The Adversity Psychologist

Podcast Show Notes

Series 7 Episode 5

Guest: Dr Yvonne Waft

In this episode I talk to Clinical Psychologist, Dr Yvonne Waft, about Trauma.

In her work Yvonne aims to challenge the notion that "Trauma" is untreatable and a lifelong condition. Highly effective treatments are available and no matter how severe the trauma you have been through, life can get better, and you may even thrive again.

We cover:

·      Yvonne’s journey into psychology through my own experiences of trauma

·      Focusing on trauma as a field of clinical expertise.

·      How Yvonne’s lived experience informs her work as a psychologist.

·      Preconceptions about treating trauma.

·      Going from surviving to thriving.

·      The importance of self-compassion.
