The voyeuristic self-improvement themed reality show features people being counseled by lively self-help guru Iyanla Vanzant. Once a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the series features Vanzant serving as a life coach using her expertise as a former public defender and as a spiritual psychology expert (which integrates spirituality into the framework of modern psychology) to help guests fix what isn't right in their lives. It consistently offers positive messages about the importance of achieving spiritual, mental, and emotional well-being. However, like most unscripted series of this type, lots of superficial solutions are offered to address complex problems, and some theatrically emotional moments are created to make good TV moments. Nonetheless, if you like self-help TV you may find that Iyanla, Fix My Life has something to offer.
