Why learning to face uncomfortable feelings is vital for our wellbeing.

Clarke Carlisle, once crowned "Britain's brainiest footballer", has had well publicised mental health difficulties and issues with drink and gambling.

He believes his issues with drink, gambling and other activities stemmed from an inability to sit with painful emotions.

In this episode, we discuss patterns passed down through the generations and how we form negative beliefs about ourselves.

We talk about not automatically identifying with thoughts that pop into our mind, and learning to sit with emotions and choosing to respond rather than react.

Clarke also shares a brilliant way of teaching children 'the language of emotions'
