It's something I now do every single day, without fail. Even if I scribble quickly in my notepad while preparing the kids breakfast.... I do it without fail, I am talking about penning my daily goals (which are the small steps that form the bigger goals of life) . I find it focuses my mind and reminds me of MY unique purpose.
My scribble could include words like calm and confident, parenting with calmness, do 10 mins of yoga each day, drink water, breathe more, focus and clarity ....I'm someone who has 100 ideas all at once so need to organise and prioritise regularly...
I find I write the same thing or very similar over and over each day and that's great. It's all reinforcing my goals, my focus and my vision. The ultimate aim is that I am telling my brain and my mindset what I want day in and day out.
So why does writing down your goals and dreams down on paper have such a profound impact... the answer lies in the chemistry of our brains. Our beautiful clever and intricate brains,...
What is hypnosis and hypnotherapy.... what actually happens during hypnosis and how it differs from meditation. Here are some of most common questions & answers around hypnosis. Contact us if you have a question
What is hypnosis & hypnotherapy?
A good definition for hypnosis is, that it is a state of mind, a state of consciousness where you move yourself into relaxed meditative, calm state and when we are in this state we can often still talk, feel, taste smell all our senses are still there - but we quieten our conscious mind. Our conscious mind is that busy, overthinking, rational part of our mind.

What are some of the most common misconceptions about hypnotherapy?
One myth is hypnotherapy is a form of brain washing or mind control. That it’s a form of magic, and you will do things or say things you don’t want to...
We teamed up with one of our favourite socially conscience fragrances Sana Jardin, to create a guided meditation story taking you on a journey to the beautiful flower fields of Morocco where the Sana Jardin flowers are harvested.
The story takes your imagination to this magical world of the Moroccan flower fields, where the flowers of the orange blossom tree and Moroccan rose bush are picked to create these luxurious perfumes.
Let your mind relax, as you sit back and follow the story, let your imagination wonder on this journey to finding inner calm and inner strength as you discover the powerful scents in the fields.
"It’s all in the mind." No truer sentence has ever been spoken. Or, as Buddha put it: “What we think, we become.”
Many a great business leader, celebrity, actor and musician who has made it big seems to swear by the power of visualisation. There’s even a quote by comedian Jim Carey attesting to the power of the mind that has gone viral on social media so many times I wasn’t even sure it was true, until I saw Carey interviewed on The Graham Norton Show, where he explained how he visualised receiving a cheque for $10,000,000 every single day for four years. As it turned out, his first acting pay cheque was exactly that – an incredible $10 million.
Tennis legend Serena Williams meanwhile claims that 70% of her game is in her mind. However, she’s not the only sportsperson to do so – in 2019 Serena was actually defeated at the US Open by 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu, who said post-match: “I’ve been...
This week it is Mental Health Awareness Week.. and this year's theme is KINDNESS –a topic that feels especially important to all of us right now. Wherever you are in the world let's spend this week being kind to ourselves and others.
Our mental health is being tested like never before with COVID-19.... so now more than ever we need to show ourselves kindness and love, as well as support others in anyway we can.
The act of being kind can trigger a release of the hormone oxytocin which in turn reduces stress, decreases blood pressure and improves the cardiovascular.
