    The Autoimmune Mystery with Dr. Sara Gottfried

    The Autoimmune Mystery with Dr. Sara Gottfried

    There is a paradigm shift happening in how we view our mental and physical health, recognising the innate link between our brains and our bodies. Physical health issues can impact our mental health and our mental health can impact our physical health. New emerging research is also beginning to show a link between trauma and chronic conditions like autoimmune disease. 

    Niall is joined by friend of the podcast Dr. Sara Gottfried, who you may remember from our ‘Hormone Health’ episode. Sara’s latest work focuses on this relationship between trauma and autoimmune conditions, and other triggers. Sara explains the root cause of autoimmune disease and why, even as a medical doctor, she sees the need to look for answers outside of the GPs office. They also discuss the need to reach people before the point of crisis, preferably with prevention, empowering people with autonomy, accessibility support to take care of their health and the promising research in psychedelic therapy that could be life-changing for those with chronic illness.

    The Soul Coach with Gerry Hussey

    The Soul Coach with Gerry Hussey

    At a time when the events happening in the world are terrifying and overwhelming, it’s important we focus on what is in our control. 

    Niall is joined by renowned performance psychologist, coach and co-founder of ‘Soul Space’, Gerry Hussey. Gerry has a unique and holistic approach to personal development, which combines elements of psychology, mindfulness, spirituality, and physical health. Niall and Gerry, like the rest of the world, have been deeply affected by the atrocities happening in Palestine and have a candid conversation about what we can do as individuals and how we can cope with the devastation we’re seeing everyday. They also discuss the importance of values, how taking care of ourselves can reignite our drive and passion for life, the interesting beginning of Gerry and Niall’s friendship and how they’ve influenced each other’s way of thinking about the world.

    Sacred Rituals with Nóirín Ní Riain

    Sacred Rituals with Nóirín Ní Riain

    Ireland is rich with ancient wisdom and has a unique connection to spirituality and the land that has been carried forward by some incredible souls. 

    In this episode, Niall is joined by the beautiful soul Nóirín Ní Riain, an Interfaith Minister, an internationally acclaimed spiritual singer, theologian, writer, musicologist, and Celtic Spirituality expert. Nóirín’s relationship with spirituality began as a small troubled child, when she spent a lot of time in Glenstal Abbey near her home in Limerick. This relationship grew all through her music career and expanded outside of christianity when she was ordained an interfaith minister in 2017. Niall and Nóirín discuss Ireland’s complex relationship with spirituality and how institutionalisation ripped away our rituals and connection, how listening to our hearts and to the land will always guide us home and share a mutual ‘grá’ for the wisdom of Nóirín’s good friend John O’Donohue.

    Burnt Out & B@ll*xed with Dr. Sharon Grossman

    Burnt Out & B@ll*xed with Dr. Sharon Grossman

    Most of us end the year feeling burnt out and a little bit b@ll*xed and make promises to ourselves that next year will be different. Although a lot of us have felt or relate to being burnt out, it’s important we get to the route cause of what it actually is and what’s causing it. 

    Niall is joined by Dr. Sharon Grossman, aka The Burnout Doc and author of The 7E Solution to Burnout. As a self-professed over-achiever, Sharon has worked through her own experiences with burnout and now works with some of the world’s biggest companies to shift their culture to support their people. Niall and Sharon discuss the sometimes subtle, sometimes all consuming symptoms, how knowing your personality type can help you decode your burnout and why rest is the most important ingredient to help with recovery and prevention long term.

    The Science Of Stuck with Britt Frank

    The Science Of Stuck with Britt Frank

    Do you ever find yourself feeling stuck? We can get lost in relationships, work, addiction issues, body struggles or other situations that leave us dealing with immense guilt and shame when we can’t shake ourselves out of it. 

    Niall is joined by Britt Frank, a neuropsychotherapist, teacher, trauma specialist and author of ‘The Science of Stuck’, a practical guide on the neuroscience of stuck-ness and how we can break free from the patterns that keep us there. Having experienced immense trauma as a child, Britt’s life has given her a unique perspective on how it impacts us psychologically and physiologically, which for her eventually led to meth addiction, time spent in a cult and a Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis. Niall and Britt dive into the failings of our mental health systems in how they see and treat our symptoms without looking any deeper, the important messages this feeling of stuck can be trying to communicate and how sometimes the why isn’t as important as taking those small steps to get yourself moving again.

    The Therapy Room - The Survivor Self with Dr. Tony Bates and Louize Carroll

    The Therapy Room - The Survivor Self with Dr. Tony Bates and Louize Carroll

    As we grow from babies into adults we learn to adapt ourselves to fit the environment we’re in. If we grow up in a space where our needs are not met emotionally, we can develop what has been coined the ‘Survivor Self’ or the adaptive self. 

    Niall is joined by our resident expert psychologists, Dr. Tony Bates and Louize Carroll, as we step inside the therapy room to see how our survival self can come to hurt us later in life. These patterns of behaviour can come to harm our relationships, work life, health and sense of self, so it’s important we recognise this part of ourselves. Louize and Tony break down the complex and nuanced ways our survivor self develops, manifests and can wreak havoc in our relationships, and the tools they use to help their clients move out of these patterns to finally come home to themselves.

A Breath of Fresh Air

I have become a big fan of the Where is My Mind podcast. Bressie has a special gift of being able to make me as a listener feel secure and included no matter where I am in the spectrum of the topics of discussion. So many other podcasts that I have tried just get lost because it is often so hard to relate to the host. Bressie isn’t afraid to be vulnerable, which makes him extremely relatable. And it makes me feel like I’m ok for not having everything together at all times. The episode An Atlantic State of Mind with Damian Browne is class. This is my new favorite podcast because it is such a breath of fresh air in a world that is changing so fast. Go on, give it a lash.

Really helps me!

I’ve loved listening to the podcast over the last few months! Niall’s stance on mindfulness is really refreshing for me. And the podcast has been a nice weekly reminder for me to slow down, take stock of what’s going on in my life, take care of myself, and try to be a positive influence on those around me. Thanks!
