'The better you know yourself, the better your relationship with the rest of the world' 

- Toni Collette

The first and most important relationship is the one with ourselves. Our past experiences have shaped the person we are now. But that doesn't mean that defines us, and it doesn't mean we can't ditch those habits or negative beliefs that really don't work anymore.

By having a deeper understanding of ourselves, we are more able to create much better relationships with others in our world, whether personal, romantic, or professional.

My guests come from varied backgrounds and share their stories and experiences. Maybe similar to yours, or giving you a different perspective. 

So why not sit down, grab a cuppa and choose one of the episodes to listen to.

Nisanka Wickramarachchi helps parents who co-parent with narcissistic partners or exes to support their children consistently whilst preserving their sanity. 



Nisanka starts by telling us her story of growing up in Sri Lanka in a family where despite her parents providing a roof over her head, food, and all the practical things, she lacked love and support. Continually told that she was ungrateful when she tried to speak up.

She found it hard to understand that others outside of her immediate family were treated more kindly than she was.

This set up the ‘familiar’ pattern of believing that emotional abuse and narcissistic behaviour were normal. She found the courage to leave her partner with her daughter and a new life helping parents to co-parent with narcissistic partners.


Back in 2017, I had two choices to make. I either stay alive and see my daughter grow up, or I choose to act on the suicidal thoughts. Many days were spent in a haze, unable to make that choice, until one day, I found myself hugging my daughter ‘goodbye’. Something in me screamed at me to go get help, which is what I did.

It was during that journey that I realised how much narcissistic abuse I had endured in my life.  I was born into a narcissistic family system. My culture glorified narcissistic behaviours. I kept attracting narcissistic people into my life in close dynamics such as friends, bosses, and romantic partners. 

At one point, I felt like the damage was unfathomable. However, over time, with consistent actions to heal, my grief, disappointment, trauma, and negative core beliefs turned into creativity, empathy, courage and positive beliefs paving the way to a vibrant life. 

Nisanka is a Life Coach and a Holistic Practitioner. She is also trained with the Counselling Academy to work with Narcissism. She is an advanced EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner. She is trained in NLP and DISC Personality Facilitation. 







Wendy is a Psychotherapist, Coach, Public Speaker, and Author. She helps people who are stuck either in their personal, professional or relationships, get to the root of the problem which is holding them back, let go - and move forward into a happier more successful life.
