Group talk and body-oriented work

Overcomer - Sexual abuse by a family member in childhood

Online via Zoom with registration

You are free to attend when it's suitable for you, without having to attend every 2 weeks. Just then when you think it's time to do so.

 

Participants will see only me during the Zoom talk. In this way, privacy is retained vis-à-vis other participants.

 

 

Feel free to talk with others. It liberates!

 

Participation is open to women and men who experienced abuse with a sexual background in childhood.

Due to therapeutic and other work on themselves, the participants have more or less processed what has happened. Nevertheless, you would like to get closer to yourself and perceive yourself in an exchange with others in a protected environment.

 

You have been working on this topic with your therapist for a while in one-on-one discussions and are looking for interaction with other affected persons as a complimentary.

 

This group is deliberately intended for both men and women. The taboo subject that girls and boys are sexually abused not only by men but also by women is taken into account here.

 

Content:

Anyone who is physically abused is inevitably also abused psychologically. And those who were forced to watch sexual acts as a child or to engage in them with a third party can often find it difficult to deal with their body. 

It is important to build trust in the same and the opposite sex, to find trust in yourself and to become free from feelings of shame.

It is also important to abandon old patterns, to feel good in your own body, to strengthen self-confidence and to break away the dependence from the opinions of others.

 

In this group there is the possibility to get a personal insight into how others deal with their situation, their development and the setbacks. The exchange with others should give stability and help classify and structure one's own feelings.

 

Each participant has to involve in the discussion round. 

In particular, the experiences of others can help to a certain extent to reflect on oneself, even if everyone has their own way of perceiving and coping with what they have experienced. It is important to stay focused on your yourself, to be grateful and to recognize that you can now take your own life into your own hands and live independently in the here and now.

 

At the beginning and at the end of each group session we will do a short meditation.

 

The meetings take place virtually on Zoom and are moderated by me personally.

As soon as the general situation allows it again, we will also meet for personal workshops. During thous we will work body-oriented. The workshops include meditation along with breathing techniques, movement, as well as energy work. The participants feeling certain enough can also interact with someone else. This includes for example, percuss and wipe the back of others. Hugs are also very welcome, as long as it’s the wish of other person.

Group rules:

All participants are always mutual to be treated with respect.

 

What is being said stays in the room / chat and no names are passed on to anyone.

 

The group is open to ice ones emotions related to the own situation. The heart should be opened. Therefore it is only suitable if no psychotropic drugs are taken so that everyone can be their true self. It is also important to avoid other substances such as alcohol or other intoxicating substances before and during the online meeting.

 

The group is to be understood as «self-coaching in the group» and is based on personal responsibility. It is not a psychotherapy. If a one-on-one coaching session is desired after a meeting, I will offer it in my praxis. If we see that the topic is still too profound, I will refer the person to a (his) therapist or coach of their choice after mutual agreement. If necessary, my collaboration with the participant's therapist can be organized. For this, everyone will receive a document for consent to be signed.

 

Participants may of course take notes about what they learn for themselves.
