Back on it!

Like a car bonnet! I’m so sorry I had to cancel classes and one to one’s last week; I had a really nasty GI track bug (no more details, you know what that means). Over my 35 year teaching career I believe that I have only ever canceled a night’s classes a total of three…

Scorchiooooo, top tips and very important!

Wow, I can’t remember the last time, in my adult life, we had this much unbroken sunshine (I was a young school girl when we had the much talked about great heat wave of ’76). It brings both blessings and troubles which as an adult, I can now see. As a child it meant playing…

‘The Cost of Ignorance’ PLEASE READ… A BIT OF A RANT

I remember seeing this great sign on the wall at the college I lectured at for 13 years, it really resonated with me! “If you think education is expensive, consider the cost of ignorance!” I aim to feed forward to you what I learn so that you can make choices and decisions based upon well-researched…

Good Morning, have you heard the expression, ‘fake it till you make it’? In life we often do this e.g. not being in the best mood or frame of mind, but getting up, putting on a smile and showing up! The actual act of doing so can ‘turn that frown up side down’, behaving in…

From another view point…

‘The world is as we see it!’ Our previous experiences and understandings colour how we see events, other people and the world around us, this is why we can hold a completely opinion from another person of an event that we have both witnessed and a third, fourth etc. person would hold yet more differing…

Gooooood Morrning DYBO gangggg!

I hope you are refreshed and restored following your weekend? It’s very easy for all of us (especially us self-employed, small business owners but also working parents, carers and so on) to forget, or not allow ourselves, to take time to recover, reboot and prepare for the week ahead. It’s a slippery slope towards exhaustion,…

I have been training with Helen, twice a week, for 9 years, which I think tells you all you need to know. In addition to personal training, I have worked through the NLP process with Helen and experienced her ability with hypnotherapy. Whatever we do, Helen is always aware of the big picture and adjusts the programme accordingly, taking a holistic view of all my needs, whether or not I am aware of them! I would unreservedly recommend Helen to anyone, regardless of age, level of fitness or experience of exercise. If life coaching or NLP are required, she is highly-qualified, supportive and encouraging, a perfect guide through what are very beneficial but not always easy processes. Helen is discreet, completely trustworthy and a consummate professional.
