Hello and Welcome

Welcome to my website, thank you for stopping by.

These pages tell you how to access services which have been carefully designed to help you find your mojo and get your sparkle back.

Our mental health is as important as our physical health and we now know that one can have an impact on the other. But many people still find it difficult to slow down, talk about their feelings or make their wellbeing a priority. Talking with someone impartial can help.

I help people find their mojo and get their sparkle back, often after a difficult period in their lives.

I’m Delphi Ellis, a Qualified Mental Health Therapist and Wellbeing Trainer – Helping You Sparkle™.

I offer talking therapies, workshops and classes promoting positive mental health – my aim is to help you reconnect with your energy and enthusiasm, I call this ‘your mojo‘.  This includes working with people often after a difficult situation in their lives, like a bereavement or relationship breakdown.

The services I provide also enables people to positively manage their mental health, particularly if they’ve been experiencing periods of stress, anxiety and depression.  As a Mindfulness Practitioner I blend the philosophy of mindfulness in to the work I do, offering an holistic, integrated and tailored approach to helping someone find their way forward.  .

As someone who has worked with and supported many women dealing with challenging situations like breast cancer, domestic abuse and pregnancy, some of my services I offer are exclusively female.  I also help busy working women find time in their schedules for some much needed self-care, through my group Serenity, 

Some of my services are re-directed through different websites, so that they provide a dedicated experience for you in topics I specialise in, like sleep.  I also have online services and resources available to buy. Take a look here.  When you subscribe to my mailing list ‘Monday Mojo™’, you get free access to resources in the Members Area like the Sparkle Repair Kit™.  You can also get in touch here.

Services are available in 1-1 and as group sessions. Private and Corporate clients are welcome.

Mindfulness Class: Delphi, A HUGE THANK YOU. I really have learned so much and enjoyed every week.

Professional Career 

I have supported people professionally since 2002, where I started my therapeutic work in bereavement, helping those bereaved by murder and suicide.  My role then was to attend coroner’s court and support people through the inquest process. In 2004, I also established a unique website dedicated to Pregnancy Mental Health, following my own experience of depression during pregnancy.

With one of my specialist areas being sleep and dreams, my career includes an extensive TV and media profile, with regular appearances as the Dream Expert on ITV’s This Morning and presenting the Guide to Sleep on Daybreak. I have also featured in Spirit & Destiny, Pregnancy and Birth and Natural Health magazines, and featured on radio programmes including BBC 2’s weekend/bank holiday extravaganzas with Aled Jones.  You can find out more about my media appearances here.

Qualifications and Training

My qualifications and training include Therapeutic Counselling, Delivering Adult Learning, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Support for Insomnia, Mental Health First Aid and Mindfulness. I am also a Women’s Advocate, raising awareness of situations which predominantly affect Women’s Mental Health, like Domestic Abuse and Pregnancy.

With Delphi’s help, I have a new perspective on life and the strength to face new and challenging things in a positive way.” B.

A rest is as good as a change – using mindfulness for managing uncertainty

How do you feel about change?

We like to be in control, generally speaking. We like to feel prepared, to know what’s going to happen next, and – if change is coming – we want to be on the right side of it. 

In the Buddhist teachings, there is a lot of talk about change, specifically about accepting the ‘nature of impermanence’ – that nothing stays the same.  

It’s our attachment to the belief that things ‘should’ be a certain way, that causes us suffering. If (as an example) six months ago I had declared we must never speak of Brexit again in order for me to be okay, I would be a heap on the carpet right now. So we have to find another way to be okay. 

We can move towards a place of accepting what is, rather than how it should be. That doesn’t mean putting up with things we can change, but simply acknowledging that right now it’s like this.

This is where mindfulness can help. 

If you’re struggling with change right now (or lack of it), find your way into this present moment. Rather than thinking about the past or the future, and getting tangled in thoughts about how it used to be, or how you wish it was, simply notice that’s where your thoughts are taking you. Then bring your awareness back to your breath, because we don’t breathe in to the past or future. The breath is here now.

Simply observe the rise and fall of your tummy or chest, and rest into being here. Allow yourself these mindful moments, whenever you need to feel more at peace.

Monday Mojo – Feel the Connection

Today is Blue Monday, or as the Samaritans are calling it “Brew Monday”. An opportunity to chat with a friend over a good old cuppa. So, how many people does it take to make a cup of tea?

