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, all! If you spent some time off from work and/or with loved ones over the "holiday", I hope you have really enjoyed yourself. I'm incredibly grateful for you all. In this episode, I tackle the following awesome listener questions:

  • I have a much lower sexual drive than my spouse and she thinks I don't find her attractive because of it. What can I do?
  • Every time I'm in a relationship, my mental health crumbles. Why?

As always, you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and find the show notes to this episode at http://duffthepsych.com/episode280

Hello, all! Apologies in advance for my croaky voice. My voice is totally shot from the week, but I do my best to give you responses to the following awesome questions:

  • I have brought about my own problems and don't feel that I deserve to get better. How do I approach this seemingly insurmountable problem?
  • My partner and I are on a break to work on ourselves after suffering a number of losses and a terrible year overall. How can I make this work?

Hello, friends! After a quick update about the whole Thanksgiving situation at my kid's school, I dive into the following amazing questions:

  • My previous therapist was sexually inappropriate. How can I trust therapists again?

Hello, friends! In this episode, I start with some concerns from my personal life that tie into some social psychology concepts before jumping into the following questions:

  • Co-parenting with my ex is difficult given our difference in opinion about discipline. How do I stop our interactions from driving me crazy?
  • My partner retreats and can't feel anything when he is in a depressive state. What can I do to make him know that I'm here for him?
