Hi friends! Louise here introducing my first ever solo episode of Openhouse – a fresh, fun and real podcast that explores the amazing impact that therapy and human connection can have on all areas of our lives.

⠀In this intro episode, I’m going to introduce you to who I am and tell you a little more about the journey I have been on throughout life so far.

From childhood to adolescence, through university and into adulthood, this episode will give you some background context of my life and how I got to where I am today, as well as why I decided to start this podcast. From good and bad relationships, to career development, perfectionism, trauma, substance abuse and subsequent sobriety, this episode  is the first one in which I start to peel back the layers into who I am, and why I am this way.

With 1 in 4 people being diagnosed with a mental health disorder in their lifetime, we need to pick up the pace on the mental health discussion and I want to help make a change by getting us talking.

In Series 1 of Openhouse, Dr Helene Laurent-Oliver will guide me through a series of personal therapy sessions. Together, we plan to explore all aspects of my life and EVERYTHING is up for discussion!

Dr Helene is a Clinical Psychologist who trained at Oxford University and Royal Holloway University of London – she is amazing – we are so excited to start this podcast and we hope you join us for the ride.

We live in a society where so much is left unsaid and we so often suppress, avoid, and distract ourselves from the things that truly need our attention. Openhouse is here to foster open and honest communication along this journey we call life, whilst providing you with a space to self-reflect, learn and grow.

Everyone is invited – and I’m so glad you turned up.
