Episode Description:

“On this Episode of Your Choices Matter, our podcast explores the impact of the decisions we make, on our lives and the lives of others. This is a publication that is designed to support people who are in recovery from substance and alcohol dependency.

In today's episode, we embark on a powerful journey alongside a remarkable woman named Jackie.

Jackie bravely shares her story of childhood trauma and its lasting impact.  She paints a vivid picture of the challenges she faced, the relationship issues she endured, and the difficult choices she made along the way. However, her narrative is not purely one of hardship.

Through resilience and determination, Jackie has embarked on a path of healing. She is now committed to breaking free from the cycle of negative experiences and sharing her story to inspire others.

This episode delves into the following:

  • The lasting effects of childhood trauma: We explore how early experiences can shape our present and how to navigate their influence.
  • Breaking free from negative cycles: Jackie's story serves as an inspiration for those seeking to overcome challenges and make positive changes in their lives.
  • The power of sharing our experiences: Jackie demonstrates the impact of vulnerability and how it can empower others on their own journeys.
  • The importance of seeking help: We highlight resources and support available through the Your Choices Matter programme, empowering listeners who require help to take the next step.
  • A powerful testimony: Providing valuable insights into the complexities of human experience, the power of choice, and the importance of seeking support.
