Fascinating look at the human psyche
10 September 2019 | by gosurrealSee all my reviews

I found this show fascinating. We start by listening the the four couples state what their conflicts are. It is easy to take sides at this point. Then, episode by episode, the therapist leads them to dive deep into what is causing the behavior and it is an amazing process. It becomes clear how past experiences/traumas are creating the self-sabotaging behavior in the present. Makes one wonder what one may be burying in oneself...?
