If you have been abusive within a relationship and would like help to change your behaviour you may find our Choose2Change programme useful.
What is Choose2Change?
Choose2Change is a service to increase the safety of victims of domestic abuse through working with the perpetrator. The service can work with perpertators in both one-to-one setting and a group setting depending on the individuals and their location.
It is an intervention that includes assessment for suitability, a structured motivational programme and goal setting and is delivered over a minimum period of six months. So quite a commitmment.
Support sessions are also provided for the partner or ex-partner to ensure a safety plan is implemented and there is a good understanding of the programme itself.
We welcome enquiries form anyone who wants to change their behaviour, older or younger, gay straight or bi, male or female, anywhere in Wales.
What happens at the end of the programme?
Once the programme has been successfully completed, and the couple have both actively engaged throughout, then there is potential to continue into Relationship Counselling with a Relate Counsellor, if it is deemed safe to do so.
The Relate Cymru Choose2Change programme is accredited by Respect.
