Dorset Action on Abuse

Charity description

Dorset Action on Abuse logo
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. Dorset Action on Abuse provides specialised services for adults in Dorset who were abused in childhood (including sexual, physical and emotional abuse, and neglect). We provide a one to one counselling service, Therapeutic Group Work and Creative Therapy group courses. We also provide specialised training to practitioners who work with survivors of abuse.

Survivors of childhood abuse experience social exclusion and severe disadvantage as a consequence of childhood experiences and the emotional trauma it causes. Our services allow survivors to disclose and recover from abuse in a safe setting and aim to make a lasting difference to their quality of life. Clients are able to explore feelings and issues, and to recognise, understand and overcome the root causes of their difficulties. They are aided in finding ways of dealing with past trauma and achieving self worth. This helps them to make changes that will enable them to more effectively participate in relationships, family life, work, and the community.
