    #5: Be Gentle, It's My First Time...

    Happy Memorial Day! In this episode of Session Lessons, a 24 year old Marine Veteran has his first ever therapy session recorded. Our Military Veterans are loved for what they do, but what about who they are?
    - How your parents' relationship sets the tone, or the blueprint, for how you interact in other relationships in your life.
    - Why things always go much better when we lean into our vulnerability instead of backing away
    - How some of the tough work in life is to go from figuring out what other people want – to figuring out what we want. That includes figuring out what we want to give.
    - How the movie "Fight Club" teaches about our model for God.

    #4: Shut up and be a man.

    "Make money, be successful, and everything will be fine."
    David is 36 years old, an attorney and a senior executive at a finance company in Manhattan. "Make money, be successful, and everything will be fine." That is how he was taught to deal with his emotions. Instead of shutting up and being a man, David talked about his experiences and has learned how to change his narrative, or reset his default reactions to events and situations in his life. Through therapy David has built the tools he needs to make being happy possible.
    In this session you will hear:
    - How emotional injuries have the same properties as physical injuries 
    - Why you should watch the movie Gladiator if you want to know the difference between Power and Force
    - Just like you go to the gym before you get fat, you should go to therapy before you get depressed
    - How to be in your body and lean into feelings like anxiety and pain

Eric in BK ,

Thanks Josh!

I stumbled upon Josh’s podcast months ago while in pursuing the ability to listen in on a “successful” therapy session so as to compare it to my own experience with therapy. Immediately after binge listening the available episodes it was confirmed—I needed to find a better therapist.

After allowing the client to discuss what is on their mind and recent impactful events in their life he skillfully takes a step back with them and together contemplates what those thoughts, feelings, and actions mean and how they can be potentially harmful or beneficial.

I’m gonna end this review short so I can get back to listening to this latest episode but just wanted to say ‘thanks Josh’ for making this available and allowing others to see the real benefits of therapy!

Very insightful

I’m really happy this is out there. This is great for people who are on the fence about therapy or don’t quite know what therapy is all about.

Great Stuff!

This is a fantastic exploration into therapy and the disarming of the myths and obstacles that hold us back from receiving the guidance we need. A great way to see behind the curtain of psychology and all we have to benefit from it and where to get it.
