Integration in Motion

New Inspiration! In an effort to practice what I promote to the people I walk this journey with, I have moved my office into a martial arts Dojo. That’s right, a karate dojo in fact. The Classical Martial Arts Centre has been my own self-development ground for almost a decade and now it is my professional home as well. This …

The Trance of Trans-formation

An awesome colleague of mine recently hosted an event with the same title as this blog post. I loved the title, and while her focus was on the art of change through hypnotic trance, it gave me a different idea that I wanted to share.

I Have a Confession…

I have a confession to make. I have been cheating on Psychotherapy. I know, I know… I’ve been formally trained, in the field for 10 years and I’m damn good at it, and that’s how this fabulous indiscretion occurred.   You see, as much as I truly love the field of therapy of the mind/soul, I kept coming up against limitations. …

Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy Love Day! Happy Day! While I’ve seen the usual extremes perpetuated by social media, “Another Hallmark holiday”, vs. “The ideal way to lavish love on your partner”, vs. “I’m single so today isn’t for me”, I’m happy to say that I’ve seen way more emphasis on “Loving your Self” than ever before.

“Hey You, Get Off My Cloud!”

  Have you ever heard the saying, “Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver, one is gold”?           I always interpreted this phrase to mean that all friends are valuable and precious to us but are different in what they offer. When you make new friends, don’t discard the ones you had before because …

The Unconscious Power of the Unconscious “I”

So, I have all this awareness; I am aware that my body feels sluggish when I eat foods that I know are not good for me; I am aware of my feelings of frustration and the futility when I am yelling; I am aware that exercise feels so much better after it is done, when I make excuses not to …
