Living your ‘best life ever’

imagesFR6WKVX0I was pleased to work with a lovely man this week… he wanted to live his best life ever and felt that there was ‘part’ of him that wanted to stay as he was and maintain the status quo in his life; and another ‘part’ of him that wanted to ‘really live his life’ which meant some significant changes were needed…

When you have two [or more parts] of yourself in conflict it is time to work with them, and let them have their say – why are they in conflict? What skills or knowledge might they share to improve the situation?

If you have two or more parts in your life in conflict then why not come and see me?



Hypnotherapy & Reiki in Thailand

I had a great time in Thailand sharing my hypnotherapy & reiki skills in such a beautiful location. Whilst on holiday, people often do some ‘thinking’ and ‘dreaming’ and ‘what if’ type conversations with themselves or with others!

I was truly honoured to do some hypnotherapy sessions with people enjoying their holiday. It was the perfect place to set out with some meditation, lovely breathing and being mindful… just listening to the sounds around you, so different to the sounds you hear in UK!

I focused on ‘abundance hypnotherapy’ which were bespoked for each client. I particularly like to introduce colours, sounds, smells, tastes and textures into my hypnotherapy sessions, plus some co-created affirmations and actions.

I suppose being in a relaxed state of mind already, allowed clients to be more open to hypnosis and this was demonstrated with how deeply clients went and how awakened they felt afterwards.

Be a great mate… men’s mental health matters

So, what makes a great mate? Well taking inspiration from some great advice online I have compiled the following ideas…

What a mate might say…

‘How are you?’2-men-talking-re-size

Mate’s reply goes something like  ‘good’ or ‘I’m ok’

What a great mate might say…

How are you? – Get’s the same response as above AND they see something or hear something that they get a feeling about… maybe there might be something that isn’t being said.

So a great mate might choose to follow up with something like this…

‘You sure?’

[this is an opening question – it says you are there and interested]

‘Great, I am here if you need me’

[this says, I hear your answer and respect your privacy, and I am willing to be a great mate’]

‘Much on at work?’ ‘you been on holiday yet?’ ‘how’s the family’

[this says, I’m up for a conversation, a great mate has good ears and uses them]

“what did you think of last weeks game’ or  ‘how’s the house coming on’

[this says, just a bit of a natter, no pressure, keep it away from serious stuff, and if it develops into a bit of something else, I am a great mate, I am all ears!]

“Glad you’re good, I have had a bit of a time of it lately’

[this says, I’m a great mate and I am open to you talking to me about my stuff – sort of sets an example]

 Just a few ways where you can be a great mate and really be the difference!


The Men’s Head Space Manual

I love a good book and I love to pass on the books that might help someone. I read it and thought how it ‘does what it says’ it could help a person stop and think, check out their feelings and seek support if needed.

This is what some readers have said about this book… You can  Buy here

This book is a short and sweet read with lots of helpful tips and knowledge to take in. Finished it in a couple of hours, I love the way the book is presented and laid out. And the tone of the author is very considerate and warming. Very enjoyable read. Dan Richards [ Amazon Review]

Indeed this book could help. It is written in a way which is clear, concise and very much to the point. The design makes the book look good and helps the ideas become easy to access. It is written for men who are not used to thinking about how they feel and shows some really practical ways of coping with mental health difficulties. It manages to be informative, practical and simple without being in the slightest bit patronising. Akinsete,  shows a very genuine respect and care for his readership. He clearly knows them well. Judy Ryde [Amazon Review]
