Wisdom to last a lifetime for birth and beyond with Emma Cannon

Today's podcast is with Emma Cannon, a best selling author, speaker, mentor, acupuncturist, mystic and mother who, I am very sad to say, passed away a few weeks after I recorded this conversation. Initially drawn to Emma's renowned work in fertility, I was struck by her profound wisdom and spiritual depth as soon as I stepped into her magical home. What began as an exploration of fertility evolved into a much broader discussion about life itself. I sought Emma's insights into her philosophy on life, shaped by her experiences supporting countless couples and navigating her own journey through years of chemotherapy. Cancer which is often referred to as life's greatest teacher, underscored Emma's understanding of existence.As our conversation unfolded, I couldn't help but delve into Emma's mystical side. With curiosity piqued by my growing fascination with the history of witches, I posed the question to Emma, prompting a smile and a candid acknowledgment of her affinity with the mystical realm. It became evident that Emma's ability to guide souls and find peace transcended the conventional boundaries of medicine and ventured into the realm of magic. I hope you enjoy this interview with the amazing and mystical Emma Cannon. My heart and love is with her family, and many thanks to them for encouraging me to release this interview after her passing. Emma, you magical being. I'm so pleased our conversation is finally out with the world.Follow Poppy: @poppyjamieBuy Poppy's book: https://amzn.eu/d/9PiMG3pA big thank you to Kama Ayurveda.

How to flirt with the universe with Deike Begg

This is a very special episode for me as I'm interviewing a woman who has impacted my life enormously. I first met her about 4 to 5 years ago, and since then, no matter what life has thrown at me, she's helped me process it with a wisdom like no other. I'm interviewing Deike Begg, who has been a professional astrologer and psychotherapist for over 30 years. She's an expert on astrology, psychic synthesis, synchronicity and mythology. She's a young psychologist. She's also one of the world's leading rebirths and a published author of many books, including Rebirthing Freedom from Your Past, Synchronicity: The Promise of Coincidence, On the Trail of Merlin and In Search of the Holy Grail and The Precious Blood. Her book Synchronicity is my favourite beyond favourite. I read it whenever I'm feeling confused about life, because it's like a warm hug and a reminder that life is unfolding just as it should. Sometimes all we need is a little bit of patience but for people like me patience can be a very difficult thing to cultivate. Deike has just turned 80, and I was desperate to make sure more people were able to receive this incredible woman's wisdom. I hope you enjoy this very heartwarming interview full of wonderful, wise nuggets.

The future of fertility and how it affects us all with Professor R. John Aitken

Today I am joined by Professor John Aitken, who is a global leader in reproductive biology with over four decades of dedicated work. John has made groundbreaking discoveries that have revolutionised our understanding of male infertility and paved the way for innovative treatments. He's the author of The Infertility Trap that looks at the long term consequences of declining fertility globally. I read his book earlier this year and was shocked as I turned the pages. Never did I dream that birth rates dropping would be a serious problem, as I just assumed we were overpopulated as it was. John's research opened my eyes to a very real challenge we face, which is how are declining fertility and lifestyle choices will affect us all long term. And why? A very important conversation around this has to happen sooner rather than later if we want to change the direction.This interview with John was possibly one of the most eye opening chats I've ever had because it speaks to the future in a very personal way, but also macro way. I think it reminds us that we truly are a species that deeply relies on each other. We are so interconnected and the subject of fertility and reproduction does feel very spiritual in many ways and also links in with the psychological links in with our behavior. It's just a very human topic. So I hope you are enjoying this content that feels slightly different from the normal programming on the Unwind podcast. But I wanted to open up to share some of my own personal curiosity at the moment, and I hope you're following the journey and enjoying it too.Find John's book: https://amzn.eu/d/3ajcnfVFind Poppy:Instagram: @poppyjamieBook: https://amzn.eu/d/i3E7M0b Hosted on Acast.

Jon specialises in applying the latest research on how humans behave and make decisions to transform the ways companies approach building brands, culture and overall strategy.

The healing power of grounding with Clint Ober

On today's Unwind, I'm speaking to an incredible man who has pioneered the grounding movement. This is the movement that has proven all humans benefit when connected to the earth, whether that be standing on the ground without shoes, swimming in a sea or river, or actually using grounding tools inside the home. Our biology actually changes when this happens.Today I'm speaking to the godfather of this area and the founder of the earthing company, Clint Ober, who began his career in the cable television industry in the seventies. In an age before the Internet, Clint helped pioneer the first ever cable modem and was deeply engaged with how electrics had to be wired to the earth to avoid interference. But in 1993, his health crumbled. Clint was told he would pass away soon until he was offered a miraculous surgery that was fortunately successful. Afterwards, he sold his life, bought a van and went traveling. He began to notice that nearly everybody was disconnected from the earth, including him, but wondered what the consequence was of disconnecting ourselves this much from the earth. He began to question whether this was a reason for the rise in inflammatory diseases. After years of observing the effect of earthing on people and 22 peer reviewed research studies looking into this concept, he has proven that almost everything going on in the body is different when you're grounded.Find Clint Ober:Website: https://www.earthing.com/pages/about-clint-oberEarthing Explained: https://www.earthing.com/pages/what-is-earthingPlease follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!

What is your Saturn return and how to navigate your cosmic coming of age with Caggie Dunlop

On the podcast this week, I'm speaking to Caggie Dunlop. She's the podcaster and author of Saturn Returns. Caggie has been a television personality for the past decade, and in the last few years she has turned her attention to bringing community and conversation to spiritual awakening and astrology. Caggie's debut book, Saturn Return, talks about the journey we all go through at different times of our life when things feel like they are falling apart or when life feels very tumultuous. Using astrology inspired tools and teachings, Caggie looks at how we can understand these moments with different perspectives one that understands that growth is often uncomfortable but absolutely necessary If we want to expand and enjoy our life in deeper and more fulfilling ways. I've known Caggie since I was 16 and it's been fascinating and awe inspiring to see her evolution and follow her curiosity into new areas. Her work feels so reassuring because it's true - we all go through these really difficult moments and it can feel like we're the only ones experiencing it. But what Caggie does is open up the conversation and remind us that life doesn't happen without these painful moments. But that without painful experiences, we can't have growth.

Are hormones hiding the answers to better mental health? with Dr Jolene Brighten

My guest today is Dr. Jolene Brighten. She's a hormone expert nutrition scientist and global thought leader in women's medicine. She's a board certified in naturopathic endocrinology and trained in clinical sexology. Dr. Brighten is the author of Is This Normal A Non-judgmental Guide to Creating Hormone Balance, Eliminating Unwanted symptoms and Building The Sexual Desire You Crave. Dr. Brighten empowers women worldwide to take control of their health and their hormones through her website and social media channels. When I was reading Dr. Brighten's book, my list of questions grew and grew and grew. And I think this is a sign of the fact that we know so little about our health and we know so little about our hormonal health, because I think that we've spent years misdiagnosing ourselves. And I'm just so grateful for this book that she's written and the work that she does.Find Dr Brighten: Website: https://drbrighten.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drjolenebrighten/ Please follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!

