She's Not Your Rehab

At My Fathers Barbers, Mataio (Matt) Faafetai Malietoa Brown offers men a haircut with a difference: a safe space to be seen and heard without judgement. As a survivor of family violence he shares his story with his clients as a way to foster vulnerability, healing and connection.

From his barbershop chair, Matt has inspired a new generation of New Zealand men to break free from the cycle of abuse — and those men have in turn inspired him and his wife, Sarah, to create the global anti-violence movement, She Is Not Your Rehab.

Matt and Sarah join us to talk about the power of vulnerability and honesty in addressing pain and shame, and shows the way towards taking responsibility for our own healing.
