Episode 17 of The F Words: Difficult conversations with Dr Leandra Brady-Walker is #Feelings: Working through your s**t: Growing up with domestic violence with Katherine Maslen.

Katherine is like me. She's a naturopath and is into food and natural health, our daughter are the same age, we're both authors and speakers, but there's one glaring difference between us. Katherine grew up with an abusive father. Growing up in a home with domestic violence, Katherine has seen first hand how difficult it can be for someone to leave an abusive relationship so she decided to help by a. telling her story and b. signing up for Dancing with the CEO's.

We have a really good conversation about what it was like growing up with domestic violence and the work Katherine has done to get where she is today. Take a listen.
