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.
[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.

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 […]
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.

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 […]
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 […]
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: […]
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. […]
