Happiful and Counselling Directory, have launched a new season of the mental health focused podcast, I am. I have.

Listen to I am. I have here

Behavioural Change Specialist and author Shahroo Izadi, writer and model Jamie Windust, body confidence coach Michelle Elman and clinical hypnotherapist Fiona Lamb, are just a few of the guests sharing their three I am’s and one I have, on the new season of the podcast.

Now in its third season, I am. I have invites guests to share their life passions as well as their own experiences with mental health and illness. The podcast reflects Happiful’s ethos that while we all have mental health, and some of us will experience, or live with mental illness it doesn’t define who we are.

At the heart of Happiful and the podcast is the belief that talking about mental health can have a positive ripple effect and help to remove remaining stigmas around reaching out and talking to others.

The first two series of I am. I have featured interviews with Estée Lalonde, Rose McGowan, Munroe Bergdorf, Life Coach Ben Bidwell, Book of Man Editor Martin Robinson, Therapist Dr Lee Valls, Nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert, and Happiful Columnist Grace Victory.

Episodes are released every Monday, and you can subscribe to I am. I have, here.
