Pressure. It’s all around us. Never more so, it could be argued, than now, at Christmas time . . . Mistletoe and Wine? For some, perhaps. For others, it’s a period to dread. Mental Illness doesn’t take a break for the festive season. If anything, it intensifies. Depression. Expectation. Drugs. Debt. Drink. Bereavement. Loneliness. Painful...

So first the good news . . . Bullying – in the traditional sense, at least – is said to no longer be quite the problem it once was in schools in England. This is a conclusion based upon research and figures that the Department for Education has released in recent days to coincide with...

Steve Jobs – the Universal Studios biopic that is scheduled to be released in the UK this week – looks to be a fascinating film and one that we’re looking forward to watching. The most interesting aspect might not be the movie itself, however, but rather an enlightening interview that Kate Winslet, who stars alongside...

Perfect bodies. They’re everywhere. In adverts. On Instagram. Television. Magazines. They’re impossible to avoid. Last month, Protein World’s ‘Beach Body’ billboards hit the headlines after being plastered all over the London Underground. These have since been banned. Taken down. Never to be seen again. Yet damage has been done and there are countless other offending...

Could YOUR child climb a tree? Many, we contend, would have no idea how, while others, it’s fair to say, would have little or no inclination. Give them an Xbox (or something similar) and it’d be a different matter . . . That children have, in general terms, become so detached from the great outdoors...

This means that, right across the country, young people are, at this precise moment, under the most extreme pressure imaginable.   The resulting stresses and strains have been much discussed in the media in recent times. This is good and bad. Good in that talking about such problems is always the all-important first step to...
