A Trauma Therapist and a Quality of Mind Coach; What’s similar- What’s different - When it comes to psychological safety?

This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind 'before psychology' that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.

This episode is a conversation with trauma therapist and coach Lou Lebentz. Lou & Piers have similar backgrounds in how they worked with clients, and now Lou specialises with clients suffering trauma. After they had a couple of interesting exchanges on LinkedIn about psychological safety, they decided to do a podcast exploring the difference and similarities.... 

The discussion covers:

  • What we mean by trauma?
  • The relevance of seeing psychological safety via the nervous system. The polyvagal theory
  • Can you point directly, or do people need to go through a 'journey' - can it be that simple?
  • The issue of 'spiritual bypassing'
  • The self and it's narratives -  what are they, and how do they dissolve? The 'real and never true' nature of reality. 
  • The importance of 'relational repair' 
  • Relationships - who is doing the relating?
  • The power of holding space
