As a therapist, I admire and appreciate the skill, compassion and insight you share each week through this podcast. Though you are not doing therapy in the traditional sense, you demonstrate beautifully the awareness and understanding that can be gained through compassionate exploration, as well...Read full review »

As a newly qualified therapist, this podcast is a great resource. I would have found it very interesting and helpful before I trained too.

After reading Lori’s book ‘Maybe You Should Talk to Someone’, I googled her for a website but discovered she had a podcast. It’s such a good follow up from the book. Listening to the variety of people and situations, you don’t feel so different from everyone else. Almost every one could benefit...Read full review »

I agree with another listener that it would be better if there were new episodes instead of reruns, but it is still such good listening! (I suppose they have lots of other things to do too!)

This podcast helps me to understand a lot of things about myself, helps me with self realisation and self reflection. And understanding people around me better. Could you please let me know where can I listen to Season 1 and Season 2 episodes, I couldn’t find any.. I would love to catch up on...Read full review »

I love this podcast. It’s incredibly helpful - every episode is relatable even when I think it won’t be.
Mollyflower14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/24
Thank you for creating this show. I love advice columns and podcasts and this is my newest favorite. My girlfriend and I listen in the car on long drives and are just so frequently like “YES! WHAT A GREAT QUESTION TO ASK THIS PERSON!” … Lori and Guy, you are so compassionate and so skilled at...Read full review »

And I love this show. Guy and Lori are so smart and insightful and sensitive and loving. Even though their approaches are different from mine often times, I still learn so much and find their energy very inspiring and comforting and useful to me in my own work. Also, I love the format in which...Read full review »

I have learned so much about myself from just listening to the stories of other people. I’m excited to listen to the next episode.
missbritbrit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/24
I absolutely love this podcast. I'm so impressed with how insightful Lori and Guy are. One of the things that I love the most about it is how often I start out feeling judgemental about the people they work with, and how much dignity Lori and Guy give them. I also tend to feel that the...Read full review »

This show used to be great but I don’t know how you can say you’re in season four when all of the “new” episodes are repeated from previous seasons. Is an actually new episode ever going to happen?
amcs2323 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/23
Very relatable sessions. Entertaining and informative therapist engage on emails and with the writer for clarity. Way too many commercials. Uneven production quality.
JFWS2010 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/23
Used to like them but now they just do encores- stop republishing old shows if you’re not creating new material! They’re already in the archive. That’s greedy.
mcstruwig via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 12/19/23
I’ve enjoyed Lori Gottlieb's columns in the Atlantic for years and this podcast is also very informative and helpful. The best part is that there are nuggets in each episode for just about anyone trying to get better at this being human thingRead full review »
SS Chef via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/23
I have been listening to this show for weeks. I have learned lots while listening and thinking through the relationship scenarios. However, after listening to “Nora’s” unwanted pregnancy episode, I find it completely unforgivable that the two therapists ignored Nora’s biggest concern. You never...Read full review »

Hands down my favorite podcast. I always learn so much from Guy and Lori no matter the episode. As a brand new therapist this is like free education! Thank you for the content and your efforts to help so many people. Knowledge is therapy!
azstaciiiiii via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/23
Love the therapists on the show!! So eye opening and love listening.
shandsg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/23
Great podcast, helps me to better understand myself and gain a deeper understanding of my own woulds. I have been to therapy off/on as I have needed it and I still gain much from this podcast.
JT in 562 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/23
Dear Therapist is a wonderful podcast. The stories really draw you in and the therapists’ wise questions and thoughtful advice speak to so many life situations. They always leaving me thinking and mulling things over and applying the ideas and suggestions to my own life. And they are always,...Read full review »

If everyone listened to this podcast the world would be a significantly more healed. It’s so addictive and interesting. You will learn so much about yourself and relationships. Highly recommend.
3yeardthatsa1000tomorrows via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/26/23
Lori & Guy help the client (and me!) with advice specific enough to follow. They provide a script essentially for the hard conversations. Telling someone to have a conversation, to confront something, or to remain supportive but not enabling doesn’t do most of us much good. The question is...Read full review »
Reddmes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/23
I am very grateful for Guy and Lori Dear Therapist episodes. No subscription is required and when I listened to any episode that I can relate to, it’s like getting free therapy for myself. 🫶🏼
~yyt via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 11/17/23
Lori and Guy are so thoughtful and kind to all their guests! I love that they respect their guest’s pronouns and create an inclusive, safe environment for their guests. I have gotten a lot out of this show and look forward to new episodes every week!
inferno9920 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/23
As a therapist myself, I absolutely love the professionalism and apparent experience that emits off of these hosts in regards to therapy. This podcast is great for mental health professionals or anyone curious about what awesome and effective therapy looks like
Sophmcgoph via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/23
Lori and Guy are complementary to one another and clever, helpful and efficient … but the format of the show is so advertising heavy that it’s almost impossible to find the show content within the bla-bla. Such talent deserves a much better format with a focus on their excellence and not such...Read full review »

