How your parents and past shape who you are today | Julia Samuel
From bickering at Christmas dinners to mourning lost loved ones, family is there through thick and thin. Julia Samuel MBE is an author, podcast host and one of the UK’s leading psychotherapists who can help us better understand and communicate with our families.
Whether it be understanding the origins of sibling rivalry, learning that trauma is passed through generations or making sense of how our upbringing shape our adult life, this conversation encourages us to have challenging and honest dialogues with our loved ones - and better process our own emotions.
