Victoria Arlen is a sportscaster and gold medallist who spent four years, aged 11-15, in a vegetative state. She was locked-in; aware of everything that was happening around her but unable to communicate, even blink, to let her family and doctors know she was still there.


She was written off with no expectation of recovery until one day, she blinked. That blink started Victoria’s incredible journey back to life. On that journey she learned to walk again, swam competitively and won gold at the 2012 Paralympics in London, competed on Dancing with the Stars in the US and is now a sportscaster for ESPN.


In this conversation, Victoria shares her experiences with me, the trauma of being locked-in, the resilience to get back to full strength and what it’s like to be defined by the worst thing that’s happened to you.

    Mandy Saligari on our addiction with food.

    1:14:22

    Mandy Saligari is an addiction expert who I asked to join me to discuss our relationship with food. While addictions to drugs and alcohol are widely known and somewhat understood, the sometimes toxic bond people can have with food is much muddier terrain; not least because we all need food to survive.In this episode, Mandy and I discuss:How negative feelings around food can creep up on you and begin to feel 'normal'.When food becomes a medication for emotion.How, when talking about an addictive process, it comes back to your relationship with yourself.How food and the attachment and intimacy process and your relationship with money all operate in a triad. Read: if you have issues with food, it's likely you'll have issues with money and relationships.How food can be used to bury the feelings you don't want to face.Why making anything, be it a diet or fitness regime, a magic bullet is a mistake.The shame that surrounds our relationship with food and how we can feel like failures because of it.The role of denial and deceit in how we behave around food.Why asking yourself 'what do I need?' is a vital question and one we often ignore.How to learn to notice the difference between emotional and physical hunger, and much more...To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/emmagunavardhana.

    Dr Nicole LePera on coming unstuck.

    1:05:58

    Dr Nicole LePera is a psychologist who joins me on the podcast to talk about how we can stop feeling ‘stuck’ in our lives.I read her book How to Do the Work earlier this year and was floored by how helpful it was and have been sharing it far and wide ever since. The premise is that by recognising our patterns, which may be self-sabotaging, we can heal from our past and make the progress we want to make in our lives.During our conversation, @the.holistic.psychologist and I discuss;Why it’s okay and actually very common to feel ‘stuck’.How we can be sabotaging ourselves without even realising it.Why facing up to the role you play in your own life can be confronting.Why living on autopilot pulls you away from the present.The importance of our basic needs to be seen, heard and to be able to express ourselves.We also dig into the empath and narcissist dynamic and why we can be drawn to people, time and again, who are wrong for us.How do know and set your boundaries and so much more…We cover a lot of ground in this episode so I’d love to hear your thoughts or any topics from our conversation that you’ll like me to expand on in future episodes.Nicole’s book How To Do The Work is available now from all good book stores and her podcast, Selfhealers Soundboard is available whoever it is you listen to your podcasts.To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/emmagunavardhana.
