We understand that it is an anxious time, recognising that you need help with your abusive behaviour. Some individuals may have been abusive for decades, we are here to support you step by step and help you find the right tools to prevent you from being abusive in the future. We are here to help you get back in the right direction.
We can support individuals in a heterosexual, gay, lesbian or transgender relationship, whether the perpetrator is male, female or non binary.
The most basic level you need to recognise and accept full responsibility for your own actions, attitudes and feelings and express a desire to change your behaviour and attitude to stop any abusive behaviour. We would encourage you to get in touch and talk to one of the team initially about your personal circumstances if you are unsure if the programme is for you or not.
A prior requirement for attending the programme is that you give Ahimsa the necessary information that will allow the support service to contact partners who have recently been, or are currently in, an intimate relationship with you. This also applies to any future relationship you may get into whilst being on the programme, so that during your time on the programme the support service will contact any future partner. You are required to give similar information regarding all previous partners with whom you have children, where there is contact or attempts to gain contact with these children.
All the (ex) partners who have or have recently had some level of involvement with the individual can be given information about what the treatment programme can and cannot achieve and what it involves. Our position is that the individual is 100% responsible for their violent and abusive behaviour, and the work with them follows on from this.
Our aim is to help you to achieve a loving and fulfilling non-abusive relationship whether in your current relationship or in new future relationships.
