Stress & Regeneration: The 2 Essential Phases You MUST Understand About Health – Part 1

What if a Disease is a Meaningful and Intelligent Process?

If there is one thing that I have learned during my years as a Psychotherapist it is that there is always a reason behind why we do what we do. Whether it’s an eating disorder, self-harm, anger, smoking addiction or anxiety – there is always a reason for its manifestation. Up until recently, I used to work only with psychological issues, however, I have now started to work with physical.. Read More

Why EFT for Weight-Loss Failed Me…

A day in 2008 – (the date is irrelevant…. most of this happens every day). I wake up. There it is again. The same feeling that I get most mornings. It’s a ‘binge-hangover’. I feel ill. I have a sickish feeling inside. I am starving, but unable to face food. I walk into the bathroom, silently having the same conversation with myself that I do each morning. Today is going..

A Near-Death Experience – What She Learned…

Recently I was in Brazil co-teaching Quantum Activism workshops with Dr. Amit Goswami. It was a wonderful experience and I got to meet lots of lovely people. I spoke about near-death experiences during one of the sessions, and shortly afterwards a workshop participant named Monica (real name, with permission) came up to me and told me that she had had an NDE around 35 years ago. She was kind enough.. Read More

5 Ways to Break Free From Binge Eating…

The beautiful thing about writing a blog is that I get to share some personal experiences with you. Rather than just coming from a ‘therapy perspective’, I get to express views from a personal place too…and indeed, personal experiences of recovery and progress are powerful because they bring hope – hope that no matter how bad things may get, progress is possible. Binge eating disorder has been a huge part.. Read More

The EFT Protocol

Here is the EFT protocol. If you are wanting to work on specific issues then please feel free to book therapy sessions. Focus on the issue to be cleared. Rate it from 0-10. Ascertain whether it has a colour, shape or emotion. Formulate the set-up statement: “Even though I have this……., I love and accept myself anyway” tap on the karate chop point and repeat your set-up statement three times… Read More

Are You Your Own Greatest Obstacle?

I see it often enough: a client comes in wanting help with certain issues. They’re unhappy and suffering emotionally and in some cases desperate for help. However, the most important pre-requisite for change is asking ourselves whether we’re really ready. Are we ready to explore the depths of our behaviour, and are we ready to be really honest with ourselves?   Most people think that they are ready, willing and.. Read More

Our Relationship with Food – Biological or Psychological?

I have had a tumultuous relationship with food over the years. In fact, during one dark phase of my life I struggled terribly with binge eating disorder – not something that many people understood. No matter how much discipline I tried to exert upon myself, I just could not stop. It was as if there was a food demon that would awaken within me each afternoon, ready to devour anything..

Terror, Us and the Absence of Love

Yesterday I came across an account by Psychiatrist Dr. Emanuel Tanay, who in my opinion, correctly pointed out that there are very few people who are true fanatics. The vast majority of people of all faiths are peaceful, but it is the fanatics, he stated, that quite often rule. A German aristocrat during the Nazi rule, Dr. Tanay lost everything and ended up in a concentration camp. Although he passed.. Read More

Does Traditional Therapy Need a Facelift?

I believe it does. I am a Psychotherapist. My aim is to help individuals attain a greater sense of inner peace and I get to glimpse (very personally), into the lives of others on a daily basis. I observe their pain and obstacles, and in many cases during the process of therapy, I also witness the beginnings of a shift in their consciousness. I have found that sometimes using the.. Read More
