Tough Love...or is it?
This week we look at a letter from a listener who feels the boundaries in relationships are blurred and their feelings are being invalidadted and derided by friends and family. Is this tough love or something else?
Behind Closed Doors
This week we answer a listeners question about how growing up in their family affects their current relationships, both personally and professionally.

Jekyll or Hyde
After 22 years of marriage, a listener who says she is "tired of being treated like dirt" asks is it Autism or Narcissism? Katie & Helen discuss and explain why and how Autism is different to Narcissism and use the examples in the letter to show the difference.
This week our listener struggles to find the boundaries with her brother. When he was born she was a second mother to him, and now she's unsure of what her role is to him. Katie and Helen look at the impact of this and how to sit in her new role and as sister.
Hiding in Plain Sight
This week Katie and Helen look at a familiar story. From the outside our listener grew up with privilege - private school, horses and a nice house. But from inside, it was a facade. The listener describes the loneliness and fear in childhood, and the need to defend her brother, and father and the fight with enmeshment and and the hope for change and how the listener can protect herself.
