    Chore Wars: What's Behind the Drama of Dishes, Laundry, and Toilet Seats?

    Ever walked into your bedroom after a long day, only to be greeted by your partner's stinky jocks lounging on the floor, just inches away from the laundry basket?
    Yep, been there, felt that frustration.
    In this episode, I’m diving into the messy world of household chores, where laundry, leaving the toilet seat up, and dirty dishes become the epicentre of relationship drama.
    As a therapist, I've had my fair share of ringside seats to the chore wars, and let me tell you, it's quite the spectacle. But here's the thing – it doesn’t have to be. That's why I'm shining a light on why these seemingly mundane tasks can explode into stress bombs and, most importantly, how to disarm them.
    So, if you're tired of the chore war drama, do yourself a favour and tune in for some practical tips to help you tackle chore conflicts effectively. Because let's face it, nobody wins in the chore war game – it's all about finding that sweet spot in the middle.
    Trust me, this listen is worth every minute.

    Change is Strange: Embracing Life's Plot Twists

    Change is Strange: Embracing Life's Plot Twists

    When change comes knocking, do you find yourself hesitating to answer?
    Hey, you're not alone!
    That's why this episode is all about change – that inevitable part of life that has a knack for leaving us feeling stuck.
    Listen as I take a deep dive into the psychology of change, unravelling why it can feel like such a head-scratcher. I'll chat about why we resist change, even when it could lead to some serious personal growth and resilience. And let's not forget why we often hold onto the familiar for dear life when the unknown holds so much potential.
    So, tune in now for some strategies on kicking fear of change to the curb and practical tips for getting prepped, taking action, and sticking to it.
    But wait, there's more! I'll also share a story about an incredible couple I had the privilege of working with and how through embracing change they found their way back to each other.
    And speaking of unexpected blessings, I've got a personal story to share too. It's about a tough situation that shook up my family – one that demanded change, action, and acceptance. But you know what? That sh%t stick delivered an unexpected gift that keeps on giving to this day.
