NURTURE & NATURE WITH TALKING MENTAL -
ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE & NATURAL HEALING
It’s no secret that your mind and body function as one - but when you live in a chemical world... what on earth are you actually allowed to put in your body? Talking Mental Founder and Host Aaron Stalin-Robbie sits with a panel of experts in an attempt to make sense of all that Mother Nature has to offer when it comes to leading a happy, healthy lifestyle.
Founder & Host
AARON STADLIN-ROBBIE struggles with anxiety and panic attacks. An outgoing, positive thinking, sportsloving guy, his first panic attack came completely out of the blue. For an entire year after his first attack, Aaron was misdiagnosed. He puts this down to having difficulty explaining what he was going through and looking for help in all the wrong places. The attacks left him feeling confused, frustrated and determined to get to the bottom of his disorder.
Finally figuring out that he could be diagnosed and that he was not alone was a big step in the right direction for his recovery. Aaron has found that speaking to people who understand mental health has given him the confidence to start talking openly about it. A proud Chiwi (half Chinese, half Kiwi), Aaron is a professional host and presenter based in Hong Kong. It seems only fitting that his cure can come from what he does best: talking.
