TMM PODCAST EPISODE 016: On Relationships and Self-Discovery with Deirdre Fay

During the menopausal period, women often rethink their relationships. They start to question the meanings of the different relationships in their lives. This phase also calls for the rediscovery of self.

In this episode, we have Deirdre Fay, a licensed clinical social worker, who is the author of Attachment-Based Yoga and Meditation For Trauma Recovery. She also wrote Becoming Safely Embodied Skills Manual. Aside from these two books, she co-authored a psychology book entitled Attachment and Disturbances in Adults.

Deirdre connects contemporary thought with ancient wisdom. Through this, you can have access to what feels right to you and have harmonious relationships. She also shares valuable insights on how you can healthily deal with your triggers. Tune in to the episode if you want useful information on how to deal with self-discovery and relationships.
