16 Days of Activism Blog – Therapeutic Services



The impact of domestic abuse is not just recovery from physical injuries. Domestic abuse causes long-term significant emotional harm to individuals. Living with coercive, controlling behaviours everyday is shattering for the individual and removing themselves from the abusive situation is just the beginning. At Changing Pathways we offer a range of services to support individuals at every stage of their journey in recovering from the devastating impact of domestic abuse.

Debbie, our Therapeutic Services Manager shares an insight into her role at Changing Pathways. In my role, I am responsible for overseeing our qualified and ‘in training’ counsellors who volunteer their time to support our service users and empower their recovery from their experiences. A typical day for me includes providing case management supervision for our placement counsellors, conducting a clinical session with a service user, completing assessment sessions for new service users and working with our Duty Worker to coordinate our upcoming sessions. I am motivated to be in a position as a counselling psychologist to enable women, children and young people to achieve a stronger sense of self and identity, higher self-esteem and self-worth and to enable them to have confidence in the choices and decisions that they make and for them to be able to gain more self-awareness about what a healthy relationship is.
