Aftercare Women's Group

What is the women's group about?

  • be connected with other women through listening and sharing
  • feel validated in a safe space where your own uniqueness and value is heard
  • develop new ways of looking at things and new skills
  • find acceptance and self-discovery
  • learn to trust in yourself and others through respectful sharing
  • recognise your own strengths and courage and that in others as well
  • develop a greater awareness of self-care and move towards being your own best friend
  • explore what it is to accept and know your own limits but also to set boundaries that lead to self-care
