>  Infographics   >  THE PSYCHOLOGY OF COLOUR ?


There are four psychological primary colours – red, blue, yellow and green. They relate respectively to the body, the mind, the emotions and the essential balance.

While there is little scientific evidence that the various colour-based therapies can cure any particular mental health diseases, the psychology of colour has long been recognised as an important psychological factor in affecting peoples moods. Colours can evoke spontaneous emotional reactions that can counteract negative thoughts and stress.
