Osher Günsberg: The other side of dark


Imagine if you could take a drug to quieten the voices in your brain, but it meant gaining 30kgs? This was a decision media personality Osher Günsberg faced when hosting live national television and the public critique that came with it.

In this raw and honest conversation Jess Rowe and Osher talk about what it meant to be diagnosed with social anxiety, and despite his desperation to dull the anxiety with alcohol, drugs and gambling still feeling ordinary about himself.

Osher reveals his moment of clarity before asking for help and why daily exposure therapy is a non-negotiable for him,

After coming out of the other side of darkness Osher wants you to know that around the corner from pain and suffering are the good bits of life.

If Osher’s story brings up issues for you help is available by calling Lifeline 13 11 14 for a safe place to talk day and night.

The Bachelor Australia finale airs this Thursday night at 7.30pm on 10
