by neeta bhushan


Hey Brave Table Fam! It’s Dr. Neeta Bhushan here, and in this episode, we’re going deep with the fabulous Lalitaa Suglani, award-winning psychologist, renowned leadership empowerment expert, international speaker and author. Today she’s sharing her latest book “High Functioning Anxiety.” 

Lalitaa, with her therapist hat on, reminds us that embracing our full selves, even the shadowy bits, is key. We’re chatting about the power of authenticity and emotional regulation (no more running from those feelings, folks!) and shedding light on attachment styles and the transformative magic of healing those early wounds. It’s all about trusting in our own enough-ness, tuning into our sensitivity, and not chasing that elusive external ‘atta girl’. So pull up a chair for a heart-to-heart and discover how you can lean into those uncomfortable moments, and keep that inner spark shining bright!
