OUTthink – An LGBT Podcast Retrospective

By LGBTQI, Mental Health, OUTthink, Shame, Therapy, Uncategorized

OUTthink – An LGBT Podcast Retrospective This episode of OUTthink, we’re going back in time! Since beginning late 2016, I’ve been so fortunate to have been able to meet and chat with some truly inspiring people within the LGBT community and discuss their stories or gain their insights into some of the bigger issues that exist out there within our community. The challenge for me is that, as a podcast that has no intention to benefit financially, bandwidth can be limited and so we’ve reached a point where I have to clean up and create space. With that in mind, and with a desire to keep some of the key lessons and insights from the earlier episodes, we delve back to explore those initial handful of OUTthinks with our guests Daniel Cordner, Lisa Torney and Joe Busuttil. About Daniel Cordner Daniel was our very first guest way back in 2016. In fact, OUTthink went from being an idea to being a reality due to a catch-up and coffee with Danny where I found our conversation came so thick and fast that it prompted me to tell him about this podcast idea that I had and wondered if he would like…

OUTthink – Kris Verle – Life Coaching

By LGBTQI, OUTthink, Podcast

OUTthink – Kris Verle – Life Coaching That feeling of being ‘stuck’ When we talk about mental health and mental wellness, we need to recognise that there is a distinct difference between the two. Often when we’re talking about mental health, we’re tackling issues like depression and anxiety and addiction. While everyone may have moments of feeling sad or feeling stressed, these can be quite different from those who are experiencing states that are crippling, holding them back or taking away from their enjoyment of life. It isn’t uncommon for many people to have an experience of feeling ‘stuck’ though, unsure about how to tackle a problem or even sometimes trying to tap into the motivation to deal with uncomfortable thoughts or challenging situations. That’s where coaching comes into it. Relationship issues or wondering what your life purpose is are topics that you can often expect to come up in certain conversations and can often have a very real impact on your life, your enjoyment of it and where you see ‘things going’. In many ways, that’s what this episode of OUTthink is all about. About Kris Verle Kris Verle is a coach who is on a mission to make…

OUTthink Craig Mack R U Ok Day Release Hypnosis Melbourne Hypnotherapy Counselling

OUTthink – Craig Mack – How To Ask R U Ok?

By LGBTQI, Mental Health, OUTthink

OUTthink – Craig Mack – How To Ask R U Ok? R U Ok Everyday? While ‘R U Ok? Day’ is in September, it is important to realise that we should make every day a day where you can ask if someone you love and care about is ok. If you can notice that they’re not being their usual self and you suspect that something is wrong, sometimes the simple act of asking someone if they’re ok can make an absolute world of difference. Some people have an absolute knack of being able to just ask the question while others can find exploring a friend’s emotional state to be perhaps a little confronting. In this episode of OUThink, we’re stepping a little outside of our usual LGBT demographic focus to talk about how to have these conversations with anyone. Joining us on this episode is Mental Health advocate, LGBT speaker and ambassador for ‘R U Ok? Day’, Craig Mack. About Craig Mack Watch the latest episode and you’ll understand why it is hard not to absolutely adore Craig and why he is such an amazing speaker. Craig is a public speaker, talking about issues such as LGBT advocacy, mental health,…

OUTthink – Daniel Witthaus – Remote Rural LGBT

By OUTthink

OUTthink: A Chat with Daniel Witthaus on Remote Rural LGBT A bit about Daniel OUTthink is back for another season and to get the ball rolling, we’re chatting with the incredible Daniel Witthaus. Daniel has been someone that I’ve been watching for a while now as I think his work is just extraordinary. He is an author, a speaker and the Founder and CEO of the NICHE (National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education). I think most impressively, and largely due to the ambition and tenacity that it shows, Daniel went all around Australia to remote communities aiming to challenge and change homophobic views and to assist local communities develop resources to support regional LGBTQIA people – and he did this ‘one cuppa at a time’. For more information on NICHE or to show your support to the organisation, you can check out their website.

Midsumma Festival Has Begun – OUTthink Update

By Addiction, Anxiety, Depression, LGBTQI

Midsumma Festival Has Begun – OUTthink Update Midsumma Festival Now is the perfect time to be in Melbourne as the annual Midsumma Festival has begun. The Midsumma Carnival last Sunday was an excellent opportunity to get out, enjoy the sun, and to take in the diversity that exists within our local LGBTQIA community. It can often be all too easy to forget that the LGBTQIA community is more than just a handful of gay clubs and the immediate circle that we associate with. It’s event likes Midsumma that help to get us out and about and to reconnect with our community. The importance of connection Research has shown the value and importance of connection to our own mental well being. It reminds us that we belong to ‘a tribe’ and that we can find people who understand and empathise with us, worts and all. Without this connection, we can often find mental health issues arising including stress, depression and anxiety, and even addiction. With that in mind, and despite Melbourne’s notoriously unreliable weather, go on and get out there. Connect with our community. Enjoy the sun and get the Vitamin D. OUTthink Update It still is a little way off…

2017: A Year In Review

By LGBTQI, Uncategorized

2017: A Year In Review Whereas 2016 was most certainly a year of change, 2017 has been harder to pinpoint exactly what it has come to represent. We’ve seen a movement throughout the year, which began with fear, move to strength and resilience, and has seemingly ended up acceptance. Nothing to fear but fear itself… The year began with a reaction out of fear. Consider this; we have three possible reactions to the things that we fear that are hard-wired into us. These three reactions are ‘fight, flight or freeze’. In 2016, we saw a massive amount of change and this change was often brought about through a manipulative use of fear. We saw the UK decide that it would leave Brexit. We saw the US push back against ‘the establishment’ and elect an unlikely President. We were still reeling from the after-shocks that come from the terrorist actions of the previous years and showed no signs of slowing down as we moved into 2017. All of these were often a reaction to our own internalized fear that people were out to get us and that we had to ‘protect our tribe’, often blown out of proportion by the media…
