Ep 59: We All Carry Trauma

When you hear the word ‘trauma’ what do you think?

Whether you’re aware of it or not, trauma affects every person, every day. It can show up in yourself or through the people closest to you. And inevitably it can affect your relationships, career and personal wellbeing. So how do you work through life trauma? In this heartfelt episode, Meg speaks with Dr Sarah Woodhouse, a research psychologist and trauma expert, about how to regulate trauma. Learn what trauma is, how to recognise trauma and dysregulation in yourself and others, how to regulate your nervous system, and ultimately how to reduce the pressure to enjoy your life to the fullest. 

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ What is trauma

▫️ The importance of knowing our triggers

▫️ How to regulate our nervous system

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“If you’re dysregulated, you’re going to go into fight or flight very, very quickly.”

Dr Sarah Woodhouse

“Children are not listening to our words, they are feeling our energy.”

Dr Sarah Woodhouse

“Learning to regulate our nervous system can solve pretty much anything.”
