Your Herman

If you’ve found your way to this page then there’s a good chance you’re either holding your own Herman, or you’re just super nosey about what it's like to own one. Whichever it is - welcome!

So, who is this little fella you’ve bought or been given?

Well, first of all the idea of a Herman came from my podcast - The Silent Why - and you can find out more information about that here. But ultimately Hermans were created to help people feel less alone when they’re going through a hard time. 

Herman is the silent, supportive friend that we all need when we’re feeling blue, anxious, stressed, sad, or facing loss or grief. Here’s why:

  • He’s a great listener

  • He will keep you company and sit with you - whatever season you’re in

  • He doesn’t judge how you feel or how you grieve

  • He loves to just sit, whether that’s on your dressing table, your office desk, the sofa, by the bed (in the bed!), on the mantelpiece or curl up snuggly in your hand

  • He also loves to travel, doesn’t matter if it’s in a pocket, a handbag, or a car, take him along with you and he’ll be silently sending you courage whatever you’re going through

  • He’s made of 100% cotton yarn, which is actually super absorbent if you get a stray tear and find yourself without a tissue

  • He’s fearless, so he’s the perfect companion to take the hospital, or the funeral directors, or the places you need to go where you need a little moral support

  • He’s not afraid of emotions or harsh truths, so you don’t have to hold back what you say

  • He knows what you're going through and just wants to be with you.

However, like all of us there are a few things he's not into:

  • He’s not a huge fan of water and being spun around, so probably best to not put him in the washing machine, he does however, enjoy being dabbed with a wet cloth if he’s dirty

  • He doesn’t get on with very small children or pets, so he’d rather be out of reach of them. 

Herman's diary is always free for you, his only job is to make sure you always have company, however, you’re feeling, and whatever you're going through.
