Season 1, Ep. 119

Hear Me, See Me Podcast with Catherine Flay, CEO of Restart-Lives.


Catherine Flay is the CEO of Restart Lives, a small London homelessness charity operating in East and West London with the aim of breaking the cycle of homelessness. Before taking up the role, Catherine was Operations Lead at the Institute of Art and Ideas, and previously an academic at Cambridge University and Birkbeck.


This episode is a perfect example of when I enjoy it as much as listeners and subscribers do. Podcasts are a wonderful opportunity of getting to know someone who you may see a lot of but not always have the time to really sit down and have a good conversation.


I really respect Catherine and the charity she heads and am grateful to have the chance to shine a light on her and the great work they do.

    Hear Me, See Me Podcast with Gary Hayes, Co-Founder of PTSD999.As a diagnosed PTSD sufferer, I was excited to have Gary Hayes from PTSD999 on the podcast. It was everything I expected and more. We had an amazing chat and at the end felt we had made a really brotherly bond. PTSD999 was set up in 2015 by friends Gary and Simon, both of whom served within the Military and Public Sector. As a result of their duties both have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They realised that there wasn't any widely available accessible support for those serving, or who had served, within the Emergency Services, and their families, living with PTSD.So they set about creating an organisation that could provide support, source and fund treatment, training and raise awareness of the impact PTSD has on a persons life.PTSD999 has been operating as a not-for profit social enterprise since formation.​We are committed to supporting our Emergency Service workers and our aim is to ensure that awareness of PTSD within the Emergency Services grows and the Stigma associated with it, and other mental health conditions, is broken. Please enjoy, subscribe and share.PTSD999 website : https://www.ptsd-999.com/Support email : support@ptsd999.org.ukCheck out the video Brocken Glass on the PTSD999 website.Our links :https://www.haircuts4homeless.com/https://www.instagram.com/svnty6beats/https://www.instagram.com/dvsy_artography/Thank you to our wonderful podcast sponsors Zenoti and L'Oréal.

    Hear Me, See Me Podcast with Michelle Fairley, Game of Thrones / Gangs of London.Michelle was born in July 1965, in Northern Ireland. As a teenager she attended the Ulster Youth Theatre before moving to Belfast , where she was a member of Fringe Benefit, a repertory company where she acted alongside Conleth Hill, with whom she would later appear in television juggernaut 'Game of Thrones'. In 1986 she came to London and established herself as a considerable stage actress in 'Oleanna 'at the Royal Court, 'Dancing at Lughnasa' at the Old Vic, as Lady Macbeth with the West Yorkshire Playhouse and as Emilia, wife of the villainous Iago in the Donmar Warehouse's production of 'Othello', for which she was nominated for an Olivier award and on the strength of which she was offered the part of the fiercely matriarchal Lady Stark in 'Game of Thrones'. Following that character's demise she appeared in several American television series - '24', 'Suits' and 'The Lizzie Borden Chronicles ' - as well as playing the wife of (Southern) Irish Brendan Gleeson in the epic period film 'In the Heart of the Sea'. In 2015 she returned to Britain to appear in the play 'Splendour' in London and the television series 'Rebellion' chronicling the 1916 Easter Rising.We have a wonderful chat about her career and also her recent visit to our Haircuts4Homeless Knightsbridge where she was a really great contributor to the evening. She is fascinating, funny, empathetic, beautiful soul.
