Riseup offers individual counselling to those who have experienced the trauma of domestic violence and abuse in an intimate partner relationship. Any form of abuse has the potential to have a deep and long term effect on someone’s ability to live life fully. Unravelling the complexities is difficult, and often requires the help of a trained and caring counsellor. Riseup Counsellors specialize in the area of family violence and abuse.
Loving someone else can often be seen as easier then loving yourself, but it is just as important. Self-compassion is a huge part of self-love and understanding, it involves noticing when you are in need and showing kindness, and sympathy to yourself – accepting what is or has happened and helping yourself as if you were helping a friend.
Riseup Society offers support groups for those impacted by domestic abuse within their intimate partner relationships. They are based on the understanding that profound healing is most often experienced in the context of a safe and supportive community. All groups focus on educating participants on the dynamics and impact of abuse, and on assisting them in their journey towards a holistic healing of mind, body and spirit.
