Tony is a natural lifestyle coach and he’s spent the last 18 years developing and refining a robust way of life based on the principles of a natural lifestyle. Central to his continuing exploration is the question, “What makes the human animal successful in the modern world?”







    We have a really interesting discussion all about the links between our disconnection from nature and the levels of depression and anxiety that we experience.







    Tony

    teaches us how we can re-wild ourselves, what we can do at work, at home and in

    our daily lives to connect back to nature and gain all the health and mental

    well-being benefits of doing that.







    And

    he shares loads of practical tips on everything from the plants that you need

    to have in your house to clean the air, to how to sleep better, to how to squat

    better and so much more.







    I think you are going to really find this episode quite fascinating and mind-blowing. So, let’s get into the interview with Tony Riddle.

    Hello and

    welcome to the Calmer You Podcast. This is your host, Chloe Brotheridge. I’m a

    coach, a hypnotherapist, and I’m the author of The Anxiety Solution and Brave

    New Girl. And this podcast is all about helping you to become your calmest,

    happiest and most confident self.







    Chloe

    Brotheridge: Thank you so much for listening today. Obviously, I’m so

    aware of what an anxious time this is for so many of you. I’ve been having tons

    of messages and questions coming through about how to deal with the uncertainty

    about coronavirus and all the things that we have to deal with from redundancy

    is to not be able to leave the house to lack of social interaction to fear

    about our health and the health of our loved ones. There are so many things to

    consider right now.







    And so, what I normally do is record

    podcasts quite a few weeks in advance and I’ve decided to push back the ones I

    had scheduled and actually have in place some podcasts that are dealing with

    the issues that we’re struggling with today.







    So, obviously, I know what an anxious

    time they says and I’m going to be planning some online workshops to help you

    to feel more resilient and feel more positive in what is, for many people, a

    really challenging time.







    If you want to hear about that and also download some of the freebies I have on my website, you can go to calmer-you.com/free. I’ve got hypnotherapy mp3 on there, affirmations, worksheets; all designed to help me to be a calmer you. And I’ll also let you know about any events or live workshops I’m doing online.







    So, I am chatting on the podcast today to my friend, Toni Jones. She was a guest, maybe a year ago now, on the podcast. She’s the founder of the self-help book club, Shelf Help. And I definitely recommend you check them out. There’s tons for you to get involved in. Even though the in-person meetups aren’t happening for now, she’s doing loads of stuffs online. Definitely check out Shelf Help Club on Facebook and on her website and on Instagram.







    I got in touch with Toni because she’d written

    a fascinating blog post, all about working from home and the challenges that

    can come up for us when it comes to working from home; from being productive to

    Intro: Hello, and welcome to the Calmer You podcast, this is your host Chloe Brotheridge, I’m a coach, a hypnotherapist and I’m the author of The Anxiety Solution and Brave New Girl.” And this podcast is all about helping you to become your calmest, happiest, and most confident self. So in the podcast today I get to speak about Becki Rabin, she’s a friend of mine, she is a wonderful business coach, she’s a brand consultant, a speaker, an entrepreneur and she’s all about helping people to get lit. She explains exactly what that means in this episode. She has so many useful ideas on helping us to master our mindset and feel better about who we are and dial-up our self-worth, how we can build a life of our dreams, how to become the happiest version of ourselves and really unlocking our fullest potential.















    I think this really comes through in this episode with Becki. She shares a lot about her own transformation and the journey that she’s been on to really shifting her mindset and changing her life in quite dramatic ways. We get into this topic of being lit, being lit up, you know turning a light on, this is something that Becki is really focused on helping people with and why for so many of us we can hold ourselves back from really shining brightly and being confident because we are so scared of what other people are going to think. And so she shares a lot about this and how we can overcome those barriers, so that we can just be our most confident selves. We also talk about anxiety.







    Becki shares some of practical tools that she helps her own clients with, and we also get the topic of social media and that pressure, and how we can try to not allow social media to take over our lives.







    So I would love to send you some free resources to help you become your calmest and happiest, the most confident self, you can head over the calmeryou.com/free, enter your e-mail address there, then I’m going to send you those free resources, mp3s, worksheets, lots of practical tools, and updates about the podcast, and you can get that calmeryou.com/free.

