Join me as I chat with Shrink Coach - Estelle Wallace
39:38Five years ago Estelle Wallace and I trained together at her previous gym. At the time I had a fitness account alongside my wellbeing blog (which you can still see linked to my website) and had a ball with Estelle in her natural habitat. We also both share a love for Jesus. Estelle is a fitness trainer and her business Shrink coach is fascinating. She is an inspiration as she shares about growing her online presence through the pandemic with free YouTube workouts for all levels and abilities. She is so full of life and is deeply rooted in faith. Her gentle wisdom will see you through today and remind you that you can start anywhere and start now with changing your life physically and emotionally. Thanks for listening. Be sure to share with a friend.
Join me as I chat with Brahm Gallagher -PT and lead trainer Bayburn Fitness
44:19I met Brahm Gallagher through Bayburn fitness where I currently train five days a week. He is a personal trainer and from the first training session I knew he was great fun and openly passionate about the role he plays in people's lives and wellbeing. Here we discuss Brahm’s career in the army, his move from LA to Northern Ireland and how we can show our kids by example, the best way to eat and live and move. I feel like every trainer should practice what they preach and it is evident that Brahm does just that!

Kirsty Elwood- holistic therapist and reflexologist.
58:36To give full disclosure on this chat- I cried after we ended the recording. Kirsty shared thoughts about life and how we all carry wounds which we can mask- so much so that I felt like she was speaking to my soul and the tears flowed! Kirsty unravels what reflexology is and how what we have on the top of our foot is what we show the world. Underneath on the sole of our foot is where reflexology can discover many physical and emotional elements of our character and bodies. An insightful and emotive discussion.

Join me as I chat to Suzanne from Authentic Yoga
35:40Suzanne is a primary school teacher turned yoga instructor and has the most gentle aura. You can sense this through the airwaves and the video of zoom during our interview. She explains the need for community (online and offline) as well as taking self-care to a deeper level than ticking off a workout routine or bubble baths. Your health is here and now! I have collaborated with Suzanne in the past for a children's workshop involving yoga and art. Suzanne also joined me for a 1:1 class a few years ago and she opens up about her heart defect and the way creativity helped her to manage high levels of stress. So much so that she followed her gut and the direction of her life evolved into Authentic Yoga by Suzanne. Enjoy this episode.

Join me as I chat with Louise from Little Forget Me Nots.
46:59Louise of Little forget me nots joins me to discuss how there is healing in creativity. As a bereaved parent Louise found that being creative through embroidery and punch needle she could find comfort and tune into herself a little each time she created. Healing in art is something that I am very passionate about and having Louise discuss this in depth- her involvement with community arts, the little forget me not trust that she has founded and how her workshops bring people together, will warm your heart and help you to think about life positively. Hands and help through fabric. Head over to my YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and website www.alyharte.com for more.
Working internally with play therapist Eileen Russell
51:45I have had experience with Eileen in her professional capacity at Waymaker therapy over the past year. My third son has pulled his hair out since he was 6 months old and we were at a loss of how we could help him. Eileen reached out on social media and I immediately connected with her gorgeous caring energy. Join us in this conversation as we discuss why therapy works, how therapy is not just for children and why creative practices are good for your soul. If you enjoyed this episode head over to my website www.alyharte.com, Instagram and Facebook page and my YouTube channel for much more. Thanks for watching and listening.
Why well-being ... and some thoughts.
6:53I sat in my car in the development where we had our first home. Nostalgia and a real sense of urgency with this episode. I wanted to share why I love well-being and have felt strongly about women knowing and loving themselves from their brain to their bones for a long time. This next series in the podcast is called 'From the Inside Out' and it’s where I interview therapists and people in the well-being industry who help me to unravel why life can be even richer if we do work on the inside as well as the exterior. Join me on this journey!
10:23Often in life we grumble and moan when we feel without or not enough but how many times have we looked at the choices that WE made to get us to that place? In this episode I discuss my own choices and why I have learned to deal with the choices I make... and to moan a little less than I used to!!
I Don't Have All the Answers.....
10:28Today I am recording while on location. Thoughts around leaning in to the not knowing and how I don’t have a formula but can give you the space and the confidence as I lead by example in the creative industry. Please follow me on social media, Instargam, Facebook, YouTube and check out my website www.alyharte.com for more.
The long awaited guest appearance from my other half- my husband Michael!
38:01The long awaited guest appearance from my other half- my husband Michael! This episode was both fun and odd to record- mainly because we rarely sit just the two of us to discuss my work and the effect it has on our family. Here is a cool reflection on what it's like to be the parter of a creative and how we made life work through the dark times like when I miscarried at 14 weeks or when Mike applied for a promotion and it didn't work out. Enjoy and thanks for listening.
