Spring is my favourite time of year. It brings with it an awakening and unfurling from the darkness of winter… as new shoots of life start to break the surface… both in the mind and in the world around us…

Well-Being in Nature
Join me for a walk in the woods and learn how nature can help you find more peace, inner calm and clarity of mind. The physical and mental health benefits of spending time outdoors is well documented. Being close to nature just feels good – we instinctively know this, which is why our leisure timeContinue reading “Well-Being in Nature”
Notice Nature Everyday
Since 1st January I’ve been making an effort to notice something about nature everyday… It started on an impulse after I saw a tweet from Kate Macrae that simply said: “Every day, take a moment to notice nature… a simple task proven to improve mental health.” It made me stop and think… I spend aContinue reading “Notice Nature Everyday”
New Beginnings… again… and again!!
It’s always tricky when I’ve not posted anything for several months… not knowing quite how to begin again! Do I acknowledge or make excuses for the huge four month gap? Or just dive in again as if it was only last week? …Or waffle on a bit about not knowing how to begin!!! It’s soContinue reading “New Beginnings… again… and again!!”
Reiki… as I see it!
A few months back a new client told me that she had been wanting to try reiki for years but didn’t know very much about it. She asked if there was some information on-line that she could read prior to our appointment. I didn’t quite know what to say… there’s loads of stuff out thereContinue reading “Reiki… as I see it!”

Ditching the Devices
I did a little experiment recently… and thought I would share with you what I’ve learnt. As part of my #30DaysWild Challenge (a campaign by the Wildlife Trusts which I do every year) I decided I would ditch the phone and laptop for a whole 24 hours and see if I could be gadget freeContinue reading “Ditching the Devices”
Some thoughts on moving beyond anger and frustration; Finding peace in nature and changing ourselves in order to change the world.
Lessons from the Lockdown
In my last post I approached the idea of designing a new world… of using this time of ‘lockdown’ to reflect on what is truly important to us. To rethink our priorities and our values. Now as we approach the possibility of businesses re-opening, are we eager to return to ‘normal’ or have we realisedContinue reading “Lessons from the Lockdown”
Designing a New World
It feels like an understatement to say the world has changed somewhat since my last post… For the past few weeks I’ve felt driven to document the history that we are creating right now, but yet too exhausted to put pen to paper… lacking the head-space to fully process my thoughts… it’s all too surreal!Continue reading “Designing a New World”
