    S4 EP 36: It's Never Too Late to Heal

    S4 EP 36: It's Never Too Late to Heal

    This week I'm joined from the Netherlands by Irene Kloppenburg a transformational life coach who uses a
    unique form of treatment and coaching for stress, anxiety, phobia's PTSD and more.

     

    She lived in a commune, one of 11 children who felt they were not accepted or loved by their own father!



    Irene became a teacher who had a special gift for
    being able to see in children and young teens their strengths rather than their weaknesses.

     

    She talks about her passion for helping people, music and her own journey to healing from family trauma and not 'good enoughness'

     

    A must listen for highly sensitive people and those struggling with negative childhood memories, anxiety,
    phobia's, trauma or PTSD.

    S4 EP 34: Eating Disorders & Money Blocks

    S4 EP 34: Eating Disorders & Money Blocks

    In this solo episode I am talking about the powerful money stories that folks with eating disorders
    and body image issues tend to have in common!



    Driven by lack, scarcity and a belief they 'don't deserve' means that money stories around waste and value are often confused and conflicting, often leading to overwhelm, anxiety, strict restrictions and out of control binges.

    S4 EP 33: DEPRESSION IS NOT MY IDENTITY

    In today's episode Caitriona McBride and I talk about her struggles with depression.

    This is a very real, open and honest chat about when she first felt the overpowering feeling of wanting not to be here on the planet anymore and her journey over the years to deal with those crushing thoughts and feelings while still trying to study, get a job, and lead a 'normal' life.



    We talk about meditacation, lifestyles and learning to recognise the signs and more.

    S4 EP 32: Emotions are normal NOT a mental health problem.

    S4 EP 32: Emotions are normal NOT a mental health problem.

    In this solo episode I am talking about just what emotions are and why we need to feel them but NOT be fixated or ruled by them!

     

    We are in a weird time at the moment where 'normal human emotions' are being pathologised and medications are being handed out without due thought for the long term effects on squash feelings and changing pathways that are simply normal.

     

     Which means we have a situation where people are
    on sick leave for life and some young people never even start in the world of work...



    The effect on future generations if this trend continues as it is, is frightening. I cover all this and more in this episode and as I say a couple of times in the broadcast I am offering you a free chilled out chat with me to help you.



    If you are struggling to know if how you feel and think is normal or if there really is an underlaying mental health issue.

     

    You can book that call with me here: https://tidycal.com/vicky1/30-minute-chat


     

    Or email me direct: vicky@vickymidwood.com

    S4 EP 31: Check-in With Your Body to Quieten Your Mind

    In this solo episode I talk about alcohol dependence, bulimia and a chattering mind that feels like it never stops!



    I cover why going into your body can help you reduce anxiety and quieten the noise and exactly how you can do that for yourself.



    If you are struggling with food, body image, anxiety or alcohol issues and you are sick and tired of struggling to free of them on your own, I invite you to reach out for free chilled out chat with me.
