We invite people to engage in conversations about the kinds of relationships they prefer to have. These conversations help clients to realize their own skills and knowledge in order move away from abuse and towards the values that are important to them.
Often women mistakenly blame themselves for their partner’s violence. Other effects women experience include feelings of helplessness, fear, anger, depression, shame and low self-worth. The Women’s programme provides support for the partners of the men involved in New Start. Either by phone or, in a face to face session with a women’s counsellor, women can begin to take back control of their lives to increase their personal safety.
