An eight-week, body-based, recovery program to support women who have experienced interpersonal trauma, such as family violence, to heal and move into the future with confidence.
People who experience trauma in relationships can find it challenging to experience or maintain positive feelings and wellbeing states. They may also have difficulties managing stress or impulses. It’s common for survivors of trauma to feel anxious and unsettled, or disconnected from the world around them because of an imbalance of the nervous system, which affects emotions and behaviours.
Our evidence-informed group, Right Now, uses mindfulness and other non-verbal practices such as chair-based yoga to calm the mind, promote self-compassion and restore energy and a sense of peacefulness. The program also seeks to help you reconnect with feelings of pleasure, purpose and joy.
The program will cover:
- how chronic stress affects the nervous system
- body-based soothing techniques to regulate the nervous system
- trauma-sensitive yoga
- mindfulness and visualisation
- self-compassion and gratitude
- support with how to improve your relationships
- information about improving sleep
- identifying your values and strengths, planning for the future and moving towards your best self.
