Below are our passionate, encouraging and supportive mental health hosts who have joined Peace Within Radio. Leading voices in self-esteem, self-love and self-compassion.
Deeply human and nurturing people from teachers and philosophers to coaches, counsellors and therapists.

Michael Doherty, author of the I-Ching, self-help blogger, teacher of philosophy, retired military, ex business man, mathematician and physics teacher shares his wisdom of eighty years through his understanding of life learned through the ancient wisdom and philosophy of The I CHING.
Michael was once told by a psychiatrist that it was amazing he has survived his traumatic childhood. From life trauma, abuse and more, Michael brings his wealth of understanding gained from questioning 'Why is this happening to me' throughout his life. He balances his intellect with his intuition with his scientific background and builds a bridge between the two. Michael is a great support to the producer Kelly and co-produces when Kelly is unable to. You will find him on 'The Urban Guru'
Faith Canter is an author, wellness and self-love coach and explorer. Faith went from a life time of Chronic illness, bankruptcy and self-hate to freedom, fulfilment, fermenting and love.
Until a few years ago she had spent her life chronically ill, both mentally and physically, as a people pleaser, a wanna-be perfectionist, over achiever and an all-round hater of her body and life. Each day started and ended with how much she and her life sucked!
Faith brings wide range of holistic topics from mental health, chronic fatigue, digestive health, self-love, stress and anxiety and so much more. You will find her on 'Faith Canter - For A Happy Self, Health and Life'.
Megyn Blanchard is a truth teller, spiritual myth buster, self-compassion and integration coach on a mission to deconstruct and demystify high level self-love and self-help topics so you can clear what’s holding you back in your life.
For many years Megyn was plugged into self-love, empowerment, and spiritual principles.
She was thinking positive thoughts and “thought she loved herself,” but was still creating less than fulfilling, toxic, and codependent relationship dynamics.
Megyn brings her deeply human style of communicating to help listeners embrace their humanity.
You will find Megyn on the show 'Fall In Love With Being Human'

She brings her down-to-earth wisdom, personal experience of deep depression, kind-hearted and introspective style to two shows on the station. Interviewing teachers, mental health advocates, experts and hosts on 'Show name coming soon' and sharing her own style of feeling-based talks as loving encouragement on her deeply nurturing show 'Soul Whispers

Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers about joining Peace Within Radio as a show host
What kind of topics are you looking for?
We are mostly very flexible. Some hosts will be experienced in certain topics, others will simply share encouraging words. We enjoy inviting hosts that can be creative and free in how they share their insights and wisdom. We welcome topics on a whole range of mental health issues, we simply ask that the host doesn’t give out medical advice.
You can do solo shows or combine with someone else. You can do interview style or a mixture. You can even do encouraging and motivating stories or poetry.
We welcome relaxing and mindfulness shows, but bearing in mind that long hypnotic tracks may be difficult if someone is listening and driving a car for example. We ask hosts to steer clear of the ‘law of attraction’ style topics.
Length of Show
If you become a host we ask shows to be no shorter than 20 minutes, but we ask for a maximum of 30 minutes per show. We found that any longer and attention span can be lost.
How Do I Create My Audio?
You can create your pre-recorded shows from the comfort of your own home. This can be done via your smartphone or if you have a PC and microphone.
If you are on a PC (or Mac) we recommend downloading the free programme Audacity, it is excellent for recording audio. If you are on a MAC computer Simple Recorder is another good programme as is Wavepad (also good for PCs).
For your phone there are number of different apps for recording and sending audio. We ask any potential show hosts to send the producer a 1 minute audio sample of them talking (the topic on this doesn’t matter) so we can check the sound quality for the station. We need a certain quality so we keep the station enjoyable for listeners.
What do you need from me in addition to audio ?
In addition to audio, you need to send a title for your show, remembering this will be your introduction. So try and keep it short and easy to understand. We also ask for a short bio that will be spoken by someone else (not part of your role) introducing you and where people can find you online. We also would love a longer bio to add to this page (see other show hosts above). And finally we need a photo, preferably portrait and something we can trim into a square shape like those on this page.
How often will I be on the station ?
This depends on your show. If you choose to do a show monthly you will be on the station one week out of four. If you choose to do a weekly show you will be on every week. However, you will also be on several times during your allotted schedule day so we can maximise your exposure across different time-zones. So the more often you run a show, the more exposure you will get and brand awareness.
Will my show be available for download after it has aired ?
One month after airing your shows they will be available for download on the Peace Within Radio podcast. It will be available earlier by patrons of Peace Within Radio who are helping this not-for-profit station grow and evolve will get early access to the downloads via our Patreon page.
What if my content is similar to another host?
You are uniquely you. Even if you share similar topics there is no-one in the world that can express these topics in the way that you do. Much like different authors can cover the same topics, each reader (or listening in our case)takes in the information and wisdom shared from those hosts they most relate to. So never feel you are not original, because you always will be.
