Welcome to the Know Yourself podcast! I'm Dan Udale and I've struggled with anxiety and PTSD since I was 16. I'm here telling you my story because I absolutely love and am passionate about shining a light on mental resilience, mindset, and self awareness. I feel this way because of the major impact the tools I have learnt have had on my life and I want to share it to get a conversation going that can cultivate individuals understanding who they are, what their triggers are, that it is ok to feel depressed/anxious/lonely, and that you aren't alone out there!

Welcome to episode 89 of the podcast, I appreciate the ongoing support and love! In this episode I go deep and personal as I describe the build up to my first panic attack, what it was like to have one, and restarting a new therapy journey with CBT. I hope you get some value from this episode and it is able to give you some insight if a loved one has panic attacks, or helps you understand more about yourself if you have them too :)
Internally in my own head I’ve been pessimistic and negative until the last 12 months ago where I really started to shift my perspective in life towards positivity. Up until that point I was tired of platitudes and bumper sticker remarks about positivity until I realised there is some practicality and concreteness to positivity. So this episode is me sharing my life before changing my mindset and the principles that I think anyone can pick up and adopt into their own lives to help them everyday! I hope you enjoy the episode and please hit me up on Twitter @knowyourselfpod with any feedback :)
🚨Brand New Podcast Interview🚨I’ve been trying my absolute best to get Neal Conlon on the Know Yourself Podcast for a while, we both had scheduling conflicts, wrong time and wrong place, and it felt like we not get the chance to talk. I was really lucky that I was able to get something booked in with Neal, and let me tell you I’m so glad that I did!There’s a certain wisdom that comes from Neal, I mean he is a former Marine... but something more than what he experienced during 2 tours of the Middle East, and travelling around the globe. It’s a sense of humility and a depth of character which immediately struck me.I feel like there is something we can all learn from someone like Neal who explains what it was like to come out of the US Army into civilian life, the transition, the challenges, picking up a brand new career stocking up vending machines, all the way to becoming Senior VP of a Cyber Security form where Neal travels the globe!It’s truly amazing how journeys can become full circle, and I really think that this is a story that can benefit a lot of people, so it would mean the world to me if you can first of all check out Neal’s Instagram @iamnealconlon and secondly check out the brand new podcast episode where I interview Neal!Link is - Available on Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play Music - and much more platforms!

I have done what I think is my favourite EVER solo podcast episode, I was in the zone for some reason tonight and dropped some major gems about self care and journaling that I wanted to share with you all, I got a little bit excited I’m not going to lie and wanted to release the episode tonight!😌So here it is! I talk about why self care matters to me, and the different ways that people deal with things. This helps me go onto explain how in my training to become a therapist I had to journal every single week and it forced me to confront things about myself that I had avoided in the past which was something that I loved and hated at the same time!🤔I had an epic conversation with and she taught me the value of writing short journals, and I think I might have even taught Sarah about the value of my epic long journals, so it was a win/win! This is where I started experimenting and I’ve managed to figure out a way of journaling that’s manageable and easy to do each day, called the five minute journal!😍This is a practical podcast episode and I’m proud of all the info in my head that’s come together to make something super useful and it would absolutely mean the world to me if you could take a listen and pass it on to a friend if you think it brought value to you🙏🏻#selflove #grateful #gratitude #emotionalintelligence #mentalhealthawareness #selfworth #kindness #positivity #empathy
Know Yourself - Episode 84 - Anxiety & Panic Attacks - I chat a little bit about my experience with Anxiety and PTSD to advise on some of my techniques to combat and help myself when an anxiety or panic attack hits 🙏🏻
Can you believe it guys? It’s been a year today since I started Know Yourself in my Kitchen!!! I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has listened religiously to the podcast and has been so supportive it means a lot. If you haven’t already, hit me up on twitter at @knowyourselfpod or Instagram @dudale92 to say hello so I can thank you 😄 I appreciate your attention and time and here’s to more years 🙏🏻 I hope this podcast helps someone like my dad did for me 😌
I had the distinct pleasure and opportunity last year in November to go to a Time To Change event in Redditch where I got to speak with one of the Mental health champions on stage in front of a live audience! The interview is around 20 minutes and we cover off vulnerability with men, Burning out, and sharing stories about both of our backgrounds. After 20 mins we open up the floor for Q&A and take some questions from the audience which was really cool. I hope you enjoy this episode and thank you so much for listening 😊
Hi guys! Thanks for checking out this episode, it’s in response to some feedback I got in the comments section of Instagram asking if I could do another video on conditions of worth, I stripped the audio from that episode to make this podcast episode so I hope you enjoy, any questions hit me up on twitter @knowyourselfpod or @dudale92 on Instagram 🙌🏻😊
Know Yourself Episode 80 - This is a pretty cool throwback episode to when I appeared on the Mental Health Book Club podcast. If you are new to the podcast this is a pretty good episode to catch my story with my mental health and emotional development journey and to see what I’m about 😄💯🤘🏻
Hey Hey, What’s up Lovely people??? I’ve got such a special podcast episode for you on Know Yourself! This lady I had the pleasure of interviewing is 26 and is an author, CEO of Das Media Group, Global influencer, HuffPost contributor, Speaker, advocate for Equality, and much much more. .Shinjini Das is not a person to overlook, her energy and charisma of having a Go-Getter attitude is quite something to reflect on, and I implore you if you haven’t listened to the podcast before or are a little bit curious that now is the time to check it out. There have been so many great guests recently and with Shinjini joining us on Episode 79 there is lots of awesome content to give yourself a treat with!.Shinjini talks quite candidly about ambition, learning to fall in love with yourself, coming from an immigrant background, making it in the media from 0 followers to have over 100K, Entrepreneurship, authenticity, and empowering men and women. What was so refreshing was how we chopped it up about pushing away from the outside pressures of what friends and family want for you, realizing what you want to gravitate towards through self-awareness and pursuing that despite the wishes and judgments of others. .We also talked about what Shinjini would do if she had to start out from 0 again and it was a great moment because Shinjini said it’s about the mindset, it’s about the growth instead of the things that the growth might obtain for you which I really liked..Check out Shinjini @speakershinjini for her content, to find out more about what it is to be a Go-Getter, the memoir, articles, and much more..The latest episode of Know Yourself is available on - Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play Music - and more!

