Wow, this episode is spine chilling and eye opening! On today’s show I'm speaking with a global expert on narcissism (a topic I have been fascinated by and longing to dive in deeper).
My special guest is Dr Ramani - best selling author, clinical psychologist, professor of psychology and media expert.
Dr Ramani breaks down narcissism in a way you can easily understand and if you're like me, this episode made me have so many aha moments! Dr Ramani explains behaviour that often feels unexplainable and we unpack gas lighting and love bombing. We are confronting a topic that is one of the highest forms of manipulation in my opinion and I’m sure everyone has been exposed to it in some way or another.
Dr Ramani books are fantastic and I also encourage you to check out her new YouTube channel!
