If You Stop Controlling Everything, The World Will NOT End

Uncategorized Jun 21, 2018

If you are a mom, you are probably a control freak.

Don’t try to deny it. I will tell people I’m easy going, but in reality, I need to be control. I like to be the one who makes all the doctor and dentist appointments, deals with tutors, organizes events around the house. I like to be the one who gets my son up and ready for school. We have a system. I get him to school on time. The house will fall apart if it’s not for me.

Last summer, I went to Nevada for 3 weeks to do my next level of NLP training. I had to give up all control. It made me insane. I was far away, not planning camps, birthday dinners or groceries.  I had to have faith that my husband could take care of things. And guess what? No-one died. Everyone ate, had birthday dinners and got to camp on time. 

They did it without me. Although I like to think it was way less organized and not as much fun.

Women feel like they need to do it all. And then we get tired. And overwhelmed. And angry....

How To Create Some Time For Yourself Even If You Feel You Don’t Have One Single Second

Uncategorized Jun 14, 2018

The women I work with have no time. Every second is jam-packed with stuff. They are working, shuttling kids around, grabbing groceries, planning meals. The last thing they will do is to take any time for themselves.

What is the first thing anyone says to you when you ask them how they are? BUSY. We are all so damn busy! Business is a great distraction. If we keep super busy, there’s a lot of things we don’t have to think about. 

We are the queens of multi-tasking, right?? You don’t just get a pedicure, you get a pedicure while you’re working on my phone, or talking to a client. You don’t just watch Netflix at night, you do it while cleaning up toys, packing lunches or writing emails.

One of the things I always task my clients with is to find time for yourself. My whole process has to do with finding out who you truly are. You. Not you the mom, you the wife, you the employee. You. That authentic part of you that might be hiding under the work,...

What To Do When You Feel Like You're Failing at Being A Mom

Uncategorized Jun 10, 2018

I don’t think I’m your typical mom. Maybe I am. Maybe I just think I’m not because of all the media telling me what a typical mom should be. 

 

I didn’t even think I wanted to be a mom. I liked my freedom, going out, spending money on myself. I remember once buying an expensive pair of jeans and thinking, “If I had kids, I couldn’t do this. And I love these jeans”. But then I met the right guy, and we had a son.

 

And I have to say, I really love being a mom. I honestly didn’t think  would. 

I didn’t think I would me “mom -like” enough to be a mom. I felt, before I even had my son, that I was a potential mom failure. 

 

Society has so many expectations on moms. Dads barely have to show up and do a load of laundry once in awhile, and they’re rocking it. Moms need to be perfect. If you don’t believe me, just join a few Mom Groups on Facebook. Holy judgement! You are pretty...

What To Expect From Your Breakthrough!

anxiety breakthrough nlp May 30, 2018

 

A question I get asked a lot is, what do you do? Like, exactly?

And because my process is completely different from therapy, counselling or life coaching, I find that people are curious. And maybe a wee bit skeptical. And that's totally ok!

So here it is- here's what goes on.

You have a problem. Maybe it's anxiety. Or depression. Trauma. Overwhelm. You can't lose weight. You hate your body. You can't stop yelling at your kids. You're stuck and don't know why. 

Maybe you feel like you've tried everything. Therapy, diets, doctors. Nothing has worked. You hear about my Breakthrough process. That it is super fast (about 15 hours), painless and that I guarantee it.

You are like, "As if," but decide to give it a go, because you have tried literally EVERYTHING else. 

1. You come into my clinic, Two Rivers Health, if you're in or around Guelph. Go on a virtual tour hereIt's a beautiful, calming space with 9 other female practitioners, in all different health...

3 Weight Loss Mistakes Even Smart Women Make

Are you always thinking about getting healthier, and want to lose weight, but just can't seem to make it happen?

Over my many years as a personal trainer, and now, as a Breakthrough Specialist, I hear ALL THE TIME about women wanting to lose weight. But here's the thing...

We are all making some major mistakes... 

1. Dieting.

Yup, that's right. Dieting.

It totally works - IN THE SHORT TERM.

Put up your hand if you want to be on a diet your whole life...

Thought so.

How about never again eating your favourite foods, and when you do, feeling guilty and like a failure?

Sound like a good time?

Or do you enjoy dieting, losing weight, then dieting again, because you gained the weight back, and then dieting again, only this time it's so much harder, and then restricting more foods because THIS DIET HAS GOT TO WORK? Right.

Did you ever think that you and your body know exactly what you need to eat, and when?

To trust yourself, instead of trusting a guy who doesn't know you who made up...

