Helping Women Heal
Women of all ages and cultures deal with difficult situations that can make them feel hopeless, unhappy and more. These women can become consumed by various types of abuse that isolate them from their relationships, jobs and even family.
Here are a few types of abuse they may experience:
- The silent treatment
- Controlling behaviour
- Preventing friendships
- Verbal threats
- Unwanted physical contact such as pushing and choking

“I am incredibly grateful for the unconditional support I received through attending the ‘When Love Hurts’ support group in Surrey with Kristina. She facilitated a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental, informative support group – I highly recommend this group.
Prior to attending, I was anxious and apprehensive. I did not know what to expect. I felt emotionally & physically depleted and ‘beat down’ – essentially, a wreck.
The group allowed me to share my story confidentially (as I was able). I genuinely felt safe and supported.
No two stories were alike, however many had similar themes. I witnessed, through listening, that everyone had their own unique experience.
I was not judged, I was supported. I returned to my partner – again, not judged. I finally left when I was strong enough to do so.
‘Leaving’ was not the goal of the group. The purpose of the group was to enable me to decide what was ‘right’ for me – whatever that looked like. For this reason, I felt respected & honoured.
I was in a relationship where I had been emotionally, psychologically, financially, sexually and physically abused. I am happy to say, I am no longer there!
Participating in the ‘When Love Hurts’ support group, most definitely saved my life – I have no doubt”.
