About Us

This podcast is about raising awareness about the impact of alcohol misuse on families, educating everyone about alcohol addiction, discussing news and views to change perceptions and judgements. Changing and influencing social norms. Opening the conversation outside of the immediate issue and into society. There are no limits of discussion that we wouldn't take part in and encourage others to do the same. Alcoholism needs to be an education to others. Jo and Paula are sisters who share the two roads they've travelled through alcohol misuse.

023 - Domestic abuse and alcohol misuse

How often is domestic abuse spoken about? The amount of negativity and shame that surrounds domestic abuse can mean that many do not speak up about it. They hide the fact they are victims. What impact does this have on the children in the relationship? The ones who may not be physically hurt although witness horrific situations and a breakdown in their parent’s mental health. What support do they gain as they transition through their teenage years and an adult when they are following similar patterns as it is all they know? Jenny is a business coach working with directors to ensure resilience and sustainable growth. She is passionate about supporting business owners who are survivors as they are often overlooked due to them seeming like they are a success and not in need of support. Jenny is a survivor of a lifetime of domestic abuse that transpired to an alcoholic parent who was suicidal. With Jenny’s experience of mental health, alcohol misuse and domestic abuse both as a child and an adult, she's the perfect person to interview about domestic abuse and how alcohol misuse can be missed.

022 - The strong and vulnerable women

Welcome to today's podcast episode, Jo and Paula wanted to look at how strong women can also be hugely vulnerable, and at times feel powerless. Just because someone appears strong in adversity, doesn't mean they won't find certain situations difficult. For some they become someone else and struggle to find their voice. They don't speak up and end up compromising themselves, this can go on for many years. Today Paula and Jo are joined by Dylis. Dylis is a successful business woman, having held senior positions in Barclays and running her own business for the past 20 years as an International Sales and Marketing leader, coach and speaker. She achieved this success despite her difficult childhood; living for many years with a father that drank too much, followed by a very very difficult first marriage. She indeed had many challenges to deal with. Dylis took on the role of an adult at a very early age and this role carried on into her adult life, having had to deal with physical and mental abuse. She used her work, her children and her positive Mindset to cope and become the woman she is today. Let's find out how Dylis's responsibilities led her to become a strong woman, yet at times vulnerable, dealing with similar difficulties faced by her own mother.

021 - Impact on the mental health of children of alcoholics

In episode 21 Jo and Paula are chatting to Suzannah Butcher about the impact of living with a parents drinking on your mental health. For many people living with a parent that struggles with drink isn't specific to their childhood, but runs well into their adult life. Often those impacted don't make the connection between their child experience and their adult challenges and strengths. This is one of the topics Jo is particularly interested in, there isn't a lot of evidence out there about this, although there are known characteristics of adult children of alcoholics. Suzannah is the adult child of an alcoholic. The impact of growing up with parental alcoholism had a profound effect on Suzannah’s mental health and she has struggled with complex PTSD and anxiety for most of her life. Suzannah now works as an EFT tapping practitioner and a mental health advocate, supporting and improving the mental health of others.
