A Small Boy Smiling
by Matt Carey
As a small boy Matt Carey loved to ride his bike, play football with friends and to laugh. He loved life and was always smiling.
When he was just eight years old, he was targeted by a group of predatory paedophiles who subjected him to 18-months of horrific sexual abuse. He was too ashamed and scared to tell anyone what had happened...not his parents, friends or family.
In his new book, A Small Boy Smiling, Matt tells a remarkable story of survival and overcoming the trauma, guilt and shame of childhood sexual abuse, teenage alcoholism, and post traumatic stress disorder.
His lifelong search for peace, love and healing culminates in personal spiritual awakening and a desire to help other survivors of child sexual abuse to discover their own healing.
I am a survivor of child sexual abuse.
A Small Boy Smiling is my story of how I overcame my demons and learned to love and laugh again as an adult.
It took a lot for me to “go public” and write a book to share my story, but I felt I had to do it.
Not just for my own sanity and healing, but also to help other survivors of child sexual abuse.
Today, I advocate, run workshops for survivors of child sexual abuse and professionals, and offer myself as a consultant and inspirational speaker.
We are all survivors.
Please feel free to contact me if I can help you on your self-healing journey.
You’re not alone,
