Science of Success 

“The Science of Success is a #1 New & Noteworthy podcast about exploring ways to improve your decision-making, understand your mind and how psychology rules the world around you, and learn from experts and thought leaders about ways we can become better versions of ourselves.”

The Psychology Podcast 

“The Psychology Podcast with Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman gives you insights into the mind, brain, behaviour and creativity. Each episode will feature a guest who will stimulate your mind, and give you a greater understanding of yourself, others, and the world we live in. Hopefully, we’ll also provide a glimpse into human possibility!”

Anxiety Slayers 

“The stigma around anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges creates a disconnect which does great damage. We need to bridge that gap with a kind connection.

Understanding doesn’t mean full comprehension. It doesn’t mean computing and trying to fix it. It means understanding that somebody you care about is going through something very difficult. Anxiety is confusing and life ruining, we don’t need people trying to fix us, we need people to be with us and hear us without judgement.

Judgement makes people withdraw, that’s the last thing we need.” – Anxiety Slayers

“Understanding means being there. Understanding means hearing and caring without judgment.”
