Space to rent in my head…only happy thoughts need apply!

Space to rent in my head…only happy thoughts need apply!
Ever noticed how you end up thinking the same thoughts over and over again? There seem to be certain thoughts (and beliefs...) that function on autopilot and we think them over and over again each day. If the Law of Attraction states that we get what we focus on, then maybe we need to do a bit of head decluttering! Here are some ideas on how to create some space for better quality thoughts... 1 – Reduce overwhelm I was chatting to a girlfriend the other day after she had been admitted to…continue reading →

The ‘Qi’ To Your Leap Of Faith

The ‘Qi’ To Your Leap Of Faith
It's too difficult!! It won't work for me, it will hurt!! It's impossible!! This is how it can feel sometimes when we are confronted with a painful situation in life and for a moment consider taking action to change it. These and many other thoughts become the excuses that cause us to stay stuck and to wallow in whatever it is we say we don't want. Switch your energy on Consider that the opposite thoughts may be actually be truer. 'It's easy' 'It will work for me' 'It will be enjoyable' 'It is…continue reading →

How Fear Affects Birth

How Fear Affects Birth
In order to understand how to make childbirth easier, first you have to understand fear and how it affects the body during birth. It is estimated that over 80% of women are afraid of giving birth and when we see how birth is portrayed on TV and hear all the horror stories told to us by our friends, it is not hard to understand why we are so scared. When we are afraid, our bodies release a cocktail of chemicals that cause us to tense up and prepare to fight the danger ahead…continue reading →

Transcending Your Body Image

Transcending Your Body Image
Today we identify more and more with our body. We are acutely aware of the way it looks – too fat, hardly too thin, and God forbid that we should look our age. We surgically remove what we do not want, artificially implant whatever we believe is missing, collectively spend an infinite amount of time, and millions of pounds "looking perfect", and maybe not realising that, ultimately, what we are truly seeking is acceptance, approval and love. We all want to be loved, but we mistakenly believe that we must first be perfect…continue reading →

Do You Need A Hug?

Do You Need A Hug?
If you tend to rationalise the crap out of feeling alone, especially on 'Saint bloody Valentines day', well I understand. Maybe you question why you haven't got that special someone with you and berate yourself with some bugger's reason why you should have. Perhaps you rage at the vulgarity of Valentines commercialism and scorn the couple's who fell for it; displaying their loved up life on Facebook like a badge of honour. Perhaps you quietly, secretly, wish them a nasty break up. Perhaps you hide your heart in the Haagen-Dazs pot – cookies…continue reading →

Stillness for Easy Manifestation

Stillness for Easy Manifestation
Like the power of compound interest in wealth creation, every little prayer quietly adds up and then eventually pays dividends. If we are listening, that is, to the still small voice within, guiding us from a higher place. I regularly review my dream list, tick off what's come to fruition and adjust my current wish list. It is so inspiring to see the number of ticks on my list, especially when I look back into journals from ten years ago. And this is when I really got it, that prayers can take time…continue reading →

Healing in the Womb

Healing in the Womb
When Stefanie called me that afternoon, I could detect from the worry in her voice that something was wrong. She had gone for a routine scan that morning and had been told that her baby presented a dark spot in one of her lungs. Further tests were needed and she and her partner would have to be referred to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. After reassuring her as best I could, I invited her to come for a physical journey as soon as possible. Stefanie, normally very open to the work,…continue reading →

Drop The Agenda & Get In The Flow

Drop The Agenda & Get In The Flow
When you drop the AGENDA about what life SHOULD be, or look like, you are open to the the flow that is coming through you anyway. An agenda about life tends to skew your perspective and rarely puts you in the discovery mode that facilitates an alive and energetically free state of being. Rather it has you trying to fix or control life, your experience and the experience of those around you. The way we cause ourselves suffering is by stopping the flow of experience. As we stop the flow, we feel the…continue reading →

3 Minutes to the Divine

3 Minutes to the Divine
This is a meditation that came to me during time spent sitting with my clients and doing deep relaxation. At the heart of Eastern philosophy and at the very core of Chinese Medicine is the concept that we don't know... that when are honest and look at ourselves and the world around us we discover that really we don't know anything. It does not mean that we don't know certain information and details, of course we do, but Life itself, the how and the why, remains a big mystery. So our lives are…continue reading →

Finally Free from Grief

One of the things I find fascinating with the work I do is that oftentimes the true nub of the situation, the thing that really needs to be looked at to resolve the presenting issue, is a complete surprise, and can even seem unrelated. In this blog, I want to tell you the amazing story of Annie* who met the deepest of grief to gain the greatest of confidence. Annie came to me because she wanted to gain a sense of confidence. She felt timid of life itself but was feeling a deep…continue reading →
