Support Group Information
"Surviving Your Controlling Ex"
If you’ve done any research at all into emotional abuse, whether from a narcissist or someone else (which I’m guessing you probably have!), you know there are some strategies out there that can help: going “no contact”, avoiding toxic people, doing self-care, etc.
However, if you have children or another key tie with someone who has been controlling and/or abusive in the past, you also know that sometimes those strategies just don’t work.
This 5-session support series is designed for the individual who is tired of the controller always winning. It’s for the person who is sick of waiting for the other shoe to drop or the next drama to occur. It’s for the person who thinks they might deserve better, but can’t see a way past the controller’s effects on her or his life.
Group size is limited to 5 participants.
THURSDAYS from 11:45 am (check in) to 1:00 pm
Bring your lunch if you want. Water, coffee, tea available.
