Therapy: June 2020 podcast listening list

Podcast Brunch Club listening list: Therapy.
We all know that health is important. But, often times we limit our perception of health to that of our physical body, rather than emotional health and well-being. Meanwhile, anxiety, loneliness, and depression have become pervasive problems. Professional help to cope with mental health problems comes in many forms. This month’s podcast listening list looks at various forms of therapy and how they may/may not help people cope with mental health struggles.

(Thanks to Ana, of our London and Bournemouth chapters, for curating this month’s listening list).
