Welcome to Episode # 87 of The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast the show designed to help you reduce the leverage that alcohol has in your life and your relationships.
Before we get on with the show, I want to remind you that I have a box full of Steven Pressfield books to give away. If you leave a review on iTunes, send a screenshot to email@example.com, including your postal address, and request for publication type (War of Art, Turning Pro or The Authentic Swing) I will ask the members of the community forum to select the best one and promptly dispatch the book.
The iTunes review of the week and the recipient of a copy of The War of Art came from Kieran Hickey all the way from Canada.
“Just wanted to thank you for your program. I’m newly dealing with this, and your program is helping for sure. Your down to earth approach is awesome.”
And talking about the Community Forum if you are listening to the Alcohol & Addiction Podcast and haven’t checked out the forum then why not?
It’s a safe place where like minded people share experiences while at the same time offering help and support. You shouldn’t have to go through these changes alone. Let the community forum be your friend, and the link to the site is found at the end of this post.
Finally, if you aren’t interested in joining the Community Forum, taking my course, or receiving one-to-one coaching, but still want to make a donation to the show, then please follow the link beneath the show notes, and you can do that.
Onto today’s guest, Dr Gail Brenner.
Gail is a licensed Ph.D. psychologist with over 20 years of experience offering psychotherapy. Her work as a therapist invites people to return to their essential wholeness, to shed false identities and realise the truth of who they are, and she is the author of At The Core of Every Heart: Reflections, Insights, and Practices for Waking Up and Living Free and The End of Self Help Discovering Peace and Happiness Right at the Heart of Your Messy, Scary, Brilliant Life.
I loved talking to Gail and left the conversation thoroughly uplifted and more aware of my personal power and happiness. We talked about what she means by the end of self-help, why there is nothing inside of us to be fixed, how to own our suffering, process fear-based thoughts, and a whole lot more.
