  • Facing fear when shit gets real

    It’s pretty tough to live in the now right now. When the future looms large with unpleasant possibilities and our present situation appears to continuously remind us of all that’s chaotic and uncertain. “Don’t be afraid”, “no need to panic” and “you need to calm down” are hearty battle cries from well-meaning folks who aren’t partial to anxiety or are trying to subtly soothe themselves. But denying the reality of our feelings during this time does a great dishonour to our emotional wellbeing and lived experience.

  • Understanding therapy styles

    When heading into therapy, it can be overwhelming to read about all the different styles of therapy that you might encounter with your practitioner. Lots of articles about therapeutic styles (or modalities as they’re also known) are often written for the practitioners/psychologists/counsellors and not that easy for those who are undertaking the therapy (without a psychology or counselling degree) to understand.

  • I will do anything for (self) love, but I wont do that.

    Many of us fantasise about a life in which we are grounded, calm, and able to move about in the world with purpose and compassion. Wouldn’t it be such a luxury to not dissolve into an anxious puddle every time you have an important work deadline? Or to not sizzle like a stress sausage trying to keep your living space and family life in some kind of order? Or not to sink deep into a pool of disappointment and disillusion when thinking about your current life and the one you’d prefer to be living?

  • Why you’ll never know who you are & what you want until you give yourself a f*cking break

    Out of high school I was very passionate and driven. There was a whole life and career that I envisaged for myself and I was keen to get started on it. However, as become clear through my tumultuous, laborious and scattered twenties, none of the things I believed I wanted for my life actually brought me any joy or sense of accomplishment. I drifted from one career aspiration to the next, with fabulous opportunities to grow and cultivate myself in live theatre, commercial radio, film & television production, and the visual arts. And each time, the opportunity and experience fizzled out leaving nothing more than a brittle sense of disappointment and failure.

  • What to say to a friend when they are feeling emotional

    For a long time in our history, emotions were something that children expressed. But as adults, you were expected to grow out of them. Only, the thing is, is that we don’t “grow out of them”. Experiencing emotion is a central part of the human experience. It has evolved through the mammalian centres of our brain (known as the limbic system) to help us thrive as a species.

  • Ditch the Vision Board for a Values Board

    It’s important to get clear on what we want out of life, but our guidance should come from within, not from external inspiration of what success looks like in the pages of magazines or on celebrity social feeds. So, inspired by my love of craft projects, self-exploration and a desire to set up this year for success, I dived into building my own, more nourishing version of the vision board - The values board.

  • We wish you a… Our honest wishes for you, at this time of year.

    This time of year is often full of wishes of good will. Folks wishing you a “Merry Christmas” and a “Happy New Year” – But as ~nice~ as that is, sometimes we need some well wishes that are a little meatier, that help us cling onto something precious or hopeful or beautiful for the future, in light of all the challenges and hardships we may currently face. So we decided to put together a few of our own wishes of good will, that will hopefully resonate with you, wherever you’re at…
