Hello I’m Michelle Thomas and welcome to My Shit Therapist, the podcast pick of the week in The Times
! The actual Times! I’m so happy and proud. I’m a one woman band, and sometimes it can feel like I'm chucking stuff out into the void. It’s hard to make an impact with no marketing budget and a full time job, so I’m really glad to have a bit of recognition, and I’m really glad you’re here. And if you want to spread the word you can leave a lovely 5 star review and subscribe , and I’ll be your friend forever.
Today I’m speaking with Hywel Harrington, a trainee therapist from South Wales who now lives in Bristol.
Just a heads up, when I spoke to Hywel he was recovering from top surgery, and we’re going to talk a little bit about the details of that, we’re also going to touch on gender dysphoria, substance abuse, and a suicide attempt, so as ever if you’re not feeling up to it today, come back another time.
Having said that we do laugh a lot in this episode, and Hywel is incredibly charming and funny and wonderful, you’re going to love him.
You can find Hywel’s Instagram account @howl.skellington because it’s spooky season.
Thank you so much for listening, until next time take care and take your meds xx
