Let’s make it good one…

So this is Christmas And what have you done? Another year over And a new one just begun Another year over and a new one just begun. This time of year is often a time of reflecting on the year past and looking forward perhaps to what the new year is going to bring.  Perhaps […]


Fear stopped me being me for too many years. Fear stopped me leaving a job that was well paid but not ‘me’. Fear told me ‘who was I to be paid for being me, that is not realistic and I should be grateful for what I have’. Fear stopped me from saying what I really […]

Life Is…

Finish this statement: Life is a… When I look back at the toughest times of my life I can see through those times I learnt so much about myself, my limiting thoughts and beliefs which being aware of them has enabled me to change all areas of my life for the better. It doesn’t mean […]

Perception v Reality

My heart started to race, everything was in the car!  I had been travelling home after being away so everything from my toiletries to my laptop was in the car. (Interestingly I was more worried about the laptop than the car!). I’ve never had a car stolen before all I was thinking was the hassle […]

Written by Napoleon Hill in 1938, Outwitting The Devil looks at the root […]

This short video explains more about the benefits of taking some time to review your life […]

The problem with positive thinking…

When I think of positive affirmations for some reason I think of an unhappy middle aged man saying to himself in a mirror “every day in every way I am getting better”. I guess I have picked up that imagery from a film some time ago in the distant past! Clients at my Cornwall hypnotherapy clinic […]
