Healing From Betrayal with Debi Silber

Aug 24, 2022

Most of us have probably experienced betrayal in some form or another during the course of our lives. Unlike the trauma of the death of a loved one or a natural disaster, betrayal feels extremely personal, which is why the healing process differs. Unfortunately, many people get stuck in the early stages of dealing with betrayal which often has a detrimental impact on their mental and physical health for many years, sometimes even a lifetime.

In today’s episode, I am joined by Dr. Debi Silber, founder of the Post Betrayal Transformation (PBT) Institute, whose own experiences of betrayal led her to discover 3 fundamental truths about betrayal and subsequently develop a 5 stage healing process that helps people who are struggling with post-betrayal syndrome radically alter their lives for the better.

Debi is a holistic psychologist, health mindset and personal development expert, and the author of 3 books that explore different elements of betrayal. Whether you have recently been through a betrayal, or have been stuck in an unhealthy pattern of betrayal-related trauma for many years, this episode will show you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and as long as you have the will to heal, you will get there!
