HI, began as my own journey to heal when I asked for help with my make-up through a family member following years of being unwell as a result of prolonged grooming and abuse as a child.
I was extremely lucky with the help I received.
The help and support I have experienced has changed my life for the better, and I have achieved so much.
Life has gone from me being extremely unwell; unable to leave the house, heavily medicated, long stays in medical facilities and emergency admissions, dissociative episodes, night terrors…..to a life with happiness and love for myself and others.
I have worked hard and learnt from everyone who has helped me.
I cannot thank everyone enough for their support, time and for believing in Healing Image HI and for what it has done for me, and for the potential it has to offer others.
Five years ago Healing Image HI became a “Subject Heading” on emails, the words somehow evolved.
Healing Image HI was “me” asking for help, following a bad experience in a department store, where I had gone for help with make-up.
Feeling more confident with my image, I began trying more and more things, and I began my journey to being well.
It was at this point that I decided to share my story and work on the project, which is now Healing Image HI.
During this radio series I will be speaking with Guests; Caryn Franklin MBE, Ariane Poole; Professional Make-up Artist, Joyce Marter, Author of The Financial Mindset Fix, Sharon Smith from GI Jane Bootcamp, Nevo Burrell; Events Director at The Federation of Image Professionals International FIPI, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina; who gave the sentence of 175 years to Larry Nassar, who abused many members of The US Olympic Gymnastic Team
MY new found confidence has enabled me to try anything and everything that comes my way.
In 2015 I completed the London Marathon, I have completed a Foundation Course in the Meisner Technique at The Actors Temple in London.
I am currently recording an Audio Book telling my story and to support the use of journalling in a purposeful way.
Some broadcasts will cover my experiences as a patient receiving care from mental health professionals and facilities in the UK and US.
Also discussed is the current support I am now receiving from a Specialist Centre for management of my Complex PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder.
I will share my experience of going through a Police Investigation into my abuse and my personal contribution to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.
My grateful thanks go to all involved for their generousity with their time and sponsorship for the Healing Image Hi” series.
My ambition is that I am in a position to provide information, ideas, evidence and share my passion to help survivors of historic abuse and trauma.
I am available as a Speaker for events.
