I know, at first glance these two song lyrics just don’t go together. The first a line from Madonna’s Vogue and the second from a Christmas Carol. However they’ve been running around in my head on a loop for the past week and helping me realise how careful I need to be with knowing what […]

How we think creates the life we live and positive attitudes can change lives. Just as we can get into a downward spiral of stress, tiredness, worry leading to depression, leading to ill health and poor decision making, which leads to worsened circumstances, so we can just as easily develop a upward spiral of self […]

“We must say “no” to what, in our heart, we don’t want. We must say “no” to doing things out of obligation, thereby cheating those important to us of the purest expression of our love. We must say “no” to treating ourselves, our health, our needs as not as important as someone else’s. We must […]

“The word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” – Carl Jung One of my dearest friends and I were talking about personal development, happiness and how we’re doing with dealing with life.

When you say you’re going on a diet, how do you normally feel? Defeated maybe? Annoyed that you’ve reached a body shape and size you’re unhappy with?

When people ask what I do, and I say Clinical Hypnotherapy, I inevitably get the ‘Oh, you help people stop smoking?’ thing.   In all honesty, I don’t. Not because there’s no value in doing that for people, there is of course and I have many great colleagues who do this work better than I […]

When you think about how old you are, if you’re like me, you normally just think about the number of years you’ve been alive and maybe what you see in the mirror and then maybe, like me, you judge yourself against what society, the media and Hollywood say someone that age should look like, behave, […]

Some people are fat and some people are thin. And the reasons why aren’t solely to do with food. Some people eat to fuel their body, some people eat to savour the tastes and some people eat to bury their feelings. Some people can eat one piece of a chocolate bar and for some people […]

Everyone attending the Past Life Regression training was a qualified Clinical Hypnotist, some people were also Reiki and energy workers so they had a head start on us more analytical types. And by the end of the two days, every one of us had had several astonishing experiences of Past Life Regression and been instructed […]

Whatever you may feel about the phenomenon of past lives, I don’t think you can dismiss it outright. No-one can because we just don’t know, not absolutely. We cannot state definitely whether or not it can happen, whether or not it does happen. Have we lived before? All of us? Multiple times? And if we […]
