In 2015, I had the pleasure of taking part in a podcast that looked at how inner child therapy can help with codependency. The podcast was recieved favourably by many people and now I am offering you the chance to hear it again:

Below is the introduction to the podcast
This session includes a discussion with distinguished guest, Dr. Nicholas Jenner, a counseling psychologist who offers online therapy on a global basis. Dr. Jenner has an impressive resume, but more importantly a sincere passion for helping people get free from the restraints of negative thinking, including codependency. I found it very easy to talk to him.
It was insightful learning not just about how the Inner Child can get stuck, but that we can actually use our Inner Parent to go back and address things that were never addressed the way we needed them to be. Furthermore, the concept of the Inner Critic resonated strongly with me as I’ve battled my Inner Critic in a big way throughout my adult life. I’ve also taken note of the intergenerational nature of codependency, meaning that codependents often had a parent that was codependent. Perhaps the family of origin is something we’ll want to explore further in the future.
