The StepForward Recovery Practice

Wellbeing: Coaching survivors of Abuse and Trauma to have a voice and balanced life.

Guest 17 Elaine Wilkins


Joining Chris and Beverley is special guest Elaine Wilkins, who is a published author and multi-Award winning founder of ‘The Chrysalis Effect’ a Trauma Informed Coaching organization that delivers the first ever: Trauma-informed Recovery Pathway’ for those suffering with multiple symptoms including ME, CFS, fibromyalgia and Long Covid post viral fatigue.

Her own 6 year illness left her bedbound with no treatment plan. Her subsequent recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome was the catalyst to her 15 year journey to transform the attitude, approach and accessibility of recovery from fatigue related illnesses.

Her work has supported over 5000 people to recover their health, delivered ground-breaking trauma informed accredited courses for therapists and clinicians, building an incredible team of trauma informed recovery specialists. Her dream of a holistic trauma informed recovery pathway being immediately accessible at point of GP referral became reality in 2022. If you have any questions please contact us on:

Following a long career in Sales, Management and starting several businesses, coaching and enabling others has always been a major part of my career. By using Wellbeing coaching this enables positive results in all aspects of Life, Business & Health to be the Best YOU either 1:1 or in groups.

As a speaker, my mission is to enable Adult Survivors to have a voice and to raise awareness and enable Families, friends and colleagues to be able to ask questions and be more aware of overcoming abuse and/or trauma for the best support.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
