Great Expectations | Overachievement & Perfectionist Thinking

This week Izzy and Jenny discuss the impact of those unreachable expectations that we not only put on ourselves but that society implicitly places upon us. They share how they have fought against a tendency to overachieve throughout their life and battled through perfectionist (and often self-critical) thinking if those high standards aren't achieved.

Untangled

The podcast where we discuss the strange tangled mess that's in our minds. Hosted by Izzy and Jenny, Untangled is a podcast that attempts to open up the discussion around those everyday struggles we find ourselves facing and by doing so normalise the topic of mental health for our listeners.

In each episode, personal anecdotes are shared to help us untangle a topic of our choosing, bi-weekly challenges are set to help us discover new techniques and coping strategies and on occasion guests are invited to share their personal journeys towards recovery.
