Empowerment After Domestic Abuse Course

The Empowerment Course is a 12-week educational programme for those who have experienced domestic abuse. The course aims to aid recovery and increase confidence, self-esteem and empowerment.

The Empowerment course is a free 12-week educational programme for abused women to focus on themselves and their own power to change the course of their lives. This course was written and Licensed by More Positive Me CIC.

The Empowerment course aims to enable women to begin to understand the problem of abuse and its impact on the entire family, to become aware of their lifelong patterns, to set realistic goals, and to learn techniques for developing new patterns of their own choosing.

We previously facilitated The Pattern Changing course before moving to The Empowerment course in 2023. The first Pattern Changing course in Devon was run in North Devon in 2001, meaning NDADA has been empowering women on their recovery journey for over 20 years.

To make the courses as accessible as possible they are held across the Northern Devon region including Torridge and online, as often as possible. NDADA facilitates around 6-9 courses per year.

“I am now able to ask for what I need and say “no”. Doing the course has helped me in all my relationships. The changes in my life have been very subtle but very positive.”

“I know that I have the right to say “no” and put myself first. I have become an assertive, confident woman instead of a controlled, suicidal wreck. I have no doubts that this is thanks to Pattern Changing.”

“For the first time in my life, I opened my eyes and really looked at the patterns my relationships had followed and how I could take control of my life, change the future and affect my happiness.”

For professionals: A course for up to 12 women at a time can be commissioned at a cost of £2,500.
