Well, Hello You!

Welcome to the Go-To Podcast for people who want to finally get anxiety out of the way and get on with creating an amazing life

Whether you're living with anxiety, or parenting an anxious child or teen, it doesn't have to mean constantly trying to overcome challenges or missing out, for either of you - and once you've listened to an episode or two, you'll understand exactly what I mean. Each week you'll hear enlightening conversations with experts, with someone who, like me, is well acquainted with anxiety, or experts who know anxiety well! After all, to be anxious is so very human.

Say hello to some of my favourite guests

Anxiety is high and it’s fuelling avoidance.

But that’s only making our anxiety worse, here’s why. Avoidance and anxiety are almost synonymous. It makes sense when we remember that anxiety is our brain and body’s response in anticipation of a threat. It’s natural to withdraw from the threat and retreat to safety.

About your host
Hi, I’m Dr. Jodi Richardson.

Leading Anxiety and wellbeing speaker, educator, and bestselling author.

Anxiety and I have been acquainted for a very long time, and I know firsthand how difficult it can be to deal with anxious thoughts and feelings. Right now, you might be dealing with everyday stressors (hello, 2020 and *ahem* 2021), challenging work, family or life circumstances, or even the genetic imprint of a mental health condition - I get it. It’s never easy, but with the right advice and support, it does get easier - and that’s what I’m here for. 

I’m dedicated to supporting others with their mental health and wellbeing, and when I’m not podcasting, I'm speaking, consulting, writing, delivering professional development, exercising or hanging out with my gorgeous family!

I'm dedicated to making a genuine difference in your life, and the lives of your children.

Through candid conversations with guests who have been there and done that, I’ll give you the expertise, inspiration, and practical strategies and tools you need to rise to the challenge of being human and thrive. If you’re looking to cultivate the skills to finally get anxiety out of the way and embrace all of life’s possibilities (or support children to do just that), this is the podcast for you.
