Doha Heat
Doha Heat is a weekly, communal podcast created for every type of individual who currently calls Qatar home, has in the past, or may one day.

Ever think of how hypnosis may offer health benefits? Nicole sits down with clinical hypnotherapist, Gabrielle Turner, to explore how this technique can help improve an individual's life. Warning: may induce a trance-like state upon listening.


How do you react to the thought of someone critiquing your work? If you are like most people, you might shy away from it, but as Empower World discusses today, it can be a real gift! Making sure to listen with an open heart and mind is essential, as well as stepping out of our ego.

Nicole goes solo today, but no need to fret - the interview with aroma therapist Hermien Grobler is excellent. Listeners will learn about how being inspired by a relative has led her on a wonderful journey, especially since arriving in Qatar to serve the community.


The ladies talk about their move to an independent podcast come April, which fits well with today's topic: stepping into leadership positions and getting past our fears. Being in a position of authority can be scary initially, but as Jeanine and Marie emphasize, it is an opportunity to share our ideas and energies to help others.

We also get into the upcoming International Fashion and Ecuadorian Food Festivals.

Shout-outs to Empower World, the Sheraton, and the Doha Golf Club on your events this week!
