Our regular get togethers for survivors of domestic abuse are going from strength to strength. Its possible to feel quite emotional and upset hearing about some of the tough issues that our ladies and gentlemen have encountered. However, focusing on the positive steps forward and enthusiasm to make change is an absolute inspiration. We have seen huge progress, in both inner confidence and also practical strength to move forward and bring about change.
With skills such as interview pointers, public speaking tips, financial planning and CV advice on the agenda we have helped with a more confident approach to job seeking which has been a great favourite for regaining self confidence and financial freedom. Our open discussions with experts in areas as diverse (or linked as the case maybe!) as law, housing, therapy, fitness and health, natural health, finance and teaching have provided hours of thought proving and sometimes painful advice.
People have made friends, and become frustrated, gone 5 steps forward and sometimes 1 step back. But we can honestly say things haven’t stayed the same and the feedback so far is thats a good thing, and means the light is closer to the end of the tunnel.
Its hard to write updates about groups of a private and confidential nature but I just wanted to share, that don’t be scared to reach out in times of darkness. If you are feeling alone in your relationship and spending more times scared and in tears, it could be that something is seriously wrong and this could implicate you and if you have children their future too. Don’t be scared to see if you could benefit by joining our ongoing help to move on from abuse.
