We are a healing haven of love, support and friendship
Shock. Denial. Fear. Shame. Confusion. Grief. Pain. Sorrow.
We know how you feel because we feel it too. We know what it feels like to move on but live each day with anxiety. We know how to deny pain, and simply move through the busyness of life. We know what it means to put on a brave face and bury the sadness. We know what it means to seek perfection to reclaim our value and to seek certainty to feel safe. We know because we are trauma survivors.
Thanks to our community, we also know that we are worthy of unconditional love and support. We know too that our resilience has strengthened us. We have discovered that our sensitivity, our tenacity, and our vulnerability are all our superpowers. We learn that our self-compassion and self-care is healing. Thanks to the support of the amazing women in our community, we are learning to thrive as we rise together.
You are not alone. We are always here for you.
"How did we get here?" This is a question that we often ask ourselves when we're sitting with a therapist, listening to a lawyer, talking to the police, on the way to a shelter, or just chatting with a friend. In these moments, we feel alone, confused and scared. For all of us in our community, we promise to be with you wherever you need to be. We know the difference it makes, to have someone that truly understands, with you. You never have to feel alone again.
We also support each other in our support group meetings, 1:1 meetings and online chat groups. "For the first time in my life, I didn't feel alone anymore. This was healing for me." These are often the words echoed by many of us after our meetings. We all feel a little nervous at first but the discomfort eases as we realise that we’re in a safe space. We share knowledge of trauma, discuss the challenges we face and share our healing experiences. We leave knowing more about how trauma has affected us, and how we can heal.
We become friends that truly understand.
