OUR CORE SERVICES

Working with male perpetrators of domestic abuse and violence

We have developed a two-stage model based on principles of counselling. This is a 30-week programme for men, which starts with a suitability assessment, followed by 13 weeks of one to one counselling and then 16 weeks of group counselling.

We help break into the cycle of abuse and violence by challenging and supporting perpetrators to:

  • Take responsibility for their actions
  • Develop empathy and respect for those around them
  • Generate the motivation to make change in their lives
  • Reduce and stop altogether their abusive, angry and violent behaviours

We regularly provide reports on attendance, engagement and progress for probation, court, social services and other bodies.

Supporting survivors of domestic abuse and violence

We offer a specialist support service for people of all genders experiencing domestic abuse or violence, or who are still experiencing the effects of it. This includes elder abuse and child-to-parent abuse. The safety of you and any dependants will be regarded as most important.

You can access the service while you are living with the person who is abusive or violent, or if you are living separately.  In the case of abuse from a male partner, the partner doesn’t need to be on our men’s programme for you to use the service.

The service is provided by a specialist counsellor who can offer safety planning, practical suggestions, counselling and sign-posting to other useful services. The counsellor will not judge you or make choices for you.

Our aim is to help you live safely and free from fear and to recover from the effects of the abuse or violence you have faced. To do this we will:

  • Suggest measures you can take to keep you and your family physically and emotionally safe
  • Help you consider options for regaining control over your life and have confidence in your own decisions
  • Explore your feelings about your situation (past and present) in a safe environment
  • Give you space and time to reflect more clearly on your life
