Straight Talking Mental Health Podcast with Allan and Aisling

Recently I had the opportunity to connect with psychotherapist Allan Clarke and arranged to appear on his podcast ‘Straight Talking Mental Health’, which he co-hosts with his partner Aisling. I have to say it was a challenging and confronting conversation for me, but also cathartic.

With the focus being on mental health and straight talking, Allan and I had a frank discussion around my experiences with stuttering , coming out and my failed suicide attempt. Talking about these topics was a chance for me to revisit those memories and discuss my emotions and mindset at the time. Allan was a wonderful host and despite the topics, we certainly did have a lot of craic (Irish slang for fun!).

The podcast is now live and the various links are listed below:
