    Episode 826: Chasing Normal with Beck Thompson

    Episode 826: Chasing Normal with Beck Thompson

    Despite her early life being dominated by childhood trauma and parental neglect, you will not hear Beck use the terms ‘survivor’ or ‘thriver’. Trauma would not be the hero nor the legacy of her life. Beck has made it her mission to change the way her childhood trauma  tainted her view of the world.

    Her approach to trauma recovery is determined and unabashedly honest, getting real with the girl within to repair and renew her sense of worth and value. Beck is the author of the memoir 'Chasing Normal,' and as a primary teacher, speaker and presenter, she brings a unique perspective inspiring others with her unwavering belief in change and the human capacity for healing.

Inspirational, informative, super useful

This is a really great podcast for anyone interested in trauma therapy. I particularly like the question “what clinical mistake did you make early on?”. As an early career clinical psychologist, I’ve found the answers to be extremely helpful.

I love this podcast!

I came across this podcast after completing my counselling studies and wanting to learn more about trauma. The interviews and guests are amazing and I always come away from each episode having learned something new. I think anyone would gain something from listening to this podcast because trauma is so rarely spoken about. Thank you for producing such a great podcast!

An Essential Podcast for Beginners
