Domestic Violence has been an issue for a long time, and it seems that it has been highlighted over the last few years. Though 1 in 6 women experience domestic violence, and even though the numbers are lower, so can men. There are many wonderful support services out there, and Body Mind Soul Clinic want to also be part of the solution for many women, men, children and families.
We want to support you in understanding the relationship you may currently be in or have been in. To also help walk with you in taking those next steps forward so that you feel more in control of the life that you desire. To reduce the impact of intergenerational trauma and to also stop the cycle of violence. To help support you as you heal from the trauma of abuse and help you build back that sense of self. And to support you in understanding what healthy relationships look like so that you're not repeating the cycle.
We are currently growing our team so we can support even more people on their healing journey after experiencing domestic abuse. So contact our office to find out more information and also on how to access one or our therapists.
