Your interpretation of life is built on your very personal mind map of the world, your experiences, your beliefs (as well as those others have given you), your influencers, your values and often, on how you are feeling in any given moment. Add to that the human inclination to think the worst (flight/flight) and is it any wonder we get stuck, feel unhappy, disconnected?
And of course all of these feelings impact our ability to explore all of our gifts & skills, take care of ourselves, often prioritising everything external of self and leaving little time & energy if any, for the internal needs.
“If you’re always trying to be normal, you’ll never know how amazing you can be!“
There is much to learn from the wisdom of others as well as our own innate wisdom and with this in mind I am encouraging you to head over to Somer Valley FM where I host 2 radio shows, The Women’s Power Hour and The Energiser Show. You can access the different shows live or on demand. The one I want to point you to is The Women’s Power Hour Show playing out today, as I type this, 24th March. It will only be available for 4 weeks so it is time sensitive (although there will be plenty of other great shows for you to access).
“Values are the shields that you carry throughout life and it protects you from whatever life throws at you.”

Let us begin to look at life through a wider lense, allowing our own & others experiences to broaden our perspective instead of closing us down, shutting us in. There is greatness in each and everyone of us… It is up to us to reveal it and we can!
A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’
