My name is Mark Simpson and I offer holistic therapy and life coaching to anyone suffering with mental health issues, or for those people who feel a little lost, and need to refocus and reinvent.

As a therapist, I have seen a multitude of people in the bridal industry from business owners to brides themselves, all of whom have suffered greatly in the past 18 months.

Florists who believe they have lost their creative flare, bridal wear business owners who have no customers, brides with shattered dreams… the list is endless. Confidence loss, income worry, fears created by doubt, panic attacks created by anxiety, relationship breakdowns, anxiety, stress and overthinking the “what ifs” are all thoughts and feelings I have come across in my clients recently. In reality, we can only deal with the here and now, full of hope for our future.

Let’s just take a minute to think, now.

Ask yourself – What is stopping you climbing Mount Everest tomorrow?

Let’s use this analogy, but think of your very own Mount Everest. It might be opening your business back up, regaining customers, having a wedding this year, getting your confidence back, clearing your debts and so on. It could be that you have many Everests to conquer.

So, what is actually stopping you from climbing that Everest? NOTHING IS STOPPING YOU! No one, no thing, no anxiety and no stress, NOTHING is stopping you.

When asking the questions above, you may have come up with excuses such as, “I can’t afford to climb Mount Everest, I’m not fit enough, I don’t have time, I can’t do it”…. all of which are limiting thoughts and we are here to become limitless, not limited. YOU CAN CONQUER YOUR EVEREST.

All roads to achievement lead through the land of failure; failure is simply a price we pay to achieve success.

Most people are always running towards this fantasy land that they think will solve problems and will fill them up with joy; they tell themselves “once I achieve this or that, I’ll be happy”. But I believe that happiness isn’t a place you get to; it is an inner state you create. Anyone can be happy, it’s available to everyone and is available right now.

Stop trying to analyse every event as good, or bad, and just experience it.

‘Learn to work harder on yourself than on your work’.

You can, you will, and you want to conquer your Everest, nothing is stopping you.
