The third and final session of my Hypnotherapy experience

June 27, 2019
During the week in-between my second and third session with Lydia my tickling cough turned into a full-blown bug. I’d managed to keep going long enough to make it through some social and work engagements plus a friend’s birthday fuelled by booze to override the fatigue. Obviously this remedy belongs to the devil and I paid my dues after. But things were still continuing to transform and blossom in my life even whilst I nursed a fever. As I said in my previous post, the credit to which this blossoming belongs to is largely Lydia’s. Lydia, through her hypnotherapy and wise approach allowed me to realise the changes I needed to make in order to move forwards.… Continue reading...

Yoga with Sophie Clyde: Ibiza and London

November 13, 2017
Mental health problems are a growing public health concern. They are prevalent not just in the UK, but around the world. Mixed anxiety & depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain, with 7.8% of people meeting criteria for diagnosis. Encouragingly however, this year has seen a positive shift in addressing the problem with public figures such as the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry working for the Heads Together campaign, which seeks to combat the stigma surrounding mental health issues, and invite people to speak more openly about their difficulties. It’s well known that one of the best solutions and preventions to stress and anxiety is yoga and meditation – both of which I speak about frequently on my blog and IG.… Continue reading...
