Does the weather make you mad?

0

Outdoor Events in Yorkshire In the last week I’ve been in the woods on many occasion. Mostly I’ve been doing team away days and day retreats, but I also meet some of my clients in the woods for ecotherapy coaching sessions. May is generally a month where the weather can really go to polar opposites! […]

Body and mind. Two sides of the same coin. Positive Thinking There’s lots of talk out there at the moment about the power of positive thinking.

Why nature?!

I must admit I’m a big nature fan. I realise this will not come as a shock to any of you who know me, especially since I actually call myself an “Ecotherapist” and am often found walking barefoot in the Yorkshire hills, toasting marshmallows and building dens! I’m also a big advocate of Winter and […]

The Burn-Out Epidemic – and what you can do about it.

1

This is something I talk about A LOT. I talk about it a lot because it’s a subject really close to my heart. I’ve burnt out more than once myself so not only is my professional life dedicated to helping people prevent this from happening, my fascination with this subject is based on my own […]

14 ways to deal with overwhelm

Overwhelm is that horrible feeling when you are so stressed you are numb. You’re forgetful, you can’t concentrate, you don’t feel connected to anyone or yourself. You snap. You cry. But you feel like you can’t do anything about it either. Sometimes you know why you’re overwhelmed, sometimes you don’t. Sometimes it is just everything […]
