An interview with Rachel Spencer about her BeeU Anti-Bullying Campaign - Shining the light on the link between bullying and mental health

Rachel Spencer

After spending years on the big screen, Manchester actress and singer, Rachel Spencer, is stepping out of the spotlight to shine a light on a harrowing issue faced by young people and adults across the UK.

Rachel tells us about her BeeU anti-bullying campaign, launched to help minimise bullying, either in school, at home, or in the workplace.

As a victim of bullying herself and knowing first hand the impact that had on her own mental health, we talk about the pressures young people and adults have, especially in the cut throat world of entertainment and why she is so passionate for people to be who they are.

Rachel has been in the performing profession since the age of 9 starting in Oliver Twist at the Manchester Opera House, which led to large television roles in such programs as Coronation Street, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and a 96 episode contract with the BBC in ‘Doctors’.

Rachel switched between musical theatre and television and made plenty of contacts on the way.

Please share this podcast and find out about the amazing work Rachel is doing

About Deborah Forsythe 

Aesthetics anDeborah Forsythe - Menopaused Early Career 

Having qualified specialising in Accident and Emergency medicine she was at the forefront of acute trauma at The Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, eventually leading the medical team. 

In the early 1980's, she moved to London with my family and continued to use her trauma experience in St Thomas' and Guys' Hospital emergency units. 

 

Her interest in medical aesthetics stemmed from observing the distress caused by facial trauma during her time working in Belfast and London.  

In the 1990s she had the privilege of working with several of the country's leading plastic surgeons. 

Her field of expertise, non-surgical facial rejuvenation, age management and menopause, has been my passion for over 30 years. 

She has been a clinical consultant for Q-Med, a leading biotechnology company, and Allergan, a leading pharmaceutical company, a founding member of the education team of the First Master's Degree in Medical Aesthetics at the University of Central Lancashire.  

As a lecturer, trainer and expert in medical aesthetics and age management, she has maintained a pan-European portfolio for 20 years. 

 
Menopause Expertise and Consultancy 

Deb is a graduate of the Marion Gluck Academy, trained in hormone balancing therapy using Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and body identical therapy.  

Her interest in Menopause and related hormonal disturbances came from my own experience.  

Despite knowing and understanding the process, when it happened to her it was chaos. She promised herself she would find the pathways to help other women have the opportunity to change their own experience and take control of their menopause in a productive way. Through her work, her clients regain their confidence and make informed decisions about their menopause transition. 

Deb provides women with solutions, treatments and support to sleep well, feel well, be strong and healthy, to live their best lives and be their best selves - all whilst navigating the challenges of ageing, and dealing with the physical and mental issues that arise from their menopause. 

She specialises in treating patients with a combination program of Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy and functional nutrition plans. Each program is planned for the specific individual needs of each of my patients. 

Her methods have been tried, tested and shared with clients to achieve results.

White Privilege and Suicide - Listen Before Your Judge - EP21

White Privilege and Suicide - Listen Before Your Judge - EP21

October 7, 2020

Listen before you judge is key to this podcast

This podcast seeks to find out why as a white man with perceived privilege I feel I have no voice, as a white man, why I feel more connected to discrimination because of my journey to the bottom of the valley.

Why ego is killing more people, dividing more people and why we can't see through the lens of love.

We are going into the rabbit hole to celebrate World Mental Health Day on October 10th so come join us - It will be our privilege to share this with you.

On World Mental Health Day this podcast maybe the thing that gives someone permission to seek help, so please share, you may save a life.

I also want to share my book which is available on Amazon, click the link below to read for Free

Pain is inevitable, Suffering is a Choice - EP20 with Sara Goode

Pain is inevitable, Suffering is a Choice - EP20 with Sara Goode

August 21, 2020

Sara Goode

Having Crohn's Disease and Ankylosing Spondylitis, meant Sara struggled with stress and chronic pain most of my life.

It ended her career at BofA (BAML) and HSBC Asset Management, and the business that she started with her partner started when we left the city and moved back to North Wales in 2004.

She speaks about how in 2015, in Critical Care on full life support for 4 weeks, then in hospital for a further 4 months, she left hospital in a worse physical and mental condition than ever before.

So why is she so grateful for that event?!

Because, it meant she was forced to change my life, find new, better ways of dealing with worry and pain.

It was either give up, or get to work finding a solution, and with a 6 year old daughter, giving up was never going to be an option.

Inspiring lady, inspiring coach and I hope this podcast will inspire you to reach out and start your own journey of discovery.