What are tiny traumas and how do they impact our mental health with Dr Meg Arroll

On today's podcast, I am joined by Dr Meg Arroll, the author of Tiny Traumas, which is a book that explores all the small cuts and scrapes that occur to our psyche that can actually have a huge impact on how we feel and how we understand ourselves. But often these small things we don't even recognise because they can cause us so much emotional hurt. But we shrug them off because they seem too small to think about. We often will gaslight ourselves for caring about such small incidences, but actually, over time, these small events can build up and really have an impact on how we feel. So instead of pushing down these feelings, Dr. Meg shows us a way to embrace them and become more psychologically healthy in the process.Dr. Meg is a chartered psychologist, a chartered scientist, an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society and has a Ph.D. in psychology. As Dr. Meg explains in her brilliant new book, life doesn't have to be full of tiny traumas weighing us down and there are tools and steps that can help us heal and thrive.Find Dr Meg: Website: https://www.drmegarroll.com/Books: https://www.drmegarroll.com/booksInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/drmegarroll/Please follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!

How family relationships can impact mental health with Nedra Glover Tawwab

On this week's Unwind, I'm speaking to the bestselling author, international speaker and psychotherapist Nedra Glover Tawwab. She is an incredible woman who has written books like Set Boundaries, Find Peace. And her latest book explores family relationships and how they impact mental health. Her book is called Drama Free, and it's a guide to managing unhealthy family relationships. I thought this subject is fascinating because there's often a lot of guilt that surrounds difficult family relationships because we feel like we should have harmonious ones. And so when they aren't harmonious, I think a lot of confusion can arise. And if you're someone who has experienced emotional neglect, absent parents, mental health struggles with siblings or other relatives, then I think you'll find this book really helpful because Nedra talks about these difficult issues in a compassionate way and gives practical advice and how you can take control of your own life.Find Nedra:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nedratawwab/?hl=enWebsite: https://www.nedratawwab.com/Buy Drama Free: https://www.nedratawwab.com/drama-freePlease follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!

The price women pay to be "good" with Elise Loehnen

On today's unwind, I'm speaking with Elise Loehnen, who is someone I have admired for years and someone who inspired me to start this podcast three years ago. I first discovered Elise when she was hosting the GOOP podcast, and I absolutely adored her interviewing style, her delicate questions and the way that she mesmerised me by the sheer quantity of books she'd read and the nature of the conversations she held.Elise has been a great teacher of mine, and so when I discovered she'd written her very own book, I couldn't have been happier to invite her on this podcast because she is truly an incredible woman. Elise is now the host of her very own podcast called Pulling the Thread. She has co-written 12 books, five of which were New York Times best sellers and she's now written a brand new book that has had me spellbound for days. The book is called On Our Best Behaviour: The Price Women Pay to Be Good. And the book uncovers and unravels the seven deadly sins that have seeped into our lives, whether we are conscious of it or not. This book would never have been able to see the light of day a few decades ago because Elise investigates oppressive societal norms so many of us accept and others enforced in a way that exposes how toxic and hurtful they are for humanity, especially women.Elise's new book is out on 23rd May in the UK.Find Elise:Website: https://www.eliseloehnen.com/Pre-order her new book: https://amzn.eu/d/0niHcU3Podcast: https://www.eliseloehnen.com/episodesInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/eliseloehnen/?hl=enPlease follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!A big thank you to our sponsors:Huel Black Edition is a high protein, nutritionally complete meal in a convenient shake.

Why "success" doesn't mean "happiness" with Jonny Wilkinson

Today I am thrilled to be joined by Jonny Wilkinson, a world leading sportsman, author, thought leader and podcast host. You may know him for securing England's Rugby World Cup glory in 2003. Jonny inspired millions and millions of young men in particular, and he was rightfully awarded many accolades, including BBC Sports Personality of the Year, a MBE, an OBE and the holder of the Rugby World Cup Points record.Jonny was the walking poster child of success, but courageously since then he has opened up about how the sparkling lights of those years were a facade in some ways hiding his troublesome mental health.

How to reprogram your subconscious mind with Dr Bruce Lipton

On the podcast this week I am speaking with the world renowned scientist and author, Bruce Lipton. Bruce is 78 years old and over his career has challenged the way the world understands the relationship between the mind, body and genetics. In the sixties, he discovered that genes were influenced by the outside environment. He noticed that genes behaved differently depending on what was happening around them. Up until then, it was thought that genes were destiny. This phenomena became known as epigenetics and Bruce has been one of the pioneering researchers and educators in this field for nearly 50 years. He has revolutionised the way er understand what causes our health outcomes and biology.Bruce is also a bestselling author and his books include The Biology of Belief and Spontaneous Evolution. These books have inspired a movement and encouraged people to rethink the way we understand the power of belief and the role in which consciousness shapes our lives.Find Bruce: Website: https://www.brucelipton.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brucelipton/Books: https://www.brucelipton.com/books/Please follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!A big thank you to our sponsors:Huel Black Edition is a high protein, nutritionally complete meal in a convenient shake.

He is the international bestselling author of Good Vibes, Good Life and Healing is the New High and has racked up millions upon millions of readers around the world. His new book, Closer to Love, is just spectacular. It has the ability to touch your soul as he unpacks how confusing love can be. Love can fail, and yet it can be beautiful and simple at the same time. I devoured the pages and it left me with so much food for thought, with questions like:What drives us into relationships?How can attachment work against love?What does it truly mean to do the self work in order to improve your relationships?Vex is able to really speak to your soul in such a delicate way that I'm sure, like me, you might be left a little spellbound after reading this beautiful new book. And he provides such amazing exploration of how we can all deepen into our connections. After all, when our time on earth is up, I doubt anyone says I should have worked harder. But if anything, perhaps we ask the question, should I have loved harder? Despite how painful and scary that might feel, Vex explores how we can all love harder and I cannot wait for you to listen to this interview.Find Vex King:Website: https://vexking.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vexking/?hl=enBook: https://amzn.eu/d/6XjB3mRPlease follow @poppyjamie and let me know your thoughts about the episode!A big thank you to our sponsors:Huel Black Edition is a high protein, nutritionally complete meal in a convenient shake.

NEW YEAR SPECIAL: Is psychedelic assisted therapy the future of mental health with Dr Brent Turnipseed

On today's show, I am interviewing Dr. Brent Turnipseed. He is the co-founder of Roots Behavioural Health, with the initial goal of making psychiatric care more accessible to Central Texans and he also serves as their medical director. Dr Brent is a board certified psychiatrist with a deep interest into innovative approaches to providing behavioral health care through the forms of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. Dr. Turnipseed co-authored the first observational study for ketamine assisted psychotherapy and this is what today's interview is about - the science and research behind ketamine assisted psychotherapy.So is this the future of mental health care? Should we be cautious about it? What can we expect from ketamine therapy in the future? Who is it right for? And many more questions I have had brewing, waiting to interview such a pioneering figure in the field. I think we would all agree mental health care is problematic. The solutions are not currently working in their format that they are available right now. So I'm really excited that there are new options becoming more widely available and helping us all towards living a healthier and happier life.Find more information on Dr Brent Turnipseed:Website: https://rootsbehavioralhealth.com/Follow Poppy:Instagram: @poppyjamieWe'd love to hear your thoughts on this episode, please email contact@notperfectpodcast.comProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George Drake Hosted on Acast.

