By Karen Robinson

Heal Thrive Dream 

"Discover the power of story and resilience to transform your life and heal your soul."

Charlene Madden is a women's coach and Reiki healer who has overcome a history of trauma, including childhood sexual abuse, mental illness, and domestic violence. She now uses her story to inspire others to heal holistically and to thrive in life.

Charlene Madden learned about Sex Abuse when she was three and a half years old and experienced it for nine years at the hands of her grandfather. After struggling with mental illness and suicidal thoughts, she attended a women's workshop that saved her life. She shared her story of hope and resilience which highlighted the power of story, and how generational trauma can be passed on. After an abusive relationship, her ex-partner took his life and she was left to pick up the pieces for herself, and her children. She was about to commit suicide until a friend convinced her to attend a women's workshop, where she heard a speaker talk about loving herself and her life changed.

"I looked at the impact that it had on my life and my healing with trauma and I looked at how I could gift other people with that as well. And speaking had been a part of my life passion just recently, probably the last four years, because it was a speaking event, a women's workshop that I attended that actually saved my life."
