Moving Beyond Abuse

BTSE Associate Members, Home-Start Bromley, talk about their new group for mothers who have experienced domestic abuse.

At Home-Start Bromley we provide support to families in the area who may be struggling – going through crisis or transitions.

Our aim is to get positive outcomes for both children and their parents.

We’re now pleased to be starting a new support group for mothers who’ve experienced domestic abuse…

Moving Beyond Abuse

Called Moving Beyond Abuse, this new support group starts in Autumn 2021.

The group is specifically for mothers who have experienced domestic abuse in different ways and who require support in moving forward from this. It’s an 8 week programme, one and half hours each week, led by Belinda Smith, an experienced and qualified BACP Counsellor who specialises in working with women.

Providing a safe space

The group will provide a safe space for mothers to come together to process their experiences of domestic abuse. It’s open to any mothers in the Bromley area who have experienced emotional, mental, physical, financial abuse or who have been victim of coercive control.

Over the course of 8 weeks the group will consider issues such as:

  • Recognising and processing the impact of domestic abuse
  • Strategies for supporting your children to overcome this experience
  • Managing co-parenting and contact arrangements
  • Personal boundaries
  • Healing, Recovery and Moving forward.

What can participants expect?

  • A safe, caring, and supportive environment – where you can share your experience
  • A contract will be agreed as a group, the importance of confidentiality will be understood and respected by everyone in the group
  • Meeting other mothers who have also been impacted by domestic abuse – shared experience.
