"What are some damaging effects of sympathy for someone who is experiencing mental health?" ~ Tuki Pham
"It's that they stay there and their entire world is affected." ~ Anna Krjatian

On 30th November 2018, I was invited by The Now Media to chat about my story.

More specifically about how I wrote myself out of depression.

Tuki Pham lead the interview and asked some powerful questions about my past, mental health, holding space for people going through mental health injury, mental hygiene and also my (then) newly launching writing and goal setting workshop Own Your Inner Light - A Workshop on Transformation.

Her hubby, Peter Tran, directed video and audio. Interestingly (and serendipitously), Peter and I used to work at the same company. This was in 2015 when I was publishing my first book Unmasking Depression.

There is a purpose with every job we have and every encounter with other people.

That's how I feel about meeting this gorgeous and grounded couple.

Although a year has passed since this interview, it feels like a good time to share the podcast with you. 

So here it is!
