We all carry stories that shape our lives. When those stories are deeply rooted in childhood, the scars can last forever. My guest in this episode is a woman whose mission it is to help all women rewrite those trauma-based stories and thrive.
Natasha Bray is a solo mama of one little man, a hugely successful entrepreneur and a source of relief and healing for women around the world. In this episode Natasha tells us about her early struggles with exercise addiction, bulimia, infertility and eventually a traumatic and disempowering birth experience.
Signed off her work as a social worker because of stress and depression, Natasha decided to bet on herself: she trained as a Rapid Transformation Therapy practitioner, thinking it would help her nutrition clients. What she wasn't expecting was that it would completely change her personal world.
Natasha explains how RTT shifted her inner dialogue about her worth and lovability (in all good ways) and why she's now so passionate about doing the same for other women. I've tasted the magic of RTT and can attest that this modality WORKS.

You might also like to listen to my earlier episode with Glyniss Trinder, another RTT practitioner, who talked about her great escape from stress and family constructs.
During this conversation I mentioned a few other podcast episodes you might want to check out:
EP036 with Claire Farringdon, recorded the day before her second (planned) c-section, about her birth experience and healing.
EP056 with Rebecca Ching, psychotherapist and trauma expert, in which we talk about the ways small "t" traumas can impact our lives
Natasha mentions the book Five Love Languages and the accompanying volume The Five Love Languages of Children. Click here to find out more about both of those. She also mentions The Five Minute Journal, which you might want to have a look at.
Finally, I mentioned the Black Dog cartoon about depression. It's a great illustration of what people live with who struggle with depression.
