Does this describe how you feel?
"...and then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
This quote from Anais Nin inspired the name 'Dare to Blossom' – and although people may use different words – such as ‘stuck’, ‘blocked’, ‘lost’, unfulfilled’, they have decided to do something about it. To risk unfurling, even just one petal at a time, can be the prompt to reach out for help.

If you are looking for a structured coaching programme, have a look at the Compass Rose Coaching Programme
The Compass Rose One-to-One Coaching Programme
The Compass Rose is your guide to your own inner wisdom, and to finding your way to your own power within. .
In my experience (as a customer as well as a life coach) people do not decide to buy 'coaching'. If you are a sports person or an athlete, you might engage a coach to help you improve your performance, to win a race, to be a more effective team member.
In a similar way, the coaching I offer may be focused around a goal: perhaps finding your way to achieving an ambition, identifying the small steps that will take you there. We can work very productively together do this. Sometimes it is about having the time and space to hear yourself think, to listen to what your heart, your soul, the true you really craves. Maybe there are elements of both - knowing your true desires will help you choose where to focus, and the best path for you to get there. Sometimes returning to balance and grounding, maybe letting go of some things that previously felt important, is the necessary first step.
For a deep level of support you may like to consider embarking on your personal pathway to power with my support as companion to stand alongside you along the way
You don't need to take my word for it, there are a number of testimonials on the website, such as this recent one from someone who has been through the six session Compass Rose Coaching Programme.
"My sessions with Mary and The Compass Rose were not at all what I thought they would be. What I experienced was a much deeper, richer and valuable process than I could have imagined! Read more here
Three Card Listening
Recently a Facebook 'memory' prompted me to share a photo of a spiral of my Dare to Blossom Rediscovery Cards spread out at a Christmas event where I exhibited in 2017. People spontaneously began asking me to draw a card for them (as happened on the original post a year ago).
We had fun with me drawing and sharing a single card. Then people began asking for more - and so now I offer a 'Three Card Listening'. For yourself, or as a gift.
I will draw three Dare to Blossom Rediscovery Cards for you, and send you an illustrated pdf with some prompts for you to reflect upon, plus any insights I receive for you. Along with my other offerings (Root and Branch Listenings), these are called 'Listenings' rather than 'readings' because that is what I do: I tune in, I listen to what your inner wisdom is saying. The way I hear that will be different to how you do of course, so my words are just an addition to your own reflections.
I ask the questions: What is your first response? To the word? To the colour? What else is there? And, what else? I suggest you journal, meditate, doodle, paint, sing - record your responses in any way that works for you.
Root and Branch Listening
Can you hear? Your inner wisdom is whispering to you. Maybe the noise and bustle of everyday life is drowning out the voice?
People often ask me if I use the Dare to Blossom Rediscovery Cards for readings. I say no, they are about you rediscovering your own inner wisdom.
And, people ask me to share the wisdom I have gained through all the experiences of over 65 years in this life so far - and I say, I listen to people. So, this offering is called just that 'Listenings'.
The price is £37.00, with the option to add on a 30 minute one-to-one conversation/coaching call with me via Zoom video-conferencing, and receive both for £74.00 (the usual price for the call alone is £45.00). Oh, and the process of Listening, writing up what I hear, and compiling an illustrated pdf review for you takes between one and two hours. There is also the Four Seasons subscription at a reduced price of £21 (or £58 with the coaching call.). Simply scroll down this page to read about that.
Below you will see some questions and answers. Below that is the link to book a one-off Listening (with or without the coaching call).
And, below that again, you will find the details of a subscription for four Listenings a year, at a special price, along with a more detailed description from me and some testimonials.
Q. What is it?
A. A Listening is a little like a reading in that I draw seven cards for you, as shown in the picture of the tree shown here. Three at the roots, one for the trunk, three in the branches.
Q. So, why is it a 'Listening'?
A. I literally 'listen' to what the words, and the colours have to say for you. A message from your own inner wisdom.
Q. Surely, I can do this for myself, why pay you?
A. Yes, you are right. Why indeed? For the same reason that coaching works so well, sometimes the 'busyness' of daily life creates so much noise that we cannot hear ourselves think.
If you already know you wish to book your Listening, here is the link. Alternatively, read on to find out more, hear about others' experiences, and how you can subscribe for four Listenings a year,
