My husband and I have a weird habit. When we are arguing, as happens in most healthy relationships, we communicate better via text message. It’s strange, I know, and it doesn’t always mean the emotion is reduced, we just find it easier to… well, communicate. We find it easier to get things off our chest, we tend to articulate what we’re feeling easier than when we write, rather than when we speak. We’re not millennials, but we both have IT backgrounds, so I guess we have refined the art of ‘chatting’ online over the last 20-something years. There are others with whom I must verbally speak to in order to articulate what I’m feeling, where I cry it out over the phone or over a cuppa. My point is, everybody communicates differently, and it’s highly dependent on context.Read More
Ever have those days, weeks or even months when you feel like you’re up against it all? And through all the chaos, you wonder who you really are? You recognise yourself, but you feel unheard.

Confused about food? You’re not alone. And talk about information overload in the media. Chocolate is good for you, chocolate is bad for you. Fat is good for you, fat is bad for you. You’d be easily forgiven for having a mild headache when even thinking about what to eat for dinner tonight.

I know how difficult it is to find time to meditate and give your poor brain a rest. That’s why I wrote this easy to read and easy to implement guide on how busy people can meditate easily every day.
One could argue that everything in this world is quickly becoming about convenience. Convenient fast food, convenient transport, convenient bill paying, convenient shopping. But when it comes to feeling, we simply cannot afford to conveniently just ‘let it go’. I have heard a number of clients say to me: ‘I just need to let it go’. Well, that would be the ultimate convenience (in my line of work, anyway!)
More and more clients are coming to me with the same problems. Stressed out and exhausted. Why are the expectations on us so high? And why was it a surprise when my naturopath said I was the first person to come to her with stress levels at 0 out of 100?
Last weekend I had the opportunity to receive my Level II Reiki Certificate from my colleague, very good friend and Reiki Master, Nicki Kuurman. What an amazing and empowering journey! And the timing couldn’t have been better – having just lost my mum and more recently my grandmother. The benefits are immediate, the technique is simple and most importantly the impact is powerful.
