Publisher's Summary

Mataio (Matt) Faafetai Malietoa Brown offers the men in his barbershop a haircut with a difference: a safe space to be seen and heard without judgement.

As the creator of My Fathers Barbers, 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 Matt and his wife, Sarah, to create the global anti-violence movement She Is Not Your Rehab.

In this book, Matt shares his own story and those of his clients: how they survived family violence and abuse, and how they were able to find healing and turn their lives around. He introduces the people and concepts that have helped him heal and gives listeners the tools they need to begin their own journeys.

She is Not Your Rehab demonstrates the power of vulnerability and honesty in addressing pain and shame, and shows how anyone can empower themselves by taking responsibility for their own healing.

Please read this book...

This is a powerful book that everyone, not just men need to read as we traverse the many things our childhood's bring us and the healing that can come if we are willing to do the mahi. Inspiring, moving and ultimately calls me to walk towards my own healing. Thank you

Thank you 🙏

Thank you soo much for soo gently but impact fully sharing your story, your words have imprinted on me deeper than any korero I have sat or read through 💚
My story is not a story of domestic violence but is of a deep feeling of abandonment & rejection, my husband grew up in a alcohol, drug, domestic violence, poverty, lack of environment.
A reminder of the mahi I have done and the journey my husband is coming through, your courageous share means I understand him soo much more now, your sharing helped fill in the blanks my husband hasn't yet been able to share in detail that I soo desperately wanted to understand, I am genuinely grateful, your book is giving him hope, so again a heart felt thank you, arohatino nui 💚

Intense

So intense and confronting, sometimes I had to stop just to take in what I had just heard. I cried countless times but therapeutic tears.

Most healing book I've ever read/heard

Would recommend this book to all men regardless of the trauma in their lives. Cuts to the core of some very difficult topics.
