    Ep. 29: You build it before you need it

    Hey Everyone,
    Welcome to episode 29 of the Two Coach Confidence podcast. Our aim with this podcast is to bring fun and interesting guests from all areas and walks of life to share their knowledge, stories and experiences of this mystical and subjective topic we refer to as confidence.
    In today's episode we are joined by Charlotte Fowles. Charlotte is also known as ‘The Executive Adventurer’ and is an expert in silencing the inner critic and practising intentional resilience and confidence. 
    Previously working for many years in U.K. central government communications - including Press and Events Officer to Gordon Brown – she has a history of being trusted to deliver by high profile figures. Praised for her passion and for talking truth to power, she currently works with leaders and professionals who feel crippled by their inner critic and imposter syndrome. 
    After enduring over a decade of significant personal trauma - which included cancer, multiple miscarriages and severe depression to name just a few - she is an expert in creating triumph from tragedy and living a successful life in spite of this. 
    In this episode, we talk about:
    We discuss the recent rise in individuals using the term Imposter Syndrome, and due to its subjectivity how it relates to confidence How over time Charlotte has developed a neutral mindset when it comes to her beliefs Charlotte's five step process for developing confidence The idea of building confidence before you need it, instead of reacting in a particular situationThe fear Charlotte had about sharing her professional work online, but how comfortable she felt sharing her personal experiences and trauma The area’s of life where Charlotte still finds her confidence being impacted and how she goes about managing those particular area’sThe story of how Charlotte became known as ‘The Executive Adventurer’We find ourselves discussing fitness for functionality and enjoyment, instead of fitness for a body that looks a certain wayThe journey Charlotte has been on to develop her confidence and the deep deep coaching work that has supported her Charlotte shares the concept of parenting our own inner child, and tremendous impact this practice has had on her own personal developmentHow therapy has significantly supported the strong sense of confidence that Charlotte now possessesWhat an episode, Charlotte has experienced an unfathomable amount of trauma and personal pain. Despite this, Charlotte chooses to focus on helping others who are battling with their own inner critic. As you’ll hear Charlotte's light still shines bright and her energy is contagious. It goes without saying that this is another episode packed with practical ways for you to grow and develop your confidence.

    Ep. 28: Sometimes helping is not the best thing

    Ep. 28: Sometimes helping is not the best thing

    Hey Everyone,
    Welcome to episode 28 of the Two Coach Confidence podcast. Our aim with this podcast is to bring fun and interesting guests from all areas and walks of life to share their knowledge, stories, and experiences of this mystical and subjective topic we refer to as confidence.
    In today's episode, we have the absolute privilege of being joined by Rowena Birch. As an international judo player, Rowena competed in the Olympic Games in Atlanta and held the title of European Judo Champion. After retiring from competition, she went on to coach/manage the national judo squad (U18 years), helping to develop athletes including Sally Conway and Gemma Gibbons, who went on to win Olympic medals. She then spent 10 years coaching high-performance coaches and managers, helping them create environments that support development, motivation, and learning. 
    At the age of 50, Rowena decided it was time for something new and retrained as a financial adviser. Here she still uses her coaching skills to help individuals and businesses to develop financial plans and make decisions, which fit their unique needs. Rowena is also Vice president of British Judo, and a trustee for the charity Gaddum, who supported her family after the sudden death of her husband. A mother of two, Rowena now enjoys gardening, cooking, and the occasional visit back onto the judo mat.
    In this episode, we talk about:
    The misconception that confident people are confident all of the time How Rowena felt to competing against a former Olympic Champion who just so happened to be one of her idolsThe idea that if you want to become more confident, you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zoneRowena kindly shares how suddenly losing her husband in a car accident significantly affected her confidenceBuilding confidence through stress and adaptation, and what that means practically What it’s like to be surrounded by four world champions and how that impacted Rowena’s mindset and confidenceBeing mindful about not taking over when you’re helping someone develop and grow their confidenceHow to make the process of developing your confidence joyful and funAllowing yourself time when it comes to growing your confidence, it’s not an instant processHow big goals can be dangerous!Realising that you’re not alone when it comes to feeling a certain way, especially when it comes to how you feel about your confidence Having a system of building confidence through successRowena has a wonderfully warm energy and shares some incredibly personal experiences all with the intention of supporting you, our listeners. It’s fair to say this is one of our favourite episodes to date. The content and value provided are outstanding, listening to a former Olympic athlete share their stories, experiences and knowledge so generously was a genuine privilege.

    Ep. 27: Failure is part of your journey!

