Beyond self-care

In the UK we are in our third lockdown. In January, the darkness of winter.  Now slowly coming up to a year since our first lockdown. This means we need to tend to ourselves in a way that we have never done before.  This pandemic is showing us that we cannot continue...

A moment to pause before 2021

You’d be forgiven for wanting to eagerly move from 2020 to 2021. This year has been hard. We have been in something collective, across the whole world. But it’s been different for each and every one of us. As I spoke to my Dad who has struggled being on his own. To...

To you this Christmas