I promise this isn’t one of those “how many people does it take to change a lightbulb” jokes. If you’ve ever attended one of my mindfulness classes, you’ll know this is a question I ask the group. Together, we sit and work out how many people are involved in bringing you your morning drink.

So, let’s explore it for a moment:
There’s the people who tended the soil.
The people who picked the plants.
Those who packed and shipped them.
The ones that delivered them the other end.
Then there’s those who stacked them on the shelves, and served you at the checkout.
That’s a lot of people. A lot of people who made your morning cuppa possible. 

The reason I do this, is because when we’re feeling flat, or we’ve lost our mojo, it’s easy to feel like we’re on our own. The world can get smaller, and that takes its toll. (When we’re so busy it also means we miss opportunities to bring ourselves back to centre – little things like resting whilst having a cup of tea). 

As human beings, we need to belong. (I have a whole chapter in my new book hopefully out later this year, on this topic). It can affect our health at the deepest level. And that’s why, we need to explore what feeling part of something means for us. 

This week, set the intention to Feel The Connection. Where have you felt connected in the past; where were you, and what were you doing? What would it take to feel connected again? Then spend some time thinking about how many people make your day possible, even though you can’t see them. The person who collects trolleys. People who work at 24 hour garages. Whoever invented toilet roll, windscreen wipers, coat hangers.  See how connected you feel with the world around you, and remember you make their world possible too. Maybe mull it over whilst you sit down, rest a while and have a nice cup of tea.

Monday Mojo – Treasure Your Energy

How is your energy?

At the start of each week, and especially at the commencement of a new year, there’s a pressure to begin with a full tank of positive mojo.
We straighten our tiaras. 
We create the to do list. 
We aspire to get more done, even if it means we tap into our energy reserves. 

The thing is, we don’t have a limitless supply of energy, no matter how many Red Bulls we drink or how many kilos of kale we endure. Sometimes, we think we’ll just rest later on, but the reality is we have to conserve our energy now, in order to see the future benefit.

This is why it’s so important to play the long game – to think about what your future needs, keeping in mind what you do now. It also includes choosing your battles carefully, deciding what really deserves your time and attention. Like being aware of someone or something that tries to steal what energy you do have.  

This week, set the intention to Treasure Your Energy. Imagine your energy as something of precious value, like a treasured object or an asset that needs to last you a lifetime. Then ask yourself if you’re spending that energy in a way that protects it, nurtures it and means it will go the distance. Do you need to pace yourself, or prioritise what – or who – gets your time and attention; only share the energy you have, if you feel it’s in your very best interest.

Monday Mojo – Put It Down

How rested do you feel? It’s a genuine question, as although for some people today is their first day back at work, for many they never actually stopped.

Have you noticed how we always have something to do? The problem is, even when you’ve already got enough on your plate, you can find you’re adding more all the time. The load never seems to get any lighter. 

In ‘The Book of Awakening’ Mark Nepo tells a funny story of someone who refuses to make several trips from the car whenever he goes shopping, instead he tries to carry everything in one go. On one occasion, his friend goes to the shop and buys gallons of paint. Instead of taking one out at a time, he carries all the tins awkwardly towards the house. He just about makes it to the front door, loses his grip, slips and finds himself covered in paint.  There are times when we need to just lighten the load. 

This week, set the intention to Put It Down. Whether it’s something you’ve carried in to the New Year you meant to let go, or have found yourself taking on too much already, take a step back, rest for a while and bring yourself back to centre.  Talk to someone if it helps to spread the weight of a worry, or simply set aside time for yourself to help you focus on what really counts.

New Year Mojo – Clear the Path

How do you feel about 2019?

It’s about now the pressure really starts to mount to make new year’s resolutions, and set goals with good intentions.

To try that new diet.
To get more exercise.
To better yourself in one way or another.

The ‘New Year, New You’ crowd gets louder, and genuinely it can be exhausting.

That doesn’t mean change isn’t important – or impossible.  Just that recognising the key to achieving positive results is making space for it.
Moving at a pace that feels right for you. 
Knowing what you want, and what you don’t.

At December’s Serenity, we came together in quiet contemplation with a view to creating a vision of what the new year might bring, based on the insights 2018 had provided – I described this as ‘Defining Your Blueprint’.

