"Your best friend is your own mind and your own warm-heartedness. They will give you your inner peace and happiness."
The Dalai Lama
I invite you to step inside your inner world where sustained peace, love, passion, purpose, fun and happiness reside. I’m a retired psychotherapist and Reiki Master and I’m learning about me, the mind and raising consciousness. I believe in helping especially those who are open to spiritual growth. Who recognise their inner world affects how they manage their outer world…
I'd love to share, connect, collaborate with you.
My complicated and oftentimes challenging mission throughout my life has been searching for meaning.
Well, I've 'remembered what I've forgotten' and I've 'awakened' to my inner world. How did I do that?
Would you believe after countless years searching 'out there' in the big wide outer world - because yes, I believed that material wealth and living around the world would give me everything I need - I realised what I was really searching for was inside of me all along. In my own Beautiful Mind.
What I learned that it in is here, inside of me, where the sustained source of peace, happiness and joy reside. So I share with you intuition, imagination and insight alongside everyday free and crystal clear thinking and feeling to reshape your inner world for outer bliss.
I've learned free flowing thoughts and mindful action. You can have this too. We all can! It's just a matter of recognising, utilising and living from our inner world where all this continually resides rather than trying to function 'out there' in a never sleeping 24/7 fast-becoming technological world. small wonder we become stressed. I know I was, with a breakdown in my immune system, depression, thyroid dysfunction, exhaustion, unable to switch off. And this year, a stroke, where for a while I lived “in-between worlds.” So you see I am walking my talk day in and day out!
Who am I?
Hah! there's a question! Well, for the purposes of this, some call me a transformation catalyst. I’ve retired from Psychotherapy, Reiki Healing and Dream Catching...I know that in the past when I used my skills in the workplace I'd often be there for counselling, recognising that what my client needed was healing, or elsewhere for healing or body work and recognising that my client wanted to open up and explore their inner world.
I’m in a different space still walking my spiritual path as I’ve done since a young child. Following what is required for the ultimate outcome where heart and mind are in harmonious oneness.
If you have a thought, question, quest or reflection, then why not talk or write? Just connect and see how it goes. Your priority always has to be you. (After all, we cannot nurture others from a dry well.)
What is important is you. Your beliefs, your thoughts, your truth, your inner world. How you see your reality and how it is shaping up for you.
If you are questioning your life in any way, those deep down questions we all have such as who am I and why am I here? And what is not working so well for me, and I want more but that doesn't sit right when others are without - you know those sort of questions, please know you are not alone. This is one of many experiences and patterns we all face in our journey. Do, reach out?
I'll deem it an honour to connect for however long our time together. Of course I will, we're on the same journey!
I live my life honestly, kindly and compassionately:
I don't subscribe to any system looking after me completely or being shoved aside by society and on a heap because I have reached a perception laid down by society, ticked a box or an age.
I will not be bullied! Nor will I follow a 'tribe' because the system demands it.
Inside my own mind I am free to choose. I am the pattern maker and breaker of my own life. And yes, I know that comes with personal responsibility.
Each decade brings change and transition. And for me this is OK, because I live on the inside of my own mind.
Of course there will be steps backwards as well as huge steps forwards in life. I believe we're given challenges so we learn how to move through them with alacrity gaining vitality, knowledge, peace and clarity and a lighter hearted attitude toward life as we go. A bit like a game of monopoly collecting 200 for passing go!
I understand that it's my life and I have a choice: it's in my interest and for my own wellbeing to learn how to re-align (balance) my inner and outer world at will. I see, now, how fear can be replaced by inner strength, clarity, peace of mind, happiness and self confidence so long as I choose not to buy into fearful thoughts.
I've dedicated over 30 years to understanding my patterns and rhythms. I can see when to go with the flow, when to retreat, when and how to release - all vital in this 24/7 full on technological world.
Fun ~ freedom ~ purpose ~ passion ~ happiness. Lets all choose to live from that answer!
I've chosen to take back my personal power and become the master of my own thoughts and feelings, beliefs and values in my own Beautiful Mind. I now live out my life through my own perspective, with free flowing thoughts and mindful action. I live in detachment, in gratitude, harmony and happiness.
Got to share - I've written countless case studies over my 30 years and 10,000 hours with clients I've noticed amazing patterns in how we heal and how powerful our mind can be once we've begun to live on the inside. So it's time to share - when I'm not meeting with you my clients, I'm writing writing writing! Love to share with you on my facebook page or join my community for monthly emails...
Books on living life passionately, relationships with money, the masks we wear, awakening and remembering what we've forgotten...
It's here, in our Beautiful Minds, where True Love, Happiness and Freedom resides.

I've lived and worked around the world, including Boston USA, Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and Monte Carlo, Europe, London and Oxford UK.
What do I do? Well, over the past 30 years I've been 'pigeonholed into boxes' as a counsellor, psychotherapist, mentor, coach and healer, Reiki Master and Shamanic Practitioner and Bach Flower Remedies Counsellor.
Over the years, and over 10,000 hours working with others, I realise I can't be pigeon holed into a box. And neither should you by the way. We are all diamonds shining with many facets!
I've observed various patterns within people. That, together with my own self development is how I've learned I'm a Transformation Catalyst. I help and support you to see how to move through change, challenges and uncertainty, enabling you to live in harmony. In alignment with your own singing heart and your own Beautiful Mind.
Everything I share and support you along your journey I've either experienced myself or witnessed countless others going through a similar process. To ease the process I've developed these four steps toward self-alignment.
FACTS and FIGURES
Ia 1996, after three years in the Caribbean and Boston USA studying Wellness Programmes in the Community, I set up a clinic in the UK, "Harmony in Health." In the early years, most of my clients came via private word-of-mouth recommendation.
Since then and right up to this day, I continue my consultancy work in the community working alongside various ageing well projects.
From 2002, my referrals increasingly came from professionals in the business community and the public sector. And for seven years, I worked for the UK NHS employee wellbeing programme, particularly retirement, transition, ageing well issues. You can also check out my NHS and business references on Linked In. https://uk.linkedin.com/in/annbruce
In 2010 I moved to Devon where I spent four years in seclusion and meditation. I was exhausted, having worked 7 days a week for many years averaging 30-40 clients a week. It is from this period of seclusion I began to write about the patterns and processes toward self-alignment. I am particularly interested in Ageing Well, Awakening and Remembering our Divinity. I write about Love, Laughter and Relationships and Transitions.
in 2016 I set up what is my fourth website THINKING HAPPY THOUGHTS.
Tanmayi is my given spiritual name meaning " harmonious oneness" A name I've taken to heart throughout my life journey.
I've nearly 30 years of expertise in exploring with clients what I call Soul Journey issues or Self-alignment questions:
The Who am I/where am I going thoughts.
How can I balance my inner world with my outer world?
In fact, where is my inner world how can I access it?
What is my/the purpose of life?
Why me, why this, why now?
Deep and meaningful questions so many of us experience at some time or another.
I've had those thoughts ever since I was three ... in fact, it's been my mission throughout my life to discover answers, living my life in harmony, without attachment in peace happiness and joy.
