Safe and self: reclaiming life following domestic violence

Support group for women

At Lifeline Northern Beaches, we are offering a support group dedicated to empowering participants to create a positive future, and creating a safe place to share experiences and coping strategies.

The group covers:


  • Defining abuse and understanding the patterns of abuse
    • Psycho-education on the cycle of violence
    • The impact of DV on you
  • Exploring myths
    • “How did I get here?”
    • Relationship warning signs
  • Impact on children
    • Understanding the issues and needs of children
  • Grief and loss
    • How you might feel after you leave an abusive relationship
    • Exploring the emotional roller coaster
  • Boundaries
  • Co-parenting
  • Future strategies for self care and developing relationships

If you are interested in taking part we would love to hear from you. If there aren’t enough people to run a group at the time you need, we also offer face-to-face counselling as an alternative.

Where: Location confirmed with you after sign up
