Getting Curious with Ollie Martin

THE HERE AND NOW PODCAST WITH OLLIE MARTIN

Ollie Martin spent 10 years as a constable with the Sussex police force operating in high risk covert surveillance and intelligence roles. After suffering burnout, Ollie resigned from the force and has since developed a range of programmes and peer support groups to help police officers and men from all walks of life 'get curious' about their own mental health and start talking. We discuss Ollie's journey from his career in the police, to the emotional impact of a traumatic event he witnessed on the job, to how he rekindled his spirit and has used that experience to help other men to open up, share their stories, and improve their mental and physical health.

The Here and Now Podcast with Dave Monds explores topics in psychology and philosophy. Each weekly episode translates big ideas from science and the humanities into meaningful themes for everyday life. We also feature regular interviews with a diverse range of guests. Travel to the edge of the universe or to the deepest recesses of the mind with The Here and Now Podcast.

anxiety

THE HERE AND NOW PODCAST WITH DAVE MONDS

 

We all experience anxiety at different times throughout our lives but for many people it becomes a serious issue requiring treatment. There are five types of anxiety disorder and together they are the most commonly diagnosed mental health issues. In this episode we take a look at what causes anxiety and consider two specific anxiety disorders, panic disorder and generalised anxiety disorder and discuss the forms of treatment available.

identity

THE HERE AND NOW PODCAST WITH DAVE MONDS

 

Who are you? Identity is about who we are but we are all made up of many parts. We develop a sense of individual identity during adolescence then begin to inhabit social worlds which inform our identity in ways that can be highly rewarding but leave us vulnerable when our life circumstances change. In this episode we explore the problem of building one's sense of self around a social identity and consider ways to overcome it.

peace of mind

THE HERE AND NOW PODCAST WITH DAVE MONDS

 

I saw a meme recently that read, "anything that costs you your peace of mind is too expensive". At first glance it made sense, but something about it didn't feel right so I decided to explore that feeling in this final episode for 2020

accountability

THE HERE AND NOW PODCAST WITH DAVE MONDS

It seems there has been a lot of focus on personal accountability in recent years. I've personally found this helpful for making improvements in my own life but I'm also conflicted about what the limits of personal accountability are. I explore that question in this more conversational type of episode. I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts on the topic.
