The show follows Nikau as he struggles to find healing, growth and self acceptance in the wake of a devastating breakup. Each mini-episode delves into a new practice or program in Nikau’s sometimes-reluctant journey of personal, spiritual, physical and psychological self-improvement.
The world of Self Help is full of humour and pathos, warmth and humanity, surrealism and ennui — expertly crafted by writers and co-creators Kris Hermansson and Grace Palmer, and directed by Michelle Ang and Rawiri Jobe.
