S4 EP17 The different stages of a woman
Today's show is a deep dive into all the different stages of womanhood.  I am joined by the amazing midwife and women's advocate, Sarah Denning. Sarah and I talk through it all,  emptying the dishwasher, farting, body image and how to be your own best friend.  Sarah, like myself, has worked closely with women for many years and she shares with us her wants for us all and the realties that we all manage every day. This show is a gentle, elegant listen, much like Sarah herself.

S4 EP 14 Stop saying sorry when you're not
This week we delve deep into the word "sorry"  What is your relationship with the word itself? Do you only use it when you mean it? or does it come flying out your mouth when it doesn't really need to?  My guest (Lissy Puig) and I explore how we overuse it and why we say it without even thinking.  What are we really apologising for?

S4 EP 12 Resilient Thinking
As we hit week 6 of lockdown, all our resources are wearing a bit thin, so what better to explore this week, than "resilience", what it is, why it's important and how the hell to have some!! I  am joined by resilience expert Danny Simmonds who is hilarious and candid in her approach.  Danny gives us some unforgettable analogy's to take away and (if that wasn't enough) I admit to some very personal, VERY relatable thought processes, which were totally unhelpful and the absolute opposite of resilient!  Thank goodness Danny came on the show today to sort my head out as I'm not sure my family could take much more of me :)

That is why I brought in the heavyweight today to help you and me shut this voice up! Jo Kaye is a mindfulness expert and teacher and she gives us tools and practices to stop this horrid voice