142: How to revolutionise your sleep with Professor Russell Foster

On today's show, I have the absolutely magnificent Professor. Russell Foster, who is one of the world's leading sleep and body clock doctors in the world. Professor Russell is a professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford, and he has just written a true gift of a book that combines his decades of research and teaching to create a practical, easy to read, deeply informative book called Life Time: The New Science of the Body Clock and How It Can Revolutionise Your Sleep and Health. Perhaps the most surprising part of the book is that Professor Foster says there is no 'one size fits all' in terms of sleep. It's not helpful to think that everyone should be aiming for eight hours sleep a night, for example, or even that the holy grail is to sleep right through the night without waking up. In this episode, he explains sleep that you need is linked to your genetics and environment and can change over the course of your life. It's such a fascinating conversation and I can't wait for you all to hear it!

On today's show, I am interviewing Will Pearson, the co-founder and co-CEO of Ocean Bottle, a truly phenomenal entrepreneur who was named one of Forbes 30 Under 30, and one of Norway's top ten leaders under 30 for his work towards the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. After completing an engineering degree, Will spent a year working at sea in the Indian Ocean, where he experienced firsthand the effects of pollution on the ocean. His belief is that everybody should have the right to a clean environment and that business has a fundamental role to play in solving the challenges it has created.

Welcome to this episode with Max Lowery, who is becoming iconic in the fitness industry with his unique method of training the mind and the body for greater health.I can certainly testify to going through times in my life when I've had a fraught relationship with food, and we don't necessarily talk about these self-limiting beliefs enough. It's so easy these days to have an uncomfortable relationship with something we have to do to live. We're either told to eat this, not to eat that, or eat more of this.

134: Why we need to take sleep more seriously with Dr Oliver Bernath

On today's podcast, I am interviewing a doctor who studied with the first sleep scientists in the world. Dr. Oliver Bernath began his career studying medicine at the University of Ulm and UCL. After completing his medical doctor thesis, he trained as a neurologist at the University of Chicago and completed fellowships at the University of California, San Francisco, in clinical neurophysiology. He trained in sleep medicine with the pioneers in the field in Chicago and then at the world's first sleep disorders clinic at Stanford University.

133: How to improve the brain-gut connection with Dr Naomi Middleton

On today's show I am interviewing Dr. Naomi Middleton who is a clinical psychologist and yoga teacher. Dr. Naomi has a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Oxford and is a registered clinical psychologist. She has had over ten years experience working in the NHS and is currently the lead psychologist for functional disorders and pelvic floor health. Dr. Naomi specialises in gut and bowel health, eating behaviour, body image and helping people to adjust to and live well with long term physical health conditions. I've been fascinated by this area because for me my stress is first seen in the gut and I'm not sure if anybody relates to this, but when I'm stressed, the first thing that will tell me I'm stressed is bloating and constipation. So when I discovered Dr. Naomi's work, I was completely fascinated. I was just desperate to get her on the show to explain why this happens and teach us about why this connection is so relevant to our overall health and well-being. In today's episode, we are going to explore this connection between our guts, our bowels, and our psychological health and discuss how we can help our own healing of both.

Over the years, Lynne has been called a metaphysical rock star, the Madonna of the quantum world, the Malcolm Gladwell of the New Science, and even the Dalai Mama which is a favourite of mine. She is consistently voted one of the world's top 100 spiritual leaders for her groundbreaking work with consciousness and the power of intention. In this episode, I'm excited to really explore one of Lynne's most sold books, The Intention Experiment, to find out what intention truly is and the research behind its power. I have to say I was glued to every single page. I truly appreciated the amount of scientific research that goes into everything that Lynne explores.

131: Making your home happier with happiness researcher Meik Wiking

On today's episode, my guest is the awe inspiring Meik Wiking. Meik founded the world's first Happiness Research Institute in 2013 in Copenhagen to better understand the impacts on human happiness, inform policymakers and ultimately improve overall quality of life for citizens across the world. The research combines qualitative and quantitative methods, studying thousands of people from multiple countries to provide insights on the level of well-being, happiness and quality of life. Meik is now the author of four books which have sold in 39 territories worldwide.

Today we are going to be speaking about happiness and his latest book which was released earlier this week, My Hygge Home. As we're spending more time in our homes it's important that we realise the huge impact and influence it has over the way we feel. In this conversation, Meik answers the questions: 'Can our homes make us happier? Can we design for better well-being? And is it possible to create better homes where we not only live, but we thrive?' .

130: Hope, healing and the mind-body connection with Dr Jeffrey Rediger

On today's show, I have someone who has changed the lives of so many people. Dr. Jeffrey Rediger is a Harvard Medical School assistant professor, a board certified psychiatrist, a physician and the bestselling author of Cured: The Life Changing Science of Spontaneous Healing. He has spent 20 years researching people who have recovered from incurable illnesses. His book takes you through the journey of healing and shares stories that are so brilliant you are unsure if they are actually true. Dr. Jeffrey challenges the medical industry by highlighting research that often gets overlooked. His book, Cured, gave me true hope for anyone facing illness and disease because through his rigorous research, he clearly shows how healing can happen when the mind facilitates the body in doing so. I am truly obsessed with Dr. Jeffrey's work, his book and his continued research in the field of healing. I hope you enjoy today's episode.

129: Why we fear desire with Charlotte Fox Weber

In today's episode, I am speaking to the wonderful psychotherapist, Charlotte Fox Weber. She is the author of What We Want, a book that takes you on a journey through 12 Universal Wants and Desires from love, power, sex, attention and takes us behind the closed doors of the psyche, an area we don't explore enough. I cried within 20 minutes of reading this book. Charlotte's stories are so relatable, universal and above all else, human. This book truly is a work of art. As a reader, you can identify with wanting and desiring normal things that most of us don't admit and the blocks we often face to truly get what we want.

128: How to overcome toxic positivity with Whitney Goodman

Today I am joined by someone who leads with radical, honest content that challenges toxic positivity. I'm interviewing Whitney Goodman, an author and licensed psychotherapist who many feel is a breath of fresh air in this busy mental health conversation that can often promote unattainable positivity. She has a brand new book out called Toxic Positivity: Keeping It Real in a World Obsessed with Positive Thinking and this book really explores a lot of the B.S we see online. This idea that if you just think more positively, everything will become a possibility. I obviously love positive energy and I've interviewed some incredible people around the idea of manifestation but I love how Whitney brings nuance to this conversation. Whitney uses her own experiences as a therapist to show why these approaches can be extremely harmful to our mental health and alternatively suggests a more realistic and perhaps a more authentic way to move through life, heal and create an experience that's honest and still deeply fulfilling.For more information on Whitney:Website: https://sitwithwhit.com/Instagram: @sitwithwhitBook: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Toxic-Positivity-Keeping-World-Obsessed/dp/B09N9TP74J ---Hosted by Poppy JamieProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George Drake Hosted on Acast.

On today's podcast, I am speaking to Satya Doyle Byock, the psychotherapist and bestselling author of Quarterlife: The Search for Self in Early Adulthood. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed reading this book. It beautifully encapsulates those confusing and uncomfortable in-between years when you don't quite know if you're doing the right things. You may have expected to be a certain age when you get married or have a certain job, earn a certain amount of money but then your reality looks quite different to the plans, the dreams, and the expectations that you had for yourself.So if you've ever felt undecided or a bit disappointed that life doesn't look exactly how you thought it might, then I hope you will feel reassured after listening to this interview with an amazing author and psychotherapist. Find more information on Satya Doyle Byock:Website: https://satyabyock.com/Instagram: @satyabyockBook: https://satyabyock.com/quarterlife-book---Hosted by Poppy JamieProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George Drake Hosted on Acast.

