Move On Rentals

Deposit Schemes

I am going through a dispute with tenants who recently moved out of a rented property I own. They have caused quite a bit of damage and I have retained their deposit. Although I have provided an in depth detail of the damage along with photographic evidence of before they moved in and after, they have sought advice from the CAB. The CAB has advised them to seek confirmation of how the Deposit was protected. Unfortunately, I was not aware I had to protect the Deposit and am concerned at what this may mean. Obviously going forward I will ensure the deposit from the new tenants is protected but can you advise me on my rights with this particular case as I genuinely didn't know?


Fears & Phobias

Imagine a typical day. You get out of bed, go to the bathroom, wash, dress, eat breakfast, go to work, school or spend the day leisurely. Perhaps you drive or take a bus. On your route you see a dog, some balloons in a shop; you might see a bird or an insect, think about the party you are going to or your winter sun holiday. Sounds good, doesn't it? For some people though, every one of those activities causes real fear, a panic or phobia.


Fertility Hypnosis

When I am asked what issues and conditions hypnotherapy can help to deal with, the subject that creates the most surprise is fertility. It may seem incredible that using hypnosis can help you conceive, whether you have explained or unexplained infertility - it really is true!

There are many different reasons that you, (or your partner of course!) may not be able to become pregnant. Stress has been found to be a big factor in this; stress comes from all directions - work, home, financial. Or it may be that the deep stress levels brought on by an infertility diagnosis are affecting you to the degree that infertility treatment is just not working for you... yet. Have you heard stories of couples who after years of not conceiving, go on to adopt a child - and then fall pregnant naturally? This is because they have let go of the stress and worry about their 'infertility'.


Hypnosis and Birth

Hypnobirthing is a term used in the hypnotherapy and medical professions for the use of hypnosis or hypnotherapy in childbirth. Recently there has been a lot of publicity around Hypnobirthing, with several celebrities reporting having had fantastic experiences of childbirth while using the technique. In fact, there is evidence that women were 'Hypnobirthing' at least as far back as ancient Egyptian times!

So what is a Hypnobirth? Put simply, it's a method of using hypnosis to remain calm, relaxed and in control during childbirth. You won't be asleep or in a trance, you'll be able to chat, move about, and do what your body needs to do to safely deliver your child into the world. You'll be fully aware of everything going on around you.

As medicine has developed over the centuries, childbirth has become 'medicalised', yet giving birth is natural - the female body has been designed to do just that, your body knows what to do! At this point, it should be noted that sometimes medical intervention is absolutely necessary - no Hypnotherapist would ever suggest otherwise. However, when a mother stays calm and relaxed, the need for medical intervention is greatly reduced.

Top Ten Tips for Decorating with Bright Colours

Keeley Fox, from De Lusso Interior Design, gives us her top ten tips on how to decorate your home with bright colours.

1/ Create definition by combining the bright colours with plenty of natural 'white space'.

2/ Add an accent choose one dominant colour and then add in a stand-out accent. For example, team indigo walls with neutral tones and add a zesty yellow accent.

3/ Pair with bold prints bright colours love strong pattern-look out for geometric designs and oversized florals.

4/ Brighten up for impact, use the purest hue you can- no wishy-washy pastels. One hot pink cushion is more striking than a whole room in pale pink tones.

5/ Get the right light bold colours really come alive under bright lights, so include pendant and task lights in your scheme.
