I tell everyone about this podcast. Itâs 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.
Esther Perel is absolutely amazing at getting couples to really talk to each other. I learn something about myself in every episode.
This is a great podcast! Canât wait for more episodes.
I dare to say Iâve 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. Donât give up until youâve listened! And, read her books, Mating in Captivity and State of Affairs. Dr. Perel is a genius!
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.
These episodes are SO good. Even if the problems arenât in your own life, there are small things that you can glean and apply to your own relationships. Iâve 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 sheâs working with. I hope thereâs more to come. Thank you for letting us eavesdrop for the sake of our health and relationships.
Love this podcast! Hopefully it keeps going.
Cannot recommend Ester strongly enough. Iâve learned so much about myself, negative habits, coping skills, insights into my relationships, etc.
you have a chance to solve your problems, to understand your marriage, just try to listen and meditate. Itâs like therapy for me. Thanks! â¤ï¸
Love every word. Estherâs brilliance around human behavior, her timing, and how she bottom-lines it for her clients is impeccable. Iâm hooked and have learned so much.
Ugh. Canât listen to anything past this.
Would love to listen to new episodes!
I LOVE this podcast - by far one of my favorites of all time. I hope they create more episodes!! Ester has such a fantastic and unique point of view, and really gives wonderful, empathetic, realistic advice. I think we all need some of her words of wisdom!
Brutally honest and insightful. Iâm drawn in and mesmerized during each episode. Only wish the episodes came more frequently! Canât wait for the next season.
I am a podcast lover, I usually try different podcast to see what spark my interest. Since I discovered this podcast, I cannot get enough. Thank you Esther and every person who find the courage to share their issues with the world. This podcast is very insightful and inspirational.
Itâs fascinating and riveting to be a fly on the wall of these therapy sessions and get a glimpse into the private lives of others. I could listen to a thousand episodes of this podcast and never get bored.
Esther is a genius!
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.
I really enjoy this show. Being a fly on the wall in these counseling sessions is amazing! I feel like I am learning so many things about relationships, myself, and the other people in my relationships. I think listening to this podcast has made me a more receptive, and hopefully better, person.
I love this podcast and Esther itâs one of my favorites thank you!
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.
Great concept, fascinating to listen to and can help you get a little marriage and relationship advice for free if you listen closely! Great pod!
It is easy to trust one's own analysis. It is much more difficult to listen. I have learned so much about my relationships and myself from listening to this podcast. I have learned how to be a better listener. I am deeply grateful for this experience.
I've listened to season 1 and 2, and I'm looking forward to the next one. I recommend it to everyone. I've learned so much about romantic and family relationships from Esther. She's incredible.
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! Iâm definitely going to buy Estherâs books.
I devoured every one of these episodes. Ester has a way of unpacking peopleâs 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!
Heâs the one who cheated and sheâs the one who ended up apologizing. Esther did a wrong thing there.
She is amazing at what she does! Love this show! I hope she never stops.
I love this podcast...waiting for more episodes.
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 canât 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. Itâs worth the listen and the self reflection, a truly powerful podcast. I donât think there were many episodes that didnât bring me to tears. I hope this podcast continues as long as possible.
Love Esther, she covers everything clearly understood thank you
My wife and I discovered Esther through her amazing Ted Talks. Her first book âMating in Captivityâ 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. Estherâs 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.
I love it and can't wait for more episodes!!!
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.
I really am captivated by this podcast. I love the common sense, approach to approach people in love, grace and compassion.
I have followed Esther since 2013 and have loved her approach and insights via her books and public speaking engagements. This podcast takes it to a whole new level.. I pull gems of wisdom and life lessons from every episode! I feel greater empathy and understanding of my own behaviors as well as a different perspective on others. Bravo Audible.. thank you for bringing this fantastic individual into my weekly commute!
If you are married, in a relationship, or plan to be in a relationship then listen in on these couples and learn from them. Itâs 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.
This podcast has helped me so much as a therapist AND as a partner
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!
Esther Perez is a brilliant woman. This podcast opened my eyes and gave me the language to describe my own relationship. Very profound.
The topics are truly amazing and could relate to few of the topics.The solution and explanation is totally different from what I thought.Yes I do listen at work. Thanks keep doing this!!Suman
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.
These sessions make you think about your own relationship and where you could do a little house cleaning and introspection. Nothing shocks her and nothing disgusts her. Dr Ruth in a modern young package!
Very informative and helpful
This is a great podcast. What Esther Perel does here is a public service. By letting us eavesdrop on her clientsâ 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 is truly magic. She has a way of facilitating genuine and raw conversations. Iâve learned so much through these episodes, and it gets me thinking about ways I can be a better partner. Please release the next season!
Iâm having Where shall we begin withdrawal, hurry!
Love the podcast but i just wanna say how full of crap is the man in season 2 episode 7. I tried to be open minded but the crap was too obvious.
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. Itâs wonderful to hear people be so honest about their experiences. Every episode is different and provides new insight into your own relationships.
