With recent research studies showing rising levels of anxiety and stress impacting both physical and mental health, the  teachings of ayurveda are more current than ever because they recognise the timeless nature of what it means to be human. Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga. From Sanskrit, it translates to “the science of life”. Developed more than 3000 years ago, it offers a roadmap for living a balanced life, in harmony with our environment. It is the ancient healing [...]

On New Year’s day, 2016, I was hiking south of Grenoble, France with friends from Australia and the conversation moved to our return to Australia in the coming months. I felt a huge heaviness in my heart centre, my solar plexus were tight and a subtle wave of nausea washed over me. I was VERY attached to the French Alps - my whole being was saying I DO NOT want to go home! You see, whilst we were away, several things changed in my life. [...]

Last year, my husband; our two daughters and I embarked on a 5 month road trip that took us from the French Alps to Dubai via Italy, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, Switzerland to Paris.  We flew to the UK, Portugal and Morocco and then sailed from Barcelona through The Med to Dubai and back to The French Alps via Geneva by plane.  It was the most incredible adventure and one that we will cherish for life. Looking back at the photos, [...]

So, perhaps you’ve read all about The 21 Benefits Of Meditation and you’ve possibly even tried it once or twice, but you don't have a regular practice because nothing seems to have inspired you? When discussing meditation, I often hear comments like “Oh, I tried it once, but…” “it was so hard” or “I kept nodding off” or “It was so boring!” It’s true, meditation is not always easy, but perhaps it’s not that meditation isn't right for you, perhaps its [...]

This time last year, I was in the middle of a 5-month road trip with my family. Looking back on the photos, I’m amazed at how many miles we covered and how many memories we created. As incredibly amazing as it was however, it wasn’t without its challenges (home schooling, maintaining healthy eating, jet lag, foreign languages, being out of routine and away from supportive friends, family). My sanity saver, regardless of where we were, whether there was [...]

There is no shortage of things to keep the mind stimulated in our busy world.  The demands of earning a living, running a household and being in relationship often leave us re-thinking conversations and situations that took place; anticipating future risks and possibilities, feeling pressured by deadlines as well as the never-ending to do list.  Pressure to perform and deliver can cause stress that compromises the enjoyment of other aspects of our life. Feeling preoccupied and distracted, irritable and having a short [...]

Do you, or someone you know make a pass time of worrying, constantly?  According to dictionary.com; “to worry means to torment oneself or suffer from disturbing thoughts; to fret.” Worry is a runaway fear or assumption that something has or is going to go wrong. It is initiated when the mind identifies a threat and alerts us to its danger so we can do something about it. It’s part of the fight or flight instinct. Where the system goes awry [...]

Imagine this - You are stressed out with a mind full of to do lists and internal chatter that simply doesn’t have an off button, when a well-meaning friend asks, “have you tried meditation?”  As you feel your blood pressure rising, anticipating all the things you need to get done and the approaching deadlines, the thought of sitting still and doing nothing is the absolute opposite of what you instinctively feel that you need to do.   (more…)

“What is the difference between seeing a counsellor/therapist vs. a coach?” “Why would I get coaching rather than counselling?” “How do I know if I need coaching?” These are great questions I get asked often.  To answer them, let’s explore the role of both to better understand which one best suits your needs. Both counselling and coaching are focused on the client’s well being with the aim of facilitating personal growth and understanding in a safe, confidential environment.   Counselling or therapy aims to relieve the [...]

The Ennea-what? A strange name, but the Enneagram offers insight into the perspective of 9 core archetypes or personality types.  By understanding the qualities of each archetype, we gain insight into what motivates behaviour in different individuals, especially ourselves.  It recognises the strengths and limitations of each type and how these can be developed from an unhealthy expression to a healthy expression.  The Enneagram is an ancient system, estimated to have been in use for thousands of years and more recently [...]
