Samhain

We locked down on the witching night....

Samhain.

the night when

the veil between worlds is the thinnest,

when witches ride

hard across the night,

when the dead surge to rescue the living

from their mire,

when the full moon

calls us to wilderness,

wakes our wolvish sensing to the

fleshy,

rotten,

scat,

of fabrication,

and manipulation.

You may think this locking down

is of your making,

but we who know,

are hibernating.

Waiting.

I curl my tail around me,

warmed

by others

at my back,

breathing in

moist

dark

earth

as we gather energy

and lie beneath the wasteland.

knowing where the chalice lies

and that we will rise to claim it

in the spring.

I am a stress and well-being coach who supports women to ask for what they want and look after their own needs so that they can hear their heart's call and live a more empowered and meaningful life. I draw on experience and training in bereavement, domestic abuse, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, Transactional Analysis and other therapeutic approaches to get you loving you. I have 2 sons who I love loads (and who sometimes drive me crazy). I'm a Barefoot Trained coach and I got a distinction for my post-grad cert in 2011. I have a PhD which led me to look at Emotional Intelligence in schools and I have a number of academic and professional qualifications in various types of therapy. I have practiced meditation since I went to India over 25 years ago and I'm currently training to be a yoga teacher. I have written a couple of books, I teach psychology and work with a large variety of coaching clients.
