Good Morning, Good Morning!

It’s great to be alive. I say that with my hand on my heart as a friend has her husbands funeral tomorrow and my heart goes out to her. It reminds me to appreciate my health and that of those I love. I am undertaking and leading a group of us who are in Phase…

All I want for Christmas!

I’ve just got off the phone after talking with a client (well actually her daughter is the client but to me they come together). Her daughter has serious health issues and they have had one hell of a difficult year. This lady is a legend and her kindness is off the scale. If I could…

Birthday Week!

As I checked the date for this week’s communication with you, my DYBO darlings, I was reminded that my birthday is imminent (yes 35 + VAT and P&P again). In all seriousness it’s thought provoking to say the least. Today (like most days) I feel really healthy and happy and nothing like some folks would…

Too Much Passion?

Do you think that we can have too much passion?  Care too much? I’m going to hold my hands up here and say that I have a lot passion for many things and at times I think (know) that some people find my passion overwhelming. I sometimes have to back off when I sense people…

10 more Mondays…

…until Christmas! I find this time of year a bit weird. Unlike the post-Christmas months, which really drag, this time of year wizzes by and before you know it we are thrust in to ‘party season’. Are you prepared to get prepared? I had a really busy weekend travelling up to Scotland to caddy for…

Basking in the glow…

Sundays ‘Independance Day’ with guest presenter Lincoln Bryden was, once again, a glorious event. So much laughter, fun and love: love of dance, movement and the opportunity to get together and celebrate simply being able to! The wonderful smiles and words of thanks make the efforts of Karen, myself and guest presenters all worthwhile. We…

As a keen club runner I had become frustrated at a number of recurring running injuries. After seeing a variety of different physios and chiropractors, with varying degrees of success but no complete solution, I was recommended to Helen. Helen took a different approach to other practitioners, looking at the whole body structure, core strength and flexibility and initially recommending a programme based around my basic posture, rather than the actual location of the pain. Following the exercises and programmes recommended by Helen I have managed to stay injury free for over 18 months, and am able to train at increasing levels of intensity. Thank you!