3 Ways To Conquer Mom Overwhelm!

emotions hypnosis nlp Oct 26, 2017

So, my new business is very busy, and I work alot- not only with clients, but on other facets too. Just when I’m feeling successful, I forget about Crazy Hair day at my son’s school, or realize we have no bread in the morning and have to grab him a sandwich from Tim Horton’s for lunch that day. Sometimes I forget about picture day, and I always buy him winter boots after the first snow. (Winter comes so fast!) I also really don’t want to go on field trips. Or have big birthday parties. When I help him with homework I end up yelling, and both of us cry. So what happens? All the success I feel that I have in my life goes out the window, because I develop MOM GUILT. (Also, my house is usually super messy and my son’s room is a disaster.)

Where does this MOM GUILT come from? Why do we feel that we have to be some weird image of the perfect mom? I work with many women who have this mom guilt, as well as Overwhelm. I think the guilt comes from the Overwhelm.

Eliminate Your Limiting Beliefs, Easily and Effortlessly!

coaching mindset nlp therapy Oct 18, 2017

What are some things you believe, that hold you back? We all have them. They sit in your brain, telling you things like:
Why would I even apply for that job? I’m not good enough to get it.
Ugh! I’m fat and gross.
No-one wants to hear what I have to say.
I’m a terrible mom/wife/partner/boss.
I always get sick in the Fall.
I can’t make money.
I don’t deserve nice things.

Sound familiar? I could go on and on, but I wont, because I don’t want to bum you out. These beliefs often sound ridiculous, on a rational level, but they are there, clouding things, helping you to give up, opt out and never live your best life.

Your unconscious mind is super powerful. It is where 90% of all change happens. It remembers everything, and causes you to make choices, often to protect you, but these choices often don’t serve you in the best way. Think of it as a genie- a genie who grants all your wishes, but sometimes what you think you want isn’t really what you...

Find Your Abundance With The Goddess Laetitia.

Uncategorized May 28, 2017

When I was looking for a goddess for June, I was trying to find someone who was a little less known, and suited how I was feeling about this month, or maybe how I needed to feel.

I came across Laetitia. She is the little known goddess of celebration, joy, prosperity and abundance. She gives you the ability to celebrate and be joyous, despite one's fears. She was perfect for how I was feeling, right about now!

As some of you know, I am about to embark on an exciting, but terrifying summer, filled with travel, hardly working and spending a ton of money. If there's a goddess I need to channel, it's one of prosperity and fun times!

I am going to Italy with my family for a month, returning for 3 days, then I'm off to Nevada to take my Master level Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner Certification. I'll be gone for 2 and 1/2 weeks. I've never been away from my family for that long! And the money I'll be spending! Yikes!

To be honest, I've been swinging between super, crazy...

Stay a Fit Goddess While You Travel!

Uncategorized May 16, 2017

I am doing a ton of travelling this summer, and my worry is always how to stay fit while I'm away, so when I come home my workouts aren't torture. Also, I work hard at the gym, and I hate to lose my gains! It's totally not fair how fast you lost what you work so hard for!

I know I always do tons of walking and swimming while I'm away in Europe, but I like to keep my muscles strong, especially because I am just getting over some injuries and I can't have my muscles get weak!

Here are some tips to keep your fitness level up, and still have fun while you travel!

1. Remember you are on vacation. Relax, and have fun. Don't obsess about getting your workouts in. (This is a challenge for me!)

2. Bring a set of resistance bands. They are super light and versatile.

3. Commit to doing a quick workout, maybe 3x/week. I usually try to do 30 minutes of weights and intervals a few times a week. I do them first thing in the morning, so all my galavanting doesn't get in the way. 

4. Enjoy...

Channel Your Inner Athena

Uncategorized Apr 29, 2017

Did you know that the goddess Athena popped out of Zeus’s head, fully grown and clad in armour? How cool is that? She represents wisdom and clear thinking, and level headedness in battle. She didn’t use brute force in war, but relied on her wisdom to win wars.

So what can we harness from this? I like to think of Athena as the brains of the operation- thinking logically, with that quiet power and confidence that fosters admiration and respect. I think of her as an Oprah – a powerful career woman or business owner. A mom who puts up with no crap, or someone who plays in a man’s world, and wins. A lawyer who sticks up for those who can’t defend themselves, a young girl braving herself against a bully in the schoolyard. Athena gives us our strength.

Athena can help us realize our limiting beliefs around confidence, and to realize our potential. She wouldn’t let anyone tell her what her role should be or how she should behave. She is strong and...
