Emily Jacob is pioneering a new way to help support survivors of rape go beyond mere surviving and to living a reconnected life again. Through curating the knowledge, techniques and tools that helped her in her own recovery, she now uses her skills as a coach and NLP master practitioner to guide survivors from a place of fear and anxiety, from living with shame & self-blame, from being disconnected from mind and body, from not knowing how to be in this world of ‘after’, to a life that is connected, that is empowered, that is free. So that rape isn’t a sentence for a half-life and the only scars are the memory, integrated into the past, with no impact on the present or future.
Emily achieves this for her clients through one-to-one coaching, and through a self-coaching programme of knowledge and empowerment, guiding survivors through the exercises that will transform their lives. She also provides daily support to survivors all over the world in the ReConnected Life Community.
Emily’s vision is for a world where the conversation has moved from blaming victims to condemning rapists. A world where survivors feel safe to report, knowing that courts will convict. A world where survivors are supported through all stages of physical, mental and spiritual recovery. And a world where rape becomes rare to non-existent, because rapists know that they will be found out and spend a long time behind bars. In order to facilitate this vision she will often be found either blogging for Metro, and Huffington Post, and any other outlet that will have her, or standing on a pulpit declaring her message of a kinder more compassionate world for survivors to anyone who will host her to speak.

Silence Hurts: Talk Hard
by Emily Jacob
Silence hurts. It eats us from the inside. It traps us, making sure we feel isolated and alone. In talking there is a taking back of control. In talking we find that we are not alone, that there are others, that others have healed, that healing is possible, that there is hope. In talking we find community. In talking there is power. Talk hard.
