Attachment Styles, Communication in Relationships, Fear of Commitment and Healthy Boundaries — Lisa Scott

Attachment Styles, Communication in Relationships, Fear of Commitment and Healthy Boundaries — Lisa Scott

“Trauma isn’t what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you.”

Gabor Maté

This post highlights some of the resources by Lisa Scott listened to, recently which I enjoyed so much. In fact, I have been listening to this podcast on repeat. So, here is backstory. In the second week of April 2021, I was feeling deep emotional pain and heartache. I’ve been in the process of understanding and uncovering my own childhood issues and trauma. I had heard Gabor Mate and other Legendaries mention about parent-child attachments during early years and how it shapes our relationships with ourselves and with others when we grow older.

I searched “attachment” on Spotify and this new podcast from Lisa popped up. As I started listening—I was completely thrilled and it resonated with me so much that I could go back (in my mind) to my childhood and see some deep things with less resistance and better clarity.

Hence, I decided to list down all the podcast episodes I listened to in a week so that you can also learn about attachment styles and their close siblings.

Lisa Scott is a licensed professional counselor and host of her own podcast, What’s Next With Lisa Scott. Lisa is well known for her solution based and client focused style of therapy. Aside from hosting her own podcast, Lisa owns a private practice, and is a professor of psychology. With over fifteen years of experience as a mental health professional and experience ranging from crisis intervention in a clinical setting to working with families and individuals, Lisa’s  passion and focus remains on empowering people to establish healthy loving relationships not only with themselves but with others in their life .

Lisa’s podcast is for all ages and all walks all life. If you’re human this podcast is for you. Lisa Scott is a licensed professional counselor who has developed techniques to start living a more authentic, fulfilled life, by taking common theories from the therapy world and making them relatable and something people can connect to. Anger, sadness, anxiety, self worth, authenticity and how to take your power back are just of the the concepts she discusses.

This podcast is brought to you by Friday Newsletter. If you’d like to learn more about what I am reading, new documentaries, what I am learning new, recent podcast updates, things I am experimenting with, or anything —which I share extensively in my weekly short and sweet “Friday Newsletter”. No spam ever! I hate that too!
