Easily my favorite therapy podcast
I’m a mental health counselor and a counselor educator and this is by far my favorite therapy podcast, and I’ve listened to A LOT of them. Sue and Ann are so smart and caring, and provide such useful insight about the nuances of attachment, trauma, relationships etc. They’re clearly highly experienced and well informed but are also so humble and grounded in their approach.
Wonderful, to the point and empathetic
This podcast distinguishes itself by jumping right to the heart of the topic. The discussion is informative, insightful and emotionally intelligent. The hosts also mention related theories that can lead the listener to further research about the topic. As a clinician, I use this as an important resource to enrich my practice.
