    "Profound"

    Deeply profound . The vulnerability, the honesty, the willingness for this couple to he be there for each other and above all the compassionate wisdom of Esther. I listened to 9 episodes in less then 24 hours. I cried and laughed with all the couples as I struggle with my own issues . For ever grateful

    "Probably the weakest in the series"
    Any additional comments?

    This episode, while good, was not great. I enjoyed the others much more. In part it's probably because this is the one I could least relate to. So your mileage may vary.

    "Breathtakingly Poignant"

    This one hit home for me; putting in words many things that I couldn't articulate. By listening in on these sessions, it is as if I'm going through therapy too. Thanks you!

    "This really resonated with me."

    I think that this story is one of those which resonated with me the most. A pity that the audio is not optimal. I can hear Esther very well but not the couple.

    "What a beautiful session..."

    So touched listening to this session (actually all sessions). Esther Perel has the insight and more importantly her own way to get people open up and look into themselves deeply.... So lucky I found these! Thank you for making these available for us!! Esther is my favourite author... I listen to everything I can find about her work...

    "Good enough"

    A couple struggles with self critical shame and dealing with reality of lost dreams and new opportunities. Good advice.

    "This entire series is awesome"

    I love this series.

    Ester is incredible at what she does and I think hearing these sessions will get rid of stigma/misunderstanding around therapy and be healing for hurting couples. And it's enlightening for how you can improve before any issues arise. I love the mix of session and narrations. Wonderful all around.

    "Wonderful pod cast "

    Every time I listen to Esther work with a couple I learn something that helps me in my own relationship. Even though the topic may have nothing to do with me the issues between couples and how they communicate can usually be applied to any relationship. This episode examines how assumptions can lead to misunderstandings and how being afraid to ask for what you want can lead to resentments and loneliness . Check it out!
