Episode 18: Self-Worth - Seeking it Externally Sucks!!

Episode 18: Self-Worth - Seeking it Externally Sucks!!

In this Short Solo Episode I talk about WHY we need to change the socially conditioned (schools, teachers, parents take note) if we are to help us al feel better about WHO we are. 

I talk about our self- worth NOT being linked to academic achievements and promotions, body size or shape or the amount of money, companies, homes, cars or 'stuff' you have! 

Comparing ourselves to others as a way of gauging your own worth is never going to be helpful, because its a short lived way of either feeling better than or less than! 

Knowing your core values, knowing what lights you up and feels good and what drags you down and feels heavy is more important than putting others down to feel better than, or worse to feel MORE than. 

Always wanting to be right, to have the last word, to give opinions when they are NOT asked for is all about having LOW self-worth, which unfortunately pushes people away and leads to you feeling even less 'worthy'  

Looking inwards to WHO you want to be as person, and doing the stuff that feels good is a much more fun and effortless way of improving your self-worth. 

If you are struggling with anxiety, self worth, body confidence or are using controlling your weight or food and over exercising as a way to feel better about yourself, you'll know how exhausting and futile that is.  

I am here to help you break than desires and need is you feel you would like some help or just a chat to talk about how your feeling about yourself and your life right now, you can connect with me here:

Episode 17: SODA - What it means to be a Survivor of domestic abuse

Episode 17: SODA - What it means to be a Survivor of domestic abuse

In this episode..I talk with Samantha Billingham about domestic abuse 

How it is so easy to get sucked in by someone who is a serial abuser and knows exactly how to manipulate. 

Its a tale of ignorant employers and a system that makes it really hard to escape what is happening behind closed doors.  

Sam shares how she didn't even realise she was a victim of domestic abuse until she complete a questionnaire. 

This is an important listen for people of all ages, genders and races - abuse can happen to anyone, but NO-ONE is talking openly enough about this stuff as there is still the idea that the victim 'must have done something' to deserve it...

Sam busts that idea and many more. 

She also talks about how you can get help and her amazing work taking SODA workshops into companies to start helping them be more aware of the signs and offer help and support. 

Check out the links below for details and to connect with Sam

ALCOHOL AND FOOD - are often used to help the abused cope with the anxiety of getting through each day, sometimes victims will overeat to feel 'safe' or undereat in an attempt to 'disappear' 

Alcohol can often appear as a catalyst in the abuser and the abused may feel they need it to numb out, or make the pain go away. 

If either or both of the above are resonating with you, please do reach out to myself or to Sam.

Episode 15: Raw Chatter Talks S*X

Episode 15: Raw Chatter Talks S*X

In this episode I am chatting with Jessica Staniforth from SEXUCATION - bringing out into general conversation sex and the stuff that really does matter to all of us as human spiritual and sexual beings. 

Wether you feel comfortable saying the word or not we cannot get away from the fact that if it wasn't for Sex, YOU, me and everyone else on the planet wouldn't wouldn't be here, and yet,  it's still a taboo subject in so many homes. 

It's time we stepped into the 21st century and started to talk about what we love, what makes us feel good, connecting to our own wants and desires as individuals and connecting with intimacy and playfulness with our partners. 

Its time we stopped thinking about penetration when we think sex, it is so much more than that...

We talk out our thoughts around sex education and how its important that sex is talked about at home, not just left up to schools to educate our kids, as well as our collaboration and the creation of "Health & Pleasure"a brand new website coming soon

We will be launching with a Quiz:  "Discover Your Sizzle Factor"