Think like an inventor: Meet the record breaking FOREO founder Filip Sedic

FOREO's beauty tech designs deliver professional level treatments at home to build self-confidence. Filip's designs at FOREO have won over 100 design and industry awards and he's broken records with a FOREO product being sold every 3 seconds in 2017.I am not surprised the quality FOREO upholds and everything they do is obvious. You may have heard about the Luna range of facial cleansing devices. The naturally clean 99.5% of impurities from the skin fully. As a serial entrepreneur, he started his career in the car technology industry and moved into the telecom world.

Filip went on to develop his second company that focused on pharmaceutical grade feminine care products, and in 2013, he founded FOREO. Filip has changed the beauty world, democratized access to tools ten years ago, only the top beauty professionals could use. And as a consequence, I felt honoured to have him on the show today to admire his innovation and entrepreneurship. --Explore the FOREO range: https://www.currentbody.com/collections/not-perfectFind out more about the story of FOREO: https://www.foreo.com/the-story-of-foreoA huge thank you to our podcast sponsor FOREO who have partnered with Current Body, the beauty device experts, to offer Not Perfect listeners an exclusive 20% off all FOREO products for the month of July.

Thanks again to FOREO!On today's podcast, I am interviewing Dr. Ellen Vora, a holistic psychiatrist who is on a mission to break open old ways of treating mental health and instead offer an approach that considers the whole person and address the root cause. She spent nine years in medical school and then took it upon herself to research other methods of addressing mental health struggles that didn't seem to be getting fixed. Ellen learnt that there were more effective ways of thinking about the mind away from reflexively prescribing medication to suppress symptoms. She now takes a 360 approach when looking after patients, focusing on everything from physical health, sleep, nutrition, digestion, thought patterns, relationships and community to our connection with nature, creativity and purpose.Not only this, but Dr. Ellen is an acupuncturist, a yoga teacher, and received her B.A. from Yale University and her M.D. from Columbia University. And she is board certified in psychiatry and integrative holistic medicine. I feel deeply passionate about Ellen's work because I fully agree the mind cannot fix the mind often. We can't talk about mental health as this separate thing. Luckily, Dr. Vora's new book, The Anatomy of Anxiety, is bursting with research and roads for where to understand mental health and anxiety in a new way, a way that truly gets to the heart of the problem and has the power to make a real significant change.Find more information on Dr Ellen Vora: Website: https://ellenvora.com/Instagram: @ellenvoramdBook: https://ellenvora.com/book/If you want to join our Whatsapp group for the podcast and be a part of a feel good group, please click on this link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/CHRBxybXjB1D2dAg0isHwc---Hosted by Poppy JamieProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George DrakePlease feel free to drop us an email on contact@notperfectpodcast.com Hosted on Acast.

116: How to navigate life as a highly sensitive person with Dr Judith Orloff

Today it is such an honour to be joined by Dr. Judith Orloff for the final episode of Season 10. Dr Orloff is the New York Times bestselling author of The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People. Her new book, Thriving as an Empath, along with it’s companion, The Empath’s Empowerment Journal offers daily self care tools for sensitive people. Dr. Orloff is a psychiatrist, an empath and is on the UCLA psychiatric clinical faculty. She synthesises the pearls of traditional medicine with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, energy and spirituality.

As a highly sensitive person myself, I related to this book and all her work massively and have returned to it since first reading it. If you find yourself being sensitive to other people's feelings, absorbing the pain of others, and many other traits of empaths which will go on to further, then Dr. Orloff is someone you should check out and recommend to anyone you know who also struggles with sensitivity. For many years I thought it was a huge nuisance being sensitive but Dr. Orloff shows you that you can manage being sensitive better and help you to thrive with it too.

114: The life-changing power of gratitude with Angela Scanlon

This week I'm speaking to TV presenter Angela Scanlon, who you may have seen on television screens hosting shows for the BBC such as The One Show, fronting popular makeover shows like Your Home Made Perfect or you may have listened to her very own hit podcast, Thanks A Million. Oh and on top of this, she has just just released her first book, Joyrider: How Gratitude Can Help You Get the Life You Really Want. I read this book within days, laughing along with every page as she explores wellness with her own personal anecdotes and stories. Angela shares her own personal struggles with eating disorders, anxiety, post-natal depression, and generously shares the tools, techniques and teachings that helped her overcome all that she has gone through. Angela’s book is so deeply honest, and I relate it to so much of what Angela writes about. So if you've ever had these moments wondering whether you are enough, worked as hard as you possibly could in the hope it would take away that unworthiness you deep down felt then I highly recommend this beautiful book. It will leave you smiling from ear to ear, and most importantly, it will help you reach for the joy in your life that you definitely have. Find more information on Angela: Instagram: @angelascanlonBook: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Joyrider-Gratitude-Life-Really-Want/dp/1785043897Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/angela-scanlons-thanks-a-million/id1460697584 ---Hosted by Poppy JamieProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George DrakeWe'd love to hear your thoughts on the episode!

111: The path to abundance with Deepak Chopra

Today’s podcast is with someone I admire so greatly. It is but a dream come true to have Deepak Chopra on the Not Perfect Podcast. The first book I read of Deepak Chopra’s was The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success in my early 20s and it was truly life changing. Deepak Chopra is a complete legend, he’s the author of more than ninety books translated into forty-three languages.He has changed the lives of millions of people through his literary work, his speeches, his app, his meditations, The Chopra Foundation and many more outlets. He has led the forefront of the health and wellbeing and consciousness movement. TIME Magazine described him as one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.His latest book, Abundance, is truly brilliant. It was like a bath for my soul and mind. I genuinely finished the book feeling so much more abundant than when I started and the change happened just through the process of reading this book. The subject of money and spirituality is a tricky one to navigate but this book clarifies the true meaning of money, desire and what it means to live abundantly and how to start thriving in every area of your life.Find more information on Deepak Chopra: Website: https://www.deepakchopra.com/Instagram: @deepakchopraWhere to find his new book, Abundance: https://www.deepakchopra.com/book/abundance/The Chopra Foundation: https://choprafoundation.org/A big thank you to our sponsor Athletic Greens.

Wisdom Wednesday with Matt Rudd on male mental health

Matt Rudd is my guest on today’s Wisdom Wednesday and I’m so thrilled to have him. After reading his book, Man Down, I’ve been left pondering lots ever since. The book combines research with Matt’s own personal exploration about why mental health in men is so troubled and what are possible solutions. Matt is a Senior Writer on The Sunday Times, he’s an award-winning columnist and currently writes the column Man Trouble in The Sunday Times Magazine. He’s written three novels and two non-fiction books including Man Down which explores male mental health. The reason why this topic is so important to me is because I grew up understanding that men struggle with mental health just as much as women as my father went through many periods of chronic anxiety, depression and even now it can be a daily challenge to manage. Matt is on a mission to create emotional equality and I couldn’t be more supportive. He’s passionate about creating a culture that allows all humans to process their emotions, regardless of what they look like or identify as.Find Matt: Twitter: @MattRuddBook: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Man-Down-Unhappy-What-About/dp/0349424810/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTColumn: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/profile/matt-rudd?page=1 Hosted on Acast.

