The StepForward Recovery Practice

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

Special Guest Dr Elly Hanson

Dr Elly Hanson is a clinical psychologist and researcher who focuses on preventing sexual abuse and reducing its impact, as well as more widely, helping children and young people enjoy positive relationships and thrive. She works with police, educators, charities, survivors and national organisations, in particular informing work to tackle abuse and respond effectively.

She is Research Director of Fully Human, an initiative of the PSHE Association (which supports schools in delivering good PSHE education) and in this role, wrote the report ‘Pornography and Human Futures’, an analysis of online pornography’s nature and business model, and the harms that follow. In parallel she recently developed with CEOP (part of the UK National Crime Agency) a preventative education resource for schools, Respecting me, you, us: Building healthy relationships and creating positive cultures.

She has authored a variety of academic papers and chapters, including those on online sexual abuse and its impact, and how the ‘tech freedom’ ideology has been conducive to it. Elly is also an experienced therapist and previously worked for an NHS drugs and alcohol service with survivors of abuse, in an NSPCC team for children with harmful sexual behavior's, and for a company providing residential care to looked after children.

Comments are not to be personally directed at any other person especially by name, or in a disrespectful manner and bad language will be removed.

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.
