    In a world of uncertainty - the one thing you can control with Marisa Peer

    In a world of uncertainty - the one thing you can control with Marisa Peer

    My guest this week says we are all born feeling enough, with an innate sense of esteem and confidence. And our job if we want to live a fulfilled life, is to get back to that place where we are enough just as we are.

    In this episode, I’m talking about the power of the mind with Marisa Peer. She’s been named the UKs #1 therapist as voted by Tatler Magazine and has spent over three decades treating a client list that includes international superstars, CEOs, Royalty, and Olympic athletes.

    Her approach is known as Rapid Transformational Therapy. It’s a mind optimisation science that completely transforms a person’s way of thinking and therefore living - in just as little as 1 or 2 sessions.

    I have wanted to talk with Marisa for a long time, and this is an important time to have Marisa on the podcast.

    Right now there is a lot of uncertainty for parents, yet Marisa has some simple and transformative ways to use our mind to change our experience. I’m excited for you to hear this episode.

    We talk about:

    - the power of what we say to ourselves

    - simple ways to use our mind to change our experience

    - the way you feel about everything is based on just two things

    - how to speak to yourself

    - the three Ps to evaluate any situation

    - how can we give ourselves certainty

    - the power of rewards

    - the power of ‘I am enough’


    As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.

    The virtues of separation with Amy Ransom

    The virtues of separation with Amy Ransom

    My guest on this episode believes we need to reframe the narrative that a breakup is the end of something and instead view it as the start of your journey to self-realisation.

    Amy Ransom is a writer, blogger and author of several books, including The New Mum’s Notebook and her newest release The Soul-Soaring Virtues of Separation.

    Amy is passionate about spreading the word that the end of a relationship doesn't have to mean despair. Separation can be the enabler to live a more authentic and joyful life. In 2016 she separated from her husband with 3 small children and it turned out to be her most positive experience yet.

    This episode isn’t just about separation though, I believe she is offering a process that’s useful for anyone contemplating big change.

    We talk about:

    - The surprising way her marriage ended

    - The aftermath of early separation

    - How to discover lost parts of your self

    - The process for any big change

    How to protect your energy with Jane Tavakalian

    How to protect your energy with Jane Tavakalian

    Jane Tavakalian, also known as Jane Lightworker, is a mum of three, an intuitive business and life coach and the creator of the #1 course for empathetic people looking to take their energy and power back.

    Energy is finite. We only have so much of it each day, and yet often without knowing it we give that energy far too quickly to other people and things that aren't that important to us. We feel exhausted and depleted, not from lack of sleep, but from allowing ourselves to be drained by what's going on outside of us.

    So how do we preserve our energy for things that actually matter to us? How do we claw that precious energy back and become more empowered?

    Well, this insightful episode will tell you how.

    You will learn:

    - What it means to be an empath
    - How to know if you are one
    - Navigate the energy around you as a parent
    - How to reconnect with yourself
    - How to shift your whole experience of life with a mindset change
    - The Law of Assumption and how to use it to transform your day

    As you may already know, I’m very excited about our sponsor, Zendium toothpaste.

    Being born as a mother with Latham Thomas

    Being born as a mother with Latham Thomas

    This week's guest Latham Thomas is a master doula and activist. She was named one of Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul 100, has a host of celebrity clients, a global following with her Mama Glow brand, two books, and is the co-founder of the popular Continuum Conference.

    Latham shares “If you think about what happens when the baby arrives here, they are born but the mother is also born. And it’s a rebirth for that person. Who she once was is no longer; she’s someone new.”

    I think this episode is a special one. It will help you all helicopter above the day to day challenges we are all facing right now and think about the bigger picture. It's a moving episode which I hope gives you a sense of peace and perspective. It certainly did for me.

    She shares about:

    - her mission to help women reclaim the birth experience
    - the difference between a calling and a passion
    - Latham's moving and beautiful hope for her legacy
    - what we can do about the black maternal health crisis
    - becoming a more divine version of ourselves
    - why it’s so important to envision how we want to experience giving birth
    - what's most important during and post-pregnancy
    - her hope for all mums

    DISCOUNT FOR THE MOTHERKIND COMMUNITY

    As you may already know, I’m very excited about our sponsor, Zendium toothpaste.

    Zendium toothpaste naturally strengthens your mouth’s natural defenses and reduces bad bacteria responsible for dental problems. Parents will be familiar with the battle to get their kids to brush their teeth, but did you know that kids have 3x more taste buds than adults? This makes them particularly sensitive to strong flavours and foaming agents, which can result in difficulties with brushing and too-short brushing times. You may also not have known but your child’s mouth also has its very own natural defences, made up of enzymes and proteins in saliva, that have the ability to protect them from dental problems.

    Why parenting is generational with Philippa Perry

    Why parenting is generational with Philippa Perry

    After reading The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your  Children Will Be Glad That You Did), I knew I had to get Philippa Perry on the podcast. She is a renowned psychotherapist, author, journalist, and television presenter, and the wife of artist Grayson Perry.

    In this episode she helps us unpack what gets in the way of connecting with our children.

    She would like children to be able to tell their parents absolutely anything. And, as parents, she says it could be dangerous to close that down. If we can have a strong healthy connection with our kids, the future can take care of itself.

    We dig into:

    - How to have connected, trusting relationships with our children (even if we didn't have that with our own parents)

    - What gets in the way of having a good connection with our kids and what can enhance it

    - The trouble with not feeling our own pain

    - The generational cycles of parenting

    - What does it mean to give our kids 'enough' attention

    - Authenticity vs perfection parenting

    - How to help children express anger without acting out

    There is so much heart and wisdom in this exchange with Philippa. I hope you can feel it too.
