    #33 Natalie Walker | Founder & CEO | PartnerSpeak

    Trigger warning: Online child sexual abuse, trauma


    Please welcome change maker and advocate Natalie Walker.

    When Natalie Walker was in her early twenties and not long married, it was revealed that her husband had been accessing images of child sexual abuse on his computer. When the internet was still in its pre-Google days, these horrendous crimes were so underground that they were not even fully understood by law enforcement agencies.

    Natalie Walker is the founder and CEO of PartnerSpeak, a multi faceted organisation offering peer support and advocacy for traumatised non-offending partners and families of perpetrators of on-line child sexual abuse. Natalie’s lived experience saw her marriage end and she soon discovered there was no support to help her through this traumatic time. In 2012, Natalie founded PartnerSpeak when she discovered that many non-offending partners were often blamed, shunned and punished for the crimes of their partners. This also extended to their children.

    In 2017 Natalie was announced as a recipient of the Churchill Fellowship for her work in exploring peer support as a trauma-informed response to the families of offenders. Natalie also sits on two national working groups as part of the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation.

    #31 Dr. Kristy Sumner | Paranormal Investigator | Soul Sisters Paranormal

    Do you believe in ghosts? Are you fascinated by stories of the unexplained? Then this might be the podcast for you! Kristy Sumner is a Paranormal Investigator and the co-founder of Soul Sisters Paranormal, an all female Paranormal investigation team based in the USA, who have investigated some of the most haunted sites across America. 

    In 2020, the team changed somewhat as twin sisters Jenny and Kristy became the primary investigators for the team. 

    Both Jenny and Kristy have always had a fascination with the paranormal, and small impromptu investigations occurred before the formal organization of the team. While based mostly in central Florida, the sisters have traveled across the USA in order to investigate interesting locations.  Kristy who holds an advanced PHD approaches the investigations from a research perspective. 
    Paranormal investigations and education are just parts of the services Soul Sisters provide. They are passionate about treating each investigation location with the respect and the reverence that it deserves for its place in history.

    #29 Lisa Cox | Disability Advocate | Media Consultant

    As a media and advertising professional, Lisa Cox spent years making products, brands, and messages visible. Now, after having acquired a disability, she’s using her lived experience and her existing professional skill set to make disability more visible in popular culture. Lisa is a disability advocate, a media consultant, writer, presenter and model and is changing the narrative around disability in the media and the fashion industry by disrupting stereotypes. I loved having Lisa, a kick ass women beyond forty, share her journey here in the Confessional.

Love the ep with Kim and Kayte

Excited that I now have a back catalogue to listen to!

KatiepaulDarius ,

Wow!! Hard not to be inspired & motivated

Loved the ease of the conversations, the flow. It felt better than a coaching call. There is something about women & in the interview with Nicole Brownlee she sums it up perfectly. Women are generous & kind in spirit, they want to see other women succeed. It is about connection & a genuine desire to push YOU to see your own greatness in the art of storytelling. I love how Sandy listens & allows the speaker to direct the flow because that is when the real nuggets of gold appear.
