This week, it’s the series finale of Life...On Our Terms and we’re joined by the wonderful Lorraine Pascale! Lorraine is of course a renowned TV chef and model, but recent years have seen Lorra...ine dive headfirst into mental health advocacy. In this episode, Lorraine and Gemma will discuss Lorraine’s approach to mental health, how she believes in helping people find and use their strengths and how resilience can come from cultivating your own inner cheerleader. As well as Lorraine, Gemma is later joined by Zara, who’s studying for a degree in Psychology with Counselling at The Open University, all whilst maintaining a career as a support advisor for those with histories of alcohol and substance abuse. Through studying with the OU Zara has managed to break down her own barriers and develop the tools needed to follow a path she is immensely proud of. We’ll also hear how her degree has empowered her with the confidence to contribute both at work and at university, as well as Zara’s thoughts on the wealth and diversity of resources available at The Open University.
