Now known as the “original Laughter Coach”, Dr. Annette Goodheart, a psychologist from Santa Barbara, California, used laughter in her therapy in the 70’s.

Laughter in the Birthing Suite – Why I Laughed Through Labour

So there I was, laughing through the height of labour and dancing to Reggaeton in the shower of the birthing suite… and no, I wasn’t high on the laughing gas.

Don’t be afraid to accept help

When we give, the world wants to give back. Sometimes I can’t even believe the things that people offer me, do for me and help me with. Twice this week, including today, I’ve had tears in my eyes because I have been so awestruck and grateful about what people (that I barely know) have put…

How to react when triggered

— So deep in ego — I accepted a friend request from a guy on facebook last week. I don’t know him, so I checked out his profile, saw that he was a coach who helped other coaches and practitioners to accelerate business and added him. I sent a message to say hi and that…

Keep moving forward

The pain, the frustration, the disappointment, the anxiety, the sadness, the guilt, the fact that it is not going away, that the things you are doing “aren’t working”, that it seems like it is all so hard  and endless… Be with it. You can come to know it, understand it and learn from it, without holding…
