A Trip Down Memory Lane

The new academic year will soon be upon us. Some parents will see their child head off for university. You may look at this as freedom-at-last: your child will be leaving home, allowing you to do what you have longed to do all these years. Some of you will fear the empty nest syndrome. And for others, possibly most, a mixture of both.

Helping Your Child Understand the Difference Between Sadness and Depression

The growing number of young people with mental health issues is worrying me. I see young people everyday who are struggling; they don't know what to do, their parents don't know what to do and the schools are finding it difficult to cope. We need a system that is much more able to support those young people who need it.

Wise men and women mould their characters. Stress has physiological effects on the body and dampens the interaction we have with our true nature. We need a strong foundational basis for our mental health and mind-body harmony provides us with exactly that.

Anger Is Your Friend

Anger, like all of our emotional states, is pointing us towards a personal insight. Dig a little, without judging or self criticism, for what could be beneath the anger; maybe it's a value we didn't know we held, maybe it unearths a blind spot, maybe it shows us what we really care about.

Boys Don't Cry?

I've not been privy to my own father's tears. I've seen him get worked into advance states of exuberance and dejection at West Ham football matches but I've never seen him have a proper sob. I'm not sure I'd want to. The awkwardness would hang in the air and embarrass us both.

I met Rosie Linder a fortnight ago. Like me, she is a middle aged mother with two children. Like me she wants to connect with her children. "I wanted a fun way to talk about emotions with my daughters. If you just ask them, they are very resistant. They feel they are being put on the spot."

The Role of Therapeutic Storytelling in Early Years Loss And Bereavement

If you ask a bereaved child a direct question such as, 'how do you feel about Mummy dying? their response is likely to be a shoulder shrug rather than a chatty response. On the other hand, if you tell them a story about an animal losing his Mum, the child is likely to identify with the animal and tell you how they feel.

Children are generally mindful, they live moment to moment quite easily, the key is to encourage them to maintain this skill. We are reading lots about supporting children in schools to be mindful, what about Toddlers?

How Emotional Is Your Intelligence?

Being aware of your emotions can be difficult; at times it can be overwhelming... You need to be able to step back and see what you are experiencing, accept the emotion and then choose more positive thoughts and behaviours to enhance your level of happiness.

The Surprising Up Side of Feeling Down

The problem with happiness is that it makes us too comfortable; we strive for it and (some of us) eventually reach our destination only to find that it's so damn good that we want things to stay exactly how they are.

I hope both you and I read this in a few years and realise we learnt how to live in our own ways. I hope we learn more every day and I hope memories that we made become (in time) something we come to treasure rather than despise.

Living Life - Making A Change

People that don't know me, who have just met me, often say to me that I am a well-mannered and polite young man. I really appreciate what they say as it makes me feel good about myself. They are right, however I believe they're are two sides to every person, not just the saying 'two sides to every story'. I don't necessarily mean that I am a bad person, I'm just allowing myself to be honest about the other half of me...

From honeymoon stage to homesickness, culture shock is just something we cannot escape when we go for the big move abroad. From sudden euphoria, to sudden sadness, to gradual acceptance - it really is an emotional roller-coaster.

I think we have all had this dilemma. Who do we stay friends with after a couple divorces or separates? Hopefully you can stay friends with both parties, but that can be difficult as we are often dealing with human emotions and judgemental attitudes.

The key message of the day was that negative emotions are predominantly driven by our egos - ego defined as an attachment to a self-image, particularly one that we seek to achieve or protect. This could be material success - house, car, job, bank balance.

Understanding Emotion

The truth is that there are still many questions and confusion on the definition of emotion, both from the science and business communities. There is a lot more research that needs to be done to understand their full role and function, however, there is already a lot of compelling research that allows us to form a general picture on what an emotion is.

Crying Is Not Weak

I'm slowly learning that crying and being upset are not a signs of weakness - they are simply emotions like any other. They are natural human reactions to difficult situations. Everyone has times when they are upset, when they cry, when they completely break down and sob into their pillow.

Be mindful of those who come knocking on the doors of your senses: eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. When you see something that you like, for instance, or something you dislike, you have already let a 'feeling visitor' through the door.
