    Episode 7: Love

    What does love look like? Some people find it hard to say “I love you!” but it can also be too easy to say the words without really knowing what they mean.

    Episode 6: Loneliness

    Loneliness is an experience that we can all relate to, but almost 1 in 5 people in the UK often or always feel lonely. The figures are higher for the elderly and for young people.

    Episode 3: Worry

    “Don’t worry!” Easy to say, and hard to do. If only we had a “worry switch”, so that we could simply turn off our worries!

    Episode 2: Living in Isolation

    Episode 2: Living in Isolation

    Even for those of us who like solitude, this can be too much of a good thing. For others, the thought of being cut off from others for a long time is little short of soul destroying. Isolation can be a cause of anxiety, fear and depression.
