Adventure to Health

As only children, we often put others' needs before our own - yes really, we do - and we can burn out.

In a 6 month programme tailor made to match your circumstances and the individual that you are, we will discuss primary and secondary foods - lifestyle choices such as home, career, relationships, creativity as well as diet and exercise.

By making small, steady changes, you will boost your energy and discover increased vitality.

If you ask someone who grew up as an only child if they have often talked about the experience, they’ll most probably say no, and anyway it wasn’t a problem, so it never occurred to them to talk about it!

Problem or no problem, there's plenty to say.

I hope you enjoy trawling these pages for things that resonnate with you. If you would like to get in touch with me to work on your life experiences through the medium of Skype, please email.
