Joan Quinlan has overcome multiple life traumas brought about by her early lifestyle.

Overcomers Overcoming

Bronwyn Schweigerdt is a psychotherapist who knows that even though feelings are invisible, they don’t evaporate. Instead, they are stored in our subconscious mind and body when they’re disowned.
