Here’s a question: Are you really ready for change in your life? The Foundation of all change must come with compassion, self compassion, a compassionate enquiry and a whole heap of love.  To learn, and change, we must first, feel safe. We need to get into our safety mode, feel good and then we can empower ourselves and choose to change.  The safer we feel the more relaxed we are the more we can learn. When in hypnosis you feel warm, nurtured, safe, you're in a perfect state to learn, to change.  Once in this perfect state for transformation we can heal the pain from the past, change your perception and powerfully support permanent change? This week I'm delighted to be chatting with the Champion Of Change! Jo Davis. Specialising in Eliminating Root Causes of Negative Emotions, Stress & Anxiety, Trauma's,  By Using the Holistically driven, blended therapies, of Coaching/mentoring, NLP, Timeline Therapy and Hypnosis, How do people learn how to move forward with the tools to make Positive & lasting Change Today! We all have the resources/power to make change but sometimes we need to recognise that we need a little guidance.  A wisdom filled show tune in a 8 pm on orSupport the show (

This week on the #wednesdaywellbeing show I'm chatting with Dani Jackson about how to take care of your body better and boost your immune system.Your immune system is your body’s natural defense system. 🥊🥊It’s an intricate network of cells, tissues, and organs that band together to defend your body against invaders.🦠🦠 Those invaders can include bacteria, viruses, parasites, even fungus, all with the potential to make us sick 🤒🤮🤢. And if one slips by the barrier, the immune system produces white blood cells, and other chemicals and proteins that attack and destroy these foreign substances. The immune system can recognise millions of different antigens. And it can produce what it needs to eradicate nearly all of them. When it’s working properly, this elaborate defense system can keep health problems at bay. Sometimes the immune system makes a mistake and identifies a substance as being harmful when it’s not for example pollen and hayfever. The immune system revs up to fight these “invaders,” you have an allergic reaction. Not eating healthily, being sedentary, not getting enough sleep, and being under chronic stress can all contribute to a weak immune system. When your immune system is depleted, bacteria, viruses, or toxins can overwhelm the body. The result? You get sick. This week I am so excited to  be chatting with Dani Jackson.😄💗💖She is a Holistic Nutritionalist and Wellness Coach, a Gut Health Expert a Yoga teacher, Pilates teacher, Motivational Speaker and published author of Beauty and The Gut.And her new book 🥁🥁🥁 to beat coronavirus and other viruses naturally.. which is out now.......On amazon.. you are suffering from conditions like IBS, SIBO, Candida, leaky gut, hormonal problems, gut based issues, skin problems like acne, eczema etc. autoimmune issues, weight problems or just want to boost your immune system naturally Dani has got a multitude of solutions and I'm ready with lots of questions..www.awakenedpodcasts.comSupport the show (
This week on the #wednesdaywellbeing show Im talking transformation and healing from addiction. The Action on Addiction charity says it saw an 86% rise in the number of people seeking help this January compared with last year. The families of those with substance abuse issues have spoken of the immense pressure and danger this lockdown has put on their lives. With support groups limited to 15 people, many charities are unable to hold sessions safely in person. Some supportive groups, are still operating for people with substance use disorders. Many have transitioned to online like The Adfam charity that has been solely relying on online and telephone support. Practitioners like myself know that using technology for our services inevitably leaves many people out. Many without access to broadband are being left behind, abd the disconnect of online communication makes our roles as pillars of support increasingly difficult. Thus week I'm  chatting with CiCi Reagan who brings her wonderful story of healing  transformation and hope. Cici is a recovering addict, domestic abuse survivor, and published author. She now works with fellow survivors of addiction, abuse, and trauma to unearth their inner strength and heal through the power of writing. Her followers and members of her community refer to her as ‘inspiring,’ but her main goal is to simply share her story so that others know they aren’t alone. This weeks show leaves you full of hope and you can listen to all my show  live at 8 pm on or catch up on Support the show (

