As the world changes and continues to challenge the way we have always done things, as individuals we need to find new ways to adapt in order to build and maintain our own wellbeing.
We aim to translate our work into everyday practice to ensure everyone can own their own space and contribute positively to the world around us.
We believe individual wellbeing can play a role in addressing many societal challenges such as: presenteeism at work, mental ill health and fragmented communities but moving ourselves from coping to thriving isn't easy.
After hearing so many people's stories, from many walks of life, it struck us how many people don't even realise there is a choice.
We simply wanted to let everyone know you can choose and make sure everyone can access the tools and their personal resources required to thrive, sustainably.
No matter your age, gender, sexuality, race, religion or circumstance - everyone should have the choice to thrive.

What's in a name
Everyone asks us why Tasting Colours which is great, it always starts a conversation, so here it is.
Tasting Colours is a form of synesthesia - when stimulation of one sensory pathway leads to the involuntary stimulation of another. Jo Malone is a synesthete, she talks openly about her synesthesia and how it led to the success of her business.
We're not sure if this part is scientifically proven but as children we have the ability to taste colours. Sadly as we get older and start to be influenced by the world around us we turn off the pathways we don't use and our amazing abilities get dialled down - that bit is proven!
When individuals and organisations work with us, they talk about how they can achieve anything - they feel anything is possible, imagine feeling so alive you could taste colours!
Meet the team
Hello, I'm Helen.
I started my professional life as a marketeer in the airlines and consumer electronics but found the pull to purpose led action more powerful, so I ditched the suit, rolled my sleeves up and got involved with the not for profit and third sector. I never looked back. Getting up every morning to challenge the status quo is a gift!
Hi I am Clare.
My background is in social care, safeguarding and third sector but I got my love of supporting others from being a Samaritan many years ago. I have a passion for joining lived experiences with programme design to deliver effective, impactful, people led solutions. The short version - I simply love people.
