I am adapting some of my courses to run as shorter courses. The reason I am doing this is because I would like to make it accessible to more people. I will still be running private and small group courses which are the full course. The shorter courses are mostly hypnosis based with some antenatal education in class and the rest of it done at home on your computer. You will have a log in to my site where you can watch videos, read articles and download recordings. If this shorter course is something you are interested in please get in touch. I can only accommodate 4 couples in each group and I am running these from The Natural Pregnancy Partnership in Long Ashton on Tuesday evenings and Butcombe Village Hall on Monday evenings from October.
I just heard someone saying that if you make an NG sound (like a hum) it can help you to relieve Tinnitus. It has peaked my interest today so here is a bit of collected information.
There are some specific Hypnotherapy Downloads for Tinnitus - I don't have a specific recording but I do have a general relaxation recording try it and see if it helps!
If any of these help I would love to know
There are links to my email and social media below.
I hope that you are enjoying some seasonal warmth and topping up your levels of Vitamin D.
This is my first News Letter – and it may be my one and only J
April was The ‘Women on Fire’ Conference in Brighton with lots of interesting speakers over 2 days and extra day training in Hypopressive techniques. This was a very interesting conference with trainers from USA, Spain & Australia as well as our own fabulous UK trainers – teaching the latest techniques and research from the exercise, physio and nutritional worlds.
I am poking up my head in the far right corner!
My Hypopressive training with Master Trainer Kaisa Tuominen
May was a month of exams (acupuncture), visiting the Chelsea Flower Show for the first time, Holidaying on the West Coast of Scotland for a week in a campervan (and having exceptionally warm weather).
Now it’s back to reality and I’m on a mission – and gearing up for some serious work time.
I am still offering a few places to anyone who would like to be a case study for acupuncture – so if you would like to try 4 sessions of acupuncture free of charge – get in touch.
I am off to Brighton this month to add to my abdominal/sacral massage skills by adding Mizan Pre and postnatal massage
Saturday 7th July @ 11am is Bristol Fertility Support Group – if you are struggling with fertility issues come along and talk to others who are walking a similar path.
I am also updating some of Pilates training with courses on Scoliosis and Back Pain with APPI – and hopefully will be introducing some weighted ball workouts soon.
Abdominal/womb massage is as popular as ever - it’s a lovely massage which focuses on part of the body that is often ignored in massage – I also treat scar tissue.

Have you started to notice a decline in your ability to remember people's names?
(This just happened yesterday to a friend who could not remember my name - LOL - I had to tell her in the end).
Do you worry that you are developing early onset dementia?
Do you find it increasingly difficult to concentrate?
Are you a peri/menopausal woman?
*Don't panic 'Brain Fog' is a common symptom of menopause*
How can I reduce these symptoms?
I have been looking for a safer alternative to put under my armpits for years now. I really had given up ever finding one that would work for me. So my expectations for a rather expensive tube of deodorant which I was ordering from another country were rather low. (Having said that - the Dutch are super innovative and super friendly - love The Netherlands! )
Showered and applied pea sized amount to each arm pit and then to put it to the test done some exercise - weight training, Shabashi and Hypopressives. Still working at this point! This deodorant stood up really well especially against others that I have tried.
Day two: I did reapply after my shower even though for some people it might have been OK. There is information on the packaging that explains that it can take a couple of days to detox from your old deodorant. Having exercised again I have to say that this deodorant is standing up really well.
I think after two days of good work I have made my mind up - it has far outstripped my expectations.
*Nuud have a Face Book page with reviews - it doesn't work for everyone and there have been some comments about the ingredients. I think that I will use my tube and watch for new developments. I am really hoping that this will be a better alternative to other deodorants.
One in six couples in the UK are struggling with fertility Issues. It seems to be a more common occurence in recent years with many people knowing someone, maybe a friend or member of their family, who has unexplained infertility or is navigating the world of assisted conception.
For many people going through fertility issues it can be a long and unforgiving road. They often feel isolated from their peers, find the financial burden of assisted conception stressful and feel as though their body has let them down.
I offer a natural holistic approach to support you through your fertility journey - helping you to feel more positive, teaching you techniques to help you manage stress. I am trained in a selection of specialised alternative Fertility Therapies which will help you to relax deeply, release any unhelpful emotions and move forward.

Bump by Kate Evans
I was really lucky to be recommended this book by my midwife friend. Bump is very entertaining and is chocked full of great information about preconception, pregnancy and birth. I am looking forward to reading Kate's other book on Breastfeeding in the near future.
Have you read It?
Let me know what you liked about it!
