The positive planer

Ali and Finn met on social media, after both sufferings with depression and anxiety.

They both felt that there was very little support to them during these most difficult times and so decided to create something that would help give more people the moments to see the beautiful amongst the dark clouds.

Ali, is a design graduate, with a passion for beautiful design. She lives in Bath with her partner Antony, and their two children, Max and Orla. After the birth of Orla, she was diagnosed with Postnatal Depression. It was during this time, she was completely shocked at how little support was available. Being such a creative soul, she used journaling and crafting to support her recovery. It helped her hugely, and this was when the idea of the Positive Planner was born.

Finn co-owns a beauty and hairdressing salon in Cambridge, where she lives with her husband Oli and their baby son Jasper-Fox. She has suffered with anxiety and depression for many years and after Jasper-Fox was born she connected with Ali, and they started to share ideas about the Positive Planner.

Their plan is for the Positive Planner movement to become a symbol of solidarity and acceptance for what is sometimes seen as a taboo subject.

In Nov 2018, they created the Positive Bullet Diary, and we at Holly & Co are very excited to see what this wonderful due do next as they continue their wonderful mission with Mental Health.
