Embracing Menopause with Anita Murphy
Embracing Menopause with Anita Murphy
Anita enlightens us with her insights into her own menopausal journey during which she realised there was little support & understanding out there for women at the time. As a consequence of that, together with two other colleagues, she set up a workshop tailored specifically for women called ‘Embracing Menopause’. During our conversation she discusses the physiological impact of menopausal symptoms including brain fog and social anxiety, while sharing simple lifestyle choices that can help us ease them. She also discusses the importance of being open and honest about our symptoms in order to create a societal shift and a new vision of menopause as a time of immense personal growth and fulfilment. ...... Find out about the ‘Embracing Menopause’ workshops at: https://www.soulmoves.ie/events-new (in-person events in an intimate group setting held in Galway, West of Ireland) Next workshop coming up on Sunday 29th January 2023 ...... Anita’s suggestions to check out: https://www.wellnesswarrior.ie https://www.redschool.net/podcast ...... Biography Anita Murphy is a Wellness Coach and a Professional Photographer. In her mid 40s she experienced severe mental health issues, only to discover three years later that her symptoms were linked to the onset of peri-menopause. Her continuing challenges, coupled with the lack of information and awareness in the public domain and among some GPs, has lead her to want to create more awareness and support in our communities and workplaces to empower menopausal women through this transition. She completed the “Workplace Wellness Post Grad” in NUIG (National University of Galway Ireland) in 2021. Her final project was a program to support menopausal women in the workplace. She has co created the “Embracing Menopause” workshop with her colleagues Laragh Cunningham & Sarah Thornton and they have just recently successfully completed their first in person workshop. ..................

A Love Affair with Homeopathy - Jill in conversation with Dr Jayne Marquis
A Love Affair with Homeopathy - Jill in conversation with Dr Jayne Marquis
Dr Jayne Marquis returns to Lady Time where this time we discuss one of her greatest passion’s  -  homeopathy – which also happens to be one of Jill’s favourite healing modalities. Find out about what inspired her to become a homeopath, how it works and just how deeply it can heal not only on the physical level but also the mental and emotional by going deeply into the cellular level. Homeopathy is a truly magnificent form of natural healing so enjoy the ease with which Jayne conveys both the beauty and the complexity of it. ......... You can find out more about Jayne's work including her INpowered podcast & her book 'Jayne's INpowered Handbook: Featuring homeopathic remedies and cell salts for everyday use' at the following link:- INpoweredhealth.com ......... Biog:- Dr. Jayne Marquis is a Naturopathic Doctor and a Homeopath. She achieved her diploma at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, to become a Naturopathic Doctor, and shortly after The Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine, to become a homeopath. In becoming an ND she studied Chinese medicine, Acupuncture, Botanical Medicine, Massage, Nutrition, Homeopathy and Orthomolecular Medicine. She fell in love with homeopathy, a true mind-body medicine, that takes not only physical symptoms but also mental and emotional symptoms into consideration, and so continued to become the best homeopath she could be. Jayne’s desire to awaken people to their own inner power and ability to find their true health resulted in her international podcast “INpowered Mind, INpowered Health”. There she interviews people from around the world who share their perspectives and expertise on health and empowerment. Everyone can benefit from taking natural remedies and understanding them better. So she has created a book to empower! In her helpful handbook, she makes homeopathic remedies easy to use for the whole family. She guides you to an understanding of the 12 Cell Salts and has chosen 17 homeopathic remedies that are vital to anyone’s home medicine cupboard or traveling kit. ..................