I've been so excited to launch Season 10 - we've got some incredible guests lined up and it's going to be bigger and better than ever! And what a better way to start than with one of the UK’s leading psychosexual and relationship therapists, Kate Moyle.Sexual wellness is a topic that is slowly becoming more spoken about and with this new liberation spreading over the globe, I thought that there is no one better than Kate to talk to about this topic. A recent study found that nearly half of 25-34 year old woman complained of a lack of sexual enjoyment and another found that people in Britain were having less sex than they once did. These numbers do sound bleak but behind any problem there are always solutions and steps forward!The wonderful Kate works with anyone that is struggling with difficulties in their sex lives, particularly with people whose sexuality is impacted by the stresses of modern life. Kate helps thousands of people recognise their personal understanding of sexuality and sexual health and takes the view that all issues including sexual wellness have roots in psychology, emotion and a person’s history and culture. Ultimately Kate’s work is about helping people get to a place of sexual health, happiness and wellbeing.

REPLAY: The path to mental freedom with Peter Crone

This is another one of my all time favourite interviews where I speak to writer and thought leader in human potential, Peter Crone, aka ‘The Mind Architect’. I’ve been following Peter’s work for the last few years and it has had a profound impact on me along with millions of people around the world. He has worked with world-famous actors, athletes and very successful businessmen, yet what he teaches resonates with every individual. There are very few people in life who are able to sum up seemingly complex ideas about what it means to be human and make all the anxieties we face sound simple. Peter Crone is one of them. In this episode, Peter explains his famous quote: ‘true happiness is the absence of the search for happiness’ and why being at peace with the worst case scenario means there is nothing left to fear. He goes on to explain how we can only be free when we are in complete harmony with our current circumstances. It's when we stop trying to figure everything out, that we will find freedom. The product Peter shares is freedom and though you might wonder how an earth someone can sell freedom, this interview will show you how. His philosophy is life-changing and this is such a powerful conversation which I hope will help every single one of you.For more on Peter Crone, be sure to follow him on Instagram @petercroneofficial and check out his website https://www.petercrone.com.This episode is supported by OTO CBD.

ENERGY UPDATE DECEMBER 2021: Astrological forecast and what to expect in 2022

Hello and welcome to a very special bonus episode with a teacher, guider and my astrologist for over 10 years, Ruth Nahmias. She is one of the brightest stars that I know and gives the most sound advice. If you’re not into astrology, please don’t immediately assume that this episode is not worth listening to. I personally use astrology as a self-reflecting tool because it either resonates or it doesn’t and I think that the stars can often provide wisdom. Hopefully this episode will give you things to think about, point you in the right direction and just raise your awareness of what we can expect to unfold in 2022. As I’m sure you might agree this past year has been a hard one. We have had to navigate a lot of changes, there’s been a lot of fear and there has been constant uncertainty. So I think we’re all looking forward to a more positive 2022! Well done everyone for getting through this past year and I look forward to connecting with more of you in 2022! :) Hosted on Acast.

96: The afterlife and why we will see loved ones again with Mariel Forde Clarke

On today’s podcast we will be speaking about life after death with the most wonderful author, healer, counsellor and spiritual midwife, Mariel Forde Clarke. Mariel has dedicated much of her life to helping people rethink the end of life and supporting their transition from the physical to the non-physical. Mariel’s interest in the afterlife stemmed from her own near death experience when she was pronounced ‘dead’ on the operating table and that was when her perspective on life totally changed. In her book, Whereafter: Where do our loved ones go after they die?, Mariel weaves the science and the spiritual to create a beautiful, heavily researched book that soothes the soul by sharing a possibility of what happens after we depart from reality as we know it. Mariel was a self confessed sceptic before her own experience but now she is here to guide us and help thousands of people realise that when physical life ends, the love that was shared was eternal, and that love never dies.Find Mariel:Website: http://marielfordeclarke.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mariel_forde_clarke/?hl=en---The code for the free product is NOTPERFECTFREE.

95: Love is not a shortcut to happiness with Monica Berg

On today’s podcast I speak to the global, spiritual teacher Monica Berg who is the author of some of my favourite books including Fear is not an option and the book we are going to be speaking about today, Rethink Love. Throughout Monica’s work she shows individuals how to create a life in which they are living and loving as the most powerful and fulfilled person they’ve always wanted to be. Her books combine her many years of Kabbalistic study with her own personal life experiences. She battled and overcame a debilitating eating disorder at a young age and as a mother of four children, one of whom has special needs, she has become an outspoken advocate for him and others struggling to find their voice. Monica and her husband co-host The Spiritually Hungry podcast which is truly brilliant. She also serves as Chief Communications Officer of The Kabbalah Centre International. Monica’s book on love is a highlighter at the ready book. Love is something which is confusing me lately as I’m only just beginning to understand the full extent of what that word really means. It’s far from what Disney told me many years ago. It’s a true honour to have such a profound spiritual thought leader on the show today. Links to Monica’s website:https://rethinklife.today/Link to Monica’s books:https://rethinklife.today/books/ Link to Monica’s podcast: https://www.spirituallyhungrypodcast.com/ Follow Monica: @monicaberg74---The code for the free product is NOTPERFECTFREE.

In today’s podcast I am joined by Natasha Lunn, the features director at RED magazine and the creator of a popular and acclaimed email newsletter, Conversations on Love. Her first book, Conversations on Love, was published in July and went straight into the Sunday Times top ten bestseller list.Natasha Lunn’s work is some of the most important work being done and it is all centred around teaching us about LOVE. I opened her book and on the first page in black and white, Natasha explains that none of us talk about love and yet still expect to be an expert at it. I don’t think I realised how complicated my relationship with love had become over years of bruising and I’m sure many of you might relate. After years of feeling that love was always out of reach, journalist Natasha Lunn set out to understand how relationships work and evolve over a lifetime. She turned to authors and experts to learn about their experiences as well as drawing on her own asking: ‘How do we find love?’, ‘How do we survive when we lose it?’. It is an honour to have Natasha, the author of the Sunday Times bestselling book, Conversations on Love on today’s podcast.Follow Natasha:@conversations_on_love / @natashachloelunnOrder Natasha's book:https://www.amazon.co.uk/Conversations-Love-Natasha-Lunn-ebook/dp/B08W9F2KP4/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=conversations+on+love&qid=1612954145&sr=8-3https://www.waterstones.com/book/conversations-on-love/natasha-lunn/9780241448731***The Not Perfect Podcast is proud to be sponsored by one of the world’s highest quality CBD brands, Platinum from Columbia Care.

