This week, I speak with Lou Lebentz, trauma specialist, mental health campaigner, author, speaker, and therapist.

With over 25 years of working in the mental health arena and a deeply personal understanding of the impact of trauma, Lou has developed The Voyage Academy, a theoretical model used for helping others navigate their healing journeys. Her approach is trauma-informed, emphasizing the importance of compassion, understanding, and resilience. Her work is a testament to the transformative power of recovery and the possibility of finding hope and healing.

We discuss:

  • From the rag trade to The Priory
  • Recovering from psychosis
  • Integrating and befriending the body
  • Alignment and community support
  • The journey from trauma to resilience
