Navigating heartbreak can often feel insurmountable. But what if we used it as fuel to become our highest and best self? What if in each heartbreak we asked ourselves "how do I learn from the lesson that closed off my heart?" Learning how to open our hearts  in a space that feels safe after heartbreak is one of the biggest lessons we can learn. If we continue to ask ourselves "how can I be better?" and then begin to implement those changes, we begin to curate a life aligned in integrity and...

This topic is so important and yet so rarely discussed. That’s why I’m so appreciative that Holly Grigg-Spall has joined me this week to discuss the contraceptive pill.

In doing so, Holly walks us through the research that is often overlooked and the various reasons we avoid having these conversations. I’m so...

One of the most popular videos I’ve ever recorded was ‘why do men follow Instagram models?’ So I wanted to dive deeper into a topic that is so complex and often controversial. This week I introduce my good friend Dr. Laura McNally who is a psychologist that has been writing on this topic for some years.

I am so excited to have Terri Cole back to dive deeper into codependency. I very much identify as recovering codependent, so there is no judgement at all when I say that so many of us have codependent traits that are holding us back from life and love. So many of us think we are helping others and that we would be selfish if we stopped caretaking other people’s needs. It’s human to want to care for others, it’s human to have deep empathy, but we cannot save people from themselves. We often...

After the murder of George Floyd and the protests across the globe that have followed, I have received hundreds of questions on the topic. The question that so many of you asked is ‘how do I have hard conversations about race?’ For many of us, we need to find ways to engage with our partners, family, friends and colleagues on issues that might be completely outside of our previous experience. Now is the time to step into the work of not only educating ourselves on racism but also leading...

First, we look at whether we should leave when the passion dies, and why is it that passion often fades in long term relationships?! Next, we dive further into the subject of emotional unavailability. We explore the...

There are so many gaps in our awareness and so many...
