Using positive language

Team GB and the Olympics - The importance of language..

This week has seen Team GB do astonishingly well in the Rio Olympics and we are currently second on the leader board. Sadly though, despite all this positivity, the achievement and excitement, 2 days ago, newscasters on the BBC televised news, announced that Greg Rutherford, Britain's gold medal-winning long jumper. had 'failed' to win gold in his event and had to 'make do with' bronze!

Controlling and working with your inner voice

Do you often find you talk to yourself, or a voice talks to you? Most of us do this, it is an essential way in which we sort out our thoughts.

Now, none of want an inner bully hanging around with us all the time, so what do we do about this.

Learning effective imagination and positive imagery

You may imagine that hypnotherapy is very difficult or takes years to learn to do. Although there are some very skilled techniques, there is a lot you can do for yourself.

Workplace stress is damaging your health

“Work related stress, depression and anxiety continue to represent a significant ill health condition in the workforce of Great Britain. Work related stress accounts for 35% of work related ill health and 43% of days lost, in 2014/15. The occupations and industries reporting the highest rates of work related stress remain consistently in the health and public sectors of the economy. The reasons cited as causes of work related stress are also consistent over time with workload, lack of managerial support and organisational change as the primary causative factors.”

Colour it Confident

This week I want to talk to you about colour. At some deep level we all know that colour is important in our lives. I bet you will feel better when you are dressed in your favourite colour. And you know that you choose the colours in your house very carefully and may even feel uncomfortable if you have to be in a room which has walls in colours which you hate.
