‘Skeletons In Our Closet’

"We all have Skeletons In Our Closet" You know - those guilty little secrets (we believe) to be so awful that we find it difficult to or shameful to talk about with anyone else. These can range from drunken one-night stands to betraying a best friend, to as much as finding out that someone in your family’s history was a criminal! However, ‘skeletons in the closet’ don’t just have to do with only dark pasts or family secrets. They can also be about those embarrassing moments you've had that you simply feel too ashamed and guilty to...

Healing The Emotional Trauma of Childhood Sexual Abuse

“Before I started the Emmote Programme I was living in pure ‘survival mode’ and contemplating suicide so when a friend recommended that I try Emmote I felt I had nothing to lose. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and an abusive marriage, I felt I could not go on any longer. Now I am able to make choices, life is calmer, easier and peaceful and I am not afraid of anything. I am free of the terrible thoughts and feelings that kept me stuck in my past and have opened the business that I always wanted and dreamed of and am happier than...

‘Are We A Mind Controlling A Body Or A Body Controlling A Mind?’

The subconscious mind, as Freud so eloquently stated is simply: “An emotionless database of stored programmes whose function is strictly concerned with reading environmental signals and engaging in hard-wired behavioural programmes, no questions asked, no judgments made”. There are several parts of the brain used in saving and storing emotion and information, these are; The Frontal Lobe (FL) is connected to the Neo-Cortex (NC); The Neo-Cortex is connected to the Limbic System (LS); The Limbic System which contains the Amygdala.

"Love, Love Me Do, You Know I Love You"

"Love, Love Me Do, You Know I Love You"

The ‘Big Day’ is just weeks away and you’re panicking. You’re ‘imagining the worst will happen’, perhaps getting ‘cold feet’ and wondering if this ‘getting married’ business is worth all the trouble and expense. Before hiring a ‘Wedding Planner’ to co-ordinate the event, perhaps we should all think about hiring ‘A Relationship Councillor” before getting married? And perhaps it might be wise to reflect on why so many people feel so nervous about it. Perhaps it could be that we just realised that we just don’t know...

I was terrified of spiders!!

Hi Annie Thought you might be interested to know that last night (after doing just one session with you) I watched the movie “Lord of the Rings; The Return of the King” and I watched it by myself knowing that there was a section of the movie with a gigantic spider (last time I saw this movie I couldn’t watch this bit!). I was a complete arachnophobic. I was so pleased to be able to watch it all the way through, and whilst I can’t say I enjoyed it, it had no more effect on me than the violent scenes with orcs and other nasties!! So...

How Do We Become So Broken and Angry?

How Do We Become So Broken and Angry?

The longer we 'believe' something negative about ourselves or others, the stronger and more powerful those feelings become. Let's say as a young child you were bullied a couple of times and you felt hurt and miserable. Your feelings might be; scared, tense, and bewildered because you cannot understand what happened to provoke the attack. If the same bully or group of bullies continue to bully you, you will start to feel dejected, frightened and unacceptable. If the bullying continues, just the thought of going to school terrifies you. You...

Unfelt Feelings Make Us Ill

Unfelt Feelings Make Us Ill

Is Emotional Pain Killing Us? Did you know when you tell your child to ‘behave yourself’, ‘don’t make a fuss’, ‘control yourself’, ‘don’t embarrass me’, ‘big boys don’t cry’ etc., they learn to suppress their tears, to conceal their anger, to appear calm and unaffected by the circumstances around them. They learn to tighten the muscles around their eyes and lips, hold their breath, and squeeze their stomach, muscles, and tissues to hold in their feelings.   They reduce their hurt or fear by clenching their teeth,...

In The Beginning Was The Word and the Word Was WHY?

                Your toddler hits four and it seems the only word ‘Little Miss or Master Inquisitor’ knows is WHY? “WHY do birds eat worms?” “WHY have cats got whiskers?” “WHY do flowers die?” “WHY does the sun go out at night?” “WHY are there holes in my cheese?” “WHY are peas and broccoli green?” “WHY is Daddy going away?” “WHY can’t I wear my wellies to bed?”  If you have (had) children you’ll remember this nightmare word for ever. It drives us nuts! After...
