I have a variety of tools in my tool box, and one of my favourites is EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique. What I love about this tool is that it is so simple and gentle and yet so powerful. It can be used on absolutely anything and it is a great self-help tool. It works
Hypnotherapy can address many aspects of physical activity all of which can ultimately lead to better performance. It can help in goal setting and motivation when training and help refine technique.

What differentiates a top class sportsman to a top class sportsman who wins? It is what is going on in his mind. This is the icing on the cake of any performance, whether it be an athlete, dancer or musician.
To perform well in any activity you need to be relaxed, focused and able to visualise a positive outcome. Before embarking on any activity there needs to be a vision of a positive outcome. It is pointless starting to train for the marathon if, in the back of your mind, there is a niggly thought which says “I will never do this” because then you won’t!

You have come off the phone from a conversation with a friend and your internal voice is raging at you. “You did it again! Why? Why? Why? I thought you said you wouldn’t do that again.” You feel angry with yourself, disappointed maybe, or even ashamed. You had promised yourself you would never EVER behave
Do you toss and turn at night? Unable to sleep because you can’t switch your mind off? This is a very common problem, especially if lives have become busy or work is stressful. A very simple activity to help with this is to write a journal last thing at night prior to going to sleep.
It was so embarrassing. I was sure it was Judy, this morning in town. I saw this woman in the queue in the post office as I was leaving. I was so pleased, because I hadn’t seen her for ages, and we get on really well. She had her back to me, but when I
We all know that getting a good night’s sleep is important, and we have all experienced what it feels like after a bad night. And if I were to ask you why this is important you would probably say it is to recharge our batteries. But what does “recharging our batteries” actually mean? There are