    Hey Everyone,
    Welcome to episode 27 of the Two Coach Confidence podcast. Our aim with this podcast is to bring fun and interesting guests from all areas and walks of life to share their knowledge, stories and experiences of this mystical and subjective topic we refer to as confidence.
    In today's episode we have the pleasure of being joined by star of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, Kristina Rihanoff. Kristina was born in Siberia and fell in love with music and dance at a young age, entering her first dance competition at just seven-years-old. There onwards, she took part in scores of competitions and became a renowned dance champion.
    Kristina finished her 8 year career on “Strictly Come Dancing” after having her first daughter. Desperate to get back in shape after giving birth she knew that yoga would be the best exercise to rebuild her strength and ability to return to dancing. A yoga devotee for nearly 20 years, Kristina and partner Ben decided to open their very own Wellbeing and Yoga Centre.
    In this episode,
    Kristina shares her extraordinary journey from being a little girl with a dream, to becoming one of the most recognisable Strictly Come Dancing starsHow becoming a Mum has changed everything for her, and realising how much she previously worried about insignificant thingsHow Kristina has learned to love herself and her body through yogaKristina shares that after 20 years of practicing yoga she has recently connected to the spiritual side of yoga and the difference that has made to her lifeHow the work she does now through yoga helps her community think differently about confidenceWe discuss confidence being something that can be nourished, and how Kristina enjoys helping others to feel good about themselvesKristina shares how she has always been a more voluptuous dancer and how that affected her confidence earlier in her careerWe explore the idea of doing one thing a day in order to develop your confidenceKristina suggests that in order to have a clear understanding of what confidence is, it is worth dedicating time to writing down your own thoughts about confidenceThe impact of having such amazing dance teachers in Russia and how they ultimately helped Kristina develop and grow her confidenceAlthough she’s danced for most of her life Kristina still has moments when she doesn’t feel confident, currently feeling terrified of getting back on stage in a new theatre productionWhat an episode, fast paced and full of energy from start to finish! Kristina has a vast amount of life experience and it's clear to see that her relationship with confidence started at a very early age. Hard working and dedicated, whilst at the same humble and honest, a set of familiar values of all the guests we have had on the podcast to date. Confidence continues to feature in many of our conversations, and is something we continue to believe needs to be discussed more in order to support people develop and grow.

    Ep. 26: Our confidence takes work

    Ep. 26: Our confidence takes work

    Hey Everyone,
    In today's episode we are joined by Anupa Roper. Anupa allowed her label of ‘skinny’ to affect her choices and her feeling of worth for a long time. Now she wants to empower the young by helping them to feel happy in their own skin. She would love for the generations that follow to know that they are worthy just the way they are. 
    Anupa has recently published her debut children’s book ‘Sparrowlegs’ about a sparrow who learns to love the feathers she is in and realises how amazing her body is.
    In this episode, we talk about:
    Anupa shares her story of being labelled as skinny and how that has affected many of the choices she has made throughout her lifeHow we’ve ended up perpetually thinking about the way we look, and how much importance we put on the way we lookThe impact social media and reality TV shows appear to be having on body confidenceAnupa’s experience of people expecting her to be confident because of her slim and petite sizeThe pressure that comes from feeling like you have to look a certain way, and the impact that can have on confidenceWhat are our bodies are here to do, vs the way we think they should lookThe journey Anupa has had with her confidence as she has transitioned from being a teacher, Mum, and now writer and authorThe impact of language specifically related to our bodies such as “Mum tum” and “stretch marks” Anupa shares her experience that in Indian culture if you’ve got lighter skin there is a perception you’ll be more confident Confidence being something that needs to be constantly and deliberately worked on if you want more of itThe power of parents opening up conversations with their children about body confidenceHow parents have a responsibility to ensure their children are well informed and understand the difference between what is real and what isn’tA sensitive and very topical episode, Anupa shares her passion and concerns around body confidence. A topic which has depth, emotion and much more to it than you may initially presume. In a world where so much of our mental stimulation is found via social media and more visual imagery than ever before, it’s no wonder there is a growing issue surrounding body confidence.

    In this episode, we talk about:
    How Jo has spent the last few years developing her own confidence after experiencing a life-changing accidentWhy often individuals will only change after a significant trauma, and if it’s possible to make the same types of changes without experiencing a significant traumaWe discuss that what’s going on on the outside doesn’t always equal what’s going on on the insideJo explains her decision to create confidence on purpose, and what that looks like for JoCalling BS on that voice inside your head that tells you that you’re not confidentWhether something is true or not is irrelevant, the important part is whether what you believe is serving you! How the mind constantly seeks evidence to confirm what we believe to be true and will do anything it can to find that evidenceJo’s belief that confidence is an emotion, and therefore can be created through her thoughtsThe power our internal language has on our confidence, and therefore how important it is  to consciously choose words that strengthen our confidenceThe difference between blaming ourselves, and taking personal responsibility for what we do and what we thinkConfidence in self-being our natural state until our ego starts to develop and impact how we see ourselvesHow Jo’s work is supporting clients across the globe to wake up and live on purposeA vibrant, fun, lively conversation with plenty of outstanding content. Jo’s energy is infectious and refreshing, she brings a unique balance of understanding and compassion with an open and direct approach.
