68: Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence

In today’s episode we are joined by Dr. Debra Campbell. Dr. Campbell is a psychologist and author and has worked in private practice consulting on everything from panic to depression and parenting problems. For a number of years she worked as a couple therapist and university lecturer in marriage and relationships.

Prior to psychology, Dr. Campbell taught yoga and meditation, so mindfulness has always been a cornerstone of her work in mental health and couple relationship rehab. She was the Director of Hobsons Bay Yoga and Natural Health and Newport Yoga Centre for over a decade. Dr. Campbell’s psychological research on couple relationship satisfaction, emotional intelligence and spirituality in mental health has been published in psychological journals in Australia and the USA.

In today’s episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to be mindful and practice emotional intelligence in a relationship.
  • Tools to be present with your partner.
  • The importance of emotional intelligence for personal and relationship growth.
  • Tips and resources for meditation.
  • And much more!
