EMILY LABOWE – How to heal your trauma
You are more than the thoughts that hold you down.
In this week’s episode, I talk with Emily Labowe about her healing journey and her entrepreneurial endeavors.
After being a passenger in a bad car accident a few weeks before her 19th birthday, Emily had to learn how to live with the trauma of the accident and the aftermath.
Now, Emily has a great awareness of and gratitude for her life and is strengthened by her experiences.
Together, we discuss:
• The benefits of narrative therapy to confront trauma
• Learning to reconcile your self-perception with your trauma
• How to empower yourself with your vulnerability
• Self-worth and imposter syndrome as a creative
• The importance of stories, both telling our own and listening to others’
Emily is an actor, model, and entrepreneur who has worked with: Citizen Of humanity, Laura Mercier, The Kooples, Sezane, Free People, Everlane and the list is long:).
She’s recently set up a new company, Poppy Undies – comfortable underwear that doesn’t sacrifice sexiness! Part of setting up Poppy Undies was a purposeful move to ensure that her self-worth extended beyond her roles as an actor and model. If you want to learn more about Emily’s new company, click here.
