We'd all feel less weird and alone if everyone were more honest and open about how they feel. That's why we're making it part of our mission to talk about the quiet stuff that still seems a little taboo. Starting right here, in this video.

You might call it 'social anxiety', 'shyness', or just 'too quiet'. Or it might be a sense that you're not good enough, or defective somehow.

But at the heart of it is that deeply painful feeling of believing we're flawed; 'less than' others and not worthy of belonging.

Protecting ourselves by withdrawing, hiding, staying small and silent; we try to avoid any situation in which our flaws might be seen by other people the best we can -we reject ourselves so others can't, missing so many of the good things in life!

Well, what if you knew you don't have to live this way?

We're here to show you that you're not alone and you're not broken; reframing quiet and uncovering the confidence you already have inside of you as a perfectly imperfect person.

Bringing like-minded people together, we're creating a community of understanding and a safe place for you to learn, grow, make friends and practice your social abilities...

What would you like help with right now?

Connecting

Gently connecting with like-minded people at your own pace in a place where it's ok to talk, and it's ok to be quiet too.

One-to-one support

Supporting you to change how you're thinking, feeling and behaving so you can live a more courageous, connected life.

Workshops

Increasing your self-awareness and understanding through sharing knowledge and techniques to support your growth.

"Let go of who you think you're supposed to be... embrace who you are"

Valentine’s Day can be far from a happy occasion for many of us. It’s a time when we can feel very alone and get deep into comparisons, self-criticisms and shame. With hearts and flowers everywhere we look, it’s easy to feel a heightened, more painful sense of our own perceived flaws and wonder if we’ll […]

Can you fend off the fear with alcohol? What Dry January has taught me about drinking for confidence

Can you fend off the fear with alcohol?

What Dry January has taught me about drinking for confidence. I’ve always loved booze. Drinking has been a way of calming my feelings of social anxiety, giving me the confidence to speak to strangers and get up on the dancefloor at parties. But recently, I’ve been rethinking my relationship with my much loved social lubricant. […]
