The dating world is notoriously hard to navigate, with a language all its own. It’s filled with hidden rules and regulations that none of us seem clued up on. Figuring out if our date is actually interested can be a skill all on its own, but what if you already have a mental illness that makes it difficult to connect...

With the current divorce rate at about 9.8% per 1000 married couples, according to Office for National Statistics, it’s no surprise that many of us will live with divorce at least once in our lives. I was knocked for six when I divorced from my husband. I didn’t know what I was meant to be doing with my life; all my...

The 50th anniversary of the “decriminalisation of homosexuality” has been met with pride and jubilation by many in the queer community, as well as respect for those who were never granted any freedom at all. It should be a moment of unity, but instead it’s a time fraught with tension for those overlooked. The focus on...

We’ve all been scared of something. I’m scared of spiders and heights. But there’s one thing that scares me the most: not being good enough. Not being good enough for a job or not being good enough for someone else to love or even not being good enough to even bother. I think this is something that we’ve all suffered...

The Doctor’s new gender has been a massive area of debate with some being shocked that an alien who can transform into any shape or form could possibly be...

After the Finsbury Park attack, the right-wing media and far-right personalities were attacked by the left. The Daily Mail, The Sun, Katie Hopkins… They all came under fire for their repetitive anti-Muslim rhetoric. It’s easy for us to blame these media sources for the radicalisation of white men. These newspapers are...

With the challenge of doing something along the theme of ‘Mind over Matter’ Liz, Emily and Errol headed to a local climbing wall to overcome some personal (and physical) hurdles.   First of all… Why climbing? Liz: I just like climbing things. I’m literally an anxious primate. Errol: Three reasons: I’m a glutton for...

Over the last year, I’ve seen a significant increase in the number of people in their early 20’s coming to see me. I see people of all ages, so there’s nothing new in seeing people of this age group, but the concern for me is the reason why they feel they need sex therapy. They’re seeking out professional help because...

  I’m sure if you’re reading this, I don’t need to tell you that being mentally ill, or having a mental health issue is expensive. And not just expensive, it’s expensive.
