Spamalot – Derby Theatre

On Wednesday night I had the opportunity to see “Spamalot” at Derby Theatre, and what a Knight (sic) I had.

Inspired by Monty Python’s film “ Monty Python and The Holy Grail” we are treated to an evening of puns, physical comedy, gags and dialogue of the absurd which had everyone laughing out loud. Have you ever wondered about the coconut carrying abilities of the European, or African, sparrow? I had not until the subject was discussed in hilarious detail.

King Arthur sashays his way through the quest with his faithful patsy Patsy doing the donkey ( horse shoe effect) work. His plans to breach castles using a Trojan Rabbit succeed, then fail, when he forgets to put anyone in the rabbit. An awkward knight has to be dismembered before he will yield to Arthur and his faithful Knight Lancelot has a decision to make when the damsel in distress he attempts to rescue turns out to be a man.

The songs were unusually strong even though I was not familiar with most of them. The big exception of course was “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” so good we were treated to it twice. Sarah Harlington, who sang beautifully, was wonderful as the Lady of the Lake, the perfect love interest for Bob Harms’ insouciant, phlegmatic King Arthur.

The second half highlight was a song and dance routine of Knights and soldiers in 1970’s style silver hot pants which brought the house down. Oh, and they find the Holy Grail in a most unexpected place!

At the end, the almost full house rose to salute a fine company deliver a very funny show with energy, heart- and a smile. It continues at Derby Theatre, as part of a nationwide tour, until Saturday 21st April.

Using introspective hypnosis, uncover the mysteries that may lie behind your physical and mental issues. Uncover the unique essence within each of us that goes deeper than our personalities. 

Releasing old patterns and thought forms brings you back into alignment. Awaken your soul, encourage your awareness and protect your boundaries in particular situations. 

I work one to one or in groups and offer sessions online via zoom and Whatsapp. 

Understanding the past, healing the trauma in a safe environment, releasing pain, it is all part of the journey.

Releasing Attachments and Shadows 
Many people feel that there is something holding them back- but they are not sure what it is. Repetitive behaviours, irrational fears and phobias, emotional paralysis, and unexplained illnesses can all be manifestations of attachments and shadows – events and encounters from the past which continue to haunt us. 

My regressions can target and uncover these attachments and shadows and  help you to understand them, enabling you  to let them go, thereby healing past traumas. 

Are you ready for your Journey? 


There is no way of knowing what you will experience during regression therapy.

People’s experiences can be very different. Some people may see glimpses of several past lives, whilst others may delve into one life in more detail, unearthing repressed memories that no longer serve them.

You may have been described by friends as an old soul or feel you have lived before. Some people can visit a place for the first time, yet instantly feel that it is familiar. Others speak of meeting someone for the first time yet feel as if they have known them all their lives.

A sound, smell, dream, or reaction to a situation can trigger memories of a past life experience. The smell of a perfume that your mother wore.

Some clients talk of souls that have chosen to reincarnate together such as partners, siblings, or friends to carry out tasks. An example would be a daughter who acts like the mother of the family or a strong connection with a relative who may have been your brother in a past life.

Some people may try past life regression out of curiosity, to see who they were in the past.

Others are in search of a path for personal growth and healing. Both are equally valid reasons for embarking on this therapy.

If you are feeling stuck in certain ways of thinking, feelings and behaviours, hypnotherapy can help enormously. It assists you in reframing negative thoughts and behaviours and encourages you to understand the reasons for this. It can help tip the feeling of loss upside down and allow you to view it in a positive way as you move to a higher understanding of situations. For example, instead of feeling like a relationship was a failure, hypnotherapy can help you see how the relationship helped you learn, understand, grow, and become more compassionate.

You hold the key to release yourself from past trauma, dreams and attachments from past lives locked in your memory. You will see things from a different perspective and realise you are more than what you see .
Opening the doors to past life records and working with them helps to release the chains of the past.  

As a client, you are fully awake and aware of everything going on around you. When I ask you a question, you have control of your mouth and body and express through words, what you are sensing (feeling, seeing hearing, knowing), what you are experiencing in your memory or what feels like your “imagination”.


To traverse through these memories, we discuss the issues that you would like to address at the beginning of the session.During my hypnosis sessions, there may be times when loved ones, lost souls, extra-terrestrials, or other beings have a message for my clients. You may just be curious but for those looking deeper for answers – there is soul work to do.
