To become responsible and loving human beings with those they are in relationship with and to support the well being of all concerned. Ahimsa has developed a unique programme aimed at opening hearts as well as minds, so that behavioural change is rooted in a responsible and loving attitude.
Standing upon and rooted in Mindfulness and Inquiry are the four principles of non-violence: Responsibility, Emotional Vulnerability, Love and Empathy, and Creativity. Alongside Mindfulness and Inquiry, guide and underpin the approach taken in addressing the major themes of the programme: Dealing with Conflict, Emotional Regulation, Partnership and Relationship, Sexual Relationship and Responsible Parenting.
Our support service offers support, safety advice and information to both current and ex partners of the individuals on the programme. The (ex) partner is offered direct support, ranging from regular telephone contact, information about other services such as solicitors and housing, through to a therapeutic programme to support the healing process, empowerment and assisting in personal development.
