What Makes You Feel Loved and Appreciated? As a support person for your friend or family member with a serious or chronic illness, do you sometimes wonder how best to help them? Do people tell you often how amazing you are in all that you are doing in your role as caregiver but somehow you still feel unappreciated? Within each of us is an emotional “tank” whose level fluctuates just like […]Read More
FINDING REST FROM EMOTIONAL EXHAUSTION COMPASSION FATIGUE is the name given to a collection of behaviours and symptoms that appear when we offer empathy and caring to someone we love for a prolonged period of time without adequate support. Our normal sense of kindness and compassion begins to fade and resentment and overwhelming fatigue begin to grow. Where we would normally step up to support the needs of our care […]Read More

Things don’t seem to work out as well as we had planned and it feels as though life is conspiring […]Read More
TRANSITIONS – FROM LETTING GO TO NEW BEGINNINGS Being a caregiver of someone with any chronic illness requires resilience and an ability to adjust to ongoing changes. The changes may be large and planned on the long term or they may be adjustments and adaptations to daily situations. William Bridges in his book entitled “Managing Transitions” makes an interesting distinction between a change and a transition. Change is doing something in […]Read More
NURTURING BUOYANCY AS A CAREGIVER There are many images and metaphors that could be used to describe the experience of being a caregiver. I love images that that speak to the resilience that I have witnessed in the many caregivers that I know. Buoyancy reminds me of a lovely, multicoloured beach ball that, while it can be pushed under the water temporarily, it actively resists staying there. The following […]Read More
I was diagnosed seven years ago with Systemic Lupus and have since been pursuing mainstream and alternative therapies to address the pain, fatigue, hormonal problems and mood disorders which seem to accompany most auto-immune diseases. Many sources I read suggested that identifying food sensitivities could be critical in managing or recovering from Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, and mood disorders so I came to Marg for help. I found her […]Read More
I came to Marg looking to change my life. I had spent almost a decade of my life not living up to my true potential and I desperately wanted to make changes in my life with the help of a Life Coach. Marg helped me open up my life and share things I never spoke about before; this was the first step in breaking through my personal barriers. From this step […]Read More
My initial meeting with Margaret was to investigate the part my diet was causing my Ear, Nose and Throat problem which had been plaguing me for years, each winter. It became obvious, from consulting with Margaret, that my diet was top heavy with dairy products.
