Lorraine & Trish meet world renowned clinical psychologist Lisa Damour who shares her expert tips on the best way to raise kids, manage their anxiety and cope in a world of social media and toxic masculinity. Plus, why sensitivity is a super power.
Actress, singer and West End star Claire Sweeney joins Trish and Lorraine to talk about her stellar career, from working men’s clubs and cruise ships to Brookside and starring roles alongside Don Johnson and Patrick Swayze . She also reveals how she’s dealing with the overwhelm of peri-menopause while single parenting and learned to take knock backs in her stride.
The kitchen disco queen joins Lorraine and Trish to talk about how she’s stopped being a people pleaser, the sexism she faced in her early career, what it’s like to raise five boys, and why it’s never too late to embrace colour and sparkle.
