Iâm looking forward to hearing every episode. Love it
I have a Therapist crush- your my role and I thrive to be as great as you are. Thank you! As a therapist the sessions are so helpful.
She is so versed and intuitive with her clients. She is able to give both partners one anotherâs perspective. Sheâs equitable and digs deep w/each individual of the couple, to ease their way out of themselves and their own pain, to open to the other to entertain the importance of empathizing w/ your mate.
Even though some of the issues discussed don't directly relate to my own life, I always hear at least one piece of advice to take away from each episode.
Anyone can benefit from this podcast. Itâs not just about marriage, sex, or infidelity. There are so many amazing things she touches on to help in many different relationships. My new favorite podcast!
One of a kind podcast that I love to listen to being a therapist myself. Itâs always great to hear someone elseâs craft!
She is much more a self-help guru than a therapist. She is too much in the center of almost every interaction. She is overly directive and seems to have no sense of who she is for the couple (transference awareness). The danger is that the clients are compliant to her forceful interventions and framing. You wonder if those forced interventions will take hold. An indicator that this is not therapy is that the session is about how great Esther Perel is and not how much the couple is struggling and working through the issues.
I love the host. She is so brilliant.
This show is freaking amazing. It is unlike anything in podcasting.
I adore Esther. She is fair and concise. Every episode has been so great for different reasons. Even the episodes I think I wouldnât relate to, always end up giving me some sort of clarity on a marital issue that maybe already happened or I could see happening in the future. Told my husband to listen too. What a great idea for a podcast. This could help a lot of couples!
This podcast makes me laugh, cry and rethink myself and my relationships. I love Esther Perel so much and will listen to anything she puts out.
Iâve never donât therapy and am not married â I didnât have high expectations that Iâd connect with this podcast. I couldnât be more wrong. Estherâs insights continually catch you off guard. The conversations are fascinating and I learned something new every single episode. All in all itâs fascinating. MORE PLEASE!!
Great insight how we all bring our unresolved issues into relationships and most of these are early childhood familial and cultural conditioning. The therapy is great to get to "what" the issue is but usually lacks in figuring out "how" to resolve these issues.
An exercise in perspectives; a lesson to learn in every episode
Esther Perez has unique insight into the complexities of modern relationships.
This podcast is not entertaining in its content but it IS exactly what it says it is. Itâs couples therapy sessions each one a different topic with different couples. Esther is smart and so insightful and thoughtful. If you are interested in intimate relationships, and the things that inform them, you will love this.
So heart wrenching and so beautiful.
Only 2 episodes in And I'm hooked.
Should be rated PG=prime garbage
None of these situations relate to me objectively, yet I find myself so moved by the relatable struggles in every episode. Esther is like a magician, intuitively leading each couple towards new truths. 100 stars!
Itâs amazing to listen to REAL, RAW couples therapy for us married couples out here who can benefit from afar. Thank you.
Raw, eye opening and interesting. Can't stop listening. Esther is amazing and I really appreciate how much these couples open up to her and each other.
I love her. She gives great insight and professional/neutral guidance on relatable issues between couples. Glad i found this !
I canât speak highly enough about Esther Perel. She is an excellent communicator, highly skilled and knowledgeable, funny and thoughtful, without driving her own agenda - the only agenda is guiding her clients to their own resolution. Iâve learned so much and am humbled by the authenticity, candor and vulnerability her clients bring to such an intimate glimpse of their lives.
Free therapy ;)
*****Esther is brilliant! I learn from every single episode...so so good. I love her!
Absolutely one of the best podcasts Iâve had the pleasure to listen to!
Really fascinating podcast. I love the human stories and thoughtful commentary.
Iï¸ love her she is so fantastic!!!!
Interesting and entertaining. Goes to show that the problems that appear at the surface aren't always the main matters that are affecting relationships. She digs deep.
I love Ester! She just gets it. She is firm and can cut through like fire but it is never judgmental because it is matched with compassionate listening. Plus I've learned so much about my sexual life! So goood!
Love, love, love this podcast and Esther! Canât wait for more.
As a budding therapist myself I am amazed at Estherâs natural ability to reframe, guide, and challenge each couple. I am curious if there were more couples sessions and only the flawless ones were chosen? Esther seems so natural and at ease in the room with difficult issues, I hope to aspire to her level of competency and confidence.
I applaud these people for sharing these stories. They probably have no idea how many people they are helping by being so brave! Bravo ððð
My husband and I have been through 6-8 marriage counselors. I wish that we would have had the chance to meet with her.
Love this podcast. Insightful, exciting, educational. Every time I listen I learn something new about relationships and love.
As a mental health professional and wife, I'm hooked on this podcast. You can relate to some of these couples and learn more about yourself, all at the same. Ester is brilliant!
I started listening with cynicism. 10-15 minutes into that first episode, I realized I was no longer raking leaves; I was standing stock still, drinking in every word. I am awed by the people in these sessions: the raw honesty and genuine decency is humbling and hopeful. Esther Perel strikes at the heart of things, but never, never does she disrespect her clients or their pain. This is the real deal. It has shown me different ways of approaching my own relationship problems, and has given me hope. Itâs also forced me to confront, at least momentarily, my responsibilities within my own relationships. Itâs not always comfortable, but she is so present, you feel supported, even as just a listener. Please do more of these; theyâre practically a public service. Thank you for the privilege of entering this world.
This podcast is amazing! Estherâs insight navigates everyone participating through any issue with such grace - with the right amount of tenderness and just the right amount of nudge that you canât fool her or yourself. Thank you to those on the podcast who have shared their stories to all! Such courage!
This womanâs podcasts and books have changed my life.
This is one of my favorite podcasts. I love Estherâs voice. Each episode shines light on a different aspect of a couples relationship. I learn so much to apply to my own marriage and enjoy listening at the same time. The diversity makes me emotional; as a minority, this is important to me (and adds an interesting aspect in my opinion). With every episodes end, I hear the love in the couples voices when they speak to each other and I feel like Iâm listening to a real life fairy tale.
Sheâs fabulous! I wish she were my therapist! She lets nothing get past her, but sheâs still warm and compassionate. AND she has a great sense of humor. More, please.
She is a brilliant therapist, and despite any criticism demystifying and educating the public of the counseling process is most definitely a good thing.
Thank you for this glimpse into such a private world.
Not only are these stories beautifully told, with Esther Perel getting to the heart of the matter, but honestly it helps me try to relate to my partner and rethink my relationships
Fascinating, insightful, gives hope.
