Blue Monday

Helen Bainbridge | 18th January 2019

Is it just me, or does Christmas feel like a really long time ago? I don't know how we're half way through January already. Many would tell you that means Blue Monday is coming up.

Here are some thoughts that I s

Shine a light on ... Anxiety (part 1)

Grace Read | 18th May 2018

Everyone I know has anxiety. Not the kind of anxiety that you feel before you speak in public, or when you see a massive spider scuttling towards you. I mean, the kind of anxiety that hangs over your life, that is disproportionate to your circumstances and that prevents you from doing normal things. Everyone I know has experienced a period of this

Yellow is normally the colour that is associated with spring but with the invention of things like social media and 24hr news outlets we can often focus only on things that are negative. The challenge thi

Sasha Austin-Seade | 2nd February 2018

The dictionary defines kindness as the quality of being gentle, caring, and helpful. Or it is an act that is a spontaneous gesture of goodwill towards someone or something I've been thinking a lot about kindness over the last few weeks simply because I've set myself a task of being kinder this year. But I've been wondering what it's all about. Is
