In this episode, I discuss the vital role of repairing ruptures in relationships – diving into the significance of mutual understanding, empathy, and consistent repair as foundational elements for building trust and deep emotional connections. I talk about the importance of addressing unresolved issues early on to prevent lingering negativity and nurture intimacy.

#323: Sourcing Emotional and Physical Needs

In this solo episode, I break down the behavioural patterns of minimizing our needs in relationship, which often stem from childhood experiences (you saw that one coming, right?!). It’s so important to honour our own needs and not settle for less. So let's cut the BS! Claim who you are, what you want, and what you’re going to create with your life. Be available to availability, set boundaries, tell the truth and clean up agreements. Hear your own voice and claim what you desire - free from needing the other person to change - then YOU are free to change and choose the life, love, and experience you want! To have the great love and great relationship you want - you MUST move forward telling the truth, creating NEW patterns, and reclaiming what you desire. You in?!

How to Relationship Better with John Kim & Vanessa Bennett

John Kim (aka The Angry Therapist) and Vanessa Bennett are not only licensed therapists and relationship coaches but master plate spinners. Writing books, hosting podcasts, creating mental health content, and raising their toddler are just a few of those spinning plates. Before their worlds collided, they each experienced the painful expiration of long term relationships which thrust them into their inner journeys, personal therapy, therapy school, and helping thousands of people relationship better. As a couple, they are committed to being transparent about their baggage, bullsh*t, and the slippery knots of their own imperfect relationship to help illuminate the surprising issues that hinder all of us from finding, enjoying, and sustaining love.

Listener Love

Passionate and raw

Mark is one of the best, he will force you to look into yourself and see yourself in a way that can only make you better. Truly wonderful. Thanks Mark!!!!

Fascinating and inspiring

Love this podcast!!! Never boring, always full of lightbulb moments!! And a great sense of humor too to keep the tough stuff light.

Expansion of the mind and self.

I find myself returning to this podcast again and again. As life has carried me through quite the journey the last few years, I find peace and understanding in the topics Mark covers and the way he approaches them. Often times I am moved to tears because I relate so deeply, or find myself simply feeling seen and understood. There is so much to learn here by simply listening.

The best relationship podcast out there

I listen to many relationship oriented podcasts and there are many great ones. Mark’s is the best because of how he picks his guests, how the topics are relatable on so many levels, and how encouraging and inspiring he is. ❤️

Authentic alignment

Mark Groves says it perfectly every time, he is impeccable in the way he uses words to reach the deepest parts of your true self and does not hold back, always refreshing and empowering listening to him speak as well as with his guests. I will always recommend!

Highly recommend

I absolutely love listening to everything Mark has to say! Just listen. It will change your life in many ways. It really has done that for me.

Therapist approved!

I have a love for learning (for human behavior) and admittedly could qualify for podcast addiction! I’ve listened to many of Mark Groves Podcasts and as a therapist myself, I can tell you the information is correct. Unfortunately, I’ve listened to other podcasts where the advice suggested could have unintended consequences if that person is not prepared to utilize that advice. On another note, he scores many guests that are at the top of their field. As Mark talks, I hear him correct himself and do the work in real-time. He has the most important attributes of human growth-radical accountability and radical compassion. And was gifted with a “radio-voice” that is easy to pay attention to.

 

Deep, authentic & actionable

Mark shares his wisdom with candor, humility and authenticity. He has a way of inviting the listener to deepen their own thoughts— to grow into a more vibrant lived experience with themselves and others. Mark brings forward conversations with some of the worlds most thought provoking and brilliant thinkers, creators, and scientists. I feel lucky to have Mark’s extensive podcast catalog available any time I need support or another approach to life’s journey.

Love love love

Mark groves podcast has truly changed my life and how I see the world. His words and the guests that he brings on his podcast are true inspiration to personal growth. ❤️

Grateful

What a delight it is to listen to this podcast. I am in total admiration for the full spectrum discussions and enlivening conversations taking place here. Mark, thank you for sharing your truth and heart with us and all your guests for their brave and wondrous expertise on such potent areas of important and life changing topics. Keep the good energy flowing and thank you from the depth of my being. Rock on 🤙🏽
