Keep Moving – Just Not Necessarily Forward

I'm going out on a limb somewhat here but bear with me. So, it was World Mental Health Day last Friday. A wonderful, empowering day that is getting more and more people opening up about their emotional wellbeing (I have a problem with the Mental Health tag but that's just me, probably a generational thing).… Continue reading Keep Moving – Just Not Necessarily Forward

Does Your Self Talk Go Something Like This?

You've probably been doing this for years haven't you? We'll unfortunately there isn't a magic pill or technique to turn it off instantly... However... if you are willing to start with using just 5 minutes of your time a day in to practicing a positive exercise for stilling the mind things will begin to shift.… Continue reading Does Your Self Talk Go Something Like This?

I did an EFT session with a new client this week she had been referred from a career coach friend who felt there were emotional issues getting in the way so I said I'd have a chat with the client.

Resilience – The Art Of ‘Bouncebackability’

Back in the early noughties a football manager here in the UK coined the phrase 'bouncebackability' in reference to his team's ability to 'bounce back' from adversity. I can't remember if he was praising said ability or looking for that characteristic in his players, either way the term soon stuck in the UK football world… Continue reading Resilience – The Art Of ‘Bouncebackability’

You Are What You Eat

This is a great graphic but of course it isn't as easy as just changing your diet. So many people are how they are because of emotional eating, so many overweight people have negative events in their past and are trying to mask their feelings by using comfort foods which unfortunately are low in nutrition… Continue reading You Are What You Eat

You Can’t Go Back In Time So Start From Now

Often when a client has had a traumatic incident in the past they become stuck in that moment and can't move on with their lives. Also there is often a desire to go back to how things were before said incident. That isn't going to happen as I'm pretty sure that time travel hasn't been… Continue reading You Can’t Go Back In Time So Start From Now

IEMT – what it really stands for

If you were to go to the IEMT website you will find a great explanation of what IEMT is and how it works but it can be a bit technical and wordy, which is great if you are a therapist or practitioner in other modalities looking to add this amazing set of tools to your… Continue reading IEMT – what it really stands for

There Doesn’t Have To Be Anything ‘Wrong’ With You…

...for you to seek the help of a therapist or a life coach. There is still a lot of stigma around mental health and wellbeing and certainly here in the UK people don't readily seek help from or even have a therapist. I wonder if it's a legacy, especially amongst men, of the old imperial… Continue reading There Doesn’t Have To Be Anything ‘Wrong’ With You…

Linguistic Indicators For Depression

In our IEMT training a lot of emphasis is placed on listening to the language used by the client. We especially listen for pronoun use and absolutist language will usually be challenged (depending on context). Language use will reflect on a client's behavioural patterns which are working at the sub-conscious level so the client is… Continue reading Linguistic Indicators For Depression

Metaphors Of Movement – what is it and what can it do for you?

First let me say Metaphors of Movement isn't a therapy per se. It isn't outcome driven, by this I mean it doesn't relieve or fix an emotional or behavioural problem. What it can do is reveal what behaviours, beliefs and values you hold, often at a subconscious level and indicate how these are holding you… Continue reading Metaphors Of Movement – what is it and what can it do for you?
