  • How walking can change your life
    on 8th February 2021

    The huge benefits of walking for our physical, mental and emotional health are beyond question.

    on 6th July 2020

  • Why we need more joy...and how to get it!
    on 16th March 2020

    I think we can all agree that the topic of health can get a bit, well, heavy.   Amidst all the advice on diet and exercise, we tend to overlook the role that daily doses of joy play in our health and wellbeing. That's why I'm delighted to chat to my friend and mentor Gillian Elizabeth. We talk […]

  • The healing power of hope
    on 9th March 2020

    In our crazily busy lives, most of us don’t ever pause to ask ourselves who we really are and what’s important to us. Often, we’re so caught up with trying to please everyone else that we forget completely about asking ourselves what WE want out of life. That’s why I believe that this […]
