In the final episode for Season 3 I catch up with therapist  Ben Schiller.  
It was a jam packed episode that covered a lot of ground.  We chat about... 
- drinking dreams, why we have them and how to use them to your advantage. 
- why we de-prioritise our self work and ourselves. 
- sitting with your feelings,  how to do it and why it works.
- Should you have a big blow out before starting a sober challenge or embarking on a sober journey?
-  reparenting your inner child. 
- Mapping out your thoughts and triggers. 
- Thriving in sobriety,  how it's absolutely possible. 
-  navigating and leaning into the grieving process. 
- The importance of becoming aware of the eight basic emotions. 
- The one on  one session I had  with Dr Gabor Mate and what he taught me. 
- Being with what is. 
- Learning how to soothe your emotions. 
- Exploring your identity. 
- Enjoying all the different parts of your personality. 
- What's next for you in your sobriety journey.
