When attending a Live workshop do you prefer to participate online or attend a venue?

This is a question and discussion point that has come up many times especially with the changing ways of working that we have experienced over the last 2 years.

Are you ready to make a change in your life?

Have you had enough of existing and would like to feel well and happy?

Do you constantly feel tired with no motivation and overwhelmed?

Is chronic pain preventing you from leading your normal life?

If you say yes to any of these questions then message me to find out more about group workshops taking place that will enable you to turn your life around.

As a recovery practitioner with lived experience herself, I know what it feels like to have no energy or motivation, to feel that life is an everyday upheaval and a struggle. Constantly feeling ill with viruses and isolated, thinking I had lost my mind.

And now I now have a wellness tool kit that enables me to have balance. Feeling full of life, energy and wanting to start the day with choices and energy.

Join me on our workshops where you will be part of a peer support group - held on zoom or face to face in the south of England.

Take action now and send a message and take your first StepForward in making the nest change for your own life and self care 💗

A huge thank you to @christuck_wwhf who asked me to support during her workshops for overcoming Abuse.

Being able to support these courageous people attending this workshop over 8 weeks to learn and understand the physical, mental Neurological and emotional impact of abuse fills me up as you see them starting to understand they are able to have a voice and can make choices where before it seemed do challenging.

Abuse in all forms is unacceptable and it's very common to normalise, diminish and keep quiet for fear of judgement, shame and guilt whether it be experienced though childhood and or in Adulthood.

Recovery is possible and knowledge is power.... Finding balance and the courage to be vulnerable is priceless ❤️❤️

What does Self Care mean to you?

We all have different ideas about what is important to us - however being aware of how and what we need can be challenging at times, especially when we are overwhelmed or feeling anxious.

Always good to here your thoughts about what tools are in your wellness box ❤️

Feedback is powerful and always appreciated.

This was received after attending our Discovery Pathway Workshop which takes place over 6 weeks. Contact us now about more details 2022 workshops:

"Beverley took us on a gentle but powerful self discovery journey, learning in an open and honest, but safe environment.
Coaching with Beverley felt very nurturing and supportive and at the same time empowering.
I loved the way she mentored the group, the whole coaching experience was extremely valuable and I would like to say a heartfelt Thank You to Beverley.
I would definitely recommend coaching to others, and I have already recommended my husband. I think coaching can help so many people to take back control of your own life in a healthy and practical way. "

I know what it feels like to worry about symptoms and worry even more about whether I was doing the right or wrong things to recover.

The forum is a great place to ask questions.
However, knowing how reassuring it is to have a recovery expert in front of you when you have a burning question, on Wednesday 20 October we have an 'Ask the Experts session and have invited some of the fabulous recovery team to come and share their recovery wisdom with you.

So who do we have...

Amy Cooper - Naturopathy and Nutrition
Sam Varriale - Nutrition
Beverley Webb - Trauma Release
Dawn Stemmer - Psychotherapy
Rosie Haysom - Yoga Teacher

From our Recovery Community:
Heather Dunn
Phil Jaworek
Wendy Day
Alison McGrath

Being a guest on Bisi Gbadebo podcast The Restored Hope we speak about the effects of truama in childhood into adult hood.

When life is challenging we still have choices however they are not always clear. Having a voice enables me to share my own lived experience, to open discussions, inspire others and raise awareness to enable others to find ways to overcome.

Claustrophobia is one of my anxieties and a fear I am currently challenging. This week I started hot yoga in a room heated to 42-48 degrees!!

Yep I signed up as a new member with a special monthly offer -this for me ensures that I can listen to my body, acclimatise and start to reprogramme my trigger response with self love and trust.

Most importantly is being able to feel vulnerable and safe - something that I was unable to do as a child. Thank you to CJ and Ricardo @hotyogabrighton for their guidance, support & reassurance when just being in the room is a huge goal at the moment - and I look forward to returning this week as I can feel benefits already🥰

Why would I do this?

Self care, recovery & growth to thrive is something ingrained in me both with lived experience and in a professional capacity.

I have wanted to go on a retreat so I am creating a #staycation retreat and ensuring my health is at an optimum in my everyday life ❤️

I know the benefits will be worth it long term and enjoying pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

Overcoming anxiety is possible when we are ready to accept our own self love and support from those around us... Facing our fears helps us to overcome panic attacks. What is your fear? ❤️

Are you continually feeling unwell or in pain - migraine, IBS, chronic pain that continues and pain killers don't help, continued viruses, ulcers?

I recommend this book for you to read - it highlights the connection between physical and neurological pathways.

All pain is real and so is illness, however by looking at the underlying cause and not just the physical symptoms is important in recovery.

At StepForward practice we are a team of professionals who can work with you alongside your GP to overcome your pain and contact beverley@stepforwardpractice.co.uk for further information on recovery pathways and a discovery call.
