A big shout out to my friend Tiga today.
Tiga and I first met in Rwanda as VSOs. I'm still here, seven years later (with a break in between), but Tiga's recently moved to Thailand, where she works as a life coach.
I must admit, I was a little unsure what to expect to begin with. My favourite self-help books are Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking and The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k .
If it wasn't for the fact I know Tiga, I'm pretty sure I'd never have booked myself in.
On the other hand, that thing about writers craving experience is also pretty true.
I've had two sessions so far and they were extremely helpful.
Each session begins with a gentle meditation, then you get to lead the way with whatever it is that's on your mind, resulting in follow-up exercises with inventive, playful ways to explore those themes.
Colouring pens at the ready.
Tiga has a great sense of humour, she's extremely professional, and she's passionate about what she does. Whether you're at a crossroads in your life, or just mulling things over, it's well worth trying her out.
