What is a Sound Bath?

Last weekend, I treated myself to my first-ever in-person sound bath.  Since then, I’ve had several people ask me, what is a sound bath?  So, I thought I’d jump on here to explain. A sound bath isn’t the type of bath that involves water (although it can have a strange effect on the water in…

Post-Therapy Reflections

It’s been almost two months since I finished going to psychotherapy, and there is still a lot to reflect on.  It has been one of the most insightful experiences I’ve been through so far. I learnt so much more about myself in those 12 sessions. In this week’s musings, I want to share some general…

A Look Back At August

I’m a bit later than usual with my ‘Look Back’ due to recent events, but I’m back with a round-up of August, which seems like a lifetime ago already! August was a bit of a strange one this year. We sadly lost one of my Aunties last month, which has left my family mourning the…

A Look Back At June

So here we are, already in the second half of 2022. I’ve been appalling at maintaining my blog this year. It always seems to be the first thing to go on the backburner when life gets busy. The irony is, that’s probably one of the reasons I ended up seeking therapy earlier this year. My…

A Look Back At May

Fresh from a few nights away in Ibiza, I’m back with a look back at May. Looking back on last month, it feels like so long ago my brain can hardly comprehend that it only came to an end less than two weeks ago.  That’s what holidays do to you. You lose yourself in this…

Lessons Learned From Psychotherapy So Far

Earlier this year, my Doctor referred me to a Psychotherapist after my anxiety skyrocketed. Whilst I knew I’d been suffering for a while, I’d never openly spoken about it. At the start of the year, it became impossible for me to manage myself, so I went to see my Doctor. I ended up on a…

My First Therapy Session

On Thursday this week, I had my first therapy session.  After finding myself in a vicious cycle of anxiety led thoughts at the beginning of the year, I found myself on a waiting list for psychotherapy.  My appointment date came through a couple of weeks ago, and although I knew the session was looming, it…

Hello Anxiety My Dear Friend

“I hope it really does help you to write it all down Bex.” read the message I received on Whatsapp from my Mum two weeks ago.  “It certainly helps a great deal.” was my response.  Whilst there was a great deal of truth in my reply, as writing has long been a source of therapy…

Mental Health Awareness Week

As many of you may be aware, it’s been Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK this week. We all have mental health, and we’re all impacted by it in different ways. I’ve had a very personal view of family and friends who’ve suffered from poor mental health since my teens. My own mental health…

Onions

This post was originally published on 5th September 2018 and updated on 2nd November 2019. Rumour has it…I’m an onion. Last year, I received some professional coaching as a parting gift from my old CEO. My sessions with the coach, Beth, were pretty epic. They often felt more like therapy sessions then coaching sessions. Either…

Whittlebury Hall

Yesterday I treated mum to a spa day at Whittlebury Hall. Whilst I have been a few times before, mum had never been, and it was nice to finally be able to treat her. We were both ready for a day of rest and relaxation, and what better way to unwind than in the beautiful grounds…
