Really liked it 👍
I really liked listening to this show. My favorite was the State of Hypnosis podcast. Super informative. As a counselor and educator, the shows insights are invaluable. John - host of Guy Counseling Radio
Interesting show on non-standard issues
I was pleasantly surprised to hear episode 9 and learn about Dr. Cira who advocates for clinicians to be their authentic selves rather than being mysterious which was (is) all too common for therapists.
