The New Year is often a time of inner reflection. To ask yourself what have I learned this year? What’s worked well for me that I can build on, or what do I need to do differently. And then to take those lessons forward into the new year.  This New Years Day, we had the […]

Two trees shaped as heads signifying dementia

Over the last few weeks, we’ve spent many hours getting the right level of care sorted for my mother-in-law, who has dementia.  This is round two, as my adopted mum also went on this difficult journey. As everyone knows, it is not an easy or fun road for anyone; the person with dementia or their

Mind full or mindful

In these turbulent, complex and dark times in our world, it’s easy to go down the rabbit hole of thinking traps and lose perspective. This can be a slippery slope and a range of symptoms from not sleeping and increased anxiety to a lack of motivation or more can show up. The words in the

A rabbit going down a rabbit hole

After going down many twisting, uncomfortable rabbit holes, and much soul searching, I am now double vaxed. This was not an easy decision for me to make, as a result I’ve stayed away from posting anything about the covid vaccination subject.   I was recently contacted by a client who was feeling the same way, which has

A ritual for spring equinox

Since ancient times, people have celebrated the arrival of spring or autumn at the equinox.  Every six months, in March and again in September, an equinox splits the Earth’s day almost in half, giving us around 12 hours of daylight and 12 of night.

Two people holding hands, hands covered in mud

Earlier this week, more than ever I was reminded of the importance of reaching out to others for support. We are now in uncharted territory and will all be coping with the stormy waters in different ways. I had encountered a situation which was difficult for me, and this was compounded by other current realities.

Women lying in bed feeling badly hungover and remorseful

The day dawned, a warm and sunny February morning. We were camped at an idyllic spot beside the lake. Husband, myself and our two boys away for the weekend camping and kayaking with another family. An amazing place with great people. I woke feeling dreadful; nauseous, body aching particularly my back (which was my over
