Sometimes you can listen to something that can have an immediate impact on your wellbeing and your soul. It can truly change your life. Here are some of our most powerful podcasts for a quick yet transformational boost of emotional healing. Profound wisdom in each of them.
Trish Beauchamp is a coach who helps women navigate change in relationships due to divorce, death or disconnection. She spent 35 years as a teacher and then experienced her own midlife unravelling, facing personal challenges with health, relationships and a change in career. She joins me to talk about anxiety, because most of us could use some healing in that particular area.
Silke is an experienced grief specialist and hypnotherapist, working especially with subconscious processes. She’s assisted hundreds of clients with grief and anxiety often drawing on her personal experience. Grief is often a big part of midlife. The more we love and the older we get, the more we will grieve. Knowing there are resourceful ways to grieve gives people relief and hope.
This is a beautiful and empowering conversation about a difficult topic.
Tonya Carter is a Relationship Transformation Coach. She’s full of wisdom about relationships, coping through divorce and also just about who we are and can become as we go through life. She’s the author of “Divorce Your Story: A Woman’s Guide to Heal & Thrive after Divorce” and she runs a 12-week program that stretches women to look within to awaken their voice, evolve relationally, and lead personally and professionally in all areas of life. There’s a ton of wisdom here about healing after divorce.
Dr Kathryn Mannix has devoted her life to the palliative care of the dying. She has written a remarkable book called With The End In Mind which everyone should read! It was such a pleasure to talk to her about death and how we can do that better. Here’s how to begin the healing, before your loved one has died, for both you and them.
Laura Davis is the author of 6 non-fiction books which have sold more than 1.8 million copies. In this episode she talks about her latest book, her first memoir: The Burning Light of Two Stars: A Mother-Daughter Story. I finished the book the day before recording, and was profoundly moved by it. I was also very tearful. I recommend the book for all women as we’re all daughters. And many of us have relationships we need to heal from. (Trigger Warning: Sexual Abuse)
Vicky Midwood is a health, nutrition and lifestyle coach who specialises in helping people with disordered eating or drinking. This is an issue for many women, especially as a coping mechanism in midlife. But it’s a deeply flawed attempt at self-soothing/healing and just creates more problems. Vicky shares her own experience of healing from emotional eating and drinking, and the lessons she has learnt.
A second podcast with the very wonderul Dr Kathryn Mannix, this time talking about her latest book Listen: How to Find the Words for Tender Conversations . This is a powerful and moving conversation which I hope you will love as much as we did. All the tools to use listening and tender conversations to heal the soul.
Nicola Foster, relationship and intimacy therapist and coach is here to help protect and heal your relationship when it’s under stress. Even the best of relationships have been under strain in the crazy conditions of the pandemic, war, recession etc. There’s lots of great advice here to heal your relationship before it breaks!
An empowering discussion with Dr Rhoberta Shaler, the relationship help expert. She helps people to recognize and recover from the toxic relationships that can make us crazy! I had some epiphanies with this one! We can heal from the most hurtful people.
