Description

It's that time again, it's our season finale!

And this week on Best Friend Therapy, we thought it fitting to send you into the break with an episode all about uncertain times.

We explore how cultural events such as the pandemic, the cost of living crisis and economic uncertainty can manifest in anxiety, and we also examine the potential for growth and change therein.

We suggest that certainty might not be the only antidote to uncertainty, if we can find other ways to settle and soothe our nervous systems.

Emma helps us recognise the difference between dread and excitement and Elizabeth explains why she's always nice to Siri.
