Not only do I want you to know that, I also want you to understand why you might be feeling that way.
In this week’s episode, I talk about the systemic gender bias that women face at work and how the daily experiences of being undervalued, unheard and not fitting in causes many women to doubt and criticise themselves, and question their worth.

Are you an overthinker? Perhaps you ruminate on past situations, worry about future events or are fearful of the judgement of others?
This re-release of one of my most popular podcasts with Tahirih McLaren-Brown is for you.

If you’d like to learn the Four Step Pause that Tahirih shared and get access to seven days of guided meditations for overthinkers, you can find those here.
