1. Emotional First Aid Kit •20 printed booklets in box | 157 x 115 x 45mm

A box of wise emergency advice for 20 key psychological situations, including: Friendship, Love, Sex, Work and Self.

We know how useful it can be to have a first aid kit to hand. A kit naturally can’t solve everything, but what counts is that it is immediately present and at once highly effective. It contains what’s most urgently needed to contain a situation - until calm returns or more substantial help can be called for.

This is a counterpart to that medical first aid kit, an emotional kit that provides a set of useful salves to some of life’s most challenging psychological situations.

Hopefully we won’t face them very often (if at all), but knowing how we might respond can lend us an important degree of confidence and resilience. This kit is an artful collection of some of what the wisest and kindest, most experienced and most thoughtful people might say to us if they were beside us in a crisis.

Emergencies Include:

‘I can’t sleep’
‘I’m in the wrong job’
‘I might be turning into an addict’
‘I’m so envious’
‘I don’t know how to make friends’
‘I will never find the right partner’
‘I’m going to be disgraced’
‘I’m a failure, I’ve wasted my life’

2. If the Worst Comes to the Worst • A desktop flip book Wiro bound | Freestanding | FSC Mix paper | 105mm x 166mm x 40mm

We are often terrified of so many things: disgrace, illness, unemployment, our mortality, the suffering and death of loved ones. When these fears arise, we are often encouraged, out of kindness, to think of the best-case scenarios. This is a well-meaning move, but it also - unintentionally - leaves our fears to fester. They fill us with unnamed dread and sometimes loom far larger than they should. Therefore, the opposite move - as displayed here - involves looking our anxieties directly in the eye, refusing to be cowed by them and examining them exhaustively so as to drain them of their debilitating power. Doing this can bring us to an important realisation: we could cope, even if the worst did come to the worst.

What follows are some invitations to meditate on scary things; not in order to depress us, but to lend us a buoyant, optimistic sense of our resilience and adaptability.

3. Know Yourself Prompt Cards • 60 cards in box | 104mm x 73mm x 36mm.

60 prompt cards designed to help lead you through the important task of knowing yourself a little better in life.

It's hard to understand who we really are: what we want, how we feel and why we react as we do. This lack of self-knowledge can be trouble, for it makes us get into the wrong relationships, pick unsatisfactory jobs or spend money unwisely. No wonder Socrates summed up all the counsel of philosophy in just two words: 'Know Yourself'.

These cards are designed to assist us in a journey of self-knowledge; they present us with a range of ideas and questions that can help us to understand ourselves better. Each card carries an exercise on one side and a piece of analysis on the reverse to help you gain insight and clarity on that ever elusive subject: yourself.
