Easy to read Information, Support and Hope Being sexually abused is one of the most destructive events that can occur to someone, especially a child. It can lead to feelings of pain, shame and trauma which stay with a person throughout their life, damaging their adult relationships and preventing them from living life to the full.This does not have to be the case, however! Rebecca Mitchell, who was sexually abused as a child by someone close to her, passionately believes that you do not have to be defined by your past. Whatever damage you have suffered in the past, it is never too late to put on a new pair of shoes – to build a successful future and live your dreams.
New Shoes offers simple, friendly and achievable advice for stepping out of the shadow of sexual abuse and discovering the hidden inner strength that will give you hope and self-confidence today. Rebecca Mitchell herself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, founded ‘Into the Light’ for people who have experienced sexual abuse and those that support them. She holds several professional qualifications in counselling and group facilitation, and has written widely on sexual abuse, relationships and dating.
