I had this great chat with Amy Madden firstly because she helped me understand the RAS and how it sometimes shows us only negative experiences and how that can confirm unwanted beliefs and how to make it work for you to achieve your goals. 

We also chatted about emotional regulation strategies and you might like to add some of them to your toolbox…let me know 🙂

Amy Madden
Counsellor Coach

I have spent twenty years working with women on various issues from meeting inner critics to the Justice system and sexual violence.

What I’ve learned is that the more stories I hear, the more I realise how much there is yet to learn. I am equally humbled by the knowledge that in my experience, women ALWAYS know what they need… its just a buried spark waiting to be uncovered again.


I am heavily influenced by Brene Browns shame and vulnerability work.

I just adore the stories of women
I haven’t heard one yet that wasn’t worth telling.
