This may seem like an odd thing to be writing about given I’ve just spent a wonderful week in Italy, but since I now don’t have anything planned until my trip to India in October, I am starting to get cabin fever already.
The problem with having a ‘secure’ job is that generally, your boss likes you to be there to, you know, work. That really puts paid to any idea of working from a beach or my hotel balcony like I have been doing the past week.
I figured since more and more people are going away less and less, either because they feel they can’t take the time away from work or they simply can’t afford it, I might share a few of my own tricks for feeling like you’ve had a holiday, even when you haven’t. Continue reading →
When I say today, since today is actually Sunday, for most people I mean tomorrow, but tomorrow doesn’t sound as punchy. Anyway, you can do this tomorrow too, just don’t put it off ’til the day after that, or that, or that…
Let’s get right down to it then, if you work the normal office grind it can really get you down. Here are my five biggest helpers to get me through a long day feeling chilled – if you’ve got anymore, please share them in the comments section to help other readers too Continue reading →
When was the last time you celebrated something you’d accomplished?
When I asked myself this question yesterday, the answer didn’t surprise me. I couldn’t remember. After a while I came up with the fact I went for a meal when I got promoted in December. Woop-di-do.
It has come to my attention that most of us do gooding humans have a tendency to beat ourselves black and blue when we do something we think of as wrong but refuse to congratulate ourselves when something goes right. Continue reading →
And what an Easter it is. Now I’m not remotely religious (too much catholic school as a child), but I do love a four-day weekend.
For most people still working for other people, Easter is a chance to chill, go and see family and friends and enjoy the sun.
I’m currently sat looking at the view above, in my parents kitchen in North Wales. I love coming home and seeing the animals (and my parents) but this year I nearly didn’t. Last weekend 20ft snow drifts threatened my Easter weekend – the roof blew off the shed, took out the phone line and (duh duh duuuhhhhh) internet, they had a power cut and the generator wouldn’t start and despite 4x4s and a tractor, couldn’t get out for 3 days.

So it’s been a while since I gave away anything from my therapy toolbox so I figured I needed to change that. Not only am I giving away one of my favourite tools for changing your perspective and feeling good about your next steps, I’m also offering to give you personalised feedback and further questions to explore if you want to submit your form online (just drop me an email to say you’d like feedback once you’ve sent it). It’s completely free with no obligation.
You don’t always get what you want. Karma’s a bitch – because it travels with you through lives, meaning even if you act like a freaking saint now, you still could get stung because you happened to be a serial killer in a past life (I’m not sure what I was – always been a bit freaked out by the whole concept if I’m honest – but I could have been!).
All the talk about creating a life you want, it can happen, but for me it’s more about learning to see the good stuff and learning to learn from the bad stuff. Continue reading →
For today’s blog post, I didn’t want to give you more reading, I wanted to SHOW you how hypnotherapy can reduce stress. Although there are a lot of articles that have accumulated on this site over the past year and a half, most of them talk about actually taking action to make a change.
I sat down recently and had a think about what I could provide you, my readers with that would really help you to take that action. To figure this out I had a look back through the work I’ve done with past clients and the sorts of problems that they came to me with. Continue reading →
