Today’s world can be hard for many.

In addition to what’s going on in the world, balancing work, relationships, friendships and finances can be a continuous challenge.

Do you feel stressed?
Are you, overeating, smoking or drinking more?

Have a healthy habits become an issue?

You are not on your own!

The good news is that hypnosis can really help you — Hypnosis works!

Hypnosis today is supported by many evidence-based studies including:

Smoking Cessation — McCleary, N. (2014)
“Hypnotherapy is more effective than nicotine replacement therapy”

Weight Loss — Kirsch, I.(1996)
“ Hypnosis helped people lose weight in both…

Where Are We Now?

It doesn’t take a genius to realise that humanity is in a pickle. “Trapped” by a virus that the vast majority (99.6%) seem to survive and a confused government only offering what seem to be ineffective and restrictive solutions for moving forward with our lives, it’s difficult to see how our lives can get back to a better place where we can live with true freedom.

When situations generate a huge amount of fear for so many, and this one sure as heck does, then it’s always wise just take a step or even a few steps backwards and reflect…

Some years ago, I remember writing a newsletter that was titled “Thrive or Survive”. Whilst I can’t remember exactly what I wrote though I probably would have discussed the fact that most people liked and wanted the idea of thriving in their life. I remember that I did a small survey on a local high street, and 10 out of people said they wanted to thrive but also admitted that they weren’t actually thriving in their lives. And when I asked them if they would consider making changes in their lives in order to thrive thy also hesitated…and err hesitated….and

Making Choices

“We need to teach the next generation of children from day one that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind’s greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.”

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

We might have thought that lock down was starting to break down, only to find ourselves suddenly sitting with the “threat” of a second wave, a mask wearing mandate and a slogan accompanying it that says “We are all in this together” and suggestions that those not wearing a mask need to be marginalised from…

With lock-down only slowly easing in the UK, and the prospect of overseas holidays becoming increasingly remote for most people, many people may find their state of mind slipping yet further downwards without their annual summer trip to look forward to. In fact, the UK government has actually warned us against making holiday plans just yet, so the possibility of a summer holiday seems pretty bleak for many.

So, in response, I am offering a solution to help people like you travel to your favourite destination
– and all from the comfort of your own armchair!

Amidst what has…

If you’re a smoker you might not know how fear keeps you smoking. However you might be worried about the risks, and in that caser now is a good time to think about quitting for good.

It’s a harsh reality that if you’re a smoker you’re more likely to get acute respiratory infections and have a higher risk of those infections becoming severe

There has never been a better time to stop smoking….than now.

However stopping is hard for many, and perhaps particularly so at a time of great stress and when many of our routines have been so…

The current situation in the world has certainly changed how we live our everyday lives.

It has affected many of our daily routines, and one of its biggest reported impacts has been that on sleep. We all know that sleep often becomes more elusive when we are anxious.

Many people report that they are suffering sleep issues for the first time in their lives, including:

  • Awake for long periods
  • Unable to fall asleep at all
  • Wake up several times during the night
  • More intense and emotional dreams
  • Tired and groggy the next morning
  • Find it difficult to concentrate or…

With the world in the grip of a global pandemic, we are living in extremely uncertain times. Let’s face it, many of our respective comfort blankets have been stripped away from us, and for many that uncertainty can be difficult to cope with.

  • You may feel worried right now.
  • You may struggle to keep anxious thoughts in balance
  • And quite understandably you may feel unsure about the future.

Help, though, is always at hand — for you CAN learn to live with uncertainty and create calm in the face of this uncertainty

Facing Uncertainty is Worse than Facing Physical Pain

As fear of a thing is often…

If you’re like me and you’re interested in the holistic arena and read a lot on this topic, you will no doubt see many workshops, courses and other sorts of programmes that address the idea of manifestation. (I send a few myself as you may have seen and read). Often those ads will relate to abundance and money or sometimes relationships and love and other popular areas that many people are keen to address in their lives.

I have a golden rule when I look at things of this nature… and that’s if those programmes are not addressing the root…

Are you one of the millions who suffer from stress?

Whatever age, gender, profession or culture you are, stress is so present in our busy lives!

It is the 21st Century plague, and it can lead to serious illness if it is not managed properly.

|Everyone experiences stress differently in different situations. Sometimes you might be able to tell right away when you’re feeling under stress, however at other times you might keep going without recognising the signs. Stress can affect you both emotionally and physically, and it can affect the way you behave.

Perhaps you might be feeling…
