Have you ever felt so stressed; overworked, exhausted, let down by other people, the world or yourself, that you wanted to run away or quit everything?

Do people say you’re a ‘little sensitive’ at times?

Do you look at other people and wonder how ‘luck’ graced their every move, yet you always somehow ‘lost’?

Have you always tried your best to ‘do the right thing’ especially during tough or extremely difficult circumstances yet somehow always ‘wrong’?

Do you ever wonder if you were ‘programmed’ to fail? I did. And, yes you can be, innocently or otherwise!

I found the ultimate answer to help anyone/everyone!

My personal search started over 30 years ago.  My gut instinct was that the problem was genetic and the solution was ‘simple’ but until recently I was unable to ‘prove’ my case nor ‘walk my talk’, so, true to typical ‘Cornish’ form,  I kept searching for answers not just to my own problems but for everyone I worked with or knew at the same time!

It was a tall order, but the truth was that in fact I was only looking at the common denominators. The truth is I saw THE solution, but because it is SO obvious and always apparent I could not believe so few people realised.

Then I saw the problem!

But how could I prove it?

 2002 I decided to get the pieces of paper (the qualifications) and work to my theory knowing that 2017 was ‘project phoenix’ year. I pushed on with my ‘plan’ to change my world and that of the people (especially my family and loved ones) for the better, whilst realising that there was only one way.

I took advice -‘Go for the low hanging fruit’ they said, ‘you’ll get there quicker that way’

Dropping the toxic people/ things from my life or simply standing my ground right took courage and perhaps too a little madness, but I was at the point where I would do ANYTHING to get peaceful and stress free.

What did I learn?

What I fully appreciate is that each and every one of us has a totally unique gift; a quality/ perspective that no-one else has, which has been forged by time. There are many key factors to that ‘gift’ and I ‘get’ them.

The Problem, as I see it

No-one gave us the ‘ownership manual’ or if they did, we’ve forgotten vital bits of information. For this is not something taught in schools or universities. Bizarrely, although I studied anatomy, physiology, human biology and indeed psychology I certainly did not know what I (we all) need to know about ‘getting on’ in life.

Over time I simply realised that I was, simply, confused!

What the university of life has taught me


Our bodies are very precious things! We are all guilty of ‘accidental’ or ‘innocent’ damage or even ‘abuse’ at some level, whether its repetitive movements, lack of movement resulting in physical stiffness, tension or pain. I frequently joke with my clients… if our body was a dog, and we (as individuals) are the owner then most of us would be in trouble! There would be either frequent visits to the vet or even the RSPCA…


Our minds are as equally precious and vulnerable as our bodies. When things are going wrong; or you are unhappy, ‘down’ or stressed to the eyeballs your mind will offer solutions to ‘feel better’ -some solutions are healthier than others. Some will help elevate your mind, feelings and spirit, whilst others will knock you back further.


If you are not living ‘your life purpose’ in time you WILL run out of steam. When this occurs you are vulnerable in more ways I care to mention so early in my ‘introduction’ to my Maga Therapy ‘Stress’programs.

The Bigger Picture

  • Anyone, everyone is subject to ‘stress’ whether physical or emotional. When it occurs we buckle under the strain if it is not removed.
  •  The difference between our ability to deal with the effects of stress is formed in our younger years up until around 7 years old.
  • Stress comes in many forms and can be triggered by other peoples responses and reactions to situations, the weather, politics, global issues, your job.. ANYTHING!
