Unqualified nonsense

Dangerous unqualified nonsense with a click bate title. Definitely NOT for anyone actually suffering from anxiety. She actually says in her disclaimer that this is not for therapeutic use and is only for entertainment purposes! How is spouting your pessimistic ideas of the nature of anxiety entertaining!? Could be damaging to someone in a sensitive state of mind! Irresponsible, especially now!

Heart-warming and enriching

This podcast really helped me at an extremely anxious point in my life to understand and respect the nature of anxiety as well as the many unhelpful coping strategies I had developed to combat it. I feel more able to work alongside my anxiety now, to move towards a life of greater meaning and purpose.

Too much chit chat

Way way too much chit chat. Especially at the begging. When transmuting true wisdom and knowledge it should be distilled and easily digestible. I don’t care about your personal life your degree your bla bla bla. If you’re very patient you can get through this and learn a lot but I have over 200 books in my library waiting for me. Sorry but not worth it even if it’s free.

Great Podcast!!

I just finished all episodes of Sarah’s podcast and it is hands down one of the most helpful and knowledge packed anti-anxiety tools I have ever read or listened to. Her and all of her guests, give their own views of their own anxiety struggles and it made me realize that I’m first of all not alone in this struggle, but it also gave me information that help me understand why I feel this way and it gave me tools to learn to cope with it better! Thank you Sarah and everybody involved in making this GREAT podcast!

I love Sarah's focus on helping the other person and being really present to their situation. she is using her personal experience to offer ideas without ever making it about her.

Beautifully done.

Love it!

I put my original review in the wrong place... on the trailer episode. I'm finding that listening and relating to other people's experience with anxiety has been very helpful. I recommend listening to this if you have anxiety.
