    Episode 197: Personal Updates from Robert

    Episode 197: Personal Updates from Robert

    This episode is a little different. Rather than doing a Q&A, interview, or deep dive, I just wanted to sit with you for a while and give you some updates on where I'm at in life. I'm a real person, just like you. That the whole point of this Duff the Psych "mental health for real people" thing. So, I want to talk with you about my unexpected career changes, what's going on with my kids, how my relationship is going, and just let you in on the guy that you listen to each week. Hope you aren't bored out of your mind!
    As a reminder, the Kick Anxiety's Ass course is still going with the massive price drop down to $75 or $25 monthly. Check it out now while you still have the chance!

    Episode 195: All About Exposure for Anxiety

    Hello, friends! This is a re-release of episode 98, which is an episode that I refer back to quite often on the show. I talk about the concept of exposure as it relates to anxiety and take you through different techniques for lowering your sensitivity to anxiety. This is must-know information for those that are serious about taking their lives back from anxiety.
    I also discuss an immediate change to my online course, Kick Anxiety's Ass. The price has been drastically reduced from $300 to $75! Enrollment in the course will be closing on 3/15/20 so that we can revamp the course and add even more awesome features. 
    In this episode, I also talk about my blogpost to help you find a therapist, which can be found at duffthepsych.com/findatherapist.

Super helpful and supportive!

Informative, easily understood and relatable! I have learned so much about a variety of mental health topics that have helped me cope with things I am personally going through or how to be there for others that I know that are struggling. I especially love the interviews on experts and personal stories of those who share their mental health journeys. Thanks for keep it real Dr. Duff!

Even if you think you don’t need it.

Let me first start by saying that I absolutely do need this! I just started listening about a week ago and have found most all of Dr. Duff’s episodes to be beneficial in some way. His voice is easy to listen to, his content is understandable and relatable. It is comforting to feel his empathy. Definitely will continue to listen and recommend to anyone, even if they think they don’t need it! Team #DuffThePsych