Menopause or Adrenopause? - Jill in conversation with Magic Barclay
Menopause or Adrenopause? - Jill in conversation with Magic Barclay
The road to good health was a long & winding one for Magic so during our conversation she wound the clock back to her 20s when life was .... just a little bit wild! Over the course of a decade or so she had two children, went from anorexic to morbidly obese, suffered diabetes, lyme disease, fourth stage cancer & went through a divorce. At one point she had recovered her health fully with diet & exercise, even opening her own gym, but she became sick again. This led her to study very deeply the causative factors of illness. And just when she had recovered her health to a large degree menopause arrived! This was a conversation that really had to start at the beginning so we could fully grasp the incredible knowledge Magic has of the body, it’s systems, the immune system, how mould toxicity plays a major role in ill health and her unique take on what happens at menopause, which she terms ‘adrenopause’ ... something that happens to both women & men she says. One could only describe Magic as a veritable detective when it comes to illness & dis-ease; root causes would have a hard time hiding from her eagle eye! ...... Magic works online with clients anywhere in the world and you can contact her through the following:- https://www.facebook.com/wholisticnaturalhealthaustralia https://www.instagram.com/wholisticnaturalhealth https://www.wholisticnaturalhealth.com.au ...... Wholistic Natural Health Australia is a small group of Wholistic Health Practitioners who work through various Natural Health modalities from around the globe. It was established in 2017 by lead practitioner Magic Barclay. She is Best Selling Author of ‘Gut Recovery and Whole Foods’ and ‘Stop Being Fat: Love Yourself Skinny’ and was voted Nett Magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Month (2015). She is a mould toxicity master - mould is the most prolific survivor amongst organisms, it suppresses your immune system in ways you can’t even imagine. She is an Innate Immunity and Functional Health Solutions advanced practitioner - looking at root cause, finding the most natural source for supplementation and working with the 5 immune types - yes 5!! Which one are you? Are you treating your health issues the way YOUR immune type requires? She also specializes in the PNEI (Psycho Neuro Endo Immunology) of Trauma, and teaches it to other practitioners too. .......

Grannies Don’t Go on Stage! – Jill in conversation with Veronica Ebanks
Grannies Don’t Go on Stage! – Jill in conversation with Veronica Ebanks
Veronica often refers to herself as a Grandma (and she is to 11 grandchildren) but that is hard to believe because she is so young and vibrant and full of curiosity! Difficult early beginnings running into early adult life, meant she had to overcome many obstacles which wasn’t easy by any stretch but her indomitable Spirit kept her going. Even with a successful career in Science & Education - come midlife she still suffered from no confidence and low self esteem. When she found herself made redundant at midlife, it turned out to be the ultimate catalyst, kickstarting an entirely new career and changing the course of her life. A wellspring of new talents broke free and soon she was doing things she thought she’d never do, such as going on stage to perform spoken word, among many other things. If you ever thought you couldn’t possibly do something new, then take a listen to Veronica as she would simply inspire anyone to just go for it! .......... Biog Veronica is an Afro-Caribbean from Jamaica raised in London, married for 40 years, four sons and 11 grandchildren. A science graduate with Science and Education professional work history, who after redundancy created a career as an Independent Safeguarding Consultant/Trainer and Restorative Justice Practitioner. An entrepreneur and micro business owner of Verelba Mind & Body, providing artisanal skincare, wellbeing items and holistic therapy (Federation of Holistic Therapists registered). A published writer and co-author, performance artist, storyteller, and speaker, sharing work on radio, online and with theatre appearances. Has a love for people, nature, arts, crochet, gardening, travelling and vintage fashion. ......

Calling Irish women to join research group on Menopause. Louise Enright is doing her MSC in Health Psychology and looking for women to join her small research groups.
Interview with Louise Enright.  Louise is conducting research for her Masters in Health Psychology and she is currently looking for women interested in joining her research groups. If you are interested in participating in her research group you can contact Louise by email Enright-L@ulster.ac.uk Louise Enright, from Clare and living in Dublin for the past six years. Pregnant with her first baby that is due in August and will be just shy of 41 when the baby arrives. An imminent move back to Clare for the maternity period is on the cards due to the ever-increasing costs of renting/buying in Dublin. One of seven children and grew up on a small farm, mother reared them, and Dad worked a full-time job. Louise went the ‘unconventional’ route to many, in that she didn’t follow the University route after school and instead took the first plane out of the Isle and spent most of her 20’s living abroad in various spots across the globe and pondering over what was her calling. She has spent the most part of her 30’s in education in a part-time capacity while working full-time also. She is just finishing up her Master of Science in Health Psychology and working in the School of Pharmacy RCSI, and as a Clinical Support Specialist for a company that sources and supplies medicinal products that run short in the Irish Market into Irish Hospitals.   In  this interview we discuss Louise's life so far, her studies her work and her research with menopause.  I hope you enjoy and please contact Louise by email if you are interested in participating in her research groups, it is Irish based, you can be a woman of any stage in life; pre menopausal, peri menopausal, menopausal, post menopausal.  Thank you. ..................

