The SelfWork Podcast

Margaret Robinson Rutherford PhD
Health & FitnessSelf-ImprovementEducationMental Health

I'm Dr. Margaret, a psychologist for over 25 years and the author of Perfectly Hidden Depression. I created The SelfWork Podcast in 2016 to explain mental health treatment, and to give you the chance to consider therapy without thinking it's weird or somehow suggests you can't "fix" your own problems. My team is so honored that five years later, SelfWork has earned nearly 3.5 million downloads! Each episode features the popular listener question. And, once a month, you’ll hear a “You Get the Gist” segment - a five minute run-down of a current topic - as well as an interview with an outstanding guest author or expert, adding to the wide diversity of topics listeners so appreciate. Regularly rated as one of the top mental health/depression podcasts out there, I keep it short and casual - and I'd love to hear from you. Please join me.

    Both this podcast and her book have helped me better understand my own problems with perfectionism and I cannot recommend them more for anyone who struggles with mental illness. She addresses a wide variety of topics and is pleasant to listen to. Thank you Dr. Margaret for all that you do!

  • Great podcast!

    I do love listening to this podcast because it helps me feel more “normal” in my depression, anxiety, trauma etc. I’m 41 yrs old and I recognize that something is not right with me, but I bottle it up and shove it away! Thanks for sharing your experiences and help!

  • Best Mental Health Podcast Out There!

    I've been a SelfWork listener for a long time; Dr. Margaret's insight and practical suggestions have been life-changing for me. Every episode has some nugget of wisdom that I've found helpful, no matter what the topic. She manages to be both thorough and detailed (explaining research, for example) while still being totally accessible and friendly. I can't recommend her enough!
