I’ve had time to help me recover and heal from the violence and abuse I suffered and now I’m no longer the victim. I’m no longer that person. I’m a survivor and I know the value of life. I know what it feels like to be in a relationship that’s abusive and the consequences of what being in a abusive relationship can have.
I want to share my experiences with other people who are in abusive relationships and others that have fled abuse to support them in any way possible by also offering them my friendship and letting them know that they’re not alone, despite what they have been told….They do have a way out.
Francine who founded Nested is one of my oldest friends, and without any doubt the things I’ve seen and heard her do, have motivated and inspired me so much. Some situations I’ve witnessed whilst volunteering my time with Nested have shocked and saddened me, and this has given me so much determination to do more for the people and families who are victims and survivors of domestic abuse.
My personal experiences combined with my current studies, will hopefully give me a greater insight and understanding about abusive behaviours and relationships which I’ll then pass on to others.
I always have a listening ear and I’ll provide you with all the support I can. I will be offering people who are witnessing abuse and those who have fled abusive relationships, support, encouragement and friendship through 1:1 chats and our support groups.
Together we will strengthen and empower each other.
See you all soon,