Interview with Barbara McAteer, a Natural Skin Care specialist, Holistic Therapist, Entrepreneur and owner of Josie's Botanicals
Interview with Barbara McAteer, a Natural Skin Care specialist, Holistic Therapist, Entrepreneur and owner of Josie's Botanicals
Josie's Botanicals is a dream realised, all the things Barbara loves together. She has always felt her best in nature, inspired by the positive effects of plants and their ability to heal. As a holistic therapist, she knows firsthand the healing power of pure and natural ingredients to reduce the effects of stress and pollution on both body and mind. Growing up in a family of 11 children, Barbara's mother Josie had a cure for whatever ailed you; she soothed allergies, breakouts, scars and burns with natural remedies passed down through generations of wise and knowledgeable women. Barbara shares her passion for natural health with her siblings, using their heritage to help people restore their skin health. As a teacher and practitioner of holistic therapies, specialist in natural facials and facial rejuvenation, aromatherapist, reflexologist, massage therapist, and a nutritional therapist; Barbara sees how synthetic chemicals can disrupt the delicate balance of hormones in the body. Over the years, Barbara found it impossible to source products that used 100% pure and natural ingredients to use on sensitive or compromised skin. Eventually drawing on her heritage, she blended the purest organic active ingredients and essential oils to create precise formulations to meet everyday skin concerns. She tested these formulations on friends and family and their symptoms markedly improved. Barbara's inner circle loved the products so much, that they wanted to buy them. Josie's Botanicals is born out of a passion for natural healing with a focus always on integrity; the packaging is recycled or recyclable, and their products are tested on humans, not animals. Sustainable production with 100% plant-based ingredients designed for maximum results—natural skincare you can trust, with results you will love. Check out her website www.josiesbotanicals.com     insta : Josiesbotanicals FB: Josies botanicals Bonus gift on offer from Barbara, have a listen to the podcast to avail of the offer. ..................

A Beyond Midlife Conversation with Chikae Ishikawa
A Beyond Midlife Conversation with Chikae Ishikawa
Every so often we bring you a conversation about someone’s life & their experiences. This time I chatted with Chikae who spent many years on the stage – a natural singer & dancer and with a father in the business, it was sort of inevitable. Upon leaving Japan in the mid 70s at the tender age of 19yrs and arriving in Los Angeles, she knew immediately she’d come home. She soon realised her childhood dream of appearing in American musicals on Broadway. That’s not all though, for Chikae is a deeply Spiritual woman with an innate ability to both manifest her dreams and connect to her guides, who were truly - and some would say miraculously - there for her when she needed them most. And last but by no means least – she has an incredible affinity with dolphins – her time spent with them will leave you in awe and put a smile on your face! Enjoy! Jill x .......... Chikae is retired now and enjoys organic gardening, healthy cooking, walking neighbourhood dogs with her own dog and connecting with freedom-loving conscious people. ..................

The Crone: Debunking the Myths - Jill chats with Martha Gelnaw
The Crone: Debunking the Myths - Jill chats with Martha Gelnaw
I invited Martha, a font of wisdom, back to Lady Time to debunk those old and terrible myths about the Crone. I remember in my younger years thinking of her as a horrible wizened old woman, not very nice and not something I ever wanted to become. That, however, is something the Crone is definitely not, and like much of a lot of history, the truth has been skewed and altered around her too. In reality the Crone is something to aspire to, as women move through mid life, menopause and beyond. Join me as Martha does a little bit of revisionism on the history of the Crone!  Jill x ..... Martha works with individuals as well as groups and you can contact her at the following: www.presence-impact.com Email: martha@presence-impact.com ..... Links and notes Martha mentioned during our conversation:- 1. Martha highly recommends the following book: Sand Talk: How Indigenous Wisdom Will Save the World by Tyson Yunkaporta “We say seminal work. Seminal doesn’t sound like the right word to describe a female’s work. Ovarian? Yet, women have always kept the seeds, chosen the seeds. Sown the seeds .Seminal. Her work is seminal.”  Tyson Yunkaporta And here, Tyson consults a grandmother elder, Mumma Doris Shillingsworth for some useful knowledge:- https://presence-impact.com/2020/10/12/indigenous-knowledge-can-save-the-world-weve-got-it-backwards/ 2. She also recommends taking this 2-day online workshop for women with Nessa Gomes called Vocal Odyssey:- www.vocalodyssey.com 3. She also suggested listening to ‘The Sacred Feminine Forgives the Sacred Masculine’ - a podcast with Pat McCabe  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-mythic-masculine/id1487709630?i=1000464591739 ..................

