How to Heal Ourselves with Helen Hicks (Episode 73)

In this episode I’m joined by therapist and author Helen Hicks. We will talk about how Covid impacted the mental health industry and the shortage of mental health professionals in our country. Learn how to find hope in these times; how to relieve anxiety through proven techniques; how our beliefs impact our mental health; proven ways to change dysfunctional beliefs and behavior patterns; and the importance of self compassion. Helen also shared what is was like growing up with a mother who was a paranoid schizophrenic and how it shaped her belief system and led her to becoming a therapist. She also shares ways to simplify the complexities of parenting to raise mentally healthy children.
