My story, and how I turned my life around

I have recently reposted a video on social media which I recorded last year where I talk about surviving an abusive marriage and how one word completely changed the direction of my life. This was such a catalyst for me in what was a very difficult and challenging time of my life. But it allowed […]

What has anxiety got to do with social media?

I caught up with my friend recently. As we chatted about what we had been up to, and he told me he had decided to take himself off all social media. Having had a very large following on Instagram, he decided to remove his account from his phone and restrict his checking in to 15 […]

Lack of confidence and social anxiety? – A thing of the past

Imagine a life where you felt completely restricted by crippling social anxiety, lacked confidence and had problematic sleep? Imagine how debilitating life would be as a result? Imagine how many areas of your life it would inhibit, to your disadvantage. Imagine all the things you wouldn’t be able to do and how restricted life would […]

I’m glad last week got people talking!

Mental health awareness week certainly raised awareness. It got people discussing mental health, and being okay about it. Which I’m very pleased about. But it’s okay to keep talking about this. Great to raise awareness, but it’s okay to talk about these kind of things in general. There is often a stigma around mental health, […]

It’s okay not to be okay

I attended an event in Manchester yesterday at UK Fast. The topic was all about wellbeing and mental health, and also how this is managed in the workplace. There were a wealth of speakers including an extremely successful multi-million pound business owner who was brave enough to speak about something he had never talked to […]

Social anxiety, no confidence and poor sleep? – Not any more!

I want to share with you a story about a client I had been working with for a couple of months. When this client first came to see me, he had difficulties with the following – anxiety in social situations, a lack of confidence and he was suffering with poor sleep. My client was initially […]

How do thoughts affect us and what can we do differently?

So how are you feeling right now? Are you feeling enthused, excited, raring to go? Looking forward to the day ahead with passion and vigour? Or are you feeling those familiar patterns? Maybe thoughts of, oh I’m too tired, I can’t be bothered, its raining again, I’m worried about x,y,z. Or do you find perhaps […]

So I had a wobble…and it’s okay!

So last week, I had a wobble. A couple of things happened, which shall we say, took me off kilter. I won’t go into the in’s and outs, but I didn’t feel too great for a day or two. Should you find yourself in a similar position, either now and again, or more often than […]

Miserable Monday? Sod that, today is Terrific Tuesday!

Hello! So yesterday was supposed to be the most miserable day of the year? I don’t want to focus on this anymore, I want to focus on how this is the start of a new year, the start of a new chapter, the start of a new focus, goal or success. The start of feeling […]

You don’t have to suffer with anxiety

I absolutely love what I do. Why? Because of this. I have clients who come to see me who have suffered with long term anxiety, some for years, well over ten years or more. Within a matter of sessions, symptoms will shift profoundly. Anxiety is an area that I specialise in. Clients can suffer with […]

New year new start! …. or not?

Christmas – not festive cheer for all

So Christmas is meant to be a special time. The time of year to spend time with family and loved ones, a time to be merry and be full of festive cheer. It’s also a time for reflection as we move into the new year. However there is often so much pressure placed on us, […]

It’s okay to talk about abuse

This time of year is meant to be a happy time, full of joy and fun. However, it can be particularly difficult for some. It can be a time when old wounds can come to the surface. A time that is now now hyped to be a happy time, for families, for get togethers, for […]

Can EFT, otherwise known as ‘Tapping’ remove physical pain?

I have been a certified EFT practitioner for a number of years. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. This therapy is like acupuncture without the needles. It is an ancient Chinese acupressure therapy combined with a modern talking psychology. There are certain meridian points around the face and upper body which you literally tap on […]

Look after our pets, look after us?

My dog has been really unwell recently. So far, my vet bill has come in at £1,500. Luckily the majority of it has been covered by the insurance. Aside from that however, I haven’t thought twice about handing over my hard cash to the vet, so they can sort out the pooch problems and help […]

What are affirmations and can they help me? (Part 1)

For those of you that don’t know anything about affirmations, your first thought might be that these ‘affirmations’ things are just for certain types of people and they are ‘woo woo’.
