Beyond The Stethoscope

Oct 19, 2020

Favorite quotes of the episode: “Two people in a relationship with different attachment styles is like playing a board game with two different sets of rules.”

“This isn’t a diagnosis, it’s a subconscious set of rules we have for relating.”

“Our attachment style can always change, it’s reprogrammable through new neural pathways.”

“The subconscious is programmed through repetition plus emotion.”

Episode Overview

In this episode, I talk with Thais Gibson. Thais is an author, speaker, and co-creator of the Personal Development School. She is extremely passionate about personal growth, the subconscious mind, and connecting with others. With an MA and over 13 different certifications ranging from CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to hypnosis, Thais strives to continuously learn and grow.

She is best known for her contributing work and research on Attachment Theory and the impact of attachment trauma on our adult romantic relationships. She overlaps attachment trauma challenges with personal core wounds, limiting beliefs and emotional patterns at the subconscious level to give us deeper insight into ourselves and our relationships.

Her book, The Attachment Theory Guide, was written on this topic and her Youtube channel often focuses on educating people on how to subconsciously reprogram this area of their lives.

After overcoming her own challenges with addiction in her early years, Thais is profoundly determined to educate people on how they can reprogram painful or limiting programs in their own mind. She is focused on helping people retrain their brain to achieve relationship fulfillment, abundance, and personal freedom in their lives.


  • The difference between a limiting belief and a limiting program.
  • The four attachment styles.
  • How our early childhood experiences with attachment affect our subconscious minds.
  • How we can retrain our mind to transform any limiting program in each of the seven areas of life.
  • How busy professionals can use this knowledge to get closer to that ever-elusive work-life balance.

5 Questions Segment

Q1. We know that the most successful and happy people have a morning routine, what do you do each morning or evening that sets your day up for success? I meditate every morning for 20 minutes. Then I spend 5-10 minutes journaling and setting my intentions for the day. In the evening I spend another hour before bed, twenty minutes meditating, and 40 minutes journaling with anything that I want to focus on and fine-tune.

Q2. What's your definition of Success? My definition of success is happiness!  What brings you joy in your life. What do you want to create in the seven areas of your life? Then when you are taking action and you feel fulfilled then you know you are in success because your emotions are giving you that feedback.

Q3. What's your definition of Happiness? My definition of happiness or fulfillment is when we are really clear about what our personal needs are and they are being met, our cups are full.

Q4. What do you know now that you wish you would have known 10 years ago? I wish I would have known a little bit earlier to be more compassionate and gentle towards myself.

Q5. What do you think is the biggest issue facing busy professionals today? You can be so focused on the mindset of achievement and getting ahead that you can lose a little bit of the relationship to yourself. If we don’t take time to care for ourselves then eventually we are forced to take time away from our career to give time to your physical health that has been neglected, or to your relationships that are falling apart. Balance across all seven areas of life is key to having long term success.
