A short and to the point post for you today.
There’s an event happening in Hull that I am delighted to be a part of. I have known Stella Eden virtually for quite some time via Twitter, not only am I looking forward to the event but also meeting her in person.
Stella is also a fellow author, find out my thoughts on her book – The right to be me– A harrowing tale of a woman’s struggle to free herself from the clutches of an abusive marriage.
One in four women experience Domestic Abuse in their lifetime and Stella Eden is one of them.
After many years of emotional, psychological, physical and economic abuse she found, the courage and strength to leave.
The difficulties she faced- stalking and continued abuse with lack of help to stop this made it a very traumatic time in her life. Accepting no one was going to help her, Stella turned her focus on what she could control. She made many changes to her life- learning to speak again and regaining her self worth.
This is what brought Stella to hosting an event to help women who find themselves in a similar situation to the one she faced.
“Sort it with Stella & Friends – helping women affected by Domestic abuse to reclaim their power- their inner self “
Guest speakers – Stella, along with Hull Women’s Aid- Jennifer Gilmour – Alex Carling- Lucy K Swain and Laughter Therapy
Monday 10th June 2019 at the Holiday Inn Marina, Hull 10am- 4pm
Tickets for Sort it with Stella & Friends via Eventbrite.
I will be speaking about what I went through and how I have transformed my life since leaving an abusive relationship. I have a 45 minute slot which will allow me to go into the details of when I recognised the abuse, how I have pieced my life together piece by piece and how I have built up the strength to speak out.
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 to often see those that have experienced domestic abuse as a stereotype.
An event not to be missed.
