    #318 How To Break Subconscious Habits and Heal From Within with Dr Nicole Le Pera

    #318 How To Break Subconscious Habits and Heal From Within with Dr Nicole Le Pera

    Today I’m pleased to welcome a podcast guest who has become one of my favourite voices on social media, sharing her wisdom on the concept of self-healing. Dr Nicole Le Pera is a clinical psychologist who felt frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy and was drawn towards a mind, body and spirit approach. She believes that we’re each responsible for our thoughts, behaviours and reactions – and therefore we have the power within us to heal ourselves from past trauma.
     
    Describing herself as The Holistic Psychologist, Nicole says it’s her mission to help you ‘consciously create a new version of yourself’. Her millions of followers on Instagram and YouTube love her clear and insightful posts which identify patterns, beliefs and behaviours we might want to change. Nicole’s latest book is How To Meet Your Self: The Workbook For Self-Discovery. As it sounds, it’s a practical guide to finding out who you really are, the patterns of belief you might be stuck in, and how to overcome them.
     
    We begin by talking about the fact that many of us feel ‘stuck’ in our lives. We’re stressed, anxious, perhaps our work or relationships aren’t going well. It can feel like something’s missing or broken, but we’re not sure what and so we blame ourselves or our circumstances. But Nicole explains that what’s really going on here is that most of what we think, feel and do is a reflection of our past conditioning. We’re stuck in patterns formed in childhood that no longer serve us – or reflect who we really are.
     
    For many of us, it’s our relationships with our partners or children that can help us to finally observe these patterns. Or sometimes, she says, we need to reach rock bottom before we can start the journey of recognition and self-healing. We talk about how exactly to recognise those experiences from childhood that might have shaped your core beliefs. We look at how these beliefs can manifest throughout life in physical stress responses and hard-to-break habits, through to self-sabotaging, destructive behaviours that can leave us feeling deeply unhappy or unwell.
     
    And we discuss Nicole’s definition of emotional maturity as the realisation that your core beliefs aren’t fact – you can override and change them.
     
    This is a very thought-provoking conversation, which I think will get you looking back at your childhood and reflecting on how it might have shaped who you are today. I hope you enjoy listening.

    #316 How To Reduce Your Risk of Alzheimer’s and Keep Your Brain Young with Dr Tommy Wood

    #316 How To Reduce Your Risk of Alzheimer’s and Keep Your Brain Young with Dr Tommy Wood

    In the UK, one in 14 people over 65 will develop dementia, with that figure rising to one in six once we’re over 80. It’s fair to say it’s the disease many people fear the most. But this podcast makes it clear that cognitive decline is not a natural or inevitable part of ageing. During the course of this conversation, returning guest Dr Tommy Wood outlines plenty of simple, enjoyable things that we can all start doing right now to improve our brain health and stave off age-related dementia.
     
    Dr Tommy Wood is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Neuroscience at the University of Washington, US. He holds a degree in biochemistry from Cambridge, a medical degree from Oxford, achieved his PhD in physiology and neuroscience in Oslo, and has published papers and lectured across the globe. It’s fair to say that when it comes to brain health and longevity, he knows his stuff.
     
    We kick off our conversation with the empowering news that we can resist declining brain function simply by challenging ourselves more. We can make new cells, new connections and change the structure around them, harnessing the neuroplasticity of the brain. And it doesn’t matter if we’re 28 or 80, he says. MRI scans prove the brain can adapt at any age.
     
    Tommy explains the importance of rest, for the brain to consolidate all its new pathways, and nutrition to provide the fuel it needs to function well and grow. We talk about the role of B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids for brain development, and the fact there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to optimum diet.
     
    We also talk about the similarity between training your muscles and training your brain. And the research conclusively shows that the more muscle mass you have, and the more you move it, the lower your risk of cognitive decline. Tommy talks us through the types of exercises and the number of reps we need to do to gain muscle and brain benefits. And it's probably less than you think.
     
    We also cover the surprising value of video games, the importance of social connection, and why going to dance classes might just be the best thing you can do for your brain and body. This is a fantastic episode, jam packed with life-changing practical information. I hope you enjoy listening.

    #314 Bryony Gordon on OCD, Overcoming Addiction and Building Mental Resilience

    #314 Bryony Gordon on OCD, Overcoming Addiction and Building Mental Resilience

    CAUTION: Contains swearing and themes of an adult nature.
    Today’s guest has a remarkable life story which includes addiction, mental health struggles, eating disorders, guilt, shame and so much more. Bryony Gordon is a prominent mental health campaigner, a journalist and a bestselling author. Bryony’s latest book, Let Down Your Hair, is a novel about social media, mental health, self-esteem and body image. She’s also recently released a Sunday Times bestseller, No Such Thing As Normal: What My Mental Illness Has Taught Me About Mental Wellness in paperback form.
     
    You may be familiar with Bryony from her Telegraph column, her many books, or her Mad World podcast. Perhaps you’re one of the 206,000 people who follow her updates on Instagram. Or, maybe you know her as the Founder of peer support group Mental Health Mates. Even if you’re new to Bryony and her work, you’re about to get to know her pretty well, thanks to her hallmark honesty and authenticity when it comes to telling her story.
     
    We begin this conversation by talking about Bryony’s experience of obsessive compulsive disorder, or OCD. This condition is often misunderstood, with people reducing it to being ‘just’ about excessive tidiness or needing things in order. But Bryony shares the reality of the dark, obsessive thoughts that ruled her life from her early teens. She’s unflinchingly honest about how it led her into alcoholism, drug addiction and bulimia.
     
    We also talk about her surprising relationship with marathon running, her new-found commitment to exercise for how it makes her feel, not how it makes her look and the coping mechanisms she uses to deal with the negative voices inside her head.
     
    Although she would be the first to say she’s a ‘work in progress’ – as all of us are – Bryony passes on some real gems of practical advice and encouragement throughout this conversation which is fun, uplifting and inspiring.
    Trigger Warning: This episode discusses eating disorders and may not be suitable for everyone.

Bryony Gordon - Most Relatable Description of ‘Pure O’ OCD I’ve Ever Heard

I’ve listened to the podcast for a long while now and every episode contains some real gems of relatable advice I can honestly say have improved my life. None more so, however, than the recent conversation with Bryony Gordon. As someone who has recently started their sober journey after a problematic relationship with alcohol and a history of suffering with intrusive thoughts, a characteristic of ‘Pure O’ OCD, it is amazing to hear someone else describing almost the exact same experience, using alcohol and drugs to feel ok and now the healthier pursuits they have put in place to overcome their vicious circle of anxiety and alcohol. It can very often feel like you’re the only person who has those thoughts and experiences those feelings of shame. It’s really lifted my mood whilst I was running my 10k this morning. I am also running the London Marathon for the first time in 2023 so great to hear the discussion about the change of lifestyle that training for a big event like that brings. I’ll be investing in Bryony’s book and subscribing to her podcast. Thanks for another fantastic podcast episode. Your work makes a huge positive difference to my life and undoubtedly others too.

Inspiring but too long

Really enjoy the podcasts and have learned a lot. So many great inspiring guests. Do feel that they are too long. Hard to find time in the day (working) to listen. Agree with another reviewer that they could be edited down. Also, sometimes Dr Chatterjee talks more than the guest. He really cares and is caring and enthusiastic but could cut down his long comments and stick more to concise questions.
Particularly enjoyed recent Kindness episode and also the one about gut health….I’ve changed my eating habits as a result. Thank you!
