    Making Peace with Yourself

Elle joins Erica Chidi to talk about what it means to nurture your inner child and find a way back to yourself again.

Bring Elise back

I love the podcast but just miss Elise. Effortless, emotionally intelligent and positive she was always on point and not defensive m. It’s good still but it was just beyond with Elise.

Bring Elise back!

I’ve stopped listening now that Elise isn’t hosting. Her voice and way of talking to the listener just had a very compelling way about it and other hosts just don’t have the same effect. sorry!

Inspiring

I loved the thought provoking and fascinating episode with Peter Levine about somatic experiencing. It was helpful to have things related to the Covid pandemic and also touching on child development. Thank you. The practical sound practice was fun and insightful also! A lot to digest and research further.
