  • This week’s podcast is an unusual one!
    Many thanks to Delamere for sponsoring this podcast.

    They tried to make me go to Rehab! I said Yes!

    Janey has often been asked over the years about facilities for those who want more support, and has not found anywhere that she can recommend. Her understanding was that most rehabilitation facilities are solely 12 step based and often don’t get the best results. She was approached by Delamere, the first ever purpose built facility in the Uk, and when she heard about their approach, using mindfulness, yoga, therapeutic treatments, equine therapy and even family constellations she was intrigued!

    Janey went to Delamere to see for herself, interviewed the founder and CEO Martin Preston, some of the staff and a former guest who is now Happy Healthy and Sober

    More info https://delamere.com/

    It’s a fascinating insight into the power of the holistic approach to recovery

  • Yet again the topic of Men's mental health comes up....with bells on!
    Janey chats to former Big Brother winner Anthony Hutton. He spent all his reality TV cash on flash cars and taking pals on trips to Las Vegas – as he said 'leaving him in a 'dark place'. He is now flying the flag for mental health especially with the aim of getting guys talking, an idea sparked by his barber shop where guys opened up.

  • Spoiler alert - Yes! and so much more!
    Dr. David Spiegel @reveri serves as the Willson Professor and Associate Chair of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine. With a remarkable body of work, Dr. Spiegel's contributions encompass thirteen published books, 425 scientific journal articles, and 175 book chapters spanning hypnosis, psychosocial oncology, stress physiology, trauma, and psychotherapy for stress, anxiety, and depression. Dr Spiegel is also the co-founder and Chief Scientific Advisor of revolutionary self-hypnosis app, Reveri.
    We discuss:
    The definition of hypnosis?What happens in the brain during hypnosis?Why is self-hypnosis so effective for reducing, controlling or totally eliminating your alcohol intake?How can hypnosis make it easier to control or eliminate alcohol consumption?
    For more information on hypnotizability, please see here: https://www.reveri.com/hypnotizability-testDr Spiegel has created Reveri, a self-hypnosis app based on his 45+ years of experience practising clinical hypnosis for a number of therapeutic purposes.Reveri offers clinically-backed hypnosis which you can utilise at home, for the fraction of the cost of an in-person hypnosis session.The app includes Dr Spiegel’s unique hypnotisability test, which gives users an insight into how their brain functions in relation to hypnosis - their unique “Brain Style”.Reveri members have overcome many challenges using the app, such as quitting a 17 year long smoking habit, battling agoraphobia and using hypnosis instead of medication after surgery.
    Anyone, anywhere can access the immediate benefits of self-hypnosis through Reveri and work towards their goals––from breaking a bad habit to improving sleep, reducing pain or stress, establishing healthy eating habits and so much more. Many Reveri members experience the benefits of self-hypnosis after a single 10-minute session.Hypnosis is the act of putting your brain in a state of intense focus and adaptability, making it the ideal environment for creating meaningful change in your life.Alcohol Free Life listeners can use this link to try Reveri, free for 14 days.
