Our Women’s programmes assist:
- Women who are in (and have been in) an abusive or violent relationship
- Women who are struggling with issues of anger or violence themselves.
We often meet with women who are in both categories above. In these cases we may combine both programmes or suggest that the woman completes one programme prior to beginning the other.
We offer a combination of group and individual counselling for all women. We will help assess the best course of action with the woman herself at an initial interview, which is always free of charge.
If you have experienced domestic violence in any of its form, of if you are struggling with your anger, then our women’s programmes are for you!
Our Men’s Living Without Violence/Anger Management programmes seek to help men for whom anger, abuse or violence is an issue in their lives. This issue may be evident in a number of ways, including:
Your partner or children may be scared of you when you are in a bad mood
You may shout, swear or say things to your partner or children that you don’t mean
You may try to control your partner’s movements or who she sees
You may go for several hours without talking to your partner when you are angry
Your children are beginning to copy you when you are angry.
If any of these behaviours apply to you, or if you (or others) feel that you have an issue with anger, abuse or violence, then our Men’s Living Without Violence/Anger Management programme will be able to help you.
