BEATING THE WINTER BLUES

A holistic approach to staying well: an evening with Rachel Kelly

Rachel Kelly brings us her hard-won insights into how to sustain well-being. Since suffering her last serious bout of depression in 2004, the former Times journalist has evolved a holistic approach to staying well which includes abandoning perfectionism and enjoying the comfort of poetry.

Rachel’s book about her recovery Walking on Sunshine: 52 Small Steps to Happiness is an internationally acclaimed best seller. Her new book, The Happy Kitchen: Good Mood Food, explores the role of food in developing a healthy mind. Rachel has worked with nutritional therapist Alice Mackintosh to look at how what we eat can target particular symptoms, from insomnia and mood swings to stress and exhaustion.

“A balanced and gentle companion on the road to a happier life.” Oliver James
“A deceptively simple guide to a less complicated life – Kelly’s warm, wise personal tips have universal application.” Bel Mooney

“After Rachel gave her talk at Linklaters, so many people were talking about it . . . from suited lawyers, to business services people as well as Ryan from the post room. She delivered a difficult subject so naturally and did not scare us off with psychobabble.” Joanna Healey
