What People are saying
So relevant and timely!

So glad you are back!!!! I loved this new episode on narcissism! It was timely, and helped me deal with a situation at work where I was able to identify my own narcissistic injury and to change my response to place the other person’s insecurity back with them and to not take on something that wasn’t mine. I initially felt terrible about myself, but was able to hold on to my sovereign self and not compromise feeling worthy by believing something someone else said to make themself feel superior. It was a situation where neither of us needed to feel diminished.

I’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast as I am LPC here in Texas. Most of the podcasts on here are quite interesting and informative. Occasionally, the hosts talk a bit too much. I’d like to have them dive into their format sooner. They have great content!

I love this podcast. I am a therapist and actually heard about it from one of my clients! I often talk about neuroscience in my sessions and emphasize attachment and trace the implications of the attachment in my therapy. (Bowlby and Ainsworth have been my teachers). Thank you for this and your knowledge , your knowledgeable guests, your ease with each other and your engaging instruction. It is very much appreciated.
Great for students

I'm in my third/final year of getting my master's in clinical mental health counseling and I have been listening to this pod from the beginning (sorry it took me so long to write a review, guys!). The attachment content is so interesting to me, both as a grad student, and a very anxious preoccupied person. I'm constantly learning new ways to think about these things, and I hope to use them with my future clients. Also, Anne and Sue just have the most calming voices in the podcast world in my opinion 🙂
I love this pod

But when comes the next episode?
Thank you for your podcast!

I’ve learned so much In such an enjoyable way. I've been bringing my understanding into my life and my work as a doctor. A request please : Could you do an episode on being in relationship with someone on the autism spectrum and discuss the difference between Asperger Syndrome and narcissism in relation to empathy? Best wishes and thanks Kate,(Australia)

This has all the makings of a very useful and accessible resource. However promising, this show needs structure. Guests seem distracted by the format and tend to focus more on sounding entertaining and eloquent than delivering practical information. The hosts don’t get things “back on the rails” as they aren’t disciplined or assertive enough to ask direct or challenging questions. I keep hoping to come away with a couple salient points from respectable professionals, but I keep coming away with a blank notepad. Please figure out a few key points; make an outline, stick to it, and wrap it up with a summary.
Therapy on the road
August 25, 2019 7:53 am by Smorgas from United States
This podcast is wonderful! As a traveling scientist, this has become an invaluable resource for me on the road, when I can go weeks to months at a time between in-person sessions with my therapist. (Not limited to that scenario, either!) The topics - even those that are seemingly irrelevant to my life (e.g., I am not a parent) - are always pertinent to concepts I am examining, and I always learn something(s). The hosts, Sue and Ann, are delightfully articulate - excellent interviewers and conversationalists, and they are clever and warm and witty, with a tomb of knowledge between them. With this podcast, I know myself and others better, I understand the therapeutic process better, and it equips me with heaps of fodder to bring to my own therapist to enrich our experience together. Thank you!

I absolutely LOVE this podcast! I'm a senior medical student applying to psychiatry residency programs this year and I can honestly say I've learned so much from Sue and Ann that I never would have learned in med school. I've been listening to episodes while driving to and from hospitals for over a year now and am never disappointed. You cover fascinating topics and have truly made some of the more difficult concepts so much more accessible and easy to understand. I am so grateful that you continue to produce content and will defnitely be a forever subscriber! Thank you both!!

