    The origins of why we feel unworthy of love
    Childhood wounds 
    Early romantic scripts and teen romance 
    Repeated rejection and shame

    Our mother wounds represent the unprocessed trauma and insecurities we pick up from the dynamic we each have with the women who raise us and shape us. In today's episode we break down the psychology of our mother wounds including their origin, their impact and their manifestation, from our body confidence to our competition with other women, our ability to trust and connect, our fear of disapproval and chronic people pleasing. 

    We also explore ways to heal this wound, both in collaboration with our mother and on our own. Listen now for more!

The podcast that’s become a big part of my life

Hey Gemma,

I just wanted to thank you for putting this podcast out. I’ve noticed that over the past six weeks or so, I’ve had one of your episodes on while doing pretty much anything. It genuinely feels like talking to another friend in your 20’s. I even told my psychologist about the pod!

Thankyou ❤️
