Breathing and being, not doing

I’m not sure if it’s the Spring growth spurt that seems to start impacting on people round about now but overwhelm appears to have hit home of late. And, maybe, that the hot sunny weather, whilst being heavenly, is often, also, quite knackering! So, in seeing a number of clients who were suffering in one way or another from their busy lives, I’ve handed

Summer news, so far

Yesterday, I was in the garden doing some paperwork and I was stunned to see this divine little insect – take a look, it blew my mind – soo beautiful! Delightful to know you can be somewhere mundane, and be absolutely amazed. Keep an eye out – let me know if you see one. And, to flag up, Barefoot Walks are happening again –

Acid/Alkaline balance

A while back, Sandra Cassidy, a Nutritional Life Coach, came and gave a great talk at the monthly Chacewater Hypnotherapy Group Open Talks. It prompted me to start my day with cider vinegar in water, which has resulted in an increase in my energy Рinteresting! This, in turn, reminded me to buy pH test strips, to enable me to do my own acid/alkaline checks

Soap Nuts!

Not as random as you might think… Can you imagine how much washing I do? And, how important it is that I use products that won’t irritate the skin? I have a number of clients with sensitive skin, and, although I haven’t used bio washing powder since my son was born, I’m always interested in exploring options that do really clean towels etc., but

More strategies for 2014

Generally, I don’t tend to be very specific in my blogs, because everyone is different, and I aim to encourage empowered thinking and self-awareness, rather than spoon feed you with ‘advice’. Genuinely, what’s right for one person, can be totally wrong for someone else – it really isn’t me copping out, it’s back to what I said in an earlier blog – one size

Illness and Recovery

Well, what a hideous ‘lurgy’ there has been knocking many of us out recently. The really tough part seemed to be the relentless need to pace oneself after the very worst of it had passed. Being fairly old (well, nearly 60!), I remember when recovery was factored into illness, under the name of convalescence… Now, it seems we expect ourselves to get back to

Choices around your wellbeing

Attend Pilates or yoga, go for a run, a bike ride or a swim, surf… have a massage! – all are great ways of connecting with yourself and looking after your wellbeing. Clients enjoy the choices I offer and find they address different problems. Some alternate between a stronger massage and a more gentle one. Explore, experiment, shake things up a little. As you

Rossiter Payoff – Happier Skiing!

Another success story with Rossiter … After massaging a client with hammer toe, I suggested he try a Rossiter workout. He mentioned discomfort when buying new shoes but not considered taking any action.¬†After a couple of workouts he was aware finding comfy shoes was much easier – result! However, the real payoff (for him) came when he went skiing. Unlike many of the other

One Size Does Not Fit All…

… not in any area of your life. Fact – pretty much across the board, though I grant you there may be some exceptions! Generally, the trick is to get to know yourself better and keep deepening that relationship – it’s lifelong. That way, whatever the trends, the latest discoveries, breakthroughs etc, you can check in with yourself, trusting that you will know the

Catch up, Maintain or Progress?

While some people seem to like to hit a New Year at top speed, others may find it more useful to ‘feel’ their way in. That way it could be easier to decide whether the focus needs to be catch-up, maintain or progress, or indeed a mix of all three. So, as we’re half way through February, now might be a good time to
