Own My Life

We are delighted that 3 of our dedicated women’s support workers have undergone training in the exciting and pioneering Own My Life course:

The Own My Life course is an innovative, creative and educational 12-week course for women.  It supports women in regaining ownership of their lives when they have subjected to abuse or violence by partner.  This is done through short videos, structured discussions, group and individual activities, and a comprehensive learning journal.


WAO looks forward to soon being able to add this to women’s toolkits for moving their lives forward from abuse. It aims to empower women to take back control of our:

  • Lives
  • Body
  • Choices
  • Relationships
  • World
  • Feelings

Women tell us that the course is helping them understand all sorts of things such as how the brain works and trauma, recognising a toxic relationship and the ways that society and the media affects their lives.
