Experienced Accredited Coaching & Breathwork still operating despite COVID

EXPERIENCED DIRECTION is what peeps want now in COACHING for these difficult times. I came out queer in 1967. After years of active addictions, I had my last drink, drug and puff of nicotine on October 25 1982 and remain 38 years clean & sober in 2020.

I’ve lived through Thatcher, AIDS losses, homelessness, survived bankruptcy in 1984, and started my practice in 1991 after a 3 year Loving Relationship Training ( LRT ) training in Somatic Breathwork and Relationship Coaching and have led Codependency & Addiction Seminars on all 5 continents. 

As I had COVID in March 2020, I’m highly unlikely to pass it on, plus 3 negative tests spread through summer. We can discuss various safe options. Wear masks, one wear mask, always 2 metres apart etc. It’s an adult decision for you and me to make. 

I do not support One hour ONLINE Breathwork, as physical support is vital, but 121 Breathwork is available with me F2F, in London Euston / Kings Cross area under current Government COVID guidelines.

All Groupwork is lockdown suspended.

At 73 I’m still working and in demand for all ages, genders and sexualities but especially those over 45 stuck like toffee.

 This no filter pic was my last social lunch before November Lockdown 2020 and can’t wait to get back to a full social life. In the late 70’s Rebirthing Breathwork was often referred to as technique for YOUTHING.

I appear to have passed the test.

ZOOM/SKYPE ONLINE COACHING available.

National restrictions from 5 November

Applies to: England (see guidance for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland)

COVID-19 case numbers are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK and in other countries. We must act now to control the spread of the virus. The single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:

  1. Stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  2. Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
  3. Close certain businesses and venues.

UK Government Guidelines : Due to rising mental health issues, people in drug and alcohol recovery, people caring for those with long-term or terminal illnesses, or who are vulnerable, people facing issues relating to their sexuality or gender, those who have suffered bereavement, and vulnerable young people, ARE EXEMPT from restrictions under specific purpose.

November Covid Lockdown Tips.

Covid Lockdown bounces into England once again November 5th for a minimum of a month – so what can be improved around our mental health, compared to the 4 month Lockdown from March, what daily actions can help us along?

Here are some actions I put into place last time that seemed to work to improve clarity and motivation. I feel a bit like Beverley in ‘Abigail’s Party’ giving lipstick advice to Ange but here goes . . . 

Always make your bed by 11am at the latest, limiting visual mess. Mess is the cocaine of lockdown. It breeds unbalanced chaotic thinking. Clean house even if no one is visiting. You deserve it.

Try to avoid wearing yesterdays clothes from the floor. It’s slovenly and the last thing Beverley would do. Standards kept, a daily shave ( legs or otherwise ) and a decent lipstick please. Gender neutral naturally.

Wearing yesterdays clothes can keep you in a lackadaisical mood. Challenging your emotional energy on a daily basis is paramount for mental well-being. Freshen up. Change clothes colours, we know black is functional but it’s not a good lockdown look every day. Enliven your wardrobe.

Avoid the dishwasher if you have one. Washing up by hand is therapeutic, meditative and offers time to think. Think potters wheel for concentration. Think it as achievement, avoiding procrastination. A good ‘job done’ energy can be carried to your next task.

Call someone every day. This is essential for emotional balance, connection and release. You can also have a laugh which as we know is best medicine. They may need YOUR call and thank you for it. Don’t lose purpose.

Connect with someone on your social media friends list you have never met. See how they are. Deepen your social media friendships. Or message them. Contact helps avoiding lockdown isolation. Don’t forget to check in with yourself. Don’t bottle stuff up. Call someone who understands your stuff. 

In 12 Step Recovery we use the mantra H.A.L.T ( Hungry. Angry. Lonely. Tired. ) These are danger points for anxiety, unbalance and acting out unhealthy emotional outbursts that can destroy the day.

Remember to check in with yourself that you have food in, have eaten and given yourself mediative moments like breathing 20 Connected Breaths when needed to rebalance if anxiety or future negative projection beckons.

If you have trouble remembering how to do the 20 Breaths exercise CALL ME.

 

 

Autumn 2020 Update

Just as I was about to return to 121 Breathwork Sessions –

“London Covid-19 outbreak sees 12 boroughs breach key infection threshold of 100 cases per 100,000 people as London Mayor Sadiq Khan warns Tier 2 restrictions for capital are ‘inevitable’ ” screams the media on October 14th.

This has not happened yet but Tier 2 indicates :

Tier 2: High alert level :

‘Restrictions will prevent interactions between households in indoor venues.’ 

If anyone wishes to take Face 2 face Breathwork 121 sessions or start the process, contact me to arrange details, including covid measures, as they stand now or during expectant Tier 2.

I don’t offer any standard 1 hour ‘conscious connected breathwork’ sessions on ZOOM as I see it as unethical without immediate physical support, but I have already started Addiction Recovery & Relationship Coaching ( without breathwork ) Face2Face or ZOOM. Contact for details.

All Groupwork is lockdown suspended.

London Lockdown. COVID Update #breathe

As many know, I had a sudden triple heart bypass last August 2019, followed by 4 months recovery and aftercare needed, so no breathwork or coaching from me. I was recovering as expected early 2020, energy back, in fact I spent 2 weeks in Athens over Xmas & New Year to recuperate.

Then mid-March with weakened immune system from surgery, went down with potent first wave COVID, knocking me for six, unable to work, then 3 months recovery with post-viral fatigue, so it’s been quite a year! But I’m bouncing back. Safely ready for work.

3 weeks ago my 3rd COVID test came back negative for the third time and hopefully with immunity gained. Energy is back, body is more receptive and experience gained. 

Pubs are open for a pint from today but you can’t do Breathwork 121 according to Government guidelines. Once this government ludicracy passes we can get back to release LOCKDOWN tensions with #breathwork121

It’s been a difficult challenging time for all of us in LOCKDOWN wherever you live. Everything is UP. Finance, relationships, working from home, and many realising being trapped in a job they hate. Pubs in UK have been shut until today – but alcohol consumption has shot up by 45%. Go figure.

If alcohol, chems, puff, or any other escape routes you use ( packets of Jamie Dodgers? ) are causing problems an avenue of recovery can be placed. My programme of ‘purposeful using’, cutting back or partial abstention has been successful for many over the past 30 years of practice. Expect no judgement from me as I gave up booze, drugs and fags in October 1982, ( more to the point they gave ME up ) and not touched one of either since.

I REBIRTHED MY LIFE.

“After careful consideration we recommend that you cancel ALL in person one-to-one and group breathwork sessions during the outbreak of COVID-19 while social distancing recommendations remain in place in your country.”

“We recognise that there may be exceptional circumstances where a breathwork practitioner decides that is is appropriate and necessary to work in person with a client.” 

_____________________________________________________

If we wish to have a breathwork session, ( discussed together first ) masked up, 1+ metres apart or NOT, contact me to arrange.

I am already ONLINE COACHING, and 2 coaching clients, after discussions and agreement choose to visit me in person. STAY SAFE but we are adults not children making choices. London has very low transmission rate now. Hence pubs can open with distancing measures in place.

Remember : 3 weeks ago my 3rd COVID test came back negative for third time and hopefully with immunity gained.
