Choices is a 6 week group programme that supports survivors to explore what makes a healthy or abusive relationship, the impact of abuse has on children, what makes a perpetrator and to recognise early warning signs.
Participants support each other and often continue to meet after the programme finishes.
Our self-esteem group follows on from the Choices programme , but survivors can join the group even if they have not attended the Choices programme.
Surviving domestic abuse can leave lasting impacts on your confidence and self esteem.
Our group aims to support you to rebuild that confidence and create friendships and relationships that will support you.
Stop Think Feel
We run the STF programme in conjunction with Sapiens.
The main aim of the group is to improve a survivor’s ability to manage intense emotions – particularly distressing emotions (such as anger, sadness, anxiety, etc.) which can feel overwhelming and unmanageable at times.
The group has been specifically designed for delivery within the domestic abuse sector using theory from the fields of mentalisation, domestic abuse and emotional resilience. The model has been designed to help transform an emotional state into a thought process. By doing this behaviour and relationship patterns can change over time. The model also has a focus on relationship health and development of self safety and soothing.
