    61. Why is intimacy so darn hard?

    61. Why is intimacy so darn hard?

    Intimacy (and I am not talking about sex), in my opinion is one of the hardest things in the whole world, but also, something that gives us the deepest most heart fulfilling satisfaction.
    Gah, what a dilemma! It would be so much easier if we could just get all operational and robotic and not have to have those hard conversations, get vulnerable and honest with ourselves and then share it with another....we could just get on with it. But alas, as humans, we are drawn back in to the fray.
    To do it best, intimacy starts within with an intimate relationship with ourselves. So what does that look like?
    In this episode I share my very messy intimate journey that led me to be an intimacy and relationship coach and share with you what getting intimate entails.
    This episode was inspired by an interview on @drkirstyseward 's podcast. You can listen to that here - podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/dr-kirsty-seward/id1617397162

    Trailer - The Beauty Load podcast

    Trailer - The Beauty Load podcast

    Hello ,it's me Nicole Mathieson and I would like to introduce you to my brand new podcast; The Beauty Load, How to feel good enough in your body.
    This podcast is inspired by my book also called the Beauty Load in which I explore this exhausting pressure, anxiety and insecurity that many if not all women feel in regards to the way they look.
    In this podcast, I aim to explore how the Beauty Load is felt by different people, in different countries, different cultures and sub-cultures and with different experts.
    I aim to normalise the struggle of the Beauty Load.
    I aim to question the culture, the expectations and the high standards we hold ourselves to.
    I aim to raise awareness of how much of a privilege it is to even worry about this. But also to raise awareness of how much we are trapped and limited by this constant insecurity and anxiety the way that we look creates in us.
    Most of all, I hope that in all this exploring we feel a little bit less alone and we can minimise the load that we carry, so that we can just get on with living our lives and being our beautiful, radiant selves.

    059: Why body image is a relationship issue

    059: Why body image is a relationship issue

    Why is a relationship coach / therapist writing a book about body image I hear you ask? That's because the Beauty Load, body image, how we feel about ourselves and our confidence with fitting in in the world, are all relationship issues. I don't know about you but my body was front and centre as I stepped into relationship and sexual intimacy as a young adult. Listen in as I share how my book The Beauty Load is a relationship book in so many ways. Grab your copy of the book at nicolemathieson.com/thebeautyload Follow me on Instagram @nicole.mathieson Take care Nicole

    058: Your man doesn't "get" your Beauty Load stress

    Sometimes we feel wrong for feeling the Beauty Load, especially when our males partner's or friends just don't get it. But the stress and concern of the Beauty Load is real and in this episode I share an example that demonstrates how differently the Load is experienced, generally speaking, by women and men.

    057: The Beauty Load intro author reading

    057: The Beauty Load intro author reading

    In this special Beauty Load episode of the podcast, I am reading the first chapter (the introduction) of my new book The Beauty Load, how to feel enough in a world obsessed with beauty.  The message of my book is basically that you feeling not "enough" about your looks is not personal, it is not about you and your looks but instead it is inevitable if you have grown up in a culture with such toxic messaging and an obsession with beauty. 
    To buy the book, go to nicolemathieson.com/thebeautyload/
    or pop over to Amazon, Booktopia or The Book depository.

Raw, Honest and Deeply Moving

Unbreakable is such a beautiful, raw, honest and authentic podcast series hosted by the gorgeous Nicole Mathieson. Nicole knows how to ask the hard questions that unravel the true core of that bathroom floor moment that unfortunately most of us have experienced.
Highly recommend you sit down and open your heart to this beautiful and deeply moving interview series!

Inspiring!

An awesome collection of interviews of woman with various "bathroom floor moments" and how they have worked it through and found the courage and resilience to continue. A helpful guide for those experiencing hardship and offers hope and guidance in many ways. Nicole Mathieson seems to have a natural, genuine way of connecting with people.
