  • New Podcast: Alleviate Suffering by Changing Your Perspective

    The latest episode of my podcast is online. In this one, I focus on how we can deal with difficult thoughts and feelings by changing our perspective. It can’t have escaped your notice that we are living through some pretty crazy times. 2020 will definitely go down in history as a year of uncertainty, unpredictability and unprecedented change; a year when the very foundations of our lives were seriously challenged. If, like me, you’re living in the UK …

  • New Podcast: Does Worry Blight Your Life?

    The next episode in my podcast series “Bringing You Back Into Balance” is now online. In this podcast I focus on worry. If there’s one thing that can really cast a shadow over a person’s inner world it is worry. We all do it from time to time but for some people it becomes an incessant activity that has a seriously detrimental effect on their happiness and wellbeing. Did you know that worry really is an optional activity. It may not seem that way initially to someone who …

  • New Video on YouTube: Is it Time to Stop Shoulding on Yourself?

    Check out my latest video on YouTube: Is it Time to Stop Shoulding on Yourself Are you always ‘shoulding’ on yourself? Always telling yourself you should be doing this …you should be doing that? Living in the Land of Should is not fun. It’s a place full of duty, obligation and resentment. In this video, I present a simple 4-step process to use instead. It will help you to reconnect with your personal power so that you, and not the harsh voice of your inner critic, are making the conscious decisions in your life…

  • Find a Creative Pursuit for a Happier, More Balanced Life

    The psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi says that “when we are involved in creativity, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.” I can certainly vouch for that. The times when I feel the most alive, energised, ‘in the flow’ and relaxed are usually when I’m doing something creative. I love to knit, crochet and sew, and one of my favourite pastimes is making knitted toys and little rag dolls to give away as gifts. These activities really help me to …

  • How to Find the Limiting Beliefs You Are Holding

    It is said that we are what we believe ourselves to be. Our beliefs are so powerful that they create our reality. They shape our thinking, our feelings, our behaviour, the actions we take or do not take – and as a consequence our experience of life. Holding positive beliefs about ourselves serves us well. They cause us to feel good; they empower us and fuel healthy behaviours. Limiting beliefs, on the other hand, undermine our well-being. They fuel unhealthy emotions and …

  • How to Stop Caring About What Other People Think of You

    How concerned are you about what people think of you? Does it bother you occasionally or a lot of the time? We are all influenced by other people’s opinions to some degree, sometimes without realising it. We might wear an outfit to a social event because we think other people will like it, for example, or refrain from expressing an opinion at work to avoid being thought unintelligent. This is a consequence of our social conditioning and our need to belong – to be accepted and liked …

  • Is it Time to Reclaim Your Life?

    It’s the start of a new year – and a new decade. A time when many of us feel an inner nudge to make changes. It’s certainly a good time to reflect and consider the direction our lives are taking. I believe one of the most important questions to ask ourselves is this: Whose life am I actually living? My own or the one other people want for me? Are you living the life you want, or are you still caught up in trying to meet other people’s expectations? As a therapist, I see …

  • Where’s Your Problem Really Coming From?

    Every day in my practice I work with people who are smart, empowered and committed to bettering their lives. They may be facing challenges, but they show up to appointments, and they invest time, money and energy on their personal growth. Usually, they’ve appeared at my door because their situation has come to a head. They’re feeling distressed, confused and unhappy and need some external support to work through their issues. One of the things I bring to the table is …

  • Natural Ways to Lift Your Mood

    Let me ask, do you feel helpless when you’re going through a tough time and feeling down? As if there’s nothing you can do to get yourself out of that state? We’d all like to feel good all of the time, but, inevitably, we go through periods when we feel demotivated and irritable, or worse unhappy and upset. I can recall a time in my younger life when I struggled to manage my emotional state. Feelings of tension and unease were my constant companions …
