    Lockdown Loneliness

    The  pandemic left Kelly, aged 24, feeling alone and without purpose when her dance career was turned upside down. In January 2021, things came to a head for Kelly and she tried to take her own life. By reaching out to the Samaritans for support, Kelly was able to open up to her family and friends about how she was feeling and found a support network that led her to retrain and find a passion in fitness. She chats to Yvette about her story: lockdown, loneliness and the Samaritans.

Different perspectives

Really good to hear how others manage.

Soma 2019 ,

Raw and real

I really like listening to this podcast. As someone who has gone through some of issues discussed I really relate to it.

It's also very raw in how the guests share their own mental health journeys.

The only reason I have knocked a star off is sometimes the sound quality can be distracting. Especially if an episode has been recorded in a cafe you can hear this etc.

Pudding Palace ,

Excellent and widely relateable

I adore this podcast! The interviews are candid and real, full of personality and the humour which keeps them uplifting. I think it's something that would be highly relateable and accessible to anyone, with or without a mental health disorder, as it highlights many varying topics and differing perspectives. I just feeled buoyed up, calmer, and generally a little more enlightened after listening to any of the episodes...thank you for creating them! :)
