Practice of Being Seen
About This Show
Everyone is driven by the basic human need to be seen, heard, and understood. What does it means to really see ourselves and the people and events around us? How does that influence how we show us and how we ask to be seen? Teaming up as a relationship therapist and a storytelling coach, we’ll be diving into how our stories shape our relationships and how our relationships shape our stories. Through interviews and solo sessions, we will be opening a space for discovery and healing.

Ep 23: Life Revolves Around Relationships: A Conversation with Neil Sattin
4 days ago
What got Neil Sattin into his work as a couples coach and host of the popular Relationship Alive podcast? Believe it or not, it was dog training! In working with dogs and their owners, Neil discovered that he loved coaching people in relationship. We go way beyond puppy love in this episode…. You know we love storytelling on the POBScast, and we also know that “stories” can be tricky, especially when it comes the stories a person can tells about herself, her partner, and her relationship. Neil helps us unpack when stories are helpful and when they perpetuate illusions. If you have conclusions about your partner, there’s a good chance the relationship will conclude, says Neil. We play with the whole “be present” thing. Is it always possible and even desirable to be present in every moment? Conscious timeouts are key to relational harmony. Relationships change over time. We talk about how humor and clear communication about your needs can help couples shape “a story of now” and keep growing together. Neil shares his professional and podcasting journey. We love that he credited meditation and the mystical for helping him find his way. (And we know it took a lot of laser focus and determination too!) And, we dish a little bit on what it’s like to learn from one of the biggest names in the personal development world, Tony Robbins. Such rich territory as we talk about expectations, the art of generative questioning, and stepping outside of the story so that it can rewrite itself.
