The Anxiety Epidemic w/ Graham Davey
Are we living in an age of unprecedented anxiety, or has this always been a problem throughout history? In his book, "The Anxiety Epidemic" Graham Davey addresses many important questions about the role of anxiety in the modern world... What is it good for? What are the unique modern-day causes of our anxieties and stresses?  What turns normal everyday anxiety into the disabling disorders many of us experience such as phobias, social anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, pathological worrying and post-traumatic stress disorder? To truly conquer anxiety, we need to understand why it has established its prominent place in our modern world. I had the privilege of speaking with Graham and discussing it all in this episode of The No BS Anxiety Talk Show.

Hack Your Subconscious w/ Rani Maree
Most people struggle with the same issues over and over. They try many different solutions but still repeat the same patterns.  To say it's a bitch is an understatement!  By harnessing the power of the subconscious mind in hypnosis, Rani uncovers and remedies the real reason individuals are blocked, so they can move forward and transform their life. This chat is all about transforming your belief system by tapping into that deeper level of the mind where all doubt and negative shit sits...
