On the 4th March 2009, my life changed forever. My Dad, the man I looked up too, the man who in my eyes had 'everything' on paper took his own life. After it happened I struggled to deal with the grief, I buried the pain and found myself asking the question 'why' over and over again. I too then found myself struggling with depression and anxiety. This Podcast is all about documenting not only my own personal journey to discovering more about mental health and suicide, but to also document ot ...

THIS WAS A POWERFUL EPISODE. Two weeks ago I had a video call with Alex Costa, where we discussed mental health, his drive to never give up, dealing with grief and his work ethic. It's funny, I was first connected to Alex through Antonio Centeno (of Real Men Real Style) who let me know Alex was in London. We were trying to arrange to meet up, then …
 
I've missed coffee, I've missed answering your questions, and I've missed this Podcast! In this episode I answer your questions, and talk about dealing with lack of motivation and how to stop procrastinating... It really is a tough time right now, and from a lot of conversations I've been having I wanted to jump on and talk about how to 'eat that f…
 
This one I've been holding back for a while, but I was lucky to sit down and chat with Eric Bandholz from Beardbrand. Aside from Eric's really poor jokes (watch until the end!) we spoke openly about topics such as parenting, business success, finding confidence and infertility. With Eric's channel having over 1 million subscribers, we really steppe…
 
A while back, I featured on a podcast episode for MQ Open Mind. A podcast by the very amazing charity MQ Mental Health. In this episode, I alongside Hannah (from MQ) and Rory O'Connor (suicide researcher) got together to bring awareness for mental health and suicide on world suicide prevention day. It was a podcast that saw me, share my personal st…
 
I recently poured a fresh brew of coffee, grabbed my microphone and hit record. In this episode, I get honest. Talking about a few emotions I've had to deal with and process recently, in the hope that it shows you that it's ok to talk about your emotions. Emotions are normal. Some are more painful than others, but it's not about turning off emotion…
 
SORRY! SORRY! SORRY! Firstly, for the lack of recent updates. But hopefully this episode makes up for it :) This was an old interview, back in summer, with Dave who has his own podcast and we discussed a lot around mental health, masculinity and also my journey. Back in 2009, just after losing dad, things didn't look great. I found myself in a dark…
 
This interview really shocked me. I've had the pleasure of knowing Antonio Centeno for a while now, but what he shared in this interview was truly inspiring. Antonio Centeno was someone I got to know after watching his videos on YouTube back in 2011, and seeing his channel grow over the years (and his work ethic) has been hugely motivating for me. …
 
SUPER honest interview coming up, Henry asked a few questions I've never really explored before. This was an interview I gave around mental health awareness week, sharing my story but also touching on subjects such as the mental health crisis, mental health in the workplace and also my thoughts on dealing with adversity. Hopefully it brings you som…
 
Just finished up a lecture and wanted to record this episode sharing 5 lessons I wish I knew when I was 18. At 18, I had just faced the biggest turning point in my life. My Dad had taken his own life. I struggled with the grief, dealing with the why and I struggled to deal with anxiety and depression. In fact, things got pretty dark. From 21 I've b…
 
Feeling guilty and want to stop? In this episode I talk about what you can do to get rid of guilt instantly. Guilt is a negative emotion. When you carry guilt, you carry negativity. We often feel guilty because of things we've done in the past, but understanding the root cause of guilt is the first step to letting go. Remember guilt is just an emot…
 
So over the past few days there's been two occasions where I've been asked about antidepressants, and I wanted to share a few of those thoughts on this quick episode. In other episodes, I've been honest about my opinions about antidepressants but I wanted to reframe them in this video. For me, antidepressants and medication for mental health is nee…
 
In this talk I openly share the story of my Dad, how I dealt with it and what we can learn from the way we currently treat depression. And I really want to focus on the fact that depression can affect anyone. Depression isn't always constant sadness, it can often be disguised with a smile. This full talk was delivered at Wieden and Kennedy in Londo…
 
So this was hard, going back through and reacting to an article published about my Dad's suicide. If I'm honest, I completely forgot about it until recently we were looking through things for some content for a documentary. Isaac hit record on the camera, as I looked back and went through the article and the comments. Including a comment, from me. …
 
