This podcast is the narrated version of my article Deconstructing Double Binds.

Clients can find themselves in catch-22, no-win, psychological double binds which seem impossible to escape. A vigilant practitioner will spot these and help create new options that the client hadn’t considered, thereby dissolving the double bind.

In this episode I talk about:

  • How double binds glue emotional problems in place
  • Why you need to look for the pay-off
  • How changing one part of the pattern can change everything
