053 | Your Gut Can’t Digest Emotions


Every emotion is valid. Emotions inform us about what’s important to you.

Emotions want to be seen, heard and felt, not stuffed down in your gut.

Your avoidance of emotions is also understandable and valid. Unless you were made to feel they were acceptable, and you were effectively modeled how to be with, explore, feel and express emotions, then they can be downright overwhelming and frightening. 

When you really feel, hear, acknowledge and allow your emotions, the body softens and I can bet you would welcome that. 

The Happy Inside Podcast is for you if you experience anxiety, stress, gut symptoms and disorders, IBS, IBD, SIBO, food intolerance, elimination diets, Low FODMAP dietary restrictions and chronic illness.

Happy Inside attends to the psychological, emotional and behavioural aspects of gut disorders and chronic illness; old wounds, life misalignments, the fear, anxiety and stress around symptoms, the hypervigilence, the limitations, restrictions and impacts these are having on your life – all those conversations you’ve been waiting to have are happening right here. I hear you and you’re not alone. 

052 | Not Trusting Your Body


Your body and gut know what to do…your job is to get out of their way. 

There’s a gazillion things that get in the way of its’ capacity to function optimally and the good (empowering) news is, you have agency over all of them.

051 | Trying to be Someone Else to Feel Good Enough


If you’re striving, whipping and forcing yourself to be someone else, a different person, someone better…I hear you. 

Honey, that’s tough. Why are you doing that? Because you don’t feel good enough or you believe you’re inadequate or not worthy? 

What if you didn’t have to be a different person to be OK?

050 | You are so Brave


I know it’s hard

I know you struggle

I know you’re scared

048 | Seeking Answers to Gut Symptoms and Chronic Illness


When you’re experiencing gut symptoms or illness, especially when it’s chronic, then it’s not lost on me that finding answers is a substantial focus in your life. 

To effectively do so, it’s critical to be provided with ALL the options, information and knowledge so you’re not missing any pieces to the puzzle you’re attempting to put together.

047 | Your Gut Symptoms are the Portal to the Stress, Anxiety & Unresolved Circumstances Contributing to Gut Disorders


When stress, anxiety and unresolved circumstances are acute or ongoing, your gut can produce symptoms of constipation, diarrhea, nausea, reflux, pain and bloating as a result.

What’s more, it can also contribute to changes in your microbiome leading to conditions like SIBO and leaky gut. 

In gut focused therapy, when we know there are psychologial or emotional aspects of your symptoms, we use the gut as the portal to reach all those places that are asking for your attention; this is about resolving the core of the issue rather than applying bandaid solutions. 

We give your experience the space and time and voice it needs so it no longer produces symptoms.

046 | Intentional Action


It’s so easy to get bogged down in things that aren’t working – ill health, symptoms, stress, overwhelm, life. 

But how much time do you actually spending visioning where you’d like to be and taking intentional action towards it?

Visioning on its own is not enough, it’s just wishing. You must then be intentional and take action and begin to live your life in the way you vision it to be. That’s when it happens.

045 | Right Here With You (+ MEDITATION)


 

You’re not alone in your struggle and fear; I’m right here with you.

Anxiety and fear can quickly disconnect you from yourself, leaving you more afraid and grasping to feel better. 

Let’s bring you back home to yourself. Let’s sit together and breathe together in the knowing you’re not alone. 

This episode includes a small meditation to help you feel seen, heard and safe. 

The Happy Inside Podcast is for you if you experience anxiety, stress, gut symptoms and disorders, IBS, IBD, SIBO, food intolerance, elimination diets, Low FODMAP dietary restrictions and chronic illness. 

 

044 | How Your Breath Talks to Your Nervous System


Your breath is the language of your nervous system.

It’s a resource you already have within you.

And the best thing, your body is highly responsive to how you breathe. I’ll show you how in the breathing exercise included. 

 

043 | Catastrophizing is Just Yelling


How loud does catastrophizing sound inside your head?

Put down the desperate need to seek and search and gather more information and strive and try harder.

Listening is the antidote to catastrophizing.

042 | The Critical Element in Resolving Gut Symptoms


No matter how much you talk about the stress around your symptoms or the general stress and anxiety in your life, they’re not getting any better? 

There’s a reason for that, and therefore a critical step that must be included to resolve your symptoms. 

Join me here

041| Symptoms are a Feedback Mechanism


I’ll let you in on the best secret around; your body is NOT against you. 

And how about this concept; to honour the body and the information, messages, and insight it has to offer…including those symptoms you are so desperately trying to avoid. 

