Building Better Relationships (BBR – 30 session accredited domestic abuse perpetrator programme)

“I would just like to say how impressed I have been on this course. It has been a learning experience which was made all the better by having two wonderful teachers. They are non judgemental, professional and capable of delivering the course with such easy understanding techniques. I am really enjoying this course and it has been of great personal benefit to me and I hope that they will be able to continue their fantastic work and help even more people in the same situation for a long time to come.”

T.I.G.E.R (Transforming Inside Growing Emotional Resilience – intensive 3-day group trauma programme, delivered in prison and the community)

“I felt I got a great deal from these 3 days. The gentle and fair leadership shown by both Elaine and Molly was outstanding. I believe I have learnt one or two new skills to help me progress into my future.

Also the days gave me some kind of brief escapism from prison life, giving me the time and understanding support in a relaxed environment to help me consolidate, secure and stabilise my thoughts in a progressive way that will hopefully be a foundation to better personal emotional management.”

READY (2-day emotional resilience programme, delivered in prison and the community)

“I feel like I enjoyed being in a calm relaxing environment and being able to talk about myself to a small group. It was useful to have a chance to think about where I am in life and where I want to be, and realistically how I am going to get there.”
