Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day…

Do those three words fill you with joy or a sense of sadness?

The answer to that question, really has nothing to do with whether or not you have someone to love you on this one day of the year. I challenge that thought with the idea that we all are on a journey to love ourselves and when we are on that path, as nice as the love of someone else in our lives is, self love is infinitely more fulfilling.

We have been taught to feel like we are loved as long as we have someone to love us. The work is in realizing that we are that someone to ourself. With that knowledge we are never alone. Self love, in and of itself, affirms that we are good enough, exactly as we are.

There are different types of love but the one we seem to struggle with the most is love of self. Somewhere we were taught that putting ourself and our needs first was selfish, when in actuality it is what our soul is crying out for. When we honour ourselves with self care we become who we were meant to be, and then and only then can we give that gift to others.

You have surely heard the analogy to put your mask on first during the safety talk on an airplane, and only then put it on the person beside you. We hear this all the time but how many of us actually do it?

There you are on the plane with your loved one sitting next to you and the emergency light comes on. The next thing you know, oxygen masks are falling from the ceiling, the attendant instructs you to first place the mask on yourself so that in turn you are able to secure your loved ones.  If it was a real emergency (as so often happens in life) and not just a test, there is a reason we are instructed to put our own mask on first. When you do put the mask on yourself, not only are you in a better position to help your loved one but that air tube may be long enough to turn around and help others.

So on this, Valentine’s day, and everyday, ask yourself…what is it I need?  Make a commitment to you to do at least one loving thing for yourself everyday. It may be as simple as some time out. A walk; maybe a bubble bath, buy yourself some chocolates or flowers, or take the time to read that book you’ve been longing to. It doesn’t matter what it is, the answer is inside of you and only you can know it.

To love oneself is the beginning of a life long romance. ~ Oscar Wilde

Ditch the diet – Forever!

Drop a dress size in 4 weeks!


I’m not here to tell you what to eat, how much to eat or when to eat it to lose weight.

If you are anything like me…you’ve heard and done it all

What I am here to share with you is a new way of thinking about food.
Food is simply the fuel we put in our body to run this beautiful machine efficiently. That’s it.

It’s not our best friend, it’s not our comfort, it’s not our enemy.

Life has become all about distraction. The electronic age has left us unable to focus on anyone thing for very long…emails and texts ping for our attention, phones are tied to our hips wherever we go and we are “on” 24/7. Is it any wonder we find it difficult to focus on eating healthy and taking care of ourselves?

Hypnosis allows us to focus easily and effortlessly on making positive permanent changes in our life.

By following the Virtual Gastric Band program, which consists of 4 one hour sessions spaced a week apart, we can see immediate results and change our relationship with food.

So you can continue, trying every new diet out there…expecting a different result this time or you can do something completely different and you can be down a dress size in just four short weeks

What size will you be wearing if you don’t call?
