Remember if you are not speaking it, you are storing it, and that gets heavy (Christina Isabel)

Life is busy. So much to do, so little time. So much time spent prioritising the things that we think are important and relegating the things that perhaps seem less so.

A form of hypnotherapy called RTT can help get to the root cause of issues quicker
