It is with pleasure that I, Kate Cousens, invite you to listen to my podcast show ‘Ladder Down’ where I chat all things business and career along with other people who do interesting things!

Sending the ladder down is the concept of someone sharing their success to help raise others up and, in this podcast, we will explore the ups and downs of climbing the career and business ladder.

This concept is one that is close to my heart as back in 2018 I wrote and self-published a book called ‘Ladder Climbing in High Heels’ where I shared a number of what I called ‘Ladder Lessons’ that I found useful during my 20+ year corporate career.

Since then, I have gone on to become an advisor, director and shareholder at a Chester based firm called HM bamboo helping owners and senior leaders with their personal development and business growth goals.

I love listening to people tell their story, and how they progressed in their career or got to run their own business. I hope that listeners will find these stories helpful and can apply the things they learn along the way in their own lives.

Please let me know what you think of the Podcast - I am a total newbie to it so we will be learning lessons together along the way....but hey, that's what life is all about! Connect with me:

In this episode Kate meets Dr Sue Smith and Dr Helen Kini, experienced GPs within the NHS who have developed a passion for lifestyle medicine and its positive effect on health. 

Together they have founded 'Flourish for Life', a Doctor-led service providing a tailored holistic approach to give you the confidence and support to achieve your lifestyle goals. They help people to making long lasting changes which have a significant impact on people’s health and wellbeing. That can be a reset or rebalance of lifestyle habits to generally feel better or it can be linked to specific life changes – for example they help a growing number of women with symptoms linked to the menopause – a subject that is super topical and that both are very passionate about. They say that the key is recognising that no two women are the same and simple small changes can make all the difference. 

Sue and Helen are great believers in the power of changing lifestyle as medicine and want to share this with as many people as they can. Find out more at:
