Welcome to episode 130 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast! Trauma and trauma resolution are two issues we’ve touched on before but today we spend an entire show on it. Our guest, Rachael Maddox, is an expert on both.

Rachael is a trauma resolution educator, coach and guide who helps women heal and understand sexual traumas they’ve experienced so they can move through the world with joy and success. Rachael’s coaching certification was earned from The Coaches Training Institute, and she is certified in trauma resolution through The Alchemical Alignment.

On this show, we dive into her very personal, firsthand experiences with trauma, how somatic therapy helped her heal when nothing else worked, and how that therapy ultimately led to what she does today.

You’ll Also Hear:

  • What is the definition of trauma, and what are some less obvious examples of it?
  • How do you know if trauma is holding you back?
  • What is a trauma spell and how do you undo it?
  • Why did she write her book, Secret Bad Girl?
  • What to look for in a trauma specialist.
  • How are shame and trauma connected?
  • The process to bring yourself back to the present after being triggered.
  • The 3 ways to resolve trauma and reclaim who you really are.
  • And much more!

After listening to us today you’ll have a better understanding of what trauma is, whether or not you’ve experienced it and what happens to the human mind and body when trauma occurs.

Rachael also answers questions from listeners like how to get your feelings of safety back, and she shares the two things that surprise her the most about the work she does with women. You’ll hear all of that and more on episode 130 of Your Kick-Ass Life.