In conversation with Ciara Malone who reckons she caught the menopause from her friend.
Carole interviews Ciara Malone.  Ciara is a conceptual artist, photographer, videographer, musician and film-maker. Ciara comes from Cahir in Co. Tipperary and has made the Burren and  Co. Clare her home now.  From a very early age, she knew she was different. She couldn’t read until she was twelve years of age and she found herself living in a different visual world that seems in ways, parallel to that of her peers. She got her first camera at age 7. She realizes now how that camera was an important tool, helping her to communicate how the world was reflected back at her, and her experience of it. Once in her young hands, her life long trajectory was set in motion.  In her midlife Ciara was diagnosed with ADHD.  Website: ciaramalone.com email: shootmegood@gmail.com Ciara has exhibited in old public buildings, abandoned shops, or anywhere that she thinks the everyday person can experience my work. Democratising her art is an important element in my work, allowing it have a further reach than the conventional artworld 'gallery' model.   With her formative years, living over a pub, her life seemed a movie set, full of characters and stories.  She is a passionate visual storyteller, using her camera she brings focus to individuals and spaces, observing and teasing out meaning like she once did as a child. ..................

'GRISTLE' with Nicole Rourke - A Read-Through of her Spoken Word Piece Inspired by Attitudes Toward Women Without Children
Gristle is about that moment you've had enough - enough of someone else narrating your story, enough of being polite so as not to offend, enough of not telling your truth. It's about going the journey of biting down deep into that truth, the pain and ugliness of it, the bits that get stuck in your teeth, the gristle of your story and maybe in that way, starting to let go. ....... Nicole does a read through of her 12 minute spoken word piece inspired by attitudes toward women without children, the presumptions of others and that particular day when you've had enough!  ...... We had a wonderful conversation with her and our live audience afterward. Enjoy! ......

Seamless moves; in conversation with Maura Rooney, a founding member of Seamless Moves.
Maura set up a bespoke business Seamless Moves to help elderly people.  Seamless Moves are there to support the elderly with options to downsize, age in place, find the most suitable nursing home and organise their affairs. Maura worked in Banking / accounting for years until she took 10 years at home to raise the kids. Maura missed working life and the purpose it gave but knew she didn’t want to get back into the corporate world. Maura felt the best opportunity to get the work life balance was to start something herself although the prospect was a bit daunting. She Stumbled upon an idea when supporting an elderly neighbour who had no family but had to after a fall move into a nursing home and sell up the family home. The concept of seamless moves was born. Couple of twists and turns to get it up and running but only probably happened because a friend suggested she would collaborate with her.  www.Seamlessmoves.ie ........

To Find One’s Voice – Jill in conversation with Martha Gelnaw
To Find One’s Voice – Jill in conversation with Martha Gelnaw
Martha grew up in New Jersey in a suburb of New York City, the eldest of six girls in a Catholic family. For many years she says she was a talker but not a communicator – anxiety made her talk a lot .... ‘children should be seen and not heard’ is something she heard very often growing up in her household. And whilst she was an exuberant, energetic and life loving individual, life experience began to chip away at her edges until at one point, when her children were still very young, she literally lost her voice. She takes us through the journey of how she found her voice again around about midlife and how in turn she now helps others find theirs again too. ....... Martha works with individuals as well as groups and you can contact her at the following: www.presence-impact.com Email: martha@presence-impact.com ........

