Season 3 Episode 21 – Denise Philips

On this week’s episode, I sit down with Denise Philips.

I always wondered about Denise where she got her fight, determination and outlook on life. I couldn’t put my finger on it but I always knew there was something about Denise and it wasn’t until this podcast I find my answers

Denise is a warrior, not just an IVF Warrior but as she opens up for the first time about grief.

The death of her boyfriend at just 23 years of age and the rekindling of a relationship with Mark in the mists of his struggle with addiction.

Denise has been through so much and for her to go on and build a hugely successful business and brand, be the wonderful mother and wife we see today is a testament to her strength, empathy, and determination.

Thank you Denise for sharing with us, you deserve every bit of happiness you have today

Season 3 Episode 20 – Barry & Gillian

On this week’s episode, I sit down with Gillian and Barry. This episode could’ve been done one on one but I wanted to speak to them as a couple, it also could’ve been done in many parts as we didn’t get to talk about everything this couple has been through. Barry from Belfast met Gillian on a night out and their journey took them from Belfast to Dublin, onto Australia, and back Belfast and Dublin again as they try to escape the hold depression had on Barry. Working on the sites led to an injury that started Barry on a rollercoaster true depression blackhole episodes and suicidal thoughts. Barry’s last hope was a Psilocybin in a clinical trial but his mum passed away and Barry was too sick to attend. A chance Facebook invite to a retreat save Barry’s life forever. The love between these two is palpable they have been through the wringer and out the other side if I ever struggle it’s These to you would want in my corner.
