213: Aicha McKenzie on overcoming overwhelm

213: Aicha McKenzie on overcoming overwhelm

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

She's a Commonwealth medal winner, an award-winning CEO, and a former backing dancer for Take That - no, we're not making any of this up - it's Aicha McKenzie! 

We hear all about how an early setback put Aicha on an amazing career path. She shares her experience of dealing with panic attacks, along with some practical tips for coping when you feel overwhelmed. 

We finish with a very moving Scummy Mummy Confession from Aicha, plus some typical nonsense from the two of us about weeing in the bath and paper knickers. 

Do check out to learn more about Aicha's new BREATHE programme. You can follow her on Instagram @breathebyamck and @aichamckenzie.
