Kirsty Spraggon is a motivational speaker and author who has spoken to thousands of people in audiences all over the world. In 2014, she bravely decided to share a deeply personal secret publicly. First in a TEDx Talk and then in a private bedroom video journal.

Her online show where she interviews guests on everything from addiction to rape  and abuse was the catalyst for her sharing her own truth. The videos have been viewed by over 1 million people. Kirsty began to receive weekly emails from others suffering, depressed and often suicidal desperate for help. She is now a passionate advocate and speaker on secrets, shame and stigma. She believes our desire to heal must be greater than our fear.

If you're looking to start the process to free yourself, Spraggon offers a six-week course to help individuals. For more information, click here.
