We know we desperately need more transparency and accountability in the fashion industry but how can we get there?
Fashion has it’s roots in humanity over 20,000 years ago when the first human stitched together furs for warmth and protection and realised that clothing could also serve as a way to distinguish friends from foes. In approximately 5,000BC the rise of great civilisations began, firstly the Sumerians, then the Egyptians and then the Romans. For these empires, clothing was no longer simply a protective barrier from the elements, it started to evolve into decorative items of comfort and then hierarchical symbols of status and power....Read More
It’s that time of year where you’ve been busy treating everyone else during Christmas. Now it’s time to think about yourself! You’ve spent time giving away, but what things are you still keeping hold of that would be better for you to let go of?Read More
Back in June (How is it August?!) I joined the Yes for Europe crew for their 5th European Youth Entrepreneurship Conference. It took place in beautiful Budapest, Hungary and I had such a ball I've written a few posts on the trip since I got back.
As a part of the Conference, we were able to visit a few of Hungary's most successful tech start-ups. My favourite visit was our last to the HQ of Creative Software & Digital Media agency Pulilab...Read More
Many have misconceived hypnosis to be a mysterious, magical power. Some think that a person is kept permanently in a trance and can be made to do anything they wouldn't normally do.
In fact, on a simple level; hypnosis is a natural RELAXED state. In this crazy world we live in, think how positive it would be to have a less stressed, more peaceful, healthier nation whom are relaxed!Read More

Within less than a week, the world as we know it has changed.
The outcome that we woke up to on Friday morning here in the UK has changed the course of history forever. The British public have voted to leave the European Union.
Our Prime Minister has resigned. The opposition party are calling for their leader to resign. We've lost our Triple-A credit rating. Racially motivated hate crime is on the rise. And we're only five days in. We are stepping into the unknown...Read More

Yesterday evening on my way home, I bumped into a gorgeous woman I used to play Netball with five years ago. She was excited to see me and her power hug and beaming smile took me quite by surprise (I was pretty crap at Netball!). Anyway she proceeded to tell me that my old team are now top of their league (go Kaizen!!) after five years of hard work and not giving up...Read More
- Do you have bad habits you want to break?
- Keep finding yourself in the same negative situations?
- Repeating unwanted behaviours that you can not seem to shift?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) enables you to question these behaviours so you can get into the habit of breaking bad habits!
Awareness of the relationship between our thought processes and behaviours is key to dissolving bad habits. The goal of CBT is to explore your mental routines so that you can break free from conditioned thought patterns...Read More
This is where we roll up our sleeves and get practical! You are likely to know what you need to do on a day-to-day basis to take better care of yourself. But you are unlikely to do it all. And even worse, we are all guilty of doing things that we know are bad for us. So let’s address this bad boy challenge first off with two questions...Read More
Self Belief is about believing in yourself, your plans and your abilities, regardless of what the world thinks, says or throws your way. It’s about trusting in yourself and your potential, through successes AND failures. It's not the same as confidence, which is often seen as how we show up to the outside world. Self Belief is internal and all about your relationship with You...Read More

When is the last time you took time out from your hectic life to look in the mirror and really see who stares back at you? How often do you give yourself 50 minutes to sit and speak about yourself and how you feel? Imagine you could do that in a space where there is no judgement...Read More
