Medicines for the soul

Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed, it means it no longer controls our lives

Last week’s show looked at how to change the way you feel about yourself from the outside – this Sunday, the focus shifts from the ‘outer you’ to the ‘inner you’…

Esther Felder Owen joins Rosalyn and June in the studio to explain how carrying issues and conditioning from the past into your adult life can have a major impact on your potential for success, both professional and personal.

And more importantly, how the Soul Medicine she prescribes can help dissolve the pain, fears and worries that are holding you back.

“It’s all about changing the way we feel about ourselves from the inside,” she says. “I’m passionate about helping clients eliminate formed emotions and blocks, especially those they’ve hidden from themselves, working with them to improve the one relationship that governs everything in their lives – the relationship they have with themselves.”

If you’re seeking lasting change, tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to hear more about Esther’s medicines for the soul and find out how getting that all-important relationship right will in turn have a beneficial effect on the ones you have with everyone around you…

How creative leadership skills can help change lives

As a university lecturer, Debby Cozins has used coaching strategies to support students’ development for many years.

Inspired by the impact of one of the courses she delivers, she’s now set out to share her expertise with a wider audience by writing a book based on its content and she’ll be joining the Girls Around Town on this week’s show to explain why…

The course, Professional Practice and Leadership in Educational Contexts, offers her students the chance to explore and develop qualities needed for creative leadership. “Learning these skills as adults can be challenging because it means overturning habits, often deeply embedded, that have been learned through interaction with other people and from life experiences,” she says.

“If children were taught these skills from the outset, it could offer them the opportunity to live happier, more effective and more successful lives. And, taking this a step further, embedding the teaching of these skills into the education curriculum, could have a positive impact on society as a whole.”

Debby’s book will help parents and teachers set the process in motion, covering topics such as

  • Our amazing brain and habits
  • The ‘Luck’ factor
  • The ‘Fear’ factor
  • Beliefs we hold about ourselves and what we are capable of
  • Flexible action planning
  • Personal growth and change
  • Bounce-back-ability – the importance of being resilient
  • The ‘other people’ factor – interdependence, really listening, the importance of contributing, values and principles
  • Adapting successful business models of leadership for personal use

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to find out what led Debby to write the book and how implementing the strategies it explores can change young people’s lives for the better.
