Amanda Gore
For as long as I can remember I have been talking! A lifelong friend of mine used to call me motor mouth when I was in my teens! Little did he know it was prophetic! LOL I studied physiotherapy and psychology after school and practiced for a few years, then taught at University before... Read more

The most wonderful moment of my life was the closest I have ever been to motherhood! Many years ago now, when my adored niece and nephew were living in Sydney, I was fortunate enough to babysit them.    Read more

Some peoples Mojo is so far gone that they’ve forgotten what it is all about, while others have just lost their spark. There are extremes of this condition of ‘my mojo has gone’, but I believe no matter how far away it is the steps are always the same to get it back.  Read more

If you're experiencing a decrease in libido, you are not alone. For most people, sex drive is like a roller coaster - one minute it's up, the next, it's down. Read more

Who needs a day in the year to tell your soul mate you love them? Is it a great reminder? And a special chance to do something nice? Or is Valentines Day just some big marketing ploy to get you to spend truck loads on flowers, chocolates and champagne!! Whatever your thoughts and regardless of February the 14th as a date - it is a reminder about a divine truth and that is LOVE!  Read more

The Joy Project 

Do you remember that programme on TV in which married couples would be interviewed and asked a series of questions about their partner? Then the partner would return and give their real answers? I think it was called 'accelerated divorce'!  So many had no idea what their partner really had, wanted or thought.

Not only was it a funny programme but it could also be used at home - whether one to one or at dinner parties. One to one, maybe each person could think of a couple of questions for each year of the relationship. Think of two magic moments from each year and ask a question like 'what happened the time we stayed in the hotel in the city that made us laugh until we cried?' Or 'what was the first restaurant we ever went to?'  Or if it's a new relationship, this can be a great way of finding out more about your partner and how they think.    Read more

Self Esteem for Children

The Joy Project 

A while ago I was in Darwin about to present at a public seminar when a woman asked me if I could include any tips on building children’s self esteem.

She was the special teacher of ten children who had such poor self esteem that it interfered with their schooling.  She had already made great progress with them and was a very loving person – that alone would have made her extremely effective with these children. Read more
