Women Making Choices

A free, online program for women in the Kew area who currently feel or have previously felt powerlessness as a result of experiencing a range of controlling and abusive behaviours.

Feelings of worthlessness, not being good enough and feeling blamed for the negative aspects of the relationship are often present.

This is an opportunity for women to share their experiences, gain greater understanding, offer support to others and receive support through an educative, therapeutic and supportive group.

Coping with abusive relationships is difficult. Many women have found that coming together to share their experiences and receive information has enabled them to gain an insight into understanding family relationships together with providing them with much needed support.

The group program will cover topics such as:

  • understanding family relationships
  • safety issues for all family members
  • exploring patterns of behaviour
  • self-care
  • impact on children
  • parenting
  • healthy relationships
  • information, services and resources available
  • anger and conflict management
  • problem solving
  • emotional self-care.


6 x weekly group sessions. No groups are currently scheduled.

Other information 

A free assessment is required before participating in the group.

In order to participate in this program, women must be currently separated from and living apart from the perpetrator of the violence.

Babies and children are not able to attend.
