'To demonstrate the dramatic effect of red, it takes 2/100ths of a second to register red yet 25/100ths of a second to register 3 words of this text' June McLeod
Colour Psychology is the study of the effect that colours have on human behaviour, particularly the natural instinctive feelings that each colour evokes. Colour preference reveals how each colour encourages an emotional, mental and physical response in people.
Red for example will create feelings of warmth, movement, ambition, courage and sometimes fear despondency and anger.
Red may bring to mind sayings that have been passed down through the ages such as 'it was like holding up a red rag to a bull'.
Cultures from around the world may differ in their use of colour psychology meaning and symbolism, for example in South Asian culture it is common to see brides wearing red where as in Western culture a bride traditionally wears white.
Caution is highlighted by this simple example,International colour psychology knowledge must be understood and traditions respected if a colour psychologist is to work efficiently and flawlessly overseas or for an overseas client.Colour Psychology is a vast and complex subject that takes many years of hands on experience gathering and absorbing sufficient colour psychology understanding and knowledge to provide a colour psychology consultancy that is fit for purpose.
Just as the learner drivers true learning begins when they have passed their test and are deemed safe to go out onto the road,a colour psychologist will spend 2-3 years study then further years as an apprentice,learning on the road, before they are deemed qualified to offer Colour Psychology consultancy to business.

Colour Therapy works on the principle that we are in need of light and colour to stay balanced and in good health. Natural daylight contains all the colours of the spectrum that our energy centres need in order to stay well physically, emotionally, mentally and some say spiritually.
It is essential we spend at least an hour a day preferably in sun light whatever the weather. We absorb light and the coloured rays through our eyes and skin. So when you are walking or sitting outdoors, expose your skin,roll your sleeves up if weather permits.
Our busy lifestyles today mean we spend long hours working and living indoors. Use your time wisely, at lunch time step outside for a brisk walk in the fresh air and daylight.
The power of colour and its positive influence on our health and lives cannot be underestimated. 'I stand in awe at the simplicity yet transformational ability of colour'. An incredible tool is at our finger tips.
