This podcast is the narrated version of my article 3 Healing Ways To Help A Client Manage Their Toxic Mother.

Toxic people can severely disrupt the quality of a client’s life if not dealt with properly. Handling toxic people can be difficult, so a good therapist needs to show their clients how to go about it.

In this episode I talk about:

  • The toxic fallout from Mommie Dearest
  • Feeding the mouth that bites you
  • Abuse from the narcissist
  • You can only get what there is to get
  • How to plan a ‘detox’
  • How to deal with the fears behind it

Or watch this episode of the podcast on video below:

The study found that 90 per cent of those who had visualized themselves from an outsider’s perspective reported voting, while only 72 per cent of those who imagined voting from a first-person perspective did. Additionally, those who used the third-person perspective reported feeling more strongly about the importance of voting.
