"The quality of love we experience with others, in ourselves and in flow with our passions, ultimately defines the quality of our lives".
So Let's Keep This Really Simple: There are 3 Great Loves that Deeply Enhance Positive Mental Health, Courage & Life Satisfaction:
1. Self-compassion (or self-respect)
2. Mindful relationships with other beings (human, animal or other!) &
3. Passions - thing(s) we love that challenge, engage and put us in a state of FLOW
Unfortunately, many people don't know how to cultivate these great loves to heal and enrich their lives, because they've simply never been taught.
They may feel pushed around by an over-active inner critic, caught in painful relationship patterns, or unsure where to find flow and passion for life.
Each day for a year, the 3 Loves Project provides bite-sized life lessons to develop these 3 loves of your life, for positive mental health, courage, greater self-esteem, better relationships & emotional freedom.
Each lesson builds upon the previous ones to create new self-awareness, personal transformation and inner strength in you, over the long-term.
This is a Massive Program for Positive Mental Health & Personal Growth, Presented in Daily Chunks as a Regular, Reliable, Supportive Presence in Your Days for An Entire Year.

Let's Get Started Now
Although we're always so busy, we're frequently hungry for what really matters.
We strive to find some kind of life balance, or put routines in place but we can't find the energy or motivation to keep them going. Often that means we're not being fully true to ourselves yet about what we enjoy and what matters most.
We ask ourselves:
How can I find freedom and passion when I live on the edge of overwhelm, trying to do everything?
How do I do self-care when it's just adding more stress to my life?
How do I work out what really makes me feel satisfied with my life?
How do accept myself in all my flaws?
How do I fix my relationship?
In two decades as a psychologist I've been asked for solutions to these dilemmas many times.
You can and will answer all of these questions when you have the right perspectives, tools and strategies.
The truth is, the simplest, most profound and authentic path to designing and living your best life is to be guided by the 3 loves of your life.
Everyday for a year, I'll be here with practical coaching to keep you on your path to inner discoveries that will help you live how you want to live, now and in your future. From articles, tools, tips, new science, daily practices, audios, videos, and personal stories - each lesson builds one upon another to develop your self-compassion, self-esteem, mindfulness, healthy relationships and living your passions.
Prioritising these great loves of your life as a never-fail compass in your inner and outer journeys and decisions, will guide new habits that will last a lifetime because they come from what you LOVE.
Each daily installment is created to stay with you throughout your day as you redesign your world from the inside-out, to truly reflect your values and desires.
Some of the topics you'll cover over the 365 lessons include:
Learning to unplug from stress and overwhelm
Dealing with unhelpful thoughts
Transforming anxiety into helpful energy
Setting boundaries and healing relationships
Developing one-minute habits that will work exponentially to support you
Expanding your self-awareness of what gives you joy
Releasing old stories
Flourishing in a life of your design.
At the end of each week you'll reflect upon and make sure you've integrated the messages of the preceding week.
You can go back over the articles, exercises and lessons as many times as you'd like to throughout the year.
No matter what time of the year it is, it's time to invest in your emotional intelligence and positive mental health.
This is how it unfolds:
Each week 7 new lessons will be published here for you - each one designed to build on the previous lessons, every day for 365 days.
122 days of self compassion
122 days of building better relationships (family, romantic, friendships and beyond)
121 days of developing your passions & finding your flow.
You can submit questions as we go and each week I'll do my best to answer them all.
Give yourself the gift of wisdom and support from an expert psychologist to design the life and relationships you most desire.
