Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 45 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here.

P Soupers - here's the second part of my chat with Michaela Thomas. Michaela is s senior clinical psychologist, CBT psychotherapist, author, award winning podcaster and corporate speaker. Michaela is currently one of 8 nominees for the Inspirational Modern Woman of the year award - I've voted already and if you like what you hear - you can vote too here or via the link in the show notes.

One of her most recent initiatives is that she is facilitating and curating a group coaching program called Burn Bright. A transformational group coaching for the ambitious working woman who needs to be nicer to herself and calm the overwhelm. And if that sounds interesting - listen on - Michaela is open about her life experience and how she supports others - you'll find more details of the Burn Bright Programme in the shownotes.

In this episode you'll hear about the evolution of Michaela's practice as a psychologist. Including her training in Sweden, the dark side of caring for others and the inner work she's undertaken to realise that she matters too. You'll also hear about when she discovered ACT and how she's uses her extensive, evidence based toolkit in her client work.


People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun. We're all about Unlocking Workplace Potential with expert perspectives from Contextual Behavioural Science.

Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all! You can also find the shownotes by clicking on notes, keep scrolling for all the useful links.

You can find all the details of my ACT in the Workplace Train the Trainer Program over on our partner's website, Contextual Consulting.
