Adam Lane Smith - Episode 152

“If you live your life trying to get the approval of everybody around you, then you will never really approve of yourself, and nobody meaningful will ever approve of you”

Most people have trust issues in their relationships and they don’t even realise it. They fail at the first hurdle of Trust and never allow their relationships to flourish by getting to Trust level 4.

Adam Lane Smith is an Attachment Specialist and draws from his wealth of clinical experience and personal insight. His journey began helping the inmates of prisons to see themselves in a different light.

Now, he is helping to re-write the belief about how human connection is supposed to function. Adam teaches honesty, direct communication, clear boundaries, and measurable levels of trust, to build secure and healthy relationships.

This is one you will want to have on repeat. Great chat with a legend of a bloke!!
