First things first, sexual abuse
does not define you.

It can happen to anyone no matter where you live, what you do, the colour of your skin or how much money you have. No matter the duration, the regularity, or what type of abuse is occurring (or occured), it all has devastating effects on the victim.

Some of us may have more tools in our coping cabinet than others, yet regardless, the violation and the hurt is never OK.

You can heal.

As a survivor of child abuse and now author, speaker and advocate for child abuse education and prevention, I want you to know that no matter what has happened you can heal and you always have your Unscathed Beauty.

What is Unscathed Beauty?

Through my journey, I have come to realise that there are some things about the human condition that no one can take away from you. It is about spirit, our core, and the innermost ‘thing’ that makes us who we are. It is the heartbeat of your soul, and like your physical heart, it is what sustains you when all else fails; it’s your unique thing.

No one can turn off your inner light; nothing can darken your inner spirit, that is yours and yours alone – your Unscathed Beauty. The essence of who we truly are is a treasured and beautiful thing that we must fight for

YOU own that. I own that.
You can never give up on yourself.

Why? Because you never really know what’s going to happen; the thing you are looking for may be just around the corner and when all else is stripped away the beauty of your soul, will forever remain unscathed.

I had to fight so hard to keep my inner light and passion alive. It was hard because I felt like I was alone. You don’t have to take this journey alone. Silence causes suffering and shame. Join us and be part of a safe and connected community.

Survival to Success

Make your darkest fight your
brightest light

Being a Survivor myself it is easy to think you are alone on your journey. But you are not. 1 in 5 children experience some form of sexual harm before the age of 18.

Childhood trauma, whether it be physical or sexual, is extremely difficult to manage. It is why I want to change the outcomes for those who have experienced childhood trauma, but also for many others.

One of the ways I do this is through my book, Unscathed Beauty…

As part of the download, you will also become part of my community ‘UBU’ where I will send occasional emails about my new books, podcasts and courses.

I look forward to having you as a part of my community.
