By The Centre for Emotional Health
Join Peter Leonard, Chief Executive of the Centre for Emotional Health, and his notable guests as they share their coping mechanisms for emotionally challenging experiences including anxiety, stage fright, loneliness, addiction and fatigue.
Their challenges could be ongoing, or in the distant past, but each guest talks reflectively and with emotion about its impact. As the podcast grows, the emotional toolkit gets bigger with suggestions and tools that might work for you.
Emotional health is related to but different from mental health. Good emotional health can help you manage periods of poor mental health as well as the ups and down of everyday life. So, if you’re interested in living a more emotionally healthy life or want to know more about coping in difficult times, Emotionally Speaking will help you understand your emotions, how you relate to your emotional self, and other people.
