    Kathie Stritch : Eternally Connected

    Kathie Stritch : Eternally Connected

    This week I sit down with Galway based Wellness coach Kathie Stritch.
    Originally from Cloonfad in Co. Roscommon, she lives in Galway with her partner Stephen and
    their little boy Freddie who’ll be 2 in November.
    She's one of the most impressive people I've ever met and brilliant at what she does but instead of talking to her about her career, in this conversation she shares some painful experiences that have shaped the woman she is today.
    6 years ago her world changed forever when her sister Elaine was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain tumour. Elaine was married to Pa and their two boys Adam and Jason were 1 and 4 at the time.
    This is a phenomenal conversation that I will never forget.
    Triggers : cancer, death, grief.
    She runs online courses which are a combination of fitness, nutrition and wellbeing and they're great!
    If you’re interested in participating go to her Instagram page and
    send her a direct message.

    Thanks so much for listening, and if this episode resonated with you, please share it with friends and family and if you can please leave a review, give a rating and/or subscribe as it really helps to spread the word about these conversations.
    Mílle buíochas.

    Numerology : A beginner's guide

    Numerology : A beginner's guide

    This episode is an introduction to Numerology with John Kenny, someone who’s been studying numbers and their meaning, for over 30 years now.
    He talks about the master numbers, what to look out for and what to avoid doing when it comes to numbers. He also tells us how to figure out our life path, personal year and inner need numbers, while also answering some questions I was sent on Instagram as well. As you’ll hear in our chat, it’s tricky to give a comprehensive run down of all the different elements in a single podcast, but if you’d like to contact him and book in a session, simply go to his website…

    How to find out your Life Path Number…
    Take your date of birth’s numerical value, add all those digits together by category (day, month, year), and keep adding each of those digits together until you finally end up with a single digit.
    Let’s take my birthday for example: 13th April 1979
    The date, 13, is reduced to 1 + 3 = 4. The month is 4. The year, 1979, is reduced to 1 + 9 + 7 + 9. This equals 26. Then, 26 is reduced to 2 + 6 = 8
    Then, we add the reduced date, month and year numbers (4 + 4 + 8) and arrive at 16. Finally, we add 1 + 6, and reach 7.
    My life path number is 7.
    Exception - during the calculation process, if one of your groups totals 11 or 22, you do not reduce those values to a single digit until the final reduction. That’s because 11 and 22 are “master numbers,” according to numerology, which have their own special meanings.
    ** There have been a few edits to this episode as John often spoke to me about my own numbers and their meaning during our conversation and I took a lot of that out as I didn’t think many of you would be interested in hearing about me!

    Rosanna Davison : Dare to Dream

    Rosanna Davison : Dare to Dream

    This week I chat to nutritionist, author and devoted new Mum, Rosanna Davison.
    She lives in Dublin with her husband Wes Quirke, and their baby daughter Sophia.
    And in this episode, she shares her journey to motherhood; from multiple miscarriages, years of tests, treatments and heartache to their decision to try surrogacy and the happiest moment of her life, when her baby girl was finally in her arms.
    Rosanna is strong, incredibly honest and full of compassion and her struggles are a reminder to all of us, that we never really know what’s going on in other people’s lives.
    I wish her and her family all the love in the world.

    Triggers: Fertility, pregnancy, miscarriage, tests and treatments, surrogacy.

    Jamie and Georgie Crawford : Unbreakable

    Jamie and Georgie Crawford : Unbreakable

    Jamie and Georgie Crawford are a couple who’ve been tested in many ways. From Jamie’s MS diagnosis in 2012 to Georgie discovering she had breast cancer five years later…they have been through more than most people experience in a lifetime but despite everything they have had to deal with, their relationship is stronger than ever and their appreciation for life is truly inspiring.
    Jamie made the decision to speak publicity about his MS diagnosis at the end of May on Georgie’s hugely popular podcast ‘The Good Glow’.
    They live in Dublin with their three year old daughter Pia and their dog Piper.
    And in this conversation, they give us an insight into their relationship, they talk about the healing power of nature, the importance of talking and their plans to expand their family.
    I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Annie Lavin - The Relationship Coach

    Annie Lavin - The Relationship Coach

    In this episode I speak to a relationship expert and we explore singledom, healthy and unhealthy relationships, dating in the time of Corona and the importance of acceptance wherever you are in life.

    Dating-relationship coach and relationship educator Annie Lavin, goes by the name "The Relationship Coach" and works with people far and wide to empower them to create and maintain, healthy, meaningful intimate relationships.

    Content being single herself, she has experienced the trials and tribulations it has taken to reach this point.

    When love and relationships begin to feel very confusing and out of control it can be hard to know who to turn to for support. This is one of the reasons Annie decided to combine her background in Psychology, Education, Coaching and Psychotherapy to
    empower clients to relate to themselves with compassion and skill.

    At the moment she works with clients remotely one to one, but is in the process of designing online programmes and if you'd like to work with her or you are simply interested in some dating or relationship advice, check out her Instagram page

    Dermot Whelan : Power of Play

    Dermot Whelan : Power of Play

    Comedian, TV and radio broadcaster and now meditation teacher too; Dermot Whelan is my guest this week.
    Dermot has been meditating for many years, but now, having trained as a teacher, he's passionate about breaking through some of the misconceptions people have about meditation to help bring it to a wider audience.

    He's married to Corrina, they have three kids and they live in Dublin.
    His colleague and friend is the equally brilliant Dave Moore who he's worked with for the past 18 years on award winning radio show 'Dermot and Dave'.

    And in this conversation, we talk about many things...his lessons from lockdown, his new found love of skateboarding, the importance of taking time out for yourself and he also guides us through a short but effective breathing exercise which I loved and I think you will too.

I just love all of Síle’s podcasts and look forward to them coming out. Listened to 2 in a row today, the Numerology one which was really interesting and the one with Kathie Stritch which was incredible. I like that she talks to ordinary people mostly, it’s very enjoyable.
