Who are we
Kintsugi Hope is a charity based in the UK striving to make a
difference to peoples mental wellbeing.
'Kintsugi' (金継ぎ) is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. The word means 'golden joinery' in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique than it was prior to being broken. Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.
We want to see a world where mental and emotional health is understood and accepted, with safe and supportive communities for everyone to grow and flourish.
A Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Group is a safe and supportive space:
- for people who feel or have felt overwhelmed.
- providing tools for self-management.
- in a facilitated peer mentoring style setting.
Issues covered include; disappointment, loss, anxiety, anger perfectionism, shame and resilience. Feedback so far has been amazing.Find out more
