What if that cellulite, or the big spider didn’t have such a hold over you? What if you could realise that it’s all just a bunch of stories we’re making up? Behavioral plans, mindsets, hard work and willpower are NOT where deep, sustainable change comes from, says my guest Dr Amy Johnson who is known for her ability to help people create lasting change. Amy Johnson PhD is a psychologist, coach, author, and speaker who shares a groundbreaking new approach that helps people find true, lasting freedom from unwanted habits via insight rather than willpower.

I so enjoyed this conversation for the aha’s that happened the whole way through, realising just how much the made up stories impact the unfolding of our lives - if we let them! If you are held back by fear, can’t break your negative self talk or habits that aren’t serving you, this show is a must. Enjoy!

Dr. Amy Johnson is a coach, speaker, and author of several books including Being Human. Her work revolves around the basic truth that we are fundamentally content and peaceful by nature. Amy has been featured on The Steve Harvey Show and Oprah.com, as well as in The Wall Street Journal and Self Magazine. Today we’re going to talk about separate realities in relationships—the idea that each of us is living in a world made of our own thoughts, beliefs, and opinions and that the world we see is very different than the world our partner sees. An understanding of separate realities goes a very long way in reducing conflict and fostering compassion and understanding.
