  • COACHING & MENTORING | shaktiwomen

    MENTORING AND COACHING WHY GET A MENTOR? BOOK FREE CONSULTATION “Every successful woman knows that having a great mentor is her key to unlocking her creativity and her intuition.” ​ Over the years Shakti Women have interviewed hundreds of women about the issues they face in everyday life as business or professional women. The key issue we heard time and time again was ISOLATION. Having an experienced, professional person to bounce ideas around with or a highly qualified person to talk through your options or to give you clear impartial advice can make the difference between “just about managing” and thriving! Family and friends are amazing but they all have biased opinions of you and probably your business or professional life that can get in the way of decision-making. Sometimes it’s YOU that is getting in the way of your own progress. Shakti Women's mentoring programme is a unique approach to mentoring based on the following key principle: If you could see the whole picture, you would be the best person to make decisions about your life, work or business. You may already know the answers but need space and a qualified, impartial board behind you to help you to come to your own conclusions and to make informed, well thought through decisions. WHAT'S SO GOOD ABOUT MENTORING? Research shows that businesses whose leaders have mentors are 85% more likely to succeed than those without. ​ With a Shakti mentor... You get space to listen to yourself and think things through. You get a sounding board to sound out new ideas. You get to speak to someone who has walked in your shoes. You get to speak to someone who believes that YOU and only YOU are in the best position to understand your career or business and that when you have all the facts, only YOU can decide where you are going. You get to speak to someone (when you do need industry-specific advice) who has the answers or can sign-post you to the people that do. When we started showing women how mentoring worked they all said the same thing: “I don’t think I have ever really been listened to before.” ​ What exactly is the difference between mentoring, coaching, advice and therapy, though? mentoring Therapy We are professional women experienced in some area of business or professional development and highly trained in effective listening, visioning and empowering techniques. We listen, reflect, strategise, challenge and act as a sounding board. We support you to focus on your priorities. Psychotherapy is the treatment of a physical, mental or social disorder. Often talk therapy helps us to simply feel heard in order to make sense of our dilemmas. Counselling is basically professional assistance and guidance in resolving personal or psychological problems. Advice Advice is about suggesting the best course of action to take based on the advisor's knowledge and experience. Advice may give you tips about how to run your life or your business (albeit based upon a wealth of industry-specific experience). Coaching You know exactly where you want to go and just need someone in your corner to help you set and reach your deadlines. A coach will be there to hold you accountable and keep you on track. ABOUT OUR MENTORS ​ ​ Shakti Women is training new mentors all the time. Most have a background in either business, professional development, life coaching or therapeutic & NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) counselling. They have all also undertaken our in-house mentoring training (ILM or SFEDI standard) to ensure their listening skills are up to our standard and that they are able to promote the values and mission of Shakti Women. ​ Finding the perfect fit is about trial and error - try before you buy. All of our mentors offer a 15-minute FREE consultation. Whilst it’s not vital you like your mentor, it is important that you feel safe, a sense of trust and the confidence to share all of your personal and professional dilemmas. So, it’s really worth you shopping around and finding the perfect fit! ​ It's the best investment I have ever made and the most productive hour of every month." “The breakthrough I received was and is priceless” “The sessions are effective, thought provoking and beneficial” “I always leave my mentoring session feeling energised and ready to take on the next challenge” HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? ​ ​

  • The Red Mist

    I am all things Greek in the uniqueness of my rage. I am Medusa's head - tangled plaits flapping in a non-existent breeze as they wrap viper-like around your neck and squeeze. Did I mention my eyes can also freeze? I am Zeus' Missus Hera - when thwarted, best abort all plans. I stamp, I shout, I throw things about, possibly the most expensive items in the house. I chew wood, spit it out, lucky, lucky you, if my blood does not shoot past it's boiling point, Id hate to disappoint. I've even driven my man to madness - I'm that bad, and he that sad - when I've finished my badassery - believe me. I am Circe if my partner upsets me - I am that sorceress who changes men to swine. Mine is the wrath of all the Gods of the Sea - see me, read, tsunami. Iam Nyx Goddess of Anger, the shadowy, shady lady of night - if you do not do right by me. I am worse than Chaos - his tears are bathos beside me. I am banshees wailing the doom of those in or out of the rooms I prey in - crying so shrilly the Moon shivers and drops her head. I am The Egyptian Book of the Dead - translated - funerary text for all who vex me. Beware my frown. Do not allow the red mist to come down - for when day falls away and night makes it's play everything must drown. By Elizabeth Uter

  • When I die

    A list of demands feels peculiar coming from the dead, a bit like when you find a lost shopping list lying lonely on the street, or a pinned-up notice whispering requirements in the crowd of junk on the local shop noticeboard. Each of them belong- ing to the hands of a disembodied spectre, though I suppose that factually would be correct for my position. I would like to be burnt to a crisp, cinders, ashes to ashes a la David Bowie's request. This is so my partner can smush me up into a diamond, leaving maybe a finger or a toe to be scattered out to sea. I would like to be a diamond so I can sit fabulous- ly on a pinky, winking up at him as he goes about his daily chores. Id like to let him feel the joy I felt under every touch, every caress of his skin on mine, A diamond is solid too, reminding him that what is created cannot be destroyed, it merely changes shape: like water to ice, water to steam, chocolate to a happy belly. To the sea with the rest of me, so i can swim with the fish and fly with the gulls. A medium once told me she saw me as a sea bird, and I'd like to join them to make her right. An adventurer, eagle eyed, the troubadour of the waves, singing their poetry out to the cliffs, caves and sky. By Grace Radford

  • Words

    Words carry energy. Words can raise vibrational frequency When we use words for good and select them mindfully… They can send a heart swimming in a sea of love, erasing feelings of insecurity, re-charging a tired mind with injections of positivity. Whether it’s what we write….read, speak….or …hear Words, can shape and determine the beauty of our day…or month, or our year Verbs and adjectives Paragraphs and sentences Accompanied by mixture of tones and melodies Delivery seasoned with gesture’s and body languages Birthed out of ruminations and inferences Words can hurt, ..heal….or ….harm Cause upset, or keep you calm A shout… a murmur….or a ..mumble Words can humiliate, …..stumble or humble… They mould the life and mind of a child More than sounds, that pass through the larynx, into the air and linger for a while In your home, the words you choose contribute to the psychological environment... ….the development of temperament …Forming internal talk, dictating an outward walk.. Contouring emotions, perceptions, beliefs, and ….day to day thoughts Even a delicate whisper in the ear can be a vital step towards change and transformation So ..you clapped at the beginning of  this poem… now ….here is a call to action Question is.. Will you choose to bridle harmful words….. pause and think ….before speaking? Will you….consider how…when you walk away… your words leave a friend, sibling or child… feeling? …can you clap once again if you agree… that words can transform… …….carry energy…. and raise vibrational frequency… AXÉ"…beautiful…people…. season your words with life's good force.. love… vitality, grace and sincerity. by Denise Amory-Reid
