• Life with a Saber-toothed Tiger.

    Here in the Western World, we pride ourselves on the freedoms we enjoy. The rights, the choices and the material wealth we have is often seen as ‘progress’. And of course it is. And yet, the price many of us are now paying for our fast-moving, busy lives filled with doing, achieving, succeeding and acquiring, our 24/7 communication and information…

  • Healthy Homemade Hummus

    I’ve been recommending making hummus for a long time now – to my clients, groups I speak to and on social media and so I thought it was about time I wrote about this fabulous, healthy snack, how to make it and why it’s such a great idea to do it yourself instead of buying those nasty little plastic pots…

  • Tropical Moments and Buckwheat Breakfast.

    Hot flushes, night sweats, poor concentration and low moods are just four of many symptoms that most women experience before, during and after the menopause. For some, they are just a minor nuisance, for others, they can be really debilitating and last for years. The menopause is a natural phase of life, a transition from the fertile years. Puberty in…

  • One word can change how we feel.

    Have you ever noticed that sometimes, when a well-meaning friend, loved one, boss, colleague or whoever is giving you advice, you are left feeling tense, anxious or even angry? Not the intended outcome at all. I recently had this experience when someone I love very dearly was trying to help me with something. As he spoke I could feel my…

  • Nanna’s Beliefs.

    Last year I had to do a presentation for my NLP Train the Trainer course. Inspired by another mind-blowing book I had just read, The Biology of Belief By Professor Bruce Lipton, I decided to focus on beliefs and how powerful they can be, in creating thoughts, that generate feelings, that lead to actions and reactions…that reinforce our beliefs. Bruce…

  • Unconditional Gifts

    I’ve recently had a birthday and was asked by several friends what I’d got, and I know that they meant gifts that I’d received, bought, wrapped and presented in a package. Although I’d been lucky enough to get plenty of these type of gifts, I wanted to reply that I’d received precious time with loved ones, a good belly laugh…

  • Science and Mysticism From Dr Joe

    Last weekend I took the train to Edinburgh to take part in Dr Joe Dispenza’s progressive workshop. I have to be honest, I knew nothing about this neuroscientist/ chiropractor/researcher/lecturer and expert on the brain, mind and human potential until 6 months ago when a friend introduced him into my life and persuaded me to go to this event. I knew…

  • Lentil Soup for the Soul

    It’s a common belief that eating a healthy diet is more expensive. It’s simply not true. What is expensive is eating convenience, processed food labelled as ‘healthy’. If it’s processed, it’s likely to contain a range of chemicals and ‘foods’ that the body doesn’t recognise and so these can often do more harm than good. Nothing is better for us…

  • The Joy of Ginger Tea!

    In 2017, my 84 year old Dad fell into a lake and almost drowned. The result was that he inhaled dirty water and ended up in hospital for several weeks with pneumonia. He was given strong IV antibiotics that were dealing with the infection but making him violently sick. The doctors tried a range of anti-sickness medication, but nothing worked.…