    Introduction







    Chloe: Hello, and welcome to the Calmer You podcast. This is your host Chloe Brotheridge, I’m a coach, a hypnotherapist, and I’m the author of “the anxiety solution and brave new girl,” and this podcast is all about helping you to become your calmest, happiest and most confident self. In this episode, I’m talking to the wonderful Nicky Clinch, and Nicky is such a special person, she came over to my house to recall this episode, we actually live quite close to one another in London, in Hackney, East London. And we sat together on the sofa, and I honestly felt like this conversation was so healing for me, and it really came at the right time for me personally and I really hope it helps here as well.







    Nicky is a transformational leader and facilitator, she has studied

    integrative counseling and macrobiotics, she is also a spiritual mentor and

    it’s her mission in life to help all of us to break free from the confines of

    our past traumas, ourselves defeating patterns, and our suffering. So that we

    can realize and come home to who we are. So Nicky and I get into lots different

    topics, we start off by talking about trauma and how it can be the root of so

    many of our issues and how we can start to overcome the traumas that held us

    back. Nicky gives us her take on anxiety and where that comes from and what we

    can do to start to manage our own anxiety.















    And Nicky advice definitely isn’t the standard 3 tips to curing anxiety something that you might read day-to-day, it really does go very very deep and it’s very very powerful. She shares some really moving personal stories about how she’s healed her own trauma, how own experience of plant medicines, her own transformation and how she helps other people to transform. She also shares the incredible story about how she was 50000 words into writing her book, she had publishing deal with Hey house and how she actually scrapped the whole 50000 words and went on a different path and this is incredible for me, as someone who has written a book to let go of 50000 words, that’s just terrifying to me.







    So I love this story with Nicky, it was incredibly inspiring. So I would

    love to send some free resources to help you grow your confidence, boost your

    self-esteem and calm your anxiety, if you want these freebies you can head over

    to my website; calmeryou.com/free, put your email address in there and I’ll

    send you those freebies right away. So let’s get into the interview with Nicky...

    Ep 91 Find your voice and get out of your head with Caroline Goyder

    This week on the Calmer You podcast I speak with voice coach and author of Find Your Voice, Carline Goyder. She knows a thing or two about how to find your voice and get out of your head.







    We chat about:







    * What is confidence?* Why nerves are good* How to overcome blushing or shaking when you’re speaking* How to improve your confidence when it comes to speaking* Phone phobia * And lots more!















    Transcript







    Introduction







    Chloe: Hello and welcome to the Calmer You Podcast. This is your host Chloe Brotheridge, I’m a coach, a hypnotherapist and I’m the author of “the anxiety solution, and brave new girl” and this podcast is all about helping you to become your calmest happiest and most confident self. Today on the podcast, I have the pleasure of speaking to Caroline Goyder who is a voice coach, and she’s the author of the new book “Find your voice.” She is also a Ted x. Speaker and her Ted Talk has had 7 and a half million views which is really incredible. In this episode we’re talking all about confidence, particularly confidence when it comes to speaking, whether that’s speaking on a stage, speaking up in a meeting or speaking on the phone.







    And this is I hope such a reassuring chat because both Caroline and I

    have struggled in this area before, we both admitted to having blushed in the

    past. And so it’s really coming from a place of her having experienced the

    nervousness and the fear that comes along with speaking, and having learned a

    lot about herself, made a lot of progress and she actually gets to help other

    people with that as well. So we talk about Caroline’s definition of confidence,

    and I think this is really interesting, not what you might be expecting. We

    talk about why nerves are actually a good thing and why there’s nothing to be

    ashamed about if you do experience nerves before speaking, it’s actually

    completely normal and I hope this conversation helped to normalize even more

    and how to know there’s nothing to be ashamed of.







    We talk about how to overcome the specific things that can hold us back

    from speaking like blushing or shaking or speaking to the fast and Caroline

    shares lots of tips on growing your confidence in general, when it comes to

    speaking, phone phobia and people who experience this will know what I’m

    talking about if you’re scared of being on the phone in front of the people in

    the office for example or if you’re someone that maybe doesn’t like to answer

    the phone when people call, if it’s an unknown number for example, I’m one of

    these people by the way.







    And we just got into loads of helpful ideas around the topic of speaking confidence, and finding your voice. So if you want to get some free resources from me on growing your confidence, boosting your self-esteem, calming anxiety, I’ve got loads of freebies on my website for you, if you had over to calmeryou.com/free and to enter your email address there, I’m going to send you mp3’s, worksheet, podcast updates and loads more. So head over to Calmeryou.com/free, so let’s get into the interview with Caroline Goyder.







    Chloe: So welcome Caroline, thank you so much for joining me, how are you?







    Caroline: I’m good, pleasure to be here.







    Chloe: Please can you tell us what it is you do and how you came to do that you

    today?