86: A simple trick to unlock total self appreciation with Mel Robbins

Welcome to Season 9 of the Not Perfect Podcast! It is a total honour to kick off the series with one of the most successful motivational speakers of all time on today’s podcast. Mel Robbins has been a go to for me in some of my lowest and highest moments. Mel coaches more than 60 million people online every month and her videos have had over a billion views. Her groundbreaking work on behaviour change has been translated into 36 languages. Today we are going to be discussing her newest book, The High Five Habit which will be released later this month. The book is packed full of quotes that give you that ‘aha’ feeling. It’s full of research backed tools for you to change your mind, change your life and live your highest, most empowered, full of love existence. Mel explains that everyone should wake up in the morning and give themselves a high five as it stimulates the nervous system, giving you a jilt of energy and your brain a drip of dopamine which can lift your mood. Mel explains it in the simplest and most relatable way so it's a real honour to have such a world leader on today’s podcast. *Trigger Warning* - sensitive topics are discussed in this episode like sexual assault at the beginning of the podcast. Follow Mel Robbins:Website: https://melrobbins.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/melrobbinsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/melrobbins/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/melrobbins/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/melrobbinsJoin the High Five Channel: https://www.high5challenge.com/ Pre-order Mel’s new book, The High 5 Habit: https://www.high5habit.com/ ***The Not Perfect Podcast is proud to be sponsored by one of the world’s highest quality CBD brands, Platinum from Columbia Care.

85: Learn how to disagree with Genelle Aldred

I am joined today by a long term friend of mine, Genelle Aldred. Genelle is a former ITV and BBC journalist and the founder of communications consultancy GA\C. She is now a published author and has written a book we all need to read. It’s called Communicate for Change: Creating justice in a world of bias and it explores the missing nuisance to our conversation in the public arena at this moment in time. It’s a thought provoking book that unpacks the tribalism we see in our culture and presents a new way forward, a far more harmonious way, a way that appreciates all individuals and is a guide book to how we get there.If we want to make a positive difference, we have to know how to recognise our own biases and blind spots - only then can we understand how to be part of the solution and start having meaningful conversations. Genelle offers suggestions to help us be better listeners, readers, watchers and talkers. She breaks down the barriers to effective conversation so that we can disagree in a more nuanced and thoughtful way and stop singular narratives driving our conversation.This was such a fascinating conversation and I'm thrilled she's shone a light on a topic that is so relevant. I can't wait for you all to hear it!Find Genelle: Instagram: @genellealdredWebsite: https://www.genellealdred.com/ Buy her book: https://www.waterstones.com/book/communicate-for-change/genelle-aldred/9780281085576You can now buy my book, Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety by clicking here.

84: Braincare: How to feed your brain and thrive with Dan Murray-Serter

My guest this week is Dan Murray-Serter. Dan is a serial entrepreneur, the co-founder of a brain care company called Heights and the host of the UK’s number one business podcast, Secret Leaders.Dan’s journey actually began from his own struggles with mental health: trying to solve his chronic anxiety and six-month-long insomnia. He tried everything from self-medicating with alcohol, without alcohol, saw a therapist, a doctor but to no avail. But when a friend asked whether he had considered his brain’s nutrition as a cause, he decided to see a dietitian. He found out that he didn’t have key nutrients needed for his brain and she recommended high quality supplements. His sleep dramatically improved.Dan’s life is now focused on how he can improve brain care and he has created the ‘Smart Supplement’ to help others on the same journey and teach them about how to feed the brain for it to thrive.

82: How we can save our world with Mo Gawdat

Today’s interview is with a pioneering thinker who is on a huge mission to make 1 billion people happier. Mo Gawdat is the international bestselling author of the book, Solve for Happy and the host of the extremely popular podcast Slo Mo. Mo started his working life as an engineer and then took on the role of Chief Business Officer at Google X. I love the way Mo’s mind works because he marries the science and the logic with the spiritual. Mo does this excellently and with so much ease and harmony that after hearing him speak or reading his work, you leave with a sense of order and calm within. Mo’s latest book, Scary Smart, is another hit in the making. I’m not sure if you know much about artificial intelligence and the world of robots but this book explores what is waiting for us in the future. Mo explains its 100% fact that robots are in our future but explores how this will affect us, our mental health and the way we live. And asks the question - what can we do about it now? This book is a wake up call, a call to action, a mirror to the way we live now and an invitation to raise our game as humans to ensure that the AI algorithms that are learning from our behaviour start to prioritise kindness. So I hope you enjoy this insightful, fascinating conversation about robots, AI, our mental health, kindness, compassion and where our responsibility lies. Scary Smart is out in September, please pre-order your copy now as you can enter a really exciting competition.

80: The life-changing power of being kind to yourself with Kristin Neff

Today’s guest is a huge inspiration of mine and her research has been incredibly influential for my work. I mention her throughout my book so to have Kristin Neff as a guest on the show is a true honour.Kristin Neff has pioneered the field of self-compassion research for almost 20 years. She has developed a training program called Mindful Self-Compassion and authored best-selling books such as Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself. Her work has changed millions of lives and has proven that being kind to ourselves can improve our health, relationships and set us up for a truly successful life. In today’s interview, we dive in to her latest book, Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive and unlock Kirsten’s learnings around the power behind self-compassion. We talk about the benefits of self-compassion and how we need to develop both its fierce and tender side. We discuss how women have been discouraged from developing their fierceness as part of their true nature and how Kristin encourages women to reclaim the powerful side of kindness in order to find lasting happiness and bring about social change. I know it can be the hardest thing to be kind to ourselves, and we can get easily caught up in our inner critic telling us all the things we should be worried about but Kristin’s work shows us how dialling down that voice and turning up the volume of compassionate thoughts can be truly life-changing. It’s a skill we all need to learn and Kristin shows us how. Find Kristin Neff: Website   Twitter      FacebookCentre for Mindful Self-Compassion WebsiteBuy her brand new book here: Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Use Self-Compassion to Stand Up, Claim their Power, and Speak the TruthThis episode is sponsored by Good Hemp.

79: Are your human needs being met? with Dr Andrew Morrice

Today’s guest is Dr Andrew Morrice. Dr Andrew has spent decades as a GP doctor working for the NHS in England but 15 years ago he decided to start learning about the Human Givens approach alongside his clinical practice. Human Givens approach is a therapy that takes a truly bio-psycho-social approach towards emotional and mental wellbeing. I first learnt about Human Givens from my mother who studied the approach too and I honestly think it’s one of the best frameworks to understanding our emotional needs as humans. In this episode we dive into the brain and body connection and we discuss why physical factors can create emotional and mental challenges and why a lot of advice about health is contradictory and distorted by vested interests. Dr Andrew sifts the sense from the nonsense making it easier to think clearly about how our brain and body work together. He runs fascinating day courses which are jam packed full of learning and I couldn’t recommend them more. As Maya Angelou said - “when you know better, do better” and I don’t think you could find a more inspirational teacher than Andrew. I hope you enjoy this episode! Find the Humans Given Course here: https://www.humangivens.com/college/the-mind-body-connection-online/Find more on Andrew Morrice here: https://www.hgi.org.uk/find-therapist/therapist/andrew-morriceThis episode is sponsored by Good Hemp.

