Why do we hate change? with Julia Samuel Doing It Right with Pandora Sykes

    • Society & Culture

Julia Samuel is a psychotherapist, the founder/patron of Child Bereavement UK and the author of two acclaimed non-fiction books, Grief Works and her new one, This Too Shall Pass. A book about why human beings find it so hard to navigate change, it could not have landed at a better time: when choice has been removed and major change forced upon us, by the pandemic. We discuss why resisting change only makes its impact worse, the impossibility of ever fully 'knowing yourself' and the scourge of comparisonitis.

How Do We Know We're Doing It Right is out now in both hardback and audiobook, narrated by Pandora.
