MARTHA’S quick tip for dealing with stress
“When we are stressed, our self-care activities are usually the first to drop from our schedule. You need to ask yourself in these moments what you have stopped doing that usually restores you. This could be exercise, seeing friends, meditation or eating well. Prioritise these and remember that you can’t pour from an empty cup.”
Outside the therapy room
You can find Martha soaking up the sunshine – “I swear, I’m solar powered”. She has a renewed love for the library so you’ll often find her at the spiffy new Green Square. Martha both practices and teaches yoga and mindful movement – “It keeps my soul happy – as does a good boogie!”

AWAKEN THE GIANT WITHIN – TONY ROBBINS
Sometimes you need a bit of Brené Brown, other times you need a bit of Tony Robbins. I’m enjoying reading this classic self-improvement book of his from the 90’s. It packs a lot of information about why we do what we do, and how to transform your life. The cover is a classic too.
