24 September 2019:  Christina Balhui

On Tuesday 24th September Ranches Ladies is presenting a fascinating programme by Christina Balhui, a registered Hypnotherapist. Her talk is about hypnosis and hypnotherapy: what is and what is not hypnosis and hypnotherapy, misconceptions about hypnosis and the scientifically proven benefits of hypnotherapy, with a short group demonstration of her skills.

Cristina has extensive experience and advanced training in the fields of Behavior Management, Emotional Intelligence, Stress Management and Self Confidence Building, Cristina is both a US and UK certified Hypnotherapist, NLP Coach, Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner, Sleep-Talk Consultant and Yoga teacher based in Dubai for five years.

Last Week’s Speaker

Last week RL welcomed Dr Salam Al-Khayyat, an orthodontist employed by our loyal discount partner Drs Nicolas & Asp Dental Practice.  Dr Salam spoke to RL about the benefits of orthodontic treatment and teeth correction. She demonstrated that having a perfect smile boosts confidence and good looks. Her “before and after” slides were very persuasive and reinforced the need for great mouth care.

She also gave every member a goody bag from Drs Nicolas & Asp, thank you Dr Salam!

Forthcoming Social Mornings

8 October 2019: Big Circles Morning

The RL Big Circles Morning will be held in early October. All our many Circles will be showcased and you will be able to meet the Circle Leaders and sign up for any Circles you find interesting. You must be a member of Ranches Ladies to sign up for any Circles and you will be required to show your membership card.


Ranches Ladies always need generous people to give a bit of their time to keep our organisation going. The easiest way to help is to volunteer as one of our meet and greet ladies. You will be asked to help out at roughly one Tuesday Social Morning a month and your role will be to show new members around, explain about the Circles, find them a seat with a group and make sure they have coffee and someone to talk to. Please speak to Julia on ranches.ladies@gmail.com for more information.
