Rachel Thompson is a survivor, mother, author and businesswoman. abused by a neighbour age 11 to 12 , it wasn't until the birth of her first child when Rachel was age 35 that her past came home to roost - she had not been offered therapy or support at the time of the abuse: the atmosphere in the 70's being very different to today. Rachel had pushed on through in life, at school, in her studies, sports and with a very successful career in pharmaceutical sales. Yet looking at her baby daughter Rachel was hit by the thought "how can I make sure I keep her safe?". This was the beginning of a change that saw Rachel step away from high pressure work, start her recovery journey, become an award-winning author and start projects including her own successful social media business and the Twitter-based #sexabusechat with Survivor & Therapist Bobbi Parrish. Rachel is also a the Director of the Gravity Imprint for Booktrope, bringing stories of trauma and recovery to life.
