How Therapy Helps

Therapist and best-selling author Lori Gottlieb shares how we can uncover our blind spots and transform our lives. Her ideas can help you examine aspects of your narrative that hold you back and discover how changing your stories can change your life.

"Part of getting to know yourself is to unknow yourself – to let go of limiting stories you’ve told yourself about who you are so you can live your life." ~ Lori Gottlieb

This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at an Action for Happiness event on 27th July 2022.
