Exploring Hygge: Celebrating the Simple Pleasures in Life
10 October 2017, 19:00 – 20:30
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL
Hygge has become a hot lifestyle trend, with a philosophy based on kindness to self, cherishing time with loved ones and finding ways to enjoy simple things. Denmark is consistently ranked as the world’s happiest nation, and hygge is an integral part of its culture. Charlotte Abrahams, author of Hygge: A Celebration Of Simple Pleasures. Living The Danish Way, will explain why she thinks happiness and hygge are connected, and share her thoughts on how focusing on uncomplicated joys can help us live more contented lives.
You will learn:
- How to bring hygge into your life without giving up anything or taking a course
- How to think positively about your downtime, so that you really notice it
- Why being kind to yourself and considering your own happiness is important, and not self-indulgent

Break Free! How to Stop Feeling Trapped
with Kim Morgan
7th November 2017, 19:00 – 20:30
Brockway Room, Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL
In this lively and interactive session, coach, speaker, author and Psychologies Magazine columnist Kim Morgan will bring to life the contents of her and Geoff Watts’ book ‘The Coach’s Casebook – Mastering The Twelve Traits That Trap Us’ (Inspect & Adapt, £16.99). Traits such as perfectionism, impostor syndrome, people-pleasing, fierce independence and procrastination come up time and again in coaching relationships, and while they have often been an instrumental part of people’s success, when overdone, they end up holding them back. This workshop explores the idea that we have a greater range of behaviours available to us than we routinely use. Imagine how it would feel if you could play down ‘procrastination’ at will, summon ‘assertiveness’ whenever you needed it, or let go of ‘perfectionism’.
You will learn how to:
- Experiment with different behaviour styles in a fun way
- Identify your overdone and underdone traits
- Develop the confidence to use a wider range of behaviours
- Understand the real impact of overdone traits, such as people-pleasing, perfectionism and impostor syndrome
