Dr Brett Mann on the impact of stress on our bodies, psychotherapy and ‘somatisation’ is this Week’s Steven Moe podcast
Dr Brett Mann is a generalist with a deep interest in many areas. While practising as a GP in Christchurch he has done a lot of research into psychotherapy and the connection between life events, stress and a person’s health and ‘somatisation’ – the expression in physical symptoms of psychological distress. In this interview we talk about that but also about his family’s history (including someone who was at the signing of the Treaty of Waiting), his perspectives on spirituality and the role it has to play in life and many other topics. I know you will enjoy this wide-ranging conversation.
