Are you enough?

Apr 2, 2013 / 5:00 am
“When will I ever be enough?” is the question many of my clients have asked me. That question comes from women of all ages. What or who has made their inner core of worthiness seem to be non-existent? It isn't only women who feel this lack of being 'enough'. Men also...

Our interesting journey

Sep 26, 2012 / 5:00 am
The journey to get to where we want to be can be fraught with challenge so enormous that it may seem to be almost impossible. We sometimes really believe that we will not achieve what we hope to achieve. That thought has the power to stop us in our tracks. Everything begins in the mind and our...

Just Google it

Aug 11, 2012 / 5:00 am
Remember when we had to go to the library to get information? (And we still do use that resource – a beautiful new one at that). If you were really lucky (keeping with the ‘remember when’ theme), you had your own set of Encyclopedias purchased from a door-to-door encyclopedia...

Bench words

Jul 11, 2012 / 5:00 am
“I sat here and contemplated suicide” was scribbled in red on a bench by a bus stop. The despair in those words stopped me in my tracks. I was on my way to my office early one morning when I saw those sad words, and they pulled at my heart. It doesn't matter if they were...

Pain: our body's warning system

May 20, 2012 / 5:00 am
It is both your friend and yet not your friend. Sometimes it arrives uninvited and unexpectedly in a sneaky manner, creeping up insidiously as it starts to take over everything about you. Sometimes it happens in an accidental manner. It drains you of energy, depletes your creativity, lightens...

Dancing neurons

Apr 21, 2012 / 5:00 am
“We live in a fear-based society” has almost become a cliché. It’s no wonder. Listen carefully the next time there is some major event and hear the words the media chooses. They are frequently inflammatory words that promote fear. We have become...

Mother Nature

Jan 27, 2012 / 5:00 am
I am very fortunate and rent a little cottage on acreage in the country. The house is small and very cozy, tucked away on the side of the lot. Behind me is an apple orchard. The setting is idyllic and is enhanced by the animal and bird life I experience. It is my personal healing and...

The gift of friendship

Dec 23, 2011 / 5:00 am
True friends are one of the gifts we receive as we go through life. They listen, they care, they call or visit when no one else will and they accept us for who we are, warts and all. Friendship is a balance, sometimes one side is heavier with need than the other; but then the scales adjust and...

Bless 'em all

Nov 11, 2011 / 5:00 am
It happened almost nightly, just before dark. The whine of sirens pierced the air as a woman and her two daughters gathered up their blankets and pillows and walked quickly to the nearest air raid shelter. Air Raid Wardens would go door to door, making sure no one was left in their homes during...

The impact of you

Oct 6, 2011 / 5:00 am
When we share our loving kindness through our thoughts, behaviours and actions we are making a difference in our world and the world of others. It ripples out around the globe. The energy of our mind moves outward and attaches to someone or some situation that needs positive energy at that moment...

How To Do Self Hypnosis

Aug 29, 2011 / 5:00 am
“Can you teach me how to relax Carole?” was the question a client asked me not too long ago. Yes, as a matter of fact I can and if you’d like to give yourself the gift of relaxation, keep reading. You can help your body to slow down and totally relax. It’s...

Your Hidden Emotions

Jul 25, 2011 / 5:00 am
What unseen emotions, feelings or thoughts walk alongside you daily, impacting on your sense of self worth? Can you identify them? Did you get the message as a child that you should be seen, but not heard? Were you abused in any way? Perhaps given messages that you were not important in the...

Stress and the Amygdala Hijack

Jun 27, 2011 / 5:00 am
Don’t you just hate it when something happens in your life and you react, wishing moments later that your brain had kicked in faster? You might feel foolish or embarrassed or even annoyed with yourself. You know the feeling - open up mouth, place in foot. You are not alone. In fact,...

Accessing the subconscious mind

Jun 8, 2011 / 5:00 am
“So, are you going to make me quack like a duck?” an acquaintance said laughingly when she heard I’d graduated as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. “No” I replied, “I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist, not a stage Hypnotist”. I was trained at the Pacific...

Are you cocooning?

Apr 18, 2011 / 5:00 am
The politics of any work environment can be a challenge from time to time. Most of it is due to stress in the workplace. The higher the stress, the higher the incidence of stress related behaviours or illnesses. We work in environments where expectations and rules change at an alarming rate....

The Science of Laughter

Apr 4, 2011 / 5:00 am
The title I chose for this article makes me smile. The science of laughter? Laughter, one of the things we used to take for granted, is now the subject of scientific study. In some ways it’s quite surprising what has been discovered, but in other ways, it’s probably not surprising at...
