The secret to coping with our emotions.

Why is it that we feel happy, inspired, excited and enthusiastic yet other times we feel angry, jealous, sad, overwhelmed and depressed??? We are all too quick to blame someone or something for the way we feel in life. As soon as we say: “I feel”, we give our power away. Easier said than done, [...]

“It’s not what happens on the outside of you, it’s what happens on the inside of you that determines the quality of your life”.

I have many new enquiries from clients and want to be teachers recently. You may be suffering from back pain, want to lose weight, give up smoking, stop drinking, leave a relationship (personal or work), start a new career or stop suffering from emotional/mental health issues.

He said winning the F1 formula [...]

Don’t wait for the approval of others to change

Don’t wait for the approval of others to change. This thinking and belief system comes from the archetype ‘the eternal child’. We are conditioned to get the approval of schooling, parents, religion, governments and our peer group. People tell me they want to improve their movement, reduce their chronic pain, decrease inflammation, get stronger, improve [...]

The time may never be right

There will never be a right time….. It’s always the way isn’t, there will never be a right time, to move to a new house, change jobs, finish a relationship, start a new hobby, take up a sport, start that healthy eating programme, tackle that niggling injury, change your body, give up smoking, stop drinking, [...]

Before approaching 2022, practice gratitude…..
