Chapter 1

The courage to be me is an illustrated book about courage, self-compassion and hope. The book tells the story of a group of women who are taking their first steps towards rebuilding their lives after rape or sexual abuse. In chapter 1 we meet Jo who tells us why she found it so hard to seek help and how she had coped with her abuse before entering therapy.
