These are strange times. For the first time in my life, it feels like external events are having an impact on what I do. I've lived through multiple government changes, wars (not that I ever took part), 9/11 and the 2008 credit crash. None of these events had a direct impact on my day to day existence. However, the coronavirus pandemic does.  Now, I find myself limited in what I can do. I can'...

It was 18 years ago that I first had the dream of becoming a best selling author. I wanted to be a prominent figure in the personal development world. In a time before blogging, online courses and YouTube, it occurred to me that the best way to achieve this aim was to write books.  Despite my enthusiasm, though, there were many obstacles in my way. First, I had no idea what I would write about...

"It always seems impossible until it's done." - Nelson Mandela I did it!!! The picture you see above is of me holding my first 'published' book.

Myself, or any hypnotist or hypnotherapist, can't make you do something against your will. In fact, hypnosis is far less exciting than it may initially seem. Entering into a state of hypnosis simply means th...
