The Health Interactions Podcast

Real People, Real Experiences, Real Stories

This is a podcast which aligns with the vision of Health Interactions. We endeavour to build a community determined to achieve individual progress - a society where all human beings continually striving to reach their own potential. Too often we look toward athletes and celebrities for inspiration and motivation - this is a platform where we can talk to our clients, everyday people. Giving them an opportunity to share their unique experiences, where the listeners can learn and become inspired by their compelling stories of overcoming adversity.


Phil was a client out ours when we were based in Melbourne, however, Phil has family in Newcastle which he visits every 3-4 months - so we are fortunate enough to continue working with him whenever he is in the area. Phil has aphasia, as a result of a stroke he experienced 8 years ago - which means he cannot verbally communicate they way he used to. Being an audio only podcast, we have also brought Mary-Anne onto the podcast to not only communicate on Phil's behalf - but she also talks about her learning experiences in the early stages of Phil's stroke.