Seeking the Past & Finding Myself - Jill in conversation with Sam Thiara
Seeking the Past & Finding Myself - Jill in conversation with Sam Thiara
Sam had a two-fold story to share with Lady Time, in his early forties he had a yearning to find out more about his ancestral roots as a British-born Canadian of Indian descent ‘before the thread would be lost forever in the fabric of India’ as he so eloquently put it. Then a few shorts years later he had a pivotal decision to make in his life – stay in his very comfortable pensionable corporate job or leave and jump into the unknown? He chose the latter. In our conversation he discusses how he navigated that decision when he found himself standing on a precipice with comfort behind him and uncertainty waiting over the edge. Both stories intertwine in a way, where Sam first found a sense of belonging and discovered more of who he was and later realised that the corporate world was no longer a good fit. Sam authored a book called 'Lost and Found: Seeking the Past and Finding Myself' about the journey seeking his roots. He also offers affordable coaching for those starting out or rethinking their career.

Getting the Balance Right - Jill chats with Heather Zeitzwolfe
Feeling restricted in her job by the time she arrived at midlife, Heather decided it was time for a change. At the time she did not consider herself a risk taker but the need for change was strong and so, armed with new ideas and a degree in accountancy, she set herself up as a CPA & Profitability Coach. Heather now works with women who want to change tack in midlife and move into business. She developed a shame-free approach to working with women as she has found that generally speaking, they are more inclined to be more hesitant to talk about money and have a tendency also to price too low for their services. Join us for an engaging discussion with this very vibrant and colourful lady! Biography Heather is a CPA and Profitability Coach who helps her clients take control of their finances. She's the host of the ‘Get the Balance Right’ podcast. Heather has a strong passion for veganism, standing up for civil rights, and saving the environment.

Feeling Adrift in an Early Menopause - Jill chats with Lisa Berry
Lisa felt adrift when an early menopause made itself known in her life at the age of only 41. In our conversation she shared what a lonely place it was to be in, that came with a feeling of disempowerment. The turning point for her came whilst sharing her story in a women’s circle, something she wasn’t keen on doing at the time but later came to know the absolute value of sharing your story with others. In the circle she met a woman called Diane Danzebrink author of ‘Make Menopause Matter’ and that opened up a whole new vista of understanding for her. She was more than happy to share her story again here on Lady Time.

We take a stroll down memory lane where a significant change in his early adult life pivoted him onto the path toward the thing that was to become his true calling. Later still, the 2008 financial crash catapulted yet another pivot that coincided with his arrival at midlife and a deeper delve into his creative life.

If you haven’t listened to the first part of this incredible conversation with Allison, then please go listen now … it will be worth it! Allison is a former elite ski racer & coach and present-day artist, writer & investigative journalist. In the first half of our conversation she shared what it was like growing up in America during the 1950s, 60s & 70s. In this second half she continues her life-story where she became an investigative journalist at the age of 59 and later picks up on her much earlier life (touched on briefly in part one) and of the early childhood trauma she suffered which coloured much of the rest of her life; some of which hindered her greatly and some of which helped her equally as greatly. At a later stage she began a deep healing process which continues to this day. Join us for Allison’s thoughtful articulation of the complexity of the world we live in.

Allison experienced all of this in her younger life alongside the gruelling training required to become an athlete at the top of her game whilst still only a teenager.

Age Gives You a New Lens - Jill interviews Anthony Callanan
Born in England of Irish parents, Anthony grew up in Brixton, South London during the 70s & 80s. He had many stories to share which he does with great flair & humour such as the wonderful friendship he had with Doll his 70yr old neighbour when he was just 5 yrs old and whose influence was to have far reaching affects on his life. What it was like growing up as an immigrant which brought its own challenges in trying to balance between two cultures & finding his identity within that. His love and flair for food & cooking, his early interest in politics and how his Beloved dog helped him make the decision to become vegan and subsequently open his now flourishing delicatessen & bakery. And we did of course cover Anthony's midlife journey too where age he says, has given him a new lens.

