A Hug and A Nudge

Six weeks of support to help you do the things that support your mind, leaving you calmer, happier and your brain quieter

A Hug and A Nudge is now closed

BUT it will be running again later in 2020, so if you’re interested have a wee look.

And sign up to receive my emails – The Connection – to be the first to know when it opens again.

Looking after our mental health is as simple as knowing what helps and doing it.

But a lot of the time, that simple process is anything but.

We’re plagued with fear that we don’t know what helps.

When we’re in that storm of emotions, we can’t remember what helps.

Perhaps we feel guilty for doing what helps, because it isn’t what we’re ‘supposed’ to be doing.

Maybe we feel like we don’t deserve to give ourselves permission to do what helps.


A Hug and A Nudge will give you exactly what it says on the tin

A knowing, loving hug. A whispered ‘I get you, I hear you, I am here for you.’

And then a gentle, but oh so needed nudge in the right direction for you. A little prod in the back that says, ‘Now do the thing.’

Over six weeks I’ll help you figure out what helps you get back on that even (ish) keel and work through some of the blockers stopping you from doing those things, so that you feel calmer, quieter and happier.

What it looks like

Six weeks of email notes from the heart; audio support full of honesty, advice and calm; and worksheets to help you turn your thoughts and plans into reality that helps you.

Week One

4th May: Remember what helps

I know how easy it is to forget what helps when our minds are tangled, jumbled & overwhelmed. 

This week we’ll lay those foundations and create a list of things that you can return to time and time again

Week Two

11th May: You deserve to feel good

Something in you says you don’t deserve to feel better.

I’m here to tell you that you do.

In week two we will unpick some of those thoughts and start to straighten them out so you can give yourself permission to do the things that help.

Week Three

18th May: Finding pockets of time

We’re all busy, especially right now. 

So it’s hard to find the time to look after our minds.

This week we will find those pockets of time – however long or short they are – and figure out what self care superchargers you can do in the pockets.

Week Four

25th May: There’s no guilt in looking after yourself

Do you feel bad choosing to do something that makes you feel better, rather than something ‘productive?’ Does that feel selfish?

Well pal, the idea that what is good for us is bad for others is a LIE. What’s good for us is good for our people. 

This week, we’ll work on getting rid of that old, harmful belief and start believing that looking after ourselves and being a good business owner, mother, sister, partner are not mutually exclusive.

Week Five

1st June: Believing in the things that help

It can be scary to think that some of those go-to coping mechanisms might not help any more.

We’ll work together in week five to build that belief.

We’ll also figure out how to test if something is helping and how to find other things to replace the things that aren’t as powerful anymore.

Week Six

8th June: Keeping it going

This isn’t just about giving you six weeks of support, I want to help you create a routine that helps you continue to look after your mind.
