  • Dr Ramani Durvasula | How to Survive a Narcissist.

    01:08:52
    What is the impact of narcissistic abuse? And can you ever recover? Dr Ramani Durvasual is arguably the world's leading expert on narcissism and her books and YouTube channel are testament to her breadth of knowledge on the topic. However, while defining, describing and identifying narcissism has become a widespread pastime, how actually to recover from the effects of narcissistic abuse is much less talked about - until now.Dr Ramani's latest book It's Not You: How to Identify and Heal from Narcissistic People delves into how to put yourself back together, how to be wise to and avoid gaslighting and how to navigate the world without being sucked into narcissist's gravitational pull.On her first visit to the podcast, Dr Ramani helped me realised my role as an enabler and in this conversation we discuss how to build the emotional toolkit required to navigate a world with difficult people.To join the Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Watch clips from the podcast >> Youtube | The Emma Guns ShowSign up for my newsletter here >> Newsletter.Subscribe now.

  • Amanda Lamb | Reaching Your Potential and loving your 50s

    01:04:58
    You always have a good time with Amanda Lamb. That's been my experience since knowing her; she always leaves me laughing, is the first to give you a sideways look about an in-joke and is makes you feel amazing for having spent time in her company. So how wonderful to have committed her genuine friendship and authenticity to audio in this conversation where we discuss how she felt invisible in her 40s and is now loving her 50s, being numbed by anti-anxiety medication and the dreams and aspirations she still wants to achieve.To join the Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Watch clips from the podcast >> Youtube | The Emma Guns ShowSign up for my newsletter here >> Newsletter.Subscribe now.

    January seemed to go on forever and it might be why so many of us are feeling depleted, tired and burnt out before the first month was over, but in this episode I share what I think might be a useful way to re-frame how you look at productivity and avoid burnout and exhaustion altogether.To join the Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Watch clips from the podcast >> Youtube | The Emma Guns ShowSign up for my newsletter here >> Newsletter.Subscribe now.

    Stacey Duguid has my heart after this conversation. We have many mutual friends but this was our first proper chat and, as you'll hear, it's exactly that - a searingly honest get-to-you-know-you conversation that just so happened to be committed to audio. I love an open guest who isn't afraid to tell it how it is and that's exactly what Stacey is.From navigating infidelity, divorce, unhappy relationships, mental and emotional breakdowns, going back to bed, losing friends on the way, the discomfort of mid-life and what it really means to be neurodivergent in the world... This is a wide-ranging conversation and I sincerely hope you love it!To join the Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Watch clips from the podcast >> Youtube | The Emma Guns ShowSign up for my newsletter here >> Newsletter.Subscribe now.
