I’ve been invited to step in last minute to give a Lifetalk on Tuesday 9th August.
I’ll be sharing with you some of the many techniques I use day to day when I’m coaching people. It’ll be a whirlwind interactive session, you’ll get the chance to experience many different aspects of personal Development, so if you’ve ever wondered how coaching can benefit you or your business then this session will seek to answer those questions.
This session is not about putting people on the spot or sharing experiences but it will be a chance for you to work with other people or on your own and discover what your mind could do with some of the tools you’ll receive in this session.
LifeTalks is open to everyone so please share the event. it’s on Facebook and Meet up
In just 1 day, I’ll give you the tools you need to rethink what, when and how you eat.
This is a Masterclass; so the day is going to be jammed with information to give you the knowledge you require to make a permanent change for a healthier Lifestyle.

Practical advice on regaining control back over your relationship with food. (and with yourself)
This is not a diet, but a practical look at what our behaviours are around food, how they got there and how we can re-learn new healthy habits.
I’m bringing my knowledge and skills in NLP, Hypnosis, Fitness and Nutrition together to give you the head start you need to make a permanent change.
If you have been thinking:
“I really should do something about my health/weight/fitness”
“My eating is just out of control, all the time”
“I don’t know where to start”
“It’s so confusing, knowing what is right to eat theses days”
“I’ve got no will power”
Then, this 1 Day Masterclass is the right thing for you to do. Call me if you would like more details on the day.
Spaces are limited for this first Masterclass. More coming soon.
Are you happy in your own skin?
In my day to day life, I’m asking people to move outside their usual comfort zone as generally they are coming to see me to make some change in their life. Change is a good thing.
My role as a therapist is to support people to feel comfortable enough to make a move in the right direction. This move or change can start very slowly by imagining the change, or day dreaming what it might be like to….? This way our sub-conscious mind starts to get a feel for what it might be like to do something different or behave differently from what you are used to.
We all use our imaginations to think about situations but sometimes we veer off into a disaster movie image of a situation that has an adverse effect on us. My role is to teach people how to play the relevant movies in their minds that give them the results they are seeking.
I’d like you to learn to play with your imaginations again. Imagine what you’d like to do or how you’d like to spend your days, weeks, months… Develop who you are so that you can be happy being “Just Me” Who ever you are.
It’s coming up to that time of the year again. Exam stress is starting to gain momentum and for some people it can be completely debilitating. Some of us love the feeling we get when we are under pressure to perform and it provides us with an extra boost in motivation to achieve greater results.
If you are one of those people who’s struggling at the moment, help is available. Just a few sessions may be all it takes to get you back on track and put your mind as ease. When our minds are at ease we are able to concentrate, learn, remember and recall information easily. Remember the feeling of relief when your exams are all over? Well, that’s the feeling I can install in you. But, even better than that, these techniques will be with you for life, not just for the next few months. just imagine how you could use them in your future?
Spring is in the air. You can see in the daylight hours becoming longer, smell it within the changing scents in the hedgerows and gardens and feel it as the sun warms our skin and our energy lightens.
Spring is also the time when wedding season begins and couples start the final preparations for their ceremonies and plan for their honeymoons. It’s a joyous time for most couples but unfortunately for some individuals, weddings are a time to dread!
I’ve been in conversations with Barnett International wedding photographers recently to discuss some of the ways in which Hypnosis and NLP can help their clients.
Here are a few examples of issue I have helped over the years:
The best man speech. Nerves, stuttering, blushing, panic!
Everyone will be looking at me for the whole day! Self-esteem, confidence,
I need to lose weight or tone up to look my best for the photographs. Weight management, motivation
We’d like to go abroad but I can’t fly. Fears and phobias, Managing change
I’ve never lived with anyone before. Communication skills, managing change
What if it all goes wrong? Anxiety and self doubt
Talk to someone about your worries. Adrian and Bergit from Barnett International are experts at putting people at ease, they have a Facebook page with helpful tips every week.
I am more than happy to have chat with you about your wedding and any issues that you may have.
My Tip.- Give me a call today. It’s easy, reassuring and puts you mind at rest so that you can enjoy the wedding planning as well as you BIG Day.
Kick start New year
Happy New Year to you all.
Have you made any New years resolutions? Have you broken any yet???
It’s the time of year when we sit and think and make plans for the coming months. There are numerous ways in which we do this but I’m going to look at – Are you motivated by moving towards or away from something?
Here’s an example:
Sometimes we reflect on past years and we might talk about “I don’t want another like the last one!” (Moving away from)
I’m planning on improving my fitness this year (Moving towards)
My challenge to you this month is to learn to listen to yourself and notice when you say what you actually mean rather than, just what think you mean. Do you want your focus to be in the past or on your future? I hope you know the answer to this.
