Episode 4: Emotional Articulacy and Anxiety in the middle-aged man.

Episode four is an interview with Phil Watson. A conversation about finding the words to talk about how we are feeling and the limits of language when it comes to discussing mental health.

I have known Phil for over 20 years. He is a husband and Dad to his two birth children and adopted son. He is a secondary school German teacher and foster carer recruiter, and eight years ago found himself in the midst of a period of extreme anxiety.

In this episode Phil talks candidly about his experiences of anxiety and what he did about it. 

A warm hearted chat between two friends about the things that really matter.  Hope you enjoy it!

The charity we talked about near the end of our conversation was Home for Good.

    Really enjoyed listening to Phil! So important that men hear about other men going through dark periods.
