Really enjoyed my conversation with Emma Jane Taylor, as so much of what she said resonated with me!
We are both passionate about sharing our painful past experiences in order to show people that we can heal and transform our pain into something better. Using our voices to speak for the voiceless
She published her book, Don’t Hold Back in 2018 which is her personal and traumatic story of struggle and hardship and It has given her the positive tools and focus she needed to fight back; to create a powerhouse of strength; compassion and dedication to living
I’ve read her fantastic book and it’s one of healing and hope
Some key points from our interview:
How together we are so much stronger How forgiveness freed herself to move forward How finding her voice is now her power How she had to learn to adjust after being abandoned by her Father at just 11 years old How she believes we need to stop labelling people and look at what’s behind their behaviour How and A – Z of therapy helped her How she believes it’s important to never stop learning "We can get anything we want, if we just learn to step over our fear" - Emma Jane Taylor

"Unbroken: Healing Through Storytelling" features individuals who have all triumphed after adversity and have not just bounced back in life, but forward and are now making a difference for others.
Hosted by Madeleine Black, the show will share stories of all the amazing people Madeleine has met on her own journey as an author/speaker and these stories will heal, motivate, inspire and bring hope when they share their wisdom and knowledge with her.
She really believes in the power that comes when we share our stories, that in fact we are not story tellers but story healers. Tune in to discover what helped them to stay unbroken and together we will discover that none of us are broken beyond repair.
She has her own unusual personal story which she uses to inspire and motivate others. She chose to forgive the two men who gang raped her at thirteen years old.
Her memoir, "Unbroken", was published on April 4th, 2017 and she continues to work as a psychotherapist.
