Therapy works if you work it

Rating: ★★★★★

I tell everyone about this podcast. It’s makes you think about your relationships to other people and to yourself without ever being a self help vibe. Her ability to say the perfect word to describe a feeling leaves me in awe every time.

So insightful!

Esther Perel is absolutely amazing at getting couples to really talk to each other. I learn something about myself in every episode.

I dare to say I’ve learned just as much, if not more about myself, my ex-partner and the relationship we had together than I did in all my years of therapy. This podcast gives me hope for suffering relationships. Don’t give up until you’ve listened! And, read her books, Mating in Captivity and State of Affairs. Dr. Perel is a genius!

If only you could find therapists like her more commonly in the US!

Life altering

We can learn from others' mistakes and welcome a new day for our relationship. Listen as Perel peels back layers of anger, fear, shame and hopelessness to reveal the fascinating humans we really are...or can be, with an open mind. I recognized my behavior patterns and emotional pitfalls in several episodes. We are more similar than we think. I urge you to listen with an open heart and I'm confident you'll find wisdom and answers as I did.

An excellent use of time for all of us

These episodes are SO good. Even if the problems aren’t in your own life, there are small things that you can glean and apply to your own relationships. I’ve recommended it to all my friends and family, some single, some with partners. Esther has a wonderful ability to build rapport, see through what someone is saying, and bring much needed insight into the situation. She also readily admits when she does something wrong, which gains trust and shows such a respect for the people she’s working with. I hope there’s more to come. Thank you for letting us eavesdrop for the sake of our health and relationships.

I love to listen to this show while working around the house are driving around town. The conversations that couples are able to have during these in-depth interviews are open and honest and hard and raw. I love when Ester calls someone out, and then encourages and help them dig deeper for the truth.

This series is outstanding and I am deeply appreciative of the couples willing to discuss their issues. She is masterful at bringing out points of discussion and facilitating each person and at the same time she calls out bad behavior. This is a great podcast.

I was introduced to this podcast an excerpt was featured on This American Life. Listening to this podcast has rescued my relationship. I lacked the ability to communicate my needs and that led to serious frustration and a breakup. I now have the language to communicate through it and the perspective to know where I have been neglectful of him. This podcast excites me. It really has changed my life. I am so grateful because I have the love of my life back! I’m definitely going to buy Esther’s books.

Insightful, unexpected, captivating

I devoured every one of these episodes. Ester has a way of unpacking people’s issues to reveal the REAL dynamics and motivations that underlie their behavior. She adds a level of depth and respect to her clients experiences that could easily be dismissed with pop-psychology.You never end up where you expect to. This lady knows her stuff!

by Deectiomnibus on Jul 24, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

With psychiatry being so stigmatized in our culture this show brings people into the room and helps to humanize the practice. You get to walk with people through the challenges of poor and uninformed perspectives, assumptive thoughts, implied communications, and childhood trauma. Esther does a brilliant job of unweaving where destructive thoughts and actions stem from to help not only the people on the podcasts but also those listening along who may have thought or done the same things. I can’t think of anything better to help people grow personally than to hear these types of challenges and problems be addressed in a coherent manner with a professional explaining along the process. It’s worth the listen and the self reflection, a truly powerful podcast. I don’t think there were many episodes that didn’t bring me to tears. I hope this podcast continues as long as possible.

The best !!! Excited for more , is April 27th the last of this season 2?

My wife and I discovered Esther through her amazing Ted Talks. Her first book “Mating in Captivity” transformed our relationship and the way we were able to talk about intimacy. We love stepping inside these sessions and have learned something from each one. Esther’s talent as a therapist is undeniable. We find her absolutely brilliant and appreciate that she and these couples have allowed us to learn through them.

So amazing how much I could take out for myself!!!

WOW. Listening to these sessions with couples that have gone to Esther Perel is eye-opening in many, many ways. It is rather difficult for me to listen to becasue I have felt many of the things that the patients discuss. Some of those things were painful. To listen to the things Esther says to them is absolutely amazing and I have learned a lot.

If you are married, in a relationship, or plan to be in a relationship then listen in on these couples and learn from them. It’s incredible to hear the pain & struggle of couples and seeing them overcome it. This Podcast has taught me to better communicate in my relationship, during our couples counseling sessions, and a happier and better lover. PLEASE SHARE THIS PODCAST with friends and family.

Listening to this show is putting me in the right frame of mind to be a better listener in my relationship. Thank you! Thank you Esther and to all the couples who have generously shared their experiences so that others like myself can learn and be better in our relationships. I have heard it many times how important it is to use empathic listening / reflective listening. It is literally relationship 101. So simple yet so hard to consistently develop as a habit. Listening to the show and listening to the technique of reflective listening applied over and over to different situations is reminding me of how important it is to build this habit in my relationship ship. Thank you!

I recommend this to everyone, not just couples.

She hears a whole different and much deeper conversation going on between a couple. I love her own personal review and insight that she has about herself and choices she makes in the sessions. I binged all of these and it has left me wanting more. Highly recommended.

This is a great podcast. What Esther Perel does here is a public service. By letting us eavesdrop on her clients’ conversations and on her own thoughts, she is helping people like me learn more about the underlying patterns in our own lives, about our deepest motivations, and about the human condition.

Esther delves into issues that I think many couples encounter over the course of their marriage or partnership - though sometimes presented in the extreme in the sessions. It’s wonderful to hear people be so honest about their experiences. Every episode is different and provides new insight into your own relationships.