In conversation with award winning publisher, documentary maker, artist Vincent Hyland on his amazing environmental work, his life and overcoming trauma
I loved interviewing Vinny.  He is on of the most generous and bravest people I know.  Vincent Hyland is a multi award winning publisher (Wild Ireland), outdoor environmental educator, wildlife documentary film maker, artist and musician. His documentary collaborations and TV appearances include working with the BBC natural history unit and RTE - Ireland's national TV station. He is a regular guest presenter discussing all things wildlife on RTE's flagship afternoon show the Today Show. His underwater wildlife films have taken him to places such as Antarctica where he led an expedition bringing the first all Irish group to the white continent in honour of the then unknown Antarctic hero Tom Crean and Galapagos to film whale sharks and its endemic wildlife. Vincent's love of technology saw him being an early adopter of digital publishing in the mid 1980s and he spent the emote  decade of the 1990s working at Microsoft. Vincent was the creator of the European Broadcasting prize winner 'Nestwatch'. This live stream followed the lives of a nesting pair of birds and was broadcast on the Internet in the years 2000 and 2001. It was the very 1st live stream of a wildlife event in Europe. As a family, Vincent, together with his partner Mo and son Neil won the national Heritage Week Award for County Kerry in 2020 for their online series 'Young Explorer'. They also appeared on RTÉ TV's Nationwide combining Mo's love of foraging and cooking with local ingredients and their coastal outdoor eco exploits. Vincent was a founder member of the original Kerry Dark Sky Group that established the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve and achieved gold tier status from the International Dark Sky Association (IDA)  for the quality of its night skies and is now a favourite amongst visitors to the area interested in astronomy. His latest collaboration was to work with the world class Irish Chamber Orchestra when he created Fiadh's Voyage - a poetic film that follwed a seabird as it journeyed around its home in the Atlantic ocean. Set to Felix Mendelson's 'Fingals Cave' and performed by the Irish Chamber Orchestra this was a huge online success. Vincent developed an outdoor ecology business at Derrynane where he takes parents and their children into the great outdoors. Together with Parknasilla resort Vincent created their hugely successful eco discovery walk. This immersive journey  takes guests on a trek through the coastal expanses of the resort giving them insights into coastal biodiversity, health and wellness and is peppered with folklore and local maritime history. Finding the creatures of the shoreline is a particular highlight. Further information www.vincenthylandartist.com, instagram; wildderrynane

Those Wrinkles like Pain Will Not Be Denied (Part 2of2) – Jill interviews Nicole Rourke
Continuing my conversation with Nicole she discusses the importance of building resilience from a young age, as life will always throw curve balls your way. About not giving advice and of taking your own counsel. We also talk at length about her work in a women’s prison in Tel Aviv in Israel and in Wheatfield prison for men. We top if all off with her passion for tango and how her trip to Argentina inspired the play she wrote & performed called Baggage (discussed in Part 1). (If you missed Part 1 see our previous episode to listen back).

Those Wrinkles like Pain Will Not Be Denied (Part1of2)– Jill interviews Nicole Rourke
Nicole knows how to tell a story, she knows how to write one too and she also knows how to perform one. In this first part of our long conversation she describes how middle age somehow arrived unannounced into her life bringing with it the ending of a long relationship, the pain of not having children, society’s (and in particular women’s) attitude to women without children , the process of writing and being able to use that ability to help dig her out of her own repetitive narrative at times. Arriving at 50 last year Nicole had found much to write about in the lead up… in particular Gristle and Baggage, two pieces she wrote and performed which are very much centred in the space her characters found themselves in at middle age. I think you will enjoy Nicole’s engaging & refreshing take on things at this the middle stage. (Coming up in Part 2 Nicole talks about the building of resilience from the curve balls life threw her way, working in both men and women’s prisons & her passion for tango).

Like many growing up in the midst of a conflict it coloured her outlook and in her case career choices - she first became a lawyer and later moved into advocacy taking an interest in the area of elders in particular. She shares her experience of midlife especially those things that affect of lot of people at this time such as growing children and aging parents.  This conversation will help trigger long term thinking about how we might plan for our own later lives, as well as thinking about approaching those sometimes difficult conversations with aging parents. Later in our conversation Emer discusses what can practically be done such as family decisions, financial, legal & medical matters. As she says, the sooner we have those conversations the better and easier it will be in the long run.  You can find out more about Emer at the following:- Website: www.emerlavineldercare.ie  Email:  info@emerlavineldercare.ie  FB: https://www.facebook.com/emerlavineldercare Linked In: https://ie.linkedin.com/in/emerlavin

