Self-help material - Susan Jeffers and Louise L. HayHere at our Hillcroft College we frequently run courses with confidence building in them and our students tell us they want more of it. And they’d also like more self-help material in our Learning Resources Centre.

Following their feedback we’ve been boosting up our material on confidence, positive thinking and overcoming anxiety and fear.

So here’s our pick of what we have so far – with material by Susan Jeffers and Louise L. Hay. We’ve got them in audio and print to suit our learners. They come with tips to help you think positively through mantras, meditation and positive visualisation.

Susan Jeffers and Louise L. Hay both have inspiring websites to take you further on your journey with daily affirmations.

The Women of the World (WoW) festival at London’s Southbank Centre runs from 6-10 March.

It’s ticketed and  includes events, debates and activities. Guest speakers include Naomi Woolf, Alice Walker, Ahdaf Souief, Sarah Brown, Sandi Toksvig and many more. There’s also a speed mentoring session. Take a look at the WoW Festival website for more information.

There are also a number of free events in East and Southeast London too. These include exhibitions at local art galleries and museums. You can find a listing of these on the Alternative Arts Women’s History Month page.
