Description

Content Warning: Today’s episode is all about relational trauma including sexual, physical and emotional abuse as well as birth trauma. Please know this is a heavy episode and you can take your time listening to it or come back to it at a different time. 

My guest today is vania sukola, RP who is a feminist and trauma therapist and works with clients in the perinatal period. I first met vania when she was providing training on trauma assessments. I was instantly drawn to vania’s calm and steady presence and her wisdom. Today’s episode is quite heavy and so I encourage you to take care of yourself when listening to this episode and afterwards.
