When Esther was a teenager she was voraciously curious about human behaviour.
She thought she’d become a journalist or a translator, but instead she grew up to become the world’s most famous contemporary psychotherapist.
Esther became known around the world after the release of her podcast “Where Should We Begin?” in which she counsels real-life couples who are on the brink of marital breakdown.
In her sessions she’s often exploring the tension between the need for security in a relationship, and the need for some distance and a sense of adventure, to keep the spark alive.
Esther says when you choose a partner you choose a story, and by doing so, you’re often recruited for a part you never expected to play.
