This week I am honoured to be joined by accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor Charlie Weeks.
Charlie has been a mental health professional for over 15 years and in this episode shares with us how he got started working with sufferers of addiction and other mental health illnesses.
He also shares with us his incredible journey how after working with addicts for a number of years, he ended up fighting his own battle with his own addiction struggles with alcohol.
We delve into trauma and attachment theory as well as a range of other topics around the mental health space. Charlie was such a great guest with so much incredible insight to share our conversation ran on longer than normal. Because of this our chat is split into two parts.
This is Part 1 and the link to Part 2 will be posted here when it goes live.

The concept for “Let’s Talk Mental Health” is quite straight forward. To chat with my guest in a neutral comfortable environment where we can be open and honest about mental health issues and talk about our own experiences.
Men need to talk more about Mental Health and this series is looking to address that by showcasing what others have been through and highlighting that vulnerability is a strength.
