How I Lost Over 20 kilos and Regained My Self-Esteem!

How I Lost Over 20 kilos and Regained My Self-Esteem!

"Learning the 'Emotional Make-Over Technique' has been exhilarating, traumatic, enlightening and rewarding. I came to it with years of compounded negative beliefs that led to an empty life that I blindly attempted to fill with food, alcohol, drugs and destructive co-dependent relationships. I knew with a certainty that my future held nothing but more of the same. It was clear to everyone including myself that I had a very distinct pattern of...

“I Just Want To Be Happy”

“I Just Want To Be Happy”

"I am responsible for my own happiness" Happiness is a feeling, just like anxiety and fear, which comes in waves; it can’t sustain itself because it’s not humanly possible to be happy all the time.

Nobody Understands Me!

  The (perhaps) saddest part of human existence is to come to understand that ‘no-one ‘really’ understands us!  This is the cry of teenagers around the globe, the effects of which can resound throughout our lives. The only way I can explain this is that because we are all such unique individuals, so unlike any other that it would be virtually impossible for another to truly understand us.
