Today on the A Pinch of Magick podcast I’m joined by Nienke Thurlings, a trauma-informed women’s coach and social psychologist.

In this episode of the A Pinch of Magick podcast, I’m joined by Nienke Thurlings, a trauma-informed women’s coach and social psychologist from The Netherlands. Get ready for a deep dive into the realms of women’s experiences, history, and empowerment that promises to enlighten and inspire (but first it might piss you off).

Nienke takes us on a journey exploring how intergenerational patterns of trauma influence women’s self-expression today, suggesting that events like the witch hunts still cast long shadows over our collective consciousness.

Ever wonder why, at times, you feel silenced or unable to speak your truth? We’ll delve into the societal expectations placed on women, the often unacknowledged emotional labour they carry, and the subtle dangers lurking behind being ‘too nice.’

We’re going deeper, uncovering the pain of self-betrayal and examining the ‘tend and befriend’ survival mechanism. It’s an eye-opening discussion on distinguishing between true intuition and trained responses, the deep-seated ‘need to belong,’ and the painful reality of the ‘sister wound.’

Nienke doesn’t shy away from the historical context, shedding light on how women have been systematically disempowered over the centuries. Yet, in the midst of this, she introduces pleasure as a radical act of rebellion, leading to an enlightening conversation on the female orgasm and the suprising origins of vibrators.

This episode is a call to reclaim our power, to embrace our truths, and to discover liberation in pleasure. So, whether you’re seeking to understand the deeper layers of female experience or ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, this conversation with Nienke Thurlings is an absolute must-listen.

It’s time to uncover the magick within our stories, our struggles, and our strength.
