Rachel is an experienced speaker who gives talks on mental health at conferences, law firms, schools, universities, graduations, literary festivals and mental health charities.
Although she has spoken on many aspects of mental health and the healing power of the arts, the talk Rachel gives most frequently is based on her own experience of learning 'how to stay sane in a crazy world'. In the first half hour Rachel opens a dialogue about the stigma surrounding mental illness. She tells her own story of suffering from clinical depression with reference to the dangers of trying to do it all, and explores preventative measures as well as the tools and strategies she used to recover. For the second half hour Rachel mediates a question and answer session with the audience who are encouraged to share their own experiences.
Recent venues Rachel has spoken at include Slaughter and May, CMS Cameron McKenna, Nabarro, DLA Piper UK LLP, Bird & Bird, Herbert Smith Freehills LLP, Linklaters LLP, Black Rock Insurance, Bonas MacFarlane Education, News UK, St Paul’s Girls School, Wellington College, the University of Greenwich, Leeds University, the Oxford Literary Festival, a mental health lunch hosted by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and a physical and mental health festival organized by Manchester University.
