Alicia is available for workshops – some examples are given here, but she can also design workshops to suit your organisation’s needs.
TAKE THE WEIGHT OFF YOUR MIND:
- Do you struggle to lose weight and wonder why?
- Do you find it difficult to stop hoovering up the kids’ leftovers?
- Are you unable to lose those last 10 pounds?
We know that dieting doesn’t always work – in fact, it rarely does. Too many of us report it a struggle to keep the lost weight off and many go on to put even more weight on afterwards. Our bodies get confused in the ‘feast / famine’ period and start hanging on to excess weight, rather than getting rid of it. A period of yo-yo dieting usually follows this and research shows that fewer than 10% of the people who follow diets end up keeping the weight off.
So it’s not surprising that experts now agree that psychological techniques, such as NLP and hypnotherapy, can aid weight loss more effectively than many of the faddy diets on offer. In fact, most traditional slimming clubs and weight loss/healthy eating advocates incorporate a psychological element to their programmes. They’ve realised that without it, you’ll be missing a vital part of the jigsaw puzzle.
The key to successful weight loss is to take control of your eating habits through your mind – for what’s going on inside your mind is more important than what’s on your plate.
This one-day workshop is designed to teach you the secrets to losing weight easily and naturally, putting you on the path to your ideal size and weight. And the best part of it is…… you won’t have to stop eating any of your favourite foods!
- why you’ve struggled to lose weight in the past
- how your busy life is making you fat
- the most effective way to beat cravings
- how feeling happier about yourself will propel you to your ideal weight
AN INTRODUCTION TO MINDFULNESS:
HOW TO GET RID OF STRESS, BE MORE POSITIVE AND SUCCESSFUL
- Would you like to worry less and feel more relaxed?
- Do you long for a better night’s sleep?
- Would you like to boost your creativity and productivity?
Have you ever caught yourself saying “I just can’t think straight at the moment”? It’s easy for our minds to get overloaded – we’re a 24 hour society with mobile phones, laptops, social media demanding our attention around the clock. Factor in work commitments, kids and family, the pressure to ‘eat right and look good’, it’s no wonder that so many of us get locked into a cycle of stress.
Stressful thoughts trigger a range of responses in our bodies, from physical complaints such as skin problems, insomnia, IBS and asthma to emotional problems such as tearfulness or anger and behavioural problems such as forgetfulness.
Breaking this cycle can prove difficult for some people and feeling stressed can quickly become a habit.
We hear a lot about “Mindfulness” nowadays and it’s easy to think that it involves thinking about nothing and doing nothing. For a busy person, that’s not always an appealing proposition regardless of how burnt out we feel. We enjoy ‘doing’ rather than ‘not doing’.
In fact, learning how to direct your mind in a more useful way enables us to think more creatively, become more productive and achieve better results. By switching off the clutter and noise from your mind, you can free it up to work better for you.
This one-day workshop is designed to help you understand how your thought processes affect your physiology and learn some Mindfulness techniques. This is a useful introduction to the subject and ideal for those who have perhaps thought about signing up for a 6 or 8 week training programme, but are unsure if it’s right for them.
- how to break the habit of feeling stressed
- how your negative thinking affects your nervous system
- how to create feelings of calm alertness and inner strength
- how to create more happiness and joy in everything you do
BACK TO WORK CONFIDENCE – For Mums
- Would you like to feel more confident in difficult situations?
- Is tiredness and negative thinking holding you back?
- Do you want to give your career a much needed kick-start?
Two-thirds of all women now return to work after having children and a ‘lack of self-confidence’ is one of the biggest problems that mums say they face.
It’s hardly surprising given the massive identity shift that takes place once a woman becomes a mother – in the space of a few short months, the workplace environment gets swapped for the isolation of long days at home; friendship groups change and because babies don’t come with a handbook, feelings of self-doubt start to creep in.
Confidence can be one of the most difficult qualities to fake. We’ve all met people whose “insides” simply don’t match their “outsides” as their boastfulness, name-dropping and expensive accessories highlight rather than disguise their shortcomings.
The good news is ‘we become what we think about most of the time’. So, it’s possible to “think” yourself confident by exercising your brain in the right way, on a daily basis.
This one-day workshop incorporates the latest thinking from the fields of positive psychology, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), TFT (Thought Field Therapy) – giving you a tool-kit of simple techniques for a more confident, successful life.
