Episode 188: Anxiety, mum guilt, and saying no with Anna Mathur

Is there an upside to mum guilt? What's the best way to handle lockdown? And how can you teach your kids a valuable lesson just by sitting on the sofa? Answering all these questions and more is Anna Mathur, psychotherapist and author of the best-selling book Mind Over Mother!


She tells us about her own experiences of post-natal depression and anxiety, and why perfectionism and motherhood don't mix. We learn some useful, practical tips for managing anxiety and setting boundaries. And we share some Scummy Mummy Confessions about Instagram mishaps, incontinence and Alton Towers.
