Supporting adult survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA) in Handing the Shame Back
Latest Updates

About Gloria

Gloria Masters is an author and advocate for adults who have experienced child sexual abuse .


She speaks from sixteen years of lived experience and has managed to turn the final corner of healing into giving back. She does this through highlighting the issue of #csa to help other survivors.


Her second book, Flightpath to Healing – A Guide for CSA Survivors, is due in July 2022. The focus is on: Reclaiming your true self 

This extraordinary story of Gloria’s journey from darkness into light is one of hope, resilience and the unrelenting power of the human spirit to survive.

It’s June 1960, and in middle-class suburban New Zealand, a child was born into sex slavery. For the first sixteen years of her life, Gloria suffered horrendous sexual, physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her father, with no one to protect her. From the underworld of her father’s paedophile ring to the groups he trafficked her to, she found an inner strength and a light that shone so brightly, her mind was the one thing that could not be destroyed.

Experienced through the eyes of a child, On Angels Wings will forever highlight the way we deal with child abuse, shining a light on this darkness, and challenging us not to assume that every child is safe.
One voice speaking out is all it takes to save a life.

Tips for Supporting Survivors

Survivors often feel different to others, and though this is normal there are some things you can do that will help them.


Each week another tip will be posted providing tools and tips in closing the gap between understanding survivors and feeling completely helpless when trying to support them.


My blogs are designed to offer some techniques to try, as you navigate your way through post #csa trauma stress.
