A Sandwich Parent who saved herself from a complete loss of cognitive functions to being Australia’s first Certified Trauma Recovery Coach, Linda Meredith truly knows what suffering from CPTSD is like. Based out of Brisbane, Linda makes her trauma recovery expertise available globally through her YouTube channel, Healing CPTSD website, and Facebook community. She wants you to believe in yourself and have hope. She did it and she wants you to know you can too. I had the immense honour of interviewing Linda and here is our conversation. (Side note: Bill forgot he was editing as he got caught up listening to her thoughtful, passionate, and wise advice.)

Listen to our podcast as we talk about interesting parenting topics such as obedience, past trauma, achievement, and consent-based living.
