Christmas can bring up a wealth of different emotions: from excitement to dread, and everything in between. Christmas - for a fortunate majority of us - represents time off from work and time to spend with family and friends, but this isn't good news for everyone. Christmas can be full of happiness, or riddled with painful memories and family tension. For many of us, it's a combination.
At welldoing.org, we're lucky to receive wonderful contributions from our therapist members, therapy clients, and readers of the site. Here we've collected a range of our Christmas-related content, old and new, that we hope will be supportive, whatever your feelings about the festive period.