To be honest, this interview really surprised me. For episode 3, I spoke to travel influencers Camille and Jean about the reality and pressures they face when it comes to social media. Their feed is inspiring, but at the same time I think it would be quite easy for some of us to compare our current lives to the travelling lifestyle they live. Also …
 
So the other week I jumped on a Facebook live stream to answer your questions but also talk about guilt. Guilt is something we all face, but I share a personal story about the guilt I carried (and still carry) around my Dad' suicide. When we lose someone there's normally an element of guilt that comes with it, feelings of doing more or regrets that…
 
Just before Christmas in 2018 I sat down with Ellen for the Metro's Podcast called Mentally Yours. It was an honour to be featured, and I wanted to share the full conversation with you. In it, I talk about the need for us to start talking about suicide. With it affecting so many, but with many still suffering in silence, we need to start normalisin…
 
A few weeks ago I spoke at a panel for The Whole Man Academy alongside David Gandy. Situated at Number 1 Savile Row at Gieves and Hawkes, it was a huge honour to share my story and highlight the need for men to talk more about mental health. Hearing David also open up too, highlighting the effects of social media and how even he has dealt with ment…
 
If you have a negative inner voice and your mind is always putting you down, how do you deal with it? How do you overcome self doubt? In the second episode of 'Coffee with Paul', one of questions I got asked was dealing with self doubt and I think it's something we've all struggled with at some point. For me, understanding that self doubt is put th…
 
So I was walking home last night from a productive day in London, it was 11pm, dark, I was power walking to get home as quickly as possible but I decided to hit record on a voice note. I thought I'd share it with you all, as it includes some take aways from the day that I had. I speak about why we all need to talk about mental health, no matter who…
 
This was the episode I wanted when coming up with the idea of Behind The 'Reel', and I'm honoured to share this sit down interview with Aaron Marino. Aaron (Alpha M) is someone I first connected with back in 2010, and seeing his channel grow to almost 5 million subscribers has been inspiring. But I wanted to step behind the scenes, and see how Aaro…
 
It's time for change, too many people are suffering in silence. Pledge your support here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-documentary-to-expose-the-mental-health-crisis Quite simply, this documentary HAS to be made. Because even though the statistics that surround mental health and suicide are shocking, still little action is being made to pre…
 
Super excited to announce this new series, kicking it off with an interview with Instagram influencer Darren Branch. Behind The 'Reel' is all about interviewing 'influencers', and getting to know more about them behind what they share on social media. I think we're all victims of only showing our best side on social media, so I really want to show …
 
Grab yourself a coffee, sit back, and hopefully my honesty in this video helps you. For the past few months I've been wanting to do more Q&A videos and episodes, and with a bunch of questions at the ready from the previous few months, I wanted to jump in and answer them all on camera. Here's the audio for it. I talk about the best memories I have o…
 
So for this quick episode I wanted to share a simple change I've made over the last year which has lead to BIG results. Sure, it's not sexy. It's not quick. But it's really effective. 3 letters. That's all it is. 3 letters that open up new relationships, opportunities, less fear and 3 letters that push you to a better version of yourself. Those 3 l…
 
So for this episode I grabbed the microphone and shared what's on my mind right now. A thought that's been pulling me down... "My Dad could still be alive knowing what I know now". It's led to a mixture of emotions, I feel proud because of how far I've come and everything I've discovered but I also feel guilty and sad that my Dad could still be ali…
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I've spent the last two weeks really disconnected. I've rarely updated this Podcast, social media, and also disconnected from my phone altogether recently on a family trip to Tenerife. Honestly, that disconnect has been so refreshing and something I needed. In this episode, I look back on 2018 and explain why 2019 needs to be the ye…
 
Here's an interview I gave back in November for Maytree. I'm hoping this interview offers some value to you in two ways, through my honesty in the interview but also as an introduction into the amazing work that the Maytree do. Since giving this interview I reflected on how my Dad would've probably benefited from something like the Maytree, rather …
 
Someone once explained suicide grief as "grief with the volume turned up". It really struck a cord with me, as I really did struggle to accept my Dad's suicide. Grief is hard, knowing that someone you love has gone can lead to a rollercoaster of emotions. As a British society too, we also struggle to talk about grief and people who've died. But sui…
 
