How to Forgive Yourself
Are you still beating yourself up for things you regret, or mistakes you made long ago? Good, caring people are always the hardest on themselves — but it takes a toll. On today's episode we're talking about how to forgive yourself through mindful self compassion, so that you can turn "regrets" into new opportunities for growth.

Post Traumatic Growth
After you've lived something really painful, there will always be a need for healing in the aftermath, and time to put yourself back together again. But it's also true that most people don't just return to baseline. Many people actually find that, when their healing process is complete, the difficult time they weathered ultimately transformed them in really positive ways.
Learn about "post traumatic growth" on this episode of the podcast.

Preparing for Fatherhood
Preparing for Fatherhood can feel a little daunting and it's not something that we talk about enough. The transition into parenthood can be beautiful but it's also very challenging. Today, I'm joined by Jessica and Seth, marriage and family therapists here at Growing Self. We are going to be discussing the postpartum experience from both the mother's and father's sides of the experience. Join us as we discuss preparing for fatherhood!
All couples go through a rocky period in their relationship. They may grow distant from each other and encounter problems that seem to be impossible to overcome. It is agonizing to decide whether or not to save a relationship because we never know the possibilities. How will we know when our relationship is worth saving?
I'm joined by Marriage and Family Therapist, Brittany S.. Today we are discussing healthy vs. unhealthy relationships. What to look for and how to heal.
Dealing With a Withdrawn Partner: Communication Problems, Part 3
In this third and final episode of our "Communication Problems" series, "Dealing With a Withdrawn Partner" we'll be looking at this from the perspective of the partner who pursues -- the one who is attempting to engage with a partner who seems emotionally distant, avoidant, and unresponsive.
If you've been feeling frustrated because your partner refuses to talk to you, this one is for you.

Self Help for Sleepless Nights
I came across this podcast during a sleepless night. Her topics are chosen through listener questions which makes the topics current and relevant. She shares her perspective as a therapist and coach while offering concrete suggestions as next steps. She does cause the listener to think differently, and does not let them off the hook for their own actions which have contributed to unpleasant experiences. It really is focused on personal growth work. Highly recommend.
(And thank you!).
Compassionate and scientifically based
I just discovered Dr. Bobby’s podcast. It’s wonderful! Binge listening to a bunch of these. Especially the “how to get over your ex podcasts”. Dr. Bobby puts things in a way that I haven’t heard before and I have listened to a LOT of self/help, therapy podcasts. ❤️
Love these podcasts. So well done. Great information. Very helpful. Subscribe!!
