Welcome to the place where exploring the tricky stories of life is common place.

Tricky stories encompass all the thorny, often misunderstood and thorny subjects that permeate through our lives.

What are the Tricky Stories of life?

The sorts of topics you’ll find here include end of life care, death, suicide, illness, mental health and any sort of topic that can cause us to cringe and draw circles in the sand when facing them in real life.

Part exploring through writing and story and part conversation starter, Tricky Stories is here for you when you need them the most.

The aim is to lift the lid on the subjects that we traditionally shy away from to improve our understanding of them.

This in turn helps create a stronger, more supportive and open dialogue about some of life’s greatest challenges.