So this was slightly different! I drove to Cardiff to visit fellow mental health campaigner Anneli Roberts of Pigletish.com a few weeks back and we recorded the conversation we had. We sat down on the sofa, hit record on the camera and spoke as openly and honestly as we could about mental health. From losing our parents at a similar age, to how we …
 
So this is one from the archives on my old Podcast, but I think this could offer huge value to you. I spoke to Dr Phil Carson about natural ways to deal with mental health issues. Why? Because Dr Phil was someone who was a trained doctor who practiced medicine who then transitioned into more natural remedies and saw some amazing results. This episo…
 
So if I could spend one more hour with my Dad, would what I say to him? This was a question I was asked in a recent interview with Alex Manzi from the Dreamers Disease Podcast and it really got me thinking. To be honest with you, I really wouldn't know what I would say or do. A few weeks ago I published a clip from this interview but I wanted to sh…
 
Yesterday I went on Sky News again, this time to talk about mental health stigma. I wanted to show you the full interview, but also give you a bit of a back story (behind the scenes) as to what happened when I got the call. Just for the Podcast ;) In this interview with Kay Burley we spoke about mental health in the workplace, stigma, how to get he…
 
This Saturday I got invited to talk to the 'Young Champions' by time to change. Sharing my story, but also sharing how creating videos can help inspire others. This was an amazing opportunity for me, to combine two things I'm hugely passionate about... Mental health awareness and social media marketing. In fact, it came at a time when I've been rea…
 
In this episode I share a personal story about how wearing a mask kept my emotions hidden from those around me. I also share about how this mask was the same one my Dad wore, just before he took his own life. This is a personal, quick, but super important episode. And I'm hoping that this shows others that they no longer need to wear a mask too. De…
 
A few weeks ago I went in to the BBC studios to talk about the mental health crisis surrounding young people right now. This is something I'm hugely passionate, now as a Dad, I realise just how important it is to focus on the next generation when it comes to mental health. And hearing stories from people daily about how they've lost their children …
 
Do you often find yourself comparing your current situation with others? Comparing your job to others… Comparing your appearance with others… Comparing the things you own to others… One of the worst habits you can have is comparing yourself to others, but in this post I’m going to help you break that habit with a few simple mindset shifts. But why …
 
I loved this interview with Olivia from The Blogger Programme, it really was a chance for me to talk about two things I'm extremely passionate about. Digital marketing and mental health... We discuss my story, my early years in business, the recent shift I've made from the fashion industry to mental health awareness and we dive deep into the topic …
 
This is someone you love. Whether it be a sibling, parent, friend or partner... This is someone you’d do anything for but their depression has put extreme strain on the relationship. How many more events can you miss because “they didn’t feel like it”? How many more mornings can you spend with them struggling to get out of bed? You’re surely fed up…
 
A few months ago, James Alcott can to meet me in London to interview me for his video series called 'The Process'. Naturally known for his football videos, this conversation was completely different to what James was used to doing but he wanted to find out more about my Dad and how I dealt with his suicide too. I've given a lot of interviews like t…
 
I've never really shared this before... But on a recent Podcast interview with Alex Manzi of the Dreamers Disease, I spoke openly about my previous need for 'status'. A need that was purely driven from depression and my own insecurities. From the outside in I looked happy, I looked successful, but my mind, stress levels and bank balance told a comp…
 
So it's about time I put some context to why I started this Podcast, and also what value you can gain from listening. If you follow me on any other social channel, you'll already know the kind of content I create, but I wanted this Podcast to simply be an extension of that. To allow you to listen to my content, in audio format, whenever you needed …
 
I recently had the honour to head into the Sky studios for an interview with Kay Burley on Sky News. I wanted to play you the interview, alongside giving you a bit of a background into how it happened. In the interview we spoke about the book, but also went into detail about my Dad's depression, his suicide, the way I dealt with it and the stigma t…
 
A few months ago, I was interviewed by the guys over at 'Life Are We There Yet'. If I'm honest, I didn't expect the interview to go the way it did... but this was probably me at my most honest. We spoke about my Dad's downfall, his suicide, my struggles to deal with it and my battles with depression and anxiety. We also spoke about what I did that …
