    Laura's story: 'Checking myself into a psychiatric hospital was the bravest thing I could do as a new mother'

    Laura's story: 'Checking myself into a psychiatric hospital was the bravest thing I could do as a new mother'

    Join me with guest Laura Guckian, life coach, host of 'Momfessions' and creator of Mind Mommy Coaching as we talk about postpartum anxiety, which, for her, was so significant she decided to check herself into a psychiatric hospital. How did the anxiety show up for her? What does a hospital level of mental health support look like? We talk about whether the problem for new mothers is the lack of support or the skewed perception of early motherhood that pervades social media.

    Terence Power's story of anxiety, addiction and having to be tough

    Terence Power's story of anxiety, addiction and having to be tough

    This week I have a powerful episode with Terence Power, co-host of the super successful Talking Bollox podcast. We try to unpack his experience of anxiety, growing up in an environment affected hugely by poverty, alcohol and drug abuse, crime and violence. How did he cope? How did he come out the other side? Was anxiety behind all of it? Terence talks through his story with such impressive vulnerability, it will no doubt help another young person in a similar position.

    Anxiety, Pain + Pleasure with Dopamine Nation's Dr Anna Lembke

    Anxiety, Pain + Pleasure with Dopamine Nation's Dr Anna Lembke

    My guest for this episode is the mega bestselling author of Dopamine Nation and her name is Dr Anna Lembke. She's an American psychiatrist and Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic at Stanford University. She is a specialist in the opioid epidemic in the United States. Here we talk about the relationship between anxiety, pleasure and pain. The pleasure pain balance and the way in which we move toward pleasure to solve anxiety and it works short term, but for many of the things we do to - such as picking up our phone to scroll - we only create more anxiety longterm. we talk about medication, addiction - and not just addiction to drugs or alcohol. We talk about our intolerance of boredom, the importance of what she calls 'pro social shame' and her go-to self binding strategies. Sign up to my Substack and get 20% off forever at this link.

    Is it history or hormones? Vicki Notaro on unpacking anxiety

    Is it history or hormones? Vicki Notaro on unpacking anxiety

    For this episode we're hearing from someone who's felt severe anxiety and figured out how to manage it. My guest is the brilliant Vicki Notaro, bestselling author of her debut novel Reality Check. A prominent journalist and editor in Ireland, Vicki has an eerily similar story to me, having been floored by anxiety for reasons she struggled to understand at the time, in her mid 20s. Here we unpack where it might have began (hormones might play a significant role) and what works for her today. Sign up to my Substack with a listener discount here.

Favorite Podcast!

This podcast has been a lifesaver! I have listened to episodes multiple times and cried the first time I listened to the first episode because someone finally understood how I felt! Caroline is like a soothing friend and this podcast has a calming effect when I am feeling anxious. I love the variety of guests and topics covered. Please keep making more episodes. Caroline, you are an inspiration ❤️
