In this captivating episode, Neuroscientist and science communicator Dr Sarah McKay takes us through a fascinating look into the female brain and psyche.


Sarah debunks the common assumption that male and female brains are vastly different, and calls for a more nuanced understanding that breaks out of rigid biological differences and into the complexity and diversity of how social conditioning and individual experience shapes our brain’s development and influences the way we think, feel and behave.

We also talk about the process of behaviour change from a neurological perspective, how we can work with this awareness to support our goals and wellbeing, and the role fear and hormones really play in our brain chemistry and experience.

If you’re curious about the neuroscience behind self-development and wellbeing and how you can start to bring this awareness into your own growth journey, this is an episode not to be missed!

Health & Life Coach Heidi Hauer shows you how to use intuitive tools and access life-changing mindset shifts that support you in leading an abundant, meaningful and successful life.
