In this episode I speak to Clinical Psychologist Dr. Sophie Mort, who speaks to me about emotions, the purpose of them, the importance of paying attention to them and also the harm in neglecting them.  Sophie's book is called "A Manual for Being Human". Her book explores all aspects of life, from birth to where you are right now, giving us an entire foundation of understanding the human experience.

Dr Mike Banna on Behaviour Change and Mental Health

Dr Mike Banna on Behaviour Change and Mental Health

On this episode I'm lucky to be joined by Dr Mike Banna. Personally, I really enjoy Mike's discussions online - he adds so much nuance and balance to very black or white conversations and this is no different!  I think Mike is a really great example of how weight loss is not ALWAYS a bad thing for people, while recognising the harm it has for others.
