Biofeedback Therapy

Biofeedback therapy is a technique that trains people to improve their health by controlling certain bodily processes that normally happen involuntarily, such as heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and skin temperature. Patches, called electrodes, are placed on different parts of your body to measure your heart rate, blood pressure, or other function. A monitor is used to display the results. With help from a biofeedback therapist, they will describe a situation and guide you through relaxation techniques. The monitor lets you see how your heart rate and blood pressure change in response to being stressed or remaining relaxed.  Initially, you will use the monitor to see your progress, but eventually you will be able to achieve success without the use of a monitor or electrodes. Biofeedback is an effective therapy for many conditions, but it is primarily used to treat high blood pressure, tension headache, migraine headache, chronic pain, and urinary incontinence. …

EFT Tapping

EFT means "Emotional Freedom Techniques" and is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals, including dozens of clinical trials, have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.

Empowering Yourself with Your Fertility

I want to share my journey of empowering myself by virtue of accepting the fact that I am a woman and that is an incredible thing! Like many I had a rocky introduction into this world of fertility. Fear based and entirely focused on not making the mistake of getting pregnant at a young age. This message sunk in and stung as I felt the ramifications ripple through me from taking hormonal contraceptive pills. The understanding became that my fertility was something to be feared. It was best to lock it away, shove it down, control it.

On the progesterone pill or POP as it is known, my womb shut down. No menstruation, no highs or lows. It felt like the female aspect to my being flat lined. At this time, I had only been menstruating for a few years and I was at the beginning of my journey of experiencing making love. For that part of me to shut off at that time in my life was desperately disorientating. It left me feeling like I was not a woman but exter…

The Law of Attraction

Take a moment to think about something you would like to manifest in your life…

What does it feel like?

What does it look like?

Fill in as much sensual detail as you can about this manifestation. Expanding out to how it would change your life and the lives of the people close to you. Seeing this manifesting in your life, envisage the ripple effect that it will cause. Breath and close your eyes to sink into this daydream.

Welcome back. You have just manifested something you desire. All things are created first in this space. I am resistant to giving this space a name, but one could call it the thought space, the dream space, or your imagination. What brings your dream from your imagination into your reality is two things. Repetition of the thought and belief in the inevitability of it happening.

What is so interesting is that you are already an expert! You have been using this skill …

Breathing Freely

Breathing is nourishment to the body. Like food and water, we need to inhale and exhale consistently to be alive. The more I have worked with my breathing, the more I have become aware that it is deeply intertwined into the emotional body. Breathing deeply and freely is a liberating and freeing experience. However, with layered trauma and heavy emotions it can take some time to get to that space. I am still very much on my journey to breath more freely. I am excited to share the insights into breathing that have arisen from research and experiences. Over time I have found some interesting techniques to free my breath. To free myself.

When starting my yoga teacher training, I realised just how restricted my breathing was. Prior to embarking on the journey of yoga, I had experienced panic attacks were breath became this elusive thing that for a time I could no longer attain. Without having the tools to unpack this I felt I was at the mercy to this emo…
