Episode 207 of 985 episodes

Could relationship counselling help boost couples chances of staying together, manage conflict and communicate better? Listeners tell us how they have dealt with a relationship crisis? One year on from the abduction of 219 Nigerian Girls by the militant group Boko Haram, Dr Fatima Akilu tells us about the counter terrorism programme she has helped to design. Severe pregnancy sickness is still not recognised or taken seriously - we find out why? Professor Dame Carol Robinson has just been awarded the European Laureate award making her the fifth British Scientist to have won the award in the last 17 years. She talks about how she left school at 16 and how she wants to inspire more women to become scientists. And the author and journalist, Robin Rinaldi, describes what it was like to spend a year living in an open marriage. Plus saxophonist, Barbara Thompson, tells us what it’s like living with Parkinson’s disease.
