The StepForward Recovery Practice

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

StepForward to have a Voice

Giving a voice to Survivors of childhood sexual abuse and regular support for wellbeing to enable recovery, healing and self-care/awareness.  As a Survivor of Childhood sexual abuse myself, I have learnt so much from being able to meet other survivors too.

Our monthly wellbeing group in Sevenoaks, Kent is held on a Thursday evening from 7pm-9pm.

With an interactive evening and meeting as equals for support and to gain a greater understanding of ourselves, also recognising strength, resilience and courage to overcome, heal and celebrate being who we are. There will be informative speakers and presentations at some events also.

The most important part of the evening is for you to feel welcome and safe.  We do not ask you to disclose any personal inforchildhood, abuse, trauma, stress, changemation in the group, unless you wish to within a speaking opportunity.

There will also be creative opportunities in the group and look forward to this important and valued event thriving and growing for everyone.

A donation from each attendee is to cover costs of hosting these events. Tea and coffee are included too.

My mission for these events is to give an opportunity for all survivors to have a voice in whichever way is best for you and look forward to meeting you.  Contact me about coming to an event and booking your place.

If you have any questions  or if you are looking to raise awareness of this group, I can forward a link or a poster for you to share.
