In this podcast, we explore the incredible world of the emotional systems present in humans and animals alike.

Dr Jess Bolton, a Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years experience, shows you that your emotional systems are as vital to health as the physiological systems you are so familiar with. Just as we can't live without our respiratory or renal systems - mammals also don't survive without assertiveness and play systems.

By investigating these systems we can share the science without getting caught in the web of mental health labels and disorders. Ready to see your life and the world through a very different lens?

    Episode #12 - The Depth And Breadth Of Feeling Good: Simultaneous Activation Of All Seven Emotional Systems

    Episode #12 - The Depth And Breadth Of Feeling Good: Simultaneous Activation Of All Seven Emotional Systems

    Dr Jess Bolton and Charley Lee explore the importance of feeling good ‘just because’ and how feeling good, feels incredible when all other emotional systems are activated in an approach position.  Named as the LUST system by Panksepp, they talk about seeing this system more broadly as helping us differentiate what is good for us and what is not.  There are powerful ripple effects for paying careful attention to experiences using the important lens of the emotional systems.
