Sharon’s story so far…
In September 2013 Sharon set up in self-employment as an inspirational speaker, writer and poet under the banner
‘A Compassionate Voice.’ The sole purpose was to creatively help others through her own experiences with mental health, depression, addiction, debt, recovery and well-being.
Like most, since starting the business there have been many highs and lows along the way, but Sharon truly believed she had found her purpose in life and was determined to overcome any obstacle to reach her goal. This is the reason why A Compassionate Voice has evolved into what it is today, because of Sharon’s perseverance, drive and devotion to what she considered to be her calling.
Sharon’s story has caught the attention of many, however, although there is an ongoing media interest with regard to her journey, more importantly for her is where she is now, and how she can continue to help make a difference for others.
Sharon’s love for animals, wildlife and nature has been with her since being a little girl, but since 2010 this passion has returned to her in earnest, so along with Sharon’s allegiance with mental health issues, recovery and well-being, she also uses the spoken and written word to help raise awareness to some of the countless issues of animal abuse across the world. Sharon truly believes that compassion and kindness to all living beings ( including ourselves) is not only prerequisite for our own wellbeing and health, but is also the only way we will create a better world for everyone.
In February 2016 Sharon tested the water and self published her first book titled There Is a Way. Going public about mental health issues, past mistakes and life errors that most people would probably choose to closet, rather than use as examples in a book to help others was a huge gamble to take, but she felt it was a venture worth the risk. A choice, which was definitely the right one to make, as a few months later the book reached No 25 in the Amazon UK’s self-help category.
Due to the book’s success, on August 28th 2017 an updated version of ‘There Is a Way’ hit the high-street and on-line book shops, under a new title Stripped Bare.
The second half of 2017 saw the release of Sharon’s self-help memoir Stripped Bare, bringing about an overwhelming media response, which included features in The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella Magazine, The Daily Express and her debut TV interview with Eammon Holmes and Ruth Langsford on ITV’S This Morning. From September 2013, Sharon has been raising awareness to the issues and values she holds dear, hopefully inspiring and helping others, so this has been an extremely encouraging time. Another lesson in never giving up in what we believe is the right journey to take.
Stripped Bare has received some wonderful reviews on both its Amazon, and Waterstones webpage, however, the comments and recommendations published on Sharon’s official face book page sharonacv, and the heartfelt personal messages have been overwhelming. Confirmation to her that the decision she made to share her journey was the right one to make, and the only endorsements she needs to continue with the completion of Stripped Bare’s follow up book titled ‘Step Outside the Box.’
Sharon’s talk packages have already been a huge success at numerous and varied functions, including annual conferences, well-being events and mental health seminars. For further information, and, or to book Sharon as a speaker please contact via email email@example.com
