Intimacy triggers us

Today’s episode of Unbreakable is a little different. I felt the need to talk about the shift in direction for Unbreakable – towards exploring love, intimacy and relationships. To do this, I have invited back my podcast interviewing expert friend, Alana Helbig from Untangled.
We talk about why I believe that as women we need more practical support as we manage the epic soulful evolutionary experience of relationships. Relationships are hard – not because we are with the wrong person or we are stuffing it up, but because intimacy by it’s very nature triggers us.

I share with you:
+ The big crisis / expansion points that have shifted my relationship over the years
+ My theory on intimacy triggering us and how it is so often mistaken for us being with the wrong partner
+ How marriage as an institution is evolving and changing with the times
+ How relationships are like mortality – they don’t last forever and why this is a good thing
+ My big tips for shifting the energy of your relationship without changing him

Enjoy xx
