A Cuppa With.. It starts with a conversation and a brew. To understand each other, we need to be heard.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 88. The stories we tell ourselves.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 88. The stories we tell ourselves.

    Our inner monologue is the most powerful conversation we have. Simply because there's nothing to stop it, unless we say it out loud and why would we. We believe it to be true, so don't question it. Just lately I've realised my inner monologue has been telling me a story that I believed was true, even though something inside of me felt off. What happens when you realise it's been wrong. And wrong for a while. It changes your view on everything, including yourself. I said I'd always be honest within my podcast. So here it is. Thank you for listening.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 87. A new stigma. Grouping and self diagnosis in mental health.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 87. A new stigma. Grouping and self diagnosis in mental health.

    Disclaimer; these are only my opinions gathered from my experiences and the voices of others. A new stigma seems to of arisen from the mental health movement. We are now able to speak about it but, there's seems to be a new stigma from the ability to speak on the subject. From self diagnosis, grouping, influencers, what is "in" and what diagnosis are accepted and what are not, there is a lot to this topic. This is me giving my opinions, while offering a view on how to change it.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 86. Mature students mental health. It's time we talked about it.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 86. Mature students mental health. It's time we talked about it.

    When people think of students, they usually think of someone aged under 21. Probably just starting life. There is a huge group of students that are older. Mature students are generally a side part of student information, but with over 750 thousand mature students per year and a drop out rate double than their younger counter parts. Maybe it's time we helped one aspect of mature student life, so the rest maybe eased. Our population is getting older. We're likely to change careers several times, education could be a big part of those changes. So let's talk about what it's like being a mature student and how we can help each other.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 85. A Dry Year. A year without alcohol.

    A Cuppa With.. Ep. 85. A Dry Year. A year without alcohol.

    You don't have to have a drinking problem, to know drinking is hiding your problems. Just finishing a dry year taught me this. Realising I had 20 years of a bad relationship with alcohol that should of ended, or at the very least faced, long before it did. Bad habits, numbing and bad coping mechanisms. I want to stress, I have never been diagnosed with alcoholism. And takes nothing away from those that are. It is a hard addiction to quit and I wish you the best of luck. This is just my experience of what I had to face with stopping drinking for a year to help heal myself. This comes with a strong recommendation that if you feel your drinking is getting out of hand, it may be time to look at why. Also the attitudes, groups, people and your finances change. It's amazing that alcohol has such an affect on so much without us being aware.

    This year has been an interesting one. I want to thank everyone for listening and being a part of this podcast. With out you there would be no podcast. This is just some of the past, the present and possible future from this year. Including some takes from my experience being alcohol free for the year and what I want to focus on going forward.

Lovely and Heartfelt

I Love Lynne’s Podcast!!! ❤️🔥❤️ I love the soothing sound of her voice and her transparency. Her conversations are heart touching. As a nervous guest sharing my story, she made me feel very welcome and I learned so much from Lynne. She gave me a deeper understanding of the trauma that I have been through. I’m always having “A Cuppa Aha-moments” as I listen to the Conversations.
I believe that everyone has a story to tell, a message to share. ♥️ Thank you for being real and creating Powerful Heart Spoken Conversations.

Excellent

Mental health is difficult thing for people to discuss. I love seeing that you’re bringing these hard conversations out of the shadows and into the light. We need more people who are willing to discuss their feelings and their trauma. Shannon was such an interesting guest and I really enjoyed the easy flow of conversation between you two. I learned a lot and am glad to know that I’m not alone. Thanks for making these podcasts. You’re helping me and so many others too.
