Do believe that one song can truly support you on your mental health journey? This episode will show you that it is possible and true. I invited Joseph to share his story on today’s episode, which dives straight into his mental health journey. He talks about his personal experiences through which he put together his own toolkit and how music plays its part in all of it. How one tragic moment sent him a clear message on what he needed to do next and how that in itself propelled him onto a journey of connecting and supporting others who struggle with their mental health. And of course, I asked how music played a part on his own health journey, how he uses it and why, plus what band had a massive impact on him…and he might have thrown a little challenge in there for me! Come and join us on this inspiring episode around mental health, music and some fun bits, too! More about Joseph: Joseph Reid has had a passion for loving and helping people from a very early age. He is the founder and Executive Director of Broken People, an international mental health peer support group.

On today’s episode I chat to Niki Sibera, a Food Freedom Architect and founder of Happy Hearted Eating. Niki is a wonderfully calm and centred lady, who had her fair share of trauma to work through, which she did amazingly well. Now she is passionate about using all she has experienced, lived through both in her private life as well as through her work in the health care sector, to support and empower other women to NOT use food as a mask for what really is going on - or as Niki says, ‘listen to the whispers from the pantry and the fridge’. This is a great conversation around food, healing through music and of course we cover which artists have helped her along the way to process all that had been going on in her life. Find out more about Niki: As a young 52-year-old woman, she is pivoting from a 6-figure corporate career in health care leadership, using the heart healing work she has done over 30 years to transform her traumatic childhood experiences, into being a fierce guide and mentor for women who are ready for Happy Hearted Eating Now she is on a mission to walk alongside women to stop finding herself holding open the door of the fridge or cupboard, feeling miserable because she can’t seem to help herself. Thinking she’s all alone, that she’s a total failure and wondering why the hell she can’t seem to pull herself together. In the work that we do together, we explore what’s behind the eating, to see how her own trauma monster has taken over her heart and taken over how she copes. He has learned to be compassionate with her trauma monster and would like to show other women how to do that too so that the cupboard and fridge doors stay closed while the heart opens wide and we get to Happy Hearted Eating! We can’t diet our way out of ‘stress eating’. So rather than focus on what you are eating, together we focus on what’s eating you. She leads with her heart so she can make sure the people around her know that she cares deeply, including her clients. She asks heart-focused questions so the heart can shine through – and then she gives a hug after. She helps others grow by creating a safe place – even people in the grocery store line up end up telling her incredibly personal things. They know they are safe with her and that she sees the beautiful person they are, even when they feel fucked up. She has a magical way of seeing right into people’s hearts. People feel seen, heard and understood when they are around Niki. She wants all women to feel free – to learn how to tame the whispers from the fridge. To not feel alone and desperate. To not feel ashamed anymore. Learn to flip that switch and feel so sparkly on the inside that you shine!! Let’s all get our Happy Hearting Eating on!! In this episode we cover: · What made her walk away from her corporate job · What traumas she experience in the past and what music supported her in her healing journey · Why music is medicine in her eyes · Why businesses should integrate music much, much more in their every day work life · Her final words before we wrap up the episode Connect with Niki: FB: niki.sibera FB Group for women only who are looking for help with their stress/emotional eating: happyheartedeating LIKED THE EPISODE?

I am back with a solo episode to end my birthday month celebration. In this episode I start with reflecting on having two guest speakers join my Facebook group community and share around freeing your voice and use it through advocacy. Music can truly allow us to find our voice. Sometimes we do need a bit of support with the ‘how’, and that is where collaboration comes in. Which my guest speakers Elisa S. Keeler and Rachelle Babler have done so beautifully. I am beyond grateful for them to share their knowledge. If you would like to check out one or both presentations, you can do so in my FB Group or message me for the replay link. Then I talk about the changes this month has triggered in me and what that means moving forward with Living on the B Side. During this solo episode I cover: · Reflection on my birthday month · Guest speaker’s takeaways for me · Why I chose collaboration again · Some changes for LOTBS after this month --- Send in a voice message:

In today’s episode I chat with Eric Bauberg, a Holistic Life Coach and Motivational Entertainer who works with people one-on-one as well as in groups through his workshops. Eric’s story is a sad yet fascinating one, where surrender plays a massive part in. If he did not learn to surrender, then the tragic death of his beloved sister could have had a different outcome. Yet, through being able to surrender he connected deeper with his sister and this enabled him to finally step up and into the person he is today. Listen to this incredible interview to gain insight into how to deal with a terrible loss of a loved one that turned into a journey where music and coaching come together and inspire others towards their greatest self. A bit about Eric’s work: In his one-on-one coaching, he guides self-aware individuals to tune their minds and their bodies, so that they could create more ease and flow as they move towards their greatest self. When Ben is hosting workshops, he tries to teach certain principles, certain tools, while telling his own story and infusing his own original music in there to really influence the energy, but also to really ground the message of what he is trying to say and where it has brought him in life. During chat we cover: · Eric’s life up until the moment that changed his life forever · What he calls the ‘gift of tragedy’ · Why he felt he led a double-life · Moment of his sisters’ passing & what surrendering has to do with it · How music played a particularly big part in this tragic phase of his life · The message he now shares with others around spirituality & music · Examples of how he moved from ‘fear to fuel’ as a musician Connect with Eric Bauberger Website: FB: IG Spotify: Connect with me:  My FB group:  My email list:  IG & FB: @livingonthebside --- Send in a voice message:

Life is all about getting up and try. And try again. And keeping our desires and goals in our minds an hearts, even if we get ‘burnt’ at times.

Do you ever feel numb?

Do you ever feel numb?


This time on my Podcast I share with you how 'Numb’ by Linkin Park presented itself to me at the right time and allowed me to recognise how I currently feel. Yes, as you can guess, it is numb! This must be one of the most annoying and hardest emotions to break through, yet there are small steps we can take to move away from it and back into a happier us. I hope this episode makes you feel less alone if you are in that space, too and inspires you to hit ‘play’ on songs that help you feel better. During this episode I share with you: · A little bit about the actual song itself · The reasons how I ended up feeling this way · What I started to do to change this feeling and move into a happier place Do you or have you felt ‘numb’ before?

Do you remember the song ‘Turn back time’ by Aqua? It is the title song for the movie ‘Sliding Doors’ with Gwyneth Paltrow. The movie centres around one woman, played by Gwyneth, and two storylines, showing two paths her life could take depending on whether she catches a Tube on the London Underground or not (hence the 'sliding door' title). This song got me thinking about how often we might have ‘sliding door’ moments, what we can learn from them and how to not get stuck in the loop of revisiting those moments. Join me whilst I ponder this question centred around this song (and movie) and let me know your thoughts on it. Main points on today’s episodes are: · 1:27 What the movie ‘Sliding Doors’ is about · 3:30 Why learning to make a healthy decision that is good for us is important · 6:30 How music can assist us with healing from those ‘sliding door’ moments Connect with me My FB group > My email list > IG & FB: @livingonthebside --- Send in a voice message:
