Help for those who harm


Let’s make one thing clear: we’re not here to judge. We know there are hundreds of possible reasons that you’ve got to this point and all we want to do now is help. We’ve helped thousands of people who have used harmful behaviours toward people closest to them to make positive changes in their lives, moving towards a happier, healthier future. You can do the same. 
 
Lockdown is a stressful time for most of us. You might feel anxious. Depressed. Restless. Frustrated. Bored. Irritable. That’s completely understandable. But if it feels as though conflict, confrontation, anger and aggression have become worse or your behaviour is worrying you within your household, perhaps now is the time to reach out for help? 
 
Self-help tools
 
Our recovery programmes for people who harm have moved online due to the social distancing measures in place at the moment, but there are some self-help tools that might be useful for all at home which we thought we would share:
 
1. Time out  2. Calm breathing 3. Body mapping

In an emergency, ring 999 – the police will be prioritising your calls.

In Cheshire East we provide a 24/7 helpline for anyone who needs support.

You can get in touch with the Cheshire East Domestic Abuse Hub by phoning: 0300 123 5101 or emailing cedah@cheshireeast.gov.uk [This may not be the most secure way to get in touch because you’re sending personal information over the internet, but if it’s your only way it’s better than nothing.

Please think about who has access to your emails before you do this.] - text   07771941464 We can call you back to save your credit or arrange to speak to you at a time when you can talk without your children or partner overhearing. 

You can also visit MyCWA website www.mycwa.org.uk/people-who-harm if you’re not ready or not able to contact us. 


IRIS LOGO

The staff in your practice are trained about domestic abuse and specialist workers are available to support you. Your practice is an IRIS practice. You can talk to doctors, nurses and other staff working here if you are being hurt or controlled by your current or ex-partner, are afraid of someone at home or a member of your family.

You can also contact 0300 123 7047 option 2 and ask to speak to your local IRIS Advocate Educator.

The Open the Door website also has lots of information to help if you or someone you know who is in a relationship that doesn’t quite feel right.

Visit womensaid.org.uk/cover-your-tracks-online/ for advice and access to self-support services.
