Beyond Betrayal With Dr. Debi Silber
Featured Guest Dr. Debi Silber

Are you feeling stuck in a stress mess, overwhelmed, and overstimulated by the demands of your life? Spread too thin and not prioritizing self-care because you feel like it’s selfish when so many other people need your help? Well, let’s stop for a moment.


How much can we really help others when we’re just scraping by, ourselves? At the end of the day, we’re only really worth as much as we can give, based on the energy we have in the time that we have.


I’m your host, Dr. Heidi Hanna, and in this stress mastery podcast, we’re talking to the experts to find out what they do to use stress as fuel for success and what they do to shift stress in a positive way when they notice it getting out of control.


Because we’re all human, we all get stuck sometimes and we can learn so much from each other when we take an honest look at the patterns that are hurting us and create new patterns that will help us.


So, let’s get ready to master stress together in today’s conversation!


Key Takeaways:

[1:08] Dr. Hanna welcomes listeners and introduces this week’s guest as well as some of her work – and their connection through a mutual friend: Dr. Debi Silber, holistic psychologist and health, mindset and personal development expert. She recently earned a Ph.D. with a study on how women experience betrayal, in addition to being on FOX, CBS, The Dr. Oz Show, TEDx and more, she’s an award-winning speaker, coach, and author.

[9:04] Safety at all costs! How does the lack thereof manifest and how do we navigate out of it?

[11:20] Dr. Silber discusses Post Betrayal Syndrome and the ways our body tells us there is a need for it to heal and a need for us to learn!

[14:20] Debi talks us through the five proven and predictable stages from the initial shock to the Post Betrayal Transformation.

[18:20] Which steps are the hardest to transition from? Why?

Until next time, please remember that stressing is a blessing, once you know how to use it for good. It gives us the energy and information to fuel positive change if we’re brave enough to look into it, stay open and curious to what it has to teach us and then adjust our patterns in a way that will give us even more capacity to cope. And when we do that together, we increase the energy we have to bring to the time that we have and we’re better together. So please, be good to yourself, and I’ll see you next week.
