Escape this social media trap. It’s an addiction you can quit!

Social media is a great way of keeping connected, seeing each other’s picture, sharing jokes, checking in on each other and just keeping up with what’s going on. And here is the big BUT, too much of a good thing can become a bad thing. There is a great concern that people are getting hooked on social media and preferring it to real live social interactions. There is a cost to this as human beings need face to face social interaction to be truly happy and joyful.

If you recognise this behaviour in yourself, someone you love, and especially any children, now really is the time to address it.

Free help is available to all Phela Wellness members, just call 0800 22 93 55.
The counsellor will deal with your call in the strictest confidence.

What we can learn from our Superheroes

Whether or not you like superhero movies, there is a good reason why they are so popular: Even though the likes of Wonder Woman, Batman and Thor are larger-than-life characters, these superheroes essentially go through similar challenges we do. Spider-Man suffers loss, suddenly has more power than what he ever wanted or dreamed of, and has to confront what this means to him.

What have movies got to do with Human Rights?

What have movies got to do with Human Rights?

Human rights and the challenges that accompany freedom of expression are the themes of many movies. ‘Philadelphia’, ‘Erin Brockovich’ and ‘Blind Side’, are three such movies you are likely to have seen.
