Relax And Laugh

  • Sophie 

It feels to me that nowadays, people need permission to allow themselves to literally relax and laugh.

Fancy A Walk?

  • Sophie 

At the beginning of the year, I realised that hitting 10, 000 steps a day was a tall order, particularly when I spend most of my day sitting down with clients. If I am not with clients, then I will be sitting at my desk, writing blogs, Facebook pages, updating my website or indeed reading both leisure and work related.

Life Before Devices

  • Sophie 

If I was to ask you to close your eyes and either imagine yourself before you had a tablet or smart phone, or indeed if these have always been part of your life, to imagine them not being in life, how might that feel?

Writing A New Contract

  • Sophie 

You may be thinking what has counselling and writing a contract got in common? Well, we often have ‘contracts’ with people which are unwritten contracts.

What’s Eating You Up?

  • Sophie 

As I went for my early morning walk, I came upon a mushroom, amongst many others on the same walk. I noticed how it was being eaten with varying degrees and this got me thinking about my clients – past and present and indeed future.

The Art Of Good Enough

  • Sophie 

And yes, I do really think it is an art! It takes time to practice and similar to art where art is a wide and varied spectrum of different nuances, learning to be Good Enough will carry through the different elements of your life, be it home, work and with friends to name a few.

Change Your Lemon To A Strawberry

  • Sophie 

First things first, I am not saying that everyone has a ‘lemon’ in their mouth. You may be one of those people who always has a strawberry, which I totally applaud and try hard to keep a strawberry in mine too!

Ants in Your Pants?

  • Sophie 

As I came up with that heading for this blog, I did ask myself if that is a term still in use, or maybe discarded or renewed with a more up-to-date version?
