"It's not that men don't want to talk, it's that no one's listening..." JOIN ME ON THE MENTELL PODCAST
Most men know their mental health depends on talking about their concerns and feelings. But we are unlikely to do it unless someone we trust creates a 'space' we can speak into. Host Ben Jenkins interviews me on what men need to communicate openly and honestly. Listen to the podcast here.

Let's be women's champions 23 April, 2021
A chef I know recently told me about a senior manager who declared women don't belong 'on the line' in the kitchen.

In this video I share about looking like a complete idiot, totally humiliated. I wished the floor could have swallowed me up. But it wasn't all bad according to my mentor, who says we've got to be willing to be humiliated at least once a day! I learned not to take myself so seriously, and realised all men are afraid of the same thing. So let's loosen up about looking good all the time.
I hope you enjoy it (even though it's at my expense).
"Make sure you look out for each other, make sure you’re resilient and kind and supportive of each other…”
Great words indeed from our Western Australian Health Minister. But this test of our society has exposed the cracks in my resilience.
Like almost everyone I’ve lost work and had every meeting and conference cancelled, and so my livelihood and ambitions for the future. All my social and exercise groups have been abandoned.
Holding on to my familiar life even as it ebbs away, I wonder what to do with myself. I over-react and get frustrated. I get stupidly busy, yet anxiety saps my effectiveness. And we haven’t even begun a lockdown here in Perth!
