While Dr Heather Abernethy’s main day job as an anesthesiologist is to numb people’s pain, her own journey with PTSD after an unhealthy relationship forced her to confront her own, at a time she too wished she could be out cold, numb, asleep… Through her own healing journey she is now passionate about discussing and destigmatising trauma and shame, as well as equipping her clients with the tools to release their stored trauma and feel safe in their bodies.
In this episode we do a deep dive into trauma and shame - what is it? How can we recognise it? Is it stored in our bodies? How do we heal it? What do we do to try and ignore its existence? How can we help someone we know who is struggling?
