If at anytime you have questioned yourself whether the way you handle things could be improved or just that there must be a better way of living for you and your family you should have already done this program. Good thing is, it’s never too late to change!

At this stage I have only done three sessions and I am looking forward to the new term. It can really have a positive affect in every aspect of your life i.
If you are hesitant about the program, we all were! It is not that you have nothing to lose; you have everything to gain-it’s a rewarding time that benefits not only you, but your family and friends. It is a life time changing time that you control if you chose to do so.

Encourage them to do it. They will get a lot out of this program.
Pick up the Bloody phone! It was the best move I ever made!

This program will teach you to listen and understand your partner, your feelings and learn ownership and self control.

He has changed in so many ways – mainly he is respectful towards me and I feel safe with him. I have noticed that he listens to me more, lets me explain how I’m feeling instead of just listening to his.
He has more controlled and is less angry and sensitive to things I might say, He does not bite back a easily. His coping mechanisms are a lot better.
He manages his anger. He talks to me about his feelings, which helps him to stay level headed.
He has stopped making everything all about him. He is a better husband because he is more aware of when he starts his abuse and stops very quickly.
Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
We had tried everything before this program; my husband had seen counsellors, psychologists, doctors and nothing worked. He went to another program which was a lot closer to where we lived and was half the price but after 5 weeks he was complaining how boring it was and how he wasn’t getting anything out of it.
Congratulations! I have been feeling very depressed about the recent coverage of FV and the constant shaming of men. With no exploration of their (our/my) humanity, their lives, or discussion about whether they can be helped, let alone any thought of whether we actually should help these men, or how.
