Running on Empty

I was out walking my furry soulmate this weekend and listening to an interesting podcast that has sparked my blog this morning. The podcast was actually about habits, but a comment was made, and it has resonated with me, because it is such a common theme in my work. The comment was somewhere along the [...]

Do you hear when you listen or do you listen when you hear?

I had a dear 82-year old lady come see me today – I had seen her last year when her husband passed away and she was grieving, but now she was depressed. Different to last year. Not surprising you might flippantly think, and also pass this blog by and say yup, Covid, isolation and so [...]

Iso Blues – but you don’t have to do this alone

Sitting and writing this blog today, the weather is glorious. The sun is shining, the sky is a beautiful blue and it’s a lovely twenty degrees (well nearly there!), it is an opportunity to take in the good, acknowledge the positive and savour it. Unfortunately, lurking underneath this is some alarming statistics that were reported [...]

Food and Emotional Regulation

So, what does it meant to emotionally self-regulate? And why do I need to know what this is? In short, emotional self-regulation is a way of managing unsettling or uncomfortable emotions or impulses. When we manage this in a positive way, we are able to engage in behaviours that are considered, mindful and not harmful [...]

Rules Shmules… It’s Enough!

Ok, so unless you have been living with your head under a rock you have all heard of neuroplasticity, right? And you know that you can change your brain, rewire your brain and create different outcomes? Well what I don’t get is how come then, all those Brainiacs and so called health or lifestyle gurus [...]

Mindfulness, Empathy and Self Compassion

Mindfulness, Empathy and Self Compassion... We hear these words all the time. They form part of our language. In the workplace they get the tick of approval, and social media throws them out wherever possible. In light of both world-wide and Australia-wide events that have occurred since late 2019 and the beginning of this year, [...]

Be who you are and say what you feel

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don’t mind. Dr. Seuss Have you ever stopped to consider how much of your choices in life, actions you have taken both today, and in the past, have been based on opinions you have heard [...]

Ignoring Isn’t Going To Help

You might have noticed that I have been quiet for a while. No blogs, no Instagram, and a couple of Facebook posts that are not always relevant to my work. And to those of you that might have noticed and wondered why (thank you), I will tell you. For months now, we have been surrounded [...]

Feelings, Emotions, What the?!

Your Emotions, they drive you, they motivate you, they direct you and inspire you. But they also bring you down, wear you down, make you want to crawl into a ball, hibernate, and not face the world. And for many of us, our eating behaviour is matched with our feelings. When we are happy, we [...]

Corona’s Roses

How funny, if I would have started this blog in February, I would have said: So much to do. My To-do list is so long. How will you get everything done? You don’t have enough time in your day. Everyone expects too much from you. So many obligations. Too many commitments. You're rushing around so [...]
