  1. Maggie

    Really good journal, very interesting content – enjoyed reading about all the things that have been achieved since beginning of HG.

  2. Anne

    I always look forward to my next issue. The price may seem expensive but that’s because the journal doesn’t take advertising so every page is full of helpful, interesting information and articles. I’ve learnt so much from it over the years and constantly refer to my back issues for inspiration and ideas. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in psychology and human nature.
