October 2016 -Big waves and Autumn leaves

Published 14 October 2016

Big waves and Autumn leaves-gratitude, self-compassion and a look ahead to the retreats and events you can enjoy this Autumn with me.

So, I’m here at this point in the year, reflecting  on all I have achieved, overcome, and learnt (aol) personally. I feel this is a time for me to be so grateful and to see the bigger picture, as I pick myself up and keep walking after this year’s big waves. I know many of you have endured a great deal of challenge this year and also enjoyed some ease and even joy. So, now it really is Autumn, the year is drawing gently to a close after what seems to have been a very exciting and unpredictable year in so many ways. But as I always say -it’s all good!


September -a time to reflect

September 2016- Time to celebrate! A big anniversary, embracing change and new beginnings – a look ahead to more mindful self -compassion offerings and training.

Published 11 September 2016

So here we are – arriving at the end of summer and the beginning of the Autumn season.
This is a time of reflection for me. This summer has seen many changes and the birth of many new projects and beginnings. Do have a look through my new website where I hope you will find the new look inviting and easy to navigate. It is also a time of celebration for me. I have arrived at my tenth anniversary in my Chinley practice and I have loved every moment of providing service to the high peak and surrounding areas.

February 2016 – the month of valentines and revisiting goals and aims.

Published 10 February 2016

Welcome to my February 2016 updates and news!

A few years back I was invited to talk on radio Derby about valentines and the impact on couples and also thinking about the wider nature of all our human relationships. It was a very special interview for me as I was able to highlight the importance of all our relationships. I told the story of an enduring friendship that had lasted almost 30 years. This was my friendship with my pen pal  from the Netherlands. At the time I was unaware she was listening in to the show and I talked about the fact that we had never met although we had kept in touch and how I would love to meet her one day.