77: Harness the power of your hormones for happiness and more sex with Amy Thomson

Do you ever have turning points in the month where you feel ready to conquer the world on one day, but the very next day you feel like you can’t achieve anything? If the answer is yes, then you will be fascinated by my guest today. Amy Thomson is a tech founder, entrepreneur, author and all round wonder woman and expert on all things hormones. It always amazes me how much we don’t know about the fundamental mechanisms that go on inside our bodies every day, especially when they affect our mood, health and wellbeing so significantly. Amy has dedicated her life to helping us understand our hormones better, she has built an app Moody and just released her new brilliant book of the same name, Moody: a woman’s 21st century hormone guide. In this episode, Amy shares the research and science behind how our hormones work for twenty-first-century survival, how understanding them can help you build better and healthier routines, and why the systems and cycles inside us are an invisible but powerful force.We discuss why we need to start thinking about health and wellbeing from the perspective of a female experience because women’s bodies are different to men’s, what happens to our hormones when we fall in love and the impact that the contraceptive pill can have on our bodies. Follow Amy:Instagram: @amytstory Book: https://www.bookdepository.com/Moody-Amy-Thomson/9781529110333?ref=grid-view&qid=1613851794504&sr=1-2App: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/moody-month/id1414905792This episode is sponsored by Good Hemp.

76: How to sleep better and become your best self with Jeff Kahn

This week I am speaking to Jeff Kahn, one of the world’s leading sleep specialists. He is the co-founder and CEO at Rise Science and was one of the first to publish research on technology enabled sleep behaviour modification over a decade ago. He has recently completed the largest known study on sleep and real world job performance which I find deeply fascinating and something that is not spoken about enough. Jeff’s research and work has been read by millions and he continues to empower people to live healthier and more successful lives through better sleep and circadian health.His incredible company could not be more relevant today. The app essentially helps you make behaviour modifications all-around sleep. Jeff believes lack of quality sleep may be the most under appreciated health concern in society, and his company is working to change that through sleep behaviour modification. In this episode, we discuss how sleep is the fibre of what it means to be human and how it has the power to affect our diet, our emotional health, our ability to exercise and even our vocal tone! Jeff explains that the two things you should care about are sleep debt and circadian rhythm. He encourages us to monitor our total sleep debt over time to get an accurate picture of your sleep need. He also suggests we strategise our day around the day’s dips and peaks - scheduling tasks that require more concentration around our peaks and more passive tasks around our dips. His app Rise Science helps you track sleep, know your energy schedule, measure your sleep debt - allowing people to keep their circadian rhythms and sleep debt at the forefront of their minds. I learnt so much from this conversation and it is definitely worth a listen if you struggle with sleep or if you’re in need of a bedtime routine.

75: How your diet can slow down the ageing process with Ann Louise Gittleman

It is a total honour to have Ann Louise Gittleman on today’s show. Ann is a top nutritionist and author who is internationally recognised as a pioneer in dietary, longevity, environmental and women’s health issues. Ann was talking about wellbeing before anyone even knew what it meant and at the age of 70, she is still making waves in the health and wellness industry. Ann is an award-winning New York Times bestselling author of over 35 books and has recently added to her collection with her latest book, Radical Longevity. Her new book depicts a new view of ageing - one that defies conventional wisdom and redefines the ageing process with resilience, vitality and grace for cellular regeneration. The topic of ageing is important for every age as all of us should practicing healthy ageing habits and techniques to ensure we support our health for as long as possible. Ann does just that and this episode is brimming with information. We discuss why epigenetics are so important when thinking of the longevity of our health, how our body stores trauma and how our bodies are continuously being betrayed by the toxicity of our environment. Ann provides tips on how we can fortify the glands and ward off radiation with certain foods and supplements. While she’s extremely conscious of everything she consumes, she leads a very balanced diet and even encourages people to drink coffee (the purest kind) and indulge in a glass of wine or two! I am very happy to take that advice on board. Her book is eye-opening and while you may never look at foods in the same way, Ann is proof that her lifestyle will keep you young and healthy for a very long time! Find Ann:Instagram: @annlouisegittlemanWebsite: https://annlouise.com/Book: https://www.hachette.co.uk/titles/ann-louise-gittleman-2/radical-longevity/9780738286167/ You can now pre-order my book, Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety by clicking here.

74: How technology is affecting our brain health with Cal Newport

Today’s guest is someone I wish I’d discovered years ago, Cal Newport. Cal is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University and the author of seven books. His New York bestseller, Deep Work, Digital Minimalism is what led him to write his latest book, A World Without Email.Can you imagine what our life would be like without emails? By 2019 the average person checks their emails 75 times a day and the average worker sends 126 emails per day - that is one every four minutes. Don’t be too alarmed though, Cal Newport is here to provide us with practical solutions for learning to live with email successfully rather than have it destroy our working patterns. In this episode, we talk about the destructive nature of social snacking and how unhealthy our digital habits have become. We discuss how it plays into our dopamine response and how it’s encouraging us to become addicted to tech. However, what Cal explains is that the issue is not the content itself but the way that we use tech as a distraction mechanism. The truth is that the more we rely on technology, the more it is affecting our brain health. However, it’s not all doom and gloom. Cal talks us through the ways in which we can be more disciplined with communication. He provides us with a number of practical solutions for tackling email exhaustion, email etiquette, how to improve processes that aid performance and how to inform others about your new way of managing email. It won’t come as a surprise that you won’t be able to find him on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram but you can visit his website calnewport.com and read some of his fantastic essays. You can now pre-order my book, Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety by clicking here.

If you are someone that feels a bit sensitive around this topic then please have a listen because my guest speaks about this extremely important area of our health in such a detailed and data driven way. It was absolutely fascinating to hear how an area of the wellness industry can be so misunderstood. In this episode I am joined by the wonderful Cecile Gasnault who has been working in the sexual wellness industry since 2016 and is a director for Smile Makers. Smile Makers is a sexual wellness brand dedicated to the pleasure of people with vulvas. It was created nearly ten years ago with the ambition to bring female sexuality out in the open and pleasure products to the shelves of mainstream retail. It’s the only brand in this category that has never sold in sex shops and has partnered with retailers like Cult Beauty, Goop, Feel Unique and more. Cecile is a leading global speaker about female sexuality and the importance of vulvas. She launched a whole pleasure-positive sexual education programme called Vulva Talks for free in response to the many questions she would receive and to bust some of the damaging myths around this subject. She is a woman on a mission to change our understanding of how we view our sexual pleasure and it is a total delight to have her on the podcast.Cecile has kindly offered Not Perfect listeners a 15% discount on all Smile Makers products.

My guest this week is a fearless leader who has spent 25 years championing women’s rights across the world. Brita Fernandez Schmidt is the executive director of Women for Women, an incredible charity that I’ve followed for years that works with women in countries facing conflict and provides them with tools to empower.

She provides us with tips on how to unlock the purpose within us and how to find our ‘fierce’. She explains that one of women's biggest fears in life is that we are not enough and that we all have a tendency to change ourselves in order to be liked. She encourages us to stop waiting for others to evaluate us and to realise that we matter.Reading Brita’s book was a truly transformative experience, she is incredible and I cannot wait for you to listen to this episode.Find Brita:Book: Fears to Fierce, https://www.britafs.com/fears-to-fierceWebsite: https://www.britafs.com/ Instagram: @britafsYou can now pre-order my book, Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety by clicking here.

