An empowering guide to recovering from the damage of childhood sexual abuse and living with confidence. This is a zesty self-help book without therapy jargon, but also without simplistic answers to a very complex and deep wound. It will help readers find the strength to come to terms with what happened to them in the past, to break negative behaviour patterns in the present and to make their dreams a reality. To put on a funky new pair of shoes and step into the future with confidence. Written in a chatty, accessible style, Rebecca Mitchell blends a range of personal experiences of recovery with professional insight and practical steps for change.
Chapters include: Is It Just Me?; Growing Up: It's A Family Affair; Shame: The Blame Game; Anger: Fade To Red; Sex: The Final Frontier; Forgiveness: How Will That Help Me?; A New Beginning: Dreams Can Come True.
Rebecca Mitchell, herself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, founded a support and recovery organization called "Into the Light". Its website is visited by people from all over the world. She holds several professional qualifications in counselling and group facilitation, and has written widely on relationships and dating.
