Simple and Effective Strategies!
I’m so glad I found this podcast! Wendy has the kind of vibe I love for personal growth work — she feels like the kind of person I’d meet at a retreat or somewhere and would feel safe enough to be vulnerable with almost immediately. There’s just something about her! Her voice is very comforting, but she’s also quite practical. These podcasts are short (but still packed with legitimately helpful advice) and easy to follow (but not “dumbed down”). I so hope she continues to do more! Maybe answer listener/client questions?? Thanks so much! 5 stars!
I knew I was a "worrier" but I hadn't really connected it to anxiety. This podcast has helped me understand what it is I experience and has offered some great ideas to help me manage it. Thank you, Wendy! I'm looking forward to more!