A great deal of your resolution is right here within you. 

Join me here

040 | The Discomfort Gap


When we evolve, whether it’s health wise or psychologically, there’s a gap between point A (where we were) and point B (where we want to be). That gap can be incredibly uncomfortable.

It takes time to cross the gap, and we can do it with impatience and criticism or kindness and space; both will determine the quality of our journey and our self-esteem.

 

039 | Opening vs Narrowing Attention


When we get worried and hypervigilent, our fear narrows our attention which means we only see part of the picture.

In this episode we discuss why and how this happens, and more importantly, how to open our awareness with curiosity. 

038 | Your Gut is Designed to be Affected by Stress


Stress affects the gut; it’s meant to biologically.

If you’re stressed and your gut is upset, we can’t blame the gut – it’s attending to the source of stress that will make all the difference. 

We talk about survival mode, the stress response (fight and flight) and why you’re trapped in this cycle.

037 | REACHING DEEP – The Wild Unplugging


On a recent first time solo campervanning trip I found myself reaching deep. Walk beside me as I share the insights I learnt, inclusive of fear, bliss, and stories of near electrocution. 

Watch the video, full of Australian scenery and real-time personal vlogging; fears, insights, eyes-wide-open-excitement, fully arriving in myself, the Australian bush, kookaburras and the most pristine beaches and waterways.

036 | Behaviour Shaping


Each one of us has inbuilt behaviours, and sometimes they just aren’t serving us well. Shaping those behaviours into more effective ones is deeply rewarding, builds self-mastery and therefore self-esteem and self-respect.

And who doesn’t want more of those?

035 | Bowel Movement Hypervigilence


For people with gut disorders, the hypervigilence around bowel movements can become a focus and preoccupation that actually hinders the normal bowel function you’re desperately trying to achieve.

So how do you stop it?

034 | Relationship with Food


Food Anxiety?

Hypervigilence about food?

Afraid of food? Don’t know what to eat?

The above are all anxiety behaviours. They heighten your nervous system and upset your digestion and tolerance to food. 

When you soften the anxiety, your symptoms will soften and your body will stop being hyper reactive to food.

033 | Where Can I Soften?


Softening is different to letting go. Letting go feels frightening, like a huge leap and it’s a one-time option that could go well or not, and feels risky.

But softening, well, that’s soft. It’s gentle and safe. It’s just loosening your grip slightly while you still hold yourself steady.

032 | App Update – for gut disorders PLUS chronic illness, pain, anxiety and stress


Happy Inside originally focused on gut disorders. While they still remain a big focus, the app now includes other chronic conditions, illness, pain, anxiety and stress.

Why? Because gut disorders are just one way psychological and emotional factors present themselves in the body; there are many other avenues for the body to express them and it only seems fair that there’s support for this too. It’s all the same concept, just a different expression in the body.

So let’s go through the 3 main practices within the app and why are they so important in overcoming symptoms. 

031 | You Enrich Me, Yes YOU.


Whether we work together in consultation, or have contact in some other way, you enrich my life and that enrichment is almost entirely based on my relationship with you, because of the courage you have in showing up while I hold space for you.

Incredible insights and transformations happen in this space for both you and me, which is the ultimate reward.

Come and hear how amazing I think you are. 

030 | What Would You Like?


We are all gifted the same amount of time in our week, and it is up to us how we spend that time – that goes for me too. In this episode I share why I’ve spent the last 6 months not podcasting, and how this relates to you, what offerings are on their way, and most importantly I ask what it is you want?

029 | Sitting with Yourself


You live within you so you can’t avoid you.

No more running from yourself, distracting and keeping so busy to avoid what you think you can’t tolerate. You can. 

028 | How to Determine a Good Practitioner


Skills and experience alone are not enough when determining a good practitioner. 

You want to look and feel for the “Goodness of fit”. It’s a relationship that fosters healthy psychological development and positive self-esteem and is based on the temperament and personality of each person in the relationship.

Here’s a run-down of those crucial elements that determine a good practitioner. 

027 | 4 Crucial Questions for your Happiness


To be happy, you’ve got to start with the right questions.

When you know how you want to feel, you’ll start making choices and taking actions to bring those very feelings into your life.

These 4 crucial questions will change your perspective and life for the better.

026 | Emotions: Your Internal Environment


We have the freedom and power of choice. We can be annoyed at what’s happening in the spaces around us, or we can let that go and focus on creating an internal space that promotes wellness.