Midlife and more, today's conversation Carole talks to trauma expert Susanna Sweeney.
In this episode Carole talks to trauma expert Susanna Sweeney about her midlife experience, what is was like growing up in East Berlin and about her different techniques she uses to help people with trauma in a shorter time than talk therapies. Susanna Sweeney has been helping people change their lives for over 25 years. She is a Sensorimotor Psychotherapist, also trained in EMDR and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. More recently, she has added Havening Techniques to her toolbox. She helps people overcome the effects of all kinds of trauma right down to the more difficult to spot but pervasive effects of developmental (childhood) trauma in ultra short term therapy programmes. Any frustrations in life such as feeling unfulfilled in business and life, or symptoms such as anxious feelings, or low mood, even chronic pain usually link back to some event that has been traumatically encoded by the brain. Susanna sees it as her mission to help her clients overcome these symptoms and frustrations so they can increase their enjoyment levels in life and their earning potential in business. Having fallen in love with Havening Techniques, she now also trains people professionals and those to be in this wonderful modality that’s already actively changing the face of the therapy, healing and coaching space. For those interested in Susanna's short term therapy programme looking to resolve issues like anxiety, low mood, chronic pain or migraines, PTSD, you can look me up here and get an idea of my thinking on these issues:www.onlinehypnotherapyclinic.com/about-me.html For people professionals such as holistic practitioner, coaches, therapists and counsellors- I am a trainer of the neuroscience based Havening Techniques and I love spreading knowledge of one of the most exciting modalities in the therapy world today- I do regular free “masterclasses” which are an opportunity to get to know this groundbreaking work- to avail of those you can follow my personal profile on FB or look up  www.onlinehypnotherapyclinic.com/havening-techniques-introduction.html

A Story to be Told - Jill interviews Rab Fulton
Rab is my next door neighbour! We've had many's a chat across the fence (or wall in our case) but this time we put some structure on it and saved it for Lady Time. I hope you enjoy Rab's take on toxic masculinity, a subject he truly considers especially as a father of two boys, along with an interesting take on his journey through writing and the struggle to make an income from it. However, despite that and having reached middle age, a time when  artists often give up (or sometimes have no choice) his desire to create is as strong as ever, it's something he simply must do.  You can follow Rab's work at the following links:- https://rabfultonstories.weebly.com/ https://rabful.podbean.com/ https://www.mixcloud.com/rabfulton/

A Woman in Film - Jill interviews Rebecca O'Flanagan
One of six girls Rebecca grew up amidst a lively & cultured family where dinner table conversations were always interesting and you had better have something to say! So it was no surprise she ended up in the storytelling arena as a film producer, not necessarily an easy career to have chosen and certainly not for women in the time she started out but this never phased Rebecca, in fact it never occurred to her she couldn’t do it. She tells us of that experience and of another more poignant one trying to become pregnant in the aftermath of overcoming ovarian cancer in her late 20s. Join us for an engaging conversation with Rebecca looking back over her life from the vantage point of midlife.

James Finney hails from the UK, is one of the 40 odd million outside of Ireland with Irish roots and is also our third man to share a cuppa on Lady Time. We are very lucky to have him ... and you’ll find out why when you listen in. He has a lot to share while taking us on a colourful journey through his midlife. He tells us of the bouts of depression he has lived through over the past 25 years and of being a father to a child with life challenges. Although he is not one (but easily could’ve been) James encompasses the essence of a comedian with a core that speaks volumes about the pain of the human condition yet somehow manages to deliver it all with humour… even in the face of death.

'Give me the wild children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes'. Carole interviews Chris Molloy
A quote from Nicolette Sowder describes Chris Molloy to me 'Give me the wild children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes',  Chris describes herself as having been a wild child, she became a mother while she was still at school. Having a child  so young presented many challenges that Chris overcame, she  went to college and started work in the financial sector and then in recruitment and she got married and had more children.  Chris loved going to yoga classes and a few years ago she trained as a yoga teacher and she now has a very successful teaching practice using her skills and time in the business sector to help her with her teaching practice.  Chris teaches online and when there are no covid restrictions she loves to teach outdoors in parks, in studios, in companies and in colleges.  She also is involved in a new program with the national maternity hospital for young teenage mothers.
