I was asked by another coaching mentor to uncover, through a series of exercises, my own “superhero” – the it/they I have cultivated over the years, and maybe not realised how important this ally is within me. I came up with Bigears.  He was a best friend, must have been a good listener, and for me he is there to remind me to listen to myself – what I am feeling in the moment.  I hope to bring that skill to support my work.   Do get in touch if I can help.