When we set ourselves goals (new year resolutions) we naturally move towards them, given the right motivation. Goals set our minds on a journey of exploring what it might be like to have that goal – Do you ever imagine yourself already on holiday or what you will do at the weekend? This is your mind preparing itself for a change and it doesn’t matter if it’s a big or small change, the process is the same. We all need time to adjust to something, minutes or months/years it all starts deep within our minds before we can be ready to make plans take action.
Good luck with your goals this year. Make the first goal to set goals
October is a month where we start to notice the seasons are changing as the daylight hours become shorter and we settle into a different routine. It’s also the time for starting new things as the Autumn term starts at University and schools across the county. For me, I’ve had calls from concerned parents regarding their children who have just started Uni and are away from home, doing something new, around new people and having to manage their lives differently. Anxiety can be a natural feeling we all have at some point in our lives but it’s when it starts to get in the way of everyday living that we look to get help. The good news is that I have received these calls quickly and that Anxiety has been recognised as something which Hypnotherapy can help with.
Please come and see me if this is something that is having an impact on your life. There are lots of techniques within NLP that can give you some practical ways of reducing anxiety and bring back balance and calm into your life. Keeping you focused on enjoying the experience of being at university and all the benefits for your future career.
The other seasonal calls I receive this time or year are Spider Phobias. Here’s a text from a client i saw last week for the first session – “I just wanted to send you a massive Thanks You, in the last 24hrs I have had to deal with 3 “Mates” on my own. I did it with no swearing and hardly any goose pimples, and cleared them away myself. I amazed myself”
I’m really excited to announce that I’m going to be a guest speaker at the South West ANLP Conference in Taunton this October. Tickets are available now for. I’m speaking on Friday – “Applied NLP for health management for individuals and businesses”
This is a great opportunity to talk about how LifeMOT uses NLP in groups and how diverse it’s uses can be. I’ll be giving evidence and case studies to support our work and talking about how we have adapted our workshops to support our clients achieve the results that they want. I will also be talking about where we’re heading in the future with our group work as well as developing more business links to support employees at work.
I look forward to seeing you there. Please also look out for the LifeTalks I host as we have some brilliant speakers attending there and the group is growing each month.
Unfortunately, the ANLP Conference has been postponed, But… I’m still doing my pre-talk on Thursday 1st October at The Vic Inn. No need to travel to Taunton now to hear about LifeMOT and NLP for health. Reserve your seat here please.
“Oh, I didn’t know Hypnotherapists did that” is a statement I hear quite a bit. So I thought I’d write a bit on what I do as I can’t speak for other Hypnotherapists.We will all have different skills that we bring to our work and life and Hypnotherapists are no different. I use a combination of NLP, Nutrition, mental health training, and Hypnotherapy. What this means is I have a bank of skills that are practical and work with you on a conscious level and other skills that work with the sub-conscious. I use these skills in one to one therapy, Community Groups with LifeMOT CIC or within a business setting.
I recently mapped my practice to find out for myself what I did the most of and where I spent most of my time. The nice surprise for me is that I spend most of my time helping people to manage a change and catch up with themselves. This could be;
I’ve been given promotion and don’t feel like I can do the job,
The children have all left home and don’t know what to do or who I am,
I find myself single again
I can’t get control of eating and keep falling into the same patterns
I’m just not managing very well and feel as though there is something more but don’t know how to get there
Alongside this work I also spend a fair bit of time working with Anxiety. This can range from feeling stressed all the time to a full blown panic attack/phobia that restricts out ability to lead a normal life.
But, I also do weight management, stop smoking and supervision which can be clinical (for other therapists) or business support (keeping you on track)
I hope this helps answer a few questions for you. Yo can always give me a call to discuss and issues (confidentially)
What a brilliant, interesting practical course. I’m now a NADA practitioner. So… what does this mean for my clients?
Well, I’m not quite sure yet to be honest with you. There are so many ways in which I can use this to add to my practice or to start something new – A community Auricular Acupuncture class?
I know that it will fit in well with the sessions for Anxiety management, as it promotes “A clearer mind, a feeling of well-being and relaxation”. But it is also widely used for the reduction of craving in substance misuse, including prescription drugs and reduction of withdrawal symptoms. It also helps with promoting a good sleep pattern.
Coming along to see me for a session is not just about Hypnotherapy. I use all my knowledge and skills to help you achieve the result you want. This could be diet advice – You are what you eat, a practical NLP technique to allow you to explore an issue and then you have a skill that will be with you for life, relaxation techniques such as Self-Hypnosis or Mindfulness, Hypnotherapy for a specific issue or ongoing coaching/Supervision sessions to keep you on track and progressing in life.
There are so many ways in which I can support you. Please give me a call if you would like to discuss your particular needs. 07958956216 or 01326372156 email
