On the week of World Mental Health Day….
- Relax – Set a bit of time for relaxing yourself each day.
- Whatever you focus on, you amplify. Be aware of your thinking, when it’s positive, when it’s negative.
- Positive expectancy – Focus on how you want to be.
The way I approach clients is ‘I’m here to help you help yourself’.
I ask questions like ’What’s already working?’
When we discover what we are already doing that helps, or what we have done in the past to get ourselves out of a hole, then we can amplify that. Doing more of what we are already doing that is helpful, that isn’t complicated. I can help you to identify when you are being the very best version of yourself, and that’s a terrific place for going forward.read more
If you’re feeling anxious or down, or suffering from low self-esteem, how important is it to find the cause of feeling like that?Will finding where the feelings spring from help to make it better?Well, the answer is, quite likely it won’t help to make it any better.So...read more
Spending too much time dwelling on things we can’t change can hold us back. It’s easy to dwell on the past, replaying situations in our mind that can’t be changed, or worrying about the future. Actually that’s worrying about potential futures, what might go wrong....read more

And at last it’s March. Lighter mornings, lighter evenings.
Feeling hopeful, looking forward to seeing more sunshine. Making it that much easier to get out of bed in the morning.
Are you a lark or an owl?
Whether you start the day with all cylinders firing, or you prefer to be busy late into the night, these aren’t things we can choose. However we can subtly alter our patterns for the better.read more
I’m delighted to have my photo film up on the website now.
It gives you the chance to see the surroundings I’m lucky enough to work in: peace and quiet aren’t absolutely essential for hypnosis, but they can bring relaxation on even faster. You will see how quiet it is, and how we are surrounded by nature.read more
February is the month when we think of LOVE. That wonderful warm feeling we have when that one individual seems to fulfill everything that we need. LOVE, as they say, is what makes the world go round.
I’d bet that for every one who anticipates Valentine’s Day with glee, there are half a dozen who anticipate being disappointed, let down, or worse.
Our emotions, like our thoughts, can run on a loop: “I always choose the wrong kind of man”, “Girls generally let me down”, “I’m not lucky in love”. Our brains are expectation / prediction organs: what we expect is what we predict. And when we predict something, then we act like it’s going to happen. And if we act as if that’s going to happen (“he’s going to let me down”) could our actions actually be influencing the outcome?read more
RESOLUTIONS – Easy to make, hard to keep.
It’s a new year and we really want to do better, but it’s January. And in January it’s cold, it’s wet, the nights are long and the days are short. If there is any time when will power might be a bit harder to find, I think it’d be in January.
No longer do you need to rely on will power to make changes. It’s so hard if every biscuit is going to start an argument between two different parts of your mind: “One biscuit won’t matter” “You said No More Biscuits!” Etc. etc…read more
