Hello my name is Thea and my cervix hangs to the left

Every woman's favourite pastime - the pap smear Once every 12-months (or so) I rock up to my gynaecologist to spend about 15 minutes of my life having my cervix scraped.  And that day was today. The reason that I go every year, as opposed to every two years like most other women in Australia

Being a good human – It’s an inside job

My take on coaching - what it is (really) and what is really isn't.  Why I think it works and why I believe in it. What is a "coach"? If you're thinking Football Coach, this article probably isn't what you were searching for.  I'm talking about the kind of coach that is a support and
