Have you ever written down a goal and put the bit of paper aside but every now and then you saw it and wondered if it would ever come true?

In 1991 I was a very sad newly-single mother of two but I was determined to be successful on my own and made a list of my goals .I made a self-hypnosis audio for myself to listen to my goals as I went to sleep at night.

One of those goals was to be invited to speak at the Million Dollar Round Table annual conference –the biggest in the world for Finance Consultants

As the years passed I read my list of goals every New Year and noted that some had come true. I was presenting on radio and television regularly. I had developed audio-programs and written books that were selling consistently. As a speaker I had presented on topics ranging from parenting to conflict resolution and of course goal-setting. I had written the manual for a software program called Goal Maker.


Now here’s where I begin to get tingles down my spine. Seventeen years later I went to my laptop on a cold dark winter’s morning and opened an email which said “You have been invited to speak at the Million Dollar round Table in Indianapolis, USA in June 2009”.

The speaker-seeker had found me on the web!

It was a grand success with me presenting to a full house twice!
However…it was somewhat “over the top” for financial consultants – so I was asked to submit another topic.

Note the learnings ABOUT TRUST I highlighted in red above?

Well I am very proud to announce that I am speaking for the MDRT again this year at Orlando on 7th June – the topic is – DODGING DODGY PEOPLE: SAVE YOUR TIME, MONEY AND HEARTACHE

Women’s Health & Fitness Summit

Dr Janet Hall will be speaking at the Women’s Health & Fitness Summit in Melbourne in October 2017. Her topic is “Understanding and Facilitating The Elusive Orgasm”.

Find the Time to Make Love

One of Australia’s foremost experts in the field of family, relationships and sexual therapy – prominent psychologist Dr Janet Hall – says too many Australians are getting their priorities wrong in 2016, and failing to find the time to make love … let alone do it well.


Dr Hall, who presented at SEXPO MELBOURNE (Nov 24 – 27) says modern everyday stresses are getting in the way of healthy loving.  Too many Aussies are shutting down, not expressing their true feelings, are forgetting to listen, and are simply not making the all-important time for an intimate connection with the person they love.

“All of us need to know that finding the time for love making in a relationship can be a challenge, which is why many Australians should be making it a priority,” notes Dr Hall.

“Ultimately it’s about having a real and soulful connection with your partner that needs to be pursued, and not the first casualty of emails, work or any other 24/7 living pressures.”


OUR 24/7 LIFESTYLE IS A RELATIONSHIP KILLER – We are online, on call and in demand – more often than not for others.  Emails, texts, phone calls and work requests can arrive at any time of the day. We don’t stop at 5pm to have our own life any more.

UNDER PRESSURE – Then there are the ‘normal’ stresses involving money, raising children and a seemingly hectic and relentless pace of needing to get things done.

CHANGING YOUR LIFE (AND RELATIONSHIP) FOR THE BETTER – Dr Hall presented ‘Great Sex In A Loving Relationship’ at Sexpo’s S.H.A.R.E Seminars (Sexual Health and Relationship Education).  Dr Hall is an energetic and humourous presenter who delivers practical and well-researched information, drawing from her 35-years of experience as a professional therapist.

WORLD FIRST – MOTHER & DAUGHTER ‘SEXPERTS’ – In what may well be a Mother & Daughter ‘world first’ Dr Hall’s daughter, PamElla, also spoke at the S.H.A.R.E Seminars  PamElla is a practicing Tantra Coach, helping men, women and couples to find greater fulfilment in their lives.  Both Dr Janet and PamElla are available for interview.

What Is a Sex Headache?


On a more serious note, however, a sex headache can be a warning of something much more sinister going on. Any sexual activity can trigger sex headaches. The exact prevalence in not known, although it is more common in women than in men.


There are two types of sex headaches – the pre-orgasmic and the orgasmic headache.  Neuroimaging is needed to distinguish primary, benign causes of a sexual headache from secondary, potentially life-threatening causes.


Abrupt-onset and slow-to-build sex headaches can be primary headache disorders not associated with any underlying condition. However, sex headaches associated with loss of consciousness, vomiting, stiff neck, other neurological symptoms and severe pain lasting more than 24 hours are more likely to be due to an underlying cause including:

  • A widening or bubble in the wall of an artery inside your head (intracranial aneurysm).
  • An abnormal connection between arteries and veins in the brain (arteriovenous malformation) that bleeds into the spinal fluid-filled space in and around the brain.
  • Bleeding into the wall of an artery leading to the brain (dissection).
  • Stroke.
  • Coronary artery disease.
  • Use of some medications, such as birth control pills.
  • Inflammation from certain infections.

Several theories have been put forth to explain the underlying mechanism of a primary sexual headache. The leading explanation involves exertion leading to a sudden increase in intracranial pressure or an inappropriate reaction in the cerebral vasculature. Neural hypersensitivity, similar to a migraine, may also play a role.


There are two subtypes of primary sexual headache:

  • Early sexual activity: usually of short duration and moderately severe. It is a tight, cramping, dull pain, often intensifying as sexual excitement increases. It is thought to relate to excessive contraction of the head and neck musculature that occurs before orgasm.
  • Orgasmic: which is severe, comes on abruptly and occurs at the point of orgasm. Postponing orgasm can prevent a sex headache. It is the most common type of headache associated with sexual activity.

Primary sexual headache is not usually recurrent:

  • It may appear suddenly, last for many months or years and stop abruptly.
  • It may occasionally occur on a regular basis for several months or, rarely, years.
  • Attacks may be intermittent and mild, or so severe as to scare the sufferer from attempting sex.

There appears to be a high comorbidity with a migraine, benign exertional headache and tension-type headache. The occurrence is not dependent on particular sexual habits. It most often occurs during sexual activity with the usual partner but also occurs during masturbation.

Risk factors include obesity, kneeling position during intercourse, the degree of sexual excitement, stress, history of a migraine and an exertion headache and a family history of a headache and arterial occlusive disease.

Pharmacological triggers may include marijuana, amyl nitrite, amfetamines, sildenafil and some anxiolytics.

Sensible actions to implement to avoid sex headaches include weight reduction, an increase in exercise, taking the passive role in intercourse and avoidance of drugs which act as trigger factors are all thought to be helpful.
