Healing isn’t linear: or two steps forward and one step back?

Two steps forward
When you are healing, recovering or experiencing a challenging time, the improvements or progress that you see are often far from linear. It is very common to find that one day you feel more energetic and want to push yourself and then the next can feel like a, sometimes huge, step backwards. In the pursuit of good self-care, (a topic that you may well know is very close to my heart and one I feel passionately about), it is so important to embrace this as being simply the nature of the beast.

Good days and bad
On the good days you might want to really enjoy that stretch but finding the balance of what is too much can be tricky. Human nature is such that most people are not very comfortable feeling vulnerable or unable to do things they have previously taken for granted. Because of this you may well have found yourself, on many occasions, overdoing it and pushing too hard too soon. When this happens it can easily feel like a big setback but if you can move away from the idea that the progress you make ‘should’ be linear you might find it easier to listen to your body and what feels right for you at any given moment.

Extreme Self-Care: why you need it and why self-care can be so hard


Championing the importance of good self-care is something that I have become increasingly passionate about. As a fellow human being I know, first hand, that nudging yourself a little higher up the priority list is far from easy. If you tend to take on the role of caring for others, personally or professionally, this can be particularly hard. Is this something that you find yourself struggling with, despite your best intentions, and at some times more than others?

This week, I wanted to share some personal insights about the challenges of self-care so, if you’d like to understand a bit more about why self-care can be so hard, please read on and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Guidelines for coming to appointments

With yet another change to restrictions from 27th January 2022 I have once again updated these guidelines for attending appointments at both of my practices.
I am very mindful of my responsibility to keep my clients, my fellow therapists and myself as safe as possible, both in limiting the risk of transmission and in avoiding any unnecessary need to self-isolate.
I would be grateful if you could read this information before coming to your appointment and agree to abide by the guidance set out. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

My book review of "Using Reiki" by Chyna Honey just got published!

Book review of Using Reiki
It is always exciting when something that you have written gets accepted for publication. When this happens I know that my voice, and what I have used it to share, is being spread just that little bit wider. 

In this case I was writing about my Reiki Master and Teacher, Chyna Honey's, latest book: "Using Reiki - Practical essays that bring Reiki into daily practice". This, her second book, is perfect for anyone with a Reiki Attunement who already has Reiki energy in their hands and seeks to understand more.

Chyna's first book, "Understanding Reiki: From self-care to energy medicine", is also fabulous for Reiki Attunees but is particularly helpful to those who are new to Reiki or considering learning more. 

I am passionate about getting good, clear information about Reiki out into the world and both these books do just that, fabulously. Over the years so many other things have got mixed up with the practice of Reiki. This has led to much confusion, some disappointment and has surely led many away from the path of Reiki, where, if the information had been clear, they could have reaped the many benefits that Reiki has to offer for the rest of their lives. 

Both of Chyna's books, written in a very accessible style, seek to redress this and I am very happy to add my words as fanfare to their journey into the world. 

It is also wonderful to have something to celebrate in what are still rather troubling times!
