This podcast is the narrated version of my article A Quick Therapeutic Exercise That Boosts Emotional Resilience.
It’s well known now that gratitude is a key part of an emotionally balanced life. We can help our clients integrate this into their lives but must be careful that we don’t end up making them feel guilty instead.
In this episode I talk about:
- The worried well
- Whose life is it anyway?
- Gratitude and suffering
- A therapeutic exercise to help your client practise gratitude.
