  • The day I nearly killed people
    on 9 July 2024

    In this episode, I share a story from my past which nearly resulted in tragedy - for me and for many others. I'm very aware how fortunate I am to be here, alive and well, to share this with you […]

  • The menopause - and a new beginning
    on 25 June 2024

    Here are my honest reflections on the perimenopause and menopause - and what I wish that all women knew. I share the ways that I'm preparing for this transition - and the many ways that I used to sabotage my body's ability to balance itself. I'm glad I know better now. I hope this episode […]

  • Why I'm choosing light over darkness
    on 11 June 2024

    It's been a long time since I've showed up here....much longer than I'd planned. I've lived through the darkest days - and also the lightest. I'm now a grandmother, which has given me a whole new perspective on life. I hope my thoughts on this prompt you too to relook at your North Star. Do get in […]

  • The antidote to feeling frazzled (and why I'm going quiet)
    on 27 July 2023

    In this (the final episode in this season of Midlife Illuminated) I share something that every woman needs. Particularly in midlife, when we are overwhelmed by the needs of others. It's the need to return to ourselves. In the classic book Women Who Run With The Wolves, this is described as […]

  • Why I'm refusing to be a martyr
    on 13 July 2023

    Women have always been conditioned to put their own wellbeing last. Research shows that their pets get better care than they do. Pets are wonderful companions: they need and deserve our care. But don't we deserve some care too? Research has also shown that this "me-last" conditioning leads to […]

  • The secret to ENJOYING getting healthy
    on 2 July 2023

    Getting yourself healthy doesn't have to be hard work. It can actually be, yes, pleasurable! Here's my Peppermint Tea chat with Katy Grele, a 51-year-old mum who has come through breast cancer. Katy wasn't interested in doing any more short-lived, quick-fix diet plans. She wanted to adopt healthy […]

  • Why I'm thinking about the end of my life
    on 15 June 2023

    Ever tried a quick-fix way to lose weight or feel better or look younger? Ever tried a wellness gimmick that promised overnight miracles? We need to think beyond the short-term. We need to think about how we'd like to feel and live in the last years of our life. I hope this episode gives you a […]

  • Women and burnout: why we can't go on like this
    on 1 June 2023

    There's a crisis amongst women at work. Burnout is the no. 1 reason why women are leaving (or planning to leave) their job. I've been there myself. My mental and physical health suffered when I tried to juggle a high-stress PR job with caring for very young children. I talk through why we're at […]

  • What I learnt in Greece - and why we've misunderstood "diet"
    on 18 May 2023

    I'm just back from a sailing holiday in Greece. It rained a lot...but at least the food was fabulous. I thought I'd share with you what I've learnt about the fabled "Mediterranean diet". As you'll hear, food is SO much more than fuel - and the Mediterranean diet is SO much more than what's on our […]
