The dark place podcast is a podcast where everyday people share stories about depression, anxiety, trauma, mental illness, and any pain that feels too taboo to talk about elsewhere.

Incredible guests, incredible stories, a must-listen.

This podcast is a bit of a kick whenever I need some motivation!

In Radio Headspace you can move away from the internal chatter and consider how we can live a life that best reflects our limitless potential. This podcast has a little bit of everything and has provided me with some much-needed support recently. It’s a well-needed break from the day-to-day noise. I listen to this on my lunchtime walks! I highly recommend Headspace’s guided Meditations too!

11. The Waiting Room with Dr. Alex

In the waiting room with Dr. Alex, Dr. Alex speaks to healthcare professionals who have gone above and beyond to care for their patients.  Alex for those of you that don’t know was a contestant on Love Island in the UK. At a time when reality stars were being given a hard time in Lockdown Dr. Alex went straight back to work frontline in the Hospital. He is a huge inspiration to me and a real role model.
