“Ever feel like you're the craziest person in the room?” observes Taylor. “That's not a good sign when you're a psychotherapist.”

Taylor’s theme is high on the media agenda at the moment and mental health is currently the focus of the Channel 4 Goes Mad,  season of programmes challenging mental health stigma and discrimination, which has  featured&n…

Oxford University: Geek or Chic?

Oxford University: Geek or Chic?

1st May 2013

‘Oxford University-the home to numerous geeky students who move away from daddy’s estate each year, to specialise in their area of excellence. They live within the walls of Hogwarts-esque buildings, in a bubble away from the rest of society, as they have come to university to work, not to play. To fit in, an element of eccentricity is a must and a general knowledge about a range of intellectual topics is essential.’ This was what I thought before I arrived at Jesus College, Oxford, to begin my undergraduate English Literature degree.

Miranda told Brucie last year in an interview that she…

Real Funny Women Award Winner's show

Real Funny Women Award Winner's show

23rd April 2013

Funny Women first met Kristin Hallenga at the final of the Funny Women Awards in September 2012. Kris had been nominated for the Real Funny Women Award by the editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine, Louise Court, for the inspiring way that she approached both life and business with a cheeky sense of humour. Kris was the worthy winner of the Award, and was warm, funny and self-deprecating. What you would never have guessed simply to look at her is that 27 year old Kris suffers from breast cancer, which has reached stage four. There is no stage five.

Kris has used this devastating news to make it her mission to inspire a new generation of young women to check their breasts. Kris is passionate …
