The StepForward Recovery Practice

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

I wanted to take the opportunity to invest time in myself and be accountable.  By taking part in the workshop it focused me on self-care and now I concentrate on nutrition and “me time”

Beverley has an extraordinary way of listening and her recall/memory is quite remarkable. Without appearing to take notes she could remember what each person in the group said.

I found the group sessions helped me to understand my values and beliefs.  Working with others I felt less isolated and could relate to a lot of what was shared by other participants.  My compassion for others and myself grew.

Would you recommend Coaching to others and why?

YES, in my opinion it is a life skill, one that everyone can benefit from. Life is hard and full of struggles.

Therapy has given me a tool for life. I am more in touch with who I am now than I have ever been and for that I am forever grateful.

I was always on the fence about group therapy but I learnt so much. Being surrounded by people who listened and could relate to what I was saying, and likewise, made me feel at peace and like I wasn’t alone.


Beverley is hands down, one of the best people you will ever meet. She is patient, personable, caring, trusting, grounded and experienced!

I felt like I could tell her anything and everything right from the get-go. On one occasion I brought up a painful memory from when I was younger, something I have carried around with me for years.

Beverley was very understanding and she asked the right questions and I began to see things from a different perspective. Since then I have been able to move on and feel differently and more positive about the situation. She is phenomenal! Beverley has taught me skills that I will continue to use forever and for that I am so grateful! Five stars from me, and if I could give more I would.

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 their own life in a healthy and practical way.

I feel I have been able to identify and see the process/chain of events that lead to me feeling this way, and am able to interrupt the process and stop it before it affects me too much.

 I have also been able to manage healthier expectations, both in being realistic in what I can achieve with work and also in how long things will take, and appreciate the smaller steps and achievements that will lead to larger goals.

Beverley has the uncanny ability to zero in on the root of your issue and offer the exact help you need, and give you the tools to continue to improve yourself long after your sessions have finished.

I thoroughly enjoyed working through Beverley’s coaching session with a group of like-minded individuals. I felt I was in a supportive and safe environment to explore areas of my life that I wanted to change and expand and make better.

Very interesting & thought-provoking exercises, some of which I wanted to resist, but having worked through them, I’m better able to make changes to old, established thought patterns and behaviours.

Any apprehension I had at the start was soon gone and I found the whole experience enlightening and enriching. I’ve also met people I will remain friends with after the course has finished.
