Maturing

Maturing

I’ve been reflecting on growing old this week.  I took a photo and noticed the lines around my eyes in a way I haven’t before.  My son even did a portrait of me and drew a line right in the middle of my eyebrows, where I have a very distinct line. At the same time my...
November Nights

November Nights

Through November I will be running a number of free sessions to support you.  I want us to come together in community and connection, something that is so important in our lives, and particularly this year. As the nights grow darker and we start to go inward, these...
Running away from what hurts

Running away from what hurts

I want to tell you a story about pain and resistance.  Two weeks ago I signed up for Nicky Clinch’s Listening to Life programme.  I said yes in a heartbeat.  And then it happened, instantly.  I said no.  The resistance came in so strong it took over my whole body and...

My year in books

My year in books

At the beginning of the year I was pondering on whether or not to do a speed reading course.  You see I love books and I love reading, but I’m a slow reader.  However it didn’t feel quite right, to rush through beautiful books.  And then in February I started my...
Be you

Be you

“To be beautiful means to be yourself.  You don’t need to be accepted by others.  You need to accept yourself.” Thich Nhat Hanh   The saying goes “be yourself, everyone else is taken” by Oscar Wilde.  But why is it so hard sometimes to show up as we...
What is nutritional therapy?

What is nutritional therapy?

It seems crazy to me that nutrition is seen as an alternative therapy. Without food and water we’d die, surely then it’s fundamental to our health? Our brain needs glucose to function, among many other things! Our cells need fats and a whole host of vitamins and...
