The Hardcore Self Help Podcast with Duff the Psych

This is a podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS. I am Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California, but I'm also a regular dude who legitimately wants to help out. I wrote the best selling books Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression and Hardcore Self Help: F**K Anxiety. Those are available at http://hardcoreselfhelp.com

Hello, friends. Thanks for joining me again for another question and answer episode. Wanted to let you know that I've been doing instagram stories over at http://instagram.com/duffthepsych. Check them out if you would like a little snapshot into my day to day life as a psychologist/dad/entrepreneur etc. 

Here are the questions covered in this episode:

  • I have anxiety caused by Graves disease. I'd like to get anxiety medication to help, but I'm not sure how to talk to my doctor about it. How can I bring it up?
  • My father killed himself and I want to get therapy, but I'm afraid that I'll be hospitalized. Should I bother?
  • Robert, how do you get so much done when I can hardly find a single moment to myself?

As always you can send me your anonymous questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and I'll see you next time!

Hello, friends! Thanks for tuning in. In this episode, I take 3 more awesome question from you listeners. There are a couple questions from younger people, which I think is awesome. I decided to livestream this episode on my facebook page. I will try to do more of that in the future, so keep your eyes out for Tuesday night live video on the facebook page over at http://facebook.com/duffthepsych

Here are the questions covered in this episode:

  • Could my high IQ cause mental health issues?
  • What can I do when I'm bad at hiding how I feel at school or work?
  • Should I get help as a young person with depression?

As always you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com

Hey, friends! In this episode, I do something a bit different. I guess you could say that this is a deep dive episode that was prompted by a listener question. Someone wrote in and wanted to know more about what got me into the field of psychology in the first place and what appeals to me about it. So I get a little personal and tell you about my early life, experiences, and journey through the field of psychology. I hope you enjoy!

Next week will most likely be another question and answer episode, so please continue sending me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com

Hello, friends! I just want to take a minute to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to listen and for sending in questions to help me create this content. Also wanted to give you a heads up that I will be off of social media for next week. Anyways, here are the questions covered in this episode:

  • Now that I am out of a cult, how can manage my anxiety and make sure I give my daughter opportunities to socialize?
  • Would a polyphasic sleep schedule help me get enough rest for my shift work?
  • I'm in a good place recently. What can I do to prepare for therapy between sessions?

As always you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and if you are not yet following me on social, get on that. I'm @duffthepsych on everything.
