Season 1

Episode 1: 'The Problem with Perfectionism' with Toby Clyde-Smith



In this episode, we put the focus on workplace wellbeing, looking at The Problem With Perfectionism with Toby Clyde-Smith, BSc, MBPsS, who is the Programme Director for The Positive Group.

We live in an increasingly perfectionist world, and whilst there are a number of recognised benefits which can accompany perfectionist tendencies, there is downside to perfectionism. Unhealthy perfectionism has been scientifically linked to burnout, reduced productivity and poor relationships. It is also a significant risk factor for a range of mental health problems.  This talk aims to draw a distinction between the pursuit of excellence and unhealthy perfectionism.

Episode 2: In Conversation with Jonny Wilkinson: Start Living Life from the Inside Out


Note: This podcast episode talks in detail about mental health issues.

In this podcast the Naked Professor Ben Bidwell interviews Jonny Wilkinson, CBE and Founder of No. 1 Living to explore how we can only achieve what we are truly capable of if we start living our lives from the inside out

Exploring Jonny’s evolving journey through career changes and life transitions, resulting mental health challenges and how he went on to discover new approaches for a more balanced, happier and fulfilled life, the conversation will inspire the audience to live well and thrive. Share Jonny’s experience in revealing your potential in life, to work with our bodies to feel more alive and explore how to uncover the joy in ourselves.

Episode 3: Fact or Fiction: What to Believe When it Comes to your Wellbeing?

In this episode we explore the importance of differentiating Fact from Fiction when it comes to what to believe for your wellbeing?

The wellness industry is booming and we have never been more aware of the need to focus on improving both our physical wellbeing and emotional wellbeing. As consumers, separating fact from fiction across products, nutrition, exercise, influencers, experts and advice can be a real challenge and the wrong information can be harmful, not to mention financially draining. Our panel of qualified doctors and psychologists, chaired by Sarah Greenidge Founder of the Wellspoken Mark, are here to empower you with tips on how to identify pseudoscience, understand the science, give you guidelines on how to make informed decisions and why it’s not best practice to rely on social media as a source of your wellbeing inspiration.  We hope this podcast helps you separate fact from fiction.
