Sunday mornings are for reading the papers? Not for me. I headed up to central London to become part of the Matt Roberts team, massaging VIPs
after their 13 mile run round the great parks in London.
Luckily the weather gods provided the perfect running conditions. Not too hot, but a gorgeous sunny day. Trees with their autumnal colours looking like they’d been brushed on by a rainbow.
Bright and early I headed up to London hoping that the security guard would have my name on the list, luckily it was.
So who did I get to meet? Well the first person I bumped into was Ben Fogle, a lovely guy who you can’t help but slightly swoon over with that sexy voice and rugged good looks, his wife is stunning as well and what a lovely couple.
I heard earlier in the day that Matt Roberts was there leading a group of kids like a pied piper.
So with my massage thumbs switched on, a steady stream on VIPs came onto the couches from 11am until we stopped around 2pm.
Celebrity runners this year included Katherine Jenkins, Jenni Falconer, Sophie Raworth, and Adam Woodyatt
(Ian from Eastenders).
I am most proud of Team Glamour from the Condé Nast Magazine group. I started working with a group from their editorial staff earlier in the year when most hadn’t even started to run. I felt like a proud Mum as they all came into the tent after completing their run. I would happily work with any of them again and they were raising money for a great cause, MIND, a charity involved in mental health problems.
It was definitely worth getting up bright and early to say I was part of this amazing experience and I would happily give up another day in the future if the opportunity arose.
What’s planned for this week? Tomorrow I’m off for my third Kung Fu 1:1 session. I absolutely love it. I started to learn 15 years ago but work got in the way. Now as I am my own boss I can give myself time off to go!
Have a great week and don’t forget to ‘Pay it Forward’ if you get the chance.
Pay it Forward
Have you ever seen the film 'Pay it Forward'? I was surprised how many people hadn't when I started to talk about it. It is basically about how one good deed deserves another but rather than returning the good deed to the same person, you suggest they do a good deed for someone else. Therefore you 'Pay it Forward'.
Little did I know until the other day that there is a 'Pay it Forward' Foundation. When I described how I'd done such a deed and tweeted about it. I was amazed and extremely honoured to get a message from Charley Johnson, the head of the pif foundation www.pifexperience.org. Let's get 'pif' rippling out across the UK. Just make one kind gesture and watch the ripple grow!
Things have been steady growing work-wise and I can't believe it's been two months since I started the company! I'm looking into setting up a training branch at the moment and I have a meeting set up to discuss international clinics. I already have two people on a waiting list even though it's still only a thought in my head at the moment.
There are lots of hypnotherapy clients booked in this week. I think they are all trying to squeeze in before my holiday!
What's planned for the rest of the week? Thursday I'm up at my Harley Street clinic. Some of the Glamour magazine team are booked in for sports massage as their weekly mileage increases in preparation for the Great Parks half marathon. Their muscles are starting to wonder what's hit them!
This is my 'Pay it Forward' moment this week. I have asked them, rather than paying me, to make a donation to MIND - the charity they are running the half marathon for. MIND can then use the money to help many individuals with mental health issues. And the ripple goes on!
Don't forget to watch out for my new advert in Sussex Living this month.

Wow what a start to my first month of running my own business. It’s been a great mixture of Hypnotherapy, Personal Training, and Sports Massage. I’ve had a steady stream of new clients throughout July that has kept me from sunbathing too much (or was that the lack of sun!).
I’m just finished working with Glamour magazine, taking them through a 7 week Matt Roberts ‘Training with You’ programme. On the final week Matt Roberts joined us in Berkeley Square for circuits and the photo shoot. I will miss going up to there on a Tuesday evening and working with such a highly motivated team. Glamour magazine are running the Great Parks Run in Oct for MIND, please sponsor them here http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=GLAMOUR&isTeam=true
Harley Street is really starting to pick up now as my profile page is up on the Harley Street Therapy Centres website here http://www.harleystreettherapycentre.co.uk/83/BeckyWells.html. I’m looking forward to meeting new clients up there this week.
I had my first international client this week and still have ambitions to take my skills abroad.
What’s planned for this week? Monday I’m off to Tulley’s Farm to attempt not to get lost in the Angry Birds maze. So if you don’t see any more blogs, send a search party.
Tuesday I have an audition for a TV programme but it’s top secret and you’ll just have to wait and see what that’s all about.
The rest of the week is filled with appointments, and maybe the odd time watching an hour or six of the Olympics!
So you’ve got your bikinis, suntan cream and suitcase. Have you booked your ‘Training with You’ programme with me to get your beach body or set up a time to have hypnotherapy to build up that confidence or lose weight with the power of your subconscious?
If not why not, give me a call, I promise I do not have a swinging pendulum or swirling eyes!!

Thinking of Building an Ark!
I am thinking of investing in a canoe to get between clients if the rain continues. What a start to summer (or glummer) as I heard it called.
Have you ever wondered what hypnotherapy can be used for? I would ask that the other way round. What can't it be used for?
Weight loss is one of the areas hypnotherapy can complement and enhance other forms of training such as personal training, pilates and yoga. It gets to the the heart of the matter and can help to change years of bad habits, replacing them with positive ones. I have recently been working with several clients who, by changing their lifestyle and eating habits, lost between 10 and 17 pounds over an eight week period.
Confidence and self esteem is another area where people seem to bloom steadily as the sessions progress. For me the reward of seeing someone grow is so motivational and inspires me a little bit more every time.
What's planned for this week? Glamour magazine team have taken the Royal Great Parks Half Marathon challenge by the horns and are taking their training shoes all round the world. They took their Asics trainers to Australia on a photo shoot. There's dedication for you!
Tuesday they are training in Berkeley Square with myself and Vicky from Matt Roberts 'Training with You'. It's going fantastically well. They've been using muscles in their bodies they didn't even know they had.
I'm off to Harley Street to see clients on Thursday. Then topping the week off with a trip to Longines Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead. I went last year for the first time and was so impressed by the events and exhibitors that I am looking forward to this year even more.
In the British tradition I am going whatever the weather. That's why 'Hunters' were invented.

What a great start to my new company! Appointments have been keeping me very busy, spreading my time between London and Sussex. Last Thursday I went up to a ‘Women in Business’ networking meeting with Jon Roberts, a speaker from Matt Roberts Personal Training. What a fantastic motivational talk.
I picked up the keys to my Harley Street consulting room last Thursday, so appointments will now be available there on a Thursday afternoon.
The training with Team Glamour from Glamour magazine is going fantastically well. They are such highly motivated people who work so well together. They are training for the Great Parks run in London in October and are raising money for MIND. You can follow their training blog on http://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk/love-sex-relationships/health-fitness/2012/team-glamour-running-blog#!image-number=1and see what training myself and Vicky from the Matt Roberts ‘Training with You’ team have been putting them through.
My Matt Roberts ‘Training With You’ ladies in Mid Sussex are also doing amazingly well with their sessions. They have been going for four weeks now and have lost almost 16 kilograms between them already (almost 30 bags of sugar)! They have lost 25cms around their waist and 12.5cms round their hips between them. Keep up the great work ladies.
So what’s planned for next week? Well lots more hypnotherapy and sports therapy clients are booked in but I have given myself the day off for my birthday on Wednesday 11th (21st birthday again for the 17th time)!
Monday at 9am I’ll be over in East Grinstead on the Meridian 107 FM Breakfast radio show I sponsor with Mark Dodson, and then off for my coffee at Mr Andre’s coffee shop. I’ve missed them whilst I’ve been so busy the last few weeks.
On Tuesday evening, why not come and watch us train the Glamour Team in Berkeley Square. Fingers crossed the rain stays
