Episode 68 - Alison Cook

Most of us probably would agree that boundaries are an important part of any relationship. But what about our relationships with ourselves? In her years as a professional counselor, Alison Cook has discovered that boundaries aren’t just necessary between each other, but within our own souls as well. Alison sits down with Davey to discuss some of the ideas that she shares in her new book, Boundaries for Your Soul, and how these boundaries can make a huge difference when we’re going through any sort of trials.

We don’t change, we don’t grow, and we don’t heal in the context of criticism. We heal in the context of compassion.
