54. From Burnout to Balance: Navigating High-Functioning Codependency with Terri Cole

Terri Cole is back for her third appearance on the podcast. Terri is a licensed psychotherapist, global empowerment and relationship expert with a gift for making complex psychological concepts accessible and actionable. In this episode, we explore the toxic patterns and cycles women experience that keep us stressed and burned out. Whether it’s in relation to our career, external relationships or the relationship with ourselves, Terri gives us some helpful questions to ask ourselves to identify where we need to make a change. 

Terri shares her definition of high functioning codependency and how it can show up in our lives, how to set healthy boundaries by learning to give up our need for control, how to support others without taking on the burden of their problems. She gives her therapeutic insight on the most productive thing you can ask yourself if you’re going through divorce, and why people cheat on their partners. We also explore the concept of false vs true self, how to connect with your inner child and heal wounds from childhood that could impact us later in life. Plus, Terri Cole has a free gift for listeners of The Big Silence podcast. Access the codependency & boundaries lesson and prompts here:boundaryboss.me/bigsilence.
