#529: Today Shann is speaking with Clinical Psychologist, Glen Tanner from Sydney Australia. Glen is the host of the Mindcog podcast where he interviews experts in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, wellbeing, and high performance to break down the science behind your mind, brain, and behavior.
Glen is passionate about psychology, and it's his mission to help people reconnect with their values, achieve their goals, unlock their potential, and live more rich, meaningful and fulfilling lives.
Glen has first-hand experience with Mental Health - having lived with anxiety most of his life. Unfortunately, anxiety does not discriminate. It cuts a swathe through every level and facet of our society: men, women, children, old, young, rich, poor, black, white, and all levels of physical and educational ability -
Not even psychologists are immune.
“The shoe that fits one person pinches the other, there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.” - Carl Jung
Glen suffered from anxiety is entire life.
Glen shares the story of his transition from a winemaker to a psychologist
Why there is no quick- fix for an anxiety problem. It takes time and a combination of methods and lifestyle changes.
-How Glen cared for himself after losing both his mother and father to lung cancer while he was completing his Psychology degree.
Glen believes that therapists are not and do not need to be immune to mental illness.
