62. Psychotherapist’s Wisdom on How to Feel Safe Being Vulnerable


In this episode…

In this profound talk with psychotherapist (with over 3 decades of experience) and tapping expert we go into the power of being vulnerable.

A few quick things he shares of the top of my head:

He shares the #1 reason people don’t experience true intimacy in a relationship.

He shares where according to him the “I’m not good enough” belief comes from that we collectively seem to suffer from

And he places being vulnerable in context, so you know understand where it is good and safe, and where it isn’t helpful, or even detrimental.
