As part of the Sector-Led presentations for Social Work Week 2023, Beverley Ann hosted and co-presented ”Don’t Tell Me – Ask Me Listening to the Voice of The Adult Child“, alongside Chris Tuck and Alethea Stirling-Chambers.

You can watch the video presentation here.

As an award-winning, accredited, recovery coach and Inspirational Speaker, I share my own story and lived experience of overcoming major trauma, of growing up in several children’s homes, the main carer of 5 siblings and also sexual and physical abuse from an early age,  hence specialising in Adverse Childhood experiences (ACEs). As an adult who has been diagnosed with a chronic illness, this has enabled me to fully experience the effectiveness of following a recovery programme, with the added support of coaching for recovery and live my life following my own life purpose and in the best health.

Highlights as a speaker include:

  • Presenting to various audiences including Category D male adult prisoners for an interactive personal development/business workshop,
  • Speaking with various clergy members from churches in Tunbridge Wells Kent
  • Heading the panel for Q&A at the first Kent showing of the documentary Resilience at Tonbridge School, together with an independent sold out London showing in 2019 and Sevenoaks School.
  • Regular radio/media guest and business networking speaker
  • Being a referral practitioner and accredited Wellbeing Coach with The Chrysalis Effect and The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) together with my continued personal development (CPD) involves me being active within forums and an ambassador with several charities, together with being a member of the IRCT (Institute of Recovery from Childhood Trauma).
