Our behaviour, immune system & the gut

According to Hippocrates, the father of medicine, “All disease begins in the gut.”  2,500 years later and he has been proven to be right! Each time I  am stopped by a charity worker raising money for alzeimers, cancer, depression, parkinson, autism and many more . I always ask them if they have heard of [...]

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 [...]

Creating stability & resilience in times of crisis

Everyone is trying to work their way through life the best as they can. There is no wrong or right and we are all quick to judge others. When we judge, gossip, speak and communicate hurtfully of others it is actually a mirror reflection of how we feel and behave to ourselves. This behaviour comes [...]

Being your true own authentic self

Very few of us feel comfortable being our authentic self because we don’t see ourselves as remarkable. We don’t realize that our authenticity is the one thing (more than anything) that makes us unique. As Shakespeare said in his play Hamlet paraphrasing: "Be true to thou self otherwise thou cannot trust another man”. There [...]

‘Shoot for the moon as even if you miss you will fall among the stars’

If you’re suffering from pain, long term illness or disease, chances are you need a new way of seeing things – that is, you need a paradigm shift. This could get you back to being pain free, healthy, feeling happy and not chronically inflamed. It’s usually fear that holds us back (False, Evidence, Appearing, Real) [...]

‘The way you do anything, is the way you do everything’

Why does the saying ring true with everything from our personal to work life: "The way you do anything, is the way you do everything". The way someone handles their money, mows the lawn, organises their desk at work, cooks the food, tidies the house, disposes of their rubbish not only reflects the way they [...]

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 [...]

Looking at the emotion anxiety

Post Covid 19 we are left with more anxiety than ever before , why is this? Well firstly anxiety is inflammation and most of us are already chronically inflamed. This may not show as extra weight in the body but can show by so many other sources (including gut microbiome). Anxiety is just one of [...]

Buddahs second arrow

Have you heard about Buddhas second arrow? There is something philosophical in the phase 'unlucky in life'. It can feel like the world is against us with one thing happening after the other: a parking ticket, a flat tyre, a job loss, a break up, a cancelled flight, an illness, a bereavement........and so on. There [...]

Looking positively on the emotion Sadness

The immortal poet and writer of  human condition, the Lebanese American Kahil Gilbran once wrote; “The deeper that sorrow carves in your being, the more joy you can contain". There is a truth, sadness shapes the contours of our soul, and our mental character in a fundamental way. Just as an engraver uses force to [...]
