In her early thirt­ies, Rac­hel suf­fered two major de­pres­sive epi­sodes. These two epi­sodes have be­come the de­fin­ing events of her life. Since then, she has writt­en about the con­di­tion, and her re­covery, in books that have been read by tens of thousands of peo­ple.

Her mem­oir "Black Rain­bow" was a Sun­day Times be­stsell­er in 2014, and her second book on wellbe­ing "Walk­ing on Sunshine: 52 Small Steps to Hap­pi­ness" is an in­ter­nation­al be­stsell­er and has been pub­lished in the USA, Canada, Poland, Ger­many, Tur­key and Croatia.

Rac­hel now speaks pub­lic­ly about her ex­peri­ence of de­press­ion and re­cove­ry to help educate and break stig­ma. She is an of­fici­al am­bassador for Re­think Ment­al Il­l­ness, Young Minds, Sane and The Co­un­sell­ing Foun­da­tion, and her latest book " The Happy Kitch­en: Good Mood " food was pub­lished in Janua­ry 2017.
