Mamou Mani ltd

Working with Mamou Mani ltd staff team, lunch time fitness to help with motivation, team building and general fitness.

Office work means a long time sitting and generally staring at a screen. Staff training can include fitness classes. These classes can helps with team building as well as self protection. I use skills and techniques taken from Kung fu and kick boxing in my classes.

Fighting fit studio uses pad work for cardio fitness, punching / kicking and body weighted exercises for core strengthening and muscle toning.

Since working with Mamou Mani I have watched the team build in confidence and work well together giving each other support and guidance.

Learn to Talk

If you link yourself blindly and totally in one camp or another, you limit and bias yourself to only one perception. I’ve always been of the mind that before you can fully criticise another’s beliefs, you must first understand them. 

If you do not open yourself to alternative points of view, you can never truly perceive what you are criticising. 

There are many things that I may find personally offensive to my beliefs or that just contradict my beliefs. I do, however, try to see things from another point of view to understand where they are coming from so I can give a valid argument.

My ego, though, sometimes gets in the way of me doing this, and I can sometimes come from an aggressive or angry stance (I am human, after all). This kind of reaction is not conducive to debate or discussion and doesn’t allow for the other side to put their point of view.

This kind of thinking doesn’t mean that I don’t have taboo subjects such as racism, sexism, homophobia, discrimination, and abuse of any kind to be quite honest. This doesn’t mean that I don’t try and understand why people have their beliefs or think that way.

Some people may find some of the things I say to be offensive or upsetting to them, but it’s just an opinion after all, the use of violence or underhand tactics to silence another is cowardly and lacks integrity.

I do however try to take others opinions on board but if there is no agreement or middle ground after debate or discussion then you have to agree to disagree and walk away otherwise it is no longer a discussion but an argument. 

I’m here to try and inform and learn, not convince others how they should think or behave. I leave that up to the consequences of their actions or for their own consciousness.

Even people who commit what I would consider the most heinous of crimes, for the purpose of trying to change it you must first understand it.

As someone who has gone through many transitions in her life and made many mistakes, I try to have empathy for others even if I don’t necessarily agree with them. This allows me to critique without the need to necessarily condemn or condemn with reasoned arguments and purpose. 

Social conditioning and political differences can sometimes make this a difficult concept, but we live in a perceived democracy and have the power to deliberate, discuss, disagree and condemn without silencing the voices from the other side. 

Most minority groups may disagree with this, and I understand why, because as I’ve always said, political change doesn’t always happen through polite conversation but action, and I would never overlook this. But if I can create change through discussion and debate, I would always prefer this.

Also if you are dealing with an individual who doesn’t have power to affect your life personally, this is only an opinion and not a political or legal requirement or restriction.

I try never to hand over my power to any individual by allowing them to think they can affect my life unless I let them, institutions on the other hand are a totally different discussion as they do have power to affect my life.

Sometimes people forget this, so instead of just removing people, media and groups that conflict with their beliefs and quality of life, they choose to stay and argue or prove their point.

The question you need to ask yourself is why??

Apart from trying to enforce your point of view on another and prove your right, why would you stay around and continue to argue your point of view and get upset and angry because the other person doesn’t accept it.

The other person is probably doing the same thing so this is wasted energy, just agree to disagree and move on.

Sports Psychologist and Life Coach

“Two things define you – Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything. ”

Ask the most highly successful sports people these days, and they will tell you that they have a mind coach as well as a physical fitness coach. Mental fitness is as important, if not more so, than just physical fitness and professional skills.

As a sports psychologist and life coach, I help people reach their full potential in life and sports by looking at the negative behaviours, memories, and beliefs that may be holding you back.

Helping you to transform into the beautiful butterfly you have always meant to be means dealing with emotional traumas and life scars that might be causing negative or repetitive behaviours in your life that are holding you back from success and happiness.

Being willing to look at whatever it is holding you back or causing you to feel held back or stuck will help you to move forward and achieve success as well as a more content and emotionally fulfilled life.

Whether it be a sporting challenge or career, life or relationship goals challenging your thought processes, subconscious or conscious, is the only way to achieve the success you want.

As a sports psychologist and hypnotherapist, I am able to help clients look at behaviours and attitudes that keep them stuck.

I have spent most of my working career working with others both physically and mentally to get to a point where they love and respect themselves enough to create the life they’ve always wanted.

The biggest lesson in life is to accept your flaws so no one can use them against you, and what you may see as flaws could be used positively as part of your success.

The mind is a powerful tool, and if left unchecked, it can create a reality or perception that is flawed and damaging to you living a happy and fulfilled life.

Or becoming successful and achieving your goals.