When our internal environment is content, it vastly changes how we see the external one, how we relate to it and how it affects us.

025 | Emotions: Where Unresolved Ones Go


Emotions aren’t tangible objects you pack into a box and store under the stairs or in the attic. You can’t just sweep them into a dustpan or out the front door. Emotions are energy within you and when you push that energy aside, you’re doing so inside your own body.

024 | Emotions: the Effect on Your Gut


That link between your body and mind is unmistakable. You can’t switch off the connection between the mind and gut, but what you can do is create a really great friendship where the both of you thrive.

023 | Emotions – Representation of a Thought


Worrisome thoughts will generate the relevant feeling; stress, anxiety, worry, anger, resentment. If you want to feel something other than those, something more beneficial, you gotta get in the drivers seat and start thinking better quality thoughts.

021 | Recurring Questions: External Grasping


We’ve got Google, apps, social media, books, articles, doctors, practitioners, workshops, health retreats, yoga, and the rest – there is no shortage of information or help out there that we engage with every day. It’s evident that we are seeking for something more.

Grasping though has a different feel to it; it comes from a place of fear. Two things happen when we grasp:

  1. We clutch at something outside of us
  2. We abandon ourselves

If you’re looking for a sense of safety and freedom and calm, there’s another way.

 

 

020 | Recurring Questions – Why Can’t I Stop My Gut Symptoms


You’re feeling even more disappointed, upset, frustrated, angry and discouraged than before because your gut symptoms just keep getting worse.

Join me as I share with you the very common pattern of behaviour that keeps symptoms in full swing, and even exacerbates them.

018 | Scanning and Scrolling


All this scanning and scrolling is feeding in to our anxiety and idea that multi tasking is better. It’s pulling us away from our presence, and therefore, happiness.

And a note on scrolling and scanning – to the people who have the massive phone screens, we can read your feed!

017 | Pace Yourself


When was the last time you stopped to smell the roses? 

We are living a pace of life that is far beyond our capacities. We have abandoned ourselves for other ideals and it’s making us stressed and sick. 

016 | Inside the Program


All those questions you have about the inside workings of the Happy Inside Program are answered here. Here are the logistics of the program, how it works, what we do, how we spend each session, and of course, how we reduce and eliminate your distress and symptoms. 

015 | Facilitated Meditation Practice


A full guided meditation practice to get you started, or to renew a current practice. 

014 | Meditation Hurdles


Meditation doesn’t come without its challenges, and they are often the reason people never take it up, or abandon a new practice.

Knowing how to address those very hurdles will transform your current practice, or inspire you to begin.

013 | Natural v Anxiety Bowel Movements


There is a distinct difference between a bowel movement that occurs naturally and one that is activated by anxiety.

Recognising the difference is the first step in trusting your body, reducing your symptoms and experiencing freedom.

012 | Real Life Stories


Gut symptoms can develop from simple life stressors. The key word here is unresolved. Emotions are the body’s representation of a thought, and if those emotions are unresolved then the body will eventually give way by developing symptoms.

Maybe these real life stories relate to you, and provide valuable insight to some possible causes of your symptoms. 

011 | Food Anxiety


– I’m afraid of food
– I don’t know what to eat anymore
– What if this food makes me unwell?
– Which food did I eat yesterday that’s caused todays symptoms?
– I’m too scared to try anything new

Any of these sound familiar to you?

In seeking the answers outwards, we have forgotten how to intuitively eat; to listen to and trust our own bodies.

011 | Food Anxiety


  • I’m afraid of food
  • I don’t know what to eat anymore
  • What if this food makes me unwell?
  • Which food did I eat yesterday that’s caused todays symptoms?
  • I’m too scared to try anything new

Any of these sound familiar to you?

010 | App Walkthrough


A walkthrough of the Happy Inside app to ensure you gain the greatest benefits. 

  • Creating the right environment
  • How to engage in gut directed hypnotherapy
  • What to do when your mind wanders
  • Commitment is your greatest tool

009 | Environment


Your gut is dependant on the environment you create for it. Your mind speaks directly to your gut via the vagus nerve, and that communication is happening whether those messages are harmful or healing so if you want to feel better, it’s time to create a better environment. 

008 | Stillness


When discomfort arises:

THIS is the moment to stay. 
THIS is the moment to draw on your courage and wait. 
THIS is the moment to listen. 
THIS is the moment amazing things happen. 
But only if you stay.

007 | Attitude Matters


You can make new years resolutions and set yourself goals till the cows come home, but if your attitude is lacking in self compassion, it could all go sour.
