The Art of Kind and Flowing Relationships: Review
“We are all in relationships, some successful and other not so.
When our relationships are not working, at a fundamental level, they show signs of friction, stagnation and stuckness.
Having spent thirty years in Human Resources you learn just how important relationships are at a work and on a personal level. If a relationship, that you care deeply about, isn’t working, it can make your life miserable. There is also nothing like having a bad relationship with your boss or spouse to focus the mind!
Nick’s, new book helps the reader to understand how important relationships are and most importantly how to create healthier, happier and more empowering relationships, through in Nick’s words, the lens of kindness, respect and empowerment’.
I learnt more about relationships and the energies behind successful relationships, in the few hours it took to read this wonderful book, that in thirty years of reading HR and business articles on the subject of relationships.
I would wholeheartedly recommend you purchase Nick’s book and get yourself a comfortable chair and cup of tea, as you will be immersed in it, page by page, as Nick unveils the art of kind and flowing relationships and just how important kindness is to living a great and fulfilling life.”

When I was five years old my mother became very ill, and as a result, I spent over a year in different family homes, moving every few months. In each new home, I was shown extreme kindness and care, at one of the most confusing and difficult times in my life. Even though I was very fortunate, unlike many people in this situation, I still became a very anxious child and hyper-vigilant as to how to fit it. All hidden behind a jolly exterior.
In my adult life, as well as having a happy marriage and three wonderful children, I had the privilege to spend 35 years practising and teaching Traditional Chinese Medicine. I recently calculated that over that time I conducted over 50,000 one on one consultations. The majority of which had some discussion about what was working well - or going badly - in their life and relationships. Plus, some solutions from me for them to try and improve the situation.
The content in this book is the result of a lifetime of obsessively observing how we interact or get on, over 50,000 consultations and a wonderful and deeply loving marriage and family life.

I love you but I don't like you...
One of the most moving reports about the power of taking The Vitality Test was from a father who'd just had the deepest and most meaningful conversations with his daughter.
By their own admission as a father and daughter, they loved each other but they didn't like each other or get on. They were living together and tolerating each other, until it was time for her to leave home. And then this happened...
After the father had taken The Vitality Test, he persuaded his daughter to do the same, which she did after much moaning.
What followed was a two-hour tear-filled conversation where they talked and talked. Exploring why they both saw the world so differently, and why that was ok. That changed everything.
