A podcast where posttraumatic growth and creativity meet


When shit really hits the fan, it can often send us out into the world seeking comfort in the words of others.

We may reach for soppy (or inspirational) jams, poems, quotes and meaningful conversations to help us make sense of what has happened to us.

That’s what this podcast is all about: What Doesn’t Kill Us is a space I’ve carved out, just for us, to learn how to navigate troubled waters in a healthier way. Creativity isn’t solely reserved for the Artists – it’s available for every one of us to use and create a life well lived.

I’ll be jumping on the mic sharing the latest research on my two favourite concepts – posttraumatic growth and creativity – as well as chats I have with people who live and breathe it all.

So if you’re looking to feel seen and turn your pain into power, make sure you subscribe and follow What Doesn’t Kill Us on your preferred streaming platform.

Listen, follow and subscribe on Apple PodcastsSpotify, or Google Podcasts. New episodes drop bi-weekly.
