Support through connection

Learning to feel safe ‘enough’ with another person, or within a group, can be an important part of a survivor’s journey. For many survivors it can be hard to identify a person with whom you do feel safe. It can be hard to begin to trust them. It is important to try and identify your safe person or people.

The following are possible people or groups who can provide you with support:

  • Family
  • Friends, neighbours or work colleagues
  • Peer groups: like a local drop-in centre, support group or sports club
  • Counsellor or therapist, case worker, support worker, GP or other professional
  • Therapeutic groups
  • Groups with activities you enjoy e.g. sport, hobbies, music, singing, dancing
  • Different processes survivors have found helpful - Yoga, meditation, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotion-Focussed Therapy (EFT) neurofeedback etc.

“It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”

"At last there is some sound education and empathetic support for individuals and partners impacted by such gross boundary violations.”