71: How your childhood psyche influences your life with Stefanie Stahl

On today’s show we are diving deep into self-esteem and exploring the most important relationship, the one with ourselves. My guest is Stefanie Stahl, a bestselling author who is published in over 29 countries and one of the most popular psychologists and trusted experts in Germany. She has sold over two million copies of her book, The Child in You and has been number one on the bestseller list for over four years. Stefanie advocates for everyone to develop their self-awareness and perception as she believes it is the most powerful tool in improving relationships in your life. In this episode, we discuss why self esteem is the epicentre of all our mental health problems, why we all have a basic need for attachment as well as autonomy and how the traumas that we experience in childhood (however big or small) unconsciously shape and determine our entire approach to life as adults. Stefanie shares her approach for working with - and befriending - our inner child. She explains how in getting in touch with our ‘shadow child’ and embracing our ‘sun child’, we can learn to form better relationships and become our truest self. This was such a fascinating conversation and her book has had such a profound therapeutic impact. I can’t wait for you all to hear it. Find Stefanie:Book: The Child in YouWebsite: stefaniestahl.comInstagram: @stefaniestahlYou can now pre-order my book, Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts and Free Yourself From Anxiety by clicking here.

70: The path to mental freedom with Peter Crone

I’ve been following Peter’s work for the last few years and it has had a profound impact on me along with millions of people around the world. He has worked with world-famous actors, athletes and very successful businessmen, yet what he teaches resonates with every individual. There are very few people in life who are able to sum up seemingly complex ideas about what it means to be human and make all the anxieties we face sound simple. Peter Crone is one of them. In this episode, Peter explains his famous quote: ‘true happiness is the absence of the search for happiness’ and why being at peace with the worst case scenario means there is nothing left to fear. He goes on to explain how we can only be free when we are in complete harmony with our current circumstances. It's when we stop trying to figure everything out, that we will find freedom. The product Peter shares is freedom and though you might wonder how an earth someone can sell freedom, this interview will show you how. His philosophy is life-changing and this is such a powerful conversation which I hope will help every single one of you.For more on Peter Crone, be sure to follow him on Instagram @petercroneofficial and check out his website https://www.petercrone.com.This episode is supported by OTO CBD.

69: The root of suffering is within your thoughts with Byron Katie

I am over the moon to be joined by Byron Katie, the founder of The Work which teaches people how to end their own suffering. She is someone whose work I’ve been following since I was 16 and when you begin to watch her talks, read her books and listen to the stories of millions of people who she has helped to challenge their thoughts, I’m sure you’ll be in just as much awe as I am. In 1986, Byron Katie’s life changed forever. She was 43 and had been suffering from an eating disorder and suicidal depression for years, until one day the discovery of questions ultimately led her to freedom and peace. She went on to create The Work, which is a process of inquiry that allows anyone to do the same by asking themselves four key questions: Is it true?Can you absolutely know it’s true?How do I react in that situation, what happens when you believe that thought?Who would you be without that thought?In this episode, we discuss why suffering is optional, how freedom is our true nature and how by isolating just one thought, you can find a place of truth and joy. We discuss how this simple yet powerful process of inquiry can allow us to step into a new reality that exists beyond suffering and ultimately set us free. Find out more about Byron Katie here: Website: https://thework.com/Instagram: @byron.katieThis week's episode is in partnership with Erno Laszlo. Erno Laszlo is one of the most respected, doctor-founded skincare brands in the world. Dr Laszlo was known as the person who could solve anyone's skin and even after nearly 100 years, they are still the pioneering brand for new and effective clean formulations that work.

Can a plant based diet really make you feel happier and healthier? David & Stephen Flynn - better known as The Happy Pear twins - definitely think so. The Happy Pear started out back in 2004 with a tiny shop and a dream of helping people to eat more veg. Fast forward to 2021 and The Happy Pear now consists of cafes, food products, online courses, cookbooks, a podcast and a community of over 1 million people living healthier! In this episode, I talk to David and Stephen about their new book, The Happy Health Plan, which is packed full of mouthwatering plant-based recipes and lifestyle tips to help you feel healthier and happier. They explain why calories from whole foods will fill you up and nourish your body in a way that refined and processed foods never will and why eating a more plant based diet will have a catalytic effect on so many aspects of your life. What I loved more than anything was their positive attitude towards food and how it’s not about being perfect, it’s about doing your best. An attitude we should adopt with everything in life.

FOUNDER STORIES: How the founder of FIJI water changed his life through Turmeric and Wakaya Perfection with David Gilmour

This interview today is a very special one because it’s extremely rare I get the chance speak to individuals who have nearly lived a century on this earth and are willing to share advice and wisdom with us all. My guest this week is David Gilmour who is a serial entrepreneur and at the age of 90 is still pioneering new areas of the health industry. David is the founder of FIJI water, one of the most famous bottled water brands in the world and in light of his work exporting Fiji water, was awarded one of the most prestigious awards being The Order of Fiji by the president of FIJI for his philanthropic and commercial achievements in the country. Once FIJI water was sold, he didn’t stop but began his next mission, to create a company that was an answer to his most burning question, “what has the power to support and transform health the most?” The answer came and in this episode, David educates us about his discoveries, like finding out about the power of turmeric and its ability to reduce inflammation, and learning about the secret power of Kava in calming stressed minds. These learnings along with other findings on healing natural ingredients turned into his latest venture, www.wakaya.com. David, through Wakaya Perfection has dedicated his life to ensuring more people can benefit from high quality root ingredients to transform their health like he has done. He realised that FIJI’s volcanic nutrient rich soil had the capability to create the highest grade possible to ensure maximum impact on the body and immune system. Please learn more about Wakaya Perfection here: www.wakaya.comUse the discount HNP30 for 30% discount on either www.wakaya.com or Amazon UK for better shipping rates.

52. How is cultural change affecting behaviour and our mental health with Dr Robert Gilman

On today’s episode I am joined by the absolutely fascinating, Dr Robert Gilman. Dr Robert Gilman is an astrophysicist, sustainability pioneer and someone who most definitely qualifies as a cultural “change-agent”. He is now on a mission to help communities around the world understand cultural transitions and encourages everyone to embody practices that will lead to a humane and sustainable future.He discusses how this requires more understanding and talks about how we should all embody what he calls the 3 harmonies:- The harmony within ourselves- The harmony with others- The harmony with natureRobert’s passion for a sustainable world is also passed on through his course, Bright Future Now where he teaches his students how to put into practice these 3 harmonies and gain tools for the journey from the Empire Era into the Planetary Era (he explains these eras in the podcast). After speaking with Robert, I was blown away by his knowledge and his outlook on life and highly recommend you to go to his website (context.org) to find out more.A little bit about the NOT PERFECT podcast.

This week's show is diving into one of those books, Maybe You Should Talk To Someone with the author Lori Gottlieb. In the show we discuss letting go of the past, breaking patterns, heartbreak, love and managing life. Most importantly we discuss why therapy is so powerful!Lori Gottlieb is a psychotherapist and author of the New York Times bestseller Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, which is being adapted as a television series.

32: How to let go of the past with mindset coach Polly Bateman

On today's show, I interview Mindset & Performance Coach, Author and Thought Leader Polly Bateman. In today’s episode we are talking about how you can let go of the past, especially loosen the grip to all those "should of, would have, could have, if only..." thoughts. We are the sum of our past experiences but our future doesn’t need to be. I hope you enjoy todays chat, Polly has helped me along my journey and I hope she does the same for you. This interview was recorded before the protests and that is why they aren't mentioned, more interviews to come on that. I purposely had a break last week from uploading my show to honour the Black Lives Matter movement. I am committed to do all that I can do ensure we live in an anti-racist society.
