116. Katherine Jansen-Byrkit: Grounded Optimism: On Wakefulness, Healing and Worth
In this episode, we're joined by Katherine Jansen-Byrkit, MPH, LPC. Katherine received her Master’s in Public Health from the University of Washington in 1992 and spent over a decade in Public Health managing violence prevention and teen health programs. But over time, she experienced an inner stirring. What ensued was a process of reflection, curiosity and ultimately trust as she dove into her current career as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Following in the footsteps of her father, who was also a therapist, she graduated in 2004 from Lewis and Clark College and has now enjoyed over 15 years in private practice offering not only holistic psychotherapy but retreats and workshops as well. Last year, Katherine published her first book, River to Ocean: Living in the Flow of Wakefulness. Her book reflects the human voyage of finding your way to an awakened self. As with a river that traverses steep mountains and winding valleys, our inner and outer worlds can be encumbered by a lack of connection to ourselves, old beliefs, an anxious mind, preoccupation with death, or compromised relationships to others. Each and all of these can interfere with living our most authentic and loving life. In River to Ocean, Katherine explores nine aspects of wakefulness, offering insights, practices, and her own and other's inspirational stories from the field. In this episode, we explore: wakefulness feeling enough understanding and tuning into our emotions healing from trauma introversion vs. social anxiety death and dying and loads more.

107: Michael Apostol: Reflections on Moral Psychology and Our Beliefs
In this episode, we're joined by Michael Apostol. Prior to beginning his undergraduate studies, Michael decided that he wanted to pursue a career in therapy, and realized that he needed to both major in psychology and gain research experience while completing his degree. Because of his interests in therapy, he focused on taking clinical psychology coursework and familiarizing himself with clinical practice. After reflecting on his clinical internship and coursework, he realized that clinical practice wasn't for him. Through this process, however, Michael discovered something that he truly loved: research. From there, he dived into social, cognitive, and clinical research – he explored a range of topics including fighting in professional hockey, moral psychology, the psychology of religion, and the Autism Spectrum Disorder. Michael's research interests are in moral psychology, judgments, decision-making, and reasoning. He wants to focus on moral judgments and decision-making because he thinks that by understanding why and how people decide that some things are right while others are wrong is the key to reducing unnecessary suffering, eliminating prejudice, and promoting human well-being. Michael's long-term goal is an academic career where he hopes to conduct research, teach, and contribute to a university community. For now, his goal is to work in a research setting before applying to PhD programs in social or cognitive psychology. In this episode, we explore: psychology academic research  autism moral psychology  beliefs vs knowledge street epistomology and loads more.

84. Michelle Myrick: Turning on Your Inner Light: Living a Life that Excites You
In this episode, we're joined by singer, songwriter, artist and coach Michelle Myrick. Michelle was born and raised at Cape Pine Lighthouse in Newfoundland, Canada and currently lives in Norway. She has been a  musician for the majority of her life, but when she took up painting a few years ago, everything seemed to fall into place. Painting opened a new door of self-discovery – a door that led to greater awareness of how unresolved trauma and self-doubt had been holding her back. Through visual art, she began to see the hidden gifts within her experiences, and the deeper meaning they held for her life. In 2018, Michelle brought her message to audiences in her powerful show, “The Song Series” – a live performance where she presents her original songs, the paintings she created based upon them, and the stories and experiences behind them – a show she still performs internationally. Inspired by the relatable lessons within the “Song Series”, audiences asked for more. So, in August 2019, she released her first book, a memoir: “Stepping Stones – From Self-doubt to Self-belief: Finding Meaning and Purpose for your Life” as well as a full-length recording of original music, “Songs from the Song Series”. The story doesn’t end there. In fact, it’s the beginning of another new chapter. This year, Michelle achieved certification as a life coach, and launched her first coaching program “Be the Lighthouse”. In this episode, we explore: Creativity Learning to trust yourself Finding your passion  and loads more.

68. Shiggi Pakter: On Suicide Bereavement
*Trigger Warning* - Mention of means of suicide In this episode, we're joined again by Shiggi Pakter, Audio Content Producer & DJ, who shares with us her experience of suicide bereavement - losing her Mum to suicide. Shiggi was born and raised in Kenya, spending half her life there and the rest across a few places in the world with the UK being a close second. She was carted off to boarding school at the age of 14 and deciding the UK would be home, she's stumbled through various difficulties and always found a way to self-correct and keep on moving forwards. The 9-5 didn't sit well with Shiggi and she's been creating her own path since leaving studies at Brunel University in 2004. A few jobs (including manager at London 2012). business partnerships and developing her own Performance DJ "gig" later, she's back to focusing on what she loves around demystifying the world of audio for other entrepreneurial coaches, speakers and authors.  In the midst of that, she's also self-navigating a path back to her "true north" after her mother completed suicide by a gun to the head in 2019. She is not shy to share the story of the "other-side" the bereaved must endure and simply don't have a field manual to help them through.  "If my words and story can help just one other person who has to go through a multi-continental "mission" like mine, my work is done." Shiggi is very open and shares her raw, honest experience. From the practicalities of dealing with a suicide to the emotions and cultural traditions and beliefs we dive deep into her story. We also discuss the importance of a support network, the sonic boom of grief and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (I'm now a fan too!)

66. William Graper: Styling your Life
In this episode, we're joined by Life and Style Coach and Celebrity Fashion Stylist William Graper. We often hear that a beautiful life starts from within... but that’s only half true.  As human beings, we are subject to the material world which inevitably shapes who we are— and how we feel about ourselves.  By looking outside and working our way in, we can effect change in a more tangible, practical way. Blending fashion and psychology, William Graper brings a unique perspective to personal growth and mental health.  Everyday people, celebrities, CEOs, pro athletes and LGBTQ+ youth— clients from all walks of life— have benefitted from his creative and therapeutic approach. Currently completing his Masters in Psychology at Pepperdine University, William takes an active-directive approach to coaching, rooted in philosophically and empirically-based principles.  Having styled people’s outsides for over a decade, he looks forward to helping you style your life— in a more lasting and meaningful way. William shares with us his move from fashion to coaching, what he's learnt about style and our inner lives and insecurities from his time as a stylist and his thoughts on how we can style our own life and how our material possessions can provide us with valuable information about ourselves.  You can connect with William on Twitter or via his website.
