    Toxic relationships are often categorized by gaslighting, and it can create trauma bonding.

    Narcissistic and psychopath abuse can be very subtle, but they make you doubt your own reality over time.

    The more you doubt yourself, the easier they can control you.

    We will look at how gaslighting looks like and how to spot it so you can escape the web before you get trapped.

    No to people pleasing and yes to boundaries

    No to people pleasing and yes to boundaries

    It's easy to become a people pleaser and focus on other people's needs instead of our own.

    We want to be liked or perceived as "good," but the cost is often our own needs, compromising our boundaries and capacity. The result is that we feel less trust and safety, and our relationships get painted with resentment and a lack of mutuality.

    Codependency can also cause us to engage in people-pleasing, so today, we will talk with Jennie Miller about boundaries, why they are so important, and how to implement them.

Relatable and engaging

Listened to a couple podcasts and found it really relatable and skills that would be easy to apply. I’m enjoying listening to more each day.

Insightful relationship advice

Having just discovered this podcast, I’m really impressed by the first conversation of 2020. It was a rich interview, enhanced by Thomas and guest both sharing their personal experiences to demonstrate how various theories of emotional self-awareness and skilful communication can be put into practice in real life.

Their candour in sharing their own learning journey and their own habits and faults in previous relationships was also really helpful in demonstrating how we are not stuck in our habitual patterns, but can learn new skills and apply these over time for healthier, more meaningful interpersonal relationships.

Highly recommended and I’m looking forward to more episodes.
