People, Places & Things star Denise Gough: I can talk about my abuse and addiction now

She started reading about trauma, particularly the works of Gabor Maté, and realised she had internalised a lot of self-blame. Therapy helped, as did talking about the abuse to her shocked family; her father was an electrician, her mother a marriage counsellor, and she has 10 siblings including a heart surgeon, a doctor and the actress Kelly Gough. She can talk about the abuse and addiction publicly now, she says, because she’s speaking from “the wisdom, not the wound”.
