Join us for PERSPECTIVE
When people are asked to sit with the complexities of sexual harm or relationship abuse as part of their work or volunteering they need a special kind of support. This work is done best when people feel nurtured, supported and connected with colleagues.
If you're looking for ways to help avoid burnout, improve connections and encourage personal and professional growth we'd love to help you with that.
Join us for REST
This work needs moments of silence.
It needs deep rest.
It needs time feeling connected to colleagues.
It needs celebration and ritual.
It needs moments when you feel thoroughly nurtured.
Join us for CEREMONY
"Justice is what love looks like in public"
As part of our exploration into healing from injustice we have developed a ceremony to act as a way of honouring our collective pain, rage, grief and hope. This ceremony is an alternative to our broken justice systems. It's a place to recognise the injustice we all hold, whether that is through lived experience of abuse, being impacted by the abuse of our loved ones, by the injustice we bear witness to in our work and activism or the injustice of living in a society that is failing to protect people from harm.
Let us take your teams through this simple but profound process so they can experience what is possible when we make space for each other and discover the justice that is possible in community.
Join us for ADVENTURE
There's nothing like an adventure to inspire, to get creative, to build relationships and to help us return home that little bit changed.

Our online personal development programme for your teams
We can support your teams as they grow in the work by offering them a space to reflect, share, grow, and feel connected to their colleagues. Our programme of four group circles can be delivered over a month or spread throughout the year, adding a rich ingredient to your CPD programme. Circle provides people with a space to pause, connect, and reflect.
Each circle is held online by Nina and Cynthia. They are 90 minutes long, can accommodate up 40 people and they centre on a particular theme. Our recommended series has the following four circles:
Circle 1: Belonging
Circle 2: Trust
Circle 3: Anger and rage
Circle 4: Endings
However, you can tailor your programme, adding sessions or swapping them to include other themes such as
Grief and loss
Pleasure and joy
Contact us if you'd like to discuss how a programme of circles could support your team development.
"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the Circle Session yesterday; it really was wonderful to have that space to talk and listen (and especially the silences) to sit with myself. What was so refreshing/reassuring was to know that I was not alone in the things I was struggling with"
