(Subscribe on iTunesStitcher, Spotify, iHeart or TuneIn)

Low in energy? Constantly feel like you don’t have enough time? Always doing stuff for other people and never for yourself? If you can relate to any of these, it’s likely that you’re not setting and affirming boundaries as well as you could be… and it’s a sure bet  you’re going to love today’s podcast!

Boundaries are the building blocks of healthy relationships and setting them is a powerful act of self-love… yet so many of us struggle in this area — and maybe even avoid thinking about them altogether. That’s why I was so excited to interview today’s podcast guest, self love guru and boundary expert Terri Cole.

Terri Cole is a New York-based licensed psychotherapist, relationship expert and founder of The Real Love Revolution and Boundary Bootcamp. For two decades, Terri has worked with some of the world’s most well-known personalities — from international pop stars, athletes, TV personalities to thought-leaders and Fortune 500 CEOs. Her strategies combine practical psychology, eastern mindfulness practices plus harnessing the power of intention to create positive, sustainable change and lasting transformation.

So if you want to dial up your self love, assert some healthy boundaries in your life and reclaim your energy and personal power, you are going to LOVE this wide-ranging conversation.

      Episode 81 with Terri spoke to me on so many levels. Everything she spoke about reformed the emotional journey I have been on over the last year. I can’t stop smiling for this information has reinforced my feeling of self love and growth. It has also highlighted for me areas where I can keep developing. AMAZING thank you and Arohanui xx

      This was such an inspiring interview, Melissa! I can really relate to the “auto yes” habit. Saying no can be tough but I’ve noticed I feel much happier and less resentful since I’ve started putting boundaries in place. Thanks to you and Terry for all you do!

        It’s so great becoming mindful of the ‘auto yes’ it’s changed my life. Now before I do the respond I stop, tune in and then respond. It’s so much nicer that way. xx
