This promises to be a very interesting talk - Sleeping well is one of the keys to good health

Thu 28th Mar - Talk by: Richard Cawte

How to de-stress, relax and sleep well.

BIO: After years working in the financial world, publishing his own newsletter and speaking at seminars internationally about the power of the mind and how it affects every aspect of our lives, Richard Cawte followed his passion for health and retrained as a clinical hypnotherapist. With established clinics in Dorchester and   Axminster, he now specialises in helping people stop smoking, lose weight, sleep well, de-stress and relax. He also works with children and adults suffering with anxiety. 


In tonight's talk, Richard will be discussing how to get a good night's sleep - with plenty oftips and tactics for those of you who feel you are not getting your full quota! - as well as teaching us a daily practice that helps you to unwind and relax as well as increasing energy and performance levels.  With a PhD in International Business and a Ba Hons in English, Richard is the author of Playing the Great Game of Life - a simple, 12-step guide to helping you create life as you desire it to be.

Richard also writes fiction under the name Essi Tolling, exploring (amongst other things) the importance of energy lines and sacred sites and the magic of the natural world.
