Live for the present and not the past

Mindfulness…this ACTUAL moment is all you can control…so stop dwelling in the past or worrying about your future…it's futile and extremely STRESSFUL. Men think “I can work through this” and the term going in their cave is very true. Men generally keep problems to themselves and see it as a weakness to admit they need [...]

Hypnotherapy – a real stress buster … the truth by Jan Haley Brightwood

We're familiar with many causes of stress 'out there' but sometimes the most disturbing ones are 'in here', where we can't understand why we get triggered in certain types of situations, no matter how strongly or how often we resolve that we're going to 'be different next time'.

Now is the winter of our discontent?

I grew up in the 1970s, now a decade tinted with much nostalgia. We’ve had big screen remakes of Starsky & Hutch and the A-Team; flick through the TV channels and you can still find The Sweeney beating criminals, whilst Tom and Barbara still try to be self-sufficient in leafy Surbiton.

A catastrophic riding accident left him teetering between life and death, and as he was carried lifeless, back to the family estate, the transformation was already beginning in his subconscious. The seigneur of Périgord had [...]

“Soiled pants” … the power of our sub-conscious mind

When we are in a conscious state we are able e.g. to plan our future, reflect on our past, be creative, imaginative and mindful; “so the [...]

Therapist…“Be a wall not a balloon”…what the hell does that mean??

I was really interested to read Richard’s experiences when confronted by a colleague. As someone who has struggled to deal with low self-esteem and sought specialist help, with little change on various occasions, I can completely concur with him about the craziness of the human mind.
