Waterloo! Your Invitation to Retreat. show art Waterloo! Your Invitation to Retreat.

Mistress Wellbeing

I've been on many retreats over the last few decades, and each one has offered an opportunity to connect with myself, reflect and redirect my energy, as well as enjoying the influence of teachers and other students. Opening myself to retreat has been a huge learning opportunity, as well as a rest and reset, and of course, the unique retreats I offer have grown out of these experiences. I'm sharing a little of my own journey on retreat today, and also letting you in on how my first Bali retreat came in to being. It's a good story! Being bold and trusting my gut really paid off. I had faith that...

Beyond Worry show art Beyond Worry

Mistress Wellbeing

Are you an Olympic Worrier? 😳   It's a cliche, but it's very real. Anxiety can affect you and me in so many ways, with one main outcome - it makes life unbearable.   Which one is you?  The 2 am anxiety spiral. Hiding under the table at work fighting off a panic attack. Nausea on the commuter train. Hyperventilating on the phone with demanding clients. Free floating anxiety that attaches itself to the next thing as soon as the first issue is resolved And so many more.   My event is the 2am spiral, (I came first in the heats😂).  But I've learned to work with it and...

The Secret Ingredient for Change show art The Secret Ingredient for Change

Mistress Wellbeing

Why do we want change? Couldn't we just stay the same for ever? That would be simple! But it would be against nature.  It would become dull and stale and boring.  Nature is in constant flux and so are we, when we are healthy. Energy is meant to flow in and out of us, through us. And we flow, like a powerful river, responding to life as it emerges.  This is healthy self process, alive, responsive, available, spontaneous and joyful. If you could wave a magic wand, what would you like to change in your life? Join me as I explore the secret ingredient for change on the podcast...

The Surprising Truth about Making Change show art The Surprising Truth about Making Change

Mistress Wellbeing

Do you feel you're meant for better things? Or that you're just not using all your gifts? You want to play bigger but something holds you back? Today I'm exploring the two forces at work during the making of change, and how they can act like a foot on the accelerator and a foot on the brake.  The force for change, and the force for sameness. What I know is that change is a process, a verb, not a noun. It takes time. It can also be understood and supported so that you can step out into a bigger version of yourself and do those wonderful things (like starting a podcast). So how can you...

How to Change Challenge Into Growth show art How to Change Challenge Into Growth

Mistress Wellbeing

How is adversity showing up in your life? Do you need support to manage it well? Not just to get through, but to work creatively with it so that it can lead to growth and wisdom instead of shutting down.   I notice that responding to adversity can take many forms. Compartmentalising, avoiding or being overwhelmed are a few that I see a lot in my work.   This makes so much sense in the immediate face of illness, bereavement, career crisis or other challenging experiences, but they are not good long-term solutions.   I know that therapy offers a way to process and allow emotion...

From Self Criticism to Self Compassion show art From Self Criticism to Self Compassion

Mistress Wellbeing

I've had the 'flu and been sick for t he past five days, so here I am a day late with the podcast. It was so lovely to wake up this morning and feel that my sparkle is back! Yesterday I tried to convince myself that I 'HAD' to put out an episode, and pretty quickly turned from that critical, demanding, unreasonable voice towards a more self-compassionate, understanding one which said, 'Tomorrow you'll feel better, you can do it then.' I've been practising self compassion for some time now, and these are the fruits of my labour. Contrary to popular opinion, being self compassionate does not...

I'm just back from five weeks in France where I had an amazing holiday, and offered a bespoke adventure retreat to one of my clients. We walked in the hills, swam in the Mediterranean and saw unbelievable ancient monuments like the Roman Pont Du Gard and the Templar city of La Couvertoirade in the Cevennes. It's been a while since I've ventured overseas on retreat, and this is my first experience of hosting in France, a country where I lived for a year and fell in love with the language and culture. My usual retreat venue is Bali, I've been going there since I was fourteen and love the people,...

Receiving, Allowing, Softening show art Receiving, Allowing, Softening

Mistress Wellbeing

How good are you at receiving? Giving seems to be a lot more comfortable for most women, yet we need to allow things in if we are to truly thrive. Today I'm exploring a world view that goes with allowing your good to flow to you, it may be different from the world view you hold. There is an experiential exercise in allowing which will start you on your journey of expanding, breathing in and more consciously receiving. Let me know how you get on! Check out my .

Weeding out 'Shoulds Weeding out 'Shoulds"

Mistress Wellbeing

What drives our behaviour? Sometimes we live according to unconscious beliefs which we took on board very early in life. Today I'm exploring this Gestalt concept of introjection, and how it can work against us until we develop the power of awareness. When introjects become conscious we have options to choose, but when they are operating out of awareness, they can have a powerful negative effect on thinking and behaviour. Here I offer a journalling technique to support you to bring the introjects into consciousness where you can start to work with them. Check out my .

I'm just back from five weeks in France where I had an amazing holiday, and offered a bespoke adventure retreat to one of my clients.

We walked in the hills, swam in the Mediterranean and saw unbelievable ancient monuments like the Roman Pont Du Gard and the Templar city of La Couvertoirade in the Cevennes.

My usual retreat venue is Bali, I've been going there since I was fourteen and love the people, culture and environment. I'm excited to announce a Bali retreat fro September of this year and hope to meet you on retreat soon.
