What's so bad about stress

Not all stress is bad for our health. In fact, some 'positive' stress is very good for us. It can be what makes life exciting --in good situations where we feel in control, it causes feelings of excitement and thrill. It can be motivating. However, when the stress is negative and...

Genuinely plastic

As I've mentioned in previous blogs, a common feature of many of the people coming to see me for hypnotherapy and coaching is the limiting belief that change is either impossible or very difficult.  It is particularly common in those with a negative view of ageing, when inability to change is...

Healing through the looking glass

I'm constantly amazed and impressed by the brain's capacity for change and healing -- especially as when I was a student, it was firmly believed that the idea of brain plasticity was a crank one!
