  • Q&A with Australian Health Practitioners

    Are there any support groups for women who have been abused mentally?

    I live in Melbourne and would love to be able to share experiences and to have support to recover from the psychological abuse I have endured. I have low self esteem etc as a result.

    Hi there,
    I'm a holistic counsellor in Melbourne and for the last 12 years I've been running a support group for women who have experienced any form of child abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, neglect).  Although you haven't mentioned this at all, many women who find themselves in abusive relationships have had this kind of history. 
    We don't talk about the past so much as to share what we're dealing with currently - a safe space to feel understood, heard and accepted. 
    If you feel this group might suit you it runs the 1st Wednesday monthly from 6.30 - 8.30 in Canterbury starting back up again in February.  Cost is just $5.  Let me know if you'd like more details or would like to book in.
    Warm Regards,
    Tabby Dougall

Light and consistent reflection on the process to return to love and the truth of who you really are helps to re-train the mind to focus on the love that you are rather than the rubish you have been force-fed from an abusive relationship or traumatic experience.
