They know the truth

Societal reaction to an abused person oscillates wildly with physical age, gender, sexual orientation, cultural heritage and religious dogma.

You know the truth

Without prejudice, survivors deserve unbiased respect; lawful protection; affordable or free legal defence; accessible local support and safe refuge networks.

We know the truth

Abuse devastates body, mind and spirit. With knowledge and support, together we can end it for all people everywhere.

Abuse is spiteful and degrading. Abuse hurts - abuse destroys. No one asks for it. No creature deserves it. None of us should live with it or put up with it. Period." - Quote by Sherry Jackson from Heart 2 Heart Living - 2003

You are not a victim - you're a survivor.  And we're glad you found us.

Life inside an abusive relationship is lonely and humiliating. No one and no living thing is safe from the possibility of a bully, an abuser or personality disordered individual trying to take advantage, do harm, use or manipulate for their own benefit. You may feel like you are the only one - you are not.

  • Are you here because you know you are being abused? Do you think you might be, but aren't sure?
  • Do you want to leave but you are afraid or don't know how to go about it? Are you planning to leave or want to leave an abusive relationship and you need support?
  • Are you here because you have recently ended an abusive relationship and you need to understand what happened to you, how it happened, why it happened and how you can best reclaim your life?

We're a self-help resource and support network for abused women and men. Here, you will begin understanding and healing, all in complete privacy - all in your own time.

We're a safe, quiet place to find the answers you need to start living your life on your terms.

You own the right to be treated with kindness, love and respect. Claim it! It's time for you to gather up your spirit and rejoin the world. You have been alone and hurt for long enough.

Now it's your time to fly - to thrive and become all that you can be. Your survival instinct has kicked in. Welcome back

Emotional abuse is underneath all other types of abuse. The most damaging aspect of abuse is the trauma to our hearts and souls from being betrayed by the people that we love and trust. - Robert Burney
