This is our most personal episode so far…
We get raw, we get open…we get vulnerable.
Know that you’re not alone. This episode is for you.
Brene Brown’s research has shown that vulnerability is the glue that holds relationships together.
But we completely understand that being vulnerable is hard, REALLY hard.
We’ve had a long journey to being vulnerable too and we still need to remind ourselves to practice vulnerability, to allow our walls to come down and our hearts to open.
We don’t always get it right.
Being vulnerable opens you up to pain, but it also opens you up to greater joy, to greater love and more meaningful relationships.
We quite simply can’t have intimacy without vulnerability.
So how do you tear down your walls and let more love in?
Join us for this intimate conversation as we share:
Connection is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.
You are worthy of love and belonging.
We hope this episode helps break down those walls you may have built up.
We hope it helps you remember to always be kind to yourself, embrace your imperfections and embrace them in others.
Be authentically you… it leads to deeper connections.
And practice vulnerability - the irony is that is actually feels good when we’re vulnerable.
The more you practice anything, the better you get. Pretty soon, you’ll be a boss of vulnerability and master of your whole-hearted life!
With deep love and gratitude,
Isiah + Bec.xx

We’d love to hear from you:
How do you feel about vulnerability?
Was there a moment in your life that led you to put your walls up?
I remember the first time I kissed a woman.
It’s actually not the kiss that I remember most - it’s how I felt afterwards.
Because, to borrow from Katie Perry: I kissed a girl. And I liked it.
I liked it a lot, you guys.
But I had always - and still do - consider myself heterosexual.
So how does that work?
We recently received a question from a woman who shared similar feelings about her sexual fantasies involving other women. She’s always considered herself heterosexual and only been in relationships with men, but she’s now wondering what these fantasies about women mean.
So in this episode of Wholehearted: Love Sex + Intimacy – The Podcast, we wanted to address her concerns, which are really common.
If you’ve also found yourself sexually attracted to the same sex, maybe watching lesbian porn and wondered ‘what does this mean???’ We’re answering it all;
We’ll talk about:
I open up about my own experiences of being with women - and what it means for my own relationships.
Enjoy this episode, knowing you are DEFINITELY NOT ALONE!
It’s becoming a bit of a theme on the podcast, but our take home message is that we believe:
We think this quote from Kesha sums it up perfectly:
“I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”

Am I in a Sex Rut and how do I get out of it?
Can you relate to the story of so many couples that have walked through my door?
Sex started out fun and exciting (and on a regular basis), but then life happened…
You got busy, tired and very familiar with each other. And you’ve now found yourself feeling a little lack-lustre in the bedroom.
Perhaps, like many of the couples I work with, you’ve noticed:
You, my friend, may be experiencing what we call a ‘sex rut’.
It’s common and you’re normal.
Sex ruts can even happen for happy couples and couples who once considered themselves pretty ‘adventurous’ in this area.
In this episode of Wholehearted: Love Sex + Intimacy – The Podcast, we’re talking about signs you’re in a sex rut - but most importantly, how you can get out.
Helping couples rediscover fun, playfulness and lasting desire in the bedroom is something Isiah does every day (with incredible results!).
We’ll be sharing 10 ways to get out of a Sex Rut and rediscover playful, loving, satisfying sex. Yes, it’s possible!

Is there anyone who hasn’t argued with their spouse about chores? I need to know your secret!
It’s one of the top issues couples argue about and it comes up all the time in therapy.
This week on Wholehearted: Love, Sex + Intimacy, I answer a question from a woman who says her partner STILL expects so much of her around the house, even though she earns more money.
I shared some helpful statistics with her that every relationship can benefit from.
I also answer questions from:
We all have questions about relationships and intimacy. We’ve all felt stuck and we all benefit from support sometimes.
