In this episode of The Life Shift Podcast, my guest, Ryan Gottfredson, a leadership development author, researcher, and consultant, shares his journey to understanding his relationship with his parents, his emotional struggles, and how his lack of emotional support as a child has left him with difficulty building certain emotions. He also dives into how different therapy modalities can help rewire your brain to function more healthily.
“What we've discovered is that my parents, I mean, they were always married. They went to almost every basketball game I ever played, right? They were there for me physically. But what I discovered is they were not there for me emotionally for me, you know? So, two years ago, I would have been 37; I'm starting this therapy process, and right now, at 37, it hits me as all during my upbringing, I was emotionally neglected.”
Ryan shares how he connects with his younger self and how giving himself some much-needed love can enable healing. Ryan also talks about the benefits of EMDR for overcoming psychological trauma and the neuroscience of psychological trauma and its impact on the mind. Finally, he explores how uncovering trauma through therapy can be essential to healing.
