Annual Leave

I’m now on leave for a week. Not going away anywhere, but I have plenty planned.

I had to book this week off last year, as I did for all my annual leave. One of the problems of working in a call centre is the unavailability of annual leave when you want it. When it shows on the system we have to book it immediately, otherwise we end up having to book the odd day here and there, rather than a few weeks together. It’s a constant problem.

We’re not allowed to book holiday at xmas as it’s too busy – unless you’re someone who has family overseas, then you can take all your holidays and have unpaid leave added on. Enough said about that. It’s usually very busy at xmas so they want as many people at work as possible. We’re allowed one day for xmas shopping.

The calendar normally appears towards October, then everybody is trying to book their leave for the following year. There’s no point in buying holidays until the annual leave is booked, because it’s not guaranteed we’re going to get the dates we want. It can cause a lot of stress for people, especially if they need particular dates.

Leave has to be used up before the end of September, but every year there are many people who have a few days left and are not able to book them. There are constant complaints about this, and I don’t think it’s going to change for some time.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
