45. Metal Work, Mental Health and Making an Impact! Tony Whately and Henry Johnstone

May 25, 2019

Welcome back warriors! This is another flip the script show, where I have invited another podcast host to come on my show and interview me.

 

Today I welcome Tony Whatley to the show!

We talk mental health, upbringings, self limiting beliefs, how we are programmed by our parents.

We launch into a thoroughly enjoyable rant/discussion about coaches with no etiquette online, and how you can avoid becoming a douchebag on Linkedin.

We talk about the essential human needs that a coach helps their clients with and how to raise yourself up as an entrepreneur when others will try and drag you down.

We talk about finding your tribe and building your tribe through service value and connection.

To round it off we talk a lot about metal work and why working with steel is so damn satisfying!

Honestly this episode is PACKED with so many insights you are going to absolutely love every minute of it!

44. Poems about love and forgiveness.

May 24, 2019

Hi Guys,

 

Bit of an extra from the heart here, I was recording a podcast with the amazing Paul Averil and we were speaking about relationships, I felt an intuitive feeling to record two of my favourite poems on the show.

They are:

I love you by Roy Croft

and

What left? by Sharons Olds

 

I speak a little about why they bring tears to my eyes and I share some of my vulnerabilities around the intimacy I share with my beautiful partner Jo.

May 16, 2019

Welcome back Warriors. Its day 5 of my Mental Health awareness week. Every day I'm going to be touching on an issue or a topic that is going to help raise BIG AWARENESS around a cause that is super close to my heart.

 

This time around Emerald Greenforest returns to interview me, on my podcast. I know right, weird. I asked people to do this because I am passionate about metal work and the creative process in healing depressive episodes. I really wanted to share with you how you are limiting yourself with your creativity and how you can start unlocking your creative skill. 

We delve into the spiritual and evolutionary aspect of mental health, why it's not all bad or as bad you've been lead to believe, and there may be some aspects of the debate that we need to be addressing. We talk about identity and the dangers of labelling, how we can progress the awareness and the help available and most importantly how you can start your creative journey today!

*THIS EPISODE CONTAINS POTENTIAL TRIGGERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE OR ARE EXPERIENCING SEXUAL ABUSE. Please exercise diligence before listening*A list of resources you can access are below the show notes.

Today I welcome Inner Warrior veteran Brian Cardoza to the show. Brian is a sex abuse survivor with a harrowing story starting when he was just 6 years old.

Today we are talking about how to manage a relationship where one of the people is a sex abuse survivor.

Brian shares his knowledge and I share my experience of being in a relationship with a survivor some years ago.

 

It is an uncomfortable subject for some and not one that I hear a lot of discussions about. As ever we get real, honest and very open during our conversation and we both hope that you get some insight on how a relationship with a sex abuse survivor isn't a taboo subject, and its something that can actually be managed incredibly healthily. We hope to offer suggestions and guidance to any of you who are in a similar situation.

Men are experiencing a crisis of identity. What it means to be a Man today is under so much more scrutiny than it ever has been, because of this Men are dying, suffering and being left at the way side. How can we stop this? Why is this happening? What needs to change?

36. Petra Velzeboer. How to take extreme ownership!

May 8, 2019

Welcome back Warriors!

This month is all about mental health in support of 

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH!

What a guest! Petra Velzeboer joins me on The Inner Warrior Podcast.

Petra is an International Keynote Speaker, Mental Health Consultant, Psychotherapist, Executive Coach, Podcast Host, Training Provider.

Born into the infamous Children of God cult, Petra was raised with no formal education, no knowledge of how the world worked and under the constant pressure that she and her peers were responsible for saving the world.

She left the Cult and experienced depression, alcoholism and extreme isolation, as a Mother of two children she kept crossing lines she had drawn in the sand.

She soon came to the realisation she had a choice. She could end it all or try to find another way.

Petra’s story is brutal and full of the kind of ownership that will leave you shaking.
There is hope, inspiration, love and honesty in her journey.

Join us to hear how Petra turned everything around to live a life of meaning, forgiveness and purpose.
