Katy Katopodis and Ofentse Pitse

Her mind, her strength

This podcast is dedicated to unravelling the multifaceted dimensions of women's mental health, and how we as women can find balance between both our professional and personal lives.


In a world where societal pressures, gender norms, and expectations often weigh heavily on women's shoulders, it's crucial that we create a space to unpack, understand, and celebrate the crucial role women play in our society. We'll address the impact of societal pressures, like the constant need to conform to unrealistic beauty standards, the pressure to balance career and family life, and the often-overwhelming expectations placed on women to be both caregivers and nurturers.

But it's not all about adversity. We'll also celebrate the incredible resilience, courage, and strength that women exhibit every day. We'll discuss self-care, self-love, and self-empowerment, providing practical advice and strategies to help women and those who support them nurture their mental well-being.

Listen to episode 5

In this episode, we embark on a journey through the rich tapestry of women's experiences, from triumphs to trials and everything in between. We'll hear from inspiring women who have overcome incredible odds in both their personal and professional lives.
