Hey everybody, welcome to a naked tool with calming in Olivia podcast. This is a mental will being podcasts where we will be openly discussing our own experience with mental health issues and mental well being. We are not qualifying mental health fashioners by any means that we are both certified transformation life coaches and putting us we have a range of experiences in this area. We will do weekly podcast discussing different topics. It depends what is relevant in their specific week or when it comes to mind. Now, Olivia, will you introduce yourself? Hi Everyone, I'm Olivia Standbridge and I'm a certified transformational life coach and I also enjoy doing some public speaking when I can. I live in Cambridgeshire with my other half and our two dogs. My background is I have experienced in the public sector of the police officer and then I moved into the corporate world where...

I worked as HR manager, so I've been through a couple of big career changes so far. I was actually medically retired from the police due to poor mental health, which no doubt will be discussed in more detail and future episode, so stay tuned for that roller coaster ride. I then left hr as I was feeling very lost and I'm sure of myself in the corporate world. It just really didn't suit me. I wasn't doing something that aligned with my personal values and ethics. I felt like I was pretending to be someone I wasn't. And don't get me wrong, I was very good at my job, but it just didn't feel right. I didn't want to live my life like that any longer. Life too short to be stuck doing something you just don't feel writing. I've done some training in workplace coaching as part of my hr roll and discovered more about who I was and who I how I wanted to live my life. So I took the leap and less the Corporate Well Behind Training Transformational coaching, which actually works at much deeper level than workplace coaching,...

...and then set up my coaching practice and have been supporting people internationally ever since to achieve their goals. My mission in life is to help those that feel last on certain and in authentic to find out who they really are, they want to do and how to do it. My clients are empowered to take work out the right and next step for them have the courage and confidence to take action towards more fulfilling life that's aligned with what they truly value. Often people come to me wanting to be coached around changing jobs or careers, but I also coach people in other areas such as confidence, friendships, I'm living with health, fishing about something that I have experience of. In addition to one to one coaching, I also run workshops and Webinars and I love interacting with people in a group situation for calm. And here are you tell us about you? See, yeah, I'm Carmendarth and as well. I'm...

...a certifived transformational life coach. In fact, me and Olivia we met doing that diploma. I'm Spanish, but I've been living in England for nearly twenty five years now. I live in London with my partner my eleven year old kids and my background is incorporate in the areas of finance and strategy and I think the last you know, you know, probably ten years my main focus was coaching and leading high performance teams and as when you talk to women in Corporates, I had it all at emotion, after maternity, in bully, discrimination and I know what is to struggle emotional and for years having many plates and having to go to work no matter what's and put a fake money like like nothing is happening to you. I know what is to feel the stuck, not knowing where to turn and to have lack of life practice. So...

...promoss I everything look like I had the perfect life. The problem was that the high I went to the corporate level, they are happier I became and I saw people, not just me but all the woman struggling with similar, Similarias in their lives. And in my darkest moment, that it was when I got the moted after my maternity. So I went from being an exemplary employee going into maternity and literally after three weeks when we arrived, get the moted for no apparent reason really, and and I became a victim. For many months. I stremely unhappy by conversign and in the job, and then I decided to get a coach and definitely that was the best decision of my life. In those sessions I realized that my worst than Andy, it was my mind and the way I look at life. Had so many limiting believe, so many fears, and we will dwell and go deeper on it's no...

...doubting few episodes in our podcast. But through coaching I sol so many more possibilities for me in my life and it was like, you know, like being a blind person and then having the opportunity of having an operation and be able to see for the first time years. So that, I was my breakthrough. So it was when, at that point, I realized that corporate was not for me and I jump into a different train and I became coach and I started working with clients. So I tend to focus on senior professional women in corporate because I know then, I understand our challenges and their issues and their dreams and I want them to thrive in life and to become the best person of themselves. I want to power then, to have self belief and self love, two areas that I think are the roots of many issues we have, not just in corporates but well in life, to authentically show...

...up and occupy more space in the world and show up as a woman in corporate because many times women in high positions they show up as a man, with the character trace of men and behave in like men. I work in many areas, depending on the clients what they need to work on. But the main ones would be self awareness, had to become was silient to type, life challenges, stress, manage many and energy management, growth mindsets, relationships and as well, lack of life purpose, if they want to work on them. My passion really is to improve the motion intelligence and organizations, and you do so by helping the top leaders in that corporates to become more efficient in their jobs, more compassionate towards overs and happy in their life. So once you improve the leader's life and their mindset, it will have a...

...dumbing effects on the people that they're working with them or they working for them. So for me is not just about change in the life of one passion. That to me is very important, based about change in the character connversation is so many can benefits from that individual changes. So yeah, they's me. So, Olivia, why a podcast? Why do you want it to do a podcast? I love podcast. I listened to them most days, whether I'm driving, doing housework, exercising or relaxing. I probably listened to too many and too much and don't get enough done. I tend to listen to through crime and comedy podcast rather than health and wellbeing. But you know, there's a lot of them out there's a lot of true crime and comedy podcast and I'm certainly no comedian and I really don't think I have the time to do all the in depth research for a true crime podcast. They wanted...

...to do something that I could actually talk about honestly and give my own experience variants in from so professional point of view as a coach, but also as someone who's been, you know, through life and had some challenges and had to come through them, and how I did that what I learned from them. If, if anyone out there is a fan of my favorite murder I was actually the hometown storyteller in episode a hundred ninety nine lives at the Hammersmith Apollo of that podcast. So that's the only other podcast I've been on so far. It's quite a big one to start with. One thing I love about podcast is how accessiful they are. They are free and you can easily interact with the host by social media. So I'm just a really big sign of podcast, so I was really interested in kind of giving it a going myself. What about you, Carmen? You are started a very high already in their pointing. So it's very good and what about me. I love...

...to duck, I love to interact with people and I love I'm very passionate about passion, development and mental well being and mental health issues. So and all my life is but I was in finance and tragedy and in my head it was always late. You just good with numbers. Stick to numbers. I had the being in the back of my heads of me having a radio channel and show. So a podcast seemed to me like a time didn't Sept or was my dream where I combine my passion for talking, in my passion for this personal development and mental well being arenness. So they suppere, I thought to talk to you. A podcast into this show. So now, in terms of closing this intro, it is going to tell you a little bit more about what we tried to do hear with this podcasts and how you...

...can contact us. Yeah, so the naked truth with Carmen and Olivia podcast will be mainly of talking about our own experiences, but from time to time we may also have guests that we've invited to share their own raw and honest story with a fool. And the point of this podcast isn't to be preachy. It's not meant to be. This is the problem and this is how you fix it and this is what you should do. It's more about sharing things we've been through or still going through and how we've dealt with the situation and what we've learned. Also, isn't a PITTY party, isn't US boasting. We are fallible human beings talking about our own experiences. Now there's very likely to be swearing and we both like a good square are. Hopefully they'll be lots of lasting and there will always be lots of honesty. So we hope to enjoy the ride. We are planning to post weekly, but this is all new to us, so please bear with us. If the sound...

...quality is terrible, we do apologize, but we have not invested in any podcast the equipment yet. I think it's a case of getting it done is better than waiting for it to be perfect. If things go well, you can expect the sound quality to hopefully improve over the coming months when we do actually get down to investing in some equipment. So please tell your friends about us, spread the word, stay honest, stay you and stay naked. And if you want to get in contact with us, we've set up instagram and twitter. Account.
