Her latest episodes for coaches are gold 🤩


As good as my therapist
Courage & Spice is without a doubt my favourite podcast of all times. Indeed, the only one that I come back to regularly. I love how Sas weaves theory about human mind with her own research, practical tools and real life examples. There's no false promises or five 'easy' steps towards XXX I love her honest approach to convoluted topics, her ability to openly bust 'trendy' beliefs and encourage us to be kind to ourselves as we explore this tender unconscious territory of self-doubt.


Warm and smart
I’ve been listening to podcasts for a long time and I must say this one really stands out. Sas Petherick has a deep knowledge that she shares with clarity and humility. I’m learning a lot from her.


Intelligent, inspiring, thought-provoking, warm and wise
Loved the first episode and Sas's warm and sparky personality really came through. Fascinating look at self doubt and a really satisfying balance of well-researched science and genuine honesty and intuition. Excited to hear more!


A Must Listen!
A truly helpful and insightful podcast. Giving a clearer understanding of self doubt and giving great advise of how to put theory into practice. Keep up the great work Sas!

You’ll find inspiring guest interviews, practical resources, and insights into the entrenched cultural narratives we live with every day so that you can discover the bravest version of you on the other side.
