The Psychology of Hair

Last weekend, while walking with my fabulous friend and her nine-year-old daughter, I was called in to "co-parent" (I love that my friend refers to me as that - such a privilege and so generous!). You see, for the first time in her life, little Miss Nine wanted to cut her very long and luscious, thick brown hair which virtually touches her bottom it's that long! The girls at school all have hair just below their shoulders and her mum worried that perhaps the only reason she wanted to cut her hair was to be like everyone else.

The Psychology of Claustrophobia

Makeup: The Psychology of It

I'm a late bloomer when it comes to being a grown-up. While my friends' handbag collections were growing by the week, I persevered with (stylish) backpacks well into my thirties and when they woke-up an hour early to apply make-up and straighten hair, I prioritised extra sleep!

Earlier this year, six-year-old Scarlett (she's 7 now!) wrote to us at The Psychology of It asking a very important question - "Why do people live if they're only going to die?" We answered Scarlett in an open letter. So impressed by the curiosity and intelligence of this young lady, we thought it only fitting to invite her over for a cup of tea and what turned out to be a very special Conversation on the Couch. You can see it here.

In early September, 2016, we discovered by chance a Facebook post by Christopher Sewell describing in raw detail, his first-hand struggle living with anxiety and depression. Christopher is a husband and a father and a surfer and a mate who is not defined by his disorders. Instead, he is brave and generous and shares this incredible insight into his experiences.
