PODCAST: The Before You Kill Yourself Podcast with Special Guest Orlagh Reid

The Before You Kill Yourself Podcast is a suicide prevention podcast hosted by Leo Flowers. For world suicide week I talked to Leo Flowers on this suicide prevention podcast about anxious attachment, deposits of intimacy and unburdening yourself and my own raw journey through depression and suicidal ideation.

When I began listening to Leo’s podcast I felt both joy and pain listening to the stories of hope and positivity. So many of us are touched by suicide, and loss or live with hidden suicidal ideation and I am no exception to that. Leo and I talked about many things in our podcast but most of all I hope that my openness on the subject of suicidal thoughts encourages others to talk outwardly about what they are going through. Hang on, hold on and trust that your life is filled with purpose and love.

Psychotherapist Orlagh Reid on anxious attachment, deposits of intimacy and unburdening yourself.

November 2022


Psychotherapist, Orlagh Reid, joins me to discuss how therapy helped her cope with depression and suicidal thoughts which brought her through the other side to now working as a therapist herself.

Orlagh Reid is an accredited Psychotherapist, Addiction Counsellor and Relationships Therapist who specialises in clinical sexology, addiction recovery and wellbeing, sexual recovery, and sex and intimacy. She is trained in Gottman Method couples therapy and works 100% online from her practice in county Kildare, Ireland. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, Orlagh studied for 4 years in Complementary Health Therapy health fitness and wellbeing.

Her personal experience of depression, anxiety and debilitating panic attacks brought her to a therapist’s door in her mid-20s where her therapist joined her on a slow descent into depression and out the other side ‘together’. She now sits in that therapist’s chair holding that space and acceptance for others. Her passion in recent years is understanding intimacy and attachment.
