Who are these programmes for?
Simple Steps to Freedom
Choose a programme and a time that suits you from our timetable. Each programme consists of 7 modules which you'll work through on a weekly basis.
Once you've had your first appointment you'll have 12 months to complete your chosen course and each week you'll build on the previous module.
As you work through the programme you'll begin to know what your body and mind are going through, why you feel as you do and understand that you're not "going crazy".
I will be with you every step of the way, using my 25+ years of experience working with women and children to help guide and support you as you develop.
My work is based on years of experience in the Violence Against Women and Girls field and, more recently in Criminal Justice, listening to and observing people’s journey’s over the past 25+ years. I began Inshiraa as I could no longer offer my work one on one, there were just too many people needing the services I provide in domestic violence and trauma recovery.
I must stress that, I am NOT a doctor, I am NOT a lawyer, I am NOT a therapist/psychologist/psychiatrist or a scholar.
For medical or legal assistance you MUST go to your doctor or find a lawyer.
