take time to recover

It’s been a tough 12 months so, in this issue, we’re focusing on how we can restore ourselves. In our Dossier on page 48, Nathalie Hourihan takes us through a therapeutic process called Internal Family Systems to see if she can heal her past and find new ways to survive and thrive in the world. She gives us practical tools to concentrate on recovery and renewal. We also encourage you to reach out to people who can raise you up. ‘Women support women – they are the bedrock of my sanity,’ says our inspirational cover star, Olympian Denise Lewis.

STRINGING THE PIECES TOGETHER I FOUND ELLEN TOUT’S Eco Worrier column about the ethics of knitting with wool (April) thought-provoking. Over the past few years, I have tried to reduce my plastic usage and my goal is to live as natural a life as possible. In the latest lockdown, I started knitting again after a hiatus of several years. I hadn’t considered the type of yarn I used until I read Ellen’s column. I had assumed that ‘proper’ wool would be best, without understanding the process and ethics of wool production. Lots of food for thought! Keep up the great work. I look forward to reading Ellen’s column every month. Jo…

letter of gratitude

CAT’S WHISKERS MY PARTNER, PATRYCJA, has been a Psychologies reader for many years and recently became a subscriber. Every issue contains so much! We enjoy the magazine together and receiving it in the post is a little slice of joy. Even our furry friend Lolly (pictured) takes a peek! Many thanks from us all. George I’d like to thank… My partner, James We met during lockdown last year and both worked hard as frontline key workers as the pandemic changed all our lives. When we both contracted Covid in January, you put my needs before yours – a sign of true love. Even though you were sick and tired yourself, you looked after me for weeks while I was poorly. You saw me exhausted, vulnerable and grumpy, but you took it all in your stride. I will…

find what feeds you

What fills your tank, and what drains it? This beautiful illustration is from the new book by Lisa Congdon, You Will Leave A Trail Of Stars. An artist, educator, speaker and author of several books, Congdon says: ‘Make space. Get enough rest. Be curious. Read books. Watch films. Listen to podcasts. Go look at art. Get out into the world. Go to therapy. Participate in a revolution. Uncover your own story. Find what feeds you.’ Colourful and wise inspiration on every page. • ‘You Will Leave A Trail Of Stars: Words Of Inspiration For Blazing Your Own Path’ by Lisa Congdon (Chronicle, £11.99) ILLUSTRATION: LISA CONGDON, FROM ‘YOU WILL LEAVE A TRAIL OF STARS’…
