Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Tom Cleary, a Personal Development, Wellbeing & Mental Health Consultant, Trainer, and Coach and the owner of Train Your Mind.

Tom's journey has been shaped by a varied career background that spans teaching, leadership, and entrepreneurship. During his time as a teacher and school leader, Tom was known for his unwavering compassion towards others. However, this selfless approach eventually took its toll, leading to a significant burnout that forced Tom to reevaluate his priorities.

The experience of burnout prompted Tom to embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. Recognizing the importance of self-compassion, he delved into the field of mental health and well-being, dedicating himself to understanding its profound impact. Over the past six years, Tom has immersed himself in this domain, working tirelessly to help individuals and organisations cultivate a greater sense of well-being.

Today, Tom serves as a beacon of support and guidance for those seeking to enhance their mental health and well-being. As a lifelong learner and educator, he lends his expertise to individuals and organisations, fostering awareness of well-being topics and empowering them with the necessary skills to safeguard their mental health. By instilling these vital skills, Tom works towards preventing future problems and enabling individuals and teams to thrive.

Don't miss this episode to learn about Tom's journey and gain valuable insights into mental health and well-being as he draws from his extensive experience in business, education, and leadership.

“One foundation of self-compassion is mindful awareness, this helps us gain perspective and recognize unhelpful patterns that worsen our problems.” - Tom Cleary


In this value-packed episode you’ll learn:

  • What self-compassion is and why it is so important for our well-being.
  • How to increase self-awareness of your own current levels of self-compassion.
  • The next steps to increase self-compassion, leading to increased well-being & success (both in business and personally).

...and so much more!

“Self-compassion and understanding ourselves impact how we show compassion and form genuine relationships with others, which is essential for personal and professional thriving.” - Tom Cleary