Great podcast to try to better understand yourself and relating to others. You get to overhear 2 therapists & a person discuss an issue. Overall this allows you to learn how we think and ways to make changes.
COhiker1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/23
Fantastic fast-paced sessions that present concerns which are universal to most people. As a therapist and an individual, I have learned so much from this podcast. Keep up the amazing work!
RiggsR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/23
This is a wonderful podcast that keeps me company on my walks (and gets me to walk farther so that I can keep listening — or crying along, as the case may be). I learn something in every episode. Lorrie and Guy show you the life-changing power of being deeply interested in your interlocutor, of...Read full review »
OutdatedVersion via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/06/23
I stumbled across this podcast when searching for advice about how to deal with the heartbreak, the awful grief I feel daily because my husband and I have split up after 23 years of marriage because of his choices to move outside of our union. We attended marriage counselling over two years that...Read full review »
NotJustIdeas via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/06/23
I learn from these conversations and appreciate the check-ins to see how the insight has translated into action. The therapists are skilled and pragmatic. I wonder why I only get season 2, however. I know there is a season 3 - is it behind a paywall?
Jfrensie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/23
Started listening bc I loved Lori’s book! Love them both now! You get something from every one! Even listening to older ones a second time and taking something that might not have resonated the first time!
Ginclark via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/23
Though the problems people come with are idiosyncratic to some extent, they are also problems that many can relate to. The advice Lori and Guy provide can be practiced by listeners as well. They underline the importance of open communication and bring forward shadows that many of us have and...Read full review »

Even if I don’t have the same relationship issue discussed, I learn something helpful for my own relationships, they suggest specific actions to take, and we hear back from the client on the result.
MaryLut via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/23
Absolutely love and appreciate this show. I am frequently blown away by Lori and Guy’s insightful compassionate responses to people’s personal dilemmas and predicaments. The homework they give is also very interesting and I’m amazed how they come up with such useful tasks. I definitely learn...Read full review »

This show is so helpful. Answers so many questions. Encouraging to hear people’s stories, inspired by their courage to be vulnerable. Please keep doing this work Guy & Lori!!
brickmile p via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/23
I’m not quite sure where to find this answer so I’m asking here. Does anyone know how to find season one? It seems to be missing from the list. Would absolutely love to know. Thanks!
FinSoleil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/23
Is it me or are episode 4 and 8 missing from season SO2? Love this podcast!
Celine Frida via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/23
I live out of the States and am pursuing counseling grad school in my country (we have to take tests to enroll). I’ve read both Lori and Guy’s books and they’ve been really helpful to me. And also the books you asked your client to read, like The Anxiety Toolkit. The podcast has been very...Read full review »
Ayodilinc via Apple Podcasts · Taiwan · 09/23/23
I love this podcast. Guy and Lori are so helpful. They are so considerate in what they say, and there is so much learning to be gained from their comments, whether or not, I have been experiencing a similar situation. Thanks so much for being there for us and for doing this great work!
Tbird1954 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/23
I’ve found this podcast so touching and helpful. By working through a specific case in each episode Guy and Lori are able to offer their listeners insight and actions that can be applied broadly to life’s problems. Highly recommend!!
Marnshfx via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/19/23
No matter the topic they’re addressing, there is always some nugget of wisdom that we all can use to make our own lives more meaningful. Guy and Lori are great. My husband and I listen to the podcasts together and discuss how we can use their advice to improve our own relationship.
Melissa4mayfield via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/23
I get something out of every episode. I often think “what would Lori and guy say?” when I’m faced with a problem. Highly recommend!
WatchTheSunrise via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/23
Love listening to this show. So much valuable insight about how to have healthy relationships with self and other and a window into how therapy works. Would love to hear more!
Emsmish via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/12/23
I love listening to Lori and Guy, even when the topic their dealing with isn’t something that applies to my life, I still get great takeaways from each session.
deeeeeee91 via Apple Podcasts · Nigeria · 09/12/23
No matter the topic, even if I don’t have experience with the exact situation, I ALWAYS hear nuggets of advice that resonate and I can apply in my own personal life! Lori’s book remains one of my favs of all time, which brought me to this podcast years ago, but I appreciate both her and Guy’s...Read full review »

Great show to help assist in the hard work we call life.
Char0826 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/30/23
I listen to lots of podcasts, but this is one of my absolute favourites! Lori and Guy do an amazing job of getting to the often, unexpected nub of people’s dilemmas. I really appreciate their follow up, and would love we to hear even more a year later or so. I appreciate how labour intensive a...Read full review »

I am so impressed with Guy and Lori’s skills and compassion. I love how authentic the guests are. I learn so much and value each episode. I also love the format where we get to hear back from the guests after their homework assignment. And I love the one year later bits too. Start at season one,...Read full review »
