I’m Lori Gottlieb, author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone. And I’m Guy Winch, author of Emotional First Aid. We’re both advice columnists, TED speakers, and of course therapists in clinical practice who want to bring the lessons of the therapy room outside the therapy room… to all of you. Each week on DEAR THERAPISTS, we invite you to be a fly-on-the-wall in these personal, raw, transformative sessions with everyday people and then hear what happens when we give concrete, actionable advice and have them report back to let us know how things went after the session ended. We’re sharing these real sessions because we believe that everyone can benefit from hearing how people just like them get through their struggles and grow and change. So sit back and come into the therapy room with us… and prepare to learn a lot about yourself in the process.

Getting to the heart of the matter

If you are an arm chair therapist like I am you will be clamoring for the next season of this podcast. Lori and Guy are knowledgeable, insightful and so kind. They efficiently help people get to the crux of their issues and clearly articulate what the callers can do to help themselves. I love their follow up after each session. Even when I did not think an episode would interest me, I was wrong. There is much to learn from other people’s behavior and you will be surprised at how often their insight can alter the perspective of your own life and decisions.
