! I’m 50 days sober now and enjoying it. Never ever thought it possible.

D.M. London

I recently did a 4 week coaching programme with Janey and I have to say, I feel like I have been equipped with tools to really reshape my life. I made lots of notes and plan to read these over Xmas and implement all the suggestions she made. There were a couple of lightbulb moments and I realised that I have never really loved myself. From the outside, everyone would think I am super confident, however, all my insecurities and unhealthy patterns of behaviour all stem from this one thing. It is amazing what you can see when you stop drinking. I didn’t think I was one of those people who masked my emotions with booze, but now I look back, I probably did. Now, I have to deal with all these emotions with no booze to help me – it is very confronting. It has been a more challenging exercise than I thought it would be, however being part of the amazing Sober Club, and knowing that Janey is on hand with support – has given me the strength to keep going. I am already proud of what I have achieved so far (83 days today) and know that I will feel amazing and strong in a few more months.

“After getting confused with lots of conflicting advice I decided to book a Power Visioning Call with Janey. Should have done it sooner. Janey got straight to the point with concise questions that really made me think about how I want to get my message out there and, more importantly, who to.

I ended the call with a renewed enthusiasm and a marketing strategy that fits perfectly with my business method and is all very ‘doable’. Janey’s expertise and knowledge of marketing, together with her compassion and ability to understand what really matters, made the perfect combination for the most productive hour I have spent in a long while”

Spend 60 minutes with me and I’ll help you get clarity on your key messages and PR strategy. We’ll look at your current marketing and create a focus for exactly what you need to do to increase your visibility.

  • Help you get clear on your USP – That’s your ‘Unique Selling Proposition’ –  so that you know exactly what makes YOU different (This is critical when it comes to knowing exactly what to say and build your marketing on, rather than sounding like everyone else in your field)
  • Get you focused on the right path – I’ll help you get clear on what you should focus on first and exactly where to start to get your visibility increasing and your income rising right away. (There’s so many possibilities, but we all need to start somewhere, so let’s get you off to the best possible start and as soon as possible)
  • Assess your Current Website and Marketing – They say it takes you three websites before you get it right! But it doesn’t have to be like that, and you don’t necessarily have to start from square one. I’ll help you focus on what’s lacking, and address key areas that will make all the difference.
  • Find your Best Possible PR Strategy – The world needs to know about you, and I’ll help you to decide exactly which of my favourite tried-and-trusted PR and media vehicles are the best for YOU and your particular business (This is different for everyone, so I’ll help you choose the right ones for you)
  • Leave you with Clear Goals – I want to end the call with you being 1000% clearer on what you need to do to move to the next level. – Or should I say LEAP!

Under One Sky Online Auction for Homelessness – Join Me at the Closing Party!

95615978_2896156940492473_1386769494482878464_n

Founded in 2012, Under One Sky have served over 4,000 homeless people prior to lockdown. They are active in Cambridge and Madrid, with plans to expand to Manchester, Brighton, Bristol, Paris, and Berlin. Their work relies exclusively on private funds, and they spend donations on supporting homeless people directly.  

On April 2nd, 2020, during this Covid-19 pandemic the group launched an emergency daily food delivery campaign, whilst raising awareness of the plight of the rough sleepers ‘left behind’ in Central London. By early July, over 32,000 meals had been served.  

As their emergency relief activities wind down and regular homeless facilities are switching back on, they are planning new projects to continue serving those who don’t have a safe place to call home. 

“After the economic fallout of Covid-19 in the UK” said Mikkel Juel Iversen, Founder of Under One Sky “As a small, but powerful grassroots organisation we have identified new ways that we believe will truly support our homeless friends. Funds raised from this auction will help us deliver these goals”
