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.
