    Fiona Doherty - Connecting on a deeper level

    Fiona Doherty - Connecting on a deeper level

    This week is an extra special episode.  Before starting this interview, I knew very little about my guest Fiona Doherty, a Psychotherapist for teachers.   She was highly recommended by a friend, as Fiona "has deep interest in Mindfulness and radiates Positivity".   
    I was quite nervous about the interview, to be honest.  I felt a little like Tommy Tiernan speaking to a mystery guest on his show.  However,  it turned out to be one of the most interesting conversations I have ever had.  
    Fiona was a teacher for many years before transitioning into Psychotherapy.  She has worked in some very challenging roles, yet she still managed to really connect with her students on a deep level and be there for them, at some of the most difficult times.  Our conversation touches on many elements of her life, from deep spiritual experiences when she was younger to the grief of loosing a parent.
    I really hope you enjoy listening to this beautiful soul and learn from the wisdom she shares about what Mindfulness has brought to her life.

    27 - 3 Steps to Self-Compassion

    27 - 3 Steps to Self-Compassion

    This weeks episode is a change to the usual format.  I was invited recently to speak to a group of business owners at an online event about Compassion.  The event was part of the networking group called We Can and We Will and is run by Amanda Delaney.

    Amanda has very kindly allowed me to share the recording from the night so I have converted it to a Podcast Episode for today.  In the talk, I speak about a 3 core concepts of Self-Compassion:
    The Compassionate Mess
    The Two Arrows
    Self-Compassion Break by Kristin Neff

    I was actually nervous about this talk so I decided to Pause the talk at the start and demonstrate how we can easily take a Self-Compassion break.

    Jennifer Maher - Losing a Loved one to Suicide

    TRIGGER WARNING:
    This episode discusses the topic of Death by suicide 

    This weekend (8th May 2021) 100's of thousands of people around Ireland will walk at Sunrise to raise awareness of Death by Suicide and the effect it has on people.  This is the silent killer in our society and our guest this week knows all too well about effect it can have on a family.  We talk about the effect this has had and the difference it has made to her own path in life. 
    It is my hope that having open conversations like this might help someone have a conversation with a friend or family member that they have been putting off.

Interview with Jack Kavanagh

This was a brilliant podcast session, very personal, funny and thought provoking. Both Stephen and Jack demonstrate such warmth and self awareness as they talk about life and meditation. Highly recommend a listen.
