Hi, I'm Jennifer Gilmour

Author, Advocate & Public Speaker

Together we are louder.

I am an author and advocate for women in abusive relationships, using my own experiences of domestic abuse as a catalyst to bring awareness and to help others. I have published two publications, Isolation Junction and Clipped Wings which have both been Amazon Best Sellers and received awards. I speak at events across the UK and continue to raise awareness through my blog posts, public speaking, television and radio interviews and social influence.

Book Me For An Event

UK and online

“Jennifer speaks with passion and insight about her lived experience. She has the ability to talk objectively and with amazing insight into her experience while remaining one of the most positive voices for recovery from domestic abuse I know. She offers hope and inspiration to anyone that had experienced living with coercive control and will challenge professionals who far too often see those that have experienced domestic abuse as a stereotype”

-Sue Penna

Book Me For A Talk

UK and online

“Jennifer Gilmour is an inspiration. She has come to my bookshop, Write Blend, on two occasions to give talks about her books. Her thoughtful, calm approach has left the audience with a great feeling of hope and her warmth and wit make her talks a delight. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and her books. She provides an essential service and it is no overstatement to say that she is a life-saver”

-Bob Stone


I have grown a digital community to support discussions around domestic abuse online. #AbuseTalk started as a Twitter Chat, developed into an online forum and also hosts a podcast.


I have written under multiple categories including fiction, non-fiction and self-help.

“I commend the author for her work on bringing this into the open”

“A brave book to write, a delicate subject matter”
