    Being Opened Up To – We Are What We Overcome Episode 023

    Being Opened Up To – We Are What We Overcome Episode 023

    What do you do when someone opens up to you? It’s a privilege, but it’s also potentially terrifying, very awkward and just difficult to know how to respond! We talk about what it feels like when a friend, family member, or even a complete stranger shares something deeply personal with us, and how we might respond. 

    Everyone needs to talk more about mental health and we’re no exception, especially in these weird times. This podcast is not a substitute for professional counselling.

    Putting the Past in the Picture – We Are What We Overcome Episode 022

    Putting the Past in the Picture – We Are What We Overcome Episode 022

    This episode is about being in counselling, sharing how the process can feel, and what can be gained from the experience. Ten years after being in counselling, Nick shares some excerpts from the notes he made after those sessions. He talks about piecing shattered memories back together, why that’s a fundamental part of his here and now, and with a detached approach he wanders through his scattered reflections on that past. This episode contains conversations and personal thoughts about child abuse, self-harm, and trauma - please use your own judgement before listening.

    Information Overload – We Are What We Overcome Episode 021

    Information Overload – We Are What We Overcome Episode 021

    Modern life is filled with a seemingly endless barrage of information - news, social media feeds, gossip... stuff. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming, but you can't just turn it off... can you? This time we chat about how being constantly fed news affects us, how we feel about it and what we can do to manage the insistent external voices.

    Why Don't Men Ask for Help? – We Are What We Overcome Episode 020

    Why Don't Men Ask for Help? – We Are What We Overcome Episode 020

    We talk about the barriers to seeking help, recognising whether we need help, and why it is that so many people don't reach out when they're in distress. It's complicated, and we talk about our own personal experiences with realising we need help, as well as how we've seen others seek aid.

    Feeling Regret – We Are What We Overcome Episode 019

    Feeling Regret – We Are What We Overcome Episode 019

    This month we talk about something that can linger in the back of our minds... regret. It's a slippery feeling, and so we spend some time trying to figure out what regret is, and what leads us to hold onto feelings that often hurt.

    Looking Forward to the New Year - We Are What We Overcome Episode 018

    Looking Forward to the New Year - We Are What We Overcome Episode 018

    Gosh it's been a long year... or super-short? Either way, there's a new one coming up in just a couple of days. For some that brings promise of hope and change, for others it's the beginning of the same old cycle. 

    We met up just before Christmas to talk about this annual event, hanging out at Derby Arena's Sleeping Beauty pantomime during set construction, which set a cheery tone for the conversation to follow. 

    Join us as we consider hope, reflecting on the past, making positive changes and whether new year makes any sense at all.
