Whitney Goodman is the radically honest psychotherapist behind the hugely popular Instagram account @sitwithwhit, the author of Toxic Positivity, and Runs her own private therapy practice in Miami. Her mission is to help people understand their emotions so they can take control of, and enjoy their life.

She joins me to discuss; how positivity becomes toxic, the role social media plays in spreading toxic positivity, how we can complain effectively, how gratitude is not a cure-all, the problems with being healing obsessed, my experience with pathologising, and how to live well by feeling the full spectrum of emotions.
