    The Secrets of the Sibling Relationship with psychotherapist Nicole Addis

    The Secrets of the Sibling Relationship with psychotherapist Nicole Addis

    We are so focused on the parent/child relationship we often overlook the sibling one, even though it is often the longest lasting relationship of our lives and can divulge various insights - if you know what to look for. A good sibling relationship can support and encourage you, a bad one can have profound and long-lasting effects.
    In this episode I talk to psychotherapist Nicole Addis and we discover how looking at the relationship between you and your siblings - whatever age you are.
    We also learn how, by looking at your children's sibling relationship it can teach you a lot about how they feel about you; why you should never express having a favourite child and how to foster a good sibling relationship or repair a rupture.
    This episode concludes Series 1. Series 2 will be released in the autumn of 2021, although we have some topics lined up if there's something you'd like us to cover email us at conversationswithannailsa@gmail.com

    How Trauma Can Affect Everyday Life with consultant psychiatrist in psychotherapy Jo Stubley

    How Trauma Can Affect Everyday Life with consultant psychiatrist in psychotherapy Jo Stubley

    I used to think of trauma in terms of war and soldiers but actually trauma can affect anyone and impact every day life. Its effects can be felt in the brain and the body.
    In this episode I talk to Dr Jo Stubley, who leads the adult section of the Trauma Service at the NHS's Tavistock Centre. Find out what trauma and PTSD is and what might make some people more susceptible to it. We also talk about how trauma memories are stored in different way to normal memories and perhaps most important of all, how to recognise trauma and begin to heal.

I speak to psychotherapist John Paul Davies, who specialises in relationships.

    What to Expect When Someone Dies with Dr Kathryn Mannix

    What to Expect When Someone Dies with Dr Kathryn Mannix

    This episode was a highly personal project, borne out of sitting with my dad as he was dying and realising I didn't know what to expect. I learnt that night that dying is a bit like birth, but in reverse. It's a process. Finding out about death and dying really helped me not only understand what was happening but make some sense of it. Here I speak to palliative care doctor Kathryn Mannix who has witnessed many people dying. If you think this might be scary, trust me it's actually reassuring and strangely calming.

    The Wonder of the Teenage Brain with adolescent psychotherapist Rachel Melville-Thomas

    The Wonder of the Teenage Brain with adolescent psychotherapist Rachel Melville-Thomas

    The teenage brain goes through incredible changes during adolescence. This not only explains their behaviour but, knowing what these changes are means you can help support them or - if you are the teenager - might help you understand yourself better. Rachel and I chat about what those neurological changes are and how they manifest. I also spoke to some teenagers who give invaluable insights into how to get the best out of them, what they find challenging about adult behaviour and why they always like to start up difficult conversations when you're already busy doing something else.

    The Art of Listening with psychotherapist Chris Mills

    The Art of Listening with psychotherapist Chris Mills

    Listening is a skill not everyone has and yet it's so important to every day relationships - and is at the core of 99% of the problems I hear about. In this episode I talk to Chris Mills, a psychotherapist about how to be a better listener, how to be heard (and learn how I got myself heard as a child in a noisy Italian family) with exercises you can try straight after listening.