Woop woop! It’s Thursday which means a brand new podcast episode for Know Yourself 😍 In this episode I interview Sarah Rees who is a CBT therapist and author of “The CBT journal”.Sarah is an incredibly well informed individual and in my mind an expert at breaking down quite complicated narratives and ideas into easy to digest chunks. Sarah did exactly that on this podcast episode where she explains exactly what CBT is, what EMDR is, the benefits of journaling, and Sarah’s background story which is fascinating! .It’s so nice to have a a knowledge expert like Sarah on the show to be clear up some areas that I wasn’t sure of and I know a lot of others would have questions about too ☺️ Check out Sarah’s website for more awesome resources! .To check out Episode 78 of Know Yourself Podcast head over to - Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play Music - and much more!
🚨🚨🚨 Exciting news 🚨🚨🚨I have a great news about a new podcast episode that I did in collaboration with Elizabeth Overstreet! We had some great comments and feedback about the episode and we were asked if we could do another Podcast episode focussed around Break-ups. .There’s so much to think about with break-ups, there’s the memories, telling people close to you about it, the music that reminds you of that moment when you made that song “your song”, getting used to being single again. Elizabeth and I talked on the episode about how breaking up with someone is a similar emotional process to grieving for someone you have lost. .Elizabeth raised some amazing points in this episode about how the period after a break-up can be a great time for redefining ourselves and reflecting on what we might want in the future. It’s a great time to re-evaluate and get yourself back into priority. .This is a great episode and I’m really excited for teaming up with Elizabeth again
Good evening lovely people! If you want a real guide on navigating self-care, mindfulness, and figuring out who you are then look no further! I interviewed Emma who founded not for profit ECBC Manchester for Episode 76 🐝 Emma was such a great person to interview because she had so many useful things to say, has a lovely personality, and is so bright and positive about life..Emma started ECBC out in a remarkable way, finding a real ambition to tackle loneliness and isolation and a need to get out of the house and talk to people in person about mental health Emma started using Meet Up to find others that had experienced problems with their mental health. 🧠.Emma talks quite candidly about her first meet up and how much it surprised her about how many people turned up! There was no pressure for people to open up if they didn’t want to, even listening can help, which I am big believer in too. ECBC also organises other events such as walk and talks where people can get out of the house to walk around the park and other areas and be around people that have experience in mental health issues which can lead to quite therapeutic conversations in a relaxed, safe, and comfortable environment..I really admire Emma’s get up and go attitude to life, and it’s not surprising that the team has grown at ECBC and the events are becoming more and more popular as people find a safe haven to talk about a difficult topic. It’s a special project and have no doubt that this will lead onto help so many people locally on Manchester and nationally too. .The latest episode of Know Yourself Podcast can be listened to on - Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play Music - and much more. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and big thank you to Emma too
Good evening lovely people, I’ve got some great news which is that a new shiny podcast episode is now available on Know Yourself! I loved the interview Alicia and I did together, after talking I genuinely went away and looked at my life at lot differently than I had before. I realised that authenticity is a large part of being accepting with yourself and happy with yourself..These are lovely words but what do they mean? Alicia talks about eating candy bars in the morning, piled up clothes where the washing basket used to be, mouldy bread in the fridge. Sometimes we don’t have it all together, and that’s ok. I got such comfort out of hearing that, it’s not an excuse to brush things off, rather a way of living that accepts sometimes there are more important things and that sometimes we might not always have our stuff together! ☺️.It’s funny because authenticity allows our true selves to shine through too, how awesome would it be for example if you met the love of your life and you could be your quirky, geeky, strange, different, and unique self with that person because you check out on judging yourself at the door.🤔.The thing I love about Alicia is that she brings such a real world view to therapy, gives everybody a chance no matter what walk of life they come from, and is pragmatic combined with compassion. I’ll never forget the conversation I had with Alicia because it made me a better podcaster, a better person, and a more comfortable with myself 😍.Working at a crisis centre is tough and Alicia explains some of her journey in today’s episode - check it out at - Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play music - and more!
