In this episode, Rachel is joined by Corrina Gordon Barnes, a Certified Professional Coactive Coach (CPCC), facilitator of The Work and trained teacher.

We chat about how, during the coronavirus crisis, some of our thoughts and ways of thinking can be causing us needless suffering. Corrina has discovered a practice called ‘The Work’ which has been transformational in her life and now uses this approach to help people question their thoughts and limit the suffering that they may be experiencing as a result. 

So often in our lives we are plagued by thoughts of ‘it shouldn’t be this way’, ‘it’s not fair’, ‘they should do this or that’. Corrina explains why arguing with reality is never successful and talks us through the simple yet profound process that can free us from these anxious thoughts. 

Corrina is facing the loss of her grandmother and we use the work to talk through this scenario; she also shares how this process has helped her to come to terms with the loss of her baby son Alfie over the last couple of years.
