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 partners mistakenly blame themselves for their partner’s violence. Other effects partners may experience include feelings of helplessness, fear, anger, depression, shame and low self-worth. The Partner Program provides support for the partners of individuals involved in New Start. Either by phone or, in a face to face session with a counsellor, partners can begin to take back control of their lives to increase personal safety.
