What we can learn from failure

Written by Danjela Falzon
We live in a society where being successful or ‘being the best’ is given enormous value. From a young age we’re taught to aim for the highest grades, to do well at sport, and that winning or achieving will earn us admiration and respect. We often internalise the message that failure is to be avoided at all costs, often experienced as shameful, humiliating or as a blow to our self-worth. Howe…

What makes you happy?

Written by Charlene Borg
Have you ever heard the term ‘horizontal thinking’? It’s relatively new to me too. I first came across this term in an article by Elizabeth Gilbert, an author I love. It refers to the spiral thinking that goes on in our heads when lying in bed, as we go over aspects of life which we never imagined we’d experience, or any other thoughts, fears and/or mental states we find ourselves in. I a…

Covid-19 has impacted our lives in so many different ways. Ten months in and we’re still ploughing on, many people struggling with feelings of anxiety, low mood and frustration. We know this isn’t easy. We also know that one day at a time, with the support of one another, you will get through this. And when you do, you’ll emerge stronger, more resilient and more equipped to deal with life’…

Understanding the different forms of narcissism

Written by Danjela Falzon
When we hear the term ‘narcissist’, we usually think of the grandiose, self-important, arrogant and powerful world leader or celebrity. Recently, however, the term ‘narcissist’ is increasingly being used to refer to co-workers, bosses, partners or family members. This may be due to a rise in narcissism or simply increased awareness of this toxic personality style. Whichever it is, the real…

The key to happiness and fulfilment – Cherish the present

Written by Maria Mifsud
We live in a hyper-busy world, where our pace of life is always frantic. Our minds are constantly occupied and we are forever up to something. With that in mind, I would like you, the reader, to take a moment and think about the last time that you did nothing – just 10 minutes doing absolutely nothing. And when I say nothing, I really do mean nothing. Therefore, no emailing, no texting, no inte…

The Downside of Perfectionism

Written by Danjela Falzon
As I sit in front of clients who are relentlessly self-critical, pushing themselves to achieve one goal after another and suffering from anxiety, burnout and other mental health issues, I feel compelled to support them to understand where their perfectionism is stemming from and how it’s impacting their lives. I feel particularly passionate about this subject because of my own experiences of per…

The dopamine effect of dogs: How caring for a dog can drastically improve our mental health

Written by Maria Mifsud
Bee is a large and muscular, black dog. In contrast, his puppy-like face is irresistibly adorable. He is an AmStaff mixed breed and was adopted by Shane and Melanie, a kind-hearted couple who regularly volunteer at a dog sanctuary. Apart from being a loyal and loving pet dog, Bee also accompanies his human friends during adventures whenever a dog that is in danger needs rescuing. In April 2021,…
