What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution-focused brief therapy is an approach to psychotherapy based on finding and building solutions, rather than in-depth analysing of problems.

Becoming a People Manager - My Story

Thank you to all of you who’ve been reading my articles, but I thought it was time to take a step back and pose the question “Why should you care about the information I share with you? Why should you ‘listen’ to what I say? Why should you even contemplate working with me or referring me to others?” Well – the answer is simple – because I’ve been there. I know that it’s not as easy as it looks to be a great People Manager. So in this article I’m going to share my story.…

It’s not unusual…

Following the revelations of sexual harassment and assault - and allegations of rape - by Harvey Weinstein that filled the news media a few weeks ago, I recently heard Sir Tom Jones on the radio admitting that something similar was attempted against him early in his career. There have been many scandals involving sexual harassment and abuse (including child abuse) in recent years; among the most notorious sexual predators here in the UK were Jimmy Saville and Cyril Smith, not to…

Do you use hot or cold water when you wash your hands?

Well, new research suggests that cold water might be just as good as warm water!

If you have a cup on your desk at work turn away now and throw it in the bin!



Tips on office cleaning…

If you work in an office, then chances are you and/or your colleagues probably drink tea or coffee at your desk.

And with the likelihood of things getting lost or misplaced, many people tend to keep their own mug on their desk too – which is actually a terrible idea.

It could end up making you sick, and there’s a really disgusting reason for it.

Bonfires and fireworks

Autumn has arrived, the days are getting shorter and the nights longer. You may be preparing the garden for winter and arranging any rubbish for a seasonal bonfire. And, at this time of year, where there's a bonfire there could be fireworks.

Keep your distance

Bonfires and fireworks can be a good excuse to bring together family and friends to enjoy the autumn nights, but they do require a bit of caution as many people, including children, are at risk of injury.…

Broker/Customer Relationships and Predators and Sharks

I had a client who was looking to grow his Business. We discussed various options and decided that a loan over 5 years would be the way forward. 

I informed my customer that this would take time and I would keep him updated of the progress.

Motivate through Engagement

The benefits to having a motivated team are enormous. Someone who will go above and beyond might be particularly critical in a small company where you need everyone to contribute. Employees who put in extra effort for your company can make a huge difference to the success of your company. In addition, engaged employees are usually happier, healthier and more fulfilled, which means they’re likely to stay with your company longer. And while they’re working for you they’re likely to be off sick…
