“just keep going, like you have totally got this. If it’s your soul calling and you will know whether it is a not… If you wake up every day and you think oh God, I really wish I was in a job maybe you need to go get a job again. And that’s actually okay as well. Because I think that’s the other thing a lot of the time being an entrepreneur isn’t necessarily for everyone.

Ep. 14: Things I Wish I'd Known with Rachael Welford

Read more

This is the last episode of season 1! I’m so grateful to everyone who has listened and supported this podcast so far and can not wait to come back with season two in 2020. 

During this episode I share some of the things I wish I’d known over the last year and also over my lifetime. I want to share with you that no matter how bad you think it is, you can make positive changes in your life and improve your mental health. 

I talk about how terrifying it is to lose your mind, how to help yourself if you’ve suffered or are currently suffering from depression or anxiety and the steps I took in order to begin to reprogram my negative mindset and step into a more positive and purposeful life.

How tough it is to start a gratitude practise when you’re in the midst of depression. How to begin to build self awareness and follow your inner voice, sharing the step by step things that I did in order to get myself out of bed and back to living life.

Booze, Burnout, and Mental Health, with Rachael Welford

Read more

The first episode of Season 2 is an interview with Rachael Welford of Welford Wellbeing, a British healer and energy worker who's only dream as a kid was "to be a raver when I grew up." Rachael shares her story of gravitating towards a work-hard-play-hard lifestyle as a way of medicating underlying mental health issues, and the breakdown that eventually led to her getting "sober curious" and quitting drinking for good.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What people mean when they say they don't "trust" non-drinkers

  • Why drinking is so normalized in our culture

  • "Burnout" as a sign that an underlying mental health issue needs to be addressed

  • Why it is time to de-stigmatize depression

  • Healing from trauma and thriving in recovery

  • How to create healthy new habits that support our mental and emotional wellbeing

You can learn more about Rachael and her work at

Episode 6: Recovering from a Breakdown, Healing with Alternative Therapies and Life After Anxiety with Rachael Welford of Welford Wellbeing

Read more

This week I'm talking to Rachael Welford of Welford Wellbeing. Five years ago Rachael hit rock bottom when she experienced a breakdown and her entire life changed. Up until her breakdown, Rachael had been partying, working a million miles per hour and was self-medicating - all the while with severe anxiety.

Following her breakdown, Rachael spent nine months recovering, and in that time, found support from medication, the Samaritans, therapy and eventually alternative healing. As a result of her experience, Rachael now runs Welford Wellbeing; a space where she supports and heals others through reiki, sound therapy and tapping, also known as the emotional freedom technique.

Rachael and I get pretty deep on this episode; we're talking wanting a break by any means possible (even being hospitalised), just how bad anxiety can feel in the work place when you don't know how to tell people what you're feeling and how Rachael found finally peace with her mind.
