Kelly Rae. Trauma Therapist | 2.0 Member Spotlight. The Obstacle Is The Path
One of my main inspirations for beginning the podcast was to support and inspire new therapists who were interested in learning about trauma. It’s the reason I started my membership community, Trauma Therapist | 2.0.
From time to time I invite Trauma Therapist | 2.0 members onto the podcast to share their story, journey, struggles, and inspiration. Today it’s about celebrating one such member, Kelly Rae.
Kelly started studying for a Masters Degree of Counseling and Psychotherapy in 2008 after her 40th birthday. Following that , and then after leaving what she calls a tricky marriage, it seemed increasingly clear that maybe she was meant for a different path.
Hailing from Sydney, Kelly took her first counseling job at a remote Aboriginal community north of Alice Springs and stayed for three years. Upon returning she took a break and finished her degree.
In 2015 she began working for an Aboriginal organization called Link Up and accepted a position as their Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Childhood Sexual Abuse.
Currently, Kelly is working at Functional Family Therapy – Child Welfare, which she is Team Lead of four talented FFT-CW therapists.
CPTSD Foundation provides live, daily, peer-led, interactive group calls, in a safe atmosphere for survivors of complex trauma, equipping them with skills and information they can use every single day in their healing journey.

Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.
