Today’s interview features Svava Brooks. Having suffered sexual abuse, Svava’s early response to childhood sexual abuse was to become “Little Miss Perfect,” feeling responsible for everything happening in her environment, and attempting to hide any evidence that something could be wrong. She struggled as a young person to make sense of becoming a grown up while feeling so much self-loathing and shame. About 10 years into her healing journey, she realized that if someone had given her the words and language to speak up and ask for help, she probably would not have suffered into her adulthood. Now Svava is Abuse Survivor Coach, a Certified TRE® Provider, blogger & Author of best seller Journey to the Heart, 365-Day Guide to Thriving after Trauma. She is passionate about helping responsible adults learn how to talk about child sexual abuse in a direct and empowering way that creates awareness and confidence for adults that there is something they can do to keep kids safe.
