Change, Grief and You

Change affects us all. It can be daunting. It can impact us in a similar way to grief. The Change Curve is based on a model originally developed in the 1960s by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross to explain the grieving process. Since then it has been widely utilised as a method of helping people understand their reactions…

Blog: World Mental Health Day 2022

Today is World Mental Health Day 2022. Whilst I applaud the campaign to raise awareness and the good that it does, the fact remains that we should look after our mental health as much as our physical health every day. This years theme is Making Mental Health & Well-Being for All a Global Priority. It…

Blog: Just stop

Hello I hope everyone is well. The last few weeks have been insanely busy. At work and at home life has been moving at a fast pace, with little time to think and just stop. After a few weeks of the none stop pace, I am starting to feel burnt out. Right now I am…

Wellbeing in Dubai

Looking after our own personal wellbeing is vitally important. We are unable to care for others without looking us as an individual. Some activities can be very expensive but self care does not have to cost much at all. I recently read a great article by TimeOut that was particularly helpful for me as someone…

Blog: Reboot

Reboot. It happens. You have a favourite TV show, they do a reboot. Sometimes it works well (Battlestar Galactica), and sometimes the reboot is a disaster (Terminator Genysis).

Blog: I love getting older

Today is my birthday, I have turned 39 years old. I am grateful to be getting older, each and every day. It might sound odd, that I am glad to be getting older. It means I am grateful to be alive and living my life. I certainly do not wish for the opposite: death. Getting…

Blog: Story of life

We often dwell on the past, whether it’s a significant positive event in our lives or a moment of darkness. Past events can have a significant impact on who we are and can often change the direction of the journey that we are on. Just as I think we should try to focus on the…

Blog: Life, my way.

In life we often have options and decisions to make. I have found myself thinking about what comes next in a few areas of my life. At the moment this quite few decisions to be made. Inevitable changes are coming, not necessarily bad ones but I will need to. I’ve done a lot of thinking…
