‘breaking the cycle ’™

S.O.B’s primary purpose is to help empower adult survivors to transform their lives holistically through mindset, nutrition and fitness

Are you an adult victim/survivors who has experienced any form of the following, individually or collectively:
• Emotional abuse
• Physical abuse

• Neglect
As a result of childhood abuse.

Yes? S.O.B. is here to support you.

SOB’s secondary work is to:

• Educate stakeholders – social workers / counsellors / specialist support services / Government about the impact of childhood abuse on the adult and how mindset, nutrition, fitness & de-stressing can improve the mental, emotional & physical health & well being of the adult victim & survivor.

• Work with partners, carers, family members & supporters to improve their ability to support survivors.


Chris Tuck – Founder, Author, Health & Wellness Coach


As a survivor of all forms of childhood abuse and neglect I know how challenging it is to lead a normal everyday life. With a background in accountancy I  re-trained as a health coach because of the problems I faced as a result of he abuse I had suffered. I have been a Health Coach since 2003 and have worked within the Priory Group delivering fitness programmes to inpatients. I now raise awareness about the effects of child abuse on the victims/ survivors’ mental, emotional & physical health and I am a regular speaker/presenter on TV & at national and regional conferences, & events.
