12 steps to rebuild your life after domestic abuse

First published on Life Coach Directory: https://www.lifecoach-directory.org.uk/memberarticles/12-steps-to-rebuild-your-life-after-domestic-abuse Survivors of domestic abuse can find themselves in a weird space: some have described it as a limbo, others as a no-man’s land, stuck in an unending stretch of grey.  Some have felt like they are lost in wilderness of confusion, uncertainty and doubt. The situation is that they are no longer in the abusive relationship. However, their experiences in the relationship have so impacted them that they are not where they were before the abusive relationship. Indeed, they might even feel that they are no longer who they were as a person, before they got entangled in the relationship. […]

5 reasons you’re still trapped after domestic abuse

First published on Counselling Directory: https://www.counselling-directory.org.uk/memberarticles/5-reasons-youre-still-trapped-after-domestic-abuse One of my pet peeves in any discussion on the subject of domestic abuse is the question: “Why doesn’t *she leave?”  It’s extremely invalidating when the question is asked directly of the victim/survivor by those to whom she turns to for support.  Indeed, it can be devastating.  It can reinforce for the victim/survivor the experience of being blamed for the abuse they are receiving.  It can re-traumatize the victim/survivor. The more appropriate question should be, “Why does *he keep doing that?”  However, exploring this question further is subject for another article. […]

Lessons from Jersey: Healing, Freedom and Being Present

Jesery taught me some principles of healing, freedom and being present … It was only two days into my holiday and it might as well have been over. My feet were hurting. Terribly. My legs were achy and wobbly, especially behind my knees. My thighs were throbbing and ankles sore. When I moved, it felt like I’d been carrying lead plastered all over my body.  […]

What is your aim for Counselling? What do you want out of it?

What is your aim for counselling? As a client, what do you want out of it? As a counsellor, why do you do it? I'd called an ‘emergency’ supervision session because I was still reeling from two of the counselling sessions I’d had the day before: one in my private practice and the other in [...]

Here’s How to Change Your Current Reality Especially If It’s Toxic or Doesn’t Serve You, So you can Defy It – Even if Nothing’s Worked Before!

Precisely 5 years ago to the exact month of my business launch, my marriage officially came to an end - after nearly two and a half years of a horrendous separation and divorce process.

Why You Need to Speak Up

Dear Blossom How are you doing, in this season of goodwill?  Are you looking forward to the big Christmas day/weekend?  To spending time with family and friends?  Or are missing certain family members and friends and feeling rather lonely and blue?  Whatever the case, do speak up for yourself when you need to. Why?  Because when you don’t, not only are you doing yourself a disservice, you are doing a disservice to others.  […]

If you want a change, make a change

Dear Blossom It’s amazing how the outdoors gives one a fresh perspective. I find it fascinating  how engaging with nature, just going for a walk, can clear the cobwebs from one’s head.  This thought came to mind the other day, which started out rather groggy for me – what with having so much to sift through and just generally feeling ‘meh’.  I went for a walk – it was cold, crisp and clear – and came back home with the reminder that: “If you’re doing something, and it’s not giving you the results you want, do something different.” […]

With Whom Do You Hang Out?

Dear Blossom Have a quick review of the last 6 weeks: where did you spend most of your time? Who did you spend significant moments with? With whom did you share your highs and your lows, your doubts and your dreams? And how did you feel on the inside afterwards? Honoured? Listened to? Inspired? Motivated? Or was it the opposite? […]
