The Another Way Women's Foundation is absolutely delighted to have provided funding to Survivors' Network, the rape crisis centre for Sussex, to provide Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness (TSM) sessions to female-identifying survivors of sexual violence.
TSM aims to help those who have experienced trauma explore some of the benefits mindfulness can bring; such as enjoying the present moment, cultivating self-compassion, developing concentration, and managing challenging thoughts and feelings.
The courses, which provide an alternative to groupwork and talking therapies, are delivered by Katie, a qualified Mindfulness teacher who is trained specifically in trauma-sensitive approaches.
Stay tuned for more information in July once they have delivered the first course!
You can find out more about the courses, and Survivors' Network's other services, here.