Through mindfulness meditation, women held space together to reflect, and consider what they will take in to the year ahead.  They said it gave them hope, clarity and insight, whilst at the same time giving them permission to put their needs up front.  (If this sounds helpful, you can find out how to purchase that online resources pack for yourself here – subject to availability).

Even if you don’t know where you’re going just yet, allow yourself to make way in your mind for something wonderful.

This New Year, set the intention to Clear the Path.  Get ready to say goodbye to things that no longer work for you.  Throw out clothes you’ll never wear, shred paperwork you’ll never need, and  make room in your diary for the things you really want.  And, instead of making resolutions, create your ground rules – your personal boundaries for the year ahead (you might like my article on the topic here).

Setting Boundaries: Why Your Personal Ground Rules Matter and How to Make Them

If you’ve ever attended a professional training course, you’ll know the first thing the teacher usually does is set the ground rules for the day.

These almost always include respecting each other’s opinion, and switching off your mobile ‘phone.

But how often do you set ground rules in your everyday life?

Ground rules can be a set of personal boundaries which make clear:

  • what’s acceptable – and unacceptable to you
  • the things you’re prepared to tolerate from other people, and
  • the standards you set for yourself.

The problem is we often set standards higher for ourselves than we do for other people. And we often really relax the rules for those closest to us.

The benefits of setting ground rules are plenty, but most importantly they can let people know where they stand, whilst protecting your mental and physical wellbeing. If people think you have no boundaries, they may be quick to take advantage.

So, how do you set ground rules?

The first thing to decide is where your lines are drawn. What is okay – and not okay – to you? What will you accept, what is unacceptable? What matters, and what needs to change? What do you want more – or less of – in your life? How can you set a reasonable standard for yourself and others, that makes it clear what is healthy and what’s not?

It might be something practical, for example:

• you might not want family and friends to call/text after 9pm or before 8am unless it’s urgent. That way you’re assured of a night without being disturbed.

Or it might be something that can enhance your wellbeing, for example:

• you might want less negativity in your life, and instead would like to be surrounded by people who bring out the best in you.

Some other types of boundaries could be:

Take some time to think about your ground rules and whether or not they’re working for you. Then think about what boundaries you need.

The next thing is how you communicate them.

You might have already decided that cheating in a relationship is not okay, but your idea of what unfaithful looks like might be different to your partner’s. Communication of boundaries is therefore key to them working successfully, without creating conflict.

Once you know what your boundaries are, see if you can find a way to explain this to someone, calmly making your point. Practice it with a friend (or professional) until you feel you can get your point across in a healthy and positive way.

Setting your ground rules and saying no to someone can be hard. It can make us feel guilty, especially if we’ve always given in or let them have their way before. But remember you have a right to put your health first, to be heard, and a right to be safe. (If you feel unsafe in a relationship, organisations like Refuge can help).

You also have a right to say no, without explaining yourself. You can always say “thank you” then follow up with phrases like:

• “That doesn’t work for me”

• “It’s kind of you to offer, but not today”

• “I appreciate you asking. Perhaps another time?”

Ground rules are there for everyone’s benefit. If people know where they stand they’re less likely to push the boundaries. So just as you would on a training course, when you need a helpful conversation with someone, why not start by promising to respect each other’s opinions, and switching your ‘phones off whilst you talk?

Setting personal boundaries is a way of caring for yourself, so that you can be there for others when they need you. It’s not selfish to create your ground rules, it’s essential.

Seasonal Self-Care – taking care of yourself at Christmas (and beyond)

At this time of year, self-care and setting healthy boundaries with yourself, family and friends are important. Here are some ideas of how to take care of yourself this Christmas (and beyond):

• Create positive space as much as possible, keep your mental health and wellbeing in mind. Take walks in nature, or just get some fresh air standing by the back door. Do what feels manageable, without feeling overwhelmed.

• Plan things for yourself that help bring you a little sparkle. Self-Care is in the little things: planning your favourite meal. Changing your bedding. Putting fresh towels out. It all counts.

• Be gentle with the things you say to yourself.

• Make sure you don’t run out of your prescribed medication. Make any calls needed to your healthcare providers, so that you know their opening hours and treatment arrangements over the Bank Holidays

• Have a list of numbers of people you can call if you’re struggling – Samaritans are on 116 123, 24/7

• Know your ‘walk-away points’ e.g. decide how you’ll know when it’s time to leave. Think about your resilience and how healthy (or unhealthy) it is to stay in situations that feel uncomfortable. Know your early warning signs of anxiety, so you can take positive action when needed.

