Summer Ventures: A Recap

Stepping into the world of captivating conversations and live experiences, I’ve been working on many exciting projects over the past few weeks.

It’s always a pleasure to share my expertise and insights with people worldwide, and I’m grateful for the support shown.

Let’s reflect on some of the highlights from my recent ventures….


Resident Psychotherapist on BBC 5 Live

I recently announced that I’ll be joining broadcaster, Gordon Smart, as the resident psychotherapist on his radio show for BBC Radio 5 Live! Gordon’s new show launched on Sunday 16th July and it takes over the 5 Live airwaves every Sunday night from 8-10pm.

Dear Shandy Podcast

In a recent episode of the Dear Shandy Podcast, I explored the journey of self-therapy. From discussing what drives us to tips for handling anxious episodes, we covered valuable insights for those considering therapy. I shared my unique perspective from a decade of working in Palliative Care. Whether therapy is a regular part of your life or not, this candid conversation offers something for everyone. You can catch the episode on Spotify here. 

It Can’t Just Be Me Podcast

I joined the host, Anna, on this podcast to share my insights on a range of listener dilemmas; from coming out as gay to dating as a dog parent, burn-out, and grieving the breakdown of a friendship. We delved into the fascinating world of therapeutic guidance and covered a wide array of dilemmas – you can listen to the episode on Spotify here. 

High Performance Live

  • The High Performance Podcast went on tour recently! I’ve had the pleasure of being a guest speaker alongside Roxie Nafousi, Jamie Peacock and of course, the incredible hosts, Jake Humphrey and Damian Hughes. High Performance is one of my favourite podcasts, so it’s been an honour to be part of this event. If you haven’t already seen or listened to it, I featured on their podcast back in August 2022, where we discussed why self-care is vital for high performance. You can listen to the episode on Spotify here.

Thank you for your continued support. Take care.
