WHAT HEROES DO...

ABIDING ABANDONMENT

Season 1, Ep. 1

A warm welcome to a new mental health awareness podcast. Many of us have unfortunately suffered some type of #trauma in our lives. Be it #physical or #mental, scars do exist and wounds can run deep. But one of the most important things to remember is - none of us are alone.


Your host Glen Dower, has been through Abandonment Trauma as a child which manifested in adulthood through #procrastination, impostor syndrome, low self-esteem and self-worth, high #anxiety and the use of #alcohol as a numbing agent. But now he owns his problem - and is looking to help others who have suffered similar challenges in their lives.


Along with a variety of guests, we offer a safe place to learn, to be inspired, to be motivated, and to take the steps to a better you. This week professional global fitness coach, and ex-pro-rugby player, Mike Poole guides us through the incredibly inspiring story of how he willed himself back to health following a near fatal accident, and went on to become an award-winning health and fitness professional.


We want you to fly high...not alone.
