S1 - EP.8 - NEIL MOODIE - DEPRESSION & ANXIETY

In this episode, I’m in London with renowned editorial fashion hair stylist, Neil Moodie (@neilmoodie). Lots of people will know Neil for his work with Vogue Magazine amongst others, but what might come as a surprise is Neil’s battles with his mental health. Neil reached out to me after the launch of Man Talk and was keen to share his experiences with anxiety and depression, having suffered with both for most of his life; his father also suffered with his mental health and Neil was keen to discuss their relationship and how it impacted him growing up and beyond. In trying to deal with his issues, Neil has explored a number of different coping strategies and treatments, so it was great to hear his varied experiences (NB. he was keen to point out he’s also successfully used acupuncture for a number of years but missed this out during our chat). This is an incredibly honest, open and powerful interview from Neil, and I’m sure his experiences will resonate with many men out there…
