Bruce Lee: “Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”

We are more likely to learn in life, school, work and relationships by the mistakes we make rather than the positive outcomes. Admitting to any sort of mistake or misdemeanour that takes great courage. Most of us wiggle our way out and play the child, victim, saboteur or prostitute archetype (survival archetypes). This is not [...]

Therapists – “Don’t hide your light under a bushel”

If you hide your light under a bushel, you keep your abilities or good qualities hidden from other people. Whether you're a movement or manual therapist now is the time to shine than ever before. Your services are much needed as the world begins to re-open and resume business. You are a key worker, whether you [...]

The journey of transformation begins now

Are you ready to change? Or are you waiting for things to return to normal? Of course we want to normalise, but what would have happened if we had carried on?

Five reflections from the Corona Virus

1.Non-Judgement - Many of us have come to realise that some of our ideas actually create separation and segregation from those who we love and care about and to heal we must alter our language and expression.  We need to observe staying in the moment rather than having fear take over, connecting with each other [...]

Virus -It’s not about the germ, its about the terrain (immune system)

Our immune system or terrain is everything and anything. Our internal terrain not only effects our health but our behaviours, emotions and choices too.

Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside awakens – Carl Jung

We have now a generation of people who spend many hours in front of a computer monitor or a cell phone and who are so [...]

Facing your own self shadow – Part 2

My first interaction of the shadow self many years ago when I opened my Pilates studio in St.Helens. I was visited by a fellow Pilates teacher who wanted to open a studio and was told to stay my side of the bridge. As you all know I am from Merseyside. I now understand that the [...]

Addictions – painkillers, smoking, drinking, shopping, exercise, sugar & sex

This week I appeared on an ITV news feature on painkillers with my client Claire Madin. Most people will seek me out because of my Pilates and Yoga teacher qualifications. However when they come to me I always treat the person and not the disease. Pilates and Yoga is, and has been medically proven to [...]
