I want to make changes

Relationships can be challenging and make us feel vulnerable.

Being intimate with someone means getting close enough to get hurt. This means our emotions feel stronger than they do with other people: we can get frustrated, feel jealous and worry when things aren’t working how we want them to. We sometimes find ourselves behaving in ways which hurt or scare the people around us, and make us feel bad about ourselves. But it’s never too late to start making changes.

How we can help

Changes is a voluntary programme that assists people who are concerned they might be hurting, scaring or controlling their partner, and who want help to make things better. We help them to make positive changes in their life so they stop their abusive behaviour towards their partners or ex-partners.

This service is completely free of charge and tailored to meet individual needs.

We provide one-to-one assessments, individual and group-work sessions which help people to understand relationship difficulties, how to take responsibility for abusive behaviour, and how to make positive changes for themselves, their partners/ex-partners, and their children (if they have any).

We accept referrals from a variety of sources, including self-referrals. Our referring criteria is as follows:

You’ll be initially invited to attend an assessment, complete a risk assessment and work through an initial evaluation. Once complete, you’ll be invited to attend a series of group sessions. The group is facilitated by professionals and delivers a structured programme which addresses different forms of abusive behaviour.

Sessions will include:
