Madeleine in the Media


If anyone had told me a few years ago that one day I would be giving radio and TV interviews, speaking publicly or writing a book; I would never have believed them.  But after sharing my story publicly for the first time in September 2014 I realised that my voice and words are now my strength and I will continue to speak out against sexual violence for all those who can’t find their voice yet.

I want people to know that they are not what happened to them, that its never too late to get support and that they can heal from sexual violence and transform their pain into something positive.

My aim is that by sharing my story it inspires hope for other people to understand that if we choose to we can get past anything in life.  After all it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it.

“What if I’m right? What if we could live a better, freer, stronger life? Stand up and do what’s right. What if people had a conversation that everyone is so afraid to have?”

Was so exciting to speak in front of a live audience! ⁣

I was invited by the head teacher of Renfrew High School to share my story with his staff⁣

He originally heard me share my story last June at @tedx_glasgow

I got out of my joggy bottoms and slippers, put a dress on and even straightened the back of my hair!! ⁣

Speaking out to end the shame, stigma and silence surrounding sexual violence and to help others find their courage and voice too ⁣

Hey @GavinWilliamson your arbitrary grading system downgraded my child and many others by THREE GRADES.

This generation has done nothing to deserve this daylight robbery of opportunity.

They are victims of circumstances and your incompetence. #AlevelResults #alevels2020

I saw this posted by @SVCCork over on @instagram and it stopped me in my tracks! 😫😫

Staying Grounded Through The Body

A time for learning

What did you learn last week? I don't know about you but my emotions were all over the place! I realised that I had grown very used to having the house and my office to myself and liked my own company. However, two daughters who flew our nest have returned and my...
