On this episode of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie Winberg and Steve Peck speak with the author of Guy Free, Working on Me, Shauna Hoffman.
Guy Free Working On Me is not meant to be a permanent lifestyle. It is meant to be a time in your life where you stop basing your worth, your happiness, and your self esteem on having a man at your side. This is going to be an all out re-deciding of who you are, who you want to be and what you feel inside.
In the program we discuss:
- The Key points for a good relationship
- Why we sometime seek out our opposite for a partner

She is an internationally renowned licensed family therapist, educator, and mediator whose work has inspired and supported two generations of parents.

In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, we explore what Freud called “the unconscious” – the collection of repressed thoughts, wishes, fantasies and drives, many of which have an aggressive quality. What is the relevance? Inside these unconscious conflicts lies the answer to why we are attracted to and or seem to attract a certain kind of person.
The show is called Conscious Dating and our guest is Elizabeth J. Tupling, MS, TLLP is a psychotherapist specializing in individual, and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
For the person who is wondering why they are always drawn to the “bad boy” or “bad girl”, the addict, the emotionally and or legally unavailable person, it’s important to “open up the hood and look underneath”. What we’ll usually find is a long standing, established pattern of being attracted to the same kind of person, and not knowing why. Like a moth to a flame, we drift toward exactly what we consciously know is not healthy for us – it’s a real primitive, primal process that originates in early “imprinting” in the brain. This imprinting creates an unconscious definition of how relationships should feel for us – good or bad.
The challenge for the listener is to examine what feels “good” in the early stages of an attraction. And if the person is doing a truthful inventory of these feelings they might find that subtle cues of rejection, the need to chase, dismissal of one’s needs, justification of disrespectful behaviors, all feel vaguely familiar, comfortable and worse off, comforting. Doesn’t make sense does it? It usually doesn’t, it’s unconscious.
Joining us on the show is the author of the award winning book Seeing With The Heart. William Lacey is a social commentator and we discuss the development of “spiritual sight”. His book also speaks about the opportunities for the personal growth and transformation during difficult times of trial and change. William provides a man’s perspective (with Steve’s help) to the most pressing questions that women wonder about men including relationships, faith and social issues. Don’t worry ladies, Joanie shared the woman’s point of view as well.
Some of the questions women have about men:
1) What are the things that turn a man off when he is just getting to know a woman on the first couple of dates?
2) How can a woman be sure there won’t be affairs in a relationship?
3) Why do men feel they need to fix everything when I simply want to be heard?
4) Why won’t men stop and ask for directions?