Robson Lindberg is awesome. Let’s just say that from the beginning. He’s a speaker, mental coach, podcaster, and the worlds TBI patient. What’s TBI? Traumatic Brain Injury. During an ice hockey game Robson was checked or to any folk who aren’t familiar with Ice Hockey terms was tackled. Robson’s was hit the ice so hard that he was out cold for over 2 minutes. That injury would go onto result in memory loss, degraded motor function, and mental health issues. .Robson was a great guest on the show because of the vulnerability, honesty, and level of detail he goes to about his rehab towards a life that enables his freedom and independence again 😊 We spoke about Finnish culture, Saunas, training for and then completing his first Iron Man competition, the story of recovering from such a severe brain injury, changes in personality, memory loss, and fatigue. There is so much in this episode! .There’s a really key moment in the episode about 37 minutes in where Robson is talking about being in the shower after going back to visit family and hearing a voice in his head which challenged him into admitting to himself that he was suffering with brain injury and that he was not ok. It was a particularly key moment, and it was emotional to say the least. .This episode is a long one and we chop it up about so much that I know you will get a lot of value from it. Let me know in the comments section below what you think 💭🤔 Your opinion matters! You can find Robson @robson.lindberg and you can find out more about Robson on a website he is a part of called latest episode of Know Yourself Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play music - - and many more platforms 😊
It’s Monday which means another brand new sparkly podcast episode! This interview like all of the others that have come before this, is important. In this episode I chat with Laura Barton who is an author of a book series called project Dermatillomania, Laura also works in communications for Canada BFRB which is a non-profit that looks at Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours such as skin picking. .For as long as I can remember I have picked my skin on my fingers, sometimes until they bleed. I do not like doing it, sometimes I don’t even know that I am doing it. I think because it’s been with me for so long I’ve not given it any attention and even hidden it from myself. I didn’t have any awareness about it until seeing Liz Atkin’s TedX talk called “Re-imagining Compulsive Skin Picking: Art for Recovery”. Then Laura reached out to me. .Talking to Laura on the podcast was the first time I had spoken about this in public with anyone but Laura’s knowledge on the subject and her own experience with Dermatillomania gave me great comfort and made me think how useful it will be for anyone else that has been struggling with skin picking. Laura has offered me support outside of the episode and I have joined a great Facebook group around skin picking to help understand the disorder some more..To hear more about Laura’s experiences and her story check out episode 73 of Know Yourself on - Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play Music - and much more. Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts in the comments below and leave rating and a review on the podcast, it would mean the world to me 😊
Happy Thursday! I hope you are having the best day! I have a new podcast episode for you today with a lovely lady called Heidi Light all the way from Canada. Heidi is an author, counsellor, Reiki Master, Medium, and knowledge seeker on alternative methods of therapy. .This was an interesting episode for me because whilst I don’t have any knowledge about these practices and methodologies, I have my own opinions that were formed from a lack of knowledge on my part and also because traditional therapy has been able to help me. I’m open minded enough to understand that some people are helped in other ways which is why it was such a pleasure to have Heidi on the show. .Heidi walks us through what a Medium, Reiki Master, and energy healer does. Heidi chats about her book which explains in detail the ethical implications of working in the field of alternative medicine and therapies. We also talk about what to avoid when looking for mediums and Reiki Masters. I just found the whole conversation fascinating really because I don’t believe in these practices myself but love Heidi’s knowledge, continuous development, thirst for ethics, and passion on the subject. .It really was a great interview and I hope that you get a lot out of it because Heidi was such a great guest on the show. You can reach Heidi on twitter by searching for Heidi Light and also by going to her website 😊.The latest episode of Know Yourself Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts - Spotify - Google Play music - and much more
Hey what’s up you lovely people? I took a break from podcasting and posting over the weekend which topped up my tanks so that I can have the pleasure of letting you know that Episode 71 of the Know Yourself Podcast has now dropped which is an interview with Poet and author Dan Burton @danburton10 😁.I met Dan at the start of October at Worcester Litfest & Fringe in association with mental health awareness week. I was invited by a mutual friend and I have to say I didn’t regret it. Dan was one of many talented poets performing sets which included material from their own work and other poets too. Dan’s poetry had a particular mental health background that drew me in and made me feel what he was feeling. .We spoke weeks later and organised an interview in person which I always love because it’s a great excuse to eat biscuits and gulp down some warm coffee. Seriously though it was a pleasure to chop it up with Dan though because the guy is so easy to talk to and has such a passion for poetry and writing..We spoke about what to do if you are thinking about writing poetry but not sure where to start, how to get over writers block, how poetry is a great way of developing and displaying empathy, and so much more. The people that know Dan often talk about his kindness, authenticity, and skills as a poet and writer. I’m proud that I had him on the show and hope that you love the episode ☺️