"Self-belief. That´s a big one, especially for those of us who have been through childhood trauma, as well as many of us who haven´t.How many of you have been told that you´re a great mum, worker, co-worker or student and yet it doesn´t seem enough at the time?Yes, others might recognise your skills, talents and capabilities, but does the most important person that matters in your life which is you, recognise it? Not always.Most of the time we don´t because receiving compliments can feel uncomfortable, perhaps because you´re unused to them.Listening to and believing those compliments can really boost your confidence.  Confidence hugely matters because it helps us to be prepared for whatever life might throw at us.For some not succeeding (a FAIL) at a task is a First Attempt in Learning. For others a failure hits us hard and just the fear of failure can very often hold us back.This week on  the #wednesdaywellbeing show I've got an amazing confidence building guest. Charmaine Barber is The confidence coach, she's an artist and writer too and she will really help you to master and grow your confidence. Tune in at 8pm on Or www.awakenedpodcasts.comSupport the show (
This week on the #wednesdaywellbeing show we discuss how to survive if you've a loved one struggling with addiction. Alcohol, drugs, harmful substances are insidious and very present in many areas of our lives, communities, schools, and work place's as well as our social lives. For some it's just for fun, others use in an attempt to cope with difficult emotions.  Because of the way the mind, body and brain responds, people can quickly become reliant, addictited and engage in harmful, negative behaviours.  But what about the friends and family members? During lockdown 39% of people surveyed who were in recovery have relapsed. That is  39% are now negatively impacting their friends, family, and colleagues yet again. 26% of family members and 28% of friends surveyed have reported a relapse of their loved ones over the lockdown period. When friends, colleagues or family members lives start spinning out of control. When their caos starts to hugely impact those around them. Who's there to support them? It's suggested that for every addict there are 4 people impacted but in reality it's more like 12. This week we take a deep dive into the reality of the impact of addiction on loved one's with Linda Easto and discuss her coaching programme and training courses specially set up to support people being affected by the negative behaviour of others struggling with addiction. , address =, Contact number - 07506258153.   Support the show (

This week on the #wednesdaywellbeing  show I'm delighted to be chatting with Mark Gregory who brings charisma, charm (and choons!) to the show. Mark is a charismatic, young, male celebrant and entertainer providing hand-written ceremonies for all aspects of life. Marks ultimate goal is to help you commemorate the most important moments in your life the way you want to – by ensuring that the ceremony is tailored specifically to you, and delivered with charm, wit, and aplomb – and perhaps a dash of music! Let Mark... Mark Your Occasion! Mark was actually given the idea of becoming a celebrant after his mum sadly passed away in September 2019. He was determined to play a large role in the organisation and presentation of his mums ceremony, because she was an incredibly special person loved by many in his small village, so he wanted to make sure she got the send-off she deserved. He wrote a eulogy, which, as strange as it sounds, got rave reviews. A few days later, the funeral director came to his door to tie up all the loose ends, and he told him that he'd make a good celebrant. That day, the seed was planted. Since then, Mark has been focusing his time on helping that seed to grow and blossom, and now, well, here we are. Facinsting chat live on and at 8 pm on WednesdayPhone: 07928 829773Web: Email: @markyouroccasionSupport the show (
This week on the #wednesdaywellbeing  show I'm chatting with wife, mother, hypnotherapist and psychotherapist. Jade Gordon. Jade specialises in working with parents, because she knows from her own experience that without good support things can be tough. You’d never have expecting things to turn out that way they have if you had known Jade 10 years ago. Then she worked as a geophysicist in the oil and gas industry and loved her job. To say that pregnancy changed her is a massive understatement, it transformed her into a mother and a wife, but it also opened up her eyes to #hypnobirthing, #hypnotherapy and having the freedom to follow a passion. Jade held Hypnobirthing classes in Aberdeen when she had a newborn and a toddler and she loved bringing her logical, science based mind to hypnobirthing, everything she teaches in her classes is based on logic and evidence. However, she felt that there was little support for the period after birth, she saw so many of her clients struggling to adjust over the first 5-10 years just the way she had. And so Hypnoparenting was born! An amazing hypnosis based programme for parents, helping them take back control, it reduces overwhelm and helps parents find more joy in their lives. sonamumwithjade the show (
