Therapeutic support can help you to come to terms with what happened to you in your childhood and live more of the life you would like to have.
Our therapeutic support is centred on your needs, hopes and aspirations. We will work alongside you to support you to achieve these.
Our support is not time limited as we understand that recovery from abuse is a sensitive process that needs time and patience.
Our counsellors/therapists are qualified and experienced in supporting survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
If you would think you would like to have counselling/therapy please get in touch with our coordinator who talk with you about what you feel you need and help you to decide if counselling/therapy is the best option for you at this time.
You begin by tending to the soil - adding in the right amount of nutrients, sun, and water that create an optimal environment for growth.
When planting the garden of your mind, remember that you have a choice about what seeds you are planting. You can think of kindness, compassion, and wisdom as flowers that come from a well-tended garden.
You must, at times, also pull up the weeds.
THESE ARE THE THOUGHTS THAT TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE NOT ENOUGH, UNWORTHY, OF LOVE, OR HELPLESS TO CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
In your garden, you can take the weeds, and place them into compost.
There, they are held, and , in time, transformed into the rich fertile earth.
Now that you have created this space, what new seeds would you like to plant in the garden of your mind?
What would you like to believe about yourself now?
Perhaps you want to grow a new sense of self, rooted in the knowledge that you are worthy of love, kindness and respect.
You get to choose what you want to grow and flourish in yourself and your life.
It is important to take care of the new growth in your garden.
The seeds you planted may still be fresh, green sprouts that require protection and careful tending.
