I know I have been super quiet the last week or two. I don’t want to go into a whole lot of detail as it is personal (health reasons) and honestly not all that interesting, but I also don’t want you to think that I have forgotten about you.

I love hypnosis. I love engaging with you and others who share my love of hypnosis. I love enjoying sessions and watching the progress you make in each one.

But experience has taught me I also need to know when to take a step back – even from things I love – and look after myself. I can’t do what I love if I am exhausted, mentally and physically.

A little self care goes a long way, but I also have to balance that with the realities of being self employed. Namely that I don’t get sick pay, or paid holidays or any other perks. Sure I benefit in other ways but being self employed can be stressful – even if you’re doing something you love.

So if you notice I am quiet, it’s a signal that I could do with your support more than ever. Same goes for people in general – it’s the quiet ones, the ones that don’t tend to draw attention to themselves that often need support. Remember to check in on friends and colleagues and make sure they’re okay. I hope you have friends who also do the same for you.

As much as this is an explanation (of sorts) of why I have been quiet, it’s also a reminder for you to take care of yourself. Be realistic about what you need and don’t be afraid to prioritise your own wellbeing when you need to.

It’s also to reassure you that I’m not going anywhere, and I am still available for sessions – although in the short term availability may be more limited so if you want a session, let me know – preferably with as much notice as possible so I can make sure I am rested/available. I do really, truly love and enjoy live sessions and am looking forward to doing more.

Also hoping to record more once my energy levels coincide with a quieter environment.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and know that your ongoing support means more than you will ever know.
