Colour me happy

Colour me happy
Alison Standish

Colour permeates every aspect of our lives, but did you that certain hues can improve health and wellbeing?

Tickled pink. Got the blues. Green with envy. Shrinking violet. Seeing red. Colour is everywhere, we see it, eat it, wear it, paint out homes in it – but do we know how to harness its powerful vibration to support us in our daily lives? That’s where ‘colour therapy’ comes in.

As Founder of The Colour Ministry Alison Standish is an expert in combining the ancient wisdom of colour therapy along with modern day technological developments to create a unique range of treatments, workshops and certified courses, all geared around helping people live happier lives.

You might have a favourite colour, or feel drawn to a particular shade, but have you ever stopped to think about what could be behind this? Standish and her team offer practical and technical information to help you to get to know the psychological and healing effects of how to introduce colour into our everyday world. Through a ‘colour reading’ you can uncover your personal colours, as well as discovering how you and your colours interact with your significant other’s.

Just as we reached for coloured crayons as children, giving us the freedom to create, colour still offers the opportunity for creative expression and enables us to escape and fantasise. By understanding your own unique colours you can unlock understanding about yourself and your connections with family and friends, why some get on and others may find it a little more challenging. To repurpose a famous saying, embrace the rainbow – but understand it too.

The colour purple was worn by emperors and heads of churches. The Byzantine Empress Theodora is often depicted wearing a purple robe, the dye a Tyrian purple made painstakingly from the secretions of Murex snails.

Employed by a switched-on, smart generation who are aware of how pink has become a colour that is no longer meant for women only, but can be worn by men, too.

A classic, flattering and multifaceted colour that is enduringly popular with the fashion set, it manages to be both mysterious and self-important, anonymous and attention-drawing.
