Episode 91: Bill O’Herron, LCSW – Understanding Our Brains & Why We Are Good Enough

by | May 2, 2021 | Interviews with Leaders | 0 comments

“A truth is an experience, it’s not a thought.”

-Bill O’Herron, LCSW

Bill O’Herron, LCSW is a corporate executive, practicing therapist (weekends and evenings), and writer who seeks to use his 33 years of financial sales management experience, 24 years of marriage, 15 years of counseling clients, and 8,500 hours of sitting quietly to help his clients better understand themselves and deepen their relationships. Bill teaches that all our relationships with others, especially our marriage, started in 4th grade, when our limbic-emotional body learned, absorbed, and inherited our parents’ lives and experiences.

His research shows that relationships fail for one single reason: a lack of understanding of one’s own emotions and reaction patterns created in childhood. His work with archetypes demonstrates also that relationships are not a single experience or dyad between two people but are eight unique relationships all occurring at the same time. Three key concepts he uses to accelerate client’s work are Stand in the Fire, 2nd Law of Thermodynamics at Home, and Relatus. These three provide direct access to understanding self.
