In this episode, I speak with Emilia Thompson who is a Nutrition Consultant, founder of EIQ, and a former bodybuilding competitor. We speak about what needs to change in the health and fitness industry, the role of a coach in supporting clients, and why so many nutritionists are retraining in psychology. I must say, this is one of my favourite episodes so far!

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.

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.

In this new short series, I dive into some of the things that mental health professionals commonly hear in the therapy room! Just as a precursor to the podcast, these are general things that therapists might hear from clients and they are not specific to the people I work with or the clinicians I work worth. In addition, it’s important to remember that everyone is at a different stage of their journey when it comes to mental health and it’s important not to compare where you’re at with what is discussed in these podcasts.
