Course Overview

When we think of abusive relationships, images of bruised and battered women come to mind. However not all abuse is physical. And sometimes the wounds we can’t see leave the biggest scars.

Physical wounds heal with time. Many emotional ones do not. And we are left feeling fragile and worthless. Many of us are unaware that verbal, emotional or financial abuse is the cause of our pain. But once you come to understand the types and cycles of abuse and how you can empower yourself, you can make changes in your life to regain your power and self-esteem.

It’s easy enough to judge and say we should all get out of abusive relationships and leave our worries behind. But whether for financial, emotional, religious / cultural or other reasons, leaving our abuser is not always possible. This course will arm you with the tools and strength you need to make that decision for yourself.

If you choose to stay – you will have the knowledge and understanding of how to empower yourself and take back control from your abuser.

If you decide to leave – you will have the support, strength and understanding of how to take the next steps in your life.

Benefits of Taking this Course

  • Are you constantly sad or feel worthless?
  • Do you feel as if your spouse, partner or significant other does not value you?
  • Are you constantly anxious and worried that you are doing something wrong?
  • Or fear that you will be reprimanded for your misdeed?
  • Are you constantly trying your best in every situation, but know that it still won’t be good enough?
  • Do you ‘walk on eggshells’ afraid of when the next blow up will come?
  • Do you feel lost or disconnected from the outside world?
  • Have you cut off other close relationships because of your partner?
  • Have you lost your identity or sense of who you are?

If any of these sound familiar, whether you are aware of it or not, there’s a good chance you are in an abusive relationship.

There are several different basic types of personalities. And one of these is the narcissistic sociopath. Chances are your abuser has this personality type. They will insult, belittle and criticize you (sometimes in a teasing / joking way), pushing your boundaries until you finally speak up. Then they use your reactions to make you seem crazy. Within weeks, they can turn an easy-going person into a hot mess of insecurities and self-doubt.

This course will help you to find your inner strength to deflect the torrent of abuse. And empower you to feel happier and more fulfilled in your daily life.

Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you’ve ever been to stand up taller than you ever were before.
