Wow, do I have a deep episode for you this week! This is one for all the ladies. Amanda and I delve into the importance of connecting more deeply with our womanhood ; our wombs, our cycles and the earth and how all of this connects to Chinese medicine and spirituality
Amanda Waaldyk is the founder and director of Angea Women’s health clinic in Melbourne, an integrative Chinese medicine practice with a focus on fertility, female endocrinology and supporting Woman through every phase of life. Amanda’s practice is soul meets science, guiding her patients to ultimate health by providing a whole body approach.

In this episode I speak with the lovely Emma Sothern, a freelance copywriter, part-time yoga/meditation teacher and a full-time alopecian (that’s a person who has alopecia, or hair loss). She set up a hair loss website, called Lady Alopecia in 2018 to support and empower those going through the condition. She’s originally from Ireland although now lives and works in her adopted hometown of Hoi An, Vietnam.
Emma openly speaks about her journey with alopecia, the various challenges she ‘s faced at each stage of her life, from losing her Mum at an early age to losing her hair in her teenage years and through her 20’s. She talks about finding yoga and meditation and how this has not only helped to build inner strength and resilience, to find peace and acceptance with alopecia but to actually have fun with it -shaving off all her hair & dressing up. She’s a true inspiration of someone who has moved through the hardship and the pain of non-acceptance to being a model for others on what is possible. She now serves the community through her yoga and meditation classes, and her website, Lady Apolpecia, offering personal tips and advice and discussing the various products and treatments that have worked for her.
Another solo episode from me this week. I’m talking about my journey to wholeness so far…..I delve into some of the big experiences that I’ve had that literally woke me up to see how I was the common denominator in all of things that weren’t working in my life. And so from this place I […]
In this episode, I go solo and talk about a topic that has been prevalent in my own life but also pops up frequently when working with clients. And this topic is all to do with chasing goals, and whether they are in fact, bringing about the joy that we all desire.
Society has taught us to achieve, to progress in school, university, career, buy a house, get married, have kids. But in doing so, we can get a little lost along the way. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with these things, however, if we prioritise the box ticking and the striving to achieve and attain stuff, and still find that something is missing or we feel empty within, then that’s something worth looking at.
So instead I propose looking at intrinsic goals/intentions as well as extrinsic goals. This is where we focus on how we want to feel, and then take actions to help us feel this way. Intrinsic motives are about what can I give, how can I be in the flow state, be at peace, more loving, more kind.
Because if we don’t prioritise these things then we can very well end up in a situation with all of material things, (but still wanting more stuff) & continuing to feel unfulfilled.
I don’t want that for you or for anyone.
I know that if there are more people on the planet feeling joyous, fully expressive and living their best life, then the world will be a much kinder, more compassionate, more giving and healthy place.
So, if this resonates then have a listen, grab a pen and paper as I have some potent questions at the end for you.