• Get comfortable saying ‘no’, and not explaining yourself. You can say things like “Thank you, that doesn’t work for me”.

• Practice a form of relaxation before going into crowded, busy or noisy places. Try focusing on your breathing and allowing the breath to relax your body. Notice the coolness of breath as you breathe in, and the warmness of breath as you breathe out.

• Remember, Christmas doesn’t have to be perfect. Good enough is enough.

If you know someone who is struggling, don’t wait for them to come to you. Reach out, ask them how they are. Then ask again. Drop them a text message, or give them a call to show you care. Be in your mate’s corner.

Monday Mojo – Challenge the Mirror

What’s your relationship like with your mirror?

I ask, because a lot of people don’t have a good relationship with theirs.

You might spend as little time as possible in front of it, because to look in the mirror can feel like vanity.  But it also might be because we don’t like the voice inside it; the one that seems to echo all the things we don’t like about ourselves.

When we look in the mirror, we can see things we think are wrong.  Instead of looking at our reflection and saying things like “I’m doing my best”, “I’m a good person at heart” or just “my hair looks nice today” we’ll find the flaws almost immediately.

In the video I’ve included below, Kelly is a burns survivor. From a young age she thought the mirror was telling her all the reasons she’d never have the life she wanted to live.

But the mirror was wrong. Kelly went on to live a happy and fulfilling life, once she realised the voice in the mirror wasn’t someone else’s – it was hers. When she started being kind to herself, her view of the world changed.

https://youtu.be/1ThYS2BKDSk

This week, set the intention to Challenge the Mirror. Create words or phrases to use when you see your reflection, that nourish and empower you. Take a little longer to look at the face in front of you, to see who you really are, and view your face as a map of where your heart has been. And most of all, remember to be kind to yourself with everything you say.

Monday Mojo – Know Your Weather

What weather describes you right now? 

You might be feeling like:
a ray of sunshine
bit grey and patchy
or even cloudy with a chance of meatballs.

Whatever you feel in this moment is valid, and it matters.

Have you noticed though, that British people LOVE talking about the weather?  So much so I genuinely use this (and other analogies) in my therapeutic work. When someone is finding it hard to articulate how they’re feeling, they can sometimes explain it in different terms that make sense to them. For someone who loves music, I might ask them what instrument they are today. If they’re artistic, I might encourage them to think about a colour which best describes their mood. We also know that Small Talk Saves Lives.

I’m telling you this, because these types of references can help us understand ourselves better, what’s really going on with our feelings, and enables us to communicate them better with others. (It also has a lot of potential for children).

The positive message is also that weather changes. Just because you might be feeling gloomy right now, doesn’t mean it won’t be all blue skies tomorrow.  Remember that sunshine always follows the rain, and together they make beautiful rainbows. Whatever the outlook, take of yourself. This is your permission slip to practise self-care too.

This week, set the intention to Know Your Weather.  Get in touch with how you’re feeling over the next few days, and (if it’s difficult to describe) find an analogy that works for you.  Take the temperature of your feelings: is the pressure high or low? Then plan how you will take care of yourself, until whatever is in the atmosphere changes.

Monday Mojo – Take it Slow

Have you felt like you’ve been rushing around lately?

It’s usually about now things feel a bit, well… hectic. Depending on what sort of year you’ve had, you might feel a sense of urgency to get 2018 firmly out of the way, and start the new year as quickly as possible. And do you know what? That’s okay. 

But it’s also around now that people in the coaching world start with the New Year, New You malarkey.  You probably know that I don’t buy into that anymore. And there’s a reason for that. 

You see, you’ve always been you.  Yes, there may be things you’ve learned from the past 12 months, opportunities you’ve seized and chapters you’ve turned and that’s genuinely wonderful – we’ll be exploring all of that at the Serenity ‘Retreat’ in December (deets below).  But the glorious, gentle, sparkly you has always been there waiting patiently to come out.  And you’re emerging right on time. 

This week set the intention to Take It Slow. Make the most of moments as they present themselves to experience the here and now, over the next few days. Take a deep breath where you are right now and see / hear life as it is.  Avoid pushing or rushing. Watch the world go by. And just let it all flow.
