Lady Magpie

LADY MAGPIE Lady Magpie was once Miss Magpie; she wore a dress too advanced for her young years, turning the heads of all around her. Though she never understood why, she seemed always to be in trouble with the advanced ladies of her tribe. They called her a harlot, an outsider and a tramp dressedContinue reading “Lady Magpie”

A NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – NUTRITION

Just because we have a certain age in years, doesn’t necessary mean that we have the same age physically. Some people can carry 10-20 years more in their bodies than their actual age. It depends on a lot of factors; nutrition, habits, sleep, stress-levels, exercise and thought-patterns. I think this is not understood by mostContinue reading “A NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – NUTRITION”

THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL; the madness of change

When profound changes occur in life, there is a crisis which creates inner madness. Most people who come to me are in the process of change and to most of them it is as if the rug was pulled out from under their feet.

As I said before, youContinue reading “SELF DEFINITION”

SELF-HELP

There is a saying; “don’t give them fish, teach them how to fish”. Many people who  come to see me want a “quick fix”, hoping that I will wave my magic wand and all that is difficult will just vanish. It doesn’t function like this. We have become so used to the quick fixes ofContinue reading “SELF-HELP”

CHANGING THE WORLD

Just a quickie to share this nice little video with you. Being a pioneer or just believing strongly enough in something to go for it takes courage. There is no safety of already-trodden paths, answers to dilemmas or even security of existing. People around you might sneer and snicker. But if you really believe inContinue reading “CHANGING THE WORLD”

CHANGING LANES

Tonight I met a young lady that has been a client of mine. When she came to me a few years ago she had just embarked on the journey of the eternally slim = anorexia/bulimia. She was also “self-medicating” = vodka and cocaine. She had just turned 17, was the biggest liar on earth andContinue reading “CHANGING LANES”