Most of the podcast isn’t playing for me?
My new favorite podcast!
August 12, 2019 6:49 pm by kamchi2000 from United States
Love the hosts... helpful info for people of all levels who are seeking to get emotionally, relationally, mentally empowered... super grateful to Ann and Sue and all who make this podcast happen. My dreams of picking the brains of therapists minds and how they work is getting satiated! 🙂 Thank you!
A staple podcast
August 11, 2019 3:19 am by 10the20 from United Kingdom
As both a psychotherapist and a client I find this to be one of my most favourite and insightful podcasts, particularly around their content on attachment. The conversations are so rich in information and laced in scientific research, not airy-fairy assumptions. Unlike some psychology podcasts I’ve listened to, they’re generous. They don’t hold back on what they give to listeners, you won’t get a half hearted interview or topics and then get pushed into buying something to get information that’s actually practical or helpful. This generosity doesn’t go unnoticed!
August 2, 2019 11:45 am by Rach_CO from United States
I very much appreciate how easy the complex concepts are to understand! This podcast is invaluable information for us all!
Informative and insightful podcast

Love this podcast. So insightful and enjoyable
July 10, 2019 9:40 am by Podder101 from United States
Have you had the experience of hearing or reading something that feels like it’s perfectly describing you? Well that’s pretty much what happens every time I listen to this wonderful podcast. It’s not only validating, but practical in that it both helps you better understand yourself from a compassionate standpoint and gives you ways to work on the parts of yourself that you want to heal. As both a therapist and human I find this podcast to be so helpful...and the science stuff is pretty cool too. Thank you Ann and Sue!

I just started and already love this podcast!
June 23, 2019 4:42 am by Mole films from United Kingdom
What an insightful source of awareness! I’m finding this so helpful. It’s amazing how easily you can connect the dots, and how understanding of self can become a wonderful way of understanding others. Especially, as the ‘why’ is very often the biggest source of conflict in relationships! Keep going ladies, you’re really helping people to change perspectives and improve lives x

I’m a grad student/therapist-in-training with a deep interest in attachment theory; it’s like this podcast was made for me! These women are extremely personable and make learning about neuroscience informative and fun. Highly recommend to everyone working in the mental health field and anyone with an interest in learning about and improving their relationships.
Good referencing previous pods and related info.
June 3, 2019 9:39 am by bbsnooks from United States
I came in new to this podcast listening to Stan Tatkin.. just love him and Terry Real. and am now listening to Attachment TU60 - and found several references to previous pods dealing with the same topic that would have relevant information - especially helpful to the non-professional to get back up info on this Wide Topic . so i now have 4 podcasts downloaded. I also appreciate the Photo color spectrum I found on your website for episode TU31 Attachment on a Spectrum: Navigating Adult Insecurity and Security. I enjoy your conversational style with the "details" nicly included.

Thank-you for these informational podcasts! So helpful to my studies for I often think or even tell others I heard that in a podcast!
How Can Therapist Uncensored Help You?
Now, check out these episodes to learn more about each attachment style.
This episode is especially for those “talk to the hand” kind of people, or those that love them. You know, the uber-independent, rational, left-brain, excel spreadsheet person that sees others emotions as needy and weak. Co-hosts Sue Marriott LCSW, CGP and Ann Kelley PhD translate decades of research and clinical experience into easy to understand usable points to help you improve your understanding of why people appear so irrational at times.
TU60: Preoccupation in Relationships – Grow Your Security by Learning the Signs of Anxious Attachment
Improve your sense of security and communicate more effectively with those you love by understand preoccupied/anxious attachment. Learn to manage your body’s reactivity in relationships by learning about this attachment tendency and how it relates to unconscious regulation of the brain. Sue Marriott LCSW, CGP and Ann Kelley PhD discuss and make the information practical for real world use.
The elusive 4th category of adult attachment, disorganization, and how this state of mind relates to everyone, no matter your trauma history. Dropping into overwhelm and disorganization happens to everyone at times, and some more than others. When we have been exposed to serious danger, unresolved fright or major loss in such a way that it interferes with healthy coping patterns, we are left to our own to manage the world. In research terms they call this disorganized, but we’d like to describe it as squirting squid ink to confuse who we think is the predator and making a run for it.
Wrapping up this 3-part series focusing specifically on adult attachment, Ann Kelley PhD and Sue Marriott LCSW, CGP discuss disorganized attachment, how it forms, how it appears in adult life, and how you can identify when you fall in a pocket of it to organize yourself internally and externally.
