How to Build Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem after Domestic Violence – the Top Three Resources to Help Women Healing from Abuse
Rainbows Empowering Women, a Queensland based organisation that guides and supports victims of domestic abuse, helps women healing from abuse to rebuild a meaningful life.
[Survivors of domestic violence] need a reason to get out of bed day after day. Some people have a bigger reason than others, but it’s not about how big the reason is, it’s about how big the reason is for THEM.
Healing from abuse and rebuilding a meaningful life after domestic violence can be challenging, especially if the experiences are fresh and raw. With self-confidence depleted and self-esteem in tatters, moving forward into a new life that’s purposeful and positive can be a difficult transition after an abusive relationship.
Rainbows Empowering Women began after the founder, Donna Ferguson, a survivor of domestic abuse herself, recognised the gap in support services between the crisis period (leaving the situation) and resettlement phase (when life feels comfortable again). The organisation guides and supports victims of domestic violence, including any children involved, after the crisis period to rebuild a new life filled with gratitude and love. www.rainbowsempoweringwomen.com
“Rainbows Empowering Women was created because I wanted to help other women who had been affected by domestic violence relationships. There aren’t many services available for these people, to help them through the rebuilding and reconnecting stages of the healing from abuse process,” says Donna. “The most important thing these survivors need to remember when rebuilding their lives is not to set themselves up for failure. They need to surround themselves with the right people and the right support. There are resources for the immediate things like accommodation, clothing, money and food, but healing goes beyond those necessities and now there’s support for that too.”
Rainbows Empowering Women helps women with building self-esteem from the inside out, when they’re feeling low and broken, and sometimes ready to give up. “These women need a reason to get out of bed day after day. Some people have a bigger reason than others, but it’s not about how big the reason is, it’s about how big the reason is for THEM,” says Donna. www.rainbowsempoweringwomen.com
Donna recommends these three resources for vulnerable women living in Queensland:
1. Assist a Sista on the Gold Coast is one organisation that helps women and children find safe houses after they have left a domestically abusive home. They provide a house with furnishings, food packages, clothing, toys and household items to help the woman or family feel more comfortable. Supporting their cause as patrons are Shelley Craft, Mia Freedman and Rove McManus.
2. Sandbag is a group that helps women during a domestically violent relationship with counselling. They do wonderful work and are 100 per cent supported by volunteers.
3. DV Connect is a state wide Queensland telephone services that offers anyone affected by domestic or family violence a free ‘crisis hotline’ 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They offer free, professional and non-judgemental telephone support for anyone living in Queensland. www.rainbowsempoweringwomen.com
Donna also provides support through Rainbows Empowering Women. She says, “I will be holding events that will show women how to build self-confidence and rebuild their lives to attract positivity, love and gratitude. They will become empowered and emotionally free to live life with expectations of success, prosperity, love and happiness as they so deserve.”