Did I Experience God - EP19

Did I Experience God - EP19

August 7, 2020

God, Universe can you hear it?

Did I Experience God

Nothing is impossible but sometimes you ask!!!

Where did that come from?

This podcast is well, in fact I can't describe it.

As a therapist I am always wanting to learn, knowing that we hold the answers and my next biggest challenge was to transform my body.

Rapid Transformational Therapy is a great tool for this, so I have been working with the amazing Lauren Daniel Coach and RTT Therapist, colleague and friend.

This journey has been strange but our session on 6th August 2020 was far from what we expected.

In this podcast I will reveal the experience and let you decide what you think it means.

I am simply relaying what happened and what my interpretation is or in fact isn't.

Stay with me and enjoy the ride, you may need a lie down after.

Profound and thought provoking I try to explain to Tracy what happened and answer the the question - Did I Experience God?

Often the answers we are looking for are not what we expect.

Knowledge is power and you already have everything you need, you just need to know where to look, in this podcast I will share with you some of my observations and how I have being re-framing the new normal as an opportunity, come join me as I discuss....

Why Every Disney Movie is Your Guide to Transformation Success - EP17

Why Every Disney Movie is Your Guide to Transformation Success - EP17

July 9, 2020

Dream, Believe, Dare, Do

That was the motto of Walter Elias Disney

He understood people and stories about the heroes journey followed a natural universal law.

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
 
It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
 
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

When you understand transformation and education are different and that therapy is not transformation, but a therapist, coach, mentor guide is the person who can help you along the way to your dreams, like Aladdin and the Genie, Cinderella and her Fairy God Mother, you soon realise that these stories are actually the formula to change impossible to I Am Possible.

Join me on this podcast as we unpick the secret to transformation lies in the movies we show our kids.

Steps EP16 Final Episode in The Journey to Abundance Series

Steps EP16 Final Episode in The Journey to Abundance Series

March 23, 2020

STEPS - "Tragedy...When the feelings gone...And you can't go on it's Tragedy...When the morning cries and you don't know why , it's hard to bear..With no-one to love you...Your going nowhere..Tragedy"

STOP - WRONG STEPS

This episode is not about the 90's pop band from the UK, but the final episode in The Journey to Abundance Series.

I am sure many of you listen to the podcasts, read the books and go to the conferences. Many will know you need to step forward and in this podcast we look at why many people fail to live their Why, their purpose and look at how you can create a firm foothold to take the tiny steps in the right direction.

 

FACTS formula is not linear, at each stage of breaking through Fear, taking Action and Accountability, Choosing the path, Trusting yourself and others are multi direction steps on you journey to abundance.

In the Gospel of Matthew, the Parable appears at the end of the Sermon on the Mount as follows:

Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock.

The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn't fall, for it was founded on the rock.

Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn't do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand.

The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.

— Matthew 7:24–27

This story is one of ethics and growth but has firmness in the steps we should take in life. 

By "rain" here, and "floods," and "winds," we metaphorically talk of the calm and afflictions that befall us; such as false accusations, plots, bereavements, deaths, loss of friends, vexations from strangers, all the ills in our life that any one could mention, they are the sands that pass by serving no purpose other than lessons.

Steadfastness of our truth, purpose and WHY will see us weather the storm on our road to abundance, whilst staying on the shifting sands will give us no firmness of balance. The rock is out belief that the steps we are taking are for something greater than we yet know

Wow that's deep, don't worry the podcast is lighter.....enjoy

Happiness with Julie Leonard Ep15 - The Pursuit of Happiness

March 13, 2020

In a break from our main Journey to Abundance Series today Friday the 13th, which is commonly known for things going wrong, we disrupt that, because that is what we do and look at the opposite - happiness.

Julie Leonard is Certified Life Coach and Happiness Evangelist with 30 years of Psychology,
Health and Coaching Experience .

The founder of Sunndach (an online coaching programme), the creator of The Intentional Happiness Circle and author of The Daily Happiness Moment Journal, Julie is also host of the monthly online International Happiness Club.

Julie says "I’m so passionate about happiness and living life with intention and supporting women to feel
happy. As a business owner and mom myself I can empathise and understand many of the
challenges you face".

Julie truly believes that you do not have to be defined by your past, held back by your limiting beliefs
or remain stuck because of your negative inner critic and fear.

She goes on to say "I used to be that woman, but not any more, and not for a long time".

After transforming herself she has gone on to support over 1000 women over the past 30 years.

"You can take control of your life, let go of limiting beliefs, get clear on what you want and truly live the life
you desire. To be successful. To be Intentionally Happy".
