Thriving Adoptees - Let's Heal

Simon Benn

We are all at different place on our healing journey. Thriving Adoptees helps you along your unique journey with insights from your fellow adoptees. So that their learnings catalyse your healing. So why do I love helping adoptees heal? I was adopted at 5 weeks old and told about it so young I don't ever remember not knowing. I didn't experience any conscious adoption trauma until I hit 40 when I found out my childhood teddy bear was a gift from my birth mother. This caused an eruption of anger, feeling rejected and unloved. That kickstarted a learning journey that led me to heal and then want to help others. I created the podcast so guests help listeners along their unique healing journey and see their worth. That's the reason the Thriving Adoptees logo is a diamond. You are a diamond. We are all diamonds. Diamonds whose worth is hidden by our trauma. But every metaphor has it's limits. Diamonds have a finite value. Your value is infinite. Most podcasts for adoptees focus on stories, we focus on healing. Email me at simon@thrivingadoptees.com if you'd like to have a chat about being a guest on the show. There have been 83,000 downloads of the show since launch in April 2021.
