Welcome to our Insight Matters - Inspiring Change in Self and Society podcast!
Dil and Anne Marie are the Co-Founders of Insight Matters and with a team of 55 therapists they support the mental health of over 400 clients per week through their two city centre practices in Dublin. The support services are affordable, inclusive and accessible. Since its inception, it has been Dil's and Anne Marie's vision to make Insight Matters a national service.
Dil and Anne Marie have been through their own mental health journey and grappled with depression, anxiety, eating distress, sexual abuse, sexual identity, homophobia and discrimination. Coincidentally in 2006, before they met, they both reached out for help, Anne Marie became an in-patient in a psychiatric hospital and Dil started attending counselling in a centre for sexual abuse survivors. Both Dil and Anne Marie discovered their passion for mental health and 4 years later they met at a mental health retreat. Since then they have become passionate mental health advocates and they hope to raise awareness, break down stigma and inspire change in self and soceity.

Today, we are actually speaking with a Hollywood star – we
are very excited to have the extremely talented Amy De Bhrún!
She has amazing achievements already in TV, Film and theatre
and of course
another talent she has blessed us with is her writing. This
leads us onto her recent project and one that we are honoured to celebrate
today “I See You” – which tells the incredible true story of Limerick-born Lady
Mary Heath and has a particular focus on cycles of female oppression and
trauma, which here at Insight Matters of course always interests us.
In this episode, Dil, Anne Marie, and Amy discuss how Amy
looks after her mental health, how Amy’s family have supported her in her
career, the story behind Lady Mary Heath—challenges she faced, and struggles she
endured—and what made Amy want to write about her, and the reaction that the
show has received.
“I See You” is on in Belltable Limerick on the 26th
of April. For more information, go to www.ladybudproductions.com.
