We're willing to talk about the things that others aren't

"The more I looked into your site and the different worksheets and things, the more tears welled up in my eyes. I'm not alone. I realise that, and there’s people here to help me. They don’t know me but they’re there and they care about me. A total stranger."

Marriage and Relationships within Cultural Contexts

Come to our final free wellbeing workshop for an opportunity to explore experiences of marriage/partnerships, within a cultural context. The workshop is for individuals who are genuinely interested in this topic and would like to deepen the conversation by sharing their experiences – highs, lows, challenges and celebrations.

I am writing this because I need to read this - guest blog from Hattie Porter

I felt worried about writing this. It feels self-centred to be so focused on what I’m going through amidst the scale of a pandemic. But that’s exactly why I need to write this. Because I am not the only one feeling like this. Because sometimes just hearing an echo of your own thoughts is enough to feel less alone for a little while.
