Wellness Unwrapped Podcast

Welcome to the Wellness Unwrapped podcast!

In each episode, I’ll be lifting the lid on the (often bewildering) topic of wellness – sharing straight-talking conversations with inspirational people, many of whom have personally helped me to unwrap my own wellness. I’m on a mission to share real-life, accessible ways for even the busiest of people to feel better.

  • Why forgiveness is the greatest healer
    on 10th January 2022

    [Warning: this episode contains an account of a violent attack.] It has long been known that forgiveness is the path to inner peace and happiness. And there are further, immense benefits from being able to let go of resentment and anger towards those who have wronged us: forgiveness has been shown […]

  • The story of how I fell apart
    on 27th December 2021

    Many people assume that I've always been an upbeat health coach with a picture-perfect, healthy lifestyle. But that is very, very far from the truth and I really feel it's important for my listeners to know that I have previously sunk very low. In this special, end-of-year episode, I swop roles […]

  • Why feeding your soul is key to your health
    on 13th December 2021

    This episode cuts right to the heart of what healthcare can (and should!) look like. It's so much more than simply treating disease - it's about helping people to live their fullest life. Dr Kristi Hughes is one of the truly visionary doctors I was privileged to learn from as part of my studies to […]

  • Why your lymph is the secret to vibrant health and glowing skin
    on 29th November 2021

    We all want vibrant health, glowing skin, a healthy immune system and to feel emotionally well...but did you know that your lymphatic system is key to all of that? And that you can give yourself a simple self-massage to transform your wellbeing? I feel very privileged to have had my eyes opened to […]

  • Why I'm trying not to be ruled by fear
    on 15th November 2021

    As I hit my 50th episode, I’m taking the opportunity to share with you my inner self-critic - and my fear around sparking other people’s anger and outrage. This solo episode is definitely one of the most candid ones I’ve shared with you. I really hope it helps you to move through your own […]

  • Why talking to strangers is good for us!
    on 1st November 2021

    We've always been told to beware of strangers...but it turns out that talking to strangers is a proven way to make us happier and healthier. In this life-affirming conversation, I chat with veteran journalist Joe Keohane, author of the brilliant new book "The Power of Strangers: The Benefits of […]

  • Why REST and PLEASURE are core to being a woman
    on 18th October 2021

    I learnt so much about what it means to be a woman in this conversation with Sally Beaton. I just wish I'd learnt this when I was 15 rather than 50! Have a listen to Sally's wisdom on the meaning and power of the monthly cycles in a woman's life; why we are programmed to have regular rest; why we […]

  • Lessons from a spider in my bed
    on 4th October 2021

    Welcome to a brand new season of Wellness Unwrapped! To kick off season 3, I'm sharing some reflections I've had while on a break from the podcast and social media over the summer. You'll also hear how my reaction to finding a big, dead spider in my bed has inspired me! I hope it will inspire you […]

  • The mantra I'm trying to live by
    on 26th July 2021

    In this solo episode, I share my thoughts on my time with someone who - having faced her own mortality - lives by a mantra that I'm also trying to adopt. Here's a link to an earlier episode (no. 25) "What I Learnt from a Stranger by the Sea", where I describe first meeting this wonderful lady: […]

  • Life, love and laughter in the shadow of Auschwitz
    on 12th July 2021

    This conversation is one which is engraved on my heart. It's with 92-year-old Eva Neumann, known to everyone as Bobby. Bobby is a survivor of Auschwitz. Her story is one you'll never forget. It's impossible not to be moved and inspired by her remarkable resilience, humour and lack of bitterness. […]
