Welcome to Trauma Recovery

My work is centered on people with histories of abuse, chiefly child sexual abuse and narcissistic relationships. I provide support, information, and education to people with histories of abuse, and the people who support them.

I offer programmes for parents who were sexually abused as children, daughters and sons of narcissistic mothers, women who wish to reclaim their sexuality post-sexual abuse and parents of children and teens who were sexually abused as children.

Woman Up! Podcast

Woman Up! is a podcast presented by me. An A-Cast production, It’s by, for, and about women – and the issues that matter to us.

The initial episode will drop on October 1st – when my guest will be the inimitable (and very funny!) Aoife Martin. Later in October, which is Black History Month, I’ll be joined by a Jane Xavier, who is (among other things) a Black woman activist.

Clearly, I’m featuring incredible women in the first month – but I can promise you, I won’t lose my momentum. Wait until you see who is going to join me in November!
